Rock bottom Fulham 2/1 to stay up
Fulham are languishing in last place in the Premier League and after their FA Cup exit at the hands of League One Sheffield United manager Rene Meulensteen said they had reached Rock Bottom. As such they are the only team odds-against to stay in the Premier League this season at a best price of 2/1.
With all the other teams in the relegation battle showing at least some kind of form the Cottagers have been cut adrift at the foot of the table with four straight defeats and as such are out at 2/1 with Ladbrokes to remain in the division.
The closest to them in this market are Crystal Palace who are available at just 9/10 with the same bookmaker to stay up this season.
This means there is much more value in backing a team to be relegated than to stay up with only Fulham odds-on for the drop. Palace are available at 23/20 with Boyle Sports to return to the Championship whilst 19th placed Cardiff are at 6/4 with Bet365.
A tempting bet could be Hull to be relegated at 9/2 with Bet Victor. In their last five games they have drawn once and lost four times scoring only one goal along the way.

• Spurs 11/4 to finish in top four
