There’s eight games left (nine if you’re Wigan) and there are sure to be more twists and turns before the relegation spots are decided.
But it was a big weekend just gone, with Aston Villa beating QPR and Wigan toppling Newcastle.
There’s a lot to be said for momentum at this time of year, but it does look that those who prove the most consistent will keep their heads above water.
For all Harry Redknapp’s confident posturing, QPR really do look to have too much ground to make up and the same comment applies to Reading. If that’s the case then it’s a case of finding the third team to go down to fill the bet365 relegated teams bet.
If you feel Wigan will join them on the way down, it’s 13/8 – while if you feel it will be Aston Villa than can be backed at 11/4 – while at bigger odds of 14/1 you can have Southampton joining the current bottom two in the drop zone.
