Hull Hang In The Balance At 1/5 For Relegation

Hull’s relegation fate is all but sealed having suffered at 2-0 defeat to Tottenham.

Lying third from bottom they have shortened even further to go down to the Championship and can now be backed at 1/5 from 4/11.

It was a case of too little too late for bottom of the table QPR when they secured a 2-1 win over Newcastle. Newcastle continue to hang just above the relegation line but have been pushed out to 6/1 from 11/2.

Sunderland remain in contention for relegation and although they did not manage three points over Leicester they are currently the biggest priced side to go down at 8/1.

Hull may be 1/5 to go down to the Championship but the biggest loser in the book is Newcastle. Punters have been opting for Newcastle at 6/1 after their shock defeat to QPR.

Sunderland are still in danger of relegation with three points separating them and third from bottom Hull but it will take a lot for the Black Cats to lose the run of themselves now.
