Odds for relegation

Recommended Posts

Hull at 25/1 yet Leeds at 80/1?

I know it's unlikely, but more than three times as unlikely as Hull after the start both have had? How do they come up with this stuff?

Pretty sure those odds will be from pre-season.

Live odds as far as I can see....if they don't changed them I'd be surprised ....think Broncos were 6-1 on at start

I was going to start a thread on the relegation battle. Early days but with the three big favourites for relegation getting off to a decent start it could be a really interesting one.

If either Leeds or Wigan finish bottom and Toronto win the championship i have no doubt that Toronto wont be promoted or we have a 13 team Super League next season.

That's what little faith in the people running our game nowadays

The relegation battle is going to be stressful and a bit sad for all those involved.

Given the results we’ve seen so far this year (which are getting more unpredictable by the week) then I would propose focusing on the playoffs.

Hopefully we’ve reached a situation where every team believes they have a chance of making the top five if they can find some consistency and get players healthy.

That is something to look forward to

Given it takes two years for any penalty, of which you can cry about and get it taken away, if you’re Leeds and/or Wigan and you’re in trouble come the back end of the season, wouldn’t it just be easier to sign three or four, break the salary cap, stay up and then worry about the consequences in 2021?

Thats not how it works though. The bookies arent saying one in 80 times leeds will get relegated.

They just have loads more people who have bet on Hull to go down and very few people have bet on Leeds.

If that's the case wouldn't it be easier for Saints or Warrington to do the same so they can finally win a big game ?

London 1/3

Huddersfield 11/2

Hull KR 7/1

Salford 9/1

 

Wow! Do you/anyone know if any odds are being offered on London to stay up? If they're that odds on to go down, the opposite bet would certainly be worth a few quid surely!

I’m not sure what the odds are on that - you’d probably have to speak directly to your bookmakers.

Still London but I'd say we are 4/6 not 1/3

I'm a fervent non gambler but I do like to look at the odds from a sporting point of view

Yes, they do seem a little harsh given London’s good start so far.

Well, yes, Leeds did pick up a shock win away at Salford, but I'm not sure I'd call that "a decent start".

In the next two weeks there's Huddersfield v KR and London v Huddersfield. Couple of massive games there for the Giants, ones they need to be winning if they're going to get out of a relegation scrap.

Still hard to see past London, KR, Hudds going down for me.  Can't see Salford going down.  It all depends how long London can maintain this impressive form.  Surely Leeds and Wigan will turn it around, although id be a little nervous if I was a Leeds fan right now.

I am referring to the boylesports odds, the 25/1 for Hull etc. The Betway ones seem to be more like what you would expect now.

If you go on the boylesports site there is no relegation market to be seen. They might have been updated at some stage since the season began, but they aren't current odds.

If they are 4/11 to go down then theoretically they are 11/4 to stay up, but the bookies always take an edge so you would be looking at around 9/4 or maybe 5/2 if you're lucky.
