Who Is Going Down? Tips On The Contenders By

For many English football fans there is not much left to shout for or about this season. Most League teams have completed their seasons. Only the Premier League and play-offs are still active. If your team's season is done and dusted then one way of spicing up the remainder of the season is to have a punt on the outcome of the few positions still up for grabs. If you are new to betting don't worry. Check this out to learn more about betting lines if you are unfamiliar with the terminology used. Now all you need to do is decide who to back.

With only one full round of Premier League games to go, almost all of the key positions have been decided. Chelsea are champions, the top four are confirmed, and Burnley and Queen's Park Rangers will be playing Championship football next season. There are two big issues left to decide. Which two teams will be joining Aston Villa in the Europa League, and which team will be joining Burnley and QPR in the Championship. With the greatest respect to the Europa League, the battle to avoid the drop is the one that will grab attention and headlines. It is also the hardest to predict.

At the time of writing there are three teams still fighting to avoid filling the last relegation spot. Sunderland, Newcastle United and Hull City have the unpleasant task of sweating over their Premier League survival. Last weekend's results saw Leicester City and Aston Villa join those who have already secured survival, despite neither winning their respective games. We are down to three.

On paper Sunderland look the safest. They could very well already have enough points in the bag. It would take an extremely unlikely combination of events to relegate the Black Cats. Unlikely but not impossible.
