Everton have only ever been out of the top flight of English football twice. The first time was when they were relegated at the end of the 1929/30 season, and the second time was at the end of the 1950/51 season.

They are currently sitting second from bottom of the English Premier League at exactly halfway through the season. The question being asked here is, how likely is it that Everton will be relegated? Find out more right here.

What is the likelihood of Everton getting relegated?

To better understand the likelihood of Everton getting relegated at the end of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign, you may want to study and compare the odds currently being offered at today’s most trusted sports betting sites.

Bet on football with William Hill today, for example, and you are likely to come across these odds, which are accurate at the time of writing. Everton are currently second odds-on favourite team to be relegated from the Premier League, along with Bournemouth (odds-on favourite to get relegated) and Southampton.

Let’s take a closer look at the latest odds for this particular market.

  • Everton – It’s not looking good for the Toffees. They are currently priced at 7/10 in UK fractional odds to go down at the end of the season. In European decimal odds, it’s the same as saying 8.00. If you prefer American/moneyline odds, it’s -143. It also means that Everton have a whopping 58.8% implied probability rate of going down to the Championship. Therefore, it’s looking fairly certain they will get relegated
  • Bournemouth – The Cherries are currently priced at 33/100 (which is 1.33, or -303). This team has a 75.20% chance of getting relegated
  • Southampton – It’s also looking bad for The Saints, who are currently priced at 17/20 (1.85, or -118). This team has a 54.10% chance of getting relegated

Behind these three favourites are Leicester City, Nottingham Forest, and Wolverhampton Wanderers. All three of these teams are currently priced at 11/4 (275, or 3.75), with a 26.70% chance of getting relegated.
