The latest round of fixtures has been staggered across two weeks to provide England's top-flight clubs with a mini winter break and Bournemouth, Brighton and Watford now face a nervy few weeks as they wait for their rivals to play after disappointing results.
The Seagulls hosted the Hornets on Saturday and the two sides played out a 1-1 draw on the south coast. Watford took an early lead through Abdoulaye Doucoure but an Adrian Mariappa own goal saw Brighton rescue a point.
Before the match kicked off, Albion will have viewed this as a winnable fixture but after falling behind they will have been delighted to salvage a draw. The result keeps Graham Potter's men out of the bottom three and three points clear of danger, while Watford are second from bottom and a point adrift of safety - although that gap could increase if Aston Villa win next weekend.
Brighton are now a top price of 9/2 to be relegated and Watford still represent real value at 15/8. The Hornets have improved under Nigel Pearson but have managed to take just two points from their last three league games - having taken the lead in all three of those matches.
Crystal Palace are 9/1 to be relegated and they are six points clear of danger, and they are an option as an outside bet as they have hit a rough patch in form and are winless in their last eight games across all competitions after Saturday's 3-1 loss at Everton.
Bournemouth were the big losers this weekend as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at European chasing Sheffield United after taking a 1-0 lead. The Cherries are two points clear of danger but could be in the bottom three by the time they play again and Eddie Howe's men are a best price of 5/4 to go down.
West Ham should have been in action on Sunday but their trip to Manchester City was called off due to Storm Ciara. The Hammers sit in 18th spot and are 11/8 to be relegated.
