Sunderland's sponsor makes the Black Cats favorites for relegation

BY Thomas Hautmann • August 19, 2015

Having a betting website as your main kit sponsor might be cool and all ... until they install you as the odds-on favorites to get relegated!

Yes, really. 

Sunderland sponsor Dafabet made the Black Cats a 5/8 favorite for the drop after defeats to Leicester City and Norwich saw Dick Advocaat's side fall to last place in the standings. This comes on the heels of three straight seasons in which Sunderland just narrowly escaped the Premier League cellar.
