Bookies Make Newcastle Favourites To Go Down After Wigan

8 years ago

Is it just me or has this season seemed to last forever?

I know we’ve had European matches as an extra but I do think this has been one of those seasons which is mad even by Newcastle United standards, with so much happening both on  AND off the pitch.

I said yesterday in my article ([intlink id=”28019″ type=”post”]The Moral Maze – Should Newcastle Fans Want Sunderland To Win[/intlink]) that despite, in theory, a mackem win would help our relegation position by keeping Villa 3 points behind us, I still wanted Sunderland to get hammered.

Well, how funny was that? Surely even those of you who thought it best if the mackems were to win, when it came to the reality of watching them getting hammered – you must have been laughing your head off along with me???

Before last night this is how the bookies saw the relegation fight;

RELEGATION ODDS (Before last night – latest odds on left and current number of points on right)

16/1 Norwich (38)
25/1 Sunderland (37)
9/1  Newcastle (37)
2/1  Aston Villa (34)
4/6  Wigan (32)

After Villa’s 6-1 humiliation of our red & white friends, the odds now look like this below.

I’m not confident of our players getting many/any points in the last three matches but this is their chance to prove the doubters wrong, if Newcastle fail to bring any points back from QPR & West Ham and/or don’t get forty points, then you don’t deserve to stay up.

We shouldn’t bother what other teams do, let’s just concentrate on OUR players getting the points on the board and if Wigan start picking up points, which I believe they will, let’s leave it to the mackems to be looking over their shoulders.

16/1 Norwich (38)
14/1 Sunderland (37)
7/1 Aston Villa (37)
 6/1 Newcastle (37)
2/5 Wigan (32)
