Newcastle & Sunderland Dodge A Bullet

Anybody who is in denial about Newcastle being in the relegation fight had a harsh reminder of where exactly United are at.

I caught the highlights of Manchester City v Wigan and the visiting team were by far the better team, creating the better chances and only Joe Hart prevented a heavy defeat for City (by the way, there were thousands of empty seats all around the ground, shocking when you consider they still have a very outside chance of the title, though bizarrely the crowd figure was given as only around a thousand under capacity – suggesting loads of season ticket holders just didn’t bother).

In the relegation rumble, Wigan are the big variable because while you have five teams, including Newcastle, separated by only two points, United are five points clear but Wigan had two games in hand before last night. These are the odds on relegation with the current number of points after each club.

Add some extra interest to the end of the season and have a bet on who will be relegated, all relegation odds hereespecially if you aren’t already a customer of BetVictor and take advantage of their special offer of a £25 free matched bet.

20/1 Newcastle United (36)
9/1  Norwich (35)
11/2 Sunderland (34)
4/1  Stoke (34)
3/1  Aston Villa (34)
7/4  Wigan (31)

A late Tevez goal gave us a helping hand but Wigan’s enterprising display was a world away from Newcastle’s dismal negative surrender a few weeks ago.

I have a horrible feeling that Wigan will do their usual late escape act and they are certainly looking like a team running into form, winning their other game in hand would put the cat amongst the pigeons.
