Newcastle Could Be Safe Before Wigan Even Play

9 years ago

Newcastle United could be safe by the end of Sunday.

That would mean we didn’t need a result from the final game of the season against Arsenal.

The way this can happen involves the correct result coming about in two games.

The first, interestingly, is on Saturday. There is only one Premier League match on Saturday; Villa v. Chelsea. We need Chelsea to win that one.

All of the other games this weekend are on Sunday because of the cup final.

With the benefit of the knowledge of a win for Chelsea on Saturday, we would then need Newcastle to win at QPR. That would give us 41 points and because Wigan play Villa on the final day, they wouldn’t both be able to reach 41. That would make us safe by Sunday evening.

Failing that, if we gain either one or three points at QPR, Arsenal can make us safe next Tuesday by beating Wigan.

Any combination of results, other than the above, means our fate will be decided on the final day of the season when we play Arsenal…

If Wigan win the FA Cup BetVictor will refund losing Correct Score, First/Last Goalscorer, Scorecast & Man of the Match bets up to a maximum of £50 per person/house.  For full terms and conditions click HERE
