Interesting to look at what as happened to the Newcastle betting odds after three wins in a row.
The trio of Premier League victories has massively lifted United fans’ spirits but what has it done to the odds?
Starting at the top, Rafa Benitez lifting the PL title sees Newcastle with only six clubs on shorter odds, though whilst Manchester City are even money, Newcastle are 500/1.
For Newcastle to stay in the top four you are still looking at a massive 200/1, whilst super optimists may look at the 40/1 on ‘only’ ending up top six.
What about making top half though, which last season showed could be achievable for almost every club, when only six points separated 8th and 17th.
The bookie still make Newcastle 11/8 to end up top 10, so despite the wins they still it as most likely that Rafa and his players will finish below 10th spot.
As for the three clubs that came up, Newcastle are odds on 1/2 to finish about Huddersfield and Brighton, with Wagner’s team 3/1 and Chris Hughton’s boys 4/1.
As for the doom and gloom merchants, you can not get a sizeable 11/1 on NUFC relegation!
1/1 Man City
5/2 Man Utd
500/1 Newcastle United
