Bookies give odds on Newcastle winning 2018/19 Premier League, relegation, top half, and staying up
The bookies have now priced up the Premier League for the 2018/19 season.
Fulham confirmed themselves on Saturday, with Aleksandar Mitrovic’ help, as the 20th club to be guaranteed Premier League football in August.
With now less than 11 weeks for the season to kick off once again, the bookies have priced Newcastle United up for both winning the title and relegation, as well as everything in between.
When it comes to winning the league, unsurprisingly Manchester City are odds on 8/13 favourites.
When it comes to Newcastle United, they are made joint 12th favourites along with Burnley and Crystal Palace, priced at 750/1 to spring a Leicester like surprise.
Whilst Newcastle won’t be winning the title next season (…probably), the odds give a guide towards how the bookies see NUFC generally.
Whether it is finishing top four, top six, top half, bottom half, staying up, relegated, Newcastle United are generally grouped with Palace and Burnley, seen as around about 12th-14th best team in the Premier League.
Fulham, Cardiff and Huddersfield seem to be the three most likely to fail, whilst Wolves are clearly expected to spend money and do ok.
As a guide to Newcastle’s ranking, Southampton and West Ham are seen as just a little bit better.
The perceived lack of ambition with Mike Ashley, can perhaps best be seen in that despite finishing 10th this past season, Newcastle are a big 9/4 to end up top half again.
