The bookies have now revised their Premier League relegation odds for this 2018/19 season.

After Newcastle United finished 10th last May, the bookies made the Magpies a very safe bet to avoid relegation worries, pricing them at 6/1 to go down this season.

After a shocking transfer window where Mike Ashley insisted on a £20m+ profit on deals, rather than a major net investment in the squad, the bookies shortened Newcastle’s relegation odds down to 9/2.

Newcastle’s turbulent 3-2 defeat to Man Utd leaves them 19th in the table, only kept off the bottom on goal difference from Cardiff.

The bookies have now adjusted their odds accordingly (see below), with Newcastle United now only a 9/4 chance to go down.

As you can see, both Cardiff and Huddersfield were the hot favourites to be relegated and they remain so.

The question for many people,was simply who would join them as the third relegated club.

At the moment, Fulham (6/4) and Burnley (7/4) are rated more likely than Newcastle by BetVictor, whilst Brighton and Southampton are close by with both of them 5/1.

By the time the next round of Premier League games have been played, we could see a real shakedown of the Premier League relegation odds and a more decisive look.

Fulham are home to Arsenal and Southampton host Chelsea, both this Sunday afternoon. Victory for Fulham would surely see them priced higher than Newcastle for the drop, as they would be then six points clear of Rafa’s team.

After the international break the games include Newcastle v Brighton, Cardiff v Fulham and Bournemouth v Southampton.

A victory for Newcastle would be massive but anything less and the bookies are very likely to see the noose tightening for the Magpies.

People keep saying that Brighton at home is the start of Newcastle’s run of winnable games, lets hope they are right.

    Ashley’s associates probably have big bets on Newcastle going down on his behalf.
    Stay up or go down it’s a win win.
    Where there’s a profit and all that ..

  • Rob

    At present things are that bad that I feel like we’re robbing a championship side of an opportunity to compete and have a good season in the premier league.

    There is so little to enjoy and then when we get some hope the team contrive to throw it away.

  • Leicester Mag

    Yesterday showed how football is a 14 man game, subs a integral aspect built into the match tactics rather than insurance for injuries. That being the case how the truck can we survive when our bench wouldn’t strengthen the team down the local pub on a Sunday morning? Who is the visionary who scouted Atsu/ Hosulu and spent £10M+ on Murphy? Norfolk and Hell chance us surviving at this rate

  • Leazes.

    You are an absolute clown Van der Velde!

  • Tweed Mag

    Betting odds are probably the only statistics Ashley understands, or takes notice of.

  • JohnnyH

    Can’t see us winning about half of the remaining games to get past the 40 point mark.

    • HarryHype59

      Cardiff and possibly Huddersfield could be worse than NUFC. I cannot think of a third side who could finish below Newcastle United.

  • BanJones

    There is a train coming down the track, it is called Fulham FC and it arrives on the last day of the season – we all know what happens then.

  • Wezza

    6/1 to go down.
    I don’t want to hear IF Rafa is backed in January… he won’t. IF money was going to be spent it would have been in the summer.
    All the makings of relegation and defeat to Brighton will surely shorten those odds.

  • Waxi

    It might not be a bad thing if we do go down for a few seasons as that’s about the only way we will get rid of the FCB. If we are making peanuts he will dump us.

    • graham18

      Thats been my point.lets go down lower than the championship to get rid of him-its the only way.

      • HarryHype59

        Perhaps we could do a “Sunderland” and go down to league 1.

      • Waxi

        You have a good point. I wonder if the FCB tries to spend his way out of trouble in January to avoid the drop.

  • HarryHype59

    Fatty’s gamble that the team could generate £20m profit in transfers and still avoid the drop, is looking like a huge misjudgement.
