Newcastle United new odds for Premier League relegation after four games under Steve Bruce
Interesting to see how the Premier League relegation odds are looking as Newcastle head into the international break.
Before the season started, the bookies made Newcastle United a comfortable mid-table finisher this time.
However, after only one week and two games later, their verdict had very much changed, defeats to Arsenal and the very poor display against loss at Norwich.
Steve Bruce’s Newcastle became the favourites to go down at 5/4.
Sheffield United were also at 5/4 after two games, with then Norwich 11/8 after beating Newcastle.
So what impact has those four points from a possible six had on the bookies and where the money is going on for relegation?
Well, all but nothing has changed really.
Newcastle have edged only marginally out to 11/8, just slightly longer odds than the 5/4 for Norwich and Sheff Utd.
You then have Villa (7/4), Burnley and Brighton (both 9/4) and then Watford at 5/2.
Considering just how poor the Hornets have been this season, it sums up how little Newcastle ave convinced, when the bookies still rate Newcastle far more likely to go down at this early stage.
A bit harsh on Sheffield United I think, clearly the bookies thinking their early season form will fade, they were unlucky to lose to Leicester and having beat Palace and got great away draws at Bournemouth and Chelsea, that is solid form, plus they have scored in all four PL games – six goals in total.
