Premier League relegation odds – All change after Newcastle United defeat to Aston Villa
Interesting to see how the Premier League relegation odds are looking after this latest round of games, Newcastle really poor as they lost at Aston Villa.
Before the season started, the bookies made Newcastle United a comfortable mid-table finisher.
However, after 13 games it is interesting to see how they view it with now over a third of the season gone.
This is how the Premier League table now looks on Tuesday after the NUFC’s defeat at Villa Park and now the conclusion of this round of PL fixtures:
Monday night was the opportunity for Newcastle to convince people that they really aren’t relegation contenders but they did anything but.
Before the match the bookies had Aston Villa as the most likely team to replace one of the current bottom three by the end of the season but now that is Newcastle United.
Despite having six other clubs below them in the table the bookies now make Newcastle only 2/1 to go down.
Newcastle now have two tough games with Man City home and Sheff Utd away, the way those two are playing it will be a positive if Newcastle add any points in these two matches.
The bookies clearly think Southampton are the team in the bottom three most likely to get out of trouble and it took a 96th minute goal on Saturday to prevent the Saints taking all three points. Indeed, despite not winning and now second bottom, Southampton’s relegation odds actually went out from 11/8 to 7/4.
In their next two games Southampton play both Watford and Norwich at home, a real possibility they could pick up all six points.
They then come to St James Park to face Newcastle on Sunday 8 December for what could prove to be a key game.
