Premier League relegation odds as bookies react to 6 games and no wins for Newcastle United
Interesting to see the impact on the Premier League relegation odds after Saturday’s latest failure for Newcastle United.
The bookies reacting as the sixth round of fixtures are played out.
The draw against Watford means that Newcastle United have picking up only three points from a possible eighteen, as well as exiting the League Cup at the first opportunity.
Some quite significant moves already after these seven results so far this weekend, with three matches still to play:
Saturday 25 September
Chelsea 0 Man City 1
Man U 0 Aston Villa 1
Everton 2 Norwich 0
Leeds 1 West Ham 2
Leicester 2 Burnley 2
Watford 1 Newcastle United 1
Brentford 3 Liverpool 3
Sunday 26 September
Southampton v Wolves (2pm)
Arsenal v Tottenham (4.30pm)
Monday 27 September
Crystal Palace v Brighton(8pm)
On Sunday morning, this is how the Premier League table now looks after Watford 1 Newcastle 1:
As you can see, after that draw on Saturday, Newcastle United have actually moved out of the relegation zone, albeit on goal difference, so how have the bookies reacted to that…
These are now the Premier League relegation odds for the likely candidates from BetVictor, in brackets are the odds that were generally available before a ball was kicked this season:
1/3 (1/1) Norwich
5/6 (3/1) Newcastle United
1/1 (5/2) Burnley
6/5 (1/1) Watford
3/1 (7/4) Crystal Palace
5/1 (7/2) Southampton
6/1 (5/1) Wolves
7/1 (5/4) Brentford
9/1 (12/1) Leeds
33/1 (10/1) Aston Villa
40/1 (8/1) Brighton
The bookies not impressed by Steve Bruce and his players crawling out of the relegation zone, no doubt registering the fact that Newcastle had a very decent run of fixtures to start the season and now have Wolves (A), Tottenham (H), Palace (A), Chelsea (H), Brighton (A), Brentford (H) and Arsenal (A) before we get to December.
These updated Premier League relegation odds show that the bookies now make Newcastle second favourites to go down after Norwich, with odds of 5/6 meaning punters and bookies think NUFC are more likely to go down than stay up, as things stand.
They are convinced that it is temporary for Leeds to be struggling as they are only 9/1 despite being bottom three, instead the bookies seeing it as most likely a four way fight for three relegation spots, between Newcastle, Norwich, Watford and Burnley.
