Interesting to see how the Premier League relegation odds are looking after this latest round of games, Newcastle coming back to win against Bournemouth.
Before the season started, the bookies made Newcastle United a comfortable mid-table finisher.
However, after 12 games it is interesting to see how they view it with almost a third of the season gone.
This is how the Premier League table now looks on Sunday night after the NUFC win on Saturday and now the conclusion of this round of PL fixtures ahead of the international break:
A bit of a surprise, for me anyway, that despite putting a seven point gap between themselves and the relegation zone, Newcastle are still as low as 11/4 to go down, after being 2/1 before this weekend’s games.
The way the bookies appear to be seeing it is Norwich (2/9) are now pretty much doomed but Watford (11/10) and Southampton (11/8) are still given every chance of getting out of it.
A bit mad that Sheffield United are as high as fifth and yet are still as low as 6/1 to go down. The bookies still thinking a chance of their bubble bursting but I can’t see it.
The Premier League table is incredibly tight though, with 11 clubs separated by only three points – fifth (Sheffield United – 17 points) to fifteenth (Everton – 14 points).
A tough trio of games after the international break for Newcastle which would take us up to the 15 game mark, with Villa away, Man City home and Sheff Utd away. If NUFC are still seven or more points above the bottom three after those matches, I think the season will probably be safe from relegation as a minimum.
