Newcastle Betting Odds
Newcastle are back in the Champions League after two decades away, but they’re not just there to make up the numbers, emphasised by the 4-1 demolition of Paris Saint-Germain.
With Premier League and domestic cup commitments too, it’s going to be a busy campaign for Eddie Howe’s team, so will the Toon Army end their wait for silverware?
Newcastle Premier League Top 4 Odds
Can Newcastle United achieve back-to-back top four finishes?
Well, this certainly won’t be easy, given that they now Champions League fixtures to content with, and Eddie Howe’s side certainly benefited from not having any European commitments last time round.
Nevertheless, the Magpies are only priced at 6/4 to finish in the top 4, so Bet365 certainly believe this is a realistic objective.

Newcastle Champions League Odds
Having held A.C. Milan to a goalless draw at San Siro and then smashed Paris Saint-Germain 4-1 at St James’ Park, this Champions League could hardly have started any better for Newcastle, currently top of their group.
As a result they’re only priced at 9/1 to reach the final at Wembley, while the Magpies are 20/1 to win the entire Champions League, making them seventh-favourites, which is absolutely wild.
Newcastle EFL Cup Odds
Having knocked out serial Carabao Cup winners Manchester City in the third round, Eddie Howe’s team were hoping for a favourable draw in round four.
Nope, instead they’re traveling to Old Trafford for a rerun of last seasons final, that they obviously lost 2-0.
Given this tough draw, Newcastle are currently fifth favouries, priced at 11/2 to win the EFL Cup although, if you think they’ll beat Manchester United, then back them now, because those odds will plummet if they do.

Latest Newcastle Stories
After a sensational showing last season, the pressure will be on Eddie Howe to deliver more of the same at Newcastle. The big question is whether the project has turbocharged too quickly and 2023/24 will be where it all falls apart?
Not if Howe can help it and with the club’s owners certainly not afraid to spend what seems like bottomless reserves of cash, it looks as if Newcastle are looking to improve their squad from a position of strength.
Strength that was highlighted by the unity that was found in last season’s squad. Not only did they manage to finish fourth in the Premier League, but they also managed to reach the final of 2023 EFL Cup.
They may have fallen short to Manchester United but there is no doubt that the Magpies have now got a taste for future success. The club has not won a major trophy since 1969, their last domestic success was back in 1955.
Whichever metric you want to use as a measure of drought, either is far too long in terms of going empty handed and with the way that Newcastle operated on the field last season, it is more a case of when rather than if they finally get their hands on silverware.
Critics will say that the only reason Newcastle secured a top four finish is because of the relative failure of others and although there may be a modicum of truth in that, you still have to complete the task in hand.
Something that Newcastle did and then some and with a return to Europe also on this season’s horizon, the sound of the Champions League anthem returning to St James’ Park is going to be keenly anticipated.
Whether competing an additional front stretches Eddie Howe’s personnel too far and they suffer domestically because of it remains to be seen. One thing that is for sure though, regardless of what happens the Magpies’ support are certainly going to enjoy the ride.
