Newcastle United Betting Odds & Free Bets

The start of a new Premier League season is usually an exciting time for fans up and down the country. You can forgive Newcastle fans for not getting swept up in it all though.

The news that Rafael Benitez was leaving St James’ Park was bad enough but his replacement, Steve Bruce, has been met with a mixture of disappointment and bewilderment.

Bruce has at least been able to spend big on a new striker but the Newcastle fans are pessimistic. A poor run of defeats will quickly see the atmosphere turn sour on Tyneside and see those pre-season worries turn into a reality.

Newcastle Premier League Betting Odds

It’s been a very long time since Newcastle were involved in the action towards the top of the Premier League table. There was a very strong feeling that it was only the brilliance of Benitez as a manager that kept them out of trouble towards the bottom of the table during his time in charge and punters will find the 21/10 you can get on Newcastle being relegated much more tempting than the 1000/1 that 888Sport are quoting on them winning the Premier League.


Newcastle Outright Betting Odds

In their pomp, Newcastle were the sort of team that would regularly be tipped to win one of the domestic cup competitions. FA Cup or League Cup glory looks a long way beyond this current team’s capabilities unfortunately.

Newcastle Tips and Predictions

This really could be a very tough season for Newcastle. As a boyhood Newcastle fan, Steve Bruce will do everything in his power to make sure they confound the rather negative pre-season expectations of them. Whether he and his squad have what it takes to have a successful campaign remains the be seen.

Indeed, it’s not clear what would constitute success. The Toon Army obviously want more from their team than just avoiding the drop but that appears the limit of Mike Ashley’s ambition for the club. The relegation battle will be fierce and we think Newcastle may just slip out of the Premier League at 21/10.
