New relegation odds released after good results for Watford, West Ham, Norwich & Bournemouth

According to the bookies, there’s still SIX clubs more likely to be relegated than Newcastle United this season – despite our worrying run of form.

Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Burnley was a frustrating one, but it was compounded by the fact THREE of the club’s below us all earned big wins.

West Ham beat Southampton 3-1, Watford pulled off a shock 3-0 win over Liverpool and Norwich got the better of Leicester on Friday night, meaning we went into the weekend 7 clear of the drop zone and leave it just 5 points away from the bottom three.

Elsewhere, Bournemouth also earned a good point against Chelsea, but the ‘good news’ was that Brighton lost at home to Palace – the only result that helped us out over the weekend.

Here’s how the bookies have it, believing Norwich, Aston Villa and Bournemouth are the three favourites to go down:

Relegation odds:

  • Norwich – 1/10
  • Aston Villa – 4/7
  • Bournemouth – 4/5
  • West Ham – 15/8
  • Brighton – 9/4
  • Watford – 3/1
  • Newcastle – 7/1

Interestingly, these were the odds back on December 6th after our 0-2 win at Sheffield United send us up to 11th and 5 points clear of the bottom three:
