Bookies release early relegation odds after 2021/22 Premier League fixtures are announced

The first set of relegation odds have emerged today – and they’re tipping Newcastle United to stay in the Premier League by the skin of their teeth ahead of the 2021/22 season, naming us the joint FOURTH favourites to go down.

Following the release of the Premier League fixture list – which sees us take on West Ham (H), Aston Villa (A) and Southampton (H) in our first three games – some bookies are already dishing out odds on who will go down.

Grosvenor Casino believe Norwich (9/10), Watford (evens) and Brentford (11/10) are favourites for the drop, but Newcastle and Crystal Palace are next in line at 9/4, pipping Burnley (5/2) and Southampton (9/2) to be fourth most likely to go down.

Relegation odds – June 16th, 2021:

  • Norwich – 9/10
  • Watford – Evens
  • Brentford – 11/10
  • Newcastle – 9/4
  • Crystal Palace – 9/4
  • Burnley – 5/2
  • Southampton – 9/2

We spent a majority of last season in 17th position, so news of the bookies backing us to finish there this time around should hardly be a surprise to our supporters – despite the fact we ended 2020/21 in 12th.

Let’s hope we can kick on from where we left off last season, avoid big injuries, sign well this summer and look to go a few better than before – not spent 90% of the upcoming campaign constantly looking over our shoulders.
