Newcastle United can still be backed at best odds of 15/8* with Betfred to be relegated from the Premier League despite stretching their winless run to 10 games with Saturday’s goalless draw at Southampton. Rafa Benitez’s side, who finished 10th last season after a strong finish to the campaign, have taken only three points so far, all from away draws.
They have lost all five of their home games and are being kept off the foot of the table only by Huddersfield’s equally woeful start. The Terriers have also failed to win any of their first 10 matches, going down to a 3-0 defeat at Watford on Saturday.
They are the 2/5* favourites for the drop with Paddy Power, in what remains a competitive betting market thanks to so many teams beginning the season in such poor shape. Next weekend sees Newcastle host Watford before Huddersfield and 18th placed Fulham meet in Yorkshire on Monday night.
