Bookies Still Include Newcastle

Last updated : 03 April 2019 By Footy Mad - Editor

Two gone, one to go - and Newcastle United have everything in their own hands in the Premier League's battle for survival.

We've known that Huddersfield Town have been on their way back to the EFL for a while and it was no surprise to see Fulham going with them after being relegated with five games to spare.

So it all boils down to that last place now with Cardiff City the ones feeling the heat as we head into the run-in.

Realistically the relegation scrap is now between the Bluebirds, Burnley and Southampton, but the bookies have not completely ruled Newcastle out of it just yet despite a healthy seven-point cushion between themselves and the Welsh side.

For that to happen, Cardiff would require one of the greatest escapes the top-flight has ever seen in recent years, but in truth, one more victory should do it for Rafa Benitez's side.

But they will be confident about securing Premier League status with home games against Crystal Palace and Southampton plus an away game on the last day at relegated Fulham.

Most of the bookies are quoting Cardiff at 1/7 to go down while Burnley are now 6/1 and with a clutch of companies and Brighton have odds as long as 20/1 with Bet Victor.

Southampton also aren't ruled out but are 50/1 with the likes of William Hill and Sky Bet.
