Newcastle betting (2020 updated)
The Magpies have been going through a rough couple of years. First, they were left with no financial backing in 2018/19, then they lost their star coach Rafael Benitez last year. Defying the odds, they pulled through with a 13th spot in the standings on both occasions. Though being number 13 seems disappointing for a club that used to dominate the table at the turn of the century, these results are nothing short of a miracle. They were the most likely team to be relegated last season in terms of Premier League betting odds, for instance.
So what can we expect from Newcastle going forward? At odds of 4.33 for relegation, things seem to be looking up for the Tyne and Wear-based club. That said, moving up to a top-half finish is even more unlikely ar odds of 6.00. Though the rumours of Saudi financial backing fell through, this is the first season in a long time in which they appear stronger than in the previous one.
Newcastle Key Players
Coach Steve Bruce outdid most expectations last year, but he’s still left picking up the pieces of a once star-studded lineup. The summer has been fairly hectic, though, and he needed to update the roster without letting any key members go. The result is some fairly interesting choices. On one hand, we have striker Callum Wilson, previously of Bournemouth. Joining him on the offence is left-winger Ryan Fraser.
On the other side of the pitch, fresh arrivals include left-back Jamal Lewis and Jeff Hendrick.
Of course, most of the standout members of the Magpies’ squad from last season are still around. Their star striker Allan Saint-Maximin is still on the left-wing, along with forward Joelinton. Goalie Martin Dubravka will hopefully perform as well as last season – though he will be out of commission for the first few weeks due to an injury.
While it might be a while before we see another edition of the Tyne-Wear derby, the matches between Newcastle United and Sunderland are indeed one of the most hotly-contested games in the country. Also called the North East derby, this is a local, inter-city rivalry between the two cities only 12 miles apart.
This particular football match is nothing more than an extension of the rivalry existing since the English Civil War when Newcastle and Sunderland found themselves at the opposing sides during the Jacobite risings.
Heading into the 2019/20 campaign, Newcastle have only one win more than their fiercest rivals. However, with Sunderland dwindling in the Football League One, it might be a while before we see these two lock horns in battle again.
Newcastle United is the byproduct of the merger between Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End from 1892. Despite their most recent decline, the Magpies are widely considered one of the biggest clubs in the country, boasting rich history and tradition.
Newcastle have never dropped below the second-tier of the English football system and boast four league titles – last of which was won in 1926/27. Newcastle have the same number of second division-trophies and no less than six FA Cup titles. As the outright winners of the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2006, Newcastle United are enjoying a respectable international reputation.
Newcastle have always played their home games at the impressive St James’ Park, which takes over 52,000 people. Interestingly, the Magpies had originally worn red shirts with white shorts. It was in 1894 that Newcastle United introduced their second kit – the black and white version the club is known for today – as their primary colours, mainly to differentiate themselves from either of the two teams Newcastle originated from. Conveniently, these colours put them on an opposite end of the spectrum to their arch-rivals.
