Market: Newcastle to win the title
Odds: 5/2 @ Bet 365
Newcastle United recently announced that manager Rafael Benitez would be staying on to help lead them to promotion from the Championship next season, and given their impressive form in the tail end of the last campaign, supporters are confident of a quick return in 2016/17.
A number of players have announced they will stay at St James’ Park to try and get the club back to the Premier League as Benitez will remain in charge, and it means United will boast a very strong side in the Championship.
Newcastle will have competition, however, from the likes of Norwich City, Derby County, Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion, so they may be met with some resistance at times. Nevertheless, the North-East outfit are rightly so favourites to rule the roost in the Championship with their superior squad, and under Benitez they should deliver.
United will retain the majority of their squad for next season, and are challenging for the league crown, not just a top-two finish. Bet 365 are giving odds of 5/2 for Newcastle to win the Championship title in 2016/17 as a result.
