Newcastle United Boss Steve Bruce Becomes Clear Favourite To Be Sacked Next Season

Newcastle United Boss Steve Bruce Becomes Clear Favourite To Be Sacked Next Season

New Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has emerged as the odds-on favourite to be sacked only a few hours after his appointment, according to bookmakers.

The Magpies announced on Wednesday that Bruce, 58, would succeed Rafa Benitez at the club.

But bookies aren't feeling too confident about the ex-Sunderland manager's future at St James' Park.

Bruce is currently sitting on 5/2 odds and is ahead of Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær, who is second with 4/1 odds.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson and West Ham United head coach Manuel Pellegrini are 10/1 to receive the sack first.

Bookies have revealed that punters have flocked to place bets on Newcastle to be relegated from the Premier League.

According to Oddschecker, odds have plummeted from 5/1 to 11/4 on Bruce's side to head to the Championship for the 2020-21 season.

And the Magpies are now the sixth favourites to be in the drop zone at the end of the season.

Aston Villa are 9/4, Sheffield United are 10/13 and Norwich City are 1/1, while Brighton and Burnley are both at 2/1.

Oddschecker has also revealed that over half of the bets placed on Newcastle to be relegated have come in the last 24 hours.

"As underwhelming managerial appointments go, Newcastle's acquisition of Steve Bruce is right up there," says Oddschecker spokesman Callum Wilson.

"Over half of all bets for Premier League relegation have been placed on the Magpies in the last seven days, and the former Sunderland boss will have his work cut out winning over the Toon fans -- who are still reeling from Rafa Benitez's untimely demise."

Benitez, 59, was appointed the manager of Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang after his contract with Newcastle expired.
