Premier League Relegation Betting: Newcastle clear third favourites for the drop after Chelsea defeat

There's no joy for Shearer in his first match in charge at St James' Park and the Toon are looking likely candidates for the drop.

Newcastle are now odds-on to be relegated on Betfair following their 2-0 home defeat by Chelsea.

The situation at the bottom of the table became a lot clearer today after a win for Stoke at bottom-placed West Brom and a goalless draw between Hull and Portsmouth left Alan Shearer's men, Middlesbrough and the Baggies detached in the relegation zone.

Blackburn leapt clear of the strugglers with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Tottenham that rewarded in-running backers at [55.0].

West Brom are almost unbackable to exit the league at [1.01] while Boro, battered at Bolton this afternoon, trade at [1.26].

Hull are [3.2] to be playing Championship football next season while Sunderland ([5.0]), Stoke ([7.0]) and Portsmouth ([7.2]) are the only other teams trading in single figures.

Arsenal's 2-0 win over Manchester City
saw their odds for a top four finish harden to 1.18.
