Having been 11/2 about Newcastle going down next May prior to the Spaniard’s exit on Monday, Betway is now 10/3 that the next Toon boss fails to keep the club in the top flight.

The bookmaker has also shortened the Magpies’ odds of a bottom-half finish, now 4/9 from 4/7, while they can be backed at 400/1 to pull off a major shock and land a first Premier League title in 2019/20.

“Much of the Newcastle faithful will be very disappointed to see Rafa Benitez leave and we think his departure is likely to put a dent in their hopes for next season,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

“Without Benitez in the hot-seat, Newcastle are out to 13/8 from 11/10 to celebrate a top-half finish, while it’s 10/3 from 11/2 that they are sent back down to play Championship football for the first time since 2017.”
