Despite being appointed today as Newcastle’s new boss, Ladbrokes make Alan Pardew 6/1 in the betting for the Premier League’s next managerial casualty.
And the high street and internet giant go 4/7 that he is there on the first day of next season.Ladbrokes now make Newcastle 7/2 to be relegated this season and 12/1 to qualify for Europe. A bottom half finish is a deemed more likely by the “Magic Sign” at 2/7 than a top half finish (5/2).
The former Southampton and West Ham boss is 8/11 to keep his new club up while West Ham go down and he is 8/1 to sign a current Hammers player in the January transfer window.
It’s 11/4 he registers his first win on his home debut against Liverpool, and 16/1 his first win comes away at Tottenham. 9/2 is the price about him not winning any of his first 6 matches.
Ladbrokes‘ Alex Donohue told betrescue.com’s football desk: “Despite Pardew’s appointment receiving mixed reaction on Tyneside we expect him to still be at the helm for the start of next season.”
