Victor Chandler on the Premier League sack race
7:57pm Sunday 22nd September 2013 in Sport
Sunderland's latest 3-0 defeat at West Brom has led to Paolo Di Canio going odds on at 10/11 from 7/4 at BetVictor to be the first Premier League manager to lose/leave his post.
League One Peterborough United visit the Stadium of Light tomorrow in the Capital One Cup and are 8/13 to dispose of Posh (5/1) in 90 minutes with extra time priced at 3/1.
With Liverpool, Manchester United and Swansea to come before the Wear-Tyne derby at the end of October, one wonders if the Italian will still be at the helm ahead of the visit of Newcastle?
Sunderland were 7/1 to be relegated when we began betting on the drop at the end of the current PL season but they are now 11/10 with only Crystal Palace (1/3) considered more likely to return to the Championship than the Black Cats.
Liverpool will have a hungry Luis Suarez back in their ranks when they travel to Wearside next weekend and the Reds are odds on 13/20 to win Sunday's televised game, with the Black Cats 5s and the draw 11/4.
Alan Pardew will be desperately disappointed his Newcastle United side were unable to back up their excellent win at Villa Park with a victory at home to Hull. Credit must go to the Tigers, although a draw would have been a fair result.
The Magpies are now 16/1 to win the league without the big six, 25s to break into the top six and 7/4 to finish in the top half of the division after the Hull loss.
Loic Remy is ½ to score six or more PL goals this season, and 10/11 at BetVictor to find the back of the net eight or more times and the latter constitutes a bet in my opinion.
He has been prone to injury in the past, but if Alan Pardew can keep him on the field then his record suggests that he can score goals. The 4/1 on offer for him to be top Newcastle PL goalscorer also makes plenty of appeal.
Top Newcastle PL goalscorer: P Cisse 6/4; H Ben Arfa 7/2; L Remy 4/1; 6s bar
Pardew's side are ¾ for Wednesday's visit of Leeds United in the Capital One Cup for which they are 33/1 to lift the trophy in February, the same price as Sunderland.
Newcastle are not in Premier League action until next Monday when they travel to Goodison. The corresponding fixture finished 2-2 last season and the 18s for a similar scoreline makes plenty of appeal.
Middlesbrough fought back well from two-down to get a point against Bournemouth, but Tony Mowbray must have been disappointed when they led 3-2.
Boro travel to Championship leaders QPR at the weekend and the R's are ¾ to win with Boro 17/4 and the draw at 5/2. Boro are 20s for promotion and don't look realistic contenders at this early part of the campaign.
