Newcastle United are basking in the glory of reaching the Champions League after they ended their season with a draw at Chelsea.

Ahead of the campaign, it was the Blues that were viewed as the more likely of the two sides to claim a place among European football’s elite after their owners put significant investment into their playing squad.

However, it was the Magpies that were celebrating after their recent goalless draw with Leicester City got them over the line and ensured the likes of Barcelona, Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain could be visiting Tyneside when the new season gets underway. But what are the chances of domestic success and what would be a historic Premier League title win for the Magpies?

NewcastleWorld looks at the latest odds with the 2022/23 Premier League season now over.

Newcomers predicted for a season of struggle

Perhaps it should not be a surprise to see the three promoted clubs priced at the longest odds, such is the difficulty in adjusting to life in the Premier League after achieving success in the Championship.

Luton Town’s dramatic penalty shoot-out win in the Saturday’s play-off final with Coventry City will see the Hatters return to the top tier for the first time in 31 years - but they will return as outsiders and are priced at 3000/1 with Bet365. Championship runners-up Sheffield United are set at 2500/1 and champions Burnley are 1500/1 along with Bournemouth. Nottingham Forest and Fulham are set at 1000/1 despite showing signs of progress during the current Premier League season.

London clubs tipped for mid-table

West Ham United (250/1), Brentford (400/1) and and Crystal Palace (500/1) are all rated in the middle of the market after producing similar finishes this season.

Everton are also rated at 500/1 after they managed to secure their Premier League status on the final day of the campaign with a narrow home win against Bournemouth and Wolves are rated at 750/1 as speculation over the future of Julen Lopetegui continues to dominate the headlines at Molineux.

No surprises in the title race

Given their successful push to retain their title this season and their bid for a historic treble, there will be few eyebrows raised over the fact Manchester City are odds-on favourite to top the table once again next season.

Pep Guardiola’s side are priced at just 4/6 to secure a sixth Premier League title in the last seven years with Bet365. Arsenal (7/1) are second favourites after they pushed City all of the way this year and Liverpool and Manchester United are both priced at 8/1, with Chelsea surprisingly set at 12/1, despite experiencing something of a disastrous campaign this year.

What about Newcastle?

There can be no doubt the Magpies have far surpassed their pre-season expectations by ending the current season in the top four and returning to the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.

Not since Sir Bobby Robson was in the home dugout and Alan Shearer, Laurent Robert and Kieron Dyer were wearing the famous black and white stripes have European football’s elite clubs visited Tyneside. Despite the impressive performances during the season and the unquestionable ambition at St James Park, the Magpies are rated as sixth favourites to win next season’s Premier League, with Eddie Howe’s men priced at a surprising 14/1 to secure a first title since 1927.
