Newcastle cashed in big on transfer deadline day, pocketing £30m as wantaway midfielder Moussa Sissoko secured an 11th hour move to Spurs.
Rafa Benitez also managed to shift Georgino Wijnaldum to Liverpool in a £25m deal earlier this summer as the Spaniard fashioned a squad he hopes are capable of returning to the Premier League at the first attempt.
Newcastle are 6/4 favourites with BetVictor to top the Championship. But for those Geordies confident the Toon can take the league by storm there are few interesting markets.
Hitting the 100-point mark is available at 10/1 while a new record points haul of 107 or more is priced at 16/1.
The top two tiers have the weekend off as England begin their World Cup qualifying campaign under Big Sam with a trip to Slovakia on Sunday.
The Three Lions are even money at BetVictor to give Allardyce a winning start as England manager with Slovakia 31/10 and the draw 9/4.
Skipper Wayne Rooney is 11/2 to score the opening goal and 85/40 to score at any time.
England are 2/7 to top their qualifying group for Russia, 5/2 to go through qualification unbeaten and 25/1 to win all 10 of their qualifiers against Slovakia, Scotland, Slovenia, Lithuania and Malta.
