Newcastle vs Tottenham

St. James’ Park will be packed when Newcastle United and Tottenham lock horns in the Premier League round 33. The Magpies aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Fulham, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Spurs. Joe Willock should be fit for Saturday’s clash despite limping off with injury at the weekend, while the likes of Trippier, Livramento, Almiron, Lascelles, Miley, Botman, Wilson, and Pope remain in the recovery room.

The capital club, on the other hand, defeated Nottingham Forest 3-1 to climb to the Champions League berth. Ange Postecoglou’s men are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and given the number of absentees in the home team, we are tempted to place our bets on the visiting side. The likes of Manor Solomon, Richarlison, Fraser Forster, Ryan Sessegnon, and Alfie Whiteman remain on the sidelines with injuries.

Outright Betting

Newcastle United, who have avoided defeat in their last five Premier League home games, are 7/4 outsiders on PHJOY.

Tottenham Hotspur have drawn three of their last five top-flight road matches and the same outcome here can be backed at 3/1 while the visitors are 7/5 favourites to emerge victorious.

Betting Angles

This game looks to have all the necessary ingredients for an action-packed contest so I’m going to head to the Bet Builder and bundle up Bruno Guimarães To Commit a foul, Both Teams to Receive a Card and Both Teams to Hit 3+ Corners at 4/5.

Newcastle’s Bruno Guimarães has never been one to shy away from a tackle and that is evidenced by the fact that he has racked up a colossal 14 yellow cards across all competitions this season so far.

That bone-crunching amount of bookings coincides with the fact that the Brazilian midfield warrior is averaging 1.3 fouls per-game in the Premier League this season, committing at least one in his last four outings.

Recent Meetings

  • The teams have two victories apiece in the previous four head-to-head games.
  • Tottenham celebrated a demolishing 4-1 victory in this season’s return match in December last year in North London.
  • Both outfits were on target in each of the previous eight head-to-head encounters.

Newcastle vs Tottenham Prediction

Both teams have done much better offensively than defensively so far in the season. This is why the bookmakers give you 1.33 odds for the Both Teams To Score pick after all. Instead of taking it at such criminally low price-tag, we will look towards other exciting markets.

The match winner one looks pretty interesting. We all know that Newcastle play much better in front of their fans than on the road. The Magpies had a full week of rest. They could have Kieran Trippier back in the starting lineup here. They will go into the match in high spirits.

When you add a phenomenal home record to the mix, you suddenly find great value in the home win pick at the 2.70 odds. The Magpies won 10, drew 3, and lost 3 of 16 home outings in this term of the Premier League. They are also undefeated in the last five home outings in the league.

The second pick would be Alexander Isak to score anytime at the 2.30 odds. The Swedish forward offers value every single week. He is lethal in the final third whenever he gets the nod. He is once again expected to start as Callum Wilson is still on the sidelines.

The best part about Isak is that he seems to have improved his fitness of late. Alex has played the full 90 minutes in each of his last five games (three for Newcastle and two for Sweden). He has three goals in his last three league fixtures and he takes penalties. What else do you need?
