Newcastle vs Tottenham Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 11th August 2018
Newcastle vs Tottenham – Premier League: This Saturday morning, Newcastle hosts Tottenham at St. James Park
on a match counting towards the 1st round of the Premier League.
Newcastle finished in 10th place of the Premier League with 44 points conquered, thanks to a record of 12 victories, 8 draws and 18 losses.
In terms of goals, they counted with 39 goals scored and 47 goals conceded, presenting an average of 2.3 goals per match.
It was playing in front of their own crowd that the Magpies gotten the highest number of points. On this pre-season, they’ve played 5 preparation matches, recording 1 victory, 2 draws and 2 losses.
Tottenham finished in 3rd place of the Premier League with 77 points conquered, thanks to a record of 23 victories, 8 draws and 7 losses.
Their goal ratio counted with 74 goals scored and 36 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2,9 goals per match.
Their record at home was the most productive, but as visitors they’ve presented the 2nd best record in the league.
The Spurs have played 4 friendly matches, recording 2 victories over Roma and AC Milan, 1 draw against Barcelona and 1 loss against Girona.
Newcastle vs Tottenham – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Even without a lot of World Cup players, Tottenham made an excellent campaign on the International Champions Cup, not losing any of the 3 matches they’ve played.
For their debut in the Premier League, the Argentinian Pochettino will already have at his disposal all the players that played in the World Cup (although not all of them should start).
The trip to St. James Park won’t be easy, it never is for any team, but the Spurs have more conditions of bringing the 3 points at this time, taking into consideration that Newcastle seems to be far from what they can achieve.
Rafa Benitez’s team has only won 1 match on the pre-season, inclusively being battered by 4-0 by Braga. With the odds at Evens, I believe that the best bet here will be exploring the winners’ market in favour of the visitors.
