Sportingbet preview: Newcastle

Our betting partners Sportingbet run us through the markets available for Saturday's clash at Newcastle.

Sportingbet preview: Newcastle

Tottenham head to Newcastle on the back of their encouraging display against league-leading Man United last weekend, but St. James’ Park could provide just as stern a test after proving a bogey ground over the years.

The scoreline may have been surprising on Sunday, but the 21/10 for a draw with the title favourites would have offered further positives if you backed the all square finish.

Coupled with Rafael’s sending off, which ensured losing Correct Score, First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer and Scorecast bets were reimbursed thanks to Red Card Refunds, you should have some ammo for this week’s Premier League coupon.

Spurs are 6/5 favourites for the three points here while hosts Newcastle are deemed 2/1 shots. This week the draw can be had at 11/5 and the Match Prices are all the more attractive thanks to the latest Sportingbet promotion.

Late Goal Heartache means that should your bet be winning after 85 minutes, you can relax in the knowledge that even if a last gasp strike changes the outcome, you’ll get a full refund up to £25 as a free bet.

You might prefer to back a bigger price in the Correct Score market, so how about 2-1 Tottenham at 8/1, a more emphatic 3-1 scoreline at twice the price (16/1) or the 2-2 draw at odds of 12/1?

In the Sportingbet Spurs Zone this week there’s the chance to win mascot duties for one young Spurs fan, signed shirts, matchday tickets and of course, that luxury Champions League trip to Milan, so make sure you enter today at

And if you listen to the Sportingbet Podcast, there’s even more chances to win! The £50 Free Bet competition is joined by Premier League chatter, horse racing tips and NFL expertise this weekend, so tune in every Friday for the listen that’s worth your while.

Good luck!
