Sportingbet preview: Newcastle

Our betting partners Sportingbet give us a guide to the markets available for Tuesday's clash against Newcastle.

Boxing Day proved a festive feast for Spurs fans courtesy of Sportingbet, as our pre-match tips all but paid for Christmas as we nailed the Match Result, Anytime Goalscorer and Correct Score.

Hopefully you had belief enough to back the 6/5 Tottenham win at Aston Villa, and if you went further by following our8/5 tip for Rafael Van der Vaart to return with a goal and 8/1 shout for a sixth 2-1 result between the sides in five seasons; you had a merry day indeed.

For all those punters who missed out on Correct Score, First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer and Scorecast bets, there was Red Card Refunds to save the day, as Jermain Defoe’s controversial sending off ensured your stakes were returned as a free bet.

The same offer applies to the next round of fixtures, so simply back your hunch in any of the markets listed above and automatically receive a little insurance on any Premier League game before January 29th.

Newcastle visit the Lane on the 28th and with their superb form showing little sign of abating, Spurs are 1/2 with their official betting partner to pick up the three points, while the Magpies are 5/1 long shots to snatch the victory.

Newcastle have proved a dangerous opponent this season and with two wins from their last three visits to the blue and white half of North London, perhaps the 11/4 draw wouldn’t be such a bad result, though Harry’s men must be full of confidence on the back of a nine-game unbeaten streak.

Goals will surely be expected from these two attack-minded teams, so the 4/6 for Both Teams to Score and 17/10 for Over 3.5 Goals could both be worth a punt, while the Correct Score market again offers bigger odds.

Another 2-1 win for Spurs would be worth 7/1, 3-1 pays 11/1 and 2-2 is a 16/1 shot, while the Scorecast market has the freescoring Van der Vaart to notch first in a 2-1 success at a massive 40/1!
