Patrick Vieira (France)

There was a huge move at online betting site Ladbrokes in the next Newcastle manager betting market on Saturday. Out of the blue, Manchester City reserve boss Patrick Vieira was moved in from a massive 20/1 quote to 7/2 with the bookmakers.

This was after reports that the club had lined up talks with the former Arsenal man about the managerial job on Tyneside. The reports are that talks between club and manager are likely to take place early next week.

With the interest in Sevilla boss Unai Emery apparently on the wane a bit, it seems as if the market is narrowly down rapidly, with most bookmakers putting former Derby manager Steve McClaren as 1/3 odds on favourite, however, compared to other names in the press, the former England manager hasn’t been getting a lot of links. But his departure from the Rams has fueled speculation that he will be heading to St James Park.

It is only Vieira now and McClaren who are in single figures in the Next Newcastle manager betting market at online bookmaker Bet Victor. Heading up the field of double figure candidates is 10/1 shot Michael Laudrup.

Despite some final day heroics against a limp West Ham side, Newcastle will probably be glad to see the back of interim boss John Carver. That three points on Sunday snapped a massive ten match winless streak (L9) in which the Magpies found themselves slumping closer and closer to the Championship.

Goals from Moussa Sissoko and Jonas Gutierrez saved the day for Newcastle, and the Magpies are now on the hunt for a new manager. Steve McClaren is the favourite at a price of 1/3 with online betting site Bet Victor. David Moyes and Remi Garde are 12/1 quote, with Frank de Boer and michael Laudrup at 14/1.

There seems to be a bit of a buzz about McLaren, who was sacked by Derby country after failing to get them up into the Premier League. That pretty much opens the door for the Tyneside club to go after him. Owner Mike Ashley has promised to put some much needed funds into the transfer market for whoever comes in.

William Hill are looking at the other side of the picture though, having priced up the Magpies as short as 5/1 to be relegated next season.

Newcastle v West Ham Betting Preview

Will Newcastle survive the drop? They can secure their position in the top fight with a win, otherwise, if they fail to win and Hull beat Manchester United, the Magpies will be down. With Newcastle having taken one point from their last ten games, their survival hopes may solely rest in the hands of Manchester United. West Ham go into the game having lost their last two top flight outings.

Newcastle v West Ham Betting Tips

Well, Newcastle may be sweating on the final day of the season. A draw won’t be enough if Hull manage to somehow beat Manchester United. However, you really don’t see the Magpies taking anything more than a draw out of their final game of the season. They have not won any of their last ten Premier League games now and that can’t be ignored, not with nine of those having been lost. They have won just the six home games all season and have lost four of their last five played on Tyneside. There’s no confidence in them and no confidence to back them win. They have scored in each of their last two league games though, but when you lose against the bottom side in the table, as they did against QPR last weekend, you are in a whole heap of trouble.

Newcastle v West Ham

So it is hard to find a reason to back Newcastle to take a win, even against a poor West Ham side. In the last five games between Newcastle and West Ham, there have been a total of just five goals scored. Newcastle have won only one of their last four games at St James Park against the Hammers and they lost 1-0 in London against them earlier in the season. Home and away, the Magpies have won just one of their last five against West Ham now (W1 D2 L2).

For most sides, the Hammers don’t look a tough side to beat, but for Newcastle they will. West Ham head to Tyneside on the back of two straight defeats, losing by a one goal margin against both Aston Villa and Everton. The Hammers have won only one of their last seven games in the top flight and have managed an average of just 1.06 goals per game on the road this season. They haven’t won any of their last eleven away games in the Premier League either and like the Magpies are struggling badly for any firepower in front of goal. The game has a 0-0 Correct Score punt written all over it, which is a price of 14/1 with online betting site Bet365.

Newcastle v West Ham Betting Odds

Necealtse 8/11, Draw 14/5, West Ham 15/4

Newcastle v West Ham Predictions

This is likely to head very close to being a draw. Newcastle shouldn’t have any caution about trying to push on and get the win, because what other choice do they have? West Ham are awkward and unpredictable at the best of times. Expect a pretty scrappy affair, but it could be tense on Tyneside. Shoot for a draw, which means Newcastle would need a favour from Manchester United.

Premier League Betting

There is a three-way race in the survival scrap in the Premier League On the weekend. Hull are 2/9 favourites to take the drop as they head into the weekend two points away from safety. That of course, means that they have to win their remaining fixture, which is at home at least, but they take on Manchester United. Unfortunately for Hull, Manchester United could need a win to try and steal third place from Arsenal, as long as Arsenal lose against Sunderland during the week that is. If not, then United will have nothing to play for.

So the Tigers need a huge escape act but pulling one off doesn’t seem all that likely. The Tigers haven’t beaten Manchester United in their last ten meetings. The last time that they did get one over on United on home turf, was back in the old English Division Two in 1974. The Tigers lost 3-0 against the Red Devils earlier in the season, so can they pull off a miracle? Hull are on a three match losing streak heading into the final day of the season, so they will have to throw the kitchen sink and everything else they can find at this.

If Hull do manage to pull off a win, then that leaves Newcastle in a huge predicament. The Magpies are winless in their last ten Premier League games (L9), but they earned what could be a massive point against West Brom recently, heaping the pressure on Hull, by forcing the Tigers to come away with a win on the final day, not being able to survive with a draw. Without that point, Newcastle would be in bigger danger because a draw on the final day by Hull and a defeat for the Magpies would have sent the Tyneside club down because of a horrendous goal difference compared to the Tigers.

Newcastle too have a home game as well to round off the season with, and they are 13/2 at online betting site Bet365 to take the drop. So, if Hull pull off a miracle against United, Newcastle would need to win their home game against West Ham. That’s not something which looks an easy game for them, having gone so long without having taken a top flight win, and with confidence and goal tally being so low. The Magpies lost 1-0 at the Boleyn Ground against Newcastle earlier in the season, and have won just one of the last five meetings with the Hammers.

Sunderland are still mathematically able to take the drop. In order for them to go down, it would take both Hull and Newcastle winning their games, while the Black Cats lost their remaining two. Sunderland face Arsenal in midweek before facing Chelsea on the weekend. If Sunderland concede heavily in those games, then it could only take a win by Hull and a draw by Newcastle for the Black Cats to take the drop. Sunderland hold a five goal advantage over Newcastle in the goal difference stakes and because of the unlikely scenario of realistically both Hull and Newcastle having to win, Sunderland are out at 8/1 to take the drop.

Some big betting to go down on the final day of the Premier League season. Enjoy some control over your bets with online betting site Be365’s partial cash-out feature. Now you have the ability to cash-out just a portion of an active bet while leaving the rest of it running until the final whistle of a game (or cash that out early too!).

The biggest fall out from QPR’s relegation to the Championship is likely to be the loss of Charlie Austin. It’s fair to say that the club don’t have a lot of talent floating around that is likely to be picked up by top flight clubs, but Austin is likely to be in big demand in the summer.

Online betting site Ladbrokes are betting on his next club, and they have priced up Newcastle as 6/4 favourites to capture his signature. Austin has netted 17 Premier League goals this season, and the Magpies are going to have to spend big in the summer to try and turn around their fortunes, and Austin could be a big target.

Liverpool are back at 5/1 behind Newcastle to be Charlie Austin’s next club. There have been rumours that Southampton are potentially going to go in for him as well, but the 25-year-old can still be backed at 12-1 to make the switch to St Mary’s.

Newcastle v West Brom Betting Preview

Every game looks like a mountain to get over now for Newcastle. They head to the weekend just two points above the drop zone and just three games in which to save themselves. Confidence is low, performances are low and it’s hard to see where they are going to find salvation. West Brom took a big three points at old Trafford last weekend, and look solid enough to cause the Tyneside giants even more relegation woes.

If any goals come in this, then you are going to deserve extra credit for picking the first goalscorer. At online betting site Boylesports, select the winning first goalscorer for the game, and if that player opens the scoring in the first 20 minutes of action, then Boylesports will pay you out double your original first goalscorer odds!

Newcastle v West Brom Betting Tips

It’s now or never for Newcastle. They could be sucked into the bottom three on Saturday, but a win could leave them breathing a huge sigh of relief, with enough clubs in the survival scrap to give them a bit of a buffer. So it is eight games now on the bounce that Newcastle have lost in the top flight and they have scored in just three of those eight games in the sequence. Will we see some fight from them on Saturday? They do actually have a decent record going against West Brom, and the Magpies beat them 2-0 earlier in the season at the Hawthorns.

The Magpies have won 10 and lost just three of the 17 Premier League matches against West Brom. A positive, but John Carver’s side have won just one of their eight Premier League games at St James Park under his guidance (W1 D2 L5) and lost the last four in a row. Only once before in their league history have they ever lost five home games in a row (October 1953 when they lost six on the trot). They have lost eight successive league games for only the second time in their history (10 in Aug-Oct 1977 the most). Papiss Cisse is a 7/4 quote in the Boylesports anytime goalscorer market for them, and he has scored three goals in just 199 minutes of Premier League action against West Brom.

Watch in-play for late goals, as Newcastle United have conceded the most goals in the 90th minute or later in the PL this season (7) and haven’t scored themselves at this point of games. After their mini slump of three straight defeats, West Brom have steadied the ship with a W2 D1 record in their last three. The two wins there were on the road against Crystal Palace and Manchester United, while there was a comfortable 0-0 home draw against Liverpool sandwiched in there, so on current form, you would have to suggest that they decent enough value to avoid defeat.

Victor Anichebe has scored more Barclays Premier League goals against Newcastle United than he has versus any other opponent (4) and is 5/2 in the anytime goalscorer market, which is headed up by Saido Berahino at 6/4 with online bookmaker Boylesports. The baggies have only lost two of their last eight away games in the top flight, and with their recent success, should have a decent crack at three points. The last four between these on Tyneside have gone over 2.5 goals which is an 11/10 quote for the weekend.

Newcastle v West Brom Betting Odds

Newcastle 16/4, West BRom 15/8, Draw 23/10

Newcastle v West Brom Predictions

hard not to just throw the money at West Brom, given Newcastle’s horrendous form. The magpies have both scored and conceded in each of their last three home games, and with West Brom picking up the pace again, shoot for both teams to score and look over 2.5 goals. A draw wouldn’t be a total surprise here as Newcastle just don’t look good enough to win.

What a shambles Newcastle are in. The Magpies suffered more embarrassment on the weekend as they were hammered 3-0 at Leicester to fall even closer to the drop zone in the Premier League. That was the eighth league defeat on the bounce, and with the club in such a horrendous free-fall, they are now just two points clear of the drop zone.

Heaping more pressure on the Magpies has been the revival of Hull and Leicester, and with their rivals Sunderland also winning on the weekend as well, John Carver’s men have been sucked even closer to the possibility of having to play in the Championship next season.

You could have backed Newcastle at 350/1 last month at online betting site Paddy Power to get relegated, and they were trimmed into 100/1 a week ago, but with their latest embarrassment at Leicester, where both Mike Williamson and Daryl Janmaat were sent off, the Magpies are now just 15/2 to suffer relegation.

QPR and Burnley both lost on the weekend, and look dead certs to drop, but after their vital 2-1 win at home over Southampton, Sunderland drifted a little to 8/11 to be relegated. Aston Villa also nudged themselves closer to safety with a win over Everton, leaving Hull at 11/2 to drop. The Tigers face Arsenal on Monday evening.

Leicester v Newcastle Betting Preview

With the amount of positive work that the Foxes have put in lately in their attempts to maintain their Premier League status, they will probably be backed heavily to come away with three home points against a Newcastle side who can’t buy a win at the moment. The Foxes are unbeaten in their last four at home against the Magpies too, so could be some value. Every point counts for Nigel Pearson’s men at the moment.

There is a great boost available at online betting site Boylesports. Back a First Goalscorer selection in the game and if the player does open the scoring in the game in the first 20 minutes of action, then you will be paid out double the original first goalscorer odds taken. New customers registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as welcome bonus.

Leicester v Newcastle Betting Tips

So, after stringing together four straight wins on the bounce in the Premier League, Leicester’s run came to an end when they hosted Chelsea on Wednesday night. That was completely forgivable of course though again the Champions-election. Still, that four match winning streak by Leicester has left them hovering above the drop zone by just a single point. Plenty of work still to do, but they have lost only one of their last four played at the King Power now (W2 D1 L1) and they have shown enough grit and spirit to be value for three points over Newcastle, who have shown the complete opposite. One huge factor for the Foxes is that they have scored in each of their last six Premier League matches now, something that the Magpies would be envious of.

The Foxes have good options up front in Leonardo Ulloa and Andrej Kramaric who are joint 7/5 favourites in the anytime goalscorer market. Leicester also have home form against the Magpies, unbeaten in their last five against Newcastle in all competitions on home turf. During that sequence of games, they have conceded just the two goals against Newcastle too. They have already beaten Newcastle there this season, taking a 1-0 win in the FA Cup against the Tyneside club. You can expect a low scoring affair when the two meet on Saturday, and nine of the last ten between Leicester and Newcastle have gone under 2.5 goals, an option which is a price of 4/5 with Boylesports. A repeat of a Leicester 1-0 Correct Score may have appeal at a 7/1 quote.

The end of the season can’t come quick enough for the Magpies at the moment. Their horrendous stretch of form continued last weekend with a 2-3 home defeat against Swansea. That’s seven defeats on the bounce now for them, and they have won just one of their last eleven played in the top flight. Newcastle have failed to find the back of the net in five of their last seven away games. Even with them managing to score in their last two games, which were at St James Park, they still couldn’t avoid defeat. Newcastle, having lost eight of their last eleven away games, have also struggled for any kind of returns at Leicester. Most likely that trend will be continuing on the weekend. Relegation remains a not-so-distant threat.

Leicester v Newcastle Betting Odds

Leicester 29/20, Draw 23/10, Newcastle 3/1

Leicester v Newcastle Predictions

There can be no confidence in backing the Magpies on the road at the moment. They are just in horrible shape and are likely going to be outworked and out-foxed by the home side. Leicester are just in better spirits at the moment and have much more of a spring in their step. Expect a home win and the score to go comfortably under 2.5 goals.

Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Preview

While Liverpool will be delighted with the recent demise of Manchester City, the chance of them banking a top four finish this season remains slim. They head into Monday’s home game against the misfiring Magpies seven points adrift of fourth placed City. Miss out on the three points on offer here and Liverpool will probably see the Champions League door shut firmly in their faces.

Online betting site Boylesports have superb bonuses available on the first goalscorer market. Just place a winning selection on the first goalscorer market and if that players score the opening goal in the first 20 minutes of action, then you will be paid out double your original odds! Huge boost that pay out to be and the bookmaker also runs great acca insurance for your football betting too.

Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Tips

It is nothing more than an outside chance for the Reds to squeeze their way into the top four and they would need Man City to keep falling apart to do so. They have blown their chances because of a drop in their own form, losing two crucial back to back matches against fellow top four contenders at the time. There was a home loss against Manchester United and a hammering at Arsenal. However, a home game against Newcastle should afford them the chance to get back to winning ways. Aside from a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on May 10th, Liverpool do have a really easy run in, so there are points on offer for them.

Liverpool had put together that fantastic 13 match unbeaten streak in the top flight before the defeats against Man Utd and Arsenal came. They have won four of their last five games at Anfield in the Premier League and should be value for a win on Monday night. They did have an extra midweek game, having to come through a trail at Blackburn in the FA Cup quarter final replay, it wasn’t a game in which Liverpool impressed really, and they have looked as if they have ran out of ideas a bit. This one could go over 2.5 goals as Premier League matches between Liverpool and Newcastle are the joint-third highest fixture for goals in the history of the competition. Daniel Sturridge is even money favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, but Jordan Henderson is in form having scored in four of his last five Premier League appearances and is a 3/1 quote.

Newcastle won the earlier meeting this season against Liverpool, baking a 1-0 home win over the Reds. However, you have to go back to the 1993/94 season to find the last time that they did a league double over Liverpool. Could be worth leaning towards a both teams to score bet, because Newcastle have scored at least once in each of their last 19 visits to Anfield in the Premier League. The Magpies though are slumping badly, having lost their last four league outings on the bounce. They have lost five of their last six actually, and have won just one of their last eight Premier League games (W1 D2 L5). John Carver’s men have failed to score in four of their last six Premier League games and away from Tyneside, they have lost their last three on the bounce, failing to score in any of those and shipping eight goals in total.

Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Odds

Liverpool 2/5, Draw 4/1, Newcastle 8/1

Liverpool v Newcastle Predictions

Absolutely no reason to expect anything other than a Liverpool win. Newcastle are struggling badly, but given their record at Anfield, it is worth considering both teams to score. Whatever happens, even if Liverpool ship a goal, they will probably have enough to pick up the three points in the game.

Premier League Betting

Four defeats on the bounce and a second loss this season to rivals Sunderland has raised Newcastle manager John Carver’s stock in becoming the next Premier League boss out of a job. It has been such a decline since he stepped into the void left by Alan Pardew’s departure for Crystal Palace this season, not only in terms of points amassed, but in the quality of performances.

A lot of Newcastle’s performances since the turn of the year has seen them put in shifts like they have already given up and just want to get to the summer break as quickly as possible. The lack of quality at the club and the lack of willingness by the board to throw any money at solving that problem or even in going out and getting a high profile manager to take them forward, jas seen the giant club underperform yet again.

Newcastle have won just one of their last eight games and with just the two goals scored in their last six Premier League matches, it is a miserable time on Tyneside at the moment. With tough games against Liverpool and Tottenham in their next two fixtures, it may not get any brighter any time soon either. Carver himself said that the loss at Sunderland on the weekend would define him. It should. He should be out of a job in the summer.

However, it may be a bit of misconception on Carver’s part that he was ever going to be anything more than a stopgap until the end of the season when the club would go on and push for what would likely be a foreign manager. Fortunately, Newcastle have probably done enough over the first part of the season, particularly their five match winning streak between mid October and mid November to allay any genuine concerns of relegation at the end of the day.

The Magpies were just so poor against Sunderland, a team who have struggled so badly themselves all season, that just where more points are going to come from remains a bit of a mystery. Taking points off Liverpool and Spurs could be tough, unless it works to their advantage that with neither Spurs or Liverpool having anything to play for now, it allows the Magpies to sneak in. The same can get said of their game against Swansea.

There is a comfortable enough run in over their final four matches of the season, with games against the Leicester, West Brom, QPR and West Ham to see them get a few points to finish with a bit of a flourish. But the levels of performance at the moment don’t suggest that that is going to happen, and while they are 33/1 shots to get the drop, Carver himself is the same price at online betting site Bet365 to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post.

What’s preventing him being shorter? The stresses that on Nigel Pearson, Sam Allardyce and in particular Manuel Pellegrini. All four may be out of a Premier League job come the end of the season, with no club too likely to make a change with so few games remaining this term.

Customers at online betting site bet365 can enjoy a great new betting feature for the rest of the Premier League season. Their new partial cash-out option allows punters to cash out a part of a bet while leaving the remaining of it running on the game. This is a great evolution to the usual cash-out option where you settle an entire wager early. With superb 0-0 bore draw coverage on all games and 100% acca bonuses on Europe’s top games, Bet365 come highly recommended for your football betting.
