There were two high profile Premier League managerial departures on the weekend as Liverpool decided that they had given Brendan Rodgers more than enough time and resources before sacking him, while Dick Advocaat decided to walk away from the mess that Sunderland are in near the foot of the table. With the sudden burst of managerial casualties, will more clubs or managers themselves follow suit and head out of their post?

It would be good timing with the international break coming up, giving clubs a bit of time to find a new boss before Premier League action returns.

Sunderland’s position in the Premier League is only better than one clubs’ and that is Newcastle. Their bitter rivals are at the foot of the table and like the Black Cats, winless so far in the top flight this season, having picked up three points. The Magpies, who have struggled badly to hit the back of the net this season, are bottom because of a worse goal difference compared to Sunderland. Newcastle boss Steve MccLaren is now 5/4 favourites with Ladbrokes in the Next Premier League manager to go market.

Ladbrokes put out a poll asking punters who the next Premier League boss to go will be and Mclaren came back as resounding favourite taking 42% of the votes. Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho is 5/2 second favourite in the Ladbrokes market as he saw his side’s woes continue on the weekend with a 3-1 home defeat against Southampton. Mourinho received the full backing of the club though on Monday, despite all of their issues.

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood is the only other boss in single figures in the market coming in at a 6/1 quote, while Watford’s Quique Sanchez-Flores is an 18/1 poke with a 25/1 bar for the rest.

West Ham v Newcastle Betting Preview

Will the shot-shy Newcastle be able to mount an assault on Upton Park on Monday night? The Magpies have struggled out of the starting blocks for the season while the Hammers have picked up big wins on the road at Arsenal and Liverpool. But in contrast their home form has been terrible, so who will come out on top in the contest?

Just in case the goals don’t come in the match then there is 0-0 bore draw insurance to snap up at online betting site Bet365. If the game ends goalless then you will get lost stake refunds on losing pre-match correct score, scorecast and half time/full-time markets.

West Ham v Newcastle Betting Tips

Right from the off the draw option in the match outright will probably have a lot of appeal for punters. The Hammers haven’t won at home this season in the top flight and they have won just two of their last nine at home against the Magpies in the Premier League (L4). Their two home games have been thrillers, though, losing 2-1 against Leicester And then 4-3 against Bournemouth. So both 1-goal margin defeats and such a stark contrast to the brilliant 2-0 win at Arsenal and the 3-0 win at Liverpool which they have earned on the road. West Ham have won just one of their last five against the Magpies in the Premier League (D2 L2) but at least they have been scoring goals, having netted in each of their four games so far.

They have scored three goals in both of their last two matches and Newcastle can’t match that kind of scoring form at all. It’s nine goals in total for West Ham against the two managed by the Magpies this season. Ten goals in total have been scored in the two home matches played by West Ham this season and you can go over 2.5 goals for West Ham v Newcastle betting at a 5/6 quote with Bet365. Diafra Sakho is 11/8 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market and the only real blight on West Ham’s season is their disciplinary record. Mark Noble saw red last week and that was their sixth red card in 10 games (all competitions) this season and one each in their last three Premier League games.

So it has been just the two goals from Newcastle this season and both of those game in their opening 2-2 draw against Southampton. So three blanks on the row and they are looking for their first win of the season. It’s fair to say that they put in decent defensive shifts in a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford against Man Utd and in 1-0 home loss against Arsenal, so maybe that can get them a point in the bag at Upton Park. Newcastle are without a win in their last nine away games in the Premier League, having taken just the two points from that sequence of matches. Hard to see a lot of appeal in them. Papiss Cisse is a 9/4 anytime goalscorer quote for them.

West Ham v Newcastle Betting Odds

West Ham 6/5, Draw 5/2, Newcastle 5/2

West Ham v Newcastle Predictions

Hard to see Newcastle having the firepower to actually win a game at the moment and you never know what you are going to get from the Hammers. West Ham don’t have good form against Newcastle so the best option here is probably going to be settling for a draw.

Newcastle v Arsenal Betting Preview

This is the Saturday lunch time kick off in the Premier League. It should be a pretty interesting one too with both really in need of a win. Arsenal have earned themselves four points so far from their opening match, so it’s not been a great start from the Gunners. But Newcastle haven’t discovered their winning touch yet so will they be able to avoid defeat at St James Park?

Newcastle v Arsenal Betting Tips

Given the poor form that Newcastle have going against Arsenal in the top flight, it is going to be hard for them to put a win on the board. The Magpies have not managed to take a win in any of their last eight home games against Arsenal in the Premier League (D4 L4) so not a great record and overall they have won just two of their last 11 Premier League home matches that they have played in 2015 (W2 D4 L5). Pretty terrible all around. They took a 2-2 draw against Southampton on the opening day of the season in their only home fixture of this season.

Newcastle have lost their last seven in row in the top flight against the Gunners and have only managed to win three of the last 28 in the division against the London outfit. The three wins that Newcastle have taken all coincided with Arsenal having a player sent off in the match. The really hasn’t been all that much to offer from Newcastle as an attacking force and Papiss Cisse goes in as a 3/1 anytime goalscorer, with Georginio Wijnaldum at 4/1. Boss Steve McClaren has lost nine of ten previous contests against Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners have been goal shy this season and despite having the joint-most shots this term in the top flight, they have only managed the joint-lowest amount of goals (2). The Gunners have actually now failed to score in five of their last nine games in the Premier League. Olivier Giroud though has a great scoring record going against the Magpies in the top flight. The Frenchman has returned eight goals from just six Premier League appearances against Newcastle and five of them have been from headers. Giroud is any even money anytime goalscorer bet. Arsenal have earned 19 points from the last 21 available on the road.

Newcastle v Arsenal Betting Odds

Arsenal 4/7, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 5/1

Newcastle v Arsenal Predictions

The only triumph Arsenal have posted so far was on the road and their overall form away from the Emirates has been good. With that and their record against Newcastle it should give them the edge to take the win. It’s like to go under 2.4 goals though the way things have gone for Arsenal this season.

William Hill

If you haven’t heard about William Hill’s superb Super Sub feature this season, then now would be the time to find out about it. If you back a player to score in a match but they get hauled off before the end, usually that would mean the end of your chances of you winning on them. However, with William Hill’s Super Sub feature, if your player get substituted in a game, then your bet on them rolls onto the player who replaces him, at the original price.

This happened recently in United’s UEFA Champions League Play Off game against Bruges. Rooney was substituted for Marouane Fellaini and then Fellaini went on to score in the match and therefore any bets on Rooney were paid out!

Great feature and Wayne Rooney is the centre of William Hill’s weekend enhanced odds promotion. He is even money to score against Newcastle on Saturday lunchtime  but punters at William Hill can get double the odds on Rooney scoring if they enter the William Hill £50 million Prem Predictor first.

The William Hill £50 million Prem Predictor is well worth a shot and it costs just £2 per entry (and you can have up to 250 of them). For each entry that you play you predict how the final Premier League standings will look this season in an attempt to land that huge prize money on offer.

The William Hill £50 million Prem Predictor closes its door for entries at 3 pm on Saturday, August 22nd. So very little time left to take part, so get in quickly while you can and double up the offer with the double enhanced odds on Wayne Rooney scoring against Newcastle.

Manchester United v Newcastle Betting Preview

Manchester United are going to have to show a lot more from an attacking perspective if they want to get themselves in the title race. Two 1-0 wins over Spurs and Aston Villa is what they have to show for their games so far, and one of those goals was an own goal from Tottenham. They haven’t gotten things going yet, but at least they have won, something which Newcastle have yet to manage this season.

Shortly after this one finishes, the curtain will come down on the entry period for the William Hill £50 Million Prem Predictor contest. Entries have to be in by 3 pm on Saturday, August 22nd in the great promotion where you can land yourself a life changing sum of money if you can predict the finals standings of this season’s Premier League. It costs just a £2 stake to enter and you can enter up to 250 times. Open an account with William Hill and earn a free £20 bet when you bet £10 as well!

Manchester United v Newcastle Betting Tips

It doesn’t seem  particularly pertinent to be complaining about a side who has won their opening two matches of the season. But frankly Manchester United have looked poor. They have offered so little going forward, managing just one shot on target in their 1-0 win over Spurs (needing an own goal from the Lilywhites) on the opening day of the season and then stumbled past Aston Villa by the same scoreline, lone striker Wayne Rooney having just one touch inside the opposition box all game. Something’s not right with the balance of tactics there, that’s for sure and there is no support coming from midfield and Rooney is better off in the number ten role. But Rooney stays up top it would seem and he is a 5/6 anytime goalscorer quote.

Rooney does have a good record against Newcastle, having scored 12 goals and assisted even more in 20 Premier League appearances against the Magpies. United have a pretty decent current record running against Newcastle as well. They have suffered just the one defeat in the last seven against the Magpies and across those seven matches, the Red Devils have netted seventeen goals against the Tyneside club. United have won 15 of their last 19 Premier League matches at Old Trafford as well and stretching back their record, they have lost just two of their last 25 top flight matches against the Magpies.

The Magpies actually came out of the blocks with a lot of positivity under Steve McClaren and earned a 2-2 home draw against Southampton. But then all of that was quickly washed away as they lost 2-0 at Swansea on the weekend with Magpies defender Daryl Janmaat seeing red for persistent fouling. Old Trafford is not a place which they like travelling too as they have managed to take just the one victory from their 21 previous visits there in the Premier League (D7 L13). The Magpies have looked a bit light up front against, with Papiss Cisse a 3/1 anytime goalscorer for this one, and they have scored just two goals in their last four Premier League games against United. Newcastle have lost their last seven Premier League away games.

Manchester United v Newcastle Betting Odds

Manchester United 1/3, Draw 4/1, Newcastle 8/1

Manchester United v Newcastle Predictions

Nothing too much seems to have changed for Newcastle and they will probably struggle to get into the match at Old Trafford. That is even with Manchester United looking a bit toothless themselves. The Red Devils do have more to offer though and have a good record to bank against the Magpies and are at least winning matches. Home win, low scoring game.

Sunderland continued their early season slump on the weekend as they were hammered 3-1 by Norwich at the Stadium of Light. After opening with a 4-2 defeat against Leicester, Dick Advocaat may be regretting sticking around at the club. Again their defensive looked abysmal as they were brushed aside. That’s two poor defeats and they have games against Swansea and Aston Villa to come in August to try and turn around their bad start.

Sunderland are now 7/10 to take the drop in Premier League relegation betting and Advocaat has been left as the 13/8 favourite to be the next Premier League manager out of a job. He is 7/2 to leave the club this month at online betting site William Hill.

Norwich’s win saw them eased out to evens from 11/8 to the drop and Watford went on the drift a little to 11/10 from 10/11 after their second successive draw to the new season in the top flight. The Hornets took a home draw against West Brom after their big 2-2 draw at Everton on the opening weekend of the season.

Leicester have improved to a 3/1 quote in Premier League relegation after making it two wins from after winning at West Ham, while going in the opposite direction was Newcastle who were beaten 2-0 at Swansea. The Magpies moved into a 9/2 quote after their home loss. Bournemouth, who face Liverpool on Monday night are trading at 6/5, the same quote Norwich.

Premier League Relegation Odds

Sunderland 4/6, Watford even money, Norwich 6/5, Bournemouth 6/5, West Brom 10/3, Aston Villa 7/2, Newcastle 9/2

Newcastle v Southampton Best Bets & Tips 

The Magpies enter a new era with fans hoping that Steve McClaren can give them a much needed boost after what was a horrible season last term. That hasn’t stopped them trading as 2/1 underdogs for their opening fixture of the season which comes from St James’ Park. Southampton are running at 7/5 with the draw at 9/4 with William Hill.

Recent Head to Head

The Saints were in full ascendancy last season in the two top flight fixtures. They ran out 2-1 and 4-0 winners over the Magpies and that extended their unbeaten streak over the north east club to four matches now. With them looking a more settled side than the Magpies, you can see where the value is.

Both Teams To Score

The preference is going to be a yes option on Both Teams To Score here which is trading at a price of 4/5 with William Hill. Two of the last four meetings have seen just the one team score in the game but those were games at St Mary’s, where Newcastle have failed to score in their last three visits. However, both teams have scored in each of the last four Premier League Newcastle v Southampton fixtures on Tyneside

Anytime Goalscorer

Graziano Pelle is the 9/5 top option in the anytime goalscorer market and he scored a fantastic goal in their Europa League first leg win over Vitesse. Jay Rodriguez is a 2/1 quote in the market with Juanmi and Sadio Mane around the 5/2 mark. Their attacking power clearly outweighs that which Newcastle can actually provide.

Over 2.5 Goals

Again you are going to have to be guided by the results between these on Tyneside and not overall. Three of the last four between them in the north east have gone over 2.5 goals, including last season’s offering. So probably worth nudging the game to go over 2.5 goals for a price of even money, even though at first glance it may look as if it won’t.

Match Outright Tip

Newcastle going as underdogs on home turf says it all. Will little much done to improve the Magpies squad over the summer, Southampton are good enough to roll in and take the three points.

William Hill are running a massive £50 million prediction prize competition. Go and register with them and with a just a £2 stake you can gain an entry into the competition, where you predict the final positions of all Premier League teams at the end of the season. Closest to the actual standing wins all! Check out their site for further details of this brilliant prediction competition.

Newcastle v Southampton Betting Preview

Southampton have been ringing in the changes in the summer transfer market. Out has gone influential midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin to Manchester United and defender Nathaniel Clyne has shipped out to Liverpool. However, the Saints haven’t been sitting around bringing in defenders Cedric Soares and Cuco Martina and Spain forward Juanmi from Malaga. Perhaps the smartest bit of business was getting the experienced keeper Maarten Stekelenburg because the Saints lost heavy ground last season because of an injury to Fraser Forster.

Failure to win any of their last seven away games of the season (losing six) really saw their challenge for a top-four finish fall away. Still, they are 11/8 favourites at Bet365 for the opening day of the season to beat Newcastle. New faces there may be, but the same quality style of Ronald Koeman’s men will be there. They are also unbeaten in their last four Premier League matches against Newcastle, winning three. Two of those victories have been by a 4-0 scoreline too.

Steve McClaren has the job of pulling the Magpies out of the mire that they found themselves in last season. They only secured their Premier League status on the final day of the season as they slumped horrifically under John Carver. Still there needs to be some big money spent by McClaren to improve the squad, but so far only midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has come in. Their last three games with the Saints have gone over 2.5 goals, so shoot above the goal line for a price of even money. Newcastle lost four and won just one of their final six home games last season and are 2/1 underdogs on the opening day of the season. They’ll be hoping for a more positive start than last season where they failed to win any of their opening seven games of the season, which included a 4-0 drubbing at St Mary’s.

There are some brilliant features to enjoy at online betting site Bet365 for your football betting. As well as showing live streams, enjoy offers such as 0-0 bore draw insurance, 100% acca win bonuses, each way first goalscorer markets and their superb partial cash out option which gives you full control of an active bet.

Newcastle v Southampton Predictions

Even with summer changes, hard to see Southampton losing this one and they may be value to sneak a narrow win. They have form against the Magpies but back both teams to score and the game to go over 2.5 goals.

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.


30th May 2015 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Football News

Premier League Betting

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.
