Newcastle v QPR Betting Preview

This looks to be a pretty good chance for the revived Magpies to stretch the wings of their winning streak a little further. Alan Pardew’s men are flying high at the moment having won their last five matches in a row in all competitions. They have the form over the R’s as well to make the home side completely backable to come away with another victory.

There is also late loser insurance on Correct Score and Score Bets placed on Premier League matches with Coral.

Newcastle v QPR Betting Tips

Can Newcastle make if five Premier League wins on the bounce, or will the international break have disrupted their form? The last time that they did win five on the bounce in the English top flight was back in April 2012. They are enjoying November have won both of their matches during the month so far, and last November they booked four wins from four in the top flight. Good month for them then. After looking so shoddy at the back, three of Newcastle’s last four victories in the Premier League have come with a clean sheet. QPR have been scoring goals though, so probably instead worth not backing Newcastle to win to nil, but instead going for both teams to score in the match.

Their defence is likely to come under some pressure from QPR who are scoring pretty well at the moment. Alan Pardew’s men have scored the highest proportion of second half goals of any team in the Premier League this season (77%) and they have scored the joint-most goals from substitutes. It may make sense to look at value in the draw/Newcastle half time/full time market for a price of 4/1. Ayoze Perez has netted three league goals this season and all of them have been a winning goal in Newcastle’s last three games. That’s trend and you can back Perez is a 5/4 shot in the anytime goalscorer market and could be worth a shot as last goalscorer for 5/1. Against QPR, Newcastle have won five and lost none of their last six in the Premier League against the R’s. Their home record this season reads W2 D2 L1 and are unbeaten in their last four there.

QPR have a goalscorer in form as well, as Charlie Austin has netted five in his last six Premier League appearances, including four in the last three. QPR are still struggling for wins, but Harry Redknapp’s men have been putting in much improved performances. They took a win against Villa, played very well in a 2-1 loss at Chelsea and took a point of Manchester City at Loftus Road before the international break recently. Rangers still have won just one of their last eight (D2 L5) in the top flight and boast the worst defensive records of all sides this term. They have allowed more shots on target against them than any other team in the top flight this season (65). In their last six against Newcastle, QPR have scored the opening goal on three occasions and have failed to score in the other three.

Newcastle v QPR Betting Odds

Newcastle 8/11, Draw 13/5, QPR 15/4

Newcastle v QPR Predictions

There is enough to suggest that both teams to score is going to return some value in this one. As well as QPR are battling finally, their lack of ability to turn in victories means that they aren’t value to back to spring a surprise at St James Park. Newcastle are a confident side right now and the home side should be backed for the victory at Coral.

Football News

What a strange season it has been for Newcastle United in the English top flight. Seven games into the new Premier League season and the Magpies had failed to win and the pressure was mounting on boss Alan Pardew. For most of the season, Pardew had been red hot favourite to be the next Premier League boss out for a job, but the club stuck to their guns, so did Pardew and are finally getting the justification for doing so.

Stringing together a five match winning streak in all competitions (four Premier League wins and victory over Man City in the League Cup), the Newcastle that head into the international break is almost unrecognisable from that of the early season. All credit has to go to Pardew, who does apparently know what he is doing.

With winnable league fixtures coming up against Burnley, West Ham and QPR after the international break, then the Newcastle revival could have some more legs yet.

Having been slashed for relegation this season after failing to score in four of their first seven matches in the Premier League this term, punters are now swinging the other way as a result of their hot streak. The odds of the Magpies landing a top six finish have been slashed by the bookmakers, while they have drifted out to a long 22/1 to take the drop down to the Championship.

Newcastle can now be snapped up at a price of 25/1 with online bookmaker BoyleSports to land a top six spot, while the Irish bookmaker has gone a step further and quoted 66/1 odds that the Magpies will steal a Champions League berth. A price of 11/8 on a Newcastle top ten finish does look the most pragmatic option amid all the new Newcastle hype though.

Even boss Alan Pardew has seen the odds on him being nominated as manager of the season have drifted back in thanks to the Tyneside turnaround. Pardew is a 25/1 shot at Boylesports to be manager of the year.

But while big Premier League success looks a long way out of the picture, will their revival see them land some silverware? The Magpies haven’t won a single piece of domestic silverware since back in 1969.

They are currently a 12/1 shot to win the Capital One Cup, as they are set to take the trip to White Hart Lane in the quarter finals to face Spurs. That big away win at Man City in the previous round would have made them more alluring to punters. Newcastle are at 40/1 to win the FA Cup.

Premier League Betting

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Preview

Well the Magpies are flying pretty high right now. They didn’t look to be a side who could string three wins in a row together (in all competitions), but that is what has happened. There is a new buzz around St James’s Park and it may just be enough to get under the skin of a vulnerable looking Liverpool at the moment.

There is great late loser insurance at online bookmaker Coral for your football betting. Place yourself a correct score & scorecast bet on any Premier League match and if your bet is winning at the 85th minute mark but happens to go on and lose then you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet.

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Tips

This isn’t going to be an easy game for Liverpool at the moment. They have strung a bit of form together, going four matches. The points that they have put on the board this season haven’t come easily for them. However, they have scored more goals in the Premier League against Newcastle than they have done so against any other club. Not only that, with 23 Premier League wins over the Magpies, they haven’t won more than that any against any other club (equal with their win tally over Aston Villa). Liverpool’s defence has come under scrutiny this season again and they haven’t kept a clean sheet on the road this term. They shipped two goals at St James’s Park last season in a 2-2 draw.

At least Mario Balotelli finally made an impact on the season, albeit in the League Cup. Will his improved effort see him get some backing at even money in the anytime goalscorer market. Still plenty to do to prove himself. Expect Liverpool to come under pressure at the back and last three meetings between the two sides have gone over 2.5 goals, so go over again for this latest meeting. No other Premier League fixture has produced more goals than meetings between Liverpool and Newcastle have done. The Reds have only won three of their last six in all competitions, and having watched an understrength Newcastle win at Man City in the League Cup during the week, they’ll be nervous.

This game really has the making of being a rollercoaster ride. Things are looking brighter for Alan Pardew’s men, having stitched three games in a row together (in all competitions). With back to back league wins over Leicester and Spurs, followed by that 2-0 Capital One Cup win at the Etihad, it’s all looking rosy for them. Technically they haven’t really looked an improved side, but they are playing with a lot more spirit and energy than they were at the start of the season. Can they keep the momentum going? What would help their cause is if they could keep eleven men on the pitch against the Reds, as they have had five players sent off in their last four Premier League matches against Liverpool.

Newcastle have posted two wins and just one loss in their last four against Liverpool at St James’s Park in the Premier League. It may well be worth backing them to come out of the game unbeaten. The recent history between the two sides suggests that they may not be great value to push on and grab the victory, as they have won just one of their last seven in the league against Liverpool. Papiss Cisse, although he is without a goal in two, has scored a goal every 61 minutes in the top flight this season. He’s their best chance of returning something at 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market.

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Odds

Liverpool evens, draw 5/2, Newcastle 3/1

Newcastle v Liverpool Predictions

While Newcastle have struggled to beat Liverpool lately, they are unbeaten in four at home against the Reds. Tyneside will be buzzing with their new found form and the energy that comes with that confidence should see them alright for at least a point in the game. Well worth taking a shot at a Newcastle – Draw Double Result for around 4/5 at online bookmaker Coral.

Manchester City v Newcastle League Cup Betting Preview

Well the Citizens may be gunning harder than perhaps they would have expected to have been for a place in the quarter finals of the League Cup. After taking massive blows in their Champions League and Premier League hopes over the past week, some silverware in the form of the Capital One Cup may keep the wolves from Manuel Pellegrini’s door for a bit. But Newcastle appear to be finding their feet, so can the Magpies deliver another blow to the Citizens?

There is a big Capital One Cup coupon midweek, meaning that there is a nice chance to build a acca. Online bookmaker Paddy Power pay out a 20% win bonus on successful acca of five selections or bigger, and selections can be made from the League Cup as well as other top European competitions. Superb bonus offer and a great chance to try and pick up some extra reward. The maximum payout on the acca win bonus is £1000

Manchester City v Newcastle League Cup Betting Tips

This is still a tough fixture for Newcastle, let’s make no bones about that. The Magpies are finally showing a bit of fight, and have recorded back to back wins in the Premier League, something that they looked a long way short of doing before the international break. After a home win over Leicester, they came from behind to beat Spurs at White Hart Lane on the weekend. Newcastle have now lost just one of their last six in all competitions. But they still don’t look a great side, they managed just 33% of possession at Tottenham, and City have the ball retention to hurt Newcastle. The Magpies have won their last three away games in the League Cup, including seven of the last nine.

But the form in the head to head against Man City is all with the Citizens. Manchester City have won their last twelve matches in a row against Newcastle in all competitions. Newcastle have failed to get a win over the Citizens in their last eighteen meetings. So the Tyneside club are rightly heavy underdogs for this one, and that record stands at D2 L16 in their last 18 match ups against City. But City’s confidence will have been knocked over the last week, including their 2-1 loss at Upton Park against West Ham on the weekend. That followed them blowing a two goal lead in a Champions League match against CSKA Moscow, the game ending 2-2.

City have failed to win three of their last six in all competitions, but they took a comfortable victory against Newcastle on the opening weekend of the Premier League this season. City earned a 2-0 victory at St James’s Park, and didn’t allow a single shot on target against in the match. With Newcastle not looking a particularly prolific attacking force, the City should still be relatively comfortable in this game. The last two meetings between them at the Etihad have seen 4-0 wins record by City and Sergio Aguero is trading as 8/13 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. So probably goals in this one, and City have to bounce back sooner or later.

Manchester City v Newcastle League Cup Betting Odds

Man City 2/7, Draw 18/4, Newcastle 8/1

Manchester City v Newcastle League Cup Predictions

As well as Newcastle have done in their last two league matches, facing City on the road is a big ask for them, and they aren’t great value for the win. There’s not enough in them to suggest that they are going to cause an upset. City will be taking this a little bit more seriously after the week that they have had and it should be a home win.

Premier League Betting

Tottenham v Newcastle Betting Preview

How will punters size this one up? Two teams who have not been able to nail down any kind of winning form this season. So betting on this one is up in the air a bit. Do you read into Newcastle’s first league win of the season last weekend, or Tottenham’s home form? Tough one to call and it could be an edgy, nervy affair at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

There is brilliant acca win bonuses to be picked up at online betting site bet365. Place a threefold or bigger acca and if your bet is a winner, then the bookmaker will pay you out a win bonus on top! The size of your win bonus will be dependant on how many selections are in your winning acca. The bigger the bet, the bigger the payout bonus! New customers registering an account with online betting site ebt365 can get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus.

Tottenham v Newcastle Betting Tips

What a mixed bag we have seen from Spurs this season. Just one league win in their last six, lacking a cutting thrust up top and open at the back. They were humiliated last weekend in a 4-1 defeat against Manchester City and while they had an unexpectedly positive result in the Europa League during the week, boss Mauricio Pochettino needs to find a way to produce consistency in performances in the English top flight. To add a bit of nerves and doubt on the Lilywhites for this one, this is a fixture which they lost 1-0 last season as well.

With Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado doing nothing up front for Spurs this season, young Harry Kane, who netted a Europa League hat trick in the week, may be better value at even money in the anytime goalscorer market. They need someone up there with an eye for goal. Christian Eriksen has scored in his last two Premier League appearances and may be worth a punt too. Spurs have scored at least once in 18 of their last 19 Premier League matches against Newcastle, and only one of the last 17 between them at White Hart Lane have ended as a draw. The thing which may save them in this game, is that their defence won’t come under the kind of pressure that it did against Man City last week. They have now given away nine penalties in 2014.

Newcastle finally found their winning ways last weekend, taking a  1-0 home win over Leicester. They were a bit lucky to get away with it too, as they were under immense pressure and looked second best in the game. Still, a win is a win, but they have lost their last three visits to London, failing to score in each match. This game does have the look of being a low scoring affair, so look under 2.5 goals. Both of these are far from being a prolific side. The Magpies’ Papiss Cisse’s looks their best route to goal, even with his howler of a miss against Leicester. He has four goals this season and is a 5/2 shot in the anytime goalscorer market.

Tottenham v Newcastle Betting Odds

Spurs 3/4, Draw 11/4, Newcastle 7/2

Tottenham v Newcastle Predictions

May be worth tilting towards a Spurs half time bet. Six of their ten goals this season have been before half time, while Newcastle have scored 6 of 8 after the break. Newcastle do look to be a side very low on quality, whereas the results haven’t been going for Spurs, but they have quality through their ranks, especially in the midfield area. If they can get someone scoring, their season would turn around in a heartbeat. Back the homeside for the win, as they have been victorious in four of the last five at White Hart Lane against the Magpies.

Alan Pardev (Newcastle)

Crystal Palace v Newcastle Betting Preview

This could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back as far as Newcastle boss Alan Pardew hanging on to his job is concerned. The Magpies, yet to win a league match this season are feeling the heat as their defence has looked pretty woeful. Palace may be buoyed by a big three points at Goodison Park on the weekend. Palace are 6/4 favourites to take the win.

Online betting site Paddy Power have a great accumulator bonus running for their customers. On matches from the English and Scottish Premier Leagues, English Leagues 1 & 2, FA Cup and Capital One Cup matches, you can get a 20% win bonus on 5-fold acca’s or bigger with them. The maximum bonus payout on the offer is £1000 from Paddy Power.

Crystal Palace v Newcastle Betting Tips

This will be the first ever meeting between the two sides in the KeagueCup. Palace are unbeaten in their last four matches now, a run which started with a 3-0 win over Walsall in the previous round. Subsequent league draws against Newcastle, Burnley and a huge win at Goodison Park on the weekend has seen the Eagles hit a bit of resilient form. Neil Warnock has taken up the reins of the club well following the shock departure of Tony Pulis. These two met at the end of August in the Premier League at St James’s Park, the Eagles netting a late equaliser through Wilfried Zaha in a 3-3 draw.

The Eagles were second best in possession by a long way and they are without a win in their last nine meetings against the Magpies. That league draw in August snapped a four match winning streak for the Magpies over the Eagles. It could be an entertaining affair and so the game could well go over 2.5 goals again, because there may not be strong starting elevens out.

Newcastle have been struggling badly of course this season, having a hard time finding goals and leaking goals all over the place. They had to fight back from two goals at home against Hull on the weekend to rescue a point, probably doing just enough to keep Alan Pardew in a job. They just look very poor in the final third and if Pardew makes changes, they could get outfought here. But on the other hand, this is the type of game where redemption can be gained, and the opportunity to pick up a confidence boosting win. They need it. They need to gel together.  Newcastle have kept clean sheets in seven of their last eight games against Palace.

Crystal Palace v Newcastle Betting Odds

Crystal Palace 6/4, Newcastle 17/10, Draw 11/5

Crystal Palace v Newcastle Predictions

A tough game to call. Palace are probably the more confident of the two sides at the moment, as Newcastle are really looking overwhelmed. But the Magpies have clear form going over Palace and they may just be some good enough value to be backed for an away win in this one. Palace aren’t a high scoring side themselves, and if Newcastle do get a grip on possession again, they could sneak it.

Premier League Betting

Aston Villa v Newcastle Betting Preview

The Villains will be looking to consolidate their opening day win at Stoke with at least a point at home. The Magpies lost their opener at home against Man City, and Alan Pardew’s men find themselves rooted to the bottom of the pile after the first round of fixtures.

Aston Villa v Newcastle Betting Tips

The Villains have netted exactly one goal in six of their last seven home games in the Premier League against Newcastle. So the Villains should get on the scoresheet in this one, and with Newcastle looking woeful up front in their opener, one goal could be enough for the Villains to get something out of the match. Villa have managed to win just one of their last nine home games in the top flight, but that boost of an away win at Stoke last weekend will have done them wonders. They haven’t beaten Newcastle in any of their last six league meetings, but because of their scoring record against the Magpies, they may be a tempting shot for punters to back to snap that streak.

Newcastle have lost their last five away games in the Premier League, and looked short of quality in midfield and up front in their home defeat against Man City. They didn’t manage a single shot on target last weekend, even though debutant Remy Cabella created three goal scoring chances. Not sure where the goals are going to come from for Newcastle this season, who have won their last three against Villa. Newcastle’s last three wins over Villa in the league have been by a 2-1 scoreline which is a 9/1 option for the latest meeting. But for a side going to Villa Park as underdogs, then it says a lot about the status of Newcastle right now.

Aston Villa v Newcastle Betting Odds

Aston Villa 6/4, Newcastle 9/5, Draw 23/10

Online betting site Stan James are running a free £5 bet offer. Place a treble or accumulator with them on the over/under 2.5 goals market (on Premier League matches this weekend only) and get a free £5 bet, win or lose. New customers can get a free £10 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Aston Villa v Newcastle Predictions

No-one expected Villa to get out of Stoke with a 1-0 win and Newcastle looked so poor going forward last weekend that the Villains should be good for a point in this one. Back Villa to be winning at half time for 11/5 as four of their last five home goals have come in the first half, and shoot for the no option on Both Teams To Score for a price of even money at Stan James.

Manuel Pellegrini (Man City)

Newcastle v Manchester City Betting Preview

Well, Manchester City will have to do better than they did defensively in the Community Shield against Arsenal last weekend. They probably will be better, as more of their regular starting eleven will be out including captain Vincent Kompany. Newcastle have done some smart business over the summer transfer window, but they still look short of genuine match winners, especially compared to Manchester City.

Newcastle v Manchester City Betting Tips

These two met on the opening day of last season at the Etihad, and it was City who took a 4-0 win. Newcastle have won just one of their last five opening matches to a new season (D2 L2) and they have been handed a tough start here. They weren’t convincing at all last season, with only the on-loan Loic Remy looking likely to ever score for them. He’s gone back to parent club QPR leaving the Magpies looking a bit short up front for goals. It probably isn’t worth looking at any of the Newcastle players in the anytime goalscorer market, as they have failed to score in their last three Premier League matches with Manchester City.

The Magpies have scored in just one of the last six matches in all competitions against the Citizens. Newcastle tanked towards the end of last season, losing eleven of their last 15 games, but remarkably they managed to finish in the top half of the table. Alan Pardew always seems to be a man under pressure and while his summer signings have strengthened the squad, it still isn’t a squad which has the look of producing a lot of cut and thrust and goals. Young Frenchman Emmanuel Riviere, who scored 14 goals in 23 appearances for Monaco last season in the league, could be the bright spark of the season for them.

But they are going to get new players bedded in, while Manchester City have pretty much stood pat with their title winning squad from last season. Man City have won four and lost none of their last five opening weekend league matches, and they have kept clean sheets in four of those. City were really slow out of the blocks on the road last season, winning just two of their first eight away games. Only Liverpool and Arsenal managed to pick up more road points at the end of the season though, as the Citizens found their feet on their travels.

Even though they didn’t carry the same attacking swagger from the previous season, they still managed to score 102 goals, the second highest tally in the history of the Premier League. They scored eight unanswered goals in three matches against the Magpies last season and you would expect more of the same to come. They just have more match winners, especially in a fit Sergio Aguero, who scored 17 goals and made six assists in just 23 appearances. Aguero is around the price of even money to net at St James’ Park on Sunday, looking some good value.

Newcastle v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 8/13, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 4/1

The Citizens are trading as 12/5 second favourites to win the Premier League this season, but new customers opening an account with Paddy Power can take a price of 9/1 on Man City retaining their title. That is because of the massive enhanced odds Premier League winner promotion that the bookmaker is running at the moment. There is also a free£10 matched bet on top to enjoy as well.

Newcastle v Manchester City Predictions

Wouldn’t look any further than a Manchester City win in this one. Their record against the Magpies speaks for itself and you will see a stronger performance from City than in the Community Shield. They are stacked with match winners too and would consider value in Man City To Win To Nil at a price of 2/1 with Paddy Power.

15th August 2014 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Premier League Betting

Premier League Betting

The Premier League is back on August 16th with seven games on the way, including Manchester United v Swansea and Arsenal v Crystal Palace. Online betting site Titanbet are offering odds of 5/1 that the match over the opening weekend of the Premier League will be Newcastle v Man City.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew will no doubt be eying up a bit upset on Sunday when the reigning champions come to town. Newcastle, who struggled for goals last season, have lost the last ten matches in all competitions about Manchester City.

So the Magpies may not be backed for the win, but their defence, which looked a shambles at times last season, may be backed to give up chances to Man City and allow the Citizens to hit the ground running in their title defence. This corresponding fixture last season ended in a 2-0 win for the Citizens, with Man City winning 4-0 on home turf. There have been four goals scored in six of the last seven league match ups between these.

The second favourite option in the Highest Scoring Game is Liverpool v Southampton on Sunday also which is evaluated as an 11/2 shot at Titanbet. This may be based on all of the selling off of their best players that Southampton have done in the summer. Liverpool have yet to find a replacement for Luis Suarez and may not be as prolific as last season without him, but will still play with that same attacking swagger, and will be keen to get off to a flyer at Anfield.

There are other tempters in the market, particularly the Man Utd v Swansea and Arsenal v Crystal Palace matches at 6/1 and 13/2 respectively. Here you have big side at home against sides who could find themselves in a relegation scrap at the end of the season. Both United and Arsenal are favourites to win their games, but will the goals be racked up in the matches?

Online betting site Titanbet offer up to £50 worth of free bets to new customers registering an account with them. The bookmaker is also currently running fantastic insurance on all 4-fold bets placed across any sports, if just one leg of the wager lets you down. Customers can also get a free £5 bet for placing at least £50 worth of bets too!

Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Preview
How it has all gone wrong for Liverpool in their last two league matches. First the home blow against Chelsea and then throwing away a three goal lead against Crystal Palace. Their final game of the season at home isn’t going to be the big party occasion which it had promised to be.

Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Tips:
Who would have predicted the end of season twists that have befallen Liverpool? After having an eleven match winning streak snapped, which included what looked to be a title winning victory over Man City, it has gone wrong for the Reds. That costly slip by Steven Gerrard at home against Chelsea just about sealed their title fate. After cruising to a 3-0 lead at Selhurst Park on Monday, BRendan Rodgers was dismayed as his defence crumbled in the last 11 minutes to concede three goals to settle for a 3-3 draw. Title advantage handed fully back to Manchester City. There is a slim chance that they could still yet land the title, but they can’t control what Man City are going to do at home to West Ham on the final day of the season. Given the fact that it is Liverpool, would expect goals. There has never been a goalless draw in 39 Premier League meetings between Liverpool and Newcastle too.

The natural starting place is to look over 2.5 goals here, but that is short priced at 3/10. Pushing the boat out to over 3.5 goals is a little more tempting at a price of 8/11 with Betfair. The Reds still have a phenomenal home record for the season, W15 D1 L2, that defeat against Chelsea being the only the second time that they have failed to find the back of the net this season. Six of Liverpool’s last eight matches at Anfield in the league have seen them score three goals or more. Luis Suarez is trading as 4/7 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, with Daniel Sturridge at 8/11. Liverpool just haven’t been that tight at the back all season long and it could be worth heading towards a 4/5 shot on Both Teams To Score. The last time that Liverpool lost at home to Newcastle was back in the 1995/96 League Cup. That is a run of 18 games unbeaten at Anfield since then (in all competitions). They should have enough punch to blitz the Magpies again you would think, even though they only managed a 1-1 draw in last season’s corresponding fixture. The only way they are going to win the league is with a victory themselves and a defeat for City.

Newcastle managed to get a win on the board last week, Loic Remy netting in a 3-0 win over Cardiff at St James’ Park. That snapped a six match losing streak in the top flight for the Magpies, a run which saw them fail to score a single goal in five of those games. Yes, that is just five goals in their last seven Premier League games in total. Newcastle have really lost their way over the second half of the season and they have lost their last four away games on the bounce, W1 L5 in their last six road games. So no reason to back Newcastle to get anything out of this as their defence has looked a bit shambolic and directionless. Liverpool have brushed aside better teams. Remy is their best shot at bagging a goal, and is trading at 4/1 in he anytime goalscorer market.

It is their last hurrah for the season and would expect the Reds to deliver the goods on this one. Liverpool should open up Newcastle easily enough and wouldn’t be afraid to shoot for Liverpool 2 Goal winning margin for a price of 3/1.
