Premier League Betting

It is a feisty, full-blooded Tyne and Wear derby betting scenario which we have up on the weekend. Sunday’s fixture from the Stadium of Light pits the two north-east rivals against one another and both desperately need to start stringing together some form to try and break out of their relegation concerns. Both start the weekend inside the bottom three with just one victory posted between them all season long. While there will be plenty of passion there may not be many goals and under 2.5 goals which has happened in four of the last five between them at the Stadium of Light.

It’s desperately bleak times up in the north east, but one of these can bring a bit of light to Sunday by putting three points on the board. It is Sunderland who have the head to head form going in their favour in Tyne and Wear derby match ups recently. The Black Cats have produced wins in each of their last five against the Magpies in all competitions and would love to make it six in a row. That would pull them level on six points with Newcastle, who start the weekend third from bottom.

There would be no better time or way for Sunderland to bank their first win of the season than to produce it against their rivals. That could really kick start their efforts under new boss Sam Allardyce, who saw his side lose 1-0 at West Brom last week. Allardyce has never lost his opening Premier League home game in charge of a club (W3 D1). Sunderland are 8/5 to pick up the win and the game settling in a draw can be backed at 23/10.

But the Black Cats have produced just the two league goals in their last five Premier League games, failing to score in four of those. So major issues going forward for the Black Cats who have conceded the joint second-highest amount of goals along with Newcastle in the league this season. Newcastle will be going into the match with a little more confidence under their belt after their 6-2 win over Norwich last weekend.

Georginio Wijnaldum scored as many goals in that game against Norwich (4) as Sunderland have in their last six Premier League games combined (4). That having been said, the six goals that the Magpies scored in the match matched the tally of their total scored from their opening eight games of the season. So there are offensive and defensive issues for both here, but Newcastle perhaps edge the attacking threat.

Newcastle are a 15/8 quote to put the win on the board. Sunderland are on a twelve match winless streak in the Premier League which Newcastle have suffered three losses and a draw on their travels this season in the Premier League, having scored just the one league goal away from St James Park this term. These are the collective faults which has both of the north east giants in the messes that they are in.

Online betting site Betfred are running their Double Delight/Hat Trick Heaven promotion for the Tyne and Wear derby. If you’re successful first goalscorer selection goes on to score a second in the match then you will be returned double odds. There will be treble odds paid out on your initial first goalscorer odds if he nets a hat trick. Other qualifying games this weekend from the Premier League are Arsenal v Everton, Man Utd v Man City and Liverpool v Southampton.

Sunderland v Newcastle Betting Preview

The stresses of being a cellar-dweller in the Premier League will come to light at the Stadium of Light in the Tyne and Wear derby on Sunday. Both sides desperately need three points. Newcastle banked their first win of the season last weekend while Sunderland are still desperately searching for their first three points of the new term. The Blacks Cats could find themselves being cut a bit further adrift if they lose at home in this derby clash.

There is a first goalscorer boost which could be picked up through online betting site Ladbrokes for the Tyne and Wear derby. Back a first player to score in the game and if your winning selection nets the opening goal in the first 25 minutes of action then Ladbrokes will double the odds on the player on stakes up to £25. This great offer applies to any domestic league or cup match, or any European match involving a British team which is live on tv.

Sunderland v Newcastle Betting Tips

The Black Cats are desperately searching for a positive for the season having failed to win a single match so far. They can look at their recent form against Newcastle and at least find a positive there because they have won their last five games on the bounce in all competitions against the Magpies. Sam Allardyce oversaw Sunderland for the first time last weekend and his side lost 1-0 at West Brom. There has been a terrible lack of goals from Sunderland who have failed to score in four of their last five Premier League matches, while at the back they have conceded six in their last three. Sunderland have posted two draws and a two defeats on home soil (alternating) but along with their form against Newcastle, Sam Allardyce has never lost his first home Premier League match in charge of a new club, winning three of four.

Sunderland’s winless form stretches back to twelve matches now in the Premier League and they have posed little attacking threat. No-one has had fewer touches inside the opposition box than Sunderland have this season. This Tyen and Wear derby doesn’t have the look of producing a lot of goals in it and you can go under 2.5 goals for a price of 4/5 with online bookmaker Ladbrokes. Sunderland really need to raise themselves for this one, losing on home soil in the derby would see them fall six points behind their rivals who may not be able to climb out of the bottom three if they win. Sunderland have produced more wins in the Premier League over Newcastle than any other side in the top flight.

The Magpies received a huge boost last weekend as they brought their shooting boots to the party in a 6-2 home win over Norwich. They were aided by a terrible performance from the Canaries, but that was a much needed win for the Magpies. They scored as many goals in that one match as they had managed across their first eight games of the season. Georginio Wijnaldum was on fire against Norwich, netting four, which was as many goals as Sunderland have managed as a whole in their last six matches. Wijnaldum is a 5/2 anytime goalscorer market option. Newcastle and Sunderland have the joint second-worst defensive records in the top flight and on the road, the Magpies have scored just one goal in a D1 L3 record away from St James Park.

Sunderland v Newcastle Betting Odds

Sunderland 8/5, Newcastle 19/10, Draw 12/5

Sunderland v Newcastle Predictions

Newcastle have yet to prove that they can travel and have been very poor on the road. Sunderland have shown that they can raise their game when it comes to facing their bitter north east rivals and the Black Cats could be value to sneak a win in a low scoring fixture.

Football Betting

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.
