Mikel Arteta (Arsenal)

Newcastle v Arsenal Betting Preview

Arsenal look in good enough shape to be able to pick up the three points at St James’ Park on the weekend. The only slight hesitation may be about the work that they put in against Monaco during the week in the Champions League. But currently being on a five match winning streak in all competitions, they should have enough to see off the floundering Magpies.

There is great coverage on all Premier League matches at online betting site Unibet. All losing Correct Score, Half Time/Full Time, First Goalscorer and Last Goalscorer bets will be refunded as a free bet if there is a goal scored after the 90th minute of the game in question. The maximum free bet refund through the Unibet insurance is £75.

Newcastle v Arsenal Betting Tips

Hard to find too many positives about Newcastle at the moment. They have put up just the one victory in their last six Premier League outings. They are having major problems going forward at the moment and have failed to score in three of their last four played in the top flight. On top of that, they have failed to score in their last three home games against Arsenal in the Premier League as well. Their home form is poor as well, having won just one of their last five league outings at St James Park, just two in their last seven on Tyneside. Their overall home record this season reads W6 D4 L4 and they just look uninspired and as if they can’t wait to see the season out.

Arsenal have a top four finish in the league to play for, so that should give them the extra edge, not as if they needed on. They have won their last five games in a row now and have posted victories in ten of their last twelve league matches (L2). That is impressive form and they are clear front runners for the win. A win at St James’ Park on the weekend will it make it three wins on the bounce away from home in the Premier League, after having beaten QPR and Crystal Palace by a 2-1 scoreline. In Arsenal’s last six Premier League away matches, the winning side has netted exactly two goals. An Arsenal 2-1 Correct Score is trading at 7/1, the same price as them winning 2-0 with online bookmaker Unibet.

Arsene Wenger’s men are unbeaten in their last eight against Newcastle in the Premier League, having won the last six in a row against them. Olivier Giroud is a man in form and while he has scored six and assisted three in his last eight Premier League matches, he also has scoring form against Newcastle. Giroud has scored six in five previous Premier League appearances against the Magpies. Giroud is up and running at even money in the anytime goalscorer market.

Newcastle v Arsenal Betting Odds

Arsenal 4/6, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 5/1

Newcastle v Arsenal Predictions

The Gunners may be a little tired after their midweek Champions League excursions. That having been said, they should still have more than enough class and creativity in their ranks to see off what looks like a really lacklustre Newcastle side. Would expect the three points to be heading back to North London.

Newcastle v Manchester United Betting Preview

United’s away performances haven’t been great at all this season but they are still going as favourites for their trip to St James Park on Wednesday night. Newcastle are still too unreliable for a lot of punters, but will they be able to take advantage of the obvious weaknesses that Louis van Gaal’s men have shown on the road this season?

Betfair are running a pick your own refund trigger offer for Newcastle v Manchester United betting. Get a free bet refund on the correct score, anytime correct score, first/last/anytime goalscorer markets if your trigger happens. The options are Man Utd to win and both teams to score, Wayne Rooney scores first, Both teams score in the first half, Ayoze scores anytime or Newcastle keeps a clean sheet.

Newcastle v Manchester United Betting Tips

With a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa on the weekend, Newcastle recorded just their second win in their last eight matches. That was an important three points because they have a really tough run of fixtures coming up and John Carver is going to be doing a lot of sweating about holding on to the managerial position. At home in the Premier League this season, Newcastle have a record of W2 D2 L2 so a bit unpredictable to say the least. Interestingly, none of their last twelve home games has seen more than a one goal winning margin for the victors in a game at St James Park. It suggests that this is going to be a tight game, because the Red Devils have been terrible on the road.

The Magpies have fired blanks in three of their last four home league meetings with Man Utd, though they did win the other 3-0. The Tyneside outfit have had their issues in dealing with Manchester United in the top flight, because they have only managed to beat the Red Devils in two of the last 24 Premier League matches against them (W2 D5 L17).  Newcastle have scored the highest percentage of second half goals in the Premier League this season (69%), so it could be worth investing in a draw/Newcastle half time/full time bet maybe. Papiss Cisse is running at a 2/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market, and he has the best minutes per goal rate in the Premier League this season (min. 4 goals); one every 84 minutes.

It is no secret that Manchester United have rarely put in a good performance this season. But even playing badly they seem to find a way to win, even with their flimsy looking midfield. Most of their winning form though has come at Old Trafford and they have looked very shaky on the road. They have only lost two of their last seventeen league matches, they have won just one of their last six on the road (W1 D4 L1). They suffered the defeat in their last away game, going down 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium against Swansea, a defeat which snapped a seven match undefeated sequence on the road.

United have put up a W3 D7 L3 record on the road this season. Wayne Rooney is a quote of 7/4 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market at Betfair, and he has netted 12 Premier League goals against the Magpies; a joint-high against any opponent along with Aston Villa. He netted both goals in United’s 2-0 home win over Sunderland on the weekend. Rooney incidentally became the first player in Premier League history to score 10+ goals in 11 consecutive seasons. Hard to see the game going over 2.5 goals, because after the weekend, this is likely to be tight, with neither doing much to impress.

Newcastle v Manchester United Betting Odds

Manchester United even money, draw 5/2, Newcastle 3/1

Newcastle v Manchester United Predictions

These two are as unconvincing as each other. That should actually give Newcastle a sniff of a point in this one, because United have played some real stinkers on the road this season, and apart from Wayne Rooney, don’t have anyone playing with any conviction. Roll for a low scoring game, and a winner to come by a one goal margin.

The Skybet Price Boost for this weekend again embraces an attractive looking enhanced odds treble on Saturday’s Premier League action. The popular promotion sees customers able to take advantage of a price boost from 4/1 up to 6/1 on Manchester United, Newcastle and Stoke all landing victories!

All three games are 3pm kick offs in the Barclays Premier League. Manchester United will be looking to extend their great home form this season, and put last weekend’s defeat at Swansea behind them, with an expected victory over Sunderland at Old Trafford.

Newcastle will look to bank a home three points as well as they take on the struggling Aston Villa at St James’ Park, while the treble is rounded out by Stoke, who will be expected to take down Hull with the Tigers having lost six of their last nine away games.

The Skybet enhanced odds offer is open to all customers and new customers who want to join in on the action can enjoy a free £20 bet just for placing their first £5 single wager on the new account.

Online bookmaker Coral are really pushing the boat out this weekend with a tremendous offer which can only be qualified for by clicking through from our special link. They are rolling out a big Premier League free bet offer, where you can pick up three free bets for Sunday’s action!

You will need to register with Coral first and once that is done, just get yourself a £10 maximum bet on the Man City v Newcastle Premier League game on Saturday. The qualifying bet can be on any market for the game, a game which City will need to win.

City head into the weekend seven points behind leaders Chelsea after having seen their form fall away, taking just one win in their last four home matches. However, they snapped a winless streak when they thumped Stoke last time out and with the boost of having Yaya Toure return (they had won just one of seven matches this season without him) then they will be hoping to get a win on the board to at least keep up the pressure on Jose Mourinho’s men.

In return for registering and placing the qualifying bet, you will get a £10 free for each of the three Sunday Premier League games from online bookmaker Coral.

So register, then place your first real money bet as a win single of a maximum of £10 on any market on the Man City v Newcastle match before 17:30 GMT, Saturday, February 21st.

Immediately, you will then get three free £10 bets back for each of the following Premier League games on Sunday, February 22nd: Spurs v West Ham, Everton v Leicester and Southampton v Liverpool. The free bets have to be used in full and will expire at the end of the each selected match.

Manchester City

Manchester City v Newcastle Betting Preview

With title rivals Chelsea having an easy-looking home fixture against Burnley on the weekend, City need to gun hard for three home points themselves to keep them in the title race. They certainly can’t afford a repeat of their loss at the Etihad against the Magpies in the Capital One Cup back in October.

Online bookmaker Boylesports have a fantastic first goalscorer promotion running where you can double your odds on the market. If your first goalscorer selection in the game nets the opener inside the first twenty minutes of kick off, then you will be paid out at double your original odds by Boylesports, who also offer up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Manchester City v Newcastle Betting Tips

City really need to start stepping things up if they are going to dig away at Chelsea’s seven point lead over them. All the Citizens can do is keep going and with a 4-1 win away at Stoke last time out, they breathed a sigh of relief as that snapped a five match winless streak in the Premier League that they had put up, the reason why their title challenge has fallen away. For such a strong home side, City have only one won of their last four home matches at the Etihad (W1 D2 L1) and they could only muster up a 1-1 draw there against Hull in their last home fixture. Incidentally, three of City’s last five results in the top flight have ended in a 1-1 draw which is a 9/1 option in the correct score market.

City do have the firepower in their ranks of course and Sergio Aguero is 11/4 favourite in the First Goalscorer market, followed by Wilfried Bony at 3/1. Aguero has scored in four of his six league appearances against Newcastle. City really will be welcoming Yaya Toure back after his Africa Cup of Nations duties, as they have won just one of seven league matches without him this season. Toure has a good scoring record against Newcastle as well, netting five in his last six Premier League appearances against the Magpies.

City have scored a league high 31 goals in the second half of matches this season, while Newcastle have the individual high of 71% of their goals coming in the second half of matches. Could be a tempter to go for a draw/Man City half time/full time wager therefore. Newcastle aren’t performing at the level to beat City at the moment, with the Citizens unbeaten in their last 16 league matches against Newcastle, the Magpies won’t be backed heavily to come away with three points.

The Magpies are struggling to pick up wins as well at the moment, having taken just one in their last seven league outings (W1 D3 L2. They have drawn their last two, and another possible hint towards a 1-1 correct score is that their last two league matches have finished by that scoreline. The Magpies have been poor on the road lately, losing four and winning one of their last seven away from home. They haven’t scored in any of their last four games against City either in the top flight. A positive for them though is that Papiss Cisse has the best minutes per goal rate of any player in the Premier League and is a 3/1 anytime goalscorer option.

Manchester City v Newcastle Betting Odds

Manchester City 2/7, Draw 9/2, Newcastle 17/2

Manchester City v Newcastle Predictions

It should be a City home win and worth pushing them to win to nil as well, because Newcastle aren’t clicking as an offensive unit at the moment. City really need to find that extra gear again and with the return of Toure and their win over Stoke last week, and having beaten Newcastle 4-0 in their last two league home games against them, City should take it.

Newcastle (12/5) haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last eight against Southampton in the Premier League, but they are unbeaten in their last 10 top flight matches against the Saints.

Mourinho (Chelsea)

Chelsea v Newcastle Betting Preview

Revenge may well be on the menu for Jose Mourinho in this one. Newcastle were the first team to prove this season that Chelsea are indeed vulnerable, by beating the Blues at St James Park. But now they have to travel to Mourinho’s house and things aren’t likely to be as easy there. Newcastle have fallen out of form and are still waiting to name a new permanent manager. Not ideal preparations to go to Stamford Bridge.

There is a wonderful promotion available at online betting site 888Sport and it is a bit of unique one. Place a first, last or anytime goalscorer bet on any Premier League match (also applies to Champions League games) and if a player wearing a number 8 shirt scores in the match (in this case Chelsea’s Oscar and Newcastle’s Vurnon Anita), 888Sport will refund lost stakes on those markets as a free bet up to the value of £25!

Chelsea v Newcastle Betting Tips

Chelsea have let their lead slip at the top of the table, being joined level on points by Manchester City. That is down to the fact that their form has been slipping, winning just four of their last eight Premier League matches. But that is not the whole story, because Chelsea’s downfalls have been on the road, and they had a total collapse on New Year’s Day in their last away fixture, losing 5-3 at White Hart Lane against Spurs. But back at Stamford Bridge, it has been a different story, with Chelsea winning all nine of their Premier League home matches this season, averaging 2.3 goals per game and conceding just 0.3 goals per game on home turf. Can’t argue with that.

Going forward, Chelsea have tremendous firepower of course. To start with, Eden Hazard is in tremendous form, having scored four and assisted three in his last seven league games and is even money to net on Saturday in the anytime goalscorer market. Diego Costa is favourite in the market at a price of 4/7 with online bookmaker 888Sport and even John Terry looks value having netted in three of his last four Premier League matches for the Blues (4/1). The five goals they shipped against Spurs was as many as Chelsea had conceded in the 10 previous matches. No reason to abandon them, and could be worth shooting for a Chelsea to win to nil wager at 4/5 nonetheless.

Newcastle at least have the distinction of being the first side to beat Chelsea this season in any competition. Do they look likely to do it again? Not really. They won at St James Park against the Blues by scoring from two of just three shots on target when they hosted Chelsea back in early December. What should have been a massive boost to the Magpies though, actually worked against them, because they lost their following three matches and have won just one of their last five in the top flight. With the departure of the mastermind behind Chelsea’s demise, Alan Pardew, Newcastle are too risky to back to pull off another win.

Newcastle are without a win in their last four away games (D1 L3) and so seeing them storm Stamford Bridge isn’t likely. A positive for them though is Papiss Cisse who has scored five goals in his last six Premier League outings and so is showing good form. He has scored more Premier League goals against Chelsea (4) than against any other top flight club. Newcastle are likely to just try and sit back again and don’t expect too much impetus in the first half, because they have  scored the highest proportion of second half goals in the Barclays Premier League (76%).

Chelsea v Newcastle Betting Odds

Chelsea 1/5, Draw 13/2, Newcastle 16/1

Chelsea v Newcastle Predictions

Parking the bus against the Blues again may not pay off for Newcastle, who are without a clean sheet in their last eight league matches. Chelsea stuttered at St James Park, but they are more than good enough to set things right in the return fixture. They should find a way through and keep their 100% home from going. If they don’t it will be a bigger shock than their loss at St James Park in December.

The new year kicks off in its usual fashion will a full Premier League coupon to enjoy some football betting on. Online bookmaker Skybet are running their flagship enhanced odds offer again, which is another treble on three favourites from Thursday’s round of matches, all home favourites at that.

Back on Boxing Day, Skybet paid out big time as their enhanced treble promotion saw Man City, Man Utd and Liverpool all claim victories, punters lapping up the profits from the enhanced odds of 4/1 that was on offer from Skybet.

This time around for the new year’s day enhanced odds treble, Skybet are focused on Liverpool, Man City and Newcastle.

Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to guide Liverpool to their third win on the bounce in the top flight, when they host bottom of the table Leicester at Anfield.

Defending Premier League champions Manchester City host Sunderland as they look to put further pressure on Chelsea in the Premier League title race, and the Citizens appear to be home bankers after winning eight and drawing two of their last ten league matches.

Newcastle, who are undergoing a managerial transition with Alan Pardew heading to Selhurst Park, complete this special Price Boost treble as they welcome Burnley to St James’ Park.

Sky Bet’s head of trading Sandro Di Michele said: “Our Soccer Special Price Boosts continue to prove popular and we expect plenty of interest on New Year’s Day as punters look to start 2015 in style.

“Liverpool, Manchester City and Newcastle are all odds-on favourites so we will be hoping at least one of the trio will slip up.”

Online betting site Skyber are offering the price boost from 18/5 to a generous 5/2 on the treble of Liverpool, Man City and Newcastle all to win on New Year’s Day. The superb offer is open all customers, new and existing.

An interesting all-Premier League clash in the FA Cup, and the Foxes will be hoping to shake off their poor league form to find some new year cheer in the FA Cup. With Leicester having big concerns of relegation back down to the Championship, will they throw off the shackles and burdens of life in the English top flight and bag a win over the Magpies?

The Foxes are 13/8 underdogs in Leicester v Newcastle FA Cup betting, which isn’t too surprising given the fact that they are winless in their last nine matches against Newcastle in all competitions. They lost 1-0 at St James Park in this season’s Premier League back in October and that was part of thirteen match winless streak in the top flight that the Foxes suffered.

Leicester have struggled to put goals on the board this season and they have failed to score in their last three meetings against the Magpies. But can they turn around their fortunes by putting together a good FA Cup run, or will this just be a bit of a distraction for them?

Newcastle are understandable favourites for the game and have won three (D1) of the last four games against Leicester. From six previous matched played between Leicester and Newcastle in the FA Cup (and you have to go back to the 1940’s to find the last time that they met in the competition), Newcastle have put up a W3 D2 L1 record against the Foxes (including replays).

Leicester v Newcastle FA Cup Betting Odds

Newcastle 8/5, Leicester 13/8, Draw 12/5

Newcastle to win to nil is trading at 4/1 at online booakmer Paddy Power for their third round visit to the King Power Stadium and it doesn’t look as if it will be a high scoring fixture. Only one of the last ten meetings between the two have gone over 2.5 goals, so expect a low scoring affair and one you would imagine that the Magpies would be capable of stealing with their slightly better firepower.

Land a winning fivefold or bigger accumulator at online betting site Paddy Power with To Win & Both Teams To Score selections, and you will be paid out a 20% win bonus on top of your earnings. The maximum stake is £500 with a maximum payout of £1000 for a  bonus. This great offer applies to all of England’s main leagues, the FA Cup, Capital One Cup and the Scottish Premier.

Last season Crystal Palace secured survival in the Premier League thanks to a bold gamble which they made by changing manager in November. On that occasion they drafted in former Stoke man Tony Pulis to rescue them and it paid off in spades as he landed them a finish 12 points above the drop zone in 11th after the Eagles had been in the drop zone when Pulis had joined.

New Palace are back risking it all again on another managerial change to save their season, after they gave Neil Warnock the push. With Palace finishing the 2014 calendar year third from bottom, the club have put all their stock in getting Alan Pardew from Newcastle, the two clubs already having settled compensation.

So it is likely that Pardew will start his tenure at Selhurst Park soon and the bookmakers have reacted, with online bookmaker Bet365 easing the Eagles from 13/8 to 7/4 in Premier League relegation betting.

Burnley remain the favourites for the drop, despite their shock point earned against Manchester City on Sunday at the Etihad. The Clarets are 4/9 favourites to take the drop, with Leicester at 1/2 followed by Palace, Hull, QPR and West Brom who are all at a 7/4 quote in Premier League relegation betting.

Bet365’s On The Move bonus offers customers the chance to get a 100% matched stake as a free bet. Place your first mobile wager through a tablet/mobile device and you will get the value of that stake matched with a free bet on your account. New customers registering an account with Bet365 can get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus too.
