Newcastle v Sunderland Betting Preview
Sixteen points separate the two sides in the Premier League standings but on the pitch, things are probably going to be a lot closer between them. The Tyne and Wear derby is always a great occasion and this should follow suit as Sunderland are still scrapping for all they are worth to pull away from the drop zone. Will they be able to extend their unbeaten run against the stuttering Magpies to five?

Newcastle have been struggling to find the back of the net lately, and Sunderland aren’t the highest scoring of teams. So it could be worth taking some coverage from online betting site Bet365 with their 0-0 Bore Draw promotion. If the game ends up being goalless, then the bookie will refund lost stakes placed before kick off on the Correct Score, Scorecast and Half Time/Full Time markets. New customers can get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus from Bet365 as well, who will match the value of your initial deposit.

Newcastle v Sunderland Betting Tips:
Things haven’t been going smoothly for the Magpies lately, having won just one of their last five played in the Premier League. They stuttered to a disappointing 0-0 draw away at Norwich during midweek and haven’t been going that well at home either. They have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six at St James Park now and they have lost the last two without scoring. They are winless in their last three on home turf in the league. Of concern for Alan Pardew should be the fact that Newcastle have now failed to score in four of their last five outings and it suggests that this could go under 2.5 goals for a price of 5/6 with Ladbrokes. The margins have been thin for the Magpies at home this season, having averaged 1.5 goals per game there and having conceded 1.09 per game. It’s why they haven’t bettered a W5 D3 L3 record.

There have been five red cards shown in the last seven league meetings between the two sides, so that trend could add to the drama in the game. The Magpies shipped out Yohan Cabaye to PSG during the week and they have also lost the services of top scorer Loic Remy who suffered a red card against Norwich in the week. There’s just not the consistency there from Pardew’s men at the moment to really back them with a lot of confidence. Over on Wearside though, there is the sense of growing confidence. They produced great work in getting to the League Cup final at the expense of Manchester United and that seems to be translating over into the league as well. The Black Cats are unbeaten in their last three (W2 D1) and have suffered just the one loss in their last eight in the league. On the road, Sunderland are unbeaten in their last five, so look to be in decent shape.

Sunderland posted a crucial 1-0 win over Stoke during midweek which saw them claw their way out of the drop zone at the Stadium of Light, but there has been just the two away wins from them all term. That man Fabio Borini may be worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market as he has scored in each of his last two against Newcastle (from just 38 minutes played). Sunderland take a W2 D2 record in the Tyne and Wear derbies with them to the rivals on Saturday and that should make them a decent bet to at least avoid defeat here. You do get the feeling that there isn’t going to be anything much to split these two and Sunderland will have their backers in a Double Result.

Prediction
The Black Cats have picked up eleven points in their last six Premier League matches and are showing a lot of fight and composure under Gus Poyet. There is probably a lot of value in shooting for a Sunderland +0.5 Asian Handicap for Even Money at Bet365.

Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)

Newcastle v Arsenal Betting Preview
The Magpies will be looking to not only dent Arsenal’s title challenge on Tyneside on the weekend, but all get themselves in the hunt for a top four place. A win for the Magpies would see them move to within just three points of leader’s Arsenal. The Gunners took their first win in four on Boxing Day but this is going to be another big test of their mettle.

Newcastle v Arsenal Betting Tips:
The Magpies are in a pretty good stride after posting a comfortable 5-1 win over Stoke at St James Park on Boxing Day. There has been a return of eight goals in their last two games now from the Magpies and both Loic Remy and Yohan Cabaye have two in their last two. The latter has scored in three of his last four and is worth a look in the Anytime Goalscorer market at 4/1. Remy is a lot closer to the top of the market at a price of 2/1 for the Magpies. So with seven wins in their last nine matches now, Alan Pardew’s men are not going to fear this one. In that run the have beaten Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester United, so Arsenal shouldn’t faze them really. The Magpies have been good at home this season, posting five wins, three draws and just the one defeat. They may have been going along quietly for some, but they have scored at a rate of almost two per game at home this term.

Only in one of their last seven home matches in the Premier League have Newcastle failed to put at least two goals on the board. That should present a pretty big challenge to Arsenal. Newcastle are unbeaten in their last six at St James Park now. There is certainly enough in Newcastle’s form at the moment to suggest that they are capable of taking all three points here. It would be a turnaround in form, as they haven’t scored in their last two home games against the Gunners, and haven’t taken a win against Arsenal in the last five attempts. Arsene Wenger’s men snapped a three match winless streak in the top flight with a comeback 3-1 win over West Ham at Upton Park on Boxing Day. The Gunners have been looking a bit tired and leggy through December and really haven’t risen up to the challenge of some tougher matches. The West Ham game had became so important for Arsene Wenger that he only made one chance from the previous 0-0 draw against Chelsea instead of rotating his squad.

Arsenal have been decent on the road this term, winning six, drawing one and losing two. Those two defeats have come in their last four away games though (at Man City and Man United). They may need to get Olivier Giroud firing again, as the Frenchman hasn’t netted since November 23rd in the Premier League, a six match barren streak. Arsenal have averaged two goals per game against over their last four matches, so you can see goals coming in this one and Over 2.5 Goals is trading at 8/11 with Stan James. The Gunners still managed to hold on to top spot after Boxing Day, but the pressure is increasing all of the time. Do they have the legs to sustain themselves? There will be big questions asked of them of them on Sunday. They are unbeaten in their last seven visits to St James Park in all competitions though. Good enough for a point perhaps? Both Teams To Score offers some value at price of 4/6 it is isn’t a bad option at all in a game which really could go either way.

Prediction
There does look to be some straight forward betting options in this one and some may be surprised that Newcastle go as underdogs in this one. The good news in that, is that there is brilliant 5/6 value at Stan James in a Newcastle-Draw Double Chance bet.

Premier League Betting

Man United v Newcastle Betting Preview
The pressure is mounting on Red Devil’s boss David Moyes after their title defence came further off the rails in a midweek defeat against Everton. It has left them twelve points off the lead in mid table mediocrity and could have a big fight on their hands to make the top four this term. Still, a win over Newcastle on the weekend, who sit a point above United, would go a long way to appease the restless fans.

Man United v Newcastle Betting Odds at online bookmaker Boylesports
Man United 4/9, Draw 10/3, Newcastle 6/1

United will want to come out of the blocks quickly in this one and stamp their authority on the game. Back a first goalscorer selection and if your bet wins inside the first twenty minutes of this game (applies to this or any other Premier League match) then you will be paid out at double your original odds. So if you are looking at the First Goalscorer market then you may as well take the chance to double your money. New customers registering an account with online betting site Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Man United v Newcastle Betting Tips:
Can the Red Devils dig themselves out of the hole which they have gotten themselves into? They are now without a win in their last three league matches (D2 L1) and Moyes will have felt the bitter blow of losing at home against his former club during the week. The problem for the Red Devils is all in the midfield area where they look very weak and lack creativity. Their loss against Everton was their second defeat at Old Trafford this season and their overall home record stands at W3 D2 L2, not exactly the form of Champions. They do have a very easy looking run of fixtures during December, so there is a chance that they will turn this around, and Wayne Rooney looks the most likely to drag them forward, but he misses this one through suspension. So they’ll need Robin van Persie backfiring, who is trading at Even Money in the Anytime Goalscorer market.

Defensively United have now conceded five goals in their last three league matches and that again is because the protection from the midfield isn’t there. So is it worth backing both teams to score at a price of 8/11 with Boylesports here? Perhaps not, because at Old Trafford this term Manchester United have averaged just 1.14 goals per game going forward and have conceded at under a goal per game. They do have good home form against the Magpies so perhaps a narrow margin of victory is most likely for the Red Devils, and a better way to go. How easily the Magpies were beaten on the road at Swansea during the week should give David Moyes some respite. Alan Pardew’s Newcastle had hit  a strong stretch of form, winning four in a row throughout November, but they were outplayed at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday in a 3-0 defeat. Still, sitting above United in the league as they head to Old Trafford, will give them incentive to defend.

Loic Remy has the speed to get in behind the United defence, and the Frenchman is trading at 5/2 in the Anytime Goalscorer market at good value. In nineteen previous visits to Old Trafford in the Premier League, the Magpies haven’t managed to record a win. Not one. Last season they took the lead three times in this corresponding fixture and still ended up losing 4-3. So there is reason enough to suggest that they aren’t going to come away with a win here, and yet would be tempted to see the score kept down under 2.5 goals for a price of 6/5 with Boylesports. The Magpies haven’t drawn on the road this season, posting a W3 D0 L4 record, so it’s likely to go one way or the other. The best way to get anything out of the Tynesiders is a Newcastle – Draw Double Chance shot at 9/5. It is highly unlikely that they will go better than a draw.

Prediction
United have their problems this season but this is going to be about grinding out a result, and you can see them doing it. There should be a response from them, and therefore would consider a Man United 1 Goal Winning Margin is at 11/4 with Boylesports.

Sunderland v Newcastle Betting Preview
The Tyne and Wear derby rolls around and the Black Cats won’t be looking forward to this one. They are floundering badly at the foot of the table and could badly do with a win. Newcastle are up in mid table safety but have still been far too patchy to back with a lot of confidence. This should be a feisty affair again and new Sunderland boss Gus Poyet could give the whole club a lift with a win over their bitter rivals. But with a horrible defence, can they keep out the Magpies?

Sunderland v Newcastle Betting Tips:
This should be a contest where there is no love lost between the two. The Black Cats are in dire straits having gathered just one point in the entire season. The arrival of Gus Poyet didn’t have an immediate desired result as they scored a couple of own goals in a 4-0 defeat against Swansea last weekend. It just confounded their problems and they have conceded a massive twenty goals already in their eight matches this season and it is hard to see them taking a clean sheet away from this one. Going forward they have only managed to net five goals of their own this season so there are major problems at both ends. That has been six defeats on the bounce for them now heading into the Tyne and Wear derby and because they have conceded so many this term, it may be worth going Over 2.5 goals for odds of 4/5 with Bet Victor. It also may lead to considering the option of No in the Both Teams To Score Market for odds of 11/10 as well.

Sunderland have only managed to win just one of their previous 11 Tyne and Wear derbies against the Magpies in the Premier League (D5 L5) so they have little form. The coverage from Ladbrokes on this one could be valuable as there have been five red cards in the last six derbies between the two. Sunderland have not won any of their last 12 Premier League matches (L9 D3) so really hard to see them coming up with three points. Since they beat Newcastle 3-0 back in April, the Black Cats have not scored more than one goal in a single Premier League match, a run of 14 games. So there is heavy favouritism for the Magpies in this one and they have scored in all 11 of their previous Premier League away matches against Sunderland. There could be some value in Newcastle To Win To Nil at odds of 7/2 with Bet Victor.

The most likely candidate to fire the Magpies to victory is going to be Loic Remy who has been a breath of fresh air for Alan Pardew’s men up top. The Frenchman is trading at 9/5 in the Anytime Goalscorer market for some decent looking value. But Shola Ameobi has a great record against Sunderland. He has banged in seven goals in the Premier League against the Black Cats. All of Newcastle’s victories on the road in 2013 has been by a 2-1 scoreline. If you fancy a continuance of that trend, then a Newcastle 2-1 Correct Score bet is offered at 10/1 with Bet Victor. Newcastle have scored exactly two goals in each of their last five matches as well, so they know where the goal is well enough. They aren’t particularly great defensively themselves, but they just look as if they have the extra firepower to be able to rack up the three points.

Prediction
There has been little consistency from the Magpies this season, and hard to know what is going to happen with them. All of their last five matches have gone over 2.5 goals and it is worth riding on that for odds of 4/5 with Bet Victor.

Alan Pardev (Newcastle)

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Preview
It could be a very interesting afternoon at St James’ Park with some in form strikers on show. Newcastle will be looking for Loic Remy to try and outshine Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez in this one. Liverpool have shown pretty solid consistency this season while Newcastle while looking more promising this season, have still been too unpredictable. Can the Magpies claim a big scalp and what would be a massive three points?

The bookie will match the value of your first stake with a free bet.

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Tips:
Any revival at Newcastle is clearly going to be inspired by Loic Remy. The French striker has been involved in six goals in five matches for Newcastle since joining them on loan. It has been just the impression that the club wanted from him. Simply because of his form therefore, he is going to make a solid shot at 15/8 in the Anytime Goalscorer market for this one. Goals could be on offer here because this has been one of the highest scoring fixtures in the history of the Premier League. Only match ups between Spurs and Arsenal have produced more goals than when Newcastle and Liverpool have come together. It has been a long run of 38 games between the two clubs now without a 0-0 draw having been produced, so would look far from that. Taking a look at some goal scoring option bets, going Over 2.5 Goals is being offered at odds of 4/6 by online bookmaker Paddy Power.

Another good option to take may be for Liverpool To Score First because they have predominantly been a first half side. They have scored ten of their 11 league goals in the first half of matches this season, and have only conceded one in the first 45 minutes. Taking a wager on that is offered at 8/13 as well Paddy Power. Newcastle’s home form in the league has been patchy, taking a W1 D1 L1 record. The last time they were at home, they lost 3-2 against Hull. But that is part of a run for Newcastle of having scored exactly two goals in each of their last four games. They have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four matches though now and there has to be questions raised about whether their defence can stand up to the SaS threat of Suarez and Sturridge from Liverpool.

So again, you can see why goals may come in this one. Suarez and Sturridge are being offered at odds of 6/5 with Paddy Power in the Anytime Goalscorer market. This fixture last season produced a crazy result, with the Reds running out 6-0 winners, a game in which Daniel Sturridge netted himself a brace. In the last four league meetings at St James’ Park, there have been two wins each recorded. Brendan Rodgers’ men have shown enough grit and guile on the road this season to take the role as favourites, having taken two wins and a draw away from tricky fixtures at Aston Villa, Swansea and Sunderland. You simply can’t dismiss the threat that their forwards will bring to the table and you would expect them to get on the scoresheet.

Prediction
Liverpool have shown decent ability to keep things tight at the back, especially in closing out matches in the second half. The safest way to cover this game could be in backing Both Teams To Score at 8/13 with Paddy Power.

Nasri - Negredo - Navas (City)

Man City v Newcastle Betting Preview
The Magpies will be looking to put a miserable season behind them and start afresh with new hopes. But they haven’t done much to change up the squad at St James Park, so does that mean there will be troubles again? They were poor on the road last season and they have to kick things off with a tough looking visit to the Etihad Stadium. Man City have been spending wisely in the summer and with an unbeaten home record against Newcastle to protect in the Premier League, will new boss Manuel Pellegrini be celebrating his first three points?

New customers registering an account with Paddy Power can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Man City v Newcastle Betting Tips:
New City boss Manuel Pellegrini has been taking positive strides over the summer to put his stamp on things at the Etihad. While other clubs have been pondering over who to sign and arguing among themselves, City have gone straight for the jugular in signing Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo, Stevan Jovetic and Fernandinho. They have been straight to the point and positive. Pellegrini is determined to turn City into a side full of attacking flair and prowess and they look to be heading in the right direction, with bookmakers just giving the edge as favouritism in the Premier League  Outright winner market. With a nice start to the season to come at home, this will be a good chance for the to come out of the blocks firing.

City’s defence at home is usually pretty reliable and as they won ten of their nineteen home games last season to nil, it could be worth looking at that valuable option for this go around. Man City to win to Nil is being offered at odds of Evens with online betting site PaddyPower.  City beat Newcastle to nil in last season’s fixture as well, thumping the troubled Magpies 4-0 and that made it seven wins on the bounce for City now against Newcastle. With the new signings and the fact that Newcastle have never won a Premier League match at City in nine previous visits, well, it should be a home three points all the way here. Newcastle have lost seven of those nine previous Premier League trips to Man City and probably won’t be relishing the start they have been handed to the new season.

It was a miserable season on the road for the Magpies last term, winning just once away from home all term. In total, it has now been thirteen Premier League fixtures in which Newcastle have failed to record a win over City. Not only that, they have only managed eight goals in their last 13 EPL fixtures against City as well, and they have conceded at a rate of over two goals per game in that period. After struggling for most of last season, they haven’t really been digging around the transfer market desperately, only drafting in Olivier Kemen and striker Loic Remy as new faces. So how Alan Pardew’s troops are going to shape up this season is anyone’s guess. Given their poor record against City, it could be another disappointing opening for them, as they have only won two of their last ten opening fixtures in the Premier League as it is.

City were the only side in the top flight to score in every home game last season, and given the dynamic new arrivals on the scene as well, and City’s good defensive home record, it should be a Man City victory here without too many scares.  May be worth have a shot at Alvaro Negredo as First Goalscorer at odds of 3/1 with Paddy Power.

The Magpies can rest easy in their final match of the season, having warded off the demons of relegation which looked to be haunting them. Alan Pardew’s men will live to fight another season. So all of the pressure is on the visiting Arsenal for this one, who need to rattle off a win to be certain of finishing fourth and getting into the Champions League next season.

Newcastle v Arsenal Recommended Bet:
The Magpies found points just at the right time of the season, even though they have won one of their last five in the Premier League. That was an away win at QPR last week after falling behind from the penalty spot in the game. Newcastle are without a win in their last two home matches though, both ending in defeat, losing 3-0 against Sunderland in the Tyne and Wear derby, and then getting hammered 6-0 by Liverpool. Overall this season on home turf, Newcastle have posted a W9 D1 L8 record and there hasn’t been a league draw at St James Park in the last sixteen. Scoring from Newcastle at home hasn’t been great this season, they have converted at a rate of 1.3 goals per game, conceding at a rate of 1.6 per game. 72% of all of Newcastle’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals.

Newcastle suffered a massive 7-3 defeat at the hands of Arsenal earlier in the season. The Magpies have only won one of their last eleven Premier League matches against the Gunners (W1 D5 L5). They have failed to score in their last two home games as well, and the last time they went three in a row was back in 2007 (actually part of a six match no-scoring streak). Arsene Wenger’s men will be favourite for this one, not only because they have to push for a result to secure a Champions League spot, but because they have won their last four away matches in a row as well. A midweek win over Wigan, relegating the Latics, saw the Gunners leave themselves in fourth place, just a point ahead of Spurs, and only two behind Chelsea.

There is the scenario, that if Chelsea draw and Arsenal win by a one goal margin (all depending on how many goals the Blues score) that the Gunners and Chelsea would finish with identical records for the season and have to face in each other in a play off for third. Arsenal have been great in the second half of matches this season, if only second half results counted, they would be top of the league. The Gunners are currently on a nine match unbeaten streak in the Premier League, winning seven of them. With five wins in their last six away matches in the top flight, they are going strongly enough to return three points. Arsenal have scored at a rate of 1.3 goals per game on the road this season, but defensively they have been great, superb, conceding at a rate of just 0.8 per away game.

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Preview
It looks as if the Magpies have done enough to get themselves clear of the drop zone, thanks to the failure of the teams beneath them to pick up points. So it is just a matter of consolidating position at the moment for Alan Pardew and looking for better times next season. Still, they will want to get points on the board so they aren’t looking back over their shoulder. Liverpool will of course go without Luis Suarez who won’t be seen again until next season. Will that leave them short up front and put a dampener to the end of their season?

The Magpies do have a bit of breathing space in the relegation battle, more so if Wigan don’t win their game in hand over them. Until they were hammered 3-0 at home by Sunderland in mid April, they had won four Premier League matches in a row at St James Park. It has pretty much been their home form which has been keeping them float. The Magpies took a 1-1 draw at Anfield earlier in the season, being pegged back by Luis Suarez, which isn’t going to happen in this game. A little bit of fight from Newcastle and Liverpool could be there for the picking in this one. At home this season, the Magpies have posted a W9 D1 L7 record in the Premier League and they are without a draw in their last 15 home matches.

They have scored at a rate of 1.4 goals per game, exactly the amount which they have conceded too. 70% of Newcastle’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals so there is the potential of some scoring in Saturday’s match. Just to put into context Newcastle’s home form, they have taken 75% of all their points at home this season. One win in the last five matches though isn’t showing great form though and makes them vulnerable. Liverpool have shown good form against Newcastle in the Premier League, winning nine and drawing one of the last 13 meetings. The Reds have drawn their last three in a row now in the top flight, so even with Suarez around they have been struggling to get wins on the board. Take him out of the picture and it could be tougher.

The faint dreams of Brendan Rodger’s men in breaking into Europe has pretty much been shot in the foot by Suarez and his biting. They have suffered just one loss in their last eight Premier League matches, so they aren’t in bad shape. Two of their last three matches though have ended in frustrating 0-0 draws against West Ham and Reading. On the Road, the Reds have been beaten just once in their last six matches now and overall have posted a W5 D7 L5 record for the season. The Reds have scored at a rate of 1.7 goals per game, but have conceded at a rate of 1.5 on the road. Luis Suarez had scored a dozen of his 23 goals away from home. Steven Gerrard is the next top scorer on the road for Liverpool this season with just four.

A draw really looks to be a plausible outcome in this one. The Magpies have won the last two at home against Liverpool, but are lacking a bit in all areas of the pitch this season. Tough match up front for Liverpool without Suarez and a draw trading at a price of 5/1 with online bookmaker Bet365 looks decent value.

Reading - Aston Villa

If you are finding yourself in Premier League Relegation betting talks at this stage of the season, then you know you are in trouble. While it is safe to assume that both Reading and QPR will be playing Championship football next season, it leaves one relegation spot open. With a general five games to go on the season, Wigan are occupying that spot, but do have the advantage of a game in hand over the teams directly above them. Will that be a factor? The overwhelming favourites of Reading and QPR to take the drop aren’t worth discussing at this stage, as both sit ten points clear of safety, perhaps eleven when you take into account goal difference as well. Assuming Wigan turn up and win their game in hand, it would leave an immensely tight scrap to avoid being the third side to drop.

Wigan 5/4 at online bookmaker Ladbrokes
Wigan, trading at a price of 5/4 with online bookmaker Ladbrokes are the favourites to make up the triumvirate. But everything could all come down to the fixture list for the remainder of the season. It is a massive achievement for Wigan that they have reached the FA Cup final will be playing in the Europa League next season. But how is their Premier League status holding up? It is certainly on shaky grounds and that FA Cup final against Man City could actually get in the way of their survival, having an extra match to squeeze in, which isn’t going to help. Wigan will need a couple of wins to get out of their troubles, at the very least. There are games in which points could be picked up, away at West Ham, and at home against Swansea. The crucial game for Wigan could all come down to the final day when they host Aston Villa. That could well be the shootout for survival. They managed to survive last season by taking 15 points from the last 18 available to stay up. It is going to take a lot to match that.
Wigan Final Six: a v West Ham, h v Tottenham, a v West Brom, h v Swansea, a v Arsenal, h v Aston Villa

Aston Villa 3/1 at online bookmaker Ladbrokes
The Villains, one of the Premier League’s founding clubs, have been struggling all season, but there have been some signs of promise from Paul Lambert’s men. They had started putting wins on the board at the right time of the season, but they still have the second worst defence in the league. They are very lightweight going forward as well, but the young side has started to gel together a bit under the pressure of the threat of relegation and are responding. There are teams in worse form around them, and they look promising enough to scrape together enough points to survive. They have enjoyed an upwards swing in form although they have a couple of tough games to come against Man United and Chelsea. The game on the final day against Wigan could be massive, but if they pick up points against Sunderland and Norwich in between, that may just be enough to keep the relegation wolves from their door.
Aston Villa Final Five: a v Man United, h v Sunderland, a v Norwich, h v Chelsea, a v Wigan

Stoke 4/1 at online bookmaker Ladbrokes
The Potters have slowly but surely been dragged into the relegation battle after a terrible run of form, picking up just one point in seven matches.  They have been sliding and sliding and Tony Pulis has called on his troops to show some fight and character. The problem for Stoke is that they are the Premier League’s lowest scoring side this season and that is really beginning to hurt them because their defence hasn’t been as tight as it usually is. They are in a fight, especially with the improving Aston Villa level on points with them with five matches to play. The Potters were eighth on Boxing Day, and they have just going into a major self-destruct mode since then. The goals have pretty much dried up but the fixture list is pretty kind to them. There should be points available against QPR, Norwich, Sunderland and Southampton and the only tough game is a home match against Tottenham who are in a fight for European spots. The run in is set up nicely for them the to survive, but three of the five games are on the road and if points don’t come from their next games against QPR and Norwich, they will be under immense pressure. Two goals in their last seven games don’t bode well for them and could be good value to take the drop, because Wigan and Villa are in better form.
Stoke Final Five: a v QPR, h v Norwich, a v Sunderland, h v Tottenham, a v Sunderland

Sunderland 6/1 at online bookmaker Ladbrokes
The Black Cats aren’t out of the woods, despite their rousing win over Newcastle. They were helped in that match with a Magpies wrongly-disallowed goal and newcastle keeper Tim Krul going off injured. New boss Paolo Di Canio has probably raised spirits at the club, who have taken just 5pts from the last 18 leading into their final five matches of the season. There are a couple of tough looking games for Sunderland to come, notably against Everton and Tottenham. But sandwiched in between that are games which are winnable. However, they are against teams who are all around them. There are a couple of high profile clashes against Stoke and Aston Villa to get themselves through, as well as a game against Southampton. Defeats against the Potters and Villains would be highly costly. Still treading thin waters.
Sunderland Final Five: h v Everton, a v Aston Villa, h v Stoke, h v Southampton, a v Tottenham

Norwich 9/1, Newcastle 20/1
These two look to be just on the outskirts of real relegation danger, but could quickly get sucked deeper in. There is probably a bigger worry for Norwich, who didn’t pick up a win in any of their seven matches before their final five fixtures. They are in terrible form of 3 points from 18 before heading into those final games. They probably just have enough in the tank to squeeze over the line, but there are big three pointers to come against reading, Stoke and Aston Villa. They’ll need to get all they can out of those with games against West Brom and a visit to Man City to round off the season with. The thing working in Newcastle’s favour is that they are the top scoring team inside the bottom eight, so will probably have enough to stay up, even though they have been slumping a bit of late, including taking that crushing blow against bitter rivals Sunderland. Have big games against Liverpool and Arsenal to come in their last two home matches, which aren’t easy. Given they have been so poor on the road, away games at West Brom, West Ham and QPR could easily make them vulnerable.
Norwich Final Five: h v Reading, a v Stoke, h v Aston Villa, h v West Brom, a v Man City
Newcastle Final Five: a v West Brom, h v Liverpool, a v West Ham, a v QPR, h v Arsenal

Alan Pardev (Newcastle)

Newcastle v Sunderland Betting Preview
The Magpies have a great chance to sink their rivals down into some serious relegation issues on Sunday. At the same time Alan Pardew’s men would just about ease all worries about taking the drop themselves. A nice feisty north east derby is on the cards for this one, with Sunderland’s Paulo Di Canio needing desperately to find his first win with the Black Cats.

Newcastle v Sunderland Recommended Bet:
It has all still been pretty patchy from the Magpies of late, but because of other resultsaround them and a late winner at Fulham last weekend, they have given themselves some breathing space. They bowed out of the Europa League on Thursday night, so Sunderland will have had an extra rest over them. But despite their form looking patchy, Newcastle’s form has been very good at home lately. They have won the last four in a row at the St James Park, it has just been their away form which has been abysmal. So, with Sunderland struggling, Newcastle could well take their chances here. One interesting trend to look at, is that in three of their last four wins at home, Newcastle have scored a 90th minute winner. So you probably aren’t going to be looking at big winning margins here for the Magpies if they get the job done.

Newcastle have ran up a W9 D1 L6 record at home this season and they have scored at a rate of 1.5 goals per game. Their January signings have helped them immensely, but they still are looking a little light up front. Newcastle haven’t drawn a home matches in the last 14 now in the Premier League. Shola Ameobi has scored seven goals in 13 Premier League meetings with Sunderland and he is the top scoring player in the Tyne-Wear derby in the Premier League era. So given Newcastle’s home form, and Sunderland not having managed a win in their last nine games, it’s little surprise that the visitors go as underdogs in this one. They were held to a 1-1 draw earlier in the season against Newcastle, and right now they may be welcome of a point. Sunderland have lost their last two games back to back and have been defeated in six of the last eight.

With Wigan playing in the FA Cup semi final, even if they lose, the Black Cats won’t fall into the drop zone this weekend. But they are level on points with Wigan and will have played two games more, so they are treading on thin ground. Sunderland are without a win in seven league visits to St James Park now, and in their 10 Premier League visits there, they have never kept a clean sheet. Sunderland have only won one of the last 16 Premier League Tyne-Wear derbies now and everything looks as if it is trending against them and might well they take another hit. Newcastle aren’t always that dependable at short odds, and as not a lot of goals are expected, it’s worth consider a Draw/Newcastle Half Time/Full Time bet for a price of 9/2 at online bookmaker Bet Victor.

Form
Newcastle WLLLWD, Sunderland LDLDLL

Stat Attack
Four of the last six derbies have ended 1-1
Sunderland have won one of the last sixteen EPL derbies against Newcastle
Sunderland have never kept a clean sheet at St James Park in the Premier League
Newcastle have scored three 90th minute winners in their last four home wins
