Bet there weren’t many people thinking that Newcastle would be one of only two unbeaten teams in the Premier League after ten matches, huh? Well, Alan Pardew has really done a great job with the Magpies, who have the best defensive record in the Premier League so far. The mean Magpies have conceded just six goals on the season, two fewer than league leaders Manchester City. Pretty remarkable really, and more fascinating would be the outcome of the scenario of seeing Newcastle beat Stoke on Monday night. This is because, with another three points under their belt, Newcastle would move up into third place, overtaking Chelsea and sitting just one point behind Manchester United. The Magpies ran out 1-0 winners over Wigan in their last Premier League outing, and while they haven’t faced any of the three teams above them before Monday night’s match, they have held both Arsenal and Spurs to a draw. So there is a big buzz about the Toon Army this season and rightly so, and they will head to Stoke in search of that big three points. As for Stoke, they are in mid-table, just where everyone expected them to be, winning three, drawing three and losing three. Stoke have made the Britannia Stadium a very difficult place for teams to go to over the past couple of seasons, and they are unbeaten there so far this season, including a win over Liverpool there, and a 1-1 draw against Manchester United. Stoke have been struggling for goals though this season, managing just seven in their nine games, and while they are generally tough to break down themselves, they haven’t offered much going forward. So Stoke v Newcastle Premier League betting is going to be interesting on Monday night, and online bookmaker Paddy Power have a great Money Back Special running for the match.
We have seen a flurry of red cards lately, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Bolton being the worst offenders with three red cards a piece in the Premier League this season, but Paddy Power are hoping that there won’t be one at the Britannia Stadium on Monday night. If there is a Red Card in the Stoke v Newcastle match, then Paddy Power will pay out refunds on all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast singles placed on the match. While neither side have seen a Red Card this season, both have racked up 18 yellow cards so far. This Money Back Special offers some great insurance for your Monday night football betting. In the First Goalscorer Market for example, Newcastle’s top scorer Demba Ba is priced at 13/2 to open the scoring, while Stoke’s Peter Crouch is 6/1 favourite. So there are good options for value in this market, all covered by the Paddy Power Money Back Special which will pay out refunds if a Red Card is shown. A 1-1 draw in the Correct Score market is the favourite outcome priced at 5/1 with the bookie. So good options, great value in Stoke v Newcastle betting at Paddy Power. The popular bookie offers a free £50 bet as a sign up bonus for new customers registering an account. Paddy Power will match the value of your first bet with a free bet up to the maximum of £50!
