Football – England – Premier League Betting Tips

Newcastle united kept their winning feeling going last Saturday with a 3-1 home win over League Two outfit, Luton Town, and thus avoided a potential banana-skin as they progressed into the fourth round.

The Magpies return to Premier League action and with a more confident approach following a 1-0 win away at Stoke City which pushed Stoke manager Mark Hughes closer to the brink of being sacked. It was a much needed win for Newcastle who had previously recorded just one league win from 12 matches, which was a 3-2 win away at West Ham.

Surprisingly, Newcastle have really struggled at home so far this season, and perhaps the weight of expectation is too much for Rafa Benitez’s ‘Championship’ squad in the top tier, as they’ve lost five of their last six at St James’s Park. Newcastle’s home record stands at  3-2-6  9/13.

Swansea City make the long trip up to the north east, sitting bottom of the Premier League despite their recent smash-and-grab 2-1 win away at Watford recently. The Swans, however, returned to type last time out as they lost 2-0 at home to Tottenham, and they’ll face a tough trip to Newcastle even though the hosts are also trying to find some consistency.

The win at Watford ended a miserable run of seven straight defeats for the Welsh outfit, although their away record still stands at a poor looking  2-2-7  7/17. The visitors had started their season brightly enough on the road as they’d recorded a win at Crystal Palace either side of 0-0 draws at Southampton and Tottenham respectively, but the rot well and truly set in afterwards.

Newcastle have won the last two meetings against Swansea City, and I reckon they could squeeze a narrow 1-0 win here but I recommend using the handicap just in case.
