Newcastle Preview – Can Steve Bruce possible achieve a top-half finish for the magpies?

Inconsistency would be the perfect way to describe Newcastle’s recent form as of late. An unfortunate 2-1 loss to Watford through two penalties on Saturday was still not enough to overshadow the 5-0 drubbing they faced at the hands of Manchester City.

The magpies sit 13th in the table, with 43 points, seven behind 10th placed Burnley. A top-half finish is not out of the question. However, a change in form is needed in order for that to occur.

Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 2330 GMT, Tuesday 14 July)


As mentioned prior, Newcastle’s form recently has been varied, to say the least. Since Project Restart they have played 6; won 2, lost 2 and drawn 2. Conceding 11 goals in those matches for an average of 1.83 goals per game.

Newcastle usually robust in defense, especially at home with only 3 losses all season, have started leaking goals. Their lack of goals that have plagued them for the majority of the year has meant that if they go a goal down its hard for them to recover and get back into the game.

Newcastle will be looking at the likes of Saint-Maximin, Almiron and Gayle to chip in with goals if they hope to get anything from the game.


Tottenham Preview – Can Jose and Spurs reach European football?

There’s no question that Jose Mourinho has had an effect on the side of this spurs side. They have become more structured in defense and are visibly ready to grind out results in typical Jose fashion. His win at all costs mentality however, does have a negative effect on the viewing experience and creativity in the team.

7 goals in their last 6 is a far cry of expected return when the team consists of players such as Kane, Son and Alli.

Team morale is expected to be high after the North London derby win on Sunday, logic would suggest players will have a bit more spring in their step.

Jose mentioned that he is targeting finishing in a Europa League spot this season, they sit 3 points away from Wolves in 6th with 3 games left to play. A win on Wednesday night will be a perfect way to reach that coveted spot.

The bigger task at hand for spurs is scoring the goals and not keeping them out. In their last 5 games, Spurs have conceded 4 goals. Keeping 3 clean sheets in the process.

Logic would suggest that Spurs won’t concede very many in this game, but with European football on the line, in their attempts to break forward and score, gaps and poor marking could lead to a Newcastle goal.

Newcastle vs Tottenham Betting Advice

the reverse fixture between the two sides resulted in a Newcastle 1-0 win, so Spurs will be looking to rectify that loss and stop Steve bruce’s side from completing the double. Prediction wise id say not a lot of goals will be in this fixture, but both sides do pose a serious threat in scoring.

Key Facts – Newcastle vs Tottenham Betting Tip

  • Newcastle only lost 3 games at home this season
  • Tottenham have earned 3 clean sheets in last 5 games
  • Tottenham have only won 3 away games this season

For Spurs the game on Wednesday could mean that the end the season with some real momentum as they build on one more push towards securing European football. Their sturdy defense is a massive aide to their mission and it will be hard to see them concede more than one goal in this fixture. However, there is a toothless approach to Spurs this season away from home with those 3 wins. Furthermore, St James Park has become a hard place to travel to and leave with the maximum 3 points. There is a high chance that Newcastle could score the first goal and then aim to sit back and soak up pressure.

With the individual talents of players, however, it will be no surprise to see both teams score in this tie.
