Man United v Newcastle League Cup Betting Odds, Preview and Predictions

Ryan Giggs (Manchester United)
Man United V Newcastle The biggest clash of the League Cup third round on Wednesday night. After coming through with a win following a poor display at Anfield on the weekend, Man United will look to some of their fringe players to keep their League Cup run going. Newcastle meanwhile are looking to just hold on to their steady foothold on the season. Both teams are more than likely to field understrength sides so will that tip the balance in favour of the Red Devils who do have home advantage for this one? There are higher priorities of course to be concerned about, especially for United who have a big match against Spurs at Old Trafford next Saturday. Man United v Newcastle Betting Odds at online bookmaker Bet365: Man United 4/9, Draw 10/3, Newcastle 6/1 Verdict: While it is one of the matches which will take top billing for the third round of the League Cup, this will be something of an understated match no doubt. United were poor at Anfield on Sunday, which followed up a poor performance in the Champions League against Galatasaray in midweek. United are another of the big guns who really haven't woken up this season, but they have had the prowess of Robin van Persie to fall back upon. The Dutchman and other of the main starting crop are likely to sit this one out as Sir Alex Ferguson looks for squad rotation and has a look at some fresh legs as well in his side. The Red Devils have a good home record in the League Cup at the moment, as they have won eight of their last nine at home in the competition. Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has had a busy time of things with the Europa League as well. He sent an understrength side out in the competition last week and will probably do so for the League Cup as well. The Newcastle youngsters have done a pretty good job actually, have held their own when they have been thrown into action this season. This actually could be a good game for Papiss Cisse to try and open his account for the season after missing a penalty on the weekend in the Magpies' 1-0 win over Norwich. Still, you have to suspect that the Red Devils are experts at getting through matches like this and it will be worth backing at a Man Utd -1.25 Asian Handicap for a price of Evens with online bookmaker Bet365. Head to Head: The Red Devils actually failed to beat the Magpies last season in the Premier League, drawing at Old Trafford and then losing heavily on Tyneside. That is a run of three matches without a win for United when meeting Newcastle. The Magpies have an awful record at Old Trafford. The last time they won there was back in 1972 and that equates to a run of 31 matches at OT without a win. That is a pretty powerful stat right there, although the Magpies have picked up two 1-1 draws in their last three visits.

Everton v Newcastle Betting Odds, Preview and Prediction

Cisse - Santon (Newcastle)
Everton V Newcastle An evenly matched game in prospect here? Everton had made a strong start to the season but crashed against West Brom in their previous match. Will their home form and good record against the Magpies be enough to see them get back on track. Newcastle have not exploded out of the blocks this season. Can Papiss Cisse find his goalscoring boots again to help them in this difficult match? Everton v Newcastle Betting Odds at online bookmaker Ladbrokes: Everton 8/11, Draw 11/4, Newcastle 15/4 Verdict: Should be a pretty tight game really between these two and as can be seen by the odds, a draw is quite probable here. But you have to take some initiative with Everton being at home and they are a on great stretch of form at Goodison. They have already beaten Manchester United there, thanks to a towering performance from Marouane Fellaini and the Toffees have lost just one of their last ten Premier League matches on home soil. Now you stack that up against Newcastle’s away from and you can see there is some value in backing the home side. Newcastle have not drawn any of their last thirteen away matches, and they have lost three of their last four on the road in the Premier League. With the Magpies not firing on all cylinders yet it could be worth backing Everton to win by a 1 Goal margin for a price of 11/4 with online bookmaker Ladbrokes. Stat Attack: Everton have won eight and lost one of their last ten EPL home matches Everton have won six and lost one of the last nine against Newcastle at home Newcastle have lost three of their last four away matches Newcastle have conceded the joint-most penalties in the league since the start of last season Head to Head: These two generally trade wins for the season by taking advantage of the respective home fixture. Newcastle have only won on one of the last nine visits to Goodison in the Premier League, and that is a stat which speaks volumes. In last year's corresponding fixture near the end of the season, Everton cruised to a 3-1 win and with the sides just about at the same level as where they were for that meeting, then Everton should be able to grab three points. Online bookmaker promotion: Online bookmaker Ladbrokes have a great Money Back Special running for Everton v Newcastle betting. Belgian Marouane Fellaini is a beast in the centre of the park for Everton and if he scores the first or the last goal in the match on Monday, then Ladbrokes will refund any losing First Goalscorer bets. In that valuable market, Everton's Nikica Jelavic is trading as favourite at a price of 5/1, while Newcastle's due of Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba are at 7/1 and 9/1 respectively. Online bookmaker Ladbrokes offer a free ÂŁ50 bet for new customers who sign up and registering for an account using the special bonus code of FB50. Everton v Newcastle Betting Preview: The home side will be without Darren Gibson for a few matches, who picked up an injury while on international duty. That will leave a bit of a hole in the middle of the park for Everton, as Gibson provides a lot of consistency there in his role. But other than that, David Moyes has a strong squad to pick from and he will be wanting a response after watching his side fall to a 2-0 defeat away from home at the Hawthorns. The Toffees are generally solid at home and don't give many goals away. Everton have only conceded three goals in their last 12 home matches, which is a fantastic record. Having lost only one of the last nine against the Magpies at home, the Goodison faithful will be expecting to pick up three points out of this. That is because Newcastle haven't hit their stride yet. They don’t' seem to have much momentum and all of their matches this season have been tight ones. They scraped a win against Tottenham, were very flat in a defeat at Stamford Bridge and then could only manage a 1-1 draw at home against Aston Villa. Papiss Cisse who netted 13 goals in his first 12 league matches for the Magpies has now gone five matches without a goal. But the Magpies weren't good on the road towards the end of last season and they haven't started much brighter here. This is a really tough match for Newcastle and having lost three of their last four away matches, and vitally missing keeper Tim Krul for this one, along with defender Fabricio Coloccini, they are going to have to play with a bit of caution to battle a point of this one.  

Chelsea v Newcastle Betting Odds, Preview and Predictions

Cisse - Santon (Newcastle)
Chelsea V Newcastle A big showdown this weekend as the two unbeaten sides go head to head. Chelsea have already gotten two matches under their belt, having had to squeeze and extra match in during midweek. But the two clubs' 100% records are on the line at Stamford Bridge. This should be an entertaining match to come giving the line ups of the two sides Newcastle took a two nil win here last season and Chelsea's defence has not looked rock solid. Chelsea v Newcastle Betting Odds at online bookmaker Bet365: Chelsea 1/2, Draw 10/3, Newcastle 11/2 Verdict: Straight to the point, there could be an upset on the cards again here with the dangerous Newcastle attack turning up. A price of 7/2 for a Newcastle Draw No Bet at online bookmaker Bet365 on this one looks tremendous value. They are good enough for a draw. This is going on the basis that Chelsea haven't kept a clean sheet in their last five Premier League home matches, and both Man City and Reading have shown up their defensive frailties already this season. Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba terrorised the Blues defence last season and look sharp enough to do it again. Stat Attack:
  • Chelsea are without a clean sheet in their last five league matches at home
  • Chelsea have only won one of the last five meetings against Newcastle at Stamford Bridge
  • Newcastle won last season's corresponding fixture 2-0
  • Newcastle have lost two of their last three away matches in the Premier League
Head to Head: Chelsea have a good home record against Newcastle. Out of seventy five meetings between them at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have won 42 and lost just 12. However, we should turn to recent times here and see that Chelsea have won just one of the last five home matches against the Magpies in all competitions. So not great form and another reason to suggest that a draw may on the cards for Saturday. Online bookmaker promotion: Online bookmaker Blue Square have a great online betting promotion running for Chelsea v Newcastle betting. If the visiting Magpies win the game, then popular bookie Blue Square will refund losing First Goalscorer, Correct Score and Player Special bets. This is a great bit of coverage from the bookie, and in the First Goalscorer market you can look at options like Fernando Torres at 4/1 and Papiss Cisse out at 8/1. So great value around and in the Correct Score market for example, a 1-0 Chelsea win will fetch a nice price of 6/1. Chelsea v Newcastle Betting Preview: Chelsea have started the new season with back to back wins, taking out Wigan away from home in their opening fixture and then staging a comeback against Reading in midweek. The biggest impact on the new Chelsea season has been Eden Hazard who has already four assists (including two penalties) in his first two matches of the season. That provides a tremendous amount of hope for Chelsea as they try and build a new identity of attacking football. Not all the pieces are quite there yet and they continue to be linked with right back Azpilicueta as well as Edinson Cavani. The Blues have finally had a bid for Wigan's Victor Moses accepted, and the forward will add great pace and creativity into the side. So the future does look quite bright for Chelsea, but there are still issues at the back. The Blues can be defeated by pace and players running directly at them, that is just what Newcastle will bring to the table. So it is that unpredictability at the back which raises question marks over Chelsea and this is the best attack in the league season that they have come up against so far. Newcastle opened their season with a win against Spurs on home soil. They were second best to Spurs in the first half, but the Londoners were wasteful. After striking first though after half time, Spurs equalised by then a Ben Arfa penalty settled the three points for the Magpies. So a good start in a tough couple of first fixtures for them. This is a good test of their early mettle and they have the pace to cause Chelsea problems. The Magpies sent out an understrength side to face Atromitos in the Europa League play off on Thursday night, as obviously there are bigger fish to fry here. Chelsea's first teamers though have played two games in the past week, and will that tell? Newcastle of course finished above Chelsea in the league standings last year, and manager Alan Pardew will be hoping for a win which would at least pull them level on points with the Blues, with a game in hand this early into the season. They may need to start quicker than they did against Spurs though, because Tottenham could have gotten themselves into a comfortable lead if they had not been so wasteful.    

Chelsea v Newcastle Betting Odds, Tips and Preview – 02.05.12

Fernando Torres
Chelsea v Newcastle betting really needs to produce a result for the home side. The two are fighting it out, along with Spurs, for a fourth place finish in the table, and Chelsea are one point adrift of the Magpies and Tottenham. So this is going to be a crucial game for Di Matteo's men, if they are going to confirm a Champions League place for next season. Online bookmaker Bet365 will be covering the game with their fantastic 0-0 Bore Draw Money Back Special. The highly rated bookie offers lost stake refunds on losing pre-match Correct Score, Half Time/Full Time or Score-cast bets, if they end up losing because the game ends in a 0-0 draw. That result would probably just about suit Newcastle, although both sides need to take a win to realistically keep chances alive of a top four finish until the final day of the season. This coverage from Bet365 at least offers some insurance on your Chelsea v Newcastle betting, and the Blues have recently been held to 0-0 draws by both Tottenham and Arsenal. In the Correct Score market, Chelsea options are trading as favourite options with 2-0, 2-1 and 1-0 Correct Scores all trading at 7/1 with Bet365 in the market. So there is plenty of value in the market, as always, and this bet, along with any in the Half Time/Full Time or Score-cast markets will be covered by the Bet365 Bore Draw Special. Bet365 offer a free ÂŁ200 bet for new customers registering an account with them. The bookie will match the value of your initial deposit with a free bet, up to the maximum value of ÂŁ200. Chelsea v Newcastle Betting Odds at Bet365 Chelsea ½, Draw 10/3, Newcastle 11/2 Chelsea have home advantage for this crucial fourth place showdown, and they are also looking to do the double over the Magpies for the season. Chelsea ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, and heading into this one with just one defeat in their last eleven home matches, the Blues look in good shape. They have still only lost one game under Roberto Di Matteo, and the boss was surprised by the energy which Chelsea showed on the weekend against QPR. The Blues, fired along by a Fernando Torres hat-trick, ran riot over the R's with a 6-1 victory. Chelsea came storming out of the gates and because they had a patched up back line, the best form of defence, clearly was attack. Again, it was necessary for Di Matteo to shuffle his cards, with Jose Bosingwa stepping in as emergency cover at centre half. The Champions League finalists will again have to muster their energy up for another massive game, and they just keep on coming for Chelsea It has been a crazy fixture list for Di Matteo to handle, with the FA Cup, Champions League and Premier League all throwing tough challenges his way. But they have come through everything, just about. They have rode their luck. They have battled hard. They haven't played well at times, but they have been getting the jobs done. Is the big game mentality mode they are in going to be enough in Chelsea v Newcastle betting? The Blues are undefeated in the last five against Newcastle and they will be confident of leapfrogging the Magpies. Chelsea still have an away trip to Anfield to face Liverpool in the league, just a few days after next weekend's FA Cup final against the Reds. So how will the Chelsea players cope? Will their stamina last the course? Chelsea are averaging over two goals per game at home this season, and are undefeated in seven at Stamford Bridge. But Newcastle bring a big threat with them. Although Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba couldn't find the back of the net for the Magpies last weekend, as they crashed to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Wigan, Newcastle still carry a huge offensive threat. Chelsea's back line is struggling for fitness, and so the pace of the Newcastle forwards, backed up by the creativity of Cabaye and Ben Arfa, could cause the home side some problems. Newcastle had a six match winning streak snapped by that heavy defeat against Wigan, so they head into Chelsea v Newcastle betting, in need of a pick me up from boss Alan Pardew. Newcastle have been playing so exciting, powerful football of late, but how much will that Wigan defeat have dented their confidence? Their defence had looked pretty watertight up until the weekend, when they were terrorised by Victor Moses. So can Didier Drogba, or the in-form Fernando Torres (whoever gets the nod) be able to expose the same kind of weaknesses? Or will the pace of Pappis and Ba undo the tiring Chelsea back line? Alan Pardew immediately called for a response from his troops, but this is a tough fixture. The Magpies go as underdogs, having lost three and won two of their last five away matches.    

Premier League Top Four Finish Betting Odds

Chelsea Daniel Sturridge
With the Chelsea v Tottenham betting taking centre stage this weekend in the Premier League, it may be worth looking at the Top Four Finish Betting Market. There was a switch in positions in the week, as Arsenal leap-frogged Tottenham up into third place. Arsenal, after looking as if they were going to be struggling to book a top four spot, look favourites to make it, and now after six wins from six are a point clear and full of confidence. Arsenal are trading at not much value for 1/5 with Coral for a Top Four Finish. All of the momentum if very much with Arsenal for the end of season run in for a top four spot. The race for the fourth spot, the final place which will reward with some Champions League action next season could be close. Tottenham, who are sliding without a win in four ahead of the weekend, are currently five points ahead of Saturday's opponents Chelsea. This is why the London derby has huge significance, it could help clinch a Champions League spot. Either way you look at it, if Chelsea lose, there will an eight point gap between themselves and Spurs, and that will probably be too much of a gap to reel in for the Stamford Bridge crew. That is why Chelsea are 13/8 with BetVictor at the moment in the Top Four Finish market. However, a win for Chelsea on Saturday cuts the gap to just two points, and it will extend the win-less slump that Harry Redknapp's side are in. You talk about six-pointer matches, here is one of them. Chelsea have the toughest run in to the end of season out of the three contenders, with matches against Spurs, Arsenal, Newcastle and Liverpool to come. Tottenham's toughest remaining match will be this weekend against Chelsea. Tottenham, because they do have the ascendancy in points already, are 1/3 with SkyBet to make the top four. However, Chelsea back at 13/8 with Bet Victor would see their odds cut if they manage to take three points off Tottenham on Saturday. Will there be another shake up on Saturday? The outsiders in the market are Newcastle (33/1 at Bet365), who start the weekend a further two points back from Chelsea, which is seven points out of fourth. What could be the key to all this? The end of season run in. So here it is... Arsenal: Aston Villa H, QPR A, Man City H, Wolves A, Wigan H, Chelsea H, Stoke A, Norwich H, West Brom A Chelsea: Spurs H, Villa A, Wigan H, Fulham A, Newcastle H, Arsenal A, QPR H, Liverpool A, Blackburn H Tottenham Hotspur: Chelsea A, Swansea H, Sunderland A, Norwich H, Bolton A, QPR A, Blackburn H, Aston Villa A, Fulham H

Newcastle v Man Utd Betting Odds, Tips and Preview – 04.01.12

David de Gea (Manchester United)
We will see what the Red Devils have to offer up in their title challenge on Wednesday night, in Newcastle v Manchester United betting. Sir Alex Ferguson’s men suffered a huge loss at Old Trafford over New Year’s crashing badly against basement dwellers Blackburn Rovers. That was one of a few surprise results to ring the New Year in with, and with title rivals City also losing, Man Utd missed a huge chance to get one up on their neighbours at the summit of the league. So Manchester United will need to come up with a victory to keep up their title challenge for Sir Alex Ferguson. The biggest story this week, aside from the Blackburn defeat, was the club fine dished out to Wayne Rooney for putting in some lack luster training after a night on the town. That didn’t wash well for Ferguson, especially not with the disappointment of dropping three points at Old Trafford. So now they head to the north east to take on the Magpies, who are struggling for some form. So normally at this point many would be expecting a run of the mill, routine win for Manchester United, but what will the Blackburn defeat have rocked their confidence after such a strong run of form, or will it just have served as a wakeup call for them? You would think the latter really, as you don’t see United losing back to back matches very often. United this season are undefeated so far on their travels in the Premier League, winning seven and losing just two, so strong indications that they will at the very least grind something out. Newcastle’s season really has come unraveled since losing their first game of the season in mid November to Man City. They have amassed just one win since then in a run of eight matches, and with injury problems, boss Alan Pardew has to dig deep at the moment. Their only win in their last eight matches came against Bolton, but then they crashed again badly at Anfield on New Year’s Eve, taking the lead at Anfield against Liverpool, but then failing to hang on to that for more than five minutes, and eventually rolled over to a 3-1 defeat. When the Magpies hosted Man Utd earlier in the season, only back at the end of November, Alan Pardew’s men held out for a 1-1 draw, thanks to a Demba Ba spot kick. It is Demba Ba who is really carrying all the threat up front for the Magpies this season, banging in 14 goals and they will need a huge boost from him in getting at the United defence. Newcastle have only lost two matches at home this season, but they haven’t picked up a win there in their three matches now, and they have started to slide down the Premier League standings, and really need a big response. They built up enough points early in the season in their great run of form, to still be in a decent position though to attack the top six, if they can get string a few results together. There will be no bigger confidence booster for the home fans than seeing their side take down the Red Devils. With Newcastle leaking goals at the moment, and Manchester United in pretty strong goal scoring form, we can expect goals on Tyneside. Fortunately, Paddy Power’s festive period Money Back Special is running for this match as well, and if there are five or more goals scored in Newcastle v Man Utd betting, then the bookie will refund lost stakes on First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast singles which have been placed on the match. So plenty of great football betting coverage there to take on your betting. In the Newcastle v Manchester United First Goalscorer Market for example, Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez are at 4/1, with Demba Ba at 7/1. So plenty of value around and coverage to be had with Paddy Power’s Money Back Special. Highly popular online bookmaker Paddy Power offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account.

Liverpool vs Newcastle Betting Odds, Preview & Tips – 30.12.11

Andy Carroll (Liverpool)
Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Tip & Odds: There appears as if there will be a high possibility of a draw between these two sides on Friday night. However, because of Liverpool’s supremacy over Newcastle at Anfield, would look to that stat to guide you into an Asian Handicap bet here for a bit better value. Liverpool -1 Asian Handicap is priced at 21/20 at Bet365 which isn’t a bad shout at all. The Reds have won this fixture 3-0 for the last three times now. Another trend worth looking at is Dirk Kuyt as Anytime Goalscorer for 2/1 at SkyBet. Kuyt has scored in each of his last three matches against Newcastle now. Liverpool to win: 4/7 at Bet365 Draw: 10/3 at Boylesports Newcastle to win: 13/2 at Boylesports EPL Match Preview: Yes, it is Liverpool striker Andy Carroll meeting his former employers in the Premier League, but the match has far more interesting connotations than that side story. This will be a match between the sixth and seventh placed teams in the Premier League on Friday night, with Liverpool holding just a one point supremacy over Newcastle, so there are big points to play for. Both sides are still firmly in the fight for fourth and fifth in the league, so this is a crucial match for both sides. With Newcastle’s dip in form after their superb start to the season, the three points would be immense for them, pulling them ahead of the Anfield crew. Whereas Liverpool with a home win could put some good daylight between themselves and the Magpies. Neither side have been in tip top form though, with only one win between them in their last four matches combined. Liverpool have been giving very cheap points away at Anfield this season, while Newcastle’s defence has suddenly looked as if they have opened the floodgates. Will that be an invitation though for Andy Carroll to make an impact? With Luis Suarez out of Friday’s game, Liverpool really need their big money signing to find the kind of form which had when he was at Newcastle. Or will he be upstaged again by the fantastic form of Demba Ba? Liverpool Form: It hasn’t been red hot form from Liverpool as of late. With the pressures mounting on Luis Suarez, who is facing a lengthy ban after being found guilty of racial slurs against Manchester United’s Patrice Evra, the striker will miss Friday’s clash with Newcastle after receiving a one match ban for an obscene gesture in Liverpool’s defeat at Fulham at the start of December. With big money signing Andy Carroll not firing on all cylinders, it appears as if Liverpool are going to struggle for goals. While the Reds have not lost at Anfield this season, they have only won three of their nine matches there, drawing the other six. There have been some highly disappointing draws at Anfield this season, again down to a lack of firepower, with Norwich, Swansea and most recently Blackburn Rovers on Boxing Day, earning a point from there. Liverpool’s lack of goals is clear to see, as they haven’t managed more than one goal at Anfield in their last six league matches at Anfield. So Liverpool have just a 33% success rate at home this season, and have won just one of their last six home games. They have only failed to score on just one occasion at Anfield this season in the league, but their nine home matches have only produced eleven goals in total. What has been keeping their heads above water is that they have conceded on average, less than one goal per game at Anfield. But with a scoring record there of an average of just 1.22 per match, Liverpool have kept two clean sheets from their nine matches so far, and 78% of their home games have ended over 2.5 goals. In general, Liverpool have been pretty strong starters in their Premier League matches, their most profitable time in front of goal coming in the first fifteen minutes of matches, and they have only conceded four goals all season in the first half of their matches. The Reds have scored first in 61% of their matches this season. Luis Suarez is the club’s top scorer, but only has five to his name, and while there are five other players all on two goals each, there really hasn’t been any valuable contribution to speak of from Liverpool as an attacking force this season. With Steven Gerrard needing a little more time to get back into action to 100% capacity, if the Reds do lose Suarez then the further struggles which Liverpool may have are evident. But with two wins and two draws in their last four league matches, Liverpool are at least showing some kind of resiliency, largely at the back at in not conceding, however, they have had four pretty easy games, and now facing an out of form Newcastle, they really should have capitalized much more than they have. Time to shop for a striker in January for Kenny Dalglish? Newcastle Form: Well, it’s tough to jump on the bandwagon and say that the inevitable down turn in Newcastle United’s season was going to happen. After going unbeaten right up until mid November in the Premier League, Alan Pardew had Newcastle going along at a great clip, largely down to a fantastic defence which was built on consistency in picking the same four players match after match. It can be argued that Newcastle had an easy run up until mid November, when they faced Man City, Man Utd and then Chelsea in back to back matches. After losing their first match of the season against City, Newcastle bounced back with a point at Old Trafford, but then put in a limp display at home against Chelsea and it has been struggles since that 3-0 home defeat for the Magpies. After a run of six games without a win though, Newcastle picked up a streak breaking win at Bolton on Boxing Day and will be hoping that that will have been the start of a revival in fortunes for them. Newcastle’s away form reading four wins, three draws and two defeats on the season, the exact same record which they have at home. Those two defeats have come in their last three away matches, so there is some form to turn around. The Magpies though have scored in their last seven away matches, so they should at least be eying up a point away at Afield on Friday night. Newcastle have hit thirteen away goals, at an average of 1.44 goals per game, but they have conceded on average 1.22 goals per game away from home. They have managed clean sheets in 33% of their away fixtures. Newcastle have scored 60% of their league goals this season in the second half of matches, and they have conceded heavily in the fifteen minutes before half time in their games. Other than that they have managed, by large, to keep things pretty tight at the back. The Magpies have opened the scoring in 44% of their matches this season, and a lot of their good fortune has come down to the efforts of Demba Ba, who has netted 14 times this season. There hasn’t been any support for him, but his contribution, which includes eight away goals, has been crucial. Alan Pardew has said that the Magpies will actively search for a defender in the January transfer window and not go after a forward. This is largely down to Steven Taylor’s season being ended by an Achilles problem. Newcastle will be without Senegal international forward Ba for part of January, as the striker heads to the African Cup of Nations. Head to Head: Well, Liverpool should take some comfort from their good home form against Newcastle. Liverpool have won 53 matches out of 80 against Newcastle at Anfield, with the Magpies managing just twelve wins there. Liverpool have in total, scored more than double the amount of goals which Newcastle have in this fixture. Last season’s corresponding fixture ended in a 3-0 win for Liverpool, and if you like your trends, then all three of Newcastle’s last trips to Anfield have ended in 3-0 defeats. In fact, Newcastle haven’t managed a goal at Anfield in their last five trips there. Online Bookmaker Promotion: If there are five or more goals scored in this match, then online bookmaker Paddy Power will refund any losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score or Scorecast bets placed on the game. The bookie also offers a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account. Paddy Power will match the value of your first stake on a new account with a free bet up to the maximum value of £50.

Newcastle v Chelsea Betting – Money Back Special

Free Bets & Promotions
A massive match at the Sports Direct Arena on Saturday, as we look at Newcastle v Chelsea betting in the Premier League. It will be a highly emotional day with tributes to the departed Gary Speed rolling in, but getting down to business there are a big three points at stake. The Magpies, after a superb unbeaten run to the start of the season, suffered their first taste of defeat on a trip to Manchester City, but recovered with a point at Old Trafford last weekend. While they have been good in defence, up front, they have the scoring prowess of Demba Ba who has fired in nine league goals this season. The Magpies striker is on a great run of form, and will be hungry to get at the leaky Chelsea defence. Chelsea boss Andre Villas Boas is a man under pressure after a string of defeats has really seen Chelsea’s form dip after a solid start to the season. Chelsea are lacking confidence, but the young Portuguese manager needs to start turning things around quickly. It will be a difficult trip to the North East for them on Saturday with all the emotions going on up there, but it may be a good escape for them away from the extra pressures of playing at Stamford Bridge. This is fourth v fifth in the Premier League, with the Magpies in ascendancy over the Londoners by one point. So a big match ahead on Saturday, and Newcastle will be looking to that man Demba Ba to fire them to success on an emotional day.

Newcastle United vs Chelsea Betting Odds, Preview & Tips – 03.12.11

Premier League Betting
Newcastle United v Chelsea Betting Tip & Odds: Can see this one ending in a draw. Newcastle are just as likely to pinch a goal, as Chelsea are to get in front and then concede. What makes this game a little different is the atmosphere which is going to be prevalent on Saturday. We should see a fired up Newcastle but if Chelsea get on the score sheet early it could send the Magpies into distraction. Newcastle’s defence has proven its worth this season, and while Chelsea are the higher scoring of the two, it could all play out to some parity. Therefore, as three of the last four matches between these have been draws, going to look at a decent shout of Newcastle 0 Asian Handicap (equivalent of a Draw No Bet) for 8/5 at Bet365 Newcastle United to win: 11/4 at BetFred Draw: 5/2 at Totesport Chelsea to win: Evens at Bet365 EPL Match Preview: Well, it will no doubt be an emotional day at the Sports Direct Arena as Newcastle host Chelsea. This is the first game for Newcastle after the sudden death of ex player Gary Speed. Magpies boss Alan Pardew naturally wants a tribute three points at home on Saturday in honour of Speed, who played over 300 matches for the Magpies. So emotions will be running high and the atmosphere will be charged. Newcastle wrap up a run of three tough matches against Chelsea on Saturday, after having played Manchester City and Manchester in consecutive matches. Chelsea are still struggling badly for form, have fallen behind in the Barclays Premier League title race and their Champions League status hangs in the balance. A emotionally charged trip to Newcastle is probably one of the last things that under pressure boss Andre Villas Boas will want right now. Or will it be the perfect tonic for him to get away from the spotlight of the Stamford Bridge struggles and steal away with three points in some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable? Newcastle United Form: The Magpies are one point and one place ahead of Chelsea in the Premier League. Despite only picking up one point in their last two matches, Alan Pardew’s men are holding on to fourth place ahead of the London side. Newcastle have lost just once this season, and that was on a trip up to Manchester City two weekends ago. That ended their eleven match unbeaten run to the start of the season, and then it was off to Old Trafford to face United. After a dodgy penalty decision going their way, Newcastle were able to come away with a point, and while it never appeared against City, some of that heroic defending which has been prevalent all season, was back in force at Old Trafford. So, to their credit, the Magpies are still unbeaten at home in the league this season, rattling off four wins and two draws. They have won their last two matches there, beating Wigan and then Everton before meeting the two Manchester Clubs. The goal scoring hasn’t been particularly high for Newcastle this season, and that is why their defence has been key. The Magpies are averaging just 1.6 goals per match at home, but they are averaging only 0.8 goals against at home. So their defence has definitely propped up their attach. Two of their six home matches so far has yielded a clean sheet for Pardew’s men. Newcastle have spread their scoring out well this season, with no particular time period of matches behind their strongest point, but 58% of their goals have come in the second half. The Magpies have only scored first in 54% of their matches, which isn’t too high for a club near the summit of the Premier League. Demba Ba, who netted the equalising penalty kick at Old Trafford last weekend, leads the way with the scoring with 9 goals for Newcastle. They clearly need his input as he has produced almost half of all their league goals. While Newcastle clearly haven’t been as proficient in front of goal as the likes of Chelsea and Man City, they have scored at least one goal in each of their last nine matches, so they are good value to get on the score sheet against Chelsea’s leaky defence. Can their sturdy defence keep the Blues at bay and take a massive three points to get themselves back on track after a couple of very difficult matches? Chelsea Form: What a difficult match for Chelsea. Will they really want to win this one, or do so without guilt? While their form is bad, an away win at Newcastle on the day of Gary Speed tribute’s won’t make them the most liked team in the country. Still, there is business to be done and Chelsea boss Andre Villas Boas will desperately be seeking three points. The Blues have lost three of their last five Premier League matches, a shocking turn of form after a pretty solid start to the season. But that disruptive away defeat at QPR when they went down to nine men seems to really have rattled them. Subsequent defeats against Arsenal and Liverpool in the league, have come alongside a draw against Belgian underdogs Genk and then defeat against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League. Another defeat at home against Liverpool in the Carling Cup in the week didn’t help matters for Villas Boas either. The Blues are leaking goals all over the place and they don’t look likely to stop. Their performances against Liverpool have really been lack lustre and this is a problem for Villas Boas. Only young Daniel Sturridge out of the strikers are working. Fernando Torres looks as lost as ever, and Didier Drogba simply isn’t the force that he was. Chelsea need something to click and confidence would be a big help, as they are looking like a very nervous side. Out of their six away matches this season, only three have yielded wins for Chelsea, with one draw and two defeats on the road. They haven’t drawn in five matches on the road now. While they have defensive frailties, Chelsea have conceded six on the road (which is the second best away defensive record in the league) but have only scored nine themselves. Not good enough by any stretch of the imagination, and part of the reason they are ten points adrift of leaders Man City. So Chelsea are averaging 1.5 goals per match away from home, and they are conceding an average of 1 goal per match on the road. Not great, but they have managed two clean sheets away from home, while they have managed just one at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are stronger in the first half in scoring goals, but they just can’t put games to bed because they are not clinical and ruthless enough. Chelsea have opened the scoring in 61% of their matches so far. Frank Lampard and Daniel Sturridge are top scorers for the club, with six each and  John Terry has weighed in well with four of his own. After losing against Liverpool in the league, Chelsea did respond last weekend with a 3-0 home win, an easy win at that, over Wolves. Very unpredictable at the moment. Can Villas Boas, who insists that there isn’t a crisis, sort out his side? Head to Head: Out of 72 matches between these two at Newcastle, the Magpies have won 35 and lost just 19, so a pretty good home record. However, they haven’t beaten Chelsea in the last eight attempts in the league. The last time Newcastle picked up a league win was in the 2005/06 season at home, where they sneaked a 1-0 win. Last season this fixture produced a 1-1 draw, one of three draws in the last four meetings between the two sides.

Stoke v Newcastle Premier League Betting – Money Back Special

Free Bets & Promotions
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.
