Gabby Agbonlahor has netted 51 times for Aston Villa – but not once against Newcastle. The speedy striker was recently crowned Villa’s player of the month for August after bagging early season goals and this makes him a good bet to score first at 6/1.
Other potential Villa scorers include skipper Stiliyan Petrov who struck a wonder goal against Everton last week and is 20/1 to score last in this fixture. England international Darren Bent is evens to score on Saturday but has started the season slowly by his own high standards, with just one goal so far. He may therefore be one to avoid, particularly given the short price.
Former Geordie Charles N’Zogbia scored twice against the north-east outfit playing for Wigan last October. A price of 25/2 for the Frenchman to repeat this feat at Villa Park is available, meaning new customers who use their £25 free bet on this outcome would win £337.50 if it proved successful.
However, with the Magpies having only conceded once in the top flight so far this term and Villa still coming to terms with the losses of Ashley Young and Stewart Downing during the summer transfer window, it could be there are no goals at all.
Backing no goalscorer at odds of 15/2 means punters who use their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com can expect a £212 payback on this result.
For the Geordies, leading scorer Leon Best looks the most likely to find the back of the net. He can be backed at 9/4 to score at Villa Park and to add to his tally this season.
An outside choice for a Newcastle goal is defender Ryan Taylor, who has two stunning free-kicks under his belt this season and is 11/2 to score this weekend.
