Kick Off: 1330, 13/08/2017
Stadium: St James’ Park
TV: Sky Sports
The Toon army will be out in force when Newcastle return to Premier League action by hosting Tottenham and we’re backing the Magpies to get a positive result from this game.
United did the double over Spurs when last in the top flight a couple of seasons ago, including a 5-1 thrashing at St James’ Park.
With a red-hot atmosphere assured, we like 21/20 for the hosts to win or draw in our Newcastle vs Tottenham betting predictions.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle finished with three straight wins to pip Brighton to the Championship title, beating Barnsley 3-0 at this venue on a thrilling last day.
Rafael Benitez was hoping to be given more money to spend over the summer, although Florian Lejeune, Javier Manquillo, Jacob Murphy and Mikel Merino will provide decent strength in depth.
Keeping Chelsea midfielder Christian Atsu on a permanent basis after his successful loan spell takes the investment past £31million, adding to last season’s arrivals, such as Matt Ritchie, Isaac Hayden and Dwight Gayle.
“When I decided to stay, I was expecting another thing, but I decided to stay because of a lot of positive things I could see, starting with the fans,” commented Benitez after Sunday’s 2-0 friendly victory over Hellas Verona.
“I will try to do my best to be sure that the team we have will be good enough to compete and stay as high as we can in the Premier League.”
United bagged 85 Championship goals last season and 23/10 they net more than once here is included in our Newcastle vs Tottenham betting tips.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham signed off last season with a trio of cracking victories, beating Manchester United 2-1 in the final game at White Hart Lane and then scoring 13 goals at Leicester and Hull.
Redeveloping that famous old ground may be one reason why Mauricio Pochettino hasn’t splashed the cash brought in from the sale of Kyle Walker to Manchester City, though.
Pre-season results have been mixed, with wins over PSG and Juventus obviously impressing, but conceding six times in losses to Roma and City raises concerns.
Spurs were run ragged by the Blues in Nashville and we haven’t forgotten that they failed to win on the road at West Brom, Bournemouth, Sunderland and West Ham last term.
Looking at the Newcastle vs Tottenham odds, 27/2 for a 2-2 draw is worth a speculative punt.
