Newcastle v Bordeaux: Thursday: ESPN 20:05
Bordeaux, who face Newcastle at St James’s Park, have won nine of their last ten European matches, so it’s something of a surprise to see them quoted at 23/10 (BetVictor.com) to register another victory this evening.
Home advantage accounts for bet365’s 5/4 price posted about Newcastle winning – generous enough considering that they have won 15 and drawn two of their last 17 home European encounters.
Given each side’s impressive recent European form, there could be merit in taking Stan James’s 12/5 price posted against the draw. Alternatively, bet365 rate the chances of it ending as a score draw at 10/3.
In other markets, William Hill offers 11/5 against the game’s opening goal arriving inside the first 15 minutes, while BetVictor.com dangle a particularly enticing scorecast bet, chalking 28/1 against Demba Ba scoring in a 1-0 Newcastle victory.
