Tottenham open up Sunday’s mouth-watering, Premier League triple-header as they host Newcastle and despite lacking cutting edge in the goalless stalemate against Everton last time out, Spurs can justify the 4/7 favouritism afforded to them by BetVictor.
The Magpies (11/2, Stan James) are a tough team to predict, as demonstrated by their last two league results – a loss at Sunderland and a victory over Chelsea – but they’re set to be up against it at White Hart Lane, where Winner.com price the hosts at 12/5 to edge it by one.
Nevertheless, Alan Pardew’s charges have failed to find the net only once in their last eleven outings so it seems likely that they’ll get on the scoresheet in this one. Boylesports’ even money for both teams to score isn’t without appeal then and more specifically, BetVictor mark 8/1 against Tottenham finishing on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline.
In attack meanwhile, Roberto Soldado is bet365′s 9/2 favourite to break the deadlock but the hosts are struggling to provide service to the Spaniard with their current system and instead it might be worth going for Andros Townsend at the bigger price of 9/1 (bet365) as the winger isn’t afraid to cut inside and unleash a shot.
