Tip Newcastle Tottenham
on 13 August 2017
Newcastle United host Tottenham in the premier league this Sunday and both teams will be looking to start their season with a morale boosting win. Newcastle won their last meeting against Spurs 5-1 and the away side will be looking to avenge that. Meanwhile, Spurs will be desperate to challenge for the title this season after missing out narrowly in the last two seasons. This will be a vital game for both teams as a winning start could make a major difference for either side. This should be a fierce contest on the pitch as well as on the touchline. Both Benitez and Pochettino are fantastic tacticians and they will be looking to get one over the other this week.
Our bet explained
- Spurs have lost only two of their last six visits to Newcastle. They have won two of their last three trips to the north-east.
- Tottenham have won 12 of their last 13 matches (Premier League).
- Tottenham have scored at least 2 goals in 11 of their last 13 matches (Premier League).
- Tottenham have been winning at both half time and full time in their last 3 matches (Premier League).
Our Newcastle Tottenham tip
Both teams will be desperate for a winning start and this should be a close contest. Spurs are the better team on paper, but they have a lot of injuries to deal with. Newcastle will be motivated for their first home game of the season and will look to get something out of this one. However, Newcastle are quite porous at the back and will struggle to keep out the likes of Kane. An away win seems likely.
