Tottenham v Newcastle: Spurs to keep heat up on top two
Amidst mass speculation regarding the future of their manager Harry Redknapp, Tottenham can respond in the best possible way by justifying their 1/2 price in the Premier League odds to beat Newcastle.
The visitors will be no pushovers however, continuing to astound fans and pundits alike with a surge up the table that sees them comfortably sitting in a European spot approaching the latter stages of the campaign.
For this reason, it is somewhat of a surprise to see them at a big 6/1 to score an away win here, to add to their five victories on the road so far this term, though it should be noted they will be missing influential playmaker Yohan Cabaye through suspension.
It is 13/5 that the highly entertaining sides play out a draw at White Hart Lane.
Perhaps the only performances and results that rival that of Newcastle, in terms of their expectancy and consistency, are those from Tottenham and Redknapp’s men will be eager to add to their nine home wins from 12 games, during which they jhve scored 24 goals.
A Tottenham win with two or fewer goals scored in the match is 3/1, but a more attractive bet may be a Spurs triumph with more than three goals going in, which is priced at 11/10.
10/11 for both teams to score in the match looks nailed on considering the attacking threats that both sides possess in abundance, and a wide array of first goalscorer options will be on show to tempt punters.
Papiss Demba Cisse made his Newcastle debut last week, coming off the bench to score the winner against Aston Villa, and the Senegalese striker is 9/1 to notch first or last in this game too.
Strike partner Demba Ba is an obvious danger, and he is 8/1 to add to his 16 goals for the campaign with the first here too.
The home side meanwhile, will hope that Emmanuel Adebayor can end his goal drought with the opener at 7/2, while Louis Saha will want to impress on his home debut, and is 9/2 to strike first or last.
