Both teams to score is best bet when Newcastle host West Brom

| 28.11.2013

The Sky Sports cameras drop in on St James’ Park to witness a tussle between a Newcastle side bang in form and a West Brom outfit who’ve already accounted for Manchester United and very nearly Chelsea away from the Hawthorns this season.

Those tuning in for the teatime entertainment should be in for a treat too, as this fixture has a particularly rich history of goals over the last decade.

April 22nd 2006 was the last date upon which either the Baggies or the Magpies failed to hit the net against one another, which takes in 11 games home and away.

Therefore, punters would have to take leave of their senses not to get behind the 3/4 on offer from Ladbrokes that both teams register again here.

Three wins from their last three league games – which includes victories over both Chelsea and Tottenham – have elevated Newcastle to eighth at this point and must have Toon fans dreaming of Europe once more.

The goals have been arriving fairly freely too, with the last four top-flight home games for Newcastle seeing them score exactly twice.

Backing another 2-3 Geordie goals against Steve Clarke’s visitors is set at an enticing 11/8.

Meanwhile, the last six St James’ Park encounters between the black and white and blue and white-striped foes have all gone north of the 2.5 goals mark.

Getting behind this eventuality once again pays out 19/20, though the fact that three of the last five in the north east have also broken the 3.5 goals barrier, the 9/4 on this happening again is perhaps more appealing.
