Hull v Newcastle: Magpies emerge from goal avalanche

| 30.01.2015

Two out-of-form sides collide at the KC Stadium, with both parties craving points for contrasting reasons.

Hull have strapped a rocket to a toboggan and are jetting down the icy slopes of the Premier League straight into the Championship.

Currently in 18th, a 13/8-rated victory would almost certainly see them catapulted out of the bottom three this weekend.

However, Newcastle boss John Carver will undoubtedly have other ideas, as he bids to prove he is in the very least a semi-competent helmsman who deserves the Toon job beyond the end of the current campaign.

Snapping a five-game losing streak on the road with a win at 7/4 wouldn’t hurt his cause, while an 11/5 draw wouldn’t be awful from their perspective either.

Given the woeful run both are enduring, we concede that picking a winner isn’t easy.

There’s an easier path to profit on this one, however, simply select one of the three best bets outlined below.

Newcastle win or draw @ 9/20

Not exactly the biggest price, but it’s a bet that’s sure to land.

Since Hull first garnered Premier League status in 2008, this fixture has been contested seven times across all competitions and the travelling team has never been beaten.

Over 3.5 goals @ 29/10

For the misers bemoaning the low margin of the previous punt, here’s a more working-man’s price to mull over.

Three successive Hull v Newcastle dust ups have crossed the goal line in question, while the Magpies have seen at least four registered in three of their previous five away days.

Both teams to score @ 19/20

Given the high-scoring nature of this fixture, this one has free money written all over it.

The Toon have leaked 14 in five away matches and their best defensive performance across their last three road trips in the league is conceding two.

Prior to a bout of three home matches without a goal that preceded their 2-0 win over Everton last time out, Steve Bruce’s side had failed to bag once in eight at base camp.
