Newcastle v Tottenham betting tips and odds
Steve Bruce has been given a stay of execution as he prepares to lead Newcastle against Tottenham on Sunday for his 1,000th game in management for what should be a party atmosphere at St James’ Park.
Bruce was expected to leave the club following Newcastle’s takeover by a Saudi-led consortium this week but the Geordie will be in the dug-out for the clash with Tottenham, who are the 11/10 favourites.
Newcastle were 5/6 to go down last week but with the club set to splash the cash during the next transfer window, their relegation odds have risen to 13/8.
Frank Lampard is now the new favourite to take over the reins but Bruce holds the aces for now as we look at the odds in our Newcastle v Tottenham betting tips.
Newcastle’s controversial takeover has lifted the gloom on Tyneside, with supporters unanimously glad to see the back of previous owner Mike Ashley.
The Magpies are second from bottom and one of four teams yet to win this season but they have drawn three of their last five games and the points were split in both matches between the sides last season.
A share of the spoils is 5/2 and goals with that option is available at 16/5 which was the case in both of last season’s games.

Despite not winning this season, Newcastle are inside the top 10 for first-half performances with two wins and three draws but they tend to fade after the break, losing five times.

There have been goals at both ends in this fixture in the last three seasons so both teams to score, at least three goals and either team to win is available at 11/8 while a goal in either half and the match to be drawn is 5/1.
Spurs’ South American quartet Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez, Emerson Royal and Giovani Lo Celso were either playing or on the bench in World Cup qualifying in the early hours of Friday, so they will be touch and go for the game at St James’ Park.
