Happy New Year to everyone, what better way to start 2024 than with an iconic Premier League fixture?

Those of a certain vintage will remember only too well two classic 4-3 epics between Liverpool and Newcastle and whilst we might not see seven goals shared tonight it should be an entertaining encounter.

The Magpies will hope the new year brings a change fortunes, especially on the road. They’ve won just once away from home, an 8-0 thumping of bottom side Sheffield United so no surprise to see them as big as 11/2 away to the league leaders.

Arsenal’s defeat at Fulham means the Reds start the year at the top of the tree and a win today would take them three points clear of the chasing pack.

Klopp’s men have lost just once in 30 Premier League games (W19 D10 L1) and remain unbeaten at Anfield this term.

They look a solid bet at 9/20 and with the Magpies currently experience some serious travel sickness it could be comfortable win for the Red half of Merseyside.

It’s 6/5 that Liverpool score three or more and when you consider that in December Newcastle lost three at Everton and four at Spurs that could be worth a play.

    Liverpool v Newcastle
    Under 2.5 goals at 21/10
    Expect Eddie Howe will set his team up defensively and try and use his teams pace on the counter, Liverpool will probably have to be patient they are a team in transition with a brand new midfield so still have a lot to learn. Liverpool haven’t been as free flowing as recent years but as stated they are a team in transition so to sit at the top of the table a with a brand new midfield is pretty impressive stuff, the numbers don’t lie. If and when Liverpool get going then they will be a force to be reckoned with but right now their weakness is breaking down defensive teams. With all things considered and the fact Newcastle can’t afford to lose anymore games then a defensive display is inevitable which will probably bring in the unders.
    Prediction 2-0

    • maccathered 2 months ago

      Just to add to this b365 have an offer on, place £10 pre match and get £5 free bet for every goal scored in the game. Call me a cynic but aren’t the bookies usually on the right side with these offers!

    • evens knievens 2 months ago

      The typical punter will just think back to some of the classic encounters over the years (and there has been some classics to be fair).
      I will wait for the team news but two bets I like the look of on Betfair are the following.

      Anthony Gordon to score or be shown a card. 2.4
      Darwin Nunez to score or assist. 1.8

      As an ex Everton lad, I suspect Gordon to be going for it and for the same reason he can expect some needle and could be likely to retaliate.

      Gordon to be fouled 3 times at 2.75 might be worth consideration too.

      Think you’re right about Newcastle being cautious but if Liverpool were to break them down before half time, they will have to throw caution to the wind and suddenly that Bet365 offer might seem kind of generous.

    • HarryB 2 months ago

      Not your fault. On paper they should be winning that comfortably. Personally I find lower leagues to be rather unpredictable on the WDW market which is why I usually stick to goals down there.

    Happy New Year to all. Some great winners on the site yesterday and well done to those who tipped Fulham. Two bets from me today and I’m going with two my favourite markets No btts and the 2-3 goal band.

    Football ⚽️ National League AFC Fylde vs Rochdale

    🌟 Tip – BTTS No 13/8 Bet365

    Rochdale have secured wins in 5 of their last 10 matches. While their strong goal scoring displays played a significant role in their form, recent defensive displays are noteworthy. Keeping clean sheets in 2 of their last 3 matches, betting on BTTS No is a good value bet against a side they should beat.

    Football ⚽️ League 1 Shrewsbury vs Fleetwood town

    🌟 Tip – 2-3 goal band 1/1 Betway

    Fleetwood have had a tough time on recent away trips, conceding three or more goals in 4 of their last 5 matches. Interestingly, both teams have fallen into the 2-3 goal band in 4 of their last 5 games.

    Good luck with your bets today!

    Evening gents,

    Hope the New Year celebrations were long-lived last night and the hangovers are clearing by now – all the best for 2024 ☘️🍻


    Not sure we’ll see the goals we once did in this encounter and thinking corners and cards could well be the way to go…

    (11/10, bet365) NAP ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    (15/8, bet365) NB ⭐️⭐️

    And for a speculative shout in case goals do arrive…

    (8/1, bet365) LONGSHOT ⭐️

    Best of luck with all bets/hangovers 😂

  21. ChrisBax 2 months ago

    Today’s “bookies taking the píss” entry:

    Paddy Power: “Place a £5 whatoddspaddy bet on darts and get a free £5 bet if there’s a 9 darter (i.e. 9 dart finish) in that session”

    Having done some Googling, since darts competions were televised in 1984, there have ONLY been approx 88 9 dart finishes in televised darts competitions worldwide.

    Yep. In FORTY years, just 88 televised nine-darters – roughly 2 per year! And if it does happen, you only get a maximum £5 free bet 🤣

    Happy Days. Put £10 bet builder on under 2 fhg’s and Darwin Nunez to score or assist.

    Returned £32.50 and £25 in free bets.

    My Betfair bet lost though on Gordon to score or be booked but it was only £5 and they were giving a free £5 bet for putting on a bet builder. Result.
