Newcastle United vs Tottenham Hotspur

, KO: 12:30 Apr 13, 2024, St James' Park
Tottenham Hotspur

NEWCASTLE UNITED will set out to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to four matches when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at St James' Park on Saturday lunchtime.

Eddie Howe's side were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton last midweek but they bounced back by edging out Fulham 1-0 at Craven Cottage just four days later.

That victory means the Magpies are occupying eighth spot in the table and very much in contention to for a top six finish.

Back at their North East headquarters this weekend, Newcastle will look to put another three points on the board when Tottenham come to town.

Ange Postecoglou's side took control of the Premier League's top four race with a 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest last Sunday, bringing up two of our man Kevin Mac's picks in the process.

With Spurs getting this weekend's top-flight action underway on Saturday lunchtime, they will look to tighten their grip on a much-coveted Champions League spot by securing three points at St James' Park.

Outright Betting

Newcastle United, who have avoided defeat in their last five Premier League home games, are 7/4 outsiders on Betfred.

Tottenham Hotspur have drawn three of their last five top-flight road matches and the same outcome here can be backed at 3/1 (William Hill) while the visitors are 7/5 (UniBet) favourites to emerge victorious.

Betting Angles

This game looks to have all the necessary ingredients for an action-packed contest so I'm going to head to the Bet Builder and bundle up Bruno Guimarães To Commit a foul, Both Teams to Receive a Card and Both Teams to Hit 3+ Corners at 4/5 (Bet 365).

Newcastle's Bruno Guimarães has never been one to shy away from a tackle and that is evidenced by the fact that he has racked up a colossal 14 yellow cards across all competitions this season so far.

That bone-crunching amount of bookings coincides with the fact that the Brazilian midfield warrior is averaging 1.3 fouls per-game in the Premier League this season, committing at least one in his last four outings.

It therefore wouldn't come as a surprise to see Guimarães go into the book here at 12/5 (Bet 365), however for the second leg of the Bet Builder, I'll instead go with both teams to be carded by referee Tim Robinson.

Both sides are averaging north of two yellow cards per 90 in the Premier League this season, with Newcastle being more prolific for cards at home, as is the case for Tottenham on their travels.

With plenty of goalmouth action anticipated, I'll wrap up the Bet Builder with each team to earn a minimum of three corners.

Hosts Newcastle are averaging 4.58 corners per-game in the Premier League this season, a tally that rises to 5.25 when going about their business at their Tyneside base.

As for Tottenham, they attack with plenty of intensity under Ange Postecoglou and that is reflected by the fact that their flag-kick per 90 average in the Premier League currently sits at 6.10.

With all that in mind, as well as the fact that this Bet Builder would have paid out in December's reverse fixture between the duo, supporting the same formula at St James' Park on Saturday seems like a sensible solution at 4/5 (Bet 365).

Elsewhere, the 11/10 on offer with Bet 365 for Newcastle Lewis Hall to commit just one foul during this contest looks too big to ignore.

Whilst the young Magpies left-back didn't commit a foul in either of his last two starts against Everton and Fulham, he can expect a tougher test on Saturday against attack-minded Tottenham.

This match between Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur will be played on Apr 13, 2024 and kick off at 12:30. Check below for our tipsters best Newcastle United vs Tottenham Hotspur prediction. You may also visit our dedicated betting previews section for the most up to date previews.
