Expert Betting Tips
Newcastle United are showing low-class football this season, Steve Bruce is not a team’s manager anymore. Next game will be played with Graeme Jones, who was appointed as the team's head coach caretaker. The Magpies have the worst defensive record in this stage of the campaign - 19 conceded goals in 8 games. Both clubs will be desperate to break their runs without a positive result. That’s why I expect another high-scoring football in Newcastle United’s game. I suggest betting on the following markets.
- TO 2.5 goals for 1.90;
- BTTS - yes for 1.85;
- W1 for 1.90.
