Just like the best rollercoasters, Newcastle have provided their fans with some impressive highs and rather dark lows during Alan Pardew’s tenure. Now, it seems the grey haired boss is cranking the car slowly up the tracks to another apex after four wins in a row.
That 12/5 glimmers like an emerald in the sun for Magpies backers considering Swansea have bettered just one of their last 11 visitors to the Welsh coast.
Admittedly, Newcastle aren’t renowned for being the best of backpackers, winning five of their last 26 Premier League trips but should be sided with over the hosts on the back of some impressive recent form that includes wins over Chelsea and Tottenham and just two goals conceded.
The French loanee is his temporary club’s top scorer, finding the back the back eight times this season and opening the scoring with half of them.
If any player in black and white is going to score they’ll likely be French, as 18 of the club’s 19 goals in the league have been from across the Channel. One who is in particular scoring touch is Yoann Gouffran, who has bagged three in four and is 3/1 to score anytime.
Or, for a more specific angle to your BT Sport-based betting, how about the 10/11 on there being a goal scored between the 75th minute and the full-time whistle?
The odds-on price is no surprise given that these two have previous for bagging in the final 15 minutes, with three of the four goals scored between the pair coming in that time frame.
