Bet on Newcastle vs Liverpool – Goals expected on Tyneside
Gone are the days when Newcastle United and Liverpool competed in seven goal thrillers as they hunted the Premier League leaders, but seven goal thrillers may be back on the agenda.
While St James’s Park may not be the fortress is was last season for Newcastle when they went unbeaten in the Championship, the Magpies have averaged two goals a game there this season.
Newcastle are 11/4 to beat Liverpool on Saturday which seems fair considering they have only won three times in the last 10 meetings between the two sides at St James’ Park.
Having won only one of their last seven games at St James Park, the Toon Army may be willing to settle for a point against Liverpool and the draw is priced at 12/5.
Liverpool, having won just four games on the road in 2010, offer no value at 1/1 to win and while Roy Hodgson finally seems to be seeing some resemblance of a side under his management, Liverpool’s away record doesn’t make good reading for the Kop.
But with 14 goals in their last four meetings with Newcastle, Liverpool certainly know how to find the back of the net against the Geordies and the Toon Army could be in for an eventful game.
Roy Hodgson will certainly be hopeful of seeing this trend continue as his side have managed just five goals in their eight away games, and because of Liverpool’s poor away scoring form, over 3.5 goals offers good value at 21/10.
A 2-2 draw is priced at 14/1 but a 3-1 win for Newcastle is available at 28/1 and Andy Carroll can cause plenty of problems to an average Liverpool defence.
Carroll is 6/4 to score anytime but Carroll to score first and Newcastle to win 3-1 is priced at an incredible 100/1.
A £10 stake on Liverpool winning 3-0 would return £190. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
