Newcastle v West Brom: Over 3.5 in teatime treat on Tyneside
This early evening kick-off between Newcastle and West Brom promises to be a crackerjack of a game if past meetings on Tyneside are anything to go by.
We’ve already mentioned on this site that the recent history of this fixture is absolutely chock-a-block with goals and that punters should take Ladbrokes up on their 8/11 offering for both sides to find then net for starters.
Backing this outcome would have landed in no fewer than the last 11 renewals between the clubs either home or away.
To expand on that theory further, the over 2.5 goals route would have paid out in every one of the Baggies’ last eight trips to Tyneside, giving rise to the slightly modest price of 17/20 on this happening again.
The 21/10 on over 3.5 goals being scored is far more appealing, especially as this too would have landed in three of the last four occasions West Brom made the trip and in six of the last eight meetings between the sides all told.
Furthermore, West Brom and Newcastle have been firing in their respective Premier League fixtures heading into this.
Steve Clarke’s visitors have scored exactly twice in their last three and Alan Pardew’s team fall just a goal shy of that tally – while hitting the net exactly twice in their last four at home.
If however, the match odds are the only ones which float your boat, then it may be better to side with the Geordies at 1/1.
Newcastle are on a serious roll having won three on the spin, including two at St James’ Park and in Loic Remy they have a man wearing laser-guided boots at present.
Backing a ninth Premier League goal in nine games for Remy, as part of a home win at 11/5 looks pretty tasty too.
