Hull and Newcastle boosted for wins with goals at both ends
Hull and Newcastle are granted tape snipping-duties on gameweek 23 of Premier League action and Ladbrokes customers could be the ones standing proudly next to an oversized cheque if one of two price boosts on the match comes in.
It is time to choose your weapon based on the evidence gathered below:
In five previous Premier League meetings between the Tigers and the Magpies neither team has managed to keep a clean sheet, while 19 goals have been netted in total.
Heartening stuff for both these boosts’ chances it must be said. Less conducive to Hull landing punters a payday is the run of three defeats, without scoring, prior to Newcastle’s visit.
However all those losses arrived on the road, while Everton – the last visitors to the KC Stadium – were soundly beaten 2-0.
Steve Bruce is also able to recall top scorer Nikica Jelavic to his squad after a lay-off which is a massive plus for the Tigers, especially as the Croatian bagged against Everton and in the return fixture with Newcastle which finished 2-2.
The manager-less Magpies are in a similar rut results wise, though their last performance at home to Southampton was out of the draw marked ‘encouraging’.
That 2-1 loss could easily have been a draw if it wasn’t for some wastefulness in front of goal and the vast majority of the travelling squad will have very fond memories of last season’s trip to Humberside.
Newcastle ran out 4-1 winners on that occasion with Moussa Sissoko helping himself to a brace at Hull’s expense.
