Sunderland v Newcastle Match Preview and Betting Tips


Sunderland v Newcastle Betting Tips and Predictions

Sunday sees the first encounter between Sunderland and Newcastle this season with the Toon Army seeking revenge for last year’s 3-0 defeat.

It’s obvious to everyone Sunderland haven’t been at the races this year. Gus Puyet’s men have just one point and they have now lost six in a row. They have also lost every home game so far this season. Newcastle are in ok form with three wins in their last six but their best form has come on the road this season. They have lost to Man City and Everton but beaten Villa and Cardiff, Sunderland are a lot closer to the latter so I can see Newcastle getting a good win on their rivals here. Newcastle to win is 13/8 with Betfred.

To go with this, Loic Remy has five goals in his last four games for Newcastle including three in his last two appearances on the road. So if you fancy the Toon to win, get on Remy to score and Newcastle to win, which has been priceboosted to 7/2 with William Hill.

All the stats seem to point to over 2.5 goals here, but I don’t fancy it. Derbies are usually tight affairs and both teams will be determined not to concede early on and seven of the last ten meetings between these two have seen under 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals is available at Evens with Coral.

Finally, a good price for us seems to be Yohan Cabaye to score anytime at 9/2 with Bet365. He scored in last year’s encounter at the Stadium of Light and he has scored in two of his last three games from midfield, as he continues to repay Newcastle for his summer flirtation with Arsenal.
