Tottenham Form & Team News


Tottenham have had a strong start to their Premier League campaign. They won their opening game of the season 3-1 at home against Aston Villa and then secured a 2-2 draw away at Manchester City last weekend. 

Harry Kane has got himself on the scoresheet twice already this season, grabbing the two late winners against Aston Villa on the opening day. Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura got on the scoresheet at The Etihad. Moura's position in the team will be under threat with Son now being cleared of his suspension. 

Spurs will have one eye on their game against Arsenal the following week and their team selection will probably reflect that. Jan Vertonghen may be given some time on the pitch if the North London club want to have him back to fitness against Arsenal. 

Spurs are currently valued at 1.20 with bet365 for the win. This presents punters with little very value. There is value to be found in the handicap market, where Spurs are at 2.60 with a -2 handicap. 

Newcastle Form & Team News 


Newcastle have had a tough start to life under Steve Bruce. The Toon were defeated 1-0 by Arsenal on the opening day and were then comfortably beaten 3-1 away at Norwich last weekend. Jonjo Shelvey grabbed a 93rd-minute consolation for the club. 

They have struggled to find any sort of consistency away from home. They have only won two away games in 2019 and one of them came against a Fulham side that had already been relegated. They have lost three of their last four games in the Premier League and have conceded seven goals in those defeats. 

Newcastle will likely field a similar side to the one that were defeated away at Norwich next weekend, with Steve Bruce facing no fresh injury worries at St James' park. 

Newcastle are valued out at 14.00 to pick up the victory, which shows how far behind the club are right now. A draw is valued at 6.5 but nothing about Newcastle's current suggestion suggests that this is likely.

Tottenham vs Newcastle Analysis - Comfortable win for Spurs 


Spurs have looked strong in their opening two games and earned an impressive point in what is arguably the toughest game in the Premier League away at Man City. 

Pochettino's men have won seven of their last ten games at home, losing only one of those encounters and drawing two. They have settled into their new home seamlessly and look to have picked up where they left off in terms of goals.

Newcastle have only grabbed one goal so far and despite bringing in club-record signing Joelinton from Hoffenheim, they have not made much of a nuisance of themselves in front of goal. 

Tottenham vs Newcastle Tips - Over 2.5 Goals and a Tottenham Win


Tottenham have far too much quality against a poor Newcastle side. This is reflecting in the fact that they are priced at 1.20 to win the match. A better value bet would be to bet on them to win with a -2 handicap at 2.60 with bet365. 

Newcastle conceded three goals against a weak Norwich side last weekend so Spurs should be able to grab more than that. Spurs have seen over 3.5 goals in their first two games of the season, so a bet on over 2.5 feels like a safe option at 1.53. 

Verdict

Tottenham have made a strong start to the season and should have no trouble seeing off a struggling Newcastle side. 

Handicap Bet: Tottenham -2 @ 2.60 at bet365 - 2 Units
Value Bet: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.53 at bet365 - 2 Units
Correct Score Bet: Tottenham 3-0 @ 8.00 at bet365 - 1 Unit
