Newcastle vs Tottenham | Wednesday 15th July 2020, 18:00 | BT Sport
I will keep this one short…
Newcastle are excellent value here at 3/1 in the Draw No Bet market. Since lockdown, the Magpies may have lost their last two matches but they came against Manchester City and and Watford, with the latter aided by a couple of penalties, at least one of which were very questionable. Prior to that Steve Bruce’s side had won two and drawn two and have generally looked a lot more accomplished than they did pre-COVID.
Spurs guaranteed bragging rights with a victory over Arsenal at the weekend but in my mind that simply papered over the cracks. They do have some excellent attacking players, but they do look poor at the back to me and they have been far from impressive since the Premier League returned.
Spurs were fortunate to get a draw against a Bournemouth side on an horrendous run themselves and pretty dire against Sheffield United and Everton, even if they managed to win that one.
At 3/1 with BetVictor I therefore believe that Newcastle are worth a few pennies. Additionally, given that Newcastle have scored in five of their last six matches (also conceding in four of them) I really like the look of the 10/11 with Bet365 on both sides obliging here.
