Match Result: All Markets
Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change
Newcastle have failed to hit the net in 4 of their last 5 home games and that stat is enough to put me off the odds on quotes for a home win. It’s very early days to judge Swansea under new management which doesn’t make life any easier when it comes to nailing up a selection.
This could go horribly wrong but I’ll take a speculative poke at under 1.5 goals.
Bet: Total goals, under 1.5 at 17/10
