Newcastle United vs Tottenham Hotspur – Predictions & Football Betting Tips
Newcastle United start their Premier League 2018-19 campaign with a home match against Tottenham on Saturday. Newcastle finished in the 10th place last season and the club are looking to break into the top 10 for the first time since 2011-12. Spurs have been on an incredible streak of three consecutive top-three finishes, but the club are yet to make any signing in this transfer window. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Newcastle start the campaign after suffering back-to-back defeats in friendly matches. They have raised question marks of Rafa Benitez, but the Spaniard has been able to make several influential signings in the summer.
Mauricio Pochettino is yet to build on the squad from last season and there is a significant danger of the team losing Toby Alderweireld with just a few days left in the transfer window.
The recent meeting between Spurs and Newcastle produced a 1-0 win for Tottenham at Wembley. The London outfit were also able to pick up a 2-0 victory in their last trip to the St James’ Park. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Tottenham and Newcastle are priced at 2.05 and 3.40 respectively. Even though both are quite attractive prices, we do not expect such an outcome in this match. Newcastle are a formidable team at St James’ Park and the opening day of the campaign does not provide any negativities surrounding the team. Spurs have been able to pick up victories in past visits to this ground, but the uncertainty surrounding some key players like Toby Alderweireld may end up causing a slipup. Our preview would go with a draw, which is rather attractively priced.

Tottenham win odds: 2.05
Newcastle United win odds: 3.40
Correct Score odds
Newcastle have made substantial additions to the squad in the summer transfer window while Spurs are in a polar opposite situation. However, Tottenham continue to have a strong offence with the likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, and Dele Alli following the spearhead. In the past, matches between Newcastle and Spurs at the St James’ Park have been close encounters. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been plenty of games between Spurs and Newcastle to produce over 2.5 goals – including the meeting in May 2016 that finished as a 5-1 victory for Newcastle. However, this is a game that is likely to witness two teams in a confident mood. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Harry Kane’s record against Newcastle is not as impressive as against other teams, but he did score a goal in his recent appearance against the Geordies. After winning the World Cup Golden Boot award, Harry Kane will be looking to snatch the same in the Premier League. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Kane.
