Betting Tips for the game
Tottenham were able to get a comeback home victory over Watford, who lost 2-1 at the Wembley Stadium. This was only the second victory in the last five matches for Spurs, who have lost the other three games during this period.
Newcastle were able to bring about one of the biggest shocks of this season by beating Manchester City 2-1 at home. This was the third victory in four games for the Magpies.
The reverse game between these two teams ended up as a 2-1 victory for Tottenham, who were also able to claim a narrow 1-0 victory when these two teams last met each other at the Wembley Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a success for Tottenham.

Newcastle are in a period of sunshine with the team picking up a positive set of results of late. The team has also been able to break the club transfer record with the signing of Hugo Almiron, who can be a significant creative force within the team that has averaged less than a goal per game so far. However, Spurs possess a strong home record over Newcastle, who have been very poor when it comes to travelling to London. Our preview would pick a victory for Spurs, who may be able to edge the encounter despite missing some players.

Tottenham vs Newcastle draw odds: 4.50
Newcastle win odds: 8.00
Correct Score odds
Tottenham have been struggling for goals in the absence of players like Dele Alli and Harry Kane, who have managed 19 league goals combined this season. Newcastle are also defensively sound with the team having one of the best defensive records in the bottom half of the table. This will be a close encounter just like the meeting at this ground last season. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Spurs 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Tottenham have been unable to keep a clean sheet in any of the last five matches. This follows a streak of clean sheets for Mauricio Pochettino’s team, who have several doubts about themselves. The presence of new players at Newcastle along with the return of nine goals in the last four matches will provide confidence for the visitors. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Fernando Llorente suddenly finds himself with a string of first-team opportunities and goals to his name. The injury to Harry Kane has been a blessing for the Spaniard, who was a forgotten man at Spurs. Llorente has been able to grab goals against Crystal Palace and Watford – two in his last three matches. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Fernando Llorente.
