A massive game in the race for a ‘top four’ finish on Sunday in the Premier League as Newcastle and Spurs, who are both right in the thick of things face off at St James’ Park.

At the start of play Spurs have 53 points, with Newcastle 56 but having played a game less.

The match betting ahead of the games sees the homes side as favourites at 5/6, with the draw at 11/4 and Spurs on offer at 16/5.

They meet earlier this season at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – a game that ended 1-2 to Newcastle.

This repeat fixture last season ended in a thriller too, with Newcastle losing 2-3 to Spurs – a repeat of that can be backed at 40/1.

It’s normally a game with plenty of goals too – 5 of the last 6 meetings saw Over 2.5 Goals, which can be backed at 4/5, while both teams scored in the last 6 clashes. This is on the table at ¾.

We also saw a red card last season in this match – that went to Newcastle – you can back a sending off in the game (either side) at 5/1.

The scoring markets sees Newcastle’s Callum Wilson at 4/1 (1st) or 7/5 (anytime), but with Spurs’ Harry Kane netting 4 goals in his last 4 matches against the Magpies, then the England man is sure to be popular again at 5/1 (1st) or 15/8 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game that will have a huge bearing on the top four race, but it’s a hard one to call. Therefore, the safer option looks to be to stick with both teams to score at 3/4 – a bet that’s paid out in the last 6 meetings.
