Newcastle United V Man U (07/10/12)

My Tips For The Toon V Man U

Every match I give myself 100 points to place a few hypothetical bets on Newcastle and 100 points to place a few general football bets using the odds available from  I then compare how the two sets of bets performed and analyse whether it's better to bet with your heart or your head.  These are my predictions for this weekend...

Bets on Newcastle...
Full Time Result:
30 points on Draw at 3.7
Howard Webb has been appointed as the ref for Sunday's game so it'll be an even tougher game than usual as we'll be up against twelve men.  However, Webb was the ref in the corresponding fixture last season and although he did deny us a penalty when Ferdinand fouled Ba, we still won 3-0.  Back to this season, our league form so far has seen us play out three draws from six games, so given the opposition I'm therefore going to downgrade my usual optimism and go for another draw on Sunday.

First Goalscorer:
15 points on Demba Ba at 8.0
Demba has been in impressive goal-scoring form so far this season and hopefully this will continue on Sunday.

Half With Most Goals:
35 points on First Half at 3.1
I can see us coming out all guns blazing on Sunday which could mean an open first half and therefore the odds of 3.1 for more goals in the first half look worth a punt.

Double Chance:
20 points on Newcastle or Draw at 1.9

And to see how my predictions compare, here are a few tips on some of the other games being played over the weekend...

West Brom V QPR - Full Time Result:
20 points on West Brom at 1.91

Wigan V Everton - Full Time Result
20 points on Everton at 2.0

Liverpool V Stoke - Double Chance
20 points on Stoke or Draw at 2.7

Tottenham V Aston Villa - Asian Handicap
20 points on Aston Villa +1.25 at 1.82

Ipswich V Cardiff - Full Time Result
20 points on Cardiff at 2.4

I'll check back after the weekend to see how well my tips performed.
