Newcastle United V West Ham (11/11/12)

My Tips For The Toon V West Ham

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 SkyBet.com.  I then compare how the two sets of bets perform and analyse whether it's better to bet with your heart or your head.

The uncertainty over team selection in Europe means that once again I'm steering clear of Thursday's Europa League match against Bruges and instead making predictions for the West Ham match on Sunday...

Full Time Result:
20 points on Newcastle at 2.0
West Ham have only managed two victories in their last seven league games (against bottom two clubs Southampton and QPR) so odds of evens for the Newcastle victory are generous enough to tempt me into a 20 point bet.

Both Teams To Score:
30 points on Both Teams To Score - Yes at 1.57
Although we've scored in seven of our last eight league games, we've also conceded in each of our five previous league games, so even at odds as short as 1.57, a bet on both teams to score still looks like a decent bet.

Half Time Result:
20 points on Newcastle at 2.5
We've started games well in recent matches and have been leading at half time in each of our previous three league games, so on current form you have to fancy us in the Half Time Result market.

Draw No Bet:
20 points on Newcastle at 1.44
Despite my overall optimism, the fact remains that we've drawn half our league games so far this season, so a small saver bet in the Draw No Bet market is worth considering.

Winning Margin:
10 points on Newcastle To Win By Exactly One Goal at 3.75
Each of our three league victories this season has been by one goal so this would seem to be the bet to go for in the Winning Margin market.

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

Chelsea V Liverpool - Full Time Result:
30 points on Chelsea at 1.91

Reading V Norwich - Full Time Result:
15 points on Draw at 3.4

Stoke V QPR - Full Time Result:
15 points on Draw at 3.4

Man City V Tottenham - Full Time Result:
10 points on Tottenham at 5.5

Middlesbrough V Sheff Wed - Full Time Result:
30 points on Middlesbrough at 1.83

I've done quite well with both sets of tips in recent weeks (although my Newcastle tips have had a slight edge), so I'll check back after the weekend to see if I can continue my form.
