Arsenal V Newcastle United (29/12/12)

My Tips For Arsenal V The Toon

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 perform and analyse whether it's better to bet with your heart or your head.

The defeat at Man U was hard to take, and I have to say it reinforced how much I really dislike Alex Ferguson and particularly the way he constantly puts pressure on referees with his persistent verbally aggressive moaning and complaining.  I'd personally like to see referees encouraged to give interviews after matches so they can highlight occasions when managers are totally out or order and also mock managers who are apparently clueless of the rules of football (as in Alex Ferguson's case).

Anyway, here are my tips for Arsenal V The Toon... 

Team Total Goals:
30 points on Newcastle To Score Exactly 1 Goal at 2.5
We've scored one goal in 4 of our last 6 league games.

Team Bets:
20 points on Both Teams To Score In 2nd Half at 3.25
5 of our last 8 league matches have seen both teams score in the second half.

Both Teams To Score:
20 points on Both Teams To Score - Yes at 1.73

10 points on Demba Ba to score in 90 minutes at 3.0 
Despite his recent comments in the French press, Demba has continued to produce the goods with 11 league goals from 19 appearances this season.

To Win Either Half:
20 points on Newcastle To Win Either Half at 3.25
Arsenal have been on a decent run recently having won their last three league games, but overall this season they've been an inconsistent side, so if we can repeat the performance we showed against Man U then this could be a reasonable bet.

And to see if it's wiser to bet with your head or your heart, here are my general football tips...

Norwich V Man City - Double Chance:
25 points on Norwich Or Draw at 2.38

Man U V West Brom - Match Result & Both Teams To Score:
20 points on Man U To Win And Both Teams To Score at 2.75

Everton V Chelsea - Match Result:
20 points on Draw at 3.3

QPR V Liverpool - Match Result:
15 points on Draw at 3.4

Bristol City V Peterborough - Match Result:
20 points on Peterborough at 3.0

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