The Toon V Man City: Tips Round-Up

My Tips For Newcastle United V Manchester City: Round-Up

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.

Unfortunately, a second half header by Demba Ba wasn't enough to inspire us to a result, despite a battling second half performance.  Hopefully if we can repeat that performance again next week though (and preferably for 90 minutes), then you would expect us to beat QPR.

Demba Ba's goal meant a profit for my Toon tips and my general football tips also made a profit this week.  This is the breakdown of how my tips performed...

Match Result: 
30 points on Draw at 3.8 - LOSS
There was a spell in the second half when it looked like we might be able to get something from the match, but unfortunately Yaya Toure's goal in the 78th minute killed off any hope of a comeback.

Team Total Goals: 
20 points on Newcastle To Score Exactly 1 Goal at 2.5 - WIN 50 points
We've now 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 - WIN 65 points
For the 4th time on our last 6 league matches, both teams got on the score sheet in the second half.

First Goalscorer:

10 points on Demba Ba at 7.5 - LOSS 

To Score In 90 Minutes: 
20 points on Demba Ba at 3.0 - WIN 60 points
Demba has now scored 6 goals in his last 7 league appearances at St James Park.

Making an overall return of 175 points from 100 points and therefore an overall profit of 75 points.

My run of seven consecutive profitable weeks for my general football tips came to an end last week, so I was pleased to get back to winning ways again this week as my tips recorded a small profit... 

Norwich V Wigan - Match Result:
25 points on Norwich at 2.1 - WIN 53 points

Tottenham V Swansea - Double Chance:
25 points on Swansea or Draw at 2.25 - LOSS

Stoke V Everton - Match Result:
20 points on Draw at 3.3 - WIN 66 points

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

Dundee United V Inverness CT - Match Result:
15 points on Inverness CT at 3.4 - LOSS 

Making an overall return of 119 points from 100 points and therefore an overall profit of 19 points.

The head to head running totals between my two sets of tips currently stand at:

Newcastle tips – 6.5
General football tips – 7.5

With tough away games to Man United and Arsenal coming up over the Christmas period, next weekend's match against QPR is vital, and I'll be making my next set of tips on Wednesday.
