Newcastle United V Reading (19/01/13)

My Tips For The Toon V Reading

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.

On current form you would have to say that's it's probably wise to be cautious when betting on The Toon at the moment, but here are my tips for The Toon V Reading... 

Match Result:
20 points on Newcastle at 1.73
Despite being second bottom Reading have recently turned things around slightly with two victories from their last three league matches.  However, they remain without an away league victory this season and have lost 9 of their 11 away league matches so they obviously don't travel well.  Despite our own poor recent form therefore you have to fancy us for the victory at odds of 1.73.

Winning Margin:
20 points on Newcastle By Exactly 1 Goal at 3.75
Four of our five home league wins have been by a one goal margin, so this seems like a decent bet.

Team Total Goals:
Urban Industry Winter Sale20 points on Newcastle To Score Exactly 1 Goal at 3.1
4 of our last 7 league matches have seen us score exactly 1 goal and on the showing against Norwich a low goal scoring total would seem like a safe prediction.

Team Bets:
20 points on Newcastle To Keep A Clean Sheet at 2.63
Reading have managed only one goal from their last five away matches in the league.

Correct Score:
20 points on Newcastle To Win 1-0 at 8.5

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

25 points on Aston Villa or Draw at 2.1

Swansea V Stoke - Match Result:

Tottenham V Man United - Match Result & Both Teams To Score:
