Newcastle United V Southampton (24/02/13)

My Tips For The Toon V Southampton

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.

Due to the uncertainty about the strength of team we'll put out against Metalist Kharkiv on Thursday, I'm therefore going to skip our Europa League game and make my next set of tips for the Southampton game on Sunday...

Match Result:
30 points on Newcastle at 2.0
Southampton go into this game in decent form having recently beaten Man City and only lost one of their last nine league games (to Man United).  Our recent form hasn't been too bad either though, so odds of evens for us to win seems like a fair bet. 

Winning Margin:
10 points on Newcastle By Exactly One Goal at 3.75
6 of our 7 league victories this season have been by a one goal margin, so taking into account Southampton's respectable form of late I'm going to go for a small bet on a narrow one goal victory for the Toon.

Draw No Bet: 
20 points on Newcastle at 1.44
Southampton have been involved in a lot of tight games recently, drawing six of their last nine league games, so I'm going to back up my main bet with a dabble in the Draw No Bet market.

Both Teams To Score:
20 points on Both Teams To Score - Yes at 1.62
Both teams go into this fixture in reasonably consistent goal-scoring form.  We've scored in 12 of our last 13 league matches, while Southampton aren't far behind having only failed to score in one of their last nine league matches.

1st Team To Score:
20 points on Newcastle at 1.73
We've scored first in 6 of our last 9 league games.

My general football tips have returned a profit for five consecutive weeks now, so let's see if I can make that six weeks with hopefully another set of profitable tips...

Reading V Wigan - Match Result:

25 points on Reading at 2.4

Norwich V Everton - Match Result:
15 points on Draw at 3.4

Manchester City V Chelsea - Match result:
15 points on Draw at 3.5

West Ham V Tottenham - Match Result:
25 points on Tottenham at 2.15

Doncaster V Yeovil - Match Result:

20 points on Yeovil at 3.0

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