Newcastle United play host to West Ham United this Sunday at St. James' Park, with the Magpies the favourites at 2.06, and the Hammers out at 4.0.

The omens look good for the home side, as Newcastle have won 14 out of 24 home matches since the start of last season and have only been beaten by the top two this term. In addition, the Magpies have won five out of their last six matches against midtable sides.

By contrast, West Ham have lost two of their four away matches this season and this will be their first away trip to a current top half side. In addition, promoted teams have lost 64 per cent of away matches against top half sides since 2007/08.

Newcastle look good value at 2.06, and Half Time/Full Time Newcastle/Newcastle is also worth an interest at 3.35. Newcastle have had eight half-time/ full-time doubles in their last 20 home games, the third best record in the league behind the two Manchester clubs.

Demba Ba is joint favourite to score first with Papiss Cisse at 5.5. But Cisse as last goalscorer at 5.5 is also worth a punt, as he has done so in five out of 13 home games.
