Newcastle United host Wigan Athletic on Monday night in Premier League action, with the hosts looking to get their season back on track.

The Magpies have lost as many home games this season as they did in the whole of last term, so they will be hoping to make amends against a Wigan side who are struggling away from home.

The omens look good, as Newcastle have won ten out of 12 home matches against bottom six teams, scoring first in 11 out those 12 such games.

By contrast, the Latics have lost four of their past five away matches, scoring just twice. In addition, Newcastle haven't lost to Wigan in their last four home meetings since the 2007/08 season.

So, Newcastle look good value at 2.08.

It may be worth taking a small interest in half-time draw/full-time Newcastle at 5.7 as Wigan have been goalless at half-time in eight consecutive away fixtures.

Newcastle's strikers hold the advantage when looking for a first scorer bet as when the Magpies score at home, it is the first goal of the game 75 per cent of the time.

Papiss Cisse is 6.0 to score first, having found the net last week at Stoke. Five of the Senegalese striker's 15 league goals for Newcastle have come following a goal in the previous game.

Elsewhere, Demba Ba is 5.5 to score first, with Shola Ameobi 8.0.
