Betting partner 138.com brings Magpies fans the best odds ahead of Wednesday's game with Manchester City
Newcastle United play host to Manchester City on Wednesday night in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup (7.45pm kick-off).
And betting partner 138.com brings the Magpies fans the best odds ahead of the fixture.
Newcastle are entering the game off of the back of a Tyne-Wear derby defeat, but spirits will be high when the team walk out at St. James' Park, as they attempt to topple the giants that are Manchester City.
The Citizens suffered an agonising last-minute defeat at the hands of Chelsea at the weekend, with Joe Hart the villian once again. City have scored more goals than anyone in the top-flight, 21, but have also conceded 11 in nine games.
The Magpies were convincing 2-0 winners against Championship side Leeds in the last round thanks to goals from Papiss Cisse and Yoan Gouffran.
The last time these two sides faced each other in a cup competition was in the 2002 FA Cup. Newcastle won that game 1-0, asa a goal from Peruvian fans' favourite Nolberto Solano seperated them.
Newcastle to win: 7/2
The Draw: 11/4
Man City to win: 4/6
There have been 18 goals scored in the last five matches between the two sides, including the 4-0 win for City on the opening day of this season.
Both Teams to Score or Over/Under markets look appealing. In the last six games between the clubs, five of them have ended in over 3.5 goals being scored.
Both Teams to Score: 4/7
Over 3.5 goals: 11/8
Newcastle have been slow starters at St. James' Park recently but this could be addressed, and the Magpies may come flying out of the traps.
Loic Remy to Score First & Newcastle to win 2-1: 66/1
Loic Remy: 7/1
Papiss Cisse: 8/1
Shola Ameobi: 9/1
Yoan Gouffran: 10/1
Hatem Ben Arfa: 11/1
Yohan Cabaye: 12/1
