Back The Boys Against West Ham With 138.com

Betting partner 138.com brings Magpies fans the best odds ahead of Saturday's home game against West Ham

Newcastle United entertain West Ham United on Saturday (3pm kick-off) in their first home game of the 2013/14 Barclays Premier League season.

And betting partner 138.com brings Magpies fans the best odds ahead of the fixture:



Match Odds

After a disappointing outing in their opening Premier League fixture on Monday night at Manchester City, Newcastle have the chance to put that result to bed in front of their own fans.

St. James' Park will be rocking for the Magpies' first home game of the campaign and they face a West Ham team coming off the back of a solid 2-0 home win against new boys Cardiff City last time out.

Andy Carroll, fresh from his £15 million move from Liverpool to the Hammers, will face a late fitness test on a foot injury, as he and George McCartney are the visitors' only injury doubts.

Newcastle will be without the suspended Steven Taylor, who was sent off at the Etihad Stadium on Monday.

Newcastle: 21/20

The Draw: 23/10

West Ham: 12/5


Expect the Unexpected

This fixture has brought up some random scorelines of late, and nothing in the history book points towards a definitive result.

Last season, former Newcastle skipper Kevin Nolan stunned the home fans and gave the Hammers a 1-0 victory on Tyneside.

Two years previous, Nolan was on the scoresheet for the Magpies in a magnificent 5-0 drubbing over West Ham at St James' Park.

Back in 2008/09 Craig Bellamy, another former Magpie, helped West Ham earn a point in a 2-2 draw.

Both Teams to Score: 4/6

Match Handicap: Newcastle -1: 7/1

Newcastle To Win Both Halves: 11/2


Value Bet

First goalscorer, Sylvain Marveaux: 14/1



Papiss Cisse to score first & Newcastle to win 3-1: 45/1


First Goalscorer

Papiss Cisse: 5/1

Shola Ameobi: 10/1

Hatem Ben Arfa: 15/2

Moussa Sissoko: 10/1
