Official online betting partner Coral brings you all the best odds ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League home clash against West Bromwich Albion...
Newcastle's home form is solid since the turn of the calendar year, taking four points and scoring five goals past high-flying Manchester United and West Ham United.
So the Magpies starting as 11/10 favourites is justified, even more so as they have only lost this fixture once in nine years.
Recent history of this game screams one thing - goals.
The last seven meetings between Newcastle and West Brom at St. James' Park have generated 26 goals - an average of 3.7 a match - with both teams scoring in all seven. So, both teams to score at evens looks nailed-on, and Coral are also offering 13/10 for over 2.5 goals.
United have won two of their last three meetings against Albion by a 2-1 scoreline. A repeat pays 8/1 in the correct score market.
Seydou Doumbia didn't make an appearance in Wednesday's defeat at Everton, but could feature on Saturday.
The Ivory Coast international striker has scored an impressive 77 goals in his last 69 starts for CSKA Moscow and Roma, so the 6/1 on offer in the first goalscorer market could be a bargain. You will also get 7/4 for Doumbia to score anytime.
Elsewhere, leading scorer Georginio Wijnaldum remains in decent form, notching against Manchester United and West Ham recently. Coral quote the Dutchman at 11/2 to score first, or 6/4 to score anytime.
For a bumper pay-out you can double-up and back Doumbia to strike first in a 2-1 win (in a scorecast bet) at 30/1. Wijnaldum and 2-1 scorecast also pays 30/1.
