Goals guaranteed as entertainers tussle on Tyneside

Eddie Howe’s Newcastle have yet to be feted as entertainers in the same way as their Kevin-Keegan inspired 90s forebears but they’re becoming a go-to side for overs backers nonetheless.

The Magpies top the Premier League table for involvement in matches featuring over 3.5 goals (14 of their 24 league games) and over 4.5 goals (8 of 24). Their last six EPL games have all rewarded over 3.5 goals backers, yet that eventuality is trading at odds of 23/20 for the visit of Bournemouth.

Andoni Iraola’s men are great dance partners for an over 3.5 goals bet. Eight of the Cherries 12 away league games this term have landed the odds for over 3.5 goals backers, as have four of their past five road games in all competitions.

Tip: Newcastle vs Bournemouth – over 3.5 goals @ 23/20

Chelsea wildcards can land in a blow in inevitable City victory

Manchester City hitting merciless form after Christmas has become so inevitable that it already feels like a cliche. Pep Guardiola’s men have won their last 10 in all competitions ahead of their clash with a Chelsea side that held them 4-4 at Stamford Bridge in November.

They’re 8/11 to beat the Blues at the Etihad but given the fireworks of their previous encounter the 6/4 about a City win and both teams to score looks worth chancing.

Chelsea are in improved form on the road of late, having registered consecutive 3-1 away wins to snap a miserable streak of six losses in seven outings beyond the confines of Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have now scored away against every EPL top seven club they’ve faced so far this season (Tottenham, Newcastle, Manchester United, Liverpool and Aston Villa).

Tip: Man City to beat Chelsea & both teams to score @ 6/4

Draw the value in clash of sides that have forgotten how to win

Nottingham Forest must be a frustrating side to support this season. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have won only five games in normal time across all competitions, yet they’ve beaten Chelsea, Aston Villa, Newcastle and Manchester United.

A team that wins so rarely is no win-bet proposition at 13/10 even when their visitors are a West Ham outfit without a victory in seven games and fresh from a 6-0 home humbling against Arsenal.

The draw has plenty of appeal at 5/2 though. Five of Forest’s last eight outings in all competitions have been level at the end of normal time (two FA Cup replays among them), while they lost the other three by a single goal margin. The Irons too have lost four of their last seven.

Tip: Nottingham Forest vs West Ham – draw @ 5/2
