Premier League Betting Tips Today

Tyneside is all abuzz as the takeover from a Saudi led consortium has been completed. Newcastle are now flush with cash and major ambition but they still have plenty of work to do this season to make sure they are still around in the Premier League next year to continue their plans.

There may be excitement aplenty in Newcastle right now but they still have a tough task of trying to get points off a strong Spurs side on Sunday. The excitement levels may be just enough to light a fire under  this current Newcastle squad as they will no doubt be fighting for their places in the team come the summer.

The current constitution

Newcastle desperate for first win

While the future may look bright, it’s the present that Newcastle needs to invest their energy into. They have yet to pick up a win in the league as of yet, as they have limped to 3 draws and 4 losses in their 7 games so far. It’s been a torrid start to the season for the Geordies as they have lacked any real threat going forward. Allan Saint-Maximin will need to provide a spark on Sunday if Newcastle are to have any real shot at taking home all 3 points. Our Premier League predictions for this Newcastle side on Sunday don’t hold out much hope for anything more than a draw at best.

Spurs still trying to get going

Spurs will still be reeling from their 3-1 humbling by bitter North London rivals Arsenal. A game like that can very often curtail a season entirely for either side. However, to Spurs’ credit, they have bounced back with a win in the Europa Conference League and a win in the Premier League over Aston Villa. It has provided much needed respite for under-fire manager Nuno Espirito Santo. Our Premier League predictions weekend has Spurs pegged as favorites for this one, even if their star man Harry Kane has been misfiring this season.

Head to Head

Newcastle have never really been able to establish a run of wins against Spurs over the years. In fact, they have had little to no joy against the North London side barring a few draws and the odd win over the years. Our Premier League predictions today are certainly backing the side from North London as they will be looking to add yet another win against Newcastle under their belt.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Our Premier League predictions for this one are pretty straightforward. We really can’t look past anything but a Spurs win here. There is certainly a buzz around Newcastle right now but the squad itself is still mediocre and on a poor run of form. You might want to take a stab at a draw but in all honesty, you would be fairly safe going for a Tottenham win here.

Spurs to get one over on the Magpies

We are excited to see how this Newcastle team evolves over the coming season with a much, much bigger budget to play with. However, for now there is little to like about this squad. They lack energy and they lack a killer instinct in the final third of the pitch. They will need to dig deep on Sunday if they are to try and take anything from this fixture.

With that being said, this Spurs team is not exactly firing on all cylinders right now. There may be a glimmer of hope for the Toon Army, albeit a faint one. Our Premier League tips betting are backing Spurs in this fixture, as the Magpies just don’t have enough firepower.
