But Newcastle continue to impress across all competitions this season, even in the face of the league’s longest injury list which has begun to take its toll on their squad. However, a disappointing 3-0 away defeat to Everton on Thursday put a slight blip on their progress and Howe will be hoping his side get back on track against Spurs.

Tottenham vs Newcastle best bet

  • Pick: Over 3.5 goals scored
  • Odds: +130 (DraftKings)

When Tottenham and Newcastle have faced off in the Premier League, their matches have witnessed plenty of goals. 

That’s because each of the last seven meetings in England’s top-flight have seen both sides score, with Tottenham netting 16 times and Newcastle 15 in the process. That averages out to 4.43 goals per match making the over 3.5 goals scored selection at +130 with DraftKings a very enticing offer. 

Additionally, there’s a few more stats from Opta that can back up giving that bet a punt here. They say that amongst the 41 Premier League fixtures to have been played 50+ times in the competition’s history, Tottenham vs Newcastle has averaged more goals than any other (3.16). 

There’s also the added incentive that over competition history, only Arsenal vs Tottenham (88) and Liverpool vs Newcastle (87) has seen more first half goals netted than Tottenham vs Newcastle (86). 

Tottenham vs Newcastle flier bet

  • Pick: Kieran Trippier to score anytime
  • Odds: +1000 (DraftKings)

Although he’s not scored across 21 first team appearances for Newcastle so far this season, Kieran Trippier currently has odds of +1000 to score anytime at the weekend with DraftKings and at that value, we just can’t ignore it. 

There’s a two-pronged approach to picking him here, the fact that he’s facing his former side and normally players score against their past employers, plus there’s the huge adage of Trippier’s fantastic free-kick technique. 

That saw him rattle the bar in his side’s 1-0 win over Manchester United last weekend, whilst his last four Premier League strikes have all come via direct free-kicks, including one for Spurs prior to his move to Atletico Madrid. 

If you’re feeling extra tempted, DraftKings are offering him to score first here at a huge +2500.
