Sunday’s Premier League action provides a betting tip in the Newcastle v Fulham clash. The Magpies are precariously placed, sitting just three points above the drop zone. Their home fixtures have been their best source of points, so can they secure a much needed win against Fulham?
Match: Newcastle v Fulham
Betting tip: Fulham +0.5 Asian Handicap
Best Odds: 1.97 with Pinnacle
Kick Off: 15:00 07/04/2013 (GMT)
Newcastle’s Europa League involvement may allow Fulham to take advantage on Sunday, just as the Cottagers did when they won at Tottenham in mid-March. The Magpies are not blessed with a huge squad, and the rotation system they managed to employ in the early stages of the tournament is no longer an option. Goal scorer Cisse, and key midfielders Cabaye and Sissoko all played 90 minutes on Thursday evening in Portugal versus Benfica. Debuchy and Tiote remain sidelined and the hosts look vulnerable at even money. The home team have lost four of the last six, and five of the last ten at home. Fulham are in a strong vein of form, losing just two of the last ten – and those two losses were against Manchester United and Manchester City. Historical trends also favour the visitors – Newcastle have only prevailed once in the last seven meetings overall, and Fulham’s record in their last seven trips to Newcastle reads won 3, drawn 2, lost 2.
