Our recommended bet for Saturday’s clash at St. James’ Park comes in the form of a Newcastle United victory over Leeds United, with Miguel Almiron as the game’s opening goalscorer.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £95 with Betway.
A Newcastle United outfit continuing to defy the odds in the upper echelons of the Premier League table are set to act as hosts at St. James’ Park on Saturday, December 31st.
Their upcoming opponents? A Leeds United side in the thick of the battle against relegation.
Newcastle, of course, are currently reaping the benefits of a scintillating stretch of form.
All told, dating back to the middle of October, Eddie Howe’s men have racked up no fewer than eight wins on the trot.
The latest of these came in their return to competitive action on the back of the World Cup break earlier this week, when the Magpies made altogether short work of Leicester City.
First-half goals on the part of all of Chris Wood, Miguel Almiron and Joelinton ensured that Newcastle, upon the final whistle sounding at the King Power Stadium, emerged on the right side of a 3-0 scoreline.
The Geordie club, as a result, remain in the dizzying heights of 3rd in the English top-flight.
Safe to say, then, that Newcastle will no doubt be confident in their chances of making it six successive league victories come the full-time whistle on Tyneside this weekend.
This comes with their upcoming opponents having endured an altogether more trying time of things of late.
Leeds, as alluded to above, currently sit 15th in the Premier League table, just two points clear of the relegation zone.
This comes with the Whites, after looking as though they had turned a corner courtesy of back-to-back wins over Liverpool and Bournemouth, having since slipped to defeat in successive outings.
The latest, in their post-World Cup return to action earlier this week, saw Jesse Marsch’s troops prove no match for champions Manchester City.
And we at 101 envision a similar scenario playing out on Saturday evening, backing Newcastle to make short work of Leeds at St. James’ Park.
