Newcastle lost over the weekend in an exciting derby match which saw me take all the spoils as I had a bet on Sunderland. It was, however, a very spirited performance which we've seen from them in the past 3 games. They lost unluckily to an unstoppable Richardson free kick, and had many chances of their own which they failed to convert. I feel that a return to St. James Park will spur on an even better performance, and the return of Jonas Gutierrez will aid them in attack, which has been surprisingly good with a resurgent Duff pulling the strings. West Brom were very wasteful and lost 3-0 at home to Hull, and I think Newcastle should have enough quality to win this one.
Roland's prediction: $5 on Newcastle -0.5 @ 1.90 = $9.50
