Newcastle United v Liverpool Preview, Premiership, Saturday 19th October 2013

Newcastle United head into this game having had a decent start to their new season after seven games played. Alan Pardew’s side have secured 10pts which currently has them placed in 10th position of the league table having secured three wins, one draw and three defeats, all three of those victories coming in their last five matches played.

Liverpool are having one of their best starts to the new season and currently occupy 2nd place in the league table on 16pts having secured five wins, one draw and one defeat.

Brendan Rogers seems to have found the right mix of players now in his squad and with Luis Suarez now back in action having recently returned from a lengthy suspension all Liverpool fans will be confident that this season could be the one that secures their first top flight league since they last won the old First Division title back in 1989/90.

Newcastle United v Liverpool Match Betting Odds Market.

Newcastle United have slowly began to climb up the Premiership league table in recent weeks and with home advantage in this game they will be confident of obtaining the right result. However the online bookmakers don’t seem to agree and currently have the hosts priced up at 17/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) to cause what would be a bit of a shock win on saturday afternoon.

The Draw has only happened ‘Once in the Previous Sixteen Meetings’ so does look an unlikely event, but for those that think a draw is well overdue, you can take advantage of a best price of 14/5 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) for both sides to share the points.

Liverpool have been quite impressive at times so far this season and with the return of Luis Suarez in recent weeks they are only going to be a much more difficult side to stop winning games and the online bookmakers seem to agree as they currently have Brendan Rogers side the clear favourites to win this game on saturday afternoon with a best price of 10/11 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) currently available.

Newcastle United v Liverpool Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

I would expect most people will have Liverpool down to win this game in their betting coupons this weekend and it’s hard to find any reason why Brendan Rogers side won’t oblige as now with Suarez and Sturridge leading the attack up front, there are going to be plenty of goals scored.

Newcastle United also seem to have found a player though who is in a rich vein of form when it comes to scoring goals and Loic Remy does provide the hosts with at least a chance of getting something from this game come saturday afternoon.

However, with the Newcastle United defence having conceded 12 goals already this season from just 7 games played, it does seem that until Alan Pardew can fix the problems at the back, they are always going to concede goals and I don’t expect that to change this weekend with Sturridge and Suarez in the kind of form they are in at the moment for the visitors.

The goal stats suggest this game to see at least a couple of goals so betting markets like Both Teams to Score, Over 2.5 Goals, Anytime Goalscorer, First Goalscorer and Total Match Goals look other options to consider when thinking about your bets on this game.
