A global Tottenham Hotspur podcast and viewpoint, by the fans for the fans.
In our history we’ve played Newcastle 130 times, with a 44% win ratio, and a 65% unbeaten ratio, however away from home our win ratio historically drops to 31% and our unbeaten ratio to 60%. In this fixture last year we won 4-0, with a brace from Adebayor, and Paulinho and Chadli also hitting the mark.
Newcastle’s current form is poor. They have lost their last five games, most recently against Liverpool.
Our form is only a little better, with only a point from the last two games, where six points should have been achievable.
I rate the likelihood of us scoring as 74%, and of scoring more than once as 58%, and of keeping a clean sheet as 32%. The most likely scoreline is 1-1, followed by a 1-0 win, a 2-1 win and a 1-0 defeat.
Overall I have 42% for a Spurs win, 28% for a draw and 30% for a Newcastle win. Currently the best odds for a Spurs win can be found at Betbright who are offering odds of 11/8.
