Newcastle - Manchester City Betting Preview: Back the visitors to win with both teams scoring

The Magpies look to erase the memory of their derby loss at the weekend as they welcome City to St James' Park and our tipster is backing the away side to triumph
Alan Pardew will hope his side can put in a performance this evening after a disappointing loss in the Tyne Wear derby at the weekend. Manchester City are the visitors tonight, with a place in the Capital One Cup quarter finals up for grabs.

Newcastle United have been hugely inconsistent over the last few weeks. The Magpies have lost three of their last six matches, winning two and drawing one.

A late Fabio Borini wonder strike left them pointless at the weekend, with this result following up a spirited 2-2 draw at home to Liverpool in the league.

In the last round of this competition, United battled past Leeds United 2-0 at home. Betway price them at 15/4 (4.75) to progress in 90 minutes.

Manchester City were also beaten at the weekend, with a defensive error gifting Fernando Torres with a goal to give Chelsea a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge. City played well on Sunday, with this result following three straight wins from Manuel Pellegrini's side.

City easily dispatched of Wigan in the last round, with a strong side coming out on top 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium. Betway price them as clear favourites at 7/10 (1.70) to win the match, with the same firm pricing the draw at 11/4 (3.75).

With over 2.5 goals and both teams to score bets far too short to back, it's worth looking elsewhere for a bet that stands out. Manchester City to win and both teams to score at 11/5 (3.20) seems like a fantastic price with Betway.

This bet would have paid out in three of City's last four matches, and with Newcastle scoring in their last nine matches, this bet is certainly worth a small investment.
