The Toon Army travel to South Wales tonight looking to continue their winning run, with our tipster lining up a 6/4 value betIt wasn't long ago that Alan Pardew was starting the feel the pressure after a difficult start to the season. However, the Newcastle United boss seems to have turned around the club's fortunes this season, as they go in search of their fifth win in a row this evening.
The Magpies current sit in sixth position in the Premier League, above the likes of Tottenham and Manchester United and with recent wins over Chelsea and Spurs, they haven't had an easy fixture list.
Paddy Power price them at 23/10 (3.30) to leave Swansea with all three points.
Michael Laudrup's side have already played 23 competitive matches this season, having been involved in the League Cup and Europa League.
Swansea come into this match having lost their last two matches. Despite this recent run of only one win in eight, Paddy Power price them as favourites at 5/4 (2.25) to win. The same firm prices the draw at 23/10 (3.30).
A common theme in Swansea's home matches and Newcastle's away games has been goals. Over 2.5 goals would have paid out in five of the Swans' last six home league matches, as well as four of Newcastle's last five away games. However, with the price at 8/11 (1.73) it's worth looking elsewhere for value.
A bet that does stand out is Newcastle in the "Draw No Bet" market at 6/4 (2.50) with Paddy Power. Alan Pardew's men will come into this game oozing with confidence after winning their last four matches. With away victories already this season against the likes of Aston Villa, Cardiff and Spurs, the price seems to good to turn down.
It's also worth noting Swansea's current form, where they have struggled for wins, especially at home, where they are without a win in their last four and with punters seeing their stakes returned if this match ends in a draw, the 6/4 (2.50) looks well worth backing.
