The Toon Army travel to South Wales on Wednesday night looking to continue their impressive winning run, with our tipster Hugh Wilson lining up a 6/4 value betIt wasn't long ago that Alan Pardew was beginning to 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 term, as they go in search of their fifth win in a row on Wednesday evening.
The Magpies currently sit in sixth position in the Premier League, above the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, and with recent wins over Chelsea and Spurs, they have not 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 Capital One Cup and Europa League.
Swansea come into this match having lost their last two games. 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. 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 too good to turn down.
It's also worth noting Swansea's current form, having struggled for wins, especially at home, where they are without a victory 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.
