Swansea City v Newcastle United Betting: Goals to come thick and fast in South Wales

Although neither side has started the season strongly in front of goal, out tipster is backing a high-scoring match between the Magpies and the Swans

Swansea City v Newcastle hardly screams excitement for a neutral, but both sides know that Sunday afternoon is a perfect chance for one of them to kick-start their season.

It took the hosts nearly four hours to find their first goal this term, with Tammy Abraham netting in a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace, although that was their second clean sheet after a 0-0 draw at Southampton on the opening weekend.

The Toon had similar luck in front of goal, taking until 36 minutes into their third game to score via Joselu, after a 2-0 loss at home to Spurs and a 1-0 reverse at Huddersfield Town.

There really is not much between these two sides, with dabblebet offering 7/5 (2.4) for a home win, 21/10 (3.1) for a Geordie triumph, and 9/4 (3.25) that they split the points.

Neither team is exactly flying as they sit just one place apart in the league and have contributed a measly five goals combined, therefore you might expect a low-scorer to be on the cards, but here's why that might not be the case.

Five of the last six matches between the teams have featured three goals or more, with Swansea winning three of their last four home league games against Newcastle.


With Paul Clement bringing Wilfried Bony back to the Liberty Stadium, the hosts have a target man to replace Fernando Llorente and with both attacks seemingly finding their feet after a couple of early misfires, this match could well provide much more entertainment than expected.

In addition to that, the surprise loan capture of Renato Sanches from Bayern Munich offers the Swans a replacement for the departed Gylfi Sigurdsson, and will be able to fill the void left in attacking midfield by the Icelandic international.

dabblebet go 3/1 (4.0) that between 4 and 6 goals are scored and while the public perception might be that this is likely to be a low-scoring affair, it could pay handsomely to take the opposing view.

You can also back dabblebet's boosted acca, which features all three promoted clubs to win at a huge 37/1 (38.0) with all winnings paid in cash and available to all customers.
