Football Betting Tips:
These matches always throw up all sorts of strange stats and Sunderland have now had 4 different managers in 2 years. On each occasion, the new man in charge has had the Tyne-Wear derby as his second game in charge.
Sam Allardyce takes charge of his second Sunderland match,,,and oh look,,, it's Newcastle.
It's not been a good season for either side, with just 1 win between them all campaign. That came last week for the Magpies, who thumped Norwich 6-2. They showed some excellent attacking football, which asked the question of why they hadn't scored more often. They weren't much good at the back though, conceding twice and letting Norwich rattle the woodwork twice.
Georginio Wijnaldum scored 4 times and he finally looks to be settling in after swapping the Eredivisie for the Premier League.
It's been a story of distrastrous defending for Sunderland as well as they've leaked goals left, right and centre. Dick Advocat couldn't stop the goals flying in and he eventually made way for Sam Allardyce. Big Sam lost his first game in charge to West Brom, with just a single goal settling it. Tony Pulis likes to keep it tight and didn't give the Black Cats much space going forward, they will get a lot more opportunities here.
Newcastle haven't beaten Sunderland since 2011 and they will be a confident mood after their glut of goals. It's no surprise to see these two teams in the bottom 3 when it comes to defensive records, with only Norwich shipping more goals.
As defences definitely will NOT be on top in this game, I fancy both sides to find the back of the net.
The first of my football betting tips for Sunderland v Newcastle is Both Teams to Score? Yes. It can be backed at 8/11 with Bet365
There has been many 1-1 draws between these sides in the last few derbies and this one could go a similar way with both sides lacking confidence. However, I think the victory last week was a huge boost for Steve McClaren and I would side with them on the Draw No Bet market.
The second of my football betting tips for Sunderland v Newcastle is Newcastle Draw No Bet. It can be backed at Evens at Betfred
After his goalscoring exploits 7 days ago, I cannot see past Georgino Wijnaldum to repeat his tricks. Sam Allardyce will be aware of the dnger posed by the former PSV man, but I think he can give the Sunderland defence the slip and strike.
The third of my football betting tips for Sunderland v Newcastle is Georginio Wijnaldum to score anytime. It can be backed at 21/10 with William Hill
