During the 2015/16 season, Tottenham were rather close to winning the Premier League for the first time since 1961, but Newcastle United did their utmost to ensure that didn't happen. The Magpies came from behind to win 2-1 at White Hart Lane, and that result was hugely significant in the title race. When the hope was lost, Spurs fell apart at St James' Park, making fun of football forecast and getting thrashed 5-1. That humiliating defeat is still not forgotten. Remarkably, the Magpies ended up going down that season, and thus Mauricio Pochettino didn't have an opportunity to take revenge last season. With the hosts returning to the Premier League, the visitors have a decent chance to do just that, as we state in our Newcastle United vs Tottenham preview.
The visitors finished second last season, seven points behind Chelsea, and hope to go one better this term with Harry Kand and Dele Alli calling the shots again. They are missing Kyle Walker, who has been sold to Manchester City, and Danny Rose recently questioned the club's ambitions given the fact that no replacements were signed. That is hardly the most relevant angle for our Newcastle United vs Tottenham predictions, though. The hosts were top of the Championship, and strengthened their team in order to survive or even fight in the top half of the table.
With Alli and Kane in good form, it is easy to why putting money on the visitors is a good option for Sunday football odds. They are clear favourites as far as the quality of the squad is concerned, and the motivation couldn't possibly be higher. The odds are very good at Betway at 1.72, and those are our main Newcastle United vs Tottenham betting tips.
