Aston Villa and their season of misery is almost over and this time it is time for Rafa Benitez and his Newcastle team to get three points. This match means nothing to Aston Villa since relegation is confirmed but for Newcastle it means the world since they are right in the middle of a relegation battle which they have a great chance of winning.

Newcastle seem to be a new team since Rafa Benitez came on board and winning this game is essential for them to avoid relegation. I think they will win this game and I think they will do it with some ease. Last weekend Aston Villa managed to lose a game which they had all but won and that shows that they can’t even buy a win at the moment so there seems like there is little chance that they win or even draw a game here.

This will be a one sided game but there are still a few good bets here. First the over 2.5 goals is a good wager since Aston Villa have a shocking record while defending and I think they will concede 3 goals themselves. This is a banker bet and I think betting quite large is a good choice.

The second bet that I think is worth it is placing money on Newcastle -1.0 asian handicap. We are getting an amazing price and I don’t think that Newcastle ever lose so we are basically free rolling. A smallish wager is good here since we are getting a pretty good price and it is not as safe as the previous bet which I have mentioned.

Overall I think this will be a very one sided contest but there is value in betting on this game so it is worthwhile to us. Both wagers have good prices to them and they are both relatively safe so I like it. 

Pick:
Over 2.5 Goals
