Newcastle v Swansea Odds: Back a double result in the St James' betting

Newcastle welcome Swansea to St James' Park on Saturday afternoon and both sides are looking to improve on their current mid-table positions in the Premier League. Newcastle are currently 10th, just one place above Swansea, and it is the Magpies who start favourites with the bookies this weekend.

Alan Pardew's side have struggled to hit the heights of last year so far this season but they will see a home match as the perfect opportunity to kick-start their season. They are currently 10/11 favourites with Bet 365 and that looks a fairly generous price, particularly when you consider Swansea, who are 3/1 in the match odds, haven't beaten Newcastle in their last seven attempts.

Newcastle caused a real surprise with their performances in the top-flight last season and many were expecting them to be top-four candidates this term. It hasn't quite worked out like that but they have missed Cheick Tiote through injury and the influential midfielder could return this weekend.

Tiote's presence could have a huge impact on the game as Newcastle bid to add to their three league wins, which have all come at home. They have tended to start matches slowly as they have scored just four goals in the first half of league games and with that in mind the double result of a half-time draw and full-time Newcastle win looks very tempting at 4/1 with B365.

Demba Ba will no doubt be looked upon to fire Newcastle to three points and the classy striker has scored seven league goals already. Ba is 9/2 favourite to score first and it is hard to argue with his favouritism in this market, particularly as Swansea have conceded first in eight of their 11 top-flight outings.

Swansea have been something of a mystery so far as they get used to life under Michael Laudrup and their home performances have been hugely impressive. It is a different story away from the Liberty Stadium though as they have failed to score in four of their last six Premier League away games, including defeats to Aston Villa, Stoke and Man City, as well as a draw with Southampton so far this season.

It is a worrying trend and the fact they have failed to score in five of the last six Newcastle v Swansea clashes doesn't bode well either, with B365 going 9/4 for Newcastle to win to nil. Newcastle look worthy favourites on home soil, despite their defeat to West Ham last weekend, and they could get the better of a low scoring encounter.

Swansea's last four away games have gone under 2.5 and that particular market can be backed at evens, while the Welsh side haven't kept a clean sheet in nine and Ba and co. could well take advantage of a lightweight defence.
