Newcastle United v Reading Odds: Royals to gain a point from Magpies

Alan Pardew was buoyed by Newcastle United’s point at Norwich City last weekend and the Magpies boss will be hoping that they can use that dogged defensive display as a catalyst for a win on Saturday when they welcome Reading to St James’ Park, in a game that can shake up the bottom half of the Premier League.

The Royals will head to the North East full of confidence after three goals in eight astonishing minutes saw them produce the comeback of the season against West Bromwich Albion to grab all three points, and Brian McDermott will be hoping that their shock win can activate a positive response and they can start to pull themselves out of the relegation zone.

However, it’s the home side that will go into the clash as favourites and Paddy Power have installed Newcastle as the 3/4 market leaders to grab the victory, whilst Reading are available at 15/4 to head back to the Madejski Stadium with back-to-back wins, with the draw available at 13/5 with the Dublin-based firm.

Pardew has been coming under fire from some quarters over the last couple of months as the Magpies have stuttered to 15th place in the Premier League having only won two games in 13 league outings and so the 4/5 on offer could be a tad on the skinny side.

Nevertheless, the return of Yohan Cabaye as a second half substitute against the Canaries last week is a massive bonus and the playmaking midfielder should bolster their attacking outlets, and with Demba Ba having left for Chelsea they will need all the flare they can get, as they look to pull away from their precarious position that sees them two points above the drop zone.

Having been pencilled in for relegation from the start of season Reading have shown tremendous fight in the last month and they have gained seven points from their last four games and that is certainly survival form, so if they can continue to eke out results then the 13/5 on offer for the draw could be the way to go.

Both sides have looked shaky at the back in recent months and there should be goals in the contest, as there was when the sides drew 2-2 earlier in the season at the Madejski, so it’s not surprising that a goalless draw is available at 11/1 in the latest betting with Paddy Power. Currently heading the correct score market is a 1-1 draw and at 6/1 that could well offer some decent value, whilst punters could be lured in by the 11/1 for a 2-2 scoreline.

Papiss Cisse will now be the linchpin of the Toon attack and he is the 5/1 market leader to bag the first goal and that is terrific value in a match where very few players can be described as prolific. Adam Le Fondre (8/1) and Pavel Pogrebnyak (7/1) could lead the Royals line and they are the most likely goal-getters for the away side, but at 5/1 the odds about Cisse bagging the first goal could be the way to go in a tricky betting encounter.
