Betting tips

Newcastle United are developing a reputation as one of the league’s real entertainers. The Magpies’ last nine Premier League games have all produced over 2.5 match goals at an average of 4.88 goals per game. Over 2.5 match goals is priced at 4/11 ahead of Monday evening. Meanwhile, both teams have scored in each of Chelsea’s last five Premier League games. Both teams to score on Monday looks a solid bet at the same price.

Anthony Gordon has scored in back-to-back league games against Chelsea whilst the 23-year-old has netted three in Newcastle United’s last four matches. Gordon looks great value at 5/2 to score at any time on Monday evening.

Nicholas Jackson has scored in back-to-back matches for Chelsea and could again prove their most likely source of goals. Jackson has 11 goals in all competitions this season and is priced at 7/5 to add to that tally against Newcastle United. Additionally, Jackson is 5/1 to score first.
