Newcastle vs. Tottenham prediction, odds, line: Expert reveals English Premier League picks for April 3, 2022

Tottenham Hotspur hosts Newcastle United in an English Premier League match Sunday, and it’s a game Spurs can’t afford to lose. Tottenham (16-3-10) is fifth in the Premier League table, three points behind Arsenal, and it needs to at least keep pace with nine games left. The Gunners have a game in hand in the race for the coveted top-four spot, so Spurs will be gunning for the three points against the 14th-place Magpies. Newcastle (7-10-12) spent a lot of money in the January transfer window and is now nine points clear of relegation but will want to close the season strong under new ownership that has big plans. 

Kickoff is set for 11:30 a.m. ET in London. Caesars Sportsbook lists Tottenham as the -190 favorite (risk $190 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in its latest Tottenham vs. Newcastle odds, with Newcastle  the +550 underdog.

Featured Game | Tottenham Hotspur vs. Newcastle United

Why you should back Tottenham

Spurs are a tough team to deal with when they have had time to prepare, and they play very well at Hotspur Stadium. They have nine home victories, fourth-most in the league, and a plus-10 goal differential on their home ground. Tottenham beat the Magpies 3-2 in the last matchup in October and has lost once in the past nine (6-2-1) meetings. Spurs have scored 47 goals in their 29 matches, while the Magpies have scored 32.

Tottenham is in the middle of the pack in possession (51.7 percent), but Newcastle is second-to-last in the league (39.8), so Spurs should control the game. They also are very efficient with their shots, putting just over 38 percent on target, the best mark in the league. Newcastle opponents put almost 30 percent on net, third-worst in the EPL, and the Magpies have conceded 49 goals, fourth-most in the league. Spurs have yielded 36, and veteran goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is steady, posting 11 clean sheets and a save percentage of 70. 

Why you should back Newcastle

The Magpies spent more money than any team in the world, and they went on a nine-game unbeaten run in league play before their two-game skid. One of the two losses was to league power Chelsea but they also lost to a poor Everton team they had beaten 3-1 five weeks earlier. Veteran Chris Wood and 24-year-old Bruno Guimaraes were among the additions in January, and both scored in a 2-1 win against Southampton before the goals dried up the past two games. Wood has scored 137 goals in 416 matches across three divisions in England.     

The unbeaten run included a 1-1 draw with Manchester United, and Newcastle yielded just two goals in the losses but failed to score. Before those two games, it had not been held off the score sheet since a loss to league leader Manchester City in late December. The break has given the Magpies time to regroup and get healthy, and they face a Spurs squad that has been wildly inconsistent. Allan Saint-Maximin, the top scorer with five goals, should be back in the starting lineup Sunday, and goalkeeper Martin Dubravka also is expected to be available.
