Betting tips: Why Fulham’s Damien Duff is set to net against Newcastle
Betting tips: The Tipster is backing Fulham winger Damien Duff to score against Newcastle United at Craven Cottage
Fulham and Newcastle United meet at Craven Cottage with both sides struggling to find form, and the Tipster is backing Damien Duff to net for Martin Jol’s men on Monday night.
Our resident betting expect is backing a tight, low-scoring game between two out-of-form sides, tipping a draw in west London with under 2.5 goals scored.
Duff to score any time for Fulham v Newcastle – 15/4
With doubts over the fitness of Davide Santon, it might up to the less experienced Shane Ferguson to fill in at left-back. This could play into the hands of wily veteran Damien Duff. The former Republic of Ireland winger has scored three Premier League goals this term and he would relish adding to that tally against his former club. Duff is 15/4 to score any time against the Magpies.
Fulham and Newcastle to draw – 5/1
Newcastle have really struggled to match the standards they set last season and it has been a disappointing campaign for the Geordies, emphasised by their poor away form. They have yet to win on their travels in seven attempts but they have managed to draw four of those games. The Tipster fancies the two side to cancel each other out and the draw at 5/2 looks a good shout.
Under 2.5 goals in Fulham v Newcastle – Evens
Having started the season in free-scoring form, the goals have dried up for Fulham of late – they have failed to score in their last three league games. Despite having an impressive arsenal of attacking players, Newcastle find themselves near the bottom of goals scored in the division, with only 17 scored from 15 games. With the firepower struggles evident, the Tipster thinks the obvious bet here is under 2.5 goals at Evens.
Fulham to score under 1.5 goals against Newcastle – 5/6
Despite possessing talented strikers such as Dimitar Berbatov and Bryan Ruiz, Fulham have failed to score in their last three Premier League outings. So, perhaps unsurprisingly, they have failed to win their last seven matches. A 5-2 win last January aside, Fulham have managed two goals in their last four meetings against Newcastle. So Jol’s men to score under 1.5 goals looks a great shout at 5/6.
The long shot: Cissé to score first and the draw – 25/1
With Demba Ba in a battle to be fit for Monday night’s clash at Craven Cottage, Papiss Cissé will have to carry the burden of firing Newcastle towards some much-needed points. The Senegal international scored first in the Magpies last away fixture in the Premier League, and the Tipster’s ambitious long shot is Cissé to score first but Fulham and Newcastle to draw at 25/1.
