Sam’s Betting Tips – West Bromwich Albion FC vs Newcastle United FC

“The high-flying Baggies opened the door to Leeds United at the top of the Championship over the weekend when they suffered a shock defeat to Wigan. Newcastle have been picking up draws here and there, but are slowly slipping into a relegation fight in the Premier League. It’s a tedious trek to the West Midlands midweek for the Toon army and I can’t see them making the hat.”
