Sunderland favs to avenge their Tyne-Wear humiliation
William Hill are offering 100/1 that Sunderland can reverse the 5-1 drubbing that they received at the hands of their bitter rivals, Newcastle, earlier in the season and win 5-1 at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland are 5/4 to win the game outright.
Hills are offering 4/7 that Sunderland finish above Newcastle in the Premier League this year with Newcastle 5/4 to finish above Sunderland. Sunderland are 4/1 to qualify for Europe this year while Newcastle are 14/1 to do so.
Darren Bent is 9/4 to outscore Andy Carroll on Saturday.
"Sunderland have been on an incredible run of form recently and they will be itching to set the record straight after the 5-1 thumping at the hands of their neighbours earlier in the season," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "The odds suggest that come Sunday evening, it will be the Mackems that are celebrating."
