Son Heung-min’s return to the Tottenham squad following South Korea’s elimination in the Asian Cup quarter finals could prove pivotal if they’re to get the better of a Newcastle that’ll doubtless be buoyed by their shock midweek win over Manchester City.
Tottenham vs Newcastle: Odds and Predictions
The Lilywhites are 38/100 match betting favourites to record their fourth successive victory over the Magpies, with the visitors 8/1 underdogs and the draw trading at odds of 18/5.
Our Tottenham vs Newcastle predictions are mindful that the Magpies have lost just four away league games this term, but equally that they’ve yet to take a point off a member of the big six on their travels.

Tottenham vs Newcastle predictions: correct score, best bet, scorer tips
As alluded to above, Rafael Benitez’s side haven’t lost an away league game to a non-big six foe this term, but have uniformly lost when visiting the big boys they’ve met so far.
The first of our Tottenham vs Newcastle predications is that the streak will continue with Son back to add cutting edge to the Lilywhites’ forward line and Salomon Rondon and friends expected to struggle against one of the Premier League’s joint-third most miserly defences.
Correct score prediction: Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle @ 11/2
This correct score Tottenham vs Newcastle tip clicked when the sides met at Wembley last term and with Lilywhites forwards Harry Kane and Dele Alli absent through injury, a close game is anticipated.
Goalscorer predictions: Tottenham to win 1-0 Son Heung-min to score first @ 22/1
It’s extremely heartening to see such a mainstream Tottenham vs Newcastle prediction trading at such sizeable odds, but the South Korean is undoubtedly the most likely difference maker here.
Scoring at a ratio of once per 90 minutes in the Premier League this season (Kane has bagged his 14 goals at a rate of one every 89 minutes), he has been lethal.
Tottenham vs Newcastle stats
Three of Tottenham’s last five goals against Newcastle were scored by Alli (2) or Kane (1).
Newcastle have struck just nine times in 11 league away games this season.
Spurs have won five of their eight matches in which Kane hasn’t started in 2018/19.
