Bet of the day: Wily Wijnaldum a tempting 2/1 anytime scorer
Matt Haynes | October 25, 2015
- Georginio Wijnaldum flourished with four-goal haul last time out
- Black Cats defenders will struggle to contain Magpies’ flying Dutchman
- McClaren’s midfielder just three behind Premier League top marksman Vardy
Arguably one of the most passionate derbies in the Premier League brings with it one of the best value bets of the weekend and customers should take full advantage!
Goals galore from Georginio in frightening form
Newcastle United’s £14.7m summer signing Georginio Wijnaldum was prolific last time out, hitting the back of the net four times in his side’s 6-2 win over Norwich City as the Magpies clipped the Canaries’ wings.
The Dutchman now has six goals in nine Premier League appearances and offered at 2/1 to score anytime with Coral, this represents an outstanding opportunity for punters to double their money.
Black Cats backline easily breached
Against a Sunderland rearguard who have been less than convincing this term, conceding 19 times and failing to keep a clean sheet, Wijnaldum will be encouraged by this and should’ve identified this match as an opportunity where he can further add to his goal tally.
His exceptional movement makes him tailor-made for the number 10 role in a midfield diamond recently used by Steve McClaren. If Wijnaldum occupies pockets of space in between the lines again, he can make it hard for the Sunderland centre backs, who, if they also have a forward to contend with, may not know what to do.
Veteran Black Cats captain John O’Shea has shown in recent weeks that he has lost a yard of pace, which can also work in Wijnaldum’s favour. Capable of scoring with either foot or with his head, whether this be long-range or close, the ex-PSV Eindhoven player can be confident of creating an opening for himself against Newcastle’s fiercest rivals.
Super supporting cast should mean Dutch delight
With the likes of Moussa Sissoko (pictured), Ayoze Perez and even compatriot Daryl Janmaat, who gets forward from full back, Wijnaldum can be confident of receiving requisite service in his quest to add more goals to his tally, with Newcastle 15/8 to record a victory at the Stadium of Light.
