Newcastle v Everton betting tips: Magpies host Lampard’s Premier League return
Preview and odds for Tuesday’s Premier League clash
The Premier League returns this week and there is a fascinating clash in the battle for survival up in the north east as we look through the odds to highlight some potential Newcastle v Everton betting tips.
Eddie Howe’s strugglers have been enjoying some mid-winter sun and Saudi Arabian hospitality in the winter break, while Everton will be hoping the arrival of Frank Lampard to Goodison Park can help them pull away from the danger zone.
The hosts are shading favouritism at 8/5 in Newcastle v Everton betting tips, but the Toffees recorded a confidence-boosting success in the FA Cup at the weekend and are 9/5 to begin the Lampard era with back-to-back victories.
Tuesday night’s match at St James’ Park kicks off at 7.45pm and is live on BT Sport.
Hope on Tyneside
Howe will know that a victory on Tuesday night will take Newcastle out of the bottom three for the first time since his arrival in the north east and the former Bournemouth gaffer will be hoping his side can make the most of their freshness having not played competitively since January 22.
Jonjo Shelvey’s second-half winner against Leeds means they head into this contest unbeaten in three in the top flight and with some of their January transfer window acquisitions set to run out in front of the St James’ Park faithful for the first time, the locals could be allowing themselves to whisper the word optimism.
Matt Targett and Dan Burn could join Keiren Trippier in a new-look Newcastle back-line that is beginning to look, at least on paper, more formidable than it did and £35million buy Bruno Guimaraes could add some well-needed quality and an extra layer of protection to the back-line from the middle of the park.
Those players could help the Magpies to a second successive win to nil at 18/5, while a clean sheet is 12/5 in Newcastle v Everton betting tips. The hosts have drawn four of their last six at St James’ Park and a share of the spoils can be backed at 12/5.
Looking at #YourCall options, Newcastle to win or draw, both teams to score in the second half and over 2.5 total goals at 9/2 and Newcastle to win either half, over 1.5 goals and the Magpies to also to keep a clean sheet at 13/2 both make some appeal.

Toffees hoping to escape a sticky situation
Lampard takes charge of his first game back in the Premier League and the former Chelsea gaffer appeared to have an immediate impact on Merseyside when the Toffees recorded a 4-1 FA Cup win over Brentford on Saturday.
That is only the second time Everton have won in 90 minutes since September and they will be eager to avoid getting sucked into a relegation battle, currently only four points above the drop zone, anxiously sat in 16th place.
Lampard will have been delighted to see Richarlison and Andros Townsend get on the scoresheet against the Bees and although Dominic Calvert-Lewin is still missing through injury, he will be relishing the opportunity to hand new signings Dele Alli and Donny van de Beek their Everton debuts.
Alli is 5/1 to have an immediate impact with an assist, while he can be backed at 11/10 to have one or more shots on target in Newcastle v Everton betting tips. For Van De Beek it is 7/1 for an assist and 4/5 to win three or more tackles.
Brazilian Richarlison to be offside one or more times and also have one or more shots on target is 6/4, while over 3.5 goals, Everton to win and both teams to score could come into play at 8/1 in a game both teams will be desperate to win.

This is the first time these two have met this season, but Newcastle did the double over the Toffees last term and the Magpies will be hoping to make it four wins in their last six against Everton on Tuesday night.
They beat Everton 2-0 last time and the same scoreline in favour of the hosts is 12/1 in Newcastle v Everton betting tips, while they have hit two goals in their last three against the Toffees and two or more is 27/20, with exactly two goals in the game 13/5.
Both teams to score has landed in five of the last six meetings between these two and that is 4/6 to oblige once again, while there hasn’t been a goalless draw between this pair since 2009, so if the honours are to be shared, then a draw with BTTS would make sense at 16/5.
Chris Wood is yet to open his account for Newcastle, but has bagged against Everton for both Leicester and Burnley and could continue his love of scoring against the Toffees at 9/5 for a goal at any time in Newcastle v Everton betting tips.
The New Zealand international is 6/1 to score at any time, have three or more shots on target and make 25 passes as a #YourCall option, while he can be backed at 22/1 to grab a goal and also provide an assist in Newcastle v Everton betting tips.
It is a whopping 250/1 for him to be the first and last goalscorer in the match and set up another for the Magpies.
Everton’s away form would be a huge worry for Toffees’ supporters and they have picked up just six points on their travels this season. They have also conceded in their last 10 competitive away games and the evens for Newcastle to score first could pay dividend.
The Magpies have scored just one goal in the last six games they have found the scoresheet and a solitary goal for the hosts is 8/5 in Newcastle v Everton betting tips, while it is 8/1 for back-to-back 1-0 victories at St James’ Park.
