To Win (90mins)
Sunderland 7/4 
Draw 23/10 
Newcastle 31/20

It was Paolo Di Canio’s triumph in the Tyne-Wear derby that ultimately kept Sunderland up and him in a job last season.

Their 3-0 victory at St James’ Park was the catalyst for safety, but it would be his only victory in charge. Gus Poyet would take that and run, because the current Black Cat side seems a far way from claiming three points.

They were shambolic against Swansea.

Newcastle were better against Liverpool, but they remain an anomaly when it comes to betting on them. This derby is always fiercely contested, but often low on quality.

Betting Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals 
Don’t expect too much in the way of goals, with the under 2.5 goals market favoured at 17/20.
