To Win (90mins)
Newcastle 15/20 
Draw 29/10
Stoke 39/10

Newcastle just keep on defying the odds and have now won 6 of their last 8 matches, forcing me to reconsider my impression that they are nothing more than mid-table meanderers.

Yohann Cabaye has bossed the midfield, Debuchy looks back to his Euro 2012 best and Remy has been as clinical as ever.

A visit from Stoke, who themselves have shown an upturn in form should provide us with an interesting encounter.

The Potters made off with a victory over Aston Villa, with a resurgent Charlie Adam giving glimpses of why Liverpool paid all that money for him.

Betting Prediction: NEWCASTLE 15/20
After all is said and done though, I have to favour the home team at 15/20.
