Pick of the day #23: Tottenham – Newcastle
Tottenham Hotspur host Newcastle United and I believe that both teams will score here. Spurs have a strong offensive team and despite some problems up front (Defoe injured, Adebayor back from African Cup of Nations, but he hasn’t produced for his club yet this season) they should manage to score at least once.
Newcastle have a new team with players back from injury and new signings (especially Sissoko seems to be a great signing) and I am confident that they will do well in the last part of the season. They look solid now with Cabaye and Tioté back and are now strong enough to score away to Tottenham.
Bet365 offers 1.80 for the BTTS bet, and I think that is too high . Observe kick off 13:45 CET.

Sandro, Defoe, Kaboul
