888sport has a great welcome offer for new customers giving treble odds on their first bet placed, which is ideal for this Sunday’s Premier League clash between Sunderland and Newcastle United.
Sunderland “welcome” fierce rivals Newcastle United to the Stadium of Light on Sunday lunchtime for the 143rd Tyne-Wear Derby, with both sides stuck in the relegation places and desperate to get a precious win over their closest neighbours. Following Newcastle’s emphatic 6-2 win over Norwich last Sunday, they now sit in 18th place - as the Black Cats occupy their previous spot of being rooted to the foot of the Premier League table.
While that result gave Steve McClaren his first league win as Magpies’ boss in nine attempts, new Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce - who arrived at the club following Dick Advocaat’s departure from Wearside - and his new employers are still awaiting their first three points of 2015/16.
Although, with the Black Cats recent success in this fixture, Big Sam will certainly be targeting a win over his former employers - after occupying the home dugout at St James’ Park during 2007-2008.
Sunderland have won each of the last five derbies - stretching back to their first 3-0 win on Tyneside in April 2012 - scoring 10 goals and conceding just one in that time.
With a further two 1-1 draws taking place before then, Newcastle will go into Sunday’s crunch clash at the Stadium of Light looking for their first derby win since Ryan Taylor’s free-kick earned a 1-0 triumph on the same ground back in August 2011.
In 142 previous meetings in all competitions, Newcastle just edge the overall head-to-head record with 51 wins to Sunderland’s 47 - despite having failing to register a victory in any of the last seven meetings. The Black Cats have fared the best on home soil, however, with 25 wins and 26 draws in 71 home clashes - compared to Newcastle’s 20 wins.
Sunderland to win is 11/7 on 888sport, but the bookmaker is enhancing those odds to 47/10 with treble odds. A Newcastle win at the Stadium of Light is boosted to 5/1 from the normal odds of 17/10, while the draw will pay better at 7/1 when the price is tripled.
Open an account with 888sport and you will get treble odds on your first bet, up to £10 maximum stake.
You’d be crazy to let the offer pass if you don’t have an account with 888sport and the great thing about this treble odds offer is that all the winnings will be paid in cash, which means it can be withdrawn straight away and there is no obligation to make another bet with the extra winnings like some other enhanced odds offers.
The offer applies to any sport and 888sport has an extensive choice with thousands of markets on over 20 different sports. However, it’s this Premier League clash that will create most interest this Sunday lunchtime - as both Sunderland and Newcastle hope to close the gap on the teams just outside of the Premier League relegation places, at the expense of their bitter rivals.
