Newcastle vs Oxford Betting Tips - Oxford have nothing to lose in the FA Cup

Newcastle have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 5 matches

Newcastle united friendly

Newcastle are the favourites as they host Oxford at St. James' Park in the FA Cup fourth round. The League One club are not expected to trouble the Magpies but can take advantage of Newcastle’s defensive injuries and score.

Newcastle United Form


Newcastle advanced to the FA Cup fourth round after a convincing 4-1 home win against League One club Rochdale. A Rochdale own goal was followed by strikes to Matthew Longstaff, Miguel Almirón and Joelinton before the Magpies conceded a late goal.

Steve Bruce’s side then hosted Chelsea in the English Premier League and won 1-0 thanks to Isaac Hayden’s late winner. Newcastle traveled to Everton for a midweek EPL fixture and drew 2-2 at Goodison Park.
Newcastle looked dead and buried at 2-0 down in added time, but substitute Florian Lejeune came up with two goals in the 93rd and 94th minutes to pull off an unlikely result. Lejeune's goals were Newcastle’s only shots on target in the match.

Verdict

Newcastle are too short for me at 1.40 so I am looking at the BTTS market. Newcastle’s full-back issues means Oxford can score at St. James' Park.
