Sunderland's Best Odds: 8/5
If you’re betting on Sunderland to win, PaddyPower offers the best odds at 8/5.
Sunderland are having a terrible season, with Dick Advocaat leaving earlier this month having not won a single game and racking up 6 losses in 9 games.
New manager Sam Allardyce’s squad really needs a win against the Toon on Sunday to get them off the bottom of the table and to secure their first win of the season.
Having flirted with relegation for the last 4 seasons and a victory against fierce rivals Newcastle would be the perfect way to get their Premier League campaign back on track.
Even though Newcastle are having a slightly better season, Sunderland are actually online bookmakers favourites to win this bottom-of-the-table clash.
They did the double over Newcastle in both Tyne-Wear Derbies last season and have also won the last 5 consecutive games that they've played against them.
The main problem Sunderland face, apart from the fact that they haven’t won a game since defeating Everton last May, is that they lack quality in key areas.
Newcastle's Best Odds: 2/1
If you think Newcastle will secure all 3 points against the fierce rivals, Bet Victor offers the best odds at 2/1.
Newcastle are also having an awful time of it, having only won 1 of their Premier League games so far and currently sit third from bottom on just 6 points.
Newcastle did have their first win of the season last weekend, when they emphatically beat Norwich 6-2 which should help kick-start their Premier League campaign.
Even though they come into the Tyne-Wear derby on the back of a massive victory, fans will still be dreading a 6th consecutive defeat to rivals Sunderland.
This will be former Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce’s second game in charge of Sunderland and he'll be hoping that he can pull one over on his previous employers.
In the lead up to the Sunderland vs Newcastle Steve McLaren will be aiming to keep hi teams spirits high, build momentum and repeat last weeks performance.
Best Odds On A Draw: 9/4
While Sunderland favourites, you never know with local derbies. If you're betting on a draw, Ladbrokes offers the best odds on the result at 9/4.
Although Sunderland have a better recent track record in previous encounters, Sunderland vs Newcastle could very well end all square with both teams in similar form.
