Thomas 12/1 To Score First At Newport

15 March 2016

We review the best of the odds ahead of Tuesday night's game at Newport County.

Pools are rated a 13/5 shot to celebrate a third successive win when they visit Newport County on Tuesday night, with the visitors installed as 21/20 favourites and the draw priced at 12/5.

Of course, the game between the sides at Rodney Parade last season produced a highly-entertaining 2-2 draw – you can back the same happening again at odds of 14/1 with Sky Bet.

If you think it will be a more cagey affair this time around then you could opt for a 1-0 Pools win at a tempting price of 17/2, or a 2-1 triumph which is available at a large 11/1.

The last two wins for Pools have both come by a 3-1 margin but the bookies don’t fancy a repeat of that in South Wales – it’s priced up at a massive 33/1 right now with Sky Bet.

Billy Paynter remains in terrific form so it’s no surprise he’s Pools’ favourite for the opening goal at 11/2, with Luke James 15/2 to open his account with the first strike of the evening.

Nathan Thomas is tempting one at a price of 12/1 to hit the net first, while punters looking for a bigger return could do worse than back Jake Carroll to score again at odds of 40/1.
