Sunderland v Newcastle Betting Odds

Sunderland v Newcastle betting odds for 20 August 2011 had this as a close game with Sunderland at 11/10 odds and Newcastle at 13/5.  The draw was listed at 9/4 at 888Sport.com.

Sunderland was getting 55 percent of the betting action while Newcastle was getting 21 percent, slightly less than the draw at 24 percent.

Backing Newcastle or the draw might make sense when one considers the historic rivalry between these two clubs and the price being offered.

Sunderland have only won on two of the last 21 occasions they've hosted their rivals since 1967.  Their only win in the last 13 league encounters against Newcastle was 2-1 at home in October 2008 (W1, D5, L7).

The problem with Newcastle is that they have only won three games in their last 19.

NFL Divisional Playoff: Baltimore Ravens @ Buffalo Bills Prediction

The Buffalo Bills held off the Indianapolis Colts, 27-24, as Josh Allen threw for 324 yards (with 128 of those yards going to Stefon Diggs). The Colts, despite coming in with the seventh seed, showed why they are a difficult team to stop. They rank in the top ten in the NFL on offense, defense and special teams, and the running of Jonathan Taylor kept Colt drives going, and it also took into the second half for the Bills to solve that Colt defense.
