As the countdown to derby day continues, official betting partner Bet Butler hunt down the best bets for the big game.

In the 146th encounter between these sides, Sunderland are slight favourites at 8/5, with Newcastle at 21/10 and the draw at 12/5.

Match Result:

Sunderland have an excellent record at home under Martin O’Neill, losing just two out of 14 games, with seven victories. However, another draw could be on the cards here as this derby has finished level half the time since 2007-08. Furthermore, all of the last four derby games at the Stadium of Light have been level at half time since 2007-08, as have half of Sunderland home games under O’Neill.

‘Half Time Draw’ at 11/10 looks a likely winner, while ‘Half Time Draw / Full Time Sunderland’ looks the big value bet for Sunderland fans at 11/2.  

First Scorer:

Sunderland have scored first in nine out of their fourteen home games under Martin O’Neill. Steven Fletcher will be hoping to add to that tally, having scored first in four out of the five league games that he’s started. Fletcher is 11/2 to score first, with Sessegnon at 8/1 and Saha at 7/1.
