Wins over Northampton and Exeter mean Cambridge United are the visitors for Newcastle's 400th FA Cup tie

With nine victories and three draws in 16 historical meetings, Newcastle have much the better of the head-to-head record between the pair, who meet on Saturday afternoon for the first time since the 1992/93 Division One campaign when the Magpies did the double over their opponents by an aggregate score of 7-1.

Support for a giant killing is thin on the ground, meaning the League One visitors are rated 12/1 underdogs, with Newcastle going down as one of the weekend bankers at a red-hot 1/4.

Only Chelsea and Manchester City have managed to prevent Newcastle scoring at St. James' Park in the league this season and punters are expecting goals whatever starting line-up manager Eddie Howe selects for the visit of last season's League Two runners-up.

The chances of Newcastle scoring four or more have been backed down to 10/3 from 4/1 this week with BoyleSports, who also make a goal in each half for the hosts a short even money shot from 5/4.

A man of the match performance from Joelinton last time out against Manchester United has seen him backed into 6/1 from 15/2 to break the deadlock.

The Brazilian has been responsible for 21 shots in 13 Premier League starts this season, including two shots and four key passes in the last match.

He also has two goals and two assists in seven FA Cup appearances and is a popular 7/4 shot from 5/2 to score at any time on Saturday.

BoyleSports are also delighted to be offering all Newcastle United fans an exclusive bet £10 and receive £30 in free bets, which can be accessed here.
