You know things have been going poorly for Newcastle when they're just barely favored on the soccer odds board over Norwich City at home. Check our free soccer pick inside.

Odds Overview
As of now, the Magpies are in the +160 to +175 range to win and earn all three points at home at St. James' Park. Those wishing to back Norwich City can find a nice price of +180 or so, with a draw available at approximately +230.

 

Newcastle
Ugly. That's how best we can describe Newcastle's league campaign so far. The Magpies are at the bottom of the Premier League table, having earned only three points through their first eight matches.

With a -11 goal differential, nothing has been going right for Newcastle, and they're in serious danger of relegation, regardless of how early we are into the season. As of now, the Magpies are the top overall favorites on the soccer odds board to get relegated. 

 

Norwich City
The Canaries are in the middle of a pretty decent run of form, having lost just one of their last five matches across all competitions. They did, however, lose 2-1 at home to Leicester City in their latest fixture, which wasn't exactly how they wanted to enter the two-week international break.

Overall, Norwich City can be found in 13th place in the EPL, with nine points earned in eight matches to go with a -2 goal differential. Russell Martin and Nathan Redmond lead the team with three league goals apiece.

 

Premier League Pick
Certainly not the most glamorous Sunday tie here, but a soccer pick has to be made regardless.

And, believe it or not, we actually think Newcastle is going to win their first league match of the season this weekend. This sets up as a nice spot for the Magpies to rid the demons at home against a Norwich outfit that's winless over its last three matches away from home. We like the price as well, so we'll back Newcastle in this situation.

Predicted Final Score: Newcastle 2 Norwich City 1
