With both Sunderland and Newcastle currently in the relegation zone, we know we'll see a hard-fought, competitive match at the Stadium of Light this weekend. Let's do an overview of the soccer odds.

Odds Overview
The Black Cats are barely favored, as they're listed at +150 on the Premier League Betting Odds Board to win outright this Sunday. If you believe Newcastle is the better side to take, you can get a Magpies victory there for the taking at +190. A draw is at approximately +235 to +240.

At this time, the Black Cats find themselves in dead last in the Premier League, with a mere three points to their name over a span of nine matches. They own a goal differential of -11, and have yet to outright win a match in league play; their three points have come through three draws.

We'll have to see if the hiring of Sam Allardyce will help Sunderland turn things around and avoid relegation. He wasn't able to guide the team to any points in his debut, but now gets a winnable fixture this coming weekend at home inside the Stadium of Light, a tricky place to place for visitors.

Yes, Newcastle is still in the relegation zone, but this is a team that has to be on top of the world after a comprehensive 6-2 win over Norwich City this past Monday.

Georginio Wijnaldum was the star of the show in that victory, amazingly scoring four times to lead the Magpies. Now Wijnaldum and company will turn their attentions to a similarly desperate Sunderland outfit.


Premier League Pick
This is certainly not going to be the most exciting match of the upcoming slate. After all, we've got Manchester City vs. Manchester United, Arsenal vs. Everton, and Liverpool vs.Southampton on the horizon this weekend.

Nonetheless, there's typically value on the soccer odds board that we can exploit. We don't see much separating these teams on Sunday, and so, if you have any interest in this match at all, we may look at a draw as the most appealing soccer pick.
