Rafa Benitez's side put in a valiant away performance at Everton in their last match on the road before losing to Wolves at home last week, much to the displeasure of the Magpies boss who called for the introduction of VAR after some questionable decisions.
They were unfortunate to lose and have reasons to be confident of claiming all three points in West Yorkshire - especially after Aaron Mooy was ruled out for the hosts. The Australian midfielder is their star man and has been sidelined until February with a knee injury, a cruel blow at a crucial time in the season.
This may not be a thriller but the 9/4 price for an away win does catch the eye, while Newcastle draw no bet at just above evens gives you more leeway should there be any doubt.
There was some temptation to back Ayoze Perez in a score and win double at a best price of 6/1, but the Spanish forward's better recent form seems to have come in front of his own fans and the preference is to count on Salomon Rondon.
The Venezuelan forward has popped up with some important strikes, three in his last five appearances in the Premier League, and 13 shots in his last three games highlight a persistent threat
