Last weekend's 2-1 triumph at Aston Villa made it back-to-back victories for Newcastle and with the Magpies demonstrating that there's no need for panic at St James's Park, they're Paddy Power's strong, 5/6 favourites to beat Hull.
The visitors are Ladbrokes's 4/1 outsiders and it's 13/5 courtesy of BetVictor to finish all square, a wager that might prove popular given how tight both of United's home fixtures have been.
Winner.com post 11/2 against a 1-1 scoreline, bet365 make the it 4/1 to be level after 45 and 90 minutes. However, the Tigers have lost their two matches on the road without scoring and as the Magpies are in decent shape, there's every reason to believe they should secure a maximum haul.
Indeed, anyone buoyed by recent results can tackle Stan James's 8/1 about another 2-1 success for Pardew's charges, who are 5/2 (bet365) to nick it by a one-goal margin and a 15/8 chance via BetVictor to be in front at the end of each period.
A home triumph to nil is a generous 15/8 with Skybet and Hatem Ben Arfa is 7/1 at BetVictor to grab the opener for the third successive contest.
Having taken just one point from their opening four assignments, Sunderland prop up the Premier League and they come up against the team directly above them in the table, West Brom.
The Baggies are BetVictor's 21/20 favourites at the Hawthorns, where Paddy Power price Sunderland at 14/5 and betway post 12/5 against a stalemate.
As both teams remain winless, an inconclusive affair might prove popular, alongside Skybet's 10/1 for it to finish goalless and Stan James's 9/2, marked against scores being level at the end of each half.
Alternatively, bet365 hand the Black Cats a goal start in the handicaps at 5/6 but as the hosts are also struggling some supporters might feel this offers the ideal opportunity for Sunderland to grab their first victory and Ladbrokes post 10/1 against the Black Cats firing the game's only goal.
Also of interest could be Stan James's 7/1 for an away success following a level first 45 minutes or bet365's 4/1 about Di Canio's men shading it by one while bet365 chalk Sunderland up at 5/1 to combine victory with a clean sheet and at the other end, Steven Fletcher is a 7/1 shot at William Hill to break the deadlock.
Middlesbrough picked up a decent point at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday, although having led 2-0 they might feel they should have held on. The result was Boro's fourth stalemate and they're 13/5 (bet365) to draw again as they welcome Bournemouth to the Riverside.
Ladbrokes mark 16/1 against another 2-2 scoreline and BetVictor quote Tony Mowbray's troops at 4/9 in the draw no bet market but taking into account home advantage, William Hill consider Boro strong favourites at 21/20 while the Cherries are Stan James's 3/1 outsiders.
Skybet offer 11/4 about a home success by a solitary goal, it's 8/1 courtesy of BetVictor for Boro to hold on this time and register a 2-1 victory in a game that's 5/6 (Stan James) to produce at least three goals and it's 13/2 for Kei Kamara to fire the first of those, as he did at the City Ground in midweek.
Hartlepool picked up their first win of the campaign last weekend and they're 2/1 at betway to follow up it up by getting the better of Bristol Rovers, who are 12/5 (BetVictor) to hold Pools to a draw.
