Even without many World Cups, Tottenham made an excellent campaign in the International Champions Cup, not losing any of the 3 matches.
For the Premier League debut, the Argentine Pochettino will already have at his disposal all the players that were present in the World Cup (although not everyone should start at the beginning).
The move to St. James Park will not be easy, it is never for any team, but the Spurs are in a position to bring in the 3 points at this point, given that Newcastle seem to be far from doing what it can do.
The formation of Rafa Benitez, only won 1 game in the preseason, was even thrashed by Braga 4-0. With odd in pair, I believe the best bet here will be to exploit the market of winners in favor of outsiders.
