Newcastle v Barnsley Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 7th May 2017

Championship Betting
Newcastle v Barnsley Betting Preview - Championship 7th May 12:00 pm Newcastle have a shot at the title, where they would have expected Brighton to have collected that already. But with the Seagulls slipping to back to back defeats, the door is open for the Magpies to claim the top spot on the final day.

Newcastle v Burnley Betting Tips

Newcastle can go out and land a win which could get them the league title. They could get it with a draw if leaders Brighton lose at Aston Villa. The Magpies have an easier last game than Brighton do and Newcastle have won their last two matches to put themselves in with a shot of stealing the title from the Seagulls. Newcastle have gone W14 D3 L5 on home soil in the Championship this season and earlier in the campaign, they collected a 2-0 win out at Barnsley. A 2-0 Newcastle correct score at bet365 in this one fetches a price of 13/2. Newcastle are on a four-match unbeaten streak at St James Park in the league (W3 D1) and will be expected to win this one. The Magpies are a price of 11/10 at bet365 to win to nil and the game to go under 2.5 goals is a decent price of 7/4. The Magpies also have winning form against Barnsley at home, winning their last four in a row there against them, scoring 13 goals. You have an option of both teams to score at 5/6 to oppose Newcastle earning a clean sheet. Barnsley have scored exactly one goal in three of their last four visits to Newcastle. Barnsley aren’t too likely to sneak into the top half of the table even with a win in this one and winning isn’t something they have done much of recently. They have taken one win in their last thirteen league games now which was out at Blackburn in early April. They have gone D2 L2 since then. They have lost five of their last six away games as well in the Championship (W1) and their overall away record this term is W9 D2 L11. In the bet365 anytime goalscorer market, Newcastle's Dwight Gayle is up at 1/2 favourite with Aleksandar Mitrovic, Daryl Murphy and Ayoze Perez all at even money. That’s some scoring power that Barnsley aren’t likely going to handle at the end of the day.

Newcastle v Barnsley Betting Odds

Newcastle 2/9, Draw 9/2, Barnsley 14/1

Newcastle v Barnsley Predictions

Newcastle Home Win: This should be easy picking for Newcastle who won’t be feeling the pressure Brighton will be under at Aston Villa. Easy win for Newcastle, worth a flutter on both teams to score though.

Cardiff v Newcastle Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 28th April 2017

Championship Betting
Cardiff v Newcastle Betting Preview - Championship 28th April 7.45pm The Magpies have to win this one to keep any faint hopes of winning the Championship title alive. They go on Friday night with a four-point deficit to make up to leaders Brighton, with just two games to play, if the Seagulls win on Saturday it won’t matter what the Magpies do in this one. So all that Newcastle have left is hope and they can enhance that by getting a win and putting some pressure on the leaders ahead of the final weekend.

Cardiff v Newcastle Betting Tips

Well Cardiff are just fluttering around in mid table and they have nothing left to play for this season now, so are just seeing the season out. They haven’t been in great form with just the three victories in their last eleven league games now, but those three victories were each record on home soil. This season Cardiff have produced a W11 D4 L7 record at home, so they have done alright and the Bluebirds have lost just one of their last ten on home soil in the league competition. Cardiff lost 2-1 at Newcastle earlier in the season and they did lose their last home match against the Magpies by the same scoreline as well. A Newcastle 2-1 correct score wager at Coral is a price of 15/2. The Bluebirds are on a nine-match winless streak against Newcastle in the league, losing all of those actually. This could be entertaining as Newcastle have to push and both teams to score at Coral is a price of 8/13 while over 2.5 goals is well worth a punt as well at 8/11. The Magpies need a win in this one to cut the gap down to leaders Brighton to just the one point. The only thing that would do would put some pressure on the Seagulls for their game on Saturday. If Brighton win that, they will be champions regardless of what Newcastle do. Newcastle are just in a bit of patchy form at the moment though as they have produced a W1 D1 L2 record in their last four league games played. A big 4-1 home win over Preston on Monday saw them book automatic promotion, however, away from St James Park, the Magpies are winless now in their last four away games (D2 L2) but now with promotion secured, there is nothing left for them to lose now, so they may as well throw the kitchen sink at this one. In the Coral anytime goalscorer market, Daryl Murphy and Aleksandar Mitrovic are 13/10 joint favourites, with Ayoze Perez, who netted a couple against Preston, is a 7/4 shot. Expect an open game.

Cardiff v Newcastle Betting Odds

Cardiff 13/5, Draw 5/2, Newcastle Even Money

Cardiff v Newcastle Predictions

Newcastle Away Win: With promotion secured, Newcastle can go out and attack this one with nothing to lose and that should see them get the three points on the board. Cardiff are average at best but it’s worth backing both teams to score in the match.

Newcastle v Preston Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 24th April 2017

Rafael Benitez
Newcastle v Preston Championship Predictions & Betting Odds - 24th April 2017 7.45pm After Brighton, who are already promoted to the Premier League, suffered a loss at Norwich on Friday night, Newcastle have the chance to move to within four points of the leaders. That would just about keep their faint title hopes alive if they bank three points in this one, with then just the two games to play. Preston have lost their last three league games on the bounce and Newcastle should have the bit between their teeth for this one. One of the top football betting products around is Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance which they offer on all matches listed in their sportsbook. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Newcastle v Preston Betting Tips

If Newcastle win this, then Brighton would be just the four points ahead of them in the title race, with two games to play. It would still take a lot for Newcastle to make that gap up, but they can fight back in this one. However, Newcastle have been struggling for wins lately as they have failed to pick up a win in any of their last three played now, the reason their title challenge has suffered so much. Overall they have gone just W2 D3 L3 in their last eight league games. Their last two defeats have happened away from home and their home form remains solid. They have lost just one of their last ten league games (W6 D3 L1) so they should still deliver in this one. They won 2-1 at Preston earlier in the campaign and a repeat Newcastle 2-1 correct score at Bet365 fetches a price of 7/1. But a 2-0 option is more appealing at 13/2 because the Magpies have won their last four on home soil against Preston to nil. Newcastle to win to nil at Bet365 is a quote of 8/5 which covers the bases well. Newcastle won 6-0 at home against Preston in this season’s EFL Cup and that is a total of 13 goals they have scored in their last four home games against them. Newcastle are actually on a seven-match winning streak against Preston in all competitions now, having shipped only three goals in that sequence. Preston are on a tough run of games and they have lost their last three on the bounce, two of those coming against play-off contenders Huddersfield and Leeds and the other was against Norwich who beat Brighton on Friday night. They have won just two of their last nine games played now in the league so are likely to give up chances, particularly on the road where they have won just one of their last nine games. Up in the anytime goalscorer market, Newcastle's Daryl Murphy is 11/10 favourite with Aleksander Mitrovic at 20/21 while for Preston, Jordan Hugill is shortest priced option at 11/4 with Callum Robinson at 15/4. Both teams to score at Bet365 in this one fetches a price of 4/5.

Newcastle v Preston Betting Odds

Newcastle 9/20, Draw 15/4, Preston 7/1

Newcastle v Preston Predictions

Newcastle Home Win: Newcastle should be fired up enough to take the win in this one. They have form against Preston, who have been poor on the road anyway and given the recent history, it may be worth backing the Magpies to win to nil.

Ipswich v Newcastle Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 17th April 2017

Championship Betting
Ipswich v Newcastle Betting Preview - Championship 17th April 3.00pm Newcastle slipped up in their last away game out at Sheffield Wednesday but they should have an easier time of things at Portman Road. The Magpies have won three of their last four visits there and with Ipswich looking out of sorts at the moment, there is a big shot at three points for the visitors in this one.

Ipswich v Newcastle Betting Tips

Ipswich are safe in the bottom half of the table and they have a decent air of resiliency about them because they have drawn a heck of a lot of games since the turn of the new year. Ipswich have picked up five draws in their last six home games in the Championship (W1) so they have been a hard side to beat at Portman Road. A 1-1 correct score at Bet365 for the game is trading at 6/1 because you can’t ignore all of those draws. The Tractor Boys lost 3-0 at St James Park earlier in the season against Newcastle and going up against the Magpies again, honestly, this is the toughest side that they will have faced for a long while in the second tier. Ipswich have scored one goal only in their last four home games against Newcastle. Therefore a Newcastle to win to nil wager at Bet365 has to have a little bit of appeal at a price of 15/8. Overall this season, the Tractor Boys have posted a W7 D10 L4 record at home and have lost just one of their last nine there. So this should be a real work out for the Magpies who will have to try and crack that resilience from Ipswich. Newcastle do have that decent form at Portman Road going through but their current away form in the league is a bit dodgy. They have failed to win any of their last three away from St James’ Park (D2 L1) in the Championship and have failed to score in two of those three games. But still, punters may expect them to snap back to winning away form in this one. Dwight Gayle is up as favourite in the Bet365 Anytime Goalscorer market at a price of 6/5. Ayoze Perez (2) and Matt Ritchie were the scorers against Ipswich earlier in the season. The Magpies have a good overall away record of W13 D4 L4 and with the title in sight, they are going to have to pull out the stops. Under 2.5 goals at Bet365 is trading at an appealing 9/10. You can back Newcastle to win by a one-goal margin for 13/5 as it probably won’t be by a bigger margin than that if they manage to bag the three points.

Ipswich v Newcastle Betting Odds

Newcastle 4/5, Draw1/5, Ipswich 15/4

Ipswich v Newcastle Predictions

Newcastle Away Win: The away form of Newcastle has been letting them down a little bit lately but they should find the going easy enough against Ipswich. The Magpies have decent form at Portman Road, look for it to continue.

Newcastle v Leeds Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th April 2017

Championship Betting
Newcastle v Leeds Betting Preview - Championship 14th April 7.45pm Tough game in store for both of these. Newcastle suddenly find themselves two points back of leaders Brighton and so need to pick up the pace against. Leeds have suffered some setbacks lately, but they are still looking on course for a playoff spot. Can the Whites get something out of their trip to St James Park? Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Newcastle v Leeds Betting Tips

A big game for both of these in the race to try and secure promotion to the top flight. Newcastle suffered a defeat at play-off hopeful Sheffield Wednesday last weekend and that was a blow to them because title rivals Brighton won their game to move two points clear of the Magpies at the top. Newcastle’s home form reads W13 D2 L5 this season in the Championship and they are on a two-match winning streak at home. But they have only won two of their last four on home soil (D1 L1). Newcastle went to Elland Road earlier in the season and secured a good 2-0 win and up in the Bet365 correct score market, a Newcastle 2-0 correct score is trading at a price of 13/2. The Magpies have won three of their last four at home against Leeds (L1), winning their last two home games against them with a clean sheet. Newcastle to win to nil at Bet365 is trading at a price of 13/8. There is a trend there as Newcastle have taken a clean sheet in four of their last five home wins. Newcastle are unbeaten in five games in all competitions against Leeds and Dwight Gayle is going as 20/21 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market. Leeds have Chris Wood as a 15/8 option in the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market. The Whites had put together a good seven-match unbeaten streak of form in the Championship, but they have gone W1 L2 in their last three. Last weekend they romped to a good 3-0 home win over Preston, but it is out on the road where their problems have been. Leeds are winless in their last five league games away from Elland Road and they have lost their last two, one of them at play-off rivals Reading. Both teams to score at Bet365 is running at a price of 10/11. Overall this season in the Championship, Leeds have posted a W8 D3 L9 away record and their home form far surpasses that of their away form. They are in the play-off zone with five games left of the regular season but they still have just a little more work to do to secure a shot at getting up to the top flight. Leeds have failed to score in their last three overall against Newcastle, including on their last two visits to St James Park.

Newcastle v Leeds Betting Odds

Newcastle 3/5, Draw 29/10, Leeds 9/2

Newcastle v Leeds Predictions

Newcastle home Win: The Magpies need a response to that loss at Sheffield Wednesday recently and they can deliver on home soil where they have won three of their last four against the Whites.

Sheffield Wednesday v Newcastle Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 8th April 2017

Championship Betting
Sheffield Wednesday v Newcastle Betting Preview - Championship 8th April 5.30pm A tough game ahead for Newcastle on Saturday evening in the Championship as they head to Hillsborough. The Owls are always a tough side to beat on home soil, but their overall form has slumped to where their playoff hopes are in jeopardy. Can Newcastle land themselves a big three points out on the road to keep up the pressure on Brighton in the title race? One of the top football betting products around is Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance which they offer on all matches listed in their sportsbook. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook. Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy other top features like each-way goalscorer odds, live streams and cash out options.

Sheffield Wednesday v Newcastle Betting Tips

Sheffield Wednesday are hanging onto the sixth spot in the Championship, just about because their form has been patchy. They have only gone W2 D2 L4 record in their last eight league games. Overall, they have been solid at Hillsborough this term where they have a W12 D2 L5 record on the board and they debate Newcastle 1-0 at St James’ Park earlier in the season as well. The Owls have suffered just the one loss in their last four at home against Newcastle and are unbeaten in their last three against them in all competitions (W2 D1) home and away. So this should be a pretty tight scrap between these two who both have promotion ambitions. In the Bet365 Correct score market, a Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 win fetches a price of 15/2 and this is likely to be a low-scoring game. Under 2.5 goals returns a price of 7/10. In the anytime goalscorer market, Fernando Forestieri and Jordan Rhodes are 15/8 options. Newcastle are unbeaten in their last seven games out on the road now in the Championship in a W4 D3 record. So pretty good there, but they have drawn their last two away games 0-0 and notably one of those at play-off contenders Reading. A 0-0 correct score at Bet365 being returned in this one is a price of 17/2. The Magpies are unbeaten in their last three visits to Hillsborough (W1 D2) so they may be trusted to avoid defeat. Dwight Gayle is trading as 6/5 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market and they have netted in in each of their last four visits to Sheffield Wednesday now, so you can picture this being a sternly contested game. There is a price of 4/5 at Bet365 on both teams to score. Wednesday would probably end up being the happier of the two with a point, but they are only two points above seventh-placed Fulham in the race for a top-six finish.

Sheffield Wednesday v Newcastle Betting Odds

Newcastle 11/8, Draw 23/10, Sheffield Wednesday 19/10

Sheffield Wednesday v Newcastle Predictions

Draw: Wednesday's home form has just gone a little shaky but they can hold in there against Newcastle who have failed to win their last two away games in the top-flight. The Owls did win at St James Park earlier in the season, so can hold their own.

Newcastle v Burton Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th April 2017

Championship Betting
Newcastle v Burton Betting Preview - Championship 5th April 7.45pm So Newcastle now have to respond once again in their epic battle with Brighton at the top of the Championship title. The Seagulls won on Tuesday night to haul their way back to the top of the pile. Will they be able to land the home win over the Brewers, who have won two of their last three games, but are still far too close to the relegation zone for comfort? One of the top football betting products around is Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance which they offer on all matches listed in their sportsbook. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook. Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy other top features like each-way goalscorer odds, live streams and cash out options.

Newcastle v Burton Betting Tips

Can Newcastle handle the pressure of having to play catch up to Brighton again? The Seagulls put a comfortable home win over Birmingham on the board on Tuesday night to go back to the top of the league. So Newcastle now need to win in response to that to get back up there. The Magpies have just stuttered a little bit lately in a W1 D2 L1 record in their last four played and that includes a home loss against Fulham. But in general over the course of the season, they have been strong at St James Park where they have recorded a W12 D2 L5 record this season and they have gone W6 D2 L1 in their last nine there. So a loss for them doesn’t appear to be on the cards. Newcastle landed a narrow win out at Burton earlier in the campaign and in the Bet365 correct score market a repeat Newcastle 2-1 scoreline is a price of 8/1. 68% of Newcastle's home games this season have seen more than two goals and over 2.5 goals in this one could be worth a flutter at 5/6. There has only been the two clean sheets in their last seven league matches now for the Magpies. Burton are just the four points clear of the drop zone going into their midweek action. So they would be happy with a point in his one. They have been doing much better lately having lost only one of their last six league games in a W2 D3 L1 record across their last six games played in the Championship. That’s not a bad return from them really but they haven’t done a lot of winning away from home this season. The Brewers have gone W3 D8 L9 on the road this season but to be fair to them, that has improved drastically with a W2 D3 L1 record in their last six on the road, so they are showing some fight. Maybe, with having collected four clean sheets in their last eight games they could scrap their way to a draw in this one? In the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market Newcastle's Dwight Gayle is trading at 4/5 as outright favourite with Aleksandar Mitrovic at even money. Top scorer for the Brewers this season is Lucas Aikins and he is a 5/1 anytime goalscorer option.

Newcastle v Burton Betting Odds

Newcastle 4/9, Draw 15/4, Burton 15/2

Newcastle v Burton Predictions

Newcastle Home Win: Look for the Magpies to edge this but only by a one goal margin, because the Brewers have been going pretty well lately. With the pressure on Newcastele to respond to Brighton’s win this week, they will probably just get over the line because they have been in good form on Tyneside.
/

Reading v Newcastle Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 7th March 2017

Championship Betting
Reading v Newcastle Betting Preview - Championship 7th March 8.00pm Newcastle's title credentials have really been put to the test over the last week or so having had to face Brighton and Huddersfield (second and third in the league respectively), but neither of them could stop the Magpies from winning. Now Newcastle have a firm grip at the top of the table and even though they face another tough away day at Reading, their form will have given backers plenty of confidence. Reading are in a solid position to bank a play off spot, but with recent back to back defeats against Brighton and Huddersfield it would be a surprise if they took a win on home soil over the high flying Magpies. Over at Betfair you can take some control of your sports accumulators with the Acca Edge product that they have. Just build yourself a qualifying accumulator with them and then you can add the Acca Edge to it. This means then that for a slight reduction in odds on the bet, you will have insurance on it, so if just one leg of the wager lets you down, you will get your lost stake refunded as cash from them. Go and register an account with online betting site Betfair and earn £30 worth of free bets as a welcome bonus from them.

Reading v Newcastle Betting Tips

Reading are the next ones tasked with trying to stop Newcastle's march towards the Championship title. Reading are well in the mix themselves in the Championship play off race and they start this game in fifth place. However, their output has dropped to just the two wins in their last six league matches but they are carrying the kind of home form that suggest that they are going to be in with a chance of snatching something out of this. Reading have posted a W12 D4 L2 record on home soil this season and are currently on a five match unbeaten streak in the Championship at home with a W4 D1 record. So they do carry some threat and they have suffered just the one loss in their last eleven home games in the second tier. Reading lost heavily by a 4-1 scoreline at St James Park earlier in the season and both teams to score in the game at Betfair is a price of 4/5. That has happened in each of the last four between these two. Over 2.5 goals at Betfair in this one is a price of even money and a decent bit of value because the last three between these at Reading have gone over the goal line. Reading have gone W2 D1 L1 at home in their last four against the Magpies. But Newcastle have won some big games recently out on the road and Reading do have the worst defensive record of the top six sides in the Championship heading into the next round of action. Yann Kermorgant is an 11/4 option for the Royals in the Betfair anytime goalscorer market. A Reading 2-1 correct score is running at a price of 12/1 while a Newcastle 2-1 option is at a price of 15/2. That scoreline has a bit of a trend as it has appeared in two of the last four between them and in two of the last four between them at Reading. The Magpies, after such a successful run of games have really taken full control of the Championship title race now. They have taken wins at Brighton and at Huddersfield in their last two games, both promotion contenders like Newcastle are, and they have earned a five point cushion to sit with now at the top of the table. So they still have to face yet another tough game in this sequence of matches, but they have gone unbeaten in their last ten but it hasn’t all been easy because they have taken just one clean sheet in their last five played now, so Reading will get their chances. Newcastle are W4 D1 in their last five away games in the Championship and are in good form and they have scored at least two goals in four of those five games. In the Betfair First Goalscorer market, Dwight Gayle is a 10/3 price with Daryl Murphy and Aleksandar Mitrovic at 15/8 in the anytime goalscorer market. Will the Magpies impress again out on the road?

Reading v Newcastle Betting Odds

Reading 13/5, Draw 12/5, Newcastle 21/20

Reading v Newcastle Predictions

The Magpies have been getting it done. Those are big wins that they have posted on the road at Brighton and Huddersfield recently and this trip therefore to Reading won’t be particularly daunting. So Rafa Benitez's men have more than proved themselves and they are worth backing to continue their streak. They are value in the match outright to just back to collect the three points and it may be worth backing both teams to score too.

Huddersfield v Newcastle Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 4th March 2017

Championship Betting
Huddersfield v Newcastle Betting Preview - Championship 4th March 5.30pm This should be a cracking game. In midweek, Newcastle fought back from a goal down to land a huge three points at title-challengers Brighton. That gave Newcastle back top spot at the expense of the Seagulls, but their tough work for the week isn’t done as they have to go back into battle with third placed Huddersfield. So no easy game for them. Huddersfield have been on cracking form and have started to put some pressure on the top two as well and they will be looking to land themselves what would be a huge three points for themselves in this one. Can the Terriers take down the Magpies to keep the title race wide open? Over at Betfair you can take some control of your sports accumulators with the Acca Edge product that they have. Just build yourself a qualifying accumulator with them and then you can add the Acca Edge to it. This means then that for a slight reduction in odds on the bet, you will have insurance on it, so if just one leg of the wager lets you down, you will get your lost stake refunded as cash from them. Go and register an account with online betting site Betfair and earn £30 worth of free bets as a welcome bonus from them.

Huddersfield v Newcastle Betting Tips

Well Huddersfield's hopes of pulling off a massive FA Cup upset by beating Manchester City went down in flames in midweek, but their hopes of making a promotion push to the Premier League remain very much alive. The Terriers go into the weekend sitting in third place and just the six points behind second-placed Brighton but with a game in hand now over the Seagulls. So if Huddersfield can keep their momentum going, they could make big strides closer to Brighton and Newcastle, the only two sides above them in the table. They are certainly carrying the form as they have gone W6 D1 in their last seven league games now and they have produced a fantastic run of W11 D3 L1 in their last fifteen league games since the start of December. It has been such good stuff from them and they are unbeaten in their last seven on home soil in the league as well, winning six of those. So they are going to give Newcastle a good run for their money you would imagine in this evening kick off. Huddersfield's overall home league form is W12 D2 L2 this season. The Terriers have a shot at completing the league double over Newcastle this season having taking a 2-1 win on Tyneside at the start of the term. 56% of Huddersfield's home games have gone over the 2.5 goal line this season, and because they have been shipping goals lately, there looks to be good value on the game going over 2.5 goals at Betfair for a price of 5/4. Well worth a punt is that one. This is the first league meeting between the two of them at Huddersfield since 1984 in the old English Division 2 which produced a 2-2 draw. In the Betfair correct score market for this one a repeat of the Huddersfield 2-1 correct score from earlier in the season at St James Park is a price of 9/1 with the shortest priced option in the market a 1-1 draw at 5/1. A good indicator of what a big threat the Terriers are, is their 3-1 home win over Brighton back at the start of February. In the Betfair anytime goalscorer market Nahki Wells and Elias Kachunga are 11/5 options. Both teams to score in the match at Betfair is a price of 5/6. Newcastle, albeit with a huge slice of luck, fought back from a goal down to win at Brighton in a top two clash in midweek. That sent them back to the top of the table but that good work could be undone if they lose this one and the Seagulls win on the weekend. It’s been a great battle between the Magpies and the Seagulls for the large part of the season at the top of the table, but Huddersfield are now closing in too. Newcastle are on a nine match match unbeaten streak in the Championship (W6 D3) so they are carrying good form, and wouldn’t be disappointed with a point probably. The last three between these at Huddersfield have been drawn and Newcastle are unbeaten with a W1 D3 record in their last four visits there. The visitors have Dwight Gayle at 6/4 and Aleksandar Mitrovic and Daryl Murphy both at the 9/4 quote in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. Can they build on those three points collected against Brighton in midweek, or will Huddersfield make further inroads towards the top two? This will be interesting.

Huddersfield v Newcastle Betting Odds

Huddersfield 7/4, Draw 23/10, Newcastle 6/4

Huddersfield v Newcastle Predictions

This should be a real highlight of the weekend, and Huddersfield are one of the few teams to have already beaten Newcastle this season. Even though their FA Cup dreams were ruined in midweek by Manchester City, the Terriers, with the league form that they have been showing are likely to have enough to stick in there in this one and the draw is stacks of value, which continues the trend between these two.

Brighton v Newcastle Betting Tips

The Seagulls have the chance to drive hard towards the Championship title with a win in this one. They lost 2-0 at Newcastle earlier in the season, but overall they have the form running against the Magpies in the head to head. Brighton have posted a W4 D2 L1 record in their last seven home and away against Newcastle. The Seagulls are unbeaten in four on home soil in all competitions against Newcastle as well with a W3 D1 record on the board and they have taken three clean sheets in their last four against them. Brighton to win to nil at Bet365 is trading at a price of 3/1. The Seagulls have conceded just the nine league goals at home this season and that’s 59% (10 of 17) of their fixtures on the south coast in which they have taken a clean sheet and that is 59% of their home wins being landed to nil. Brighton are unbeaten in their last five league games home and away (W3 D2). At home they have averaged over two goals per game and in the anytime goalscorer market, they have Glenn Murray at 7/4 and Tomer Hemed at 12/5. Sam Baldock back at 3/1 may be worth a punt as he has scored three goals in his last two games. The sheer home form of Brighton is immense having put up a W13 D3 L1 record (unbeaten in 14) and then there is that form over Newcastle going. It is well worth looking under 2.5 goals in this one at a price of 8/13 with Bet365. That has happened in the last two between these on the south coast. In the Bet365 correct score market a Brighton 1-0 option is a price of 6/1 and it looks as if it will be that close. A Brighton 2-0 is stretched out to a price of 10/1. They have shipped just the one goal in their last six on home soil in the league. Can Newcastle that complete the league double over Brighton this season? That would give them the advantage back in the title race. Newcastle have gone W2 D1 L1 in their last out on the road and overall this season have posted an impressive record of W11 D2 L3 away from St James Park. Newcastle have only conceded ten goals out on the road this season in the league and that is another indicator that this will be a low scoring game. Just 38% of their away games has gone over 2.5 goals this season. Back in the anytime goalscorer market Dwight Gayle is an 8/5 option with Aleksandar Mitrovic at 2/1. Newcastle have failed to score in their last two visits to Brighton and their 2-0 win over the Seagulls this season snapped a three match scoreless streak that they were on against them. Whichever side you are looking at backing to come through with three points in the bag, a draw at half time is a big possibility. A Draw/Brighton half time/full time option is a 9/2 option while a Draw/Newcastle option is at 11/2.

Brighton v Newcastle Predictions

We would have to side with Brighton here even though this is likely to be very tight and tense. They have been immense at home and even though Newcastle have been rock solid out on the road this season, home advantage may just tip things in favour of the Seagulls in this one. Because this is so close to call, there is just value running in the outright market to go and bank on them getting the points.
