Newcastle v Arsenal Betting Tips – Premier League 15th April 1.30pm

This should be a pretty decent scrap on Tyneside between two sides who have found a good bit of form. Arsenal are running along on a three-match winning streak and are putting pressure on Chelsea for a fifth-place finish in the league. The Magpies though have also put together a three-match winning streak and will probably give as good as they get on Sunday.

Newcastle News and Form

Newcastle are on a three-match winning streak of form at the moment and that is the second time this season that they have achieved that. They are well safe from relegation now and a point out of this at least would make further sure of that. Newcastle’s current winning streak has been built against Southampton, Huddersfield and Leicester and so this will be a tougher game for them. But Newcastle are on a good sequence of home form with three wins in a row at St James Park and they are unbeaten in six at home (W3 D3). Among those wins was a 1-0 success over Manchester United in mid-February. Five of Newcastle’s six home wins this season have been with a clean sheet. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 is a good 43/40 odds option* (Betting Odds taken at 3:55 p.m. on April 10th, 2018) just because the Magpies look as if they could hold on defensively at the moment. The Magpies have taken four clean sheets in their last six at home. They have not come up with a high return of goals in their games, averaging just one per game at home, but they are on a five-match scoring streak there. They have conceded under a goal per game on average, so again, this may not be a free-scoring fixture.

Arsenal News and Form

Arsenal are ticking along on a three-match winning streak in the league. Those wins were all at home though and they don’t actually have away from behind them. They are on a four-match losing streak away from the Emirates in the top flight and their most recent loss was a 2-1 default at Brighton. They have only produced a W3 D4 L8 record away from the Emirates this season which is really poor by their standards. For their away campaign, the Gunners have rustled up on the sixteen goals in fifteen games so that just again points to his being close. In the bet365 correct score market the 1-1 draw is a nice 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:55 p.m. on April 10th, 2018) option to consider. Two-thirds of Arsenal’s goals scored and two-thirds of their goals conceded away from home this season have all been in the second half of fixtures. The Gunners have been level 0-0 at half time in seven of their away games. They have not managed to earn a clean sheet in any of their last six away from the Emirates, running on a five-match winless streak.


Newcastle v Arsenal Head to Head

Arsenal have great head to head from going against Newcastle. They have won their last three against them in the league all by a 1-0 scoreline. Overall they are on a ten match winning streak against Newcastle and six of those have been to nil. Seven of those ten victories in the sequence were won by a one-goal margin only by the Gunners. Arsenal are on a four-match winning streak at St James’ Park in the league.

Newcastle v Arsenal Predictions

Newcastle to win: Nothing wrong with having a pop on Newcastle here. They will be up for this and a little bit fresher than the Gunners will be as well. They have the home form to pull out the three points.
