Newcastle News and Form – Can Newcastle extend good home form?

The Magpies had a three-match unbeaten streak of form ruined last weekend with a 1-0 loss at Burnley. They have, however, remained unbeaten in their last seven at St James’ Park and have won two of their last three played there (D1). The overall home form of Newcastle is W3 D4 L1 so this could be a favourable fixture for them. There has been a lack of goals from Newcastle, who have scored only 9 in their 8 home games. But defensively they have been solid, averaging under a goal against per home game.

Newcastle 1-0 Correct Score
6/1

Ladbrokes

Just 38% of league games at St James’ Park have gone over 2.5 goals. It has been 2 clean sheets at home this season from Newcastle. There is a trend with their wins. Five of their six recorded in the league, and all three at home, have been by a one-goal margin. Just twice this season have they scored the opening goal of a home game, so considering they have suffered just one home defeat, shows some grit. Can the Magpies get themselves another good haul of home points?

Crystal Palace News and Form – Can Palace win at Newcastle?

The Eagles looked on course for a defeat at home against Brighton on Monday, before Wilfried Zaha saved a point for them with a stunning late equaliser. That moved Crystal Palace onto a four-match unbeaten streak of form (W2 D2). The goal that they shipped against Brighton is the only goal that the Eagles have conceded in their last four league games now. Away from home Palace have suffered only one loss in their last five (W2 D2). So they themselves are in decent shape.

Like Newcastle, Palace haven’t been prolific in front of goal. They are only averaging a goal per away games this season. Interestingly, Palace have not lost any of their four away games played against sides starting the weekend 10th or lower in the table. Each of their last four games have gone under 2.5 goals and they have only been losing at half time in two road games (W2 D4). There are only three sides in the division, who start the weekend with a better defensive record than that of Palace’s.

Newcastle vs Crystal Palace Tips & Odds

Under 1.5 goals at 7/4
Home win at 7/5

Newcastle vs Crystal Palace Predictions

Newcastle to win: The home side may be able to shade this. Crystal Palace looked badly off their game against Brighton, and the Magpies have produced some decent home form lately. A home win in a low scoring game looks a good proposition.
