What Trueform says for Newcastle vs Crystal Palace
Newcastle and Crystal Palace are evenly matched on overall form this season but United have to get the nod on their recent home results.
The Magpies are seeking a sixth straight Premier League victory at St James’ Park, with their previous victims at this venue including Manchester City.
That sequence makes the hosts hard to oppose at 3/2 for our opening Newcastle vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle returned from the international break with a 2-0 loss at Arsenal but will now look to close in on Premier League safety with another home victory against the Eagles.
Defender Paul Dummett told NUFC TV: “We have been in good form at home with the wins we’ve had.
“We know it is going to be a difficult game, they have got some really good players, but we will be ready.
“We will work hard in training and hopefully we can get the sixth win, get ourselves safe in the Premier League and push on with some other good results to finish strongly, like we did last season.”
Salomon Rondon has scored in four of his last nine appearances for United and also netted for Venezuela in a 3-1 triumph over Argentina last month.
Looking at the Newcastle vs Crystal Palace odds, he is an obvious choice to break the deadlock at 7/2.
Last Newcastle line-up: Dubravka, Dummett, Lascelles, Lejeune, Yedlin, Diame, Ritchie, Hayden, Almiron, Rondon, Perez.
Fabian Schar will return to the Newcastle squad after suspension. DeAndre Yedlin, Mohamed Diame, Isaac Hayden and Joselu will all undergo late fitness tests on knocks, but Sean Longstaff (knee) is the only confirmed absentee.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace climbed one point and a place above Newcastle when winning 2-0 at home to Huddersfield last Saturday, but then went down by the same scoreline at Tottenham’s new stadium on Wednesday.
The Eagles never looked like springing a surprise victory to rain on Spurs’ parade but did frustrate their hosts in the first half.
Son Heung-min eventually ended the resistance on 55 minutes and Christian Eriksen made it safe 10 minutes from time.
Roy Hodgson said: “It has obviously been a great evening for them but we certainly played our part; no surrender and didn’t make life easy for them.”
That was the first time in 16 matches that Palace had drawn a blank in front of goal, so we do expect them to be more positive on Tyneside.
However, that just makes 4/1 for a home win and both teams to score worth adding to our Newcastle vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Schlupp, Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Milivojevic, Kouyate, McArthur, Zaha, Batshuayi.
Hodgson has reported no fresh injury problems, but defender Mamadou Sakho remains unavailable as he continues to recover from knee surgery.
