What Trueform says for Newcastle vs Everton
Newcastle and Everton are following similar paths on our Trueform chart and we reckon they are hard to split ahead of Saturday’s clash.
The Magpies have won four straight Premier League games at St James’ Park, but the Toffees are coming off a couple of strong displays themselves.
Everything points to this being a close encounter, so 21/10 for a draw is our opening Newcastle vs Everton prediction.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle paid the price for a slow start when losing 2-0 at West Ham last weekend, with a second-half rally not enough to get them back into the game.
Rafael Benitez warned: “We are still in the relegation battle and have to approach every game like a final.
“We tried to tell the players, explain we have to do what we were doing when we were winning games, and we didn’t do that. We started with a lack of concentration.
“I am disappointed. Hopefully we will learn and not make the same mistake in the next nine games.”
The Magpies are only six points above the drop zone, but recent home wins over Cardiff, Manchester City, Huddersfield and Burnley have given them every chance of survival.
We think even sharing the spoils here would be a solid return, so 16/5 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time takes the eye from the Newcastle vs Everton odds.
Last Newcastle line-up: Dubravka, Schar, Lascelles, Manquillo, Lejeune, Ritchie, Hayden, Almiron, Longstaff, Rondon, Perez.
Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff is out as he faces up to three months on the sidelines with a cruciate ligament injury.
Jonjo Shelvey, Mohamed Diame and Ki Sung-yueng are vying to replace him, but goalkeeper Rob Elliot (back) and defender Ciaran Clark (knee) remain sidelined.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton’s form has been up and down all season but they are currently on a relative high after winning 3-0 at Cardiff and then holding Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at Goodison.
The Reds had the better chances in that derby stalemate, but the Toffees couldn’t be faulted for their effort or endeavour.
“I’m more pleased with the performance and more disappointed we haven’t got the win, as I thought they were there for us and we didn’t happen to get the job done,” said Seamus Coleman.
Everton have enjoyed some fine performances this season and now the aim will be to show they can achieve greater consistency.
Picking up another point on Tyneside would be seen as a step in the right direction, by our reckoning.
It was 1-1 when these teams met on Merseyside in early December and 21/4 for a repeat of that scoreline completes our Newcastle vs Everton betting tips.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Keane, Zouma, Digne, Coleman, Sigurdsson, Gueye, Schneiderlin, Bernard, Walcott, Calvert-Lewin.
Phil Jagielka is an injury doubt for Everton after missing a couple of training sessions this week. Leighton Baines is definitely still out with rib and back complaints.
West Ham 2-0 NEWCASTLE
EVERTON 0-0 Liverpool
