Crystal Palace v Newcastle Prediction & Betting Tips, 4th February 20182nd February 2018 / lee
Crystal Palace v Newcastle Premier League Preview, 4th February 2.15pm
Palace played out a predictable draw at West Ham in midweek, but that keeps them going along nicely on the path to survival. They will fancy their chances at home soil on the weekend against a Newcastle side who are two points and just a place beneath them. Once again the Toon Army were upset that very little investments to the club were made in the transfer window, but an away win here would at least ease their concerns if they could get it.
Crystal Palace v Newcastle Betting Odds*
Crystal Palace 21/20, Draw 9/4, Newcastle 11/4* (Betting Odds taken on February 1st, 2018 at 1:05 a.m.)
Crystal Palace News and Form
Palace are still well on track for survival this season after picking up a point at West Ham in midweek. They have lost just two games since mid-November and both of those were losses against Arsenal. The Eagles have lost only one of their last nine home games in a great stretch of form from them. In their last home game they took down Burnley 1-0 and if they end up getting the better of Newcastle in this one, it will probably be in a low scoring game as well and a Crystal Palace 1-0 correct score at William Hill fetches appealing odds of 6/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 1st, 2018 at 2:05 a.m.). Crystal Palace have found the back of the net in each of their last four league games and on home soil they have returned 15 goals in their twelve games. After their difficult start to the season, they are actually running seven points better off than they were at this same stage of the season last term. Roy Hodgson deserves plenty of credit for his work there. Palace have conceded 72% of their home goals in the first half of matches, and Wilfried Zaha is their top scorer at home this season with three. Avoiding defeat would be another good step towards staying up.
Newcastle News and Form
There is a lot of frustration circling Newcastle because of the reluctance of the owners to inject money into the club. Boss Rafa Benitez is working with what he has, and he has guided them to an improved W1 D3 L1 record in their last five games. They did manage to get Leicester forward Islam Slimani in on loan until the end of the season after being linked to a move for Daniel Sturridge, who went to West Brom. Newcastle have won two of their last three road games as a positive, a short winning streak which was snapped by a 3-1 defeat at Manchester City in their last away game. The Magpies have won just three times on their travels then this season and they have conceded an average of 1.7 goals per away game. They have tallied just the twelve goals in their twelve easy games, failing to score in a third of their fixtures away from St James’ Park. They have scored in each of their last three away games so maybe they could rustle up something but with either way, under 2.5 goals at William Hill appeals at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 1st, 2018 at 1:05 a.m.)
Crystal Palace v Newcastle Head to Head
Newcastle have won their last two Premier League games 1-0 against the Eagles and they will be hoping that continues. The Magpies have some good head to head form against the Eagles actually having lost just one of their last fourteen games against them in all competitions. That’s a strong record but they took a 5-1 hammering in their last visit to Selhurst Park back in 2014. Palace are unbeaten in their last two league home games against the Magpies.
Who will win – Crystal Palace v Newcastle Predictions
Newcastle have been doing better lately, but Crystal Palace look the favourites to win this. This is a great chance for them to extend their buffer between themselves and the relegation zone. The Magpies may not have enough to take anything away from this game.
