Newcastle News and Form
It has been an immensely difficult season for Newcastle, but their fixture list hasn’t helped their cause. They have already faced five of the league’s big six in their opening eight matches. That has played a part in them still being on the hunt for their first win of the season. They have collected just the two points so far in two draws on the road. So there has not been any joy for them so far at St James’ Park. The Magpies have scored in three of their four home games, exactly one goal in each of those (which were all 2-1 losses).
Five of the six losses that Newcastle have suffered this season have been by a one-goal margin. Just before the international break, they blew a 2-0 lead at Old Trafford against Manchester United to lose 3-2. Newcastle have conceded exactly two goals in each home game this term. But this now kicks off a run of much easier fixtures for them. This is where they need to make it count and a Newcastle 1-0 correct score is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:01 pm). Each of their three games this season not against the big six sides have all ended under 2.5 goals so that is the way to go for Newcastle v Brighton betting tips.
Brighton News and Form
Brighton are six points better off than Newcastle are so this would be a fantastic opportunity to keep the Magpies further off their backs. The Seagulls have won twice this season in the top flight in a W2 D2 L4 record. Tehri second win of the season came just before the international break when they earned a good 1-0 home success over West Ham. Both of their league wins this term happened at home by a one-goal margin.
While their home form is pretty solid, they have not had a lot of joy out on their travels. They are just D1 L3 away from home this term and they have failed to score in three of their four road games. Newcastle to win to nil is at 12/5 odds and may be worth a flutter* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:01 pm). In two games against sides currently sat in the bottom five this season, the Seagulls drew both of them (Southampton and Fulham).
Newcastle v Brighton Head to Head
There were low scoring games between these last season with a 0-0 at St James’ Park following a 1-0 home win for Brighton. Those are the only two previous Premier League meetings. Newcastle are W2 D1 L1 in their last four league matches against Brighton now and have not conceded in their last two at home against the Seagulls.
Who will win – Newcastle v Brighton Predictions
The Magpies so desperately need a win to start turning the corner with their form. There has to be a good chance here on home soil against the Seagulls who have produced little on the road. Newcastle to win.
