Newcastle v Southampton Prediction & Betting Tips, 10th March 20188th March 2018 / lee
Newcastle v Southampton Premier League Preview, 10th March 3.00pm
Both Newcastle and Southampton are in considerable trouble still, sitting just outside of the drop zone and neither of them are in any kind of winning form either. Newcastle are a point better off than the Saints are it would be huge for them if they could open up a four-point gap over Southampton. But the Saints have been proving hard to beat lately.
Newcastle v Southampton Betting Odds*
Newcastle 6/5, Southampton 15/8, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken at 4:25 a.m. on March 6th, 2018)
Newcastle News and Form
The Magpies are only two points clear of the drop zone heading into the weekend, sitting fifth from bottom and one of the teams beneath them are Southampton. So this would be a big coup if Newcastle could collect maximum points in this one. The Magpies won their last home game, a surprise 1-0 victory over Manchester United. That was just their fourth home win of the season though and it snapped an eight-match winless streak that they were on at St James’ Park this season in the top flight. Just 29% of Newcastle’s home games this season have made it above two goals and therefore under 2.5 goals at bet365 looks a good place to start for 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:33 p.m. on March 7th, 2018). Newcastle are averaging less than a goal per game at home this season with just the twelve netted in fourteen fixtures. They have failed to score in 43% of their home games this season but are at least on a three-match scoring streak on home soil in the league. 67% of their home goals have been after the halftime break.
Southampton News and Form
Southampton need a win in this one to claw themselves above Newcastle and make a move in survival. They have only lost one of their last seven league games (W1 D5) but it has been those missed opportunities in drawn matches which is keeping them down. Like in their 0-0 home draw with Stoke last weekend. Three of their last four league draws have been by a 1-1 scoreline and in the bet365 correct score market the 1-1 option is at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:33 p.m. on March 7th, 2018). The Saints have only won twice away from home this season, one coming recently out at bottom side West Brom. Southampton are unbeaten in four on the road (W1 D3) but again there is a lot of draws recently from them. Adding to the expectancy of a low scoring game is that Southampton have averaged only exactly a goal per game away from home this season but they have scored and conceded in each of their last three games away from St Mary’s in the top flight. With them currently being beaten in four on the road, they should at least be good for a point in this one.
Newcastle v Southampton Head to Head
There have been a lot of high scoring games between these two recently actually with each of the last five all going over 2.5 goals. There have been two 2-2 draws in the last three league meetings between them, including this season’s earlier clash at St Mary’s. Southampton are W3 D2 up from the last five Premier League meetings with Newcastle and are unbeaten in three visits (W1 D2) to Tyneside.
Who will win – Newcastle v Southampton Predictions
Hard to pick a winner out of these two as they are both in similar kind of form. Just because the Saints have been so hard to beat lately, it is worth backing the draw in this one.
