Newcastle v West Brom Premier League Preview, 28th April 3.00pm
West Brom collected a surprise point by earning a home draw against Liverpool on the weekend having come back from 2-0 down in the game. That continued their recent flourish of spirit and organisation. It has done little for their survival chances though and the Baggies could be relegated this weekend still. Newcastle will have had less rest going into this one after facing up to Everton on Monday night.
Newcastle v West Brom Betting Odds*
Newcastle 4/5, Draw 12/5, West Brom 15/4* (Betting Odds taken at 6:25 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018)
Newcastle News and Form
The Magpies suffered a 1-0 loss at Everton on Monday night which snapped a great run of four straight wins that they were on. At least their great home form stays intact and they are on a four-match winning streak at St James’ Park and have stayed unbeaten in seven there (W4 D3). Overall this season Newcastle have a W7 D4 L6 record at home and four of their last five home wins have been with a clean sheet. Newcastle to win to nil at bet365 is at 15/8 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:25 p.m. on April 24th, 2018). The Magpies have done pretty well defensively on home soil to back that up, with them having conceded under a goal per game on average, taking a clean sheet in 35% of home games. Just 35% of their fixtures have gone above 2.5 goals at home this season. They have scored in each of their last six home league games and have totalled 18 goals in 17 home fixtures. So this have every indication that it is going to be a low scoring affair.
West Brom News and Form
If the West Brom who have collected five points in their last three games would have turned up earlier this year, they may not have ended up in the relegation mess that they are. After taking a shock win at Old Trafford recently, they followed up that great result with a 2-2 home draw against Liverpool last weekend, fighting back for a point with two goals in the last ten minutes at the Hawthorns. So they have been playing with some character finally and the win at Old Trafford on April 15th snapped a four-match losing streak that they were on away from home. Their away record reads just W2 D4 L11 for the season though which is pretty terrible still, but they are looking to finish the season with a bang at least. The Baggies have returned only the nine goals away from home this season. In the bet365 correct score market a Newcastle 1-0 and the 1-1 draw are the shortest-priced options at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:25 p.m. on April 24th, 2018). 67% of the goals that West Brom have managed away from home this season have come in the second half of matches. They have also conceded 72% of their away goals in the second half of away matches.
Newcastle v West Brom Head to Head
There was an exciting 2-2 draw at the Hawthorns when the two met back at the end of November. That snapped a five-match sequence between the two of games finishing under 2.5 goals. From the last five Premier League meetings Newcastle have a slight edge with a W2 D2 L1 record on the board. They are W2 D2 from their last four home league meetings against the Baggies.
Who will win – Newcastle v West Brom Predictions
Newcastle may be able to sneak the win in this one. They have pretty decent home form at the moment and even though the Baggies are battling along with a bit of pride at the moment, they may find the Magpies too much to handle. Home win.
