Newcastle start the weekend seven points clear of the drop zone so should be comfortably safe at the end of the season. Southampton have done a brilliant job lately as well of easing some relegation concerns. They are five points clear of the drop zone heading into the weekend. Read our Newcastle v Southampton betting tips for more.

The Magpies got a great three points in an away win at Leicester last time out. On home soil they were on a fantastic five-match winning streak of form before toppled in their last home fixture, which was against Crystal Palace. The overall home form of Newcastle this season is W7 D1 L9. Of their home defeats this season, six of them have happened against teams currently in the top eight. So that may put them in decent stead for this one against the Saints who are at the other end of the table.
Newcastle have been a bit of a goal-shy team this season, and they have scored 19 goals in their 17 home fixtures. But they haven’t done all that bad at the back really. Three of their last five wins on home soil have been with a clean sheet. They have tallied a clean sheet in 29% of their home fixtures this season. Both teams have scored in just 41% of Newcastle’s home games. Four of Newcastle’s seven home wins have been by a one-goal margin and they have scored 63% of their home goals in the second period of matches.
There was a 0-0 draw at St Mary’s between them earlier this season
Newcastle are undefeated in three against Southampton
Newcastle won this corresponding fixture last season 3-0
The Saints have won only one of their last fourteen trips to St James’ Park
The Saints ran out 3-1 winners at home over Wolves last time out, which was a big lift for them. That is three wins in their last four games played now and then once exception in that sequence was a defeat against Liverpool. Southampton did win their last away game, which was out at Brighton, but they were winless in three before that (D1 L2). The Saints have managed to pick up just the four away successes this season in the top flight.
But their away form has improved over the second half of the season going D2 D2 L2 in their six road games in 2019. Their overall away form is W4 D3 L9 this season, just to show how much their away form has picked up. The Saints average exactly one goal per away game this season, but they have conceded heavily at an average of 1.75 per fixture. Home and away in the league, the Saints have scored in their last six games and they will be backing themselves to have enough to at least avoid defeat in this one.
You would imagine that neither of these would really be disappointed with a drawn outcome here. It could nudge them both further towards safety. It’s not a game either would want to lose on the other hands, so this may just be a stalemate. Draw.

The Foxes have been moving along in nice form in the top flight having now put together a four-match winning streak. Newcastle meanwhile have just hit a bit of a blockage having suffered back to back defeats in the league and they have just one win in their last five. Read our Leicester v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 9th, 2019 at 11:32 p.m.)
The Foxes are now on a four-match winning streak after posting a 4-1 success at Huddersfield last weekend. They have won five of their last six games in the top flight, scoring at least two goals in each of those five victories. So they are shaping up well and at home, they are W7 D2 L7. Leicester are on a three-match winning streak at the King Power at the moment and this season they have averaged 1.3 goals per game there. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last three played on home soil.
The Foxes have earned a clean sheet in 25% of their home games but they have taken just one in their last eight at the King Power. Five of their seven home successes this season have been by a margin of two goals exactly. Leicester have scored in each of their last eight games, home and away. They have, however, only opened the scoring in 5 of 16 home fixtures. They have not been involved in a home draw in ten matches now. Jamie Vardy has three goals in his last two games.
The Foxes were 2-0 winners at St James’ Park earlier this season
Leicester have won five of the last six meetings
Newcastle won this corresponding fixture last season
Both teams have scored in just two of the last ten meetings
The Magpies suffered a loss against Crystal Palace last weekend, going down 1-0 at home. That is back to back league defeats without having scored for Newcastle now. Newcastle’s survival has pretty much been based on their home form. They are just a W2 D7 L7 this season out on their travels. Newcastle have not won any of their last eight games away from St James’ Park. Newcastle have failed to score in three of their last five road fixtures. They have struggled all season in front of goal away from home.
Newcastle have produced just 12 goals in their 16 away games. 75% of those were scored in the first half of games. Only 38% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals this season. They have conceded at an average of 1.4 goals per road fixture. They are without a clean sheet in eight on the road and they have shipped at least two goals in each of their last three away from home. 64% of Newcastle’s away goals conceded have been in the second period of fixtures. Only the current bottom three have scored fewer league goals than Newcastle this season.
Leicester seem to be in good enough shape at the moment to warrant backing to go and get themselves a good three points in this one. They should have enough punch going forward to outscore the visitors. Home win.

The Magpies had a setback last Monday as they lost at Arsenal. They do look to have done enough already to not be worried over relegation. The Eagles picked up a good home win on the weekend and they will be a threat in this as they have produced some fairly decent away form as of late. Read our Newcastle v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 2/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 2nd, 2019 at 11:33 p.m.)
Newcastle suffered a 2-0 reverse at Arsenal on Monday night, but still, they haven’t been in bad shape lately at all. The Magpies are W3 D1 L2 in their last six and each of the three wins in that sequence were at St James’ Park. Their home record for the season stands at W7 D1 L8 at the moment and they are on a five-match winning streak there. In their home games, this season Newcastle have returned a total of an average of 1.2 goals per home game. They taken a clean sheet in 31% of their home fixtures.
Four of their seven home wins have been by a one-goal margin and they have netted in each of their last five home games. Home and away, they have not managed a clean sheet in any of their last five. Going back to their scoring streak at home, they have scored at least two goals in each of their last five EPL games at St James’ Park. 63% of their home goals have cropped up in the second period of fixtures. The Magpies have only scored the opening goal in 5 of their 16 EPL home games.
There was a 0-0 draw in the first meeting this season
There have now been back to back draws between the Magpies and Eagles
Newcastle are undefeated in four against Palace (W2 D2)
Newcastle have won three of their last four home games against Palace 1-0 (D1)
The Eagles suffered a 2-0 loss at Tottenham in midweek which leagues them at W3 L3 in their last six league games, home and away. It has been form good enough to put some distance between themselves and the drop zone. Palace were on a two-match winning streak away from home, having beaten Leicester and Burnley, before that loss against Spurs on Wednesday. That is just one loss in their last four away games then for the Eagles which is part of an overall away record of W6 D2 L8 record on their travels this season.
The Eagles have netted 25 away goals this season, which is an average of 1.5 goals per away game. Both teams have scored in 62% of their away games, Palace picking up a clean sheet in 25% of their road games. Four of their six wins away from home have been by a margin of at least two goals. Crystal Palace have actually done well because they have been leading at halftime in eight of their away games. Before their blank against Spurs, they were on an eleven match scoring streak in the Premier League. They are without a clean sheet in five on the road though.
These two are likely to be evenly matched. The Magpies have done alright on home soil lately while Palace have the away form. Neither would likely be disappointed with picking up a point in this one.

The Gunners got a great lift in their hopes of a top-four finish as they defeated Manchester United in their last league outing. That continued a strong showing of form from them. They will be on the hunt for another good three points as they welcome Newcastle to North London on Monday evening. Read our Arsenal v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 24th, 2019 at 10:14 p.m.)
The Gunners collected a good 2-0 home success over Manchester United in their last league fixture. That moved them on to a five-match undefeated streak of league form, with a win in four of those. Their home form has been highly impressive as they are on a nine-match winning streak at the Emirates in the top flight. Overall the Gunners are W13 D2 L1 on home soil in the top flight this season. Arsenal have been consistent in front of goal, with at least two goals scored in each of their last seven home league fixtures. They have scored 68% of their home goals in the second half of matches.
Arsenal have scored in each and every league home game and they have been so defensively strong too. They have only conceded an average of 0.75 goals per home game. So even with their good scoring form, less than half of games at the Emirates have made it above 2.5 goals. Three of their last five home wins have been by a 2-0 scoreline. Arsenal have picked up a two-goal margin win in 9 of their 13 victories. The Gunners have opened the scoring in 11 of their 16 home fixtures.
Arsenal were 2-1 winners at St James’ Park in September
The Gunners are on a six-match winning straight at home in the EPL against Newcastle
Each of Arsenal’s last five wins over Newcastle have been by a one-goal margin
The last two between these in North London ended in a 1-0 home win
Newcastle have done well over the second half of the season to keep the relegation zone at a somewhat comfortable distance. The Magpies have won three of their last five games (D1 L1) however each of the wins in that sequence were on home soil. Newcastle’s away form for the season doesn’t make for pretty reading really. They have only won twice on their travels (D7 L6). Newcastle have lost all five of their away games played against sides currently sat in the top six.
Scoring goals has been a problem for Newcastle away from home because they do take a cautious approach to things. The Magpies have failed to score in two of their last four-way from St James’ Park. 75% of the goals which they have come up with away from home have been scored in the first period of fixtures. Just 40% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals as Newcastle have taken a clean sheet in 27% of their road fixtures. Newcastle have no clean sheet in seven road games. They have been level at half time in 9 of 15 away fixtures.
All the stats really point to a home win in this one. Arsenal are so strong on home soil and are scoring so consistently. It’s likely that they will have too much for a Newcastle side who have only won twice on their travels. Arsenal to win to nil.

The Cherries earned a much-needed win last weekend in the league to snap a long winless streak that they were on. Will they be able to follow it up on home as they play host to Newcastle? The Magpies have done much better lately having taken three wins in their last four played. Read our Bournemouth v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8.10 p.m.)
Bournemouth earned a 2-0 win at Huddersfield last weekend. That was a relief for them after having taken just one point from their previous five. The Cherries have posted a W7 D4 L4 record on home soil this season and they have only lost one of their last six there. The loss in that sequence was in their last home game, a 1-0 reverse against Manchester City. Bournemouth have averaged 1.7 goals per home game as well this season with 60% of fixtures at the Vitality going over 2.5 goals.
In total, they have taken a clean sheet in a third of home games and have been trialling at the break only once on home soil this term. The blank against Manchester City snapped a five-match scoring streak of form that they were on at home. The Cherries have conceded 63% of their home goals in the second half of fixtures. Bournemouth have opened the scoring in nine of their fifteen home fixtures.
Newcastle took a 2-1 home win over the Cherries earlier this season
Four of the last five meetings have produced an away win
Things are even at two wins each and a draw in the last five meetings
Half of the last six meetings have ended in a draw
The Magpies have won three of their last five league games, suffering just two losses in their last eight. So they have eased relegation concerns well. Their away form is poor though with just a W2 D6 L6 return for the season. They have taken just the one point from their last four games away from home and are winless in six on their travels. Just 36% of their road game shave gone over 2.5 goals.
Newcastle’s lack of scoring has played a part in that as they magpies have just 10 road goals all season. Eight of those ten goals have been scored in the first half of matches. There has be no clean sheet for Newcastle in six away games. They have been level at half time in nine of their away games. To their credit, only five teams have a better defensive record in the league than they have.
Newcastle can make a nuisance of themselves, but we fancy the Cherries to get over the line. They have done alright at home this season and should be able to grab the victory, likely by a one-goal margin.

Everton frustrated their rivals Liverpool in last weekend’s Merseyside derby. That was a good point for them. They head out on the road to the northeast on the weekend to face Newcastle. The Magpies had some positive form snapped last weekend with a loss against West Ham. Read our Newcastle v Everton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on 7th March 2019 at 6:07 p.m.)
Newcastle had strung together a good three-match undefeated streak of form. That came undone last weekend in a 2-0 loss at West Ham. They are W4 D1 L2 in their last seven which is positive from them. Overall the Magpies are at W6 D1 L8 for the season on home soil, and they have produced some fantastic home results recently. They are on a four-match winning streak at St James’ Park. One of those successes was a victory over Manchester City as well. Newcastle have only conceded one goal in their last four home games.
Newcastle have produced 16 goals in their home campaign this season so it has not been a particularly high output from them. However, they have scored at least two goals in each of their last four Premier League home fixtures. In fact, of the 16 home goals scored in total, nine of them have been produced in their last four home games. Newcastle have returned a clean sheet in 33% of their home fixtures. Each of their last five games, home and away have ended up finishing under the 2.5 goalline. There are only two sides currently in the top flight who have produced fewer the goals this season and Newcastle have.
There was a 1-1 tie between them at Goodison Park in December
Four of the last five meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
Newcastle are winless in six EPL games against the Toffees
Everton have three clean sheets in their last four visits to St James’ Park
Everton stuck to their guns last weekend and produced a 0-0 home draw against rivals Liverpool in the Merseyside derby. While they did hold their ground defensively, they did not look much of a threat going forward. That result leaves Everton at just W1 D1 L3 in their last five league games. They have only managed to score in one of their last four, home and away. Out on their travels, this season in the top flight Everton are at W4 D3 L7 this season. In their last six road fixtures, Everton have produced a mixed return of three wins and three defeats so there has been little consistency from them.
Both teams have scored in just two of Everton’s last ten league games, home and away. Everton have produced an average of 1.3 goals per road games this season and that is the exact rate at which they have conceded away from Goodison Park as well. Everton have been level at the halftime break in 18 of the 29 league fixtures this term. Still, even with that high record, Everton have not had an away draw in any of their last eight on the road. The goals which they have conceded on their travels 72% of them have been after the halftime break. Gylfi Sigurdsson has scored three of their last five league goals.
There is nothing particularly special or threatening about Everton at the moment. Given that Newcastle have been watertight at the back on home soil, the Magpies may be able to extend their home winning form. Home win.

The Hammers are still pushing towards landing a top half of the table finish this season. They have been pretty solid on home soil lately as well. Newcastle have been enjoying a much better time of things lately and have started to pull well away from the drop zone. Read our West Ham v Newcastle betting tips for more.
West Ham evens
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 6:06 p.m.)
The Hammers earned a solid 3-1 home win over Fulham in their last home fixture. That took them out to a four-match undefeated streak of home form currently. They have lost just one of their last seven (W3 D2) on home soil, so have been fairly reliable, even though they have a clean sheet in just 14% of home games. West Ham have a W4 D1 L1 record against sides currently in the bottom half of the table this season on home soil, which has been a good return.
Their overall home record is W6 D3 L5. West Ham have scored 21 and have conceded 20 home goals this season. 50% of their home games incidentally have finished over 3.5 goals. Four of the six home wins that they have recorded have been by a two-goal margin. They are currently on a four-match scoring streak at home. Of the goals which they have produced at home in the top flight this season, 67% of them have been after the halftime break. Surprisingly West Ham have only opened the scoring in five home games.
West Ham were 3-0 winners over Newcastle earlier this season
Newcastle were on a three-match winning streak prior to that against the Hammers
West Ham have won two of their last three home games against the Magpies
Each of the last four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Newcastle took a win over Burnley on Tuesday night to give them back to back Premier League wins. They have really been upping their form lately with a W4 D1 L1 record in their last six played. It is has to be noted that each of the wins in that sequence though have been on home soil.
This season on their travels they are just W2 D6 L5. Their two away successes were both against sides currently in the bottom six in the table. On the flip side, each of their away losses have been against the current top-six. Newcastle have managed just the 10 away goals this season. Only 38% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals.
The Magpies have earned a clean sheet in 31% of home games. The Magpies have also been level at the break in 9 of 13 away games. Newcastle have scored 80% of their away goals in the first half of matches, conceding 69% of away goals in the second half of games.
Newcastle can keep the score down in this fixture and with a bit of renewed confidence, they should be able to avoid defeat. West Ham are in some decent home form and don’t look like losing, so the draw looks the best option.

The Magpies did the job at home against bottom side Huddersfield on the weekend to bolster their chances of staying up. They may get a trickier challenge here against the in-form Burnley who sprung a surprise win over Spurs on the weekend. Read our Newcastle v Burnley betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 24th, 2019 at 7:43 p.m.)
Newcastle produced a 2-0 home win over Huddersfield on the weekend. There has been a big improvement in their form as they are now W3 D1 L1 in their last five top-flight games played. They have put together a three-match winning streak at home as well, scoring at least two goals in each of those victories. Their win on the weekend leaves them at W5 D1 L8 on home soil this season. The Magpies have only produced the 14 home goals this season.
None of their home games have made it over 3.5 goals. Newcastle have taken three clean sheets in their last five league games at St James’ Park. They tallied a clean sheet in 29% of their home games. Of the home goals that they have produced 64% of them after the half time break in games. Bottom side Huddersfield are the only side in the division to have scored fewer league goals than Newcastle have.
Newcastle collected a 2-1 away win at Burnley earlier this season
Three of the last five meetings have ended in a draw
Newcastle are undefeated in their last five at home against Burnley
Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings
Burnley produced a fantastic three points at Turf Moor on the weekend. They collected 2-1 win over the in-form Spurs. Burnley are in great form themselves though as they have strung together an eight-match undefeated streak of form in the top flight (W5 D3). They have won their last two. This positive run has been put together even though they have taken just the one clean sheet in their last seven.
Their away record is not that hot as they have won only three times on their travels. Their overall away record is W3 D4 L7. The Clarets are undefeated in their last four on the road (W2 D2) so putting that together, it’s all pretty decent from them. Burnley have scored an average of exactly a goal per game this season away from Turf Moor.
Newcastle’s home form is good enough at the moment to stand up to the challenge of the in-form Burnley. The draw in the match outright looks a good proposition.

There have been better times from Newcastle recently but still, they only start one point above the drop zone this weekend. It looks as if their nerves are going to be tested all the way to the end of the season. This is a big one for them as they play host to bottom side Huddersfield who look as if they are just waiting for their inevitable relegation to come. Read our Newcastle v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 21st, 2019 at 3:27 p.m.)
Newcastle’s output has been much better lately with just one defeat in their last four games played. That defeat was a narrow 1-0 reverse at Tottenham as well. Newcastle have won their last two home games in the Premier League, the second one of those a huge upset in taking a 2-1 victory over Man City.
That was just their fourth home win of the season though (D1 L8). A lack of goals from Newcastle has been a huge concern for them. They have only managed 12 home goals all season and five of those have been in their last two at St James’s Park.
62% of Newcastle’s home games this season have made it over 2.5 goals. It is going to be so important for them to try and keep their home momentum going. If you do look back further you will see that they have lost three of their last six home games in the EPL. Both teams have scored in less than half of Newcastle’s home games.
Three of their four home wins this season have been produced by a one-goal margin only. Actually of the six wins that they have recorded this season, all but one of them have been by a one-goal margin. Huddersfield are just one of two sides who have a worse home record than Newcastle this season.
Newcastle were 1-0 winners at Huddersfield in December
Each of the last three meetings have produced a 1-0 scoreline
Newcastle are W2 L1 in their three previous EPL games against the Terriers
The change of manager it has been for Huddersfield but still no change of fortunes. Huddersfield have taken one point from their last 13 Premier League games. Granted they have gone through a really tough period of fixtures, having faced Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal in three of their last four games.
Newcastle have been struggling in front of goal, the struggle for the Terriers has been even bigger. They are the lowest scoring side in the top flight and they have managed only the eight away goals in this season’s Premier League.
Huddersfield have conceded over two goals per away game on average. In their last six games out on the road, Huddersfield have collected just the one point and the two goals scored in that sequence. Their overall away form this season reads W1 D3 L8.
The Terriers have been losing at half-time in exactly half of their away games this season. Of the eight goals that they have scored on their travels, five of them have been in the first-half of fixtures. If there is light at the end of the tunnel for them, it is very very dim.
This has a low scoring game written all over it. Newcastle will not care as long as they get the win on the board. Newcastle can ride their positive recent home form and collect a win to nil.

Wolves have some nice from behind them in the Premier League at the moment as they are on a three-match winning streak. They will get a chance to extend that a little further as they play host to Newcastle. The Magpies will start just the two points clear of the drop zone. Read our Wolves v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 5th, 2019 at 11:38 p.m.)
Wolves have taken three straight wins in the top flight, beating Leicester, West Ham and Everton in that run. There’s more to that as well because Wolves have produced at least three goals in each of those. So they are pretty hot right now and looking back a little further have four wins in their last six played. On home soil, they have won their last two (scoring seven goals in total). Not too surprisingly they are going as favourites for this one. Overall only 38% of Wolves’ home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals.
The last two have done so though. Wolves have taken ac elan sheet in 31% of home games this season and half of their home wins have been by a one-goal margin. They haven’t been involved in a home draw in eleven now. The home record of Wolves this season reads W6 D2 L5. Of the goals which they have produced at home so far this season, 79% of them have been in the second half of matches. 8 of their 15 second-half goals have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches. Raul Jimenez has three goals in his last two games.
Wolves were 2-1 winners over Newcastle earlier this season
Wolves have lost only one of their last four league games against Newcastle (W2 D1)
Both teams have scored in just one of the last four meetings (all competitions)
Newcastle are unbeaten in four league trips to Wolves (W2 D2)
Newcastle suffered a 1-0 reverse against Spurs last time out. That snapped some positive form as they had won their previous two games. There has been a clear picture of Newcastle’s season. They have remained undefeated home and away against sides 14th or lower in the table this season. Considering they have lost 13 games this season overall you can see that they have had real troubles against the better sides. The Magpies have taken two points from their seven away games against sides currently in the top half of the t table.
Overall this season Newcastle are a W2 D5 L5 on their top flight travels. In that sequence of away games, Newcastle have netted just the nine goals. They have earned only the one point from their last four on the road and have failed to score in two of those four. Less than half of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Newcastle have earned a clean sheet in 33% of away games but haven’t earned one in their last four. They have been level at the half time break in eight of their road games. Huddersfield are the only side to have scored fewer league goals than Newcastle.
Wolves are in a confident mood at the moment and are growing in confidence in front of goal as well. They look as if they can hold their own against a low-scoring Newcastle side. Wolves to win to nil.
