Crystal Palace welcome Newcastle to the Selhurst Park this weekend hoping for a second consecutive league victory for the first time this season. Palace are now onto six points for the campaign after the weekend results. Newcastle’s poor season has hit a new low with the team still on just one point after five matches. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Palace were able to snatch a crucial 1-0 win over relegation rivals Huddersfield away from home. This was only the second win of the campaign for the team since beating Fulham in the first game.
Newcastle were at the end of a fourth successive defeat in all competitions, as the team slipped to a 2-1 defeat against Arsenal. The Magpies have taken just a point so far this season.
The recent game between Palace and Newcastle produced a 1-1 draw and this also was the recent meeting between the two clubs at Selhurst Park. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a win for Palace.

Newcastle are in serious trouble after having lost four out of the opening five matches in the campaign. Even though the team has lost only once in the recent three trips to Selhurst Park, the odds are heavily in favour of the home team and it is quite understandable considering their ability to win matches even when not at their best – like in the recent trip to the John Smith’s Stadium. Palace have a few winners in the team and they should be able to get the club to a comfortable win.

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle United draw odds: 3.40
Newcastle United win odds: 3.60
Correct Score odds
Newcastle are expected to be slightly better going forward after having been favouring a highly defensive approach up until now. Luckily, Newcastle’s front line-up will be reasonably confident after scoring in the last four matches. Palace have kept three clean sheets this season and all have been away from home. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Palace 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The game may not be an entertainer on paper given that both clubs have been goals shy, but Newcastle’s poor defensive form is likely to aid this game into becoming a goal fest. The lack of Christian Benteke should not affect Palace excessively, as the Belgian international has not been in a good scoring form either way. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Wilfried Zaha is now onto three goals for the Premier League campaign and he remains the key player for the club going forward. His ability to create goals out of nothing is of paramount importance to a Palace team that does not have much creativity. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Zaha.
