Newcastle United look to continue their progress up the league table when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this weekend. Newcastle have been able to make decent progress away from the relegation zone and the club are currently seven points away in the table. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace have a one-point advantage over Newcastle as Roy Hodgson’s men continue their impressive form for the last few months. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Newcastle’s 2-0 loss against Arsenal provided the team with the unwanted record of being winless in eight straight away matches. Newcastle’s last league victory on the road was against Huddersfield back in December.
Crystal Palace were beaten by Spurs 2-0 in the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. This midweek game was preceded by a 2-0 win over Huddersfield at Selhurst Park.
The reverse fixture saw Palace and Newcastle involved in a goalless draw at Selhurst Park. The last game between these two teams at St James’ Park was a 1-0 win for Newcastle. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a win for Newcastle.

Palace had a strong away record in the Premier League over the last few weeks before succumbing to back-to-back losses against Watford and Spurs. Newcastle have an excellent record at the St James’ Park with four successive victories. A return to winning ways is really important for Newcastle, who are still not completely away from the threat of relegation. Rafa Benitez would want his team to get to 40 points as soon as possible in order to rest well for the campaign. The home advantage is a major boost for Newcastle and our preview would go with a victory for the Magpies.

Newcastle United vs Crystal Palace draw odds: 3.20
Crystal Palace win odds: 3.00
Correct Score odds
There have been over 1.5 goals from Newcastle in the last five home matches while they have kept three clean sheets in this period. Crystal Palace did not score in the midweek game against Spurs, but this is a completely different team to the one that struggle for goals in the first half of the campaign. In fact, Palace had scored in all games in 2019 prior to the blank against Spurs. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Newcastle.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
It is quite incredible that the last high-scoring game between the Eagles and Magpies was back in 2015 and the last high-scoring game on this ground was even back further in 2014. However, both teams enter into the match on the back of a good form. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Salomon Rondon has come up with the opening goal for Newcastle in three out of the last four matches at St James’ Park. The forward is aiming to hit double figures for the Premier League campaign for the first time in his career. The former West Brom forward’s best record up until now is the current return of nine goals, which was also the outcome with West Brom back in the 2015-16 campaign. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Salomon Rondon.
