Newcastle United make a return to St James’s Park when they host Everton this weekend. The Magpies have had their push for a top-10 finish halted by a disappointing result last weekend, but the club are just six points behind Everton coming into this match. It is a remarkable shift in the dynamics of the two clubs, as Everton were pushing for Europe at the start of the season. The Merseyside outfit now are struggling to even finish in the top half. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Newcastle were undone by a 2-0 defeat at the hands of West Ham at London Stadium. This was the first defeat for the Magpies in five matches.
The recent Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool ended up as a close fought goalless draw with Marco Silva’s men receiving widespread criticism for the defensive tactics. Everton have picked up one win in five matches.
The reverse fixture produced a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park. Everton were able to get a narrow 1-0 win in their last game at St James’s Park with hero Wayne Rooney coming up with the only goal of the match. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a success for Newcastle.

Newcastle have been playing some brilliant football in the last few weeks. Even though the team has been unable to claim the results that they have been deserving during this period, there have been some positive results for the team. The same cannot be said about Everton, who have been a disaster for several months. Silva was able to motivate his players for a big much like the Merseyside derby. It will be difficult to repeat the same in an away match against a team in the bottom half of the table. Our preview would go with a win for Newcastle.

Newcastle United vs Everton draw odds: 3.20
Everton win odds: 2.62
Correct Score odds
Newcastle have been playing some decent football of late with the team scoring seven goals from the last six matches. This tally could have been slightly higher if not for the blank against West Ham. Everton, meanwhile, have been able to grab only five goals in as many recent matches with three of those goals coming in one game. Our correct score prediction would pick a 1-0 win for Newcastle.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Apart from the 3-0 win for Everton three years ago, none of the last few games between Everton and Newcastle have been a high-scoring affair. Even earlier in the campaign, there was little to separate the two clubs as the game finished with less than 2.5 goals. Our total goals prediction would go with more of the same.

First Goalscorer odds
Salomon Rondon has been unable to score in his last two appearances, but the striker is the biggest threat for Newcastle going forward. He is also the club’s top scorer with seven league goals. The powerful presence offered by the 29-year-old will be a constant menace for Everton. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Salomon Rondon.
