Fulham have been unable to get any momentum going even after the arrival of Claudio Ranieri, as the team has lost three out of the last four games. Newcastle have also lost back-to-back games at St James’s Park, but the team are in a much better shape compared to a few months ago when they were unable to buy a victory. Even though Newcastle rely on a couple of moments in order to see them through to a victory, the presence of forwards like Salomon Rondon guarantees them goals even with half chances. Our preview would pick a win for Newcastle.

Newcastle United vs Fulham draw odds: 3.60
Fulham win odds: 4.00
Correct Score odds
Newcastle have not been in among the goals this season but the recent form of Rondon has helped them find winners at crucial junctions. Fulham have an offensive line-up that has been let down by indecisiveness between going forward and defending a fragile backline. Fulham have ended up conceding 16 goals in the last five away games when they have not scored from open play in this period. Our correct score prediction would back a Newcastle 1-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Both teams have been poor throughout the campaign when it comes to finding the back of the net. Newcastle are especially in a worse position after only scoring 14 goals from 17 league matches. Our total goals prediction would pick under 2.5 goals for this match.

First Goalscorer odds
Salomon Rondon has taken his league tally to four after they fought against Huddersfield. Three of those goals have helped break the deadlock in a match and the West Brom striker, who is on loan at the club, has been able to demonstrate his importance even further. Our first goalscorer prediction would back the 29-year-old.
