Newcastle United hope to gain a significant jump away from the drop zone when they welcome Huddersfield to the St James’ Park this weekend. Newcastle are just one point away from the drop zone following a decent turnaround of results, while Huddersfield are looking increasingly likely to get relegated as the first team this season due to a 14 point deficit to safety. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Newcastle were unable to get a third away win of the season after Wolves came up with a late equaliser in the 1-1 between the two teams at the Molineux Stadium. Newcastle have picked up two wins and a draw in the last four league outings.
Huddersfield lost for a fourth consecutive league match as Arsenal picked up a 2-1 victory at the John Smith’s Stadium. This was the 13th consecutive game without a win for Huddersfield.
The reverse fixture witnessed Newcastle getting one of their two away victories this season after beating Huddersfield 1-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium. The previous meeting between these two teams at St James’ Park produced a similar victory for Newcastle. Our betting tips and predictions for the game anticipate a win for Newcastle.

Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert witnessed a significant improvement in performance from his team in the game against Arsenal, but they still continue to lack a finishing touch up front. As long as Huddersfield struggled to put the ball into the net, they will struggle for results. Newcastle have improved substantially over the last few weeks and the addition of players like Miguel Almiron makes them a decent force going forward. Despite the defensive set-up from Newcastle, our preview would go with a win for the home team.

Newcastle United vs Huddersfield Town draw odds: 3.40
Huddersfield Town win odds: 4.50
Correct Score odds
Newcastle and Huddersfield have been able to come up with less a goal per game this season. The lack of goals is especially pronounced in the case of Huddersfield, who have been able to come up with just 14 goals so far. The addition of Miguel Almiron is a welcome change for Newcastle, but it may be unreasonable to expect an instant impact from the former Atlanta United star. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-0 win for Newcastle.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
All of the last three games between Newcastle and Huddersfield have concluded with a 1-0 score and it is highly likely that the two teams will play out a similar low scoring encounter due to the defensive set up of both teams. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Salomon Rondon has been able to score only once since the turn of the year, but he remains Newcastle’s biggest threat with six league goals. Miguel Almiron may take a while before he starts making a major impact in the Premier League, which is definitely a huge step up from the MLS. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Salomon Rondon.
