Newcastle United are still searching for the first victory of the campaign when they welcome Watford to the St James’ Park. Newcastle have only picked up three points this season and they are one of the two teams – along with Huddersfield – yet to pick up a win this season. Watford remain above the likes of Manchester United and Everton after having managed 19 points this season. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Newcastle were able to snatch a point from the recent trip to St Mary’s stadium after grabbing a goalless draw. However, the game could have easily gone in favour of a Southampton win due to the number of chances created by Mark Hughes’ men.
Watford came up with a brilliant 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at home to make it back-to-back league wins. The club have certainly recovered from a slump in form a few weeks ago.
The recent meeting between Watford and Newcastle produced a 2-1 victory for the Hornets at Vicarage Road. The meeting at St James’ Park witnessed the game end up as a 3-0 win in favour of the visitors. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Watford.

Newcastle are given a price of 2.55 to win the match. Yet, it is extremely difficult to back the Magpies who are in a very poor run of form. Newcastle have created very little chances going forward while they are up against a Watford team that has picked up five consecutive wins over this opponent. Watford also enter into the match on the back of the impressive performances, and Javi Gracia’s men have the advantage over the head-to-head side. Our preview would go with a win for Watford.

Newcastle United vs Watford draw odds: 3.20
Newcastle United win odds: 2.55
Correct Score odds
The Hornets have come up with five goals in the last two games without a reply. They are up against a Newcastle team that has been unable to score in four out of the last five league matches. Against Southampton, Newcastle had one of their disappointing games with no shots on target. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Watford.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Watford have averaged less than two goals per game this season but there have been games involving the Hornets that have produced more than 2.5 goals with ease. Yet, the lack of contribution from Newcastle is likely to make this game a low scoring affair. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Roberto Pereyra certainly specialises when it comes to scoring goals at home. However, he still remains the biggest attacking threat for Watford in the absence of players like Troy Deeney. Our first goalscorer prediction would back the Argentine, who has come up with five league goals this season.
