Home Newcastle United

31/01/2018 Kick Off:  7:45 pm St James' Park V Predicted Score:0 - 0

Away Burnley

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

A draw at half time and full time. Given the form of both sides and how poor these two have been lately, goals look unlikely and neither side will want to lose this. The half time/full time draw can be found best priced at 18/5.

2 We fancy:

Both teams not to score at 3/4. A loss would really damage both sides and defences should come out on top, but if either side is to win, it will likely be by the odd goal. As neither side score many, this looks like a tempting bet.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Burnley to win 1-0 at 17/2. Three of Burnley’s last four defeats in their last seven games this season have been to the top six sides and Newcastle have lost by a 1-0 scoreline in three of their last seven at home.

Newcastle United's Last Six:

Newcastle’s last six: Won: 2 Drawn: 2 Lost: 2

Kenedy could make his debut for the club after signing on loan from Chelsea, but has not played much so might not be up to full fitness. Rafa Benitez often makes changes so more can be expected here after the FA Cup loss to Chelsea on Sunday.

Burnley's Last Six:

Burnley’s last six: Won: 0 Drawn: 2 Lost: 4

Aaron Lennon could also be one to make his debut, after singing from Everton on a permanent basis. Burnley have no new injury concerns but still remain without the likes of Robbie Brady, Stephen Ward and Jonathan Walters.

Newcastle United vs Burnley Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

St James’ Park has been the home of Newcastle United since 1892

Newcastle host Burnley on Tuesday night with both teams desperate for a win. The Magpies have just two wins from the last 10 Premier League games, while the Clarets are without a victory in seven games, a run stretching back to the start of December.

Burnley remain in the top half of the league despite their recent downturn in form. At 3/1 they are underdogs for the game but given how strong they are defensively, that price looks like a tempting one to go for. Considering both teams are struggling for form, it looks set to be a close game and either team to win look like good value.

Newcastle are priced at 5/4 to win the game and will be looking to end a run of seven home games without a victory. However, goals have been a real problem for Newcastle, who have scored just 22 times in 24 games. They have managed more than one goal on just one occasion in their last nine matches at home, suggesting they could struggle against a solid Burnley side on Wednesday evening.

Burnley do have the fourth best defensive record in the league, only behind Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea. Sean Dyche’s men will no doubt be set up to restrict Newcastle, and given Burnley have only scored 19 goals so far this campaign, a stalemate could be on the cards. Betting against both teams to score at 3/4 could be a decent shout and looks to be a strong reflection of how the game’s expected to go.

As for Newcastle, they have conceded the fewest amount of goals in the bottom half of the league at home, and Benitez has always had a good reputation for being defensively organised. Neither Newcastle or Burnley have outstanding goalscorers so under 2.5 goals could also be a way to go here and you can bet on that at 8/15.

Predicted Score: Newcastle United 0 - 0 Burnley
