2 We fancy:

This game could be a wide open affair as both these teams will see this as an opportunity to beat the other and put points on the board. Of course, a stalemate is more likely than a heavy trouncing. A 1-1 draw has odds of 11/2 with bet365.  

One to Watch: Glenn Murray

The 35-year-old veteran striker has had an excellent start to his league campaign by scoring five times in seven starts already in the league. Murray netted the winner in his team’s 1-0 win at home over a resurgent West Ham side last week and his goals have been influential in having a hand in winning all eight of the Seagull’s points this term. You can find odds of 5/2 with 888sport for Murray to score anytime during this game and that is probably the best of the free football betting tips regarding this tie.

Newcastle United vs Brighton Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Is Ayoze Perez the answer to Newcastle’s goalscoring problems?

Newcastle have had a dismal start to their league campaign sitting on two points in the relegation zone. Their last outing was a 3-2 loss away to Manchester United in a game that saw them blow a two-goal lead after their bright start had knocked the stuffing out of Jose Mourinho’s side early in the game. Something worth pointing out in this English Premier League Preview is the fact that those two miserable points are the only thing Rafa Benitez’s men to show for their endeavors this season have come from two goalless draws away to Cardiff and Palace. 

Brighton, on the other hand, have had a bit more of a mixed bag of form so far this term. Their last game was a 1-0 win at home over West Ham and that ended a run of two losses which in turn had come off the back of two 2-2 draws with Southampton and Fulham respectively. Something worth bearing in mind for anyone looking to make English Premier League Predictions in this game is the fact that Brighton have won just once in their last 12 away league games. 

Newcastle are 5/4 to win the game and last beat Brighton at home in the Championship 2-0 in 2006. It is 9/1 for a similar scoreline in this game and that is a huge price for anyone interested in making football score predictions in this game.

Brighton are 5/2 to take the three points back down south with them and have beaten Newcastle three times in their last six meetings both home and away and in all competitions. A 1-0 win for the Seagulls here has odds of around 8/1.

The draw is 11/5 and the last meeting between these sides at St James’ Park ended goalless it is 13/2 for another stalemate and that could be a tempting price for someone looking to make football predictions for today. 

Newcastle’s Spanish striker Joselu has two goals to his name this season and is the Magpies top scorer, he is 5/1 to open the scoring in this one. 

Brighton’s Glenn Murray is 11/2 to score the first goal of the game and that is a huge price for anyone interested in making football score predictions in this match. 

Predicted Score: Newcastle United 1 - 1 Brighton
