What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Newcastle
Newcastle and Arsenal have followed a similar path in terms of their Premier League form but the Magpies have performed slightly better than their visitors.
Rafael Benitez’s men have spent much of the season hoping to avoid relegation but a run of three straight wins has lifted them well clear of danger and into the top half of the table.
Arsenal have also taken nine points from nine but all those games have been at home, while Trueform highlights how their form dips on their travels and Newcastle are the clear value here. A home win can be backed at 12/5 and kicks off our Newcastle vs Arsenal betting predictions.
A Look At Newcastle’s Betting Odds
The arrival of Kenedy on loan from Chelsea has proved an inspired signing for Newcastle, who have enjoyed a record of W4 D3 L1 with the Brazilian in the team.
Their only defeat was an understandable one at Liverpool and he has been instrumental in taking Newcastle to effective safety on 38 points, even though Benitez insists the job is not yet done.
Asked if he felt his team were safe after an impressive 2-1 win at Leicester, Benitez replied: “Not yet, we still need two points but we are closer. We are closer than we were three or four hours ago, maybe next week we will be even closer.
“We have to carry on and we are nearly there – but only nearly, that’s it. Another two points and I think it will be done.”
Newcastle’s form has been particularly impressive at St James’ Park, where they have kept three successive clean sheets in wins against Manchester United, Southampton and Huddersfield.
Eight of their 10 wins this season have been by a single goal and we like 4/1 for Newcastle to win by one goal here.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
All Arsenal’s focus has been on the Europa League since their hopes of a top-four finish were ended by their dismal away record.
The Gunners have managed just three wins on their travels and they will need to recover quickly from their midweek trip to Moscow if they are to pick up points on Tyneside.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will at least be available, having been cup-tied on Thursday, so gives the Gunners a cutting edge.
We’re finishing off our Newcastle vs Arsenal betting tips by taking 10/1 for a 2-1 home victory.
