What Trueform says for Crystal Palace vs Newcastle
Crystal Palace and Newcastle have similar up-and-down profiles but the Eagles have achieved slightly higher Trueform ratings in four of the last five rounds of Premier League fixtures.
Roy Hodgson’s side have gone from basement dwellers to 13th place and are now two points above the Magpies in the table.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Only Arsenal have beaten Crystal Palace in their last 14 league games following Tuesday’s solid 1-1 stalemate at West Ham, a result which gave us three winning tips in our preview of that match.
Belgium frontman Christian Benteke netted only his second goal of the season at London Stadium and it will be a major boost if he can build on that strike.
Benteke thumped in a header from Andros Townsend’s cross midway through the first half and said: “It feels good because the last few weeks have felt more like frustration.
“I felt I was close to scoring, but to be fair we got some great results. I wasn’t just focused about myself, but I was just saying to myself to keep going and that I would score. That’s what happened.”
The 27-year-old scored in successive games five times last term and appeals at 17/10 to net at any time again here for our Crystal Palace vs Newcastle betting tips, plus 4/1 to break the deadlock.
Palace brought in Alexander Sorloth from Danish side FC Midtjylland for £9million on deadline day, but the 22-year-old may need time to settle in before challenging for a starting spot.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle are also in decent form, with their only two defeats in seven league games coming against Manchester City following Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Burnley at St James’ Park.
The Magpies were a touch unfortunate not to secure a first home win in eight matches, as the Clarets’ equaliser rebounded into the net off keeper Karl Darlow after he had tipped a close-range header onto the bar.
Joselu’s tame effort from the penalty spot when it was 0-0 was one of several missed chances for Newcastle, who will be hoping loan signing Islam Slimani is soon fit.
“We created enough to win the game,” said Rafael Benitez. “We had enough chances to score the second or third goal and finish the game, but we didn’t do it.”
More wasteful finishing could cost United at Selhurst Park, so we’re keen on 31/4 for a 2-1 home victory from the Crystal Palace vs Newcastle odds.
