What Trueform says for Everton vs Newcastle
Newcastle have been on fire recently and look worth sticking with at Everton, judged on our Trueform ratings.
The Magpies will be seeking a fifth straight Premier League win and have only lost to Manchester City and Liverpool in their last 15 top-flight fixtures.
Goodison Park is never an easy place to go, but 12/5 for an away victory is tempting enough to get the nod in our Everton vs Newcastle betting predictions.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton followed up their derby draw at this venue with a 1-1 stalemate against Swansea in Wales, keeping the Toffees in ninth place.
Sam Allardyce insists his tenure has been a success and that is a fair call when compared with the early-season chaos under Ronald Koeman.
However, Big Sam has failed to win over the club’s supporters and the feeling is that another change of leadership is on the cards this summer.
Fans voiced their discontent with the style of play even when Everton were leading at Liberty Stadium and former star Tim Cahill echoed those views.
He said: “I feel we’ve lost our identity as a club. I feel like there’s nothing that we’re really stamping and building around.
“On the pitch, it’s just not linking well. It’s difficult to watch, if I’m honest, because of the quality.”
Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson is still a few weeks away from recovering fully from a knee injury.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle did us a big favour when coming from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1, with our preview of that match featuring three successful selections, including a 10/1 correct score tip.
Ayoze Perez and Matt Ritchie were on target for the Magpies that day, while the central midfield axis of Jonjo Shelvey and Mohamed Diame again proved crucial.
Despite now being safe with 41 points, United are looking to maintain the momentum and can climb above Everton if prevailing on Merseyside.
Diame said: “We’re still going to try to finish as high as possible in the table. As I have said before, we have to enjoy winning for a few days, but after that, focus on the next task in hand.”
Rafael Benitez can take pride from instilling such a strong work ethic in his players and the former Liverpool boss would no doubt love to now put one over his old foes.
Leicester were beaten by the same scoreline at King Power Stadium and we’re finishing off our Everton vs Newcastle betting tips by taking 23/2 for the Magpies to make it three straight 2-1 victories.
Christian Atsu is out for Newcastle through injury. The winger has a minor knee problem and will not be risked.
