Newcastle v Crystal Palace betting tips, odds is 2.48

Newcastle tips

Crystal Palace’s relegation odds continue to shorten, which is somewhat surprising given that they sit in 11th place in the table having picked up wins against the newly-promoted duo of Fulham and Leeds United of late.

Early goals have been a key feature of Crystal Palace’s games of late, In fact, no fewer than 12 goals have been scored before the 32 minute mark in the Eagles’ nine league games so far this term, with only the 4-0 away defeat to Chelsea managing to go beyond that minute without a goal.

That makes the 5/6 available on a goal before 32 minutes here look very tempting, particularly when you consider that Newcastle have conceding within the first 11 minutes of their last two Premier League matches.

Andros Townsend does not have a reputation as one of the league’s best tacklers, but he has averaged 3.1 tackles per game so far this term. Playing on the right side of the midfield, he will have to track Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin in this game – the 44 take-ons attempted by the Frenchman is the second-highest total in the Premier League.

  • The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
  • Both teams haven’t scored in their recent five fixtures.
  • Only one of their last five matches has ended in a draw.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 0-2 away win for the Magpies.
  • The Magpies have lost only one of their last ten clashes at home.
