Newcastle United v Liverpool Premier League Betting Tips 30/04/2022
Newcastle United have put together a strong run of form in recent weeks to ease their previous relegation worries. This weekend, the Magpies host a Liverpool side still in with a serious chance of notching a historic quadruple this season. With both sides in good form, a cut and dry win for the favourites is not guaranteed. We look at the best value odds and markets ahead of the Newcastle Untied vs Liverpool fixtures. This match kicks off at 12:30 on Saturday and it will be shown live on BT Sport.
Newcastle are on a four-match winning run in the Premier League. The North East side eased to a 3-0 win at Norwich on Saturday to add to three home wins over Wolves (1-0), Leicester (2-1) and Crystal Palace. The impressive form has shot the Magpies up to ninth place in the table. Liverpool were in Champions League action in mid-week and the Reds earned a hard-fought 2-0 win over Villarreal at Anfield. In all competitions, Jurgen Klopp’s side has won four matches in a row and they remain unbeaten in 11.
In terms of team news, Newcastle striker Callum Wilson and defender Kieran Trippier could return to the squad. But, the match comes too soon for Jamal Lewis (groin), Isaac Hayden (knee) and Ryan Fraser (thigh). For Liverpool, Roberto Firmino was absent against Villarreal but should be in contention this weekend.
Firstly, looking at the matchwinner odds for Newcastle vs Liverpool, the Reds are clear favourites to take all three points. However, Newcastle should not be written off. Having won their last six home matches, there is a chance the Magpies can cause an upset on Saturday. SBK have the best odds for a home win at 38/5. Although, a draw between the sides is more likely than a home win. Newcastle has drawn two of their last three matches against Liverpool and Eddie Howe’s side are unbeaten in their last eight at home. As a result, there could be good value in Bet365’s 4/1 odds for a stalemate. On current form, there is no ignoring Liverpool, however. The Merseyside club look imperious after winning 12 of their last 13 in the Premier League. Klopp’s side has also beaten Newcastle in six of the last eight meetings and Coral are offering the best odds at 4/9.
Under 2.5 Goals
Even though Liverpool are the outright favourites to take all three points against Newcastle, it seems unlikely that the Reds will produce a one-sided result. Under Howe, Newcastle has been harder to beat at St James’ Park, which has led to some low scoring results. Six of their last nine home matches in the Premier League have seen under 2.5 goals. Liverpool has also seen some close results on the road recently. In three of their last four away matches in the Premier League, the Reds have seen under 2.5 goals three times. At 6/5, Unibet are offering the best odds for under 2.5 total goals. However, there is better value in choosing Coral’s Liverpool win and under 2.5 combined bet, which returns 14/5.
Despite the chances of a low scoring result at St James’ Park, bettors can back some key players to find the net again in the Premier League. For Newcastle, January signing Bruno Guimarães has found his feet recently, notching three goals in his last three matches. At 33/5 odds, provided by Sporting Index, another Guimarães goal this weekend would be a good outsider option. Our goalscorer pick for this fixture comes from Liverpool’s ranks. Among the Reds’ talented front line, Sadio Mane has hit top form in recent weeks, netting six goals in his last six starts. VBet are offering the best odds at 8/5 for another Mane goal at any time this weekend – representing a good value in the goalscorer markets.
Newcastle will be no pushovers on current form, particularly with a passionate home crowd behind them at St James’ Park. Liverpool will need to dig in to get a crucial three points on Tyneside and a good contest is expected.
