Punters can great value from our betting tips for this game which we have picked from Odibets

NEWCASTLE

Newcastle are sitting in midtable with an almost symmetrical 5 wins, 5 losses and 3 draws from their opening 13 games of the season. They’ve picked up three wins at home against West Brom, Burnley and a shock upset over Everton.

Leading striker Callum Wilson, who they signed in the summer from Bournemouth has been their brightest spark this season. Outside of him, however, they have not had much to write home about.

Injuries to Gayle and Shelvey denies them creativity and toughness they badly need against a Liverpool team that is starting to find their stroke.

LIVERPOOL

Liverpool have excellently navigated through a ton of injuries and hangovers from their historic title-winning campaign.

They were struggling to get wins on the road with four successive draws prior to their 7-0 demolition of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park a couple of weeks ago.

Overcoming injuries to key players, including a season-ending knee injury to captain and defensive linchpin Virgil van Dijk was always going to be an uphill task but they have nevertheless managed to keep the ship afloat through the storm.

NEWCASTLE UNITED VS LIVERPOOL MATCH FORECAST AND BETTING TIPS

Liverpool’s ability to weather the challenges they have faced and come out relatively unscathed makes them firm favourites to retain their crown. Their 2-1 win over Tottenham, followed by the 7-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace was a statement to their challengers that they will fight to defend their crown with all they have. They are in a groove right now and with most of their players, particularly in defence, returning from injury, they will continue to wreak havoc in the league. Newcastle have struggled against the top sides at home. Apart from the win against Everton, they lost handily to both Chelsea and Man United. Well, the Reds are a class above these two at the minute and we fancy them to win both at halftime and fulltime here @ 1.84 with Odibets as our first betting tip.

These two teams have a long history of producing classic encounters, particularly at St James’ Park. The last 3 games here have had both teams scoring and their last 4 overall encounters have produced Over 3.5 goals. With Liverpool looking like themselves once again, goals will have to be on the menu here and we are going for Over 2.5 goals @ 1.51 with Odibets Free Bet as our final prediction.
