This weekend the Matchday 21 of the Premier League is played and Newcastle has the possibility of entering the top 3, but first, they have to overcome a tough rival like Crystal Palace.
Crystal Palace has just broken a losing streak against a great rival like Manchester United and wants to continue giving headaches to the teams in the upper part.
For their part, Newcastle won again and has a great unbeaten record that they hope to maintain to continue establishing themselves at the top of the league.
Saturday, January 21 at 5:30 pm ET at Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace +328
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace was on a losing streak and was getting dangerously close to relegation places. They lost to Tottenham (0-4) and Chelsea (1-0) in the league, as well as Southampton (1-2) in FA Cup, however this Wednesday in a late game, they equaled Manchester 1-1 United, who had a streak of 9 wins in a row. Michael Olise was the hero by scoring the goal at minute 90+1.
Patrick Vieira’s team occupies the 12th position with 23 points and already has a difference of 8 with the teams in relegation places. Something that they will have to improve is in the definition since they are one of the ones that score the fewest goals.
At home, they have 3 losses and 1 draw in the last 4 games.
Why Bet on Newcastle
Newcastle had a productive weekend by beating Fulham 1-0 and snapping a run of two consecutive goalless draws. They are fourth with 38 points, 1 less than Manchester City and Manchester United, so their objective now is to surpass them and continue to establish themselves in the Champions League positions.
One of the best news for Eddie Howe is that he has already got Alexander Isak back. The Swedish striker, who arrived this season as the great reinforcement and the most expensive player in the team’s history, was injured after having played just 3 games (where he had scored 2 goals). He returned this year and played the first half against Sheffield Wednesday for the FA Cup, then 12 minutes against Leicester for the EFL Cup, and now he returned to the Premier League and did it in style, scoring the winning goal.
There are already 14 undefeated league games for the ‘Magpies’, of which 9 have been victories.
Final Betting Analysis: Crystal Palace vs. Newcastle
Crystal Palace has been a team that has had bad luck since it plays good games but loses or draws, and usually, it makes it difficult for the teams in the upper part, as it did to Manchester United this Wednesday. However, Newcastle, together with Arsenal, have been playing the best football in England and are highly motivated, and they have already got Isak back, so we believe they will be the winners.
At MyBookie.ag we find that Newcastle is the favorite of the match with a Moneyline of -114, while Crystal Palace has +328 and the draw is at +251.
The last time they met was on November 9 last year for the EFL Cup and it was a 0-0 draw, but Newcastle won on penalties. They played for the Premier League on September 3 and also tied without goals, while the last win was for the Magpies on April 20, 2022, 1-0 with a goal from Miguel Almirón.
Go for a straight win in the Moneyline. If you bet $100 on the win at -114, you will gain $88 for a total payout of $188.
