What Trueform says for Newcastle vs Burnley
Newcastle and Burnley have both been in fine form in the Premier League of late, but the Clarets have the edge on our Trueform ratings.
Sean Dyche’s side are unbeaten in eight top-flight fixtures and have picked up maximum points in five of those matches after beating Tottenham on Saturday.
On that evidence, 29/10 for an away win is too tempting to turn down as our initial Newcastle vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle claimed a third straight home victory when seeing off Huddersfield 2-0 here over the weekend, although they did only have to face 10 men for 70 minutes.
Town had skipper Tommy Smith sent off for a rash challenge and the Magpies made them pay through second-half goals from Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez.
Rondon told NUFC TV: “If you want to stay in the Premier League, you have to win the games at home. It’s massive in this league.
“Three wins in a row at St James’ Park is massive for us and we’ll just carry on…but we have another final against Burnley on Tuesday and it will be a difficult game.”
Record signing Miguel Almiron made an impressive home debut, so everything points towards United being competitive again here.
Looking at the Newcastle vs Burnley odds, we do like Evens for both teams to score.
Last Newcastle line-up: Dubravka, Schar, Lascelles, Lejeune, Yedlin, Ritchie, Hayden, Almiron, Longstaff, Rondon, Perez.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
However, while Newcastle must be respected, Burnley have been outstanding since suffering a Boxing Day hammering by Everton.
Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes have formed a strong partnership up front and both were on target in a 2-1 defeat of Spurs, making it eight goals in four games for that duo.
Midfielder Jack Cork said: “Although we didn’t have a lot of possession, I think we probably deserved the win in the end.
“It was never going to be an easy game but I feel like we limited them to crosses and shots from outside the box for the majority of the game. We had a plan, we stuck to it and it worked.
“You look at the fixtures and you think games against the big six, anything you get is a big bonus.
“For us to get three points against them at this stage of the season is huge. There’s just a real good feeling since the start of this calendar year.”
Tom Heaton has been superb at the other end and Burnley look just as comfortable on the road, drawing 2-2 at Manchester United before winning 3-1 at Brighton.
Having such powerful outlets to aim at going forward is a real bonus, so we’re taking 7/1 for an away win and both teams to score to finish off our Newcastle vs Burnley betting tips.
Last Burnley line-up: Heaton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley, Cork, Hendrick, Westwood, Barnes, Wood, McNeil.
NEWCASTLE 2-0 Huddersfield – Salomon Rondon, Ayoze Perez
BURNLEY 2-1 Tottenham – Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes
Head-to-head: Burnley 1-2 Newcastle, Newcastle 1-1 Burnley, Burnley 1-0 Newcastle
