Newcastle 17/10 to beat Burnley in Monday’s Premier League showdown
Competition: Premier League
Market: Newcastle to beat Burnley
Odds: 17/10 @ Bet365
Monday night football returns this game week following another incredibly important round in the Premier League. With a number of the teams in the bottom half of the table clinching vital wins, both Burnley and Newcastle will know that a victory will be crucial if they are to maintain the cushion that is keeping them clear of the relegation zone.
Burnley have been in poor form in their last five games as they have registered just one win to go with three draws and a defeat in their last match. This has seen Monday’s hosts to 13 points for the campaign, which means they currently sit in ninth place. Just nine goals conceded in nine games is a very good return, but they have only scored eight times this campaign which shows that they rely upon their defence a little too much as their forwards are not in the best of form as of yet.
For Newcastle, it has been a fantastic start to the season. Four wins, two draws and three defeats have seen the Magpies to eighth place in the league with 14 points, one point and place above their next opponents. They have scored 10 times this season, but it is their defence that is the outstanding part of their team as they have picked the ball out of their net just eight times this campaign. With the two sides very good at the back, this could be a game that is settled by a single goal. With this in mind, Bet365 have given Newcastle odds of 17/10 to beat Burnley.
