Newcastle 5/2 to beat Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League matchup
Competition: Premier League
Market: Newcastle win
Odds: 5/2 @ Bet 365
Looking to mount a very surprise late push up the table, Newcastle will travel to a struggling Amex Stadium on Saturday evening.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has become a very worrying end to the season, Brighton are still firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap. In their 35 Premier League matches this year, they have recorded nine wins, seven draws and 19 defeats, scoring 32 and conceding 54 in return. Now holding just a three-point buffer over slipping into the drop zone, the Seagulls also hold the third worst attacking record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Brighton have lost their last seven matches across all competitions and have also failed to find the net in any of those defeats.
As for the visitors, enjoying a very bright end to the season, Newcastle have once again secured another year of Premier League football. In their 35 matches this campaign, they have won 11, drawn eight and lost 16, scoring 35 and conceding 44 in return. With a points tally of 41, the Magpies sit 13th in the table and seven points adrift of the top half. As for their recent run of results, Newcastle have now won their last two matches on the bounce and have scored four goals on that winning run. Even more impressive, Saturday’s visitors have lost just three of their last 10 top-flight outings.
