Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for Newcastle vs. Liverpool at EPL

  • Where: St. Mary’s Stadium, Newcastle, England
  • When: Saturday, February 18, 6:30 pm ET

Coming into this event, the hosts are the favorites, and that’s something nobody hoped to see after seeing the schedule early on. However, this season is going in opposite directions for these two clubs, with the Magpies rising through the ranks and Liverpool losing its powerhouse status. Though, the Reds still have the quality to defeat any team in the world and are too dangerous. Newcastle must keep collecting points and securing their place in the top-four zone.

Newcastle vs. Liverpool Preview

Newcastle

Eddie Howe’s unit had three draws in a row, and after this, let’s say, crisis, they are pretty much out of the title race. Newcastle is now fourth in the standings, having only two points more than Tottenham, but also a game in hand. 

Though, the thing that boosted the morale is that in between these draws, Newcastle reached the finals of the Carabao Cup by eliminating Southampton in the semis. The last two events this crew played ended with the same result, 1-1, against West Ham at home and Bournemouth on the road. 

Newcastle plays inefficient football, and eight of the last ten games they played had under 2.5 goals. At home, their defense is among the best in England, and in the previous nine competitive events across all the competitions in seven they kept a clean sheet.

Liverpool

The Reds were better than Everton in the Merseyside Derby, 2-0, which is a big boost for Jurgen Klopp’s unit. After two losses in a row, and three straight without a victory, this triumph comes as a breath of fresh air. 

Liverpool’s defense has been terrible, and we simply don’t know what the reason for that is. They kept only two clean sheets on the past ten road trips and allowed 11 goals in the most recent five. 

Overall, the Reds’ performances away from Anfield are beneath all expectations, and four defeats in the last five outings back up our claim. Two were against Wolverhampton and two versus Brighton.

Newcastle vs. Liverpool Head to Head Games

The first meeting of the season at Anfield ended with Liverpool’s 2-1 victory. Newcastle was up at halftime, but Firmino scored a brace in the second half, with the winner coming in the eighth minute of the stoppage time. 

Newcastle vs. Liverpool Prediction

This game will be very hard, primarily due to Newcastle’s defensive-oriented game plan. The Magpies will decrease the pace and the tempo, trying to kill Liverpool’s energy and wait for the chance to score. That’s why we take under 2.5 goals for the final pick.

Our verdict: Under 2.5 goals
