Newcastle vs Arsenal predictions and betting tips for the Premier League fixture on 15th April with an anytime goalscorer tip and correct score prediction from our football tipster.
Arsenal are looking for a fourth consecutive Premier League win for the first time this season ahead of their trip to Newcastle on Sunday. The Gunners haven’t recorded a quartet of successive wins since the 2016/17 campaign but have also not lost to the Magpies in any of their past 10 encounters.
Newcastle are on their own three-game winning streak – a feat they hadn’t achieved since November 2014 – and will be looking to extend their good run as part of their quest to secure a top half finish.
Newcastle have scored at least once in seven of their last eight matches and virtually secured their Premier League status with a win against Leicester City last week. Their opponents on Saturday, Arsenal, are also in their best form of the season and booked their place in the Europa League semi-finals on Thursday.
Both sides are playing with confidence at the minute, as can be seen by their recent results, so I’m expecting them to score at least once each during the course of 90 minutes. Backing both teams to score is certainly worth consideration even if you just put it in a BTTS bet for today.
BEST ODDS – 4/7 for both teams to score: Bet Here.
Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck will be hoping to force his way into Gareth Southgate’s plans with the World Cup looming and has bagged three goals in his last two outings. The ex-Manchester United forward has endured a very up and down campaign up until now, but played a pivotal role in his side reaching the last four of Europe’s secondary club competition.
Betfair go 23/10 on Welbeck scoring at some point during proceedings at St. James’s Park this weekend, and we expect a few punters to be on board given his most recent performances. This seems a plausible Newcastle vs Arsenal betting prediction and will likely feature in bets up and down the country.
The best odds for Welbeck to score anytime are 23/10 – BET HERE.
As previously highlighted, the Geordies have really struggled against Arsenal of late but will surely fancy their chances here. Newcastle are currently sitting pretty in mid-table and can now release the shackles that are synonymous with the pressures of competing for top flight survival.
I envisage a far closer fixture than we’ve been used to seeing in recent years, and a draw on Sunday would come as absolutely no surprise. A 1-1 correct score, although a hardly outrageous Newcastle vs Arsenal betting tip, looks more than possible given the circumstances.
The best odds for a 1-1 draw are 13/2 – BET HERE.
An Arsenal win is a shade above evens at 6/5 (Betfair), which looks fair based solely on the fact that the Londoners come into this one on their best form of the season. The hosts, meanwhile, are a best price of 9/4 to win, while a draw can be backed at 5/2 with William Hill.
Rafael Benitez will be delighted that his treatment room looks decidedly bare ahead of Arsenal’s visit this weekend. The same cannot be said for Arsene Wenger, however, with Jack Wilshere’s enforced withdrawal against CSKA Moscow on Thursday the latest of a catalogue of injuries that have dogged the Englishman’s career.
Granit Xhaka is also a doubt, but Mohamed Elneny is available for selection after his red card from last week was overturned. Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Santi Cazorla and David Ospina are all still out, however.
