Newcastle vs Chelsea predictions and betting tips for their Premier League fixture on Sunday May 13th with an anytime goalscorer tip and correct score prediction included
Chelsea will enter their final league game of the season with only slim hopes of securing Champions League football for next season. After failing to earn three points when hosting Huddersfield in midweek, the Blues now need to beat Newcastle and hope that Liverpool are beaten by Brighton at Anfield. However, Chelsea have won their last four competitive away fixtures while Newcastle have been beaten in their last four matches after securing their Premier League status for next season last month. All four games were lost via a single goal margin culminating in a 1-0 midweek defeat at Tottenham. Yet the Magpies will hope to finish their campaign with a flourish in front of their home fans, so read our Newcastle vs Chelsea predictions below and get yourself a free bet to use on our weekend Premier League betting tips for the last weekend of the season.
Since they were beaten 3-1 by Tottenham at Stamford Bridge at the beginning of April, Chelsea are unbeaten in seven competitive matches and will be contesting the FA Cup final next weekend. The Blues have also beaten hosts Newcastle twice this season on home soil via 3-1 and 3-0 scorelines and they will be eager to complete the treble over their opponents. However, Newcastle have been a useful team at St James’ Park in recent months with only West Brom leaving the venue with a victory. Both Arsenal and Manchester United have been beaten via single goal margins, and despite their latest slump in form, the Magpies could raise their performance once again for this final game of the campaign. Therefore, the first of our Newcastle vs Chelsea predictions is for a score draw at odds of 4/1 with Boylesports.
Although Olivier Giroud had scored just one previous goal for Chelsea following his late January transfer from Arsenal, he netted twice in a 3-2 victory at Southampton earlier last month. The Frenchman opened the scoring in two subsequent Premier League fixtures for Chelsea and after featuring as a second-half substitute in midweek, he is likely to start this match. Giroud appeals as a decent anytime scorer tip in this contest and so the second of our Newcastle vs Chelsea betting tips is for Giroud to score anytime. The odds for this are 13/10 with Ladbrokes.
Although Newcastle have remained fairly reliable in defence for much of the season, they have often struggled in attack. The Magpies have netted more than twice in just three Premier League games this term and have scored just once in their last four contests. Visitors Chelsea have scored exactly one goal in each of their last three fixtures and have participated in three 1-1 draws since late March. There may not be too many goals netted in this fixture, and so our correct score tip to complete these Newcastle vs Chelsea predictions is for a 1-1 draw. The best odds for this football tip are 7/1 at William Hill.
Odds for Newcastle to win this match are 11/2 with Chelsea priced at 8/15 to claim victory, while a draw is offered at 3/1.
