Chelsea vs Newcastle predictions and Premier League betting tips for this week’s fixture. Kick-off is 5:30pm on Saturday 12th January and our tipster has selected three recommended bets.
The first of our Chelsea vs Newcastle predictions this weekend comes from both side’s respective places in the Premier League table. The clubs are having vastly different years with Chelsea looking to remain in the Champions League places with a win and Newcastle struggling to stay away from the relegation positions. Newcastle have struggled to score against the bigger teams in the league recently – they couldn’t find the net again Manchester United or Liverpool – and this is why our first Premier League tip for the evening game on Saturday is for Chelsea to win to nil. This is a good banker option at 3/4 with William Hill.
Chelsea’s top goalscorer comes in the form of Eden Hazard so far this season but our anytime goalscorer tip for in this Premier League game is for Alvaro Morata to find the net. The Spanish striker has been under a lot of pressure since his move to Stamford Bridge but he has been on the scoresheet nine times this season, including a brace in the FA Cup last weekend. Those two goals gave him some much needed confidence and how he can go into the game against Newcastle in high spirits. Morata to score at any time is at 11/10 with Ladbrokes.
With Arsenal right behind them in the table, Chelsea need a strong win on Saturday evening to keep themselves in the top four. With the blues winning 2-1 in the game at St James Park earlier in the season it will be interesting to see how both teams compare, but we can’t see anything other than a Chelsea win in this fixture. Our final Chelsea vs Newcastle United is for Chelsea to win 3-0, this can be found at 6/1 with Betfair.
Chelsea at win – 2/9
Draw – 19/4
Newcastle to win – 12/1
It is clear and obvious that Chelsea are the favourites for this game and rightly so. They have the better squad and the better form. The Stamford Bridge fixture could be a good option to include as a way to boost an accumulator but there is no realistic reason to back a draw or away win.
Other anytime goalscorer odds include Eden Hazard – Chelsea’s top scorer at 4/5 and Olivier Giroud at 6/5 whilst Newcastle’s Salomon Rondon is priced at 3/1. These are all from Coral.
Elsewhere in other Chelsea vs Newcastle predictions, both teams to score is at an impressive 7/5 with Betway and you can also get over 3.5 goals at 8/5 or over 4.5 goals at 7/2 with the same company.
