Newcastle United vs West Brom: Preview and Predictions

Newcastle United vs West Bromwich Albion
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: St. James’ Park (Newcastle upon Tyne).

West Bromwich Albion took four points from matches with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool in last two rounds, yet they have no chances of saving the elite class status. Can it get weirder? The management change obviously brought superb results for the Baggies, but sadly to their fans, it came a bit too late given the team is eight points below the safe zone line with just three games left to play.

We wrote they have no chances of saving the top flight status. They do, but these just can’t get any slimmer as Swansea City have a game in hand on top of the eight-point cushion also. Nevertheless, let’s return to WBA’s strong displays against the league’s heavyweights. Moore obviously did a massive job raising the spirits in such tough period for the Baggies. As strange as it sounds, the momentum is now on their side in spite of the look at the league ladder and we believe they have what it takes to grab result here at St. James’ Park with the most recent displays under their belts.

Newcastle United vs West Brom: Head-to-head

Overall, WBA lead the H2H tie by two wins coming into their 107th clash with Newcastle United.

The Magpies were much more successful in games at St. James’ Park, though, where they won 26 and lost only 14 of 52.

Five straight H2H fixtures ended with less than three goals sored before the one played in this term of the Premier League when teams shared spoils in a 2-2 draw at The Hawthorns.

Newcastle vs West Brom: Prediction

The Magpies had a turbulent season full of ups and downs behind them, but Rafael Benitez has reasons to be satisfied after the four-win streak helped the team avoid the relegation scrap before the final few games of the campaign. The mentioned run came to an end last weekend when Newcastle United fell 1-0 away at Everton. They still look good on track to make the top-half finish, being three points above AFC Bournemouth at 11th.

The bookies see Newcastle United as 1.80 favourites and we would normally agree with this. However, the Baggies showed some spectacular performances against Manchester United and Liverpool and we would really go against ourselves not to try with the away win at 4.75. Less conservative punters can try with the double chance backing West Bromwich Albion not to lose at the odds of 2.05.
