Newcastle vs Aston Villa Predictions and Free Betting Tips from expert tipsters when they go head-to-head in the English Premier League on Saturday, 12 August 2023.
Newcastle are set to host Aston Villa at St. James’ Park to kick off their new Premier League season. Newcastle have begun the season with a number of great preseason performances in an attempt to improve on their fourth place position from last season.
Their opponents, Aston Villa, have had a strong preseason as well. They will, however, be hoping to get off to a quick start this time around in what would be Unai Emery’s first full season after finishing an outstanding seventh the previous season.
The last time these two clubs met was last month in a friendly. The match ended in a 3-3 draw that day.
Aston Villa are on a 15-game unbeaten streak against this opposition at this venue. They have also won this fixture on nine of those occasions.
We are counting on Newcastle to pull off a win here. They’ve had a tremendous preseason heading into this one. Their past three friendlies have also all ended in wins.
Aston Villa, on the other hand, had a wonderful preseason but has a less than perfect away record against top opponents. They also failed to win any of their last four away league matches from last season.
Moreover, Newcastle also has an excellent h2h record at this venue in the recent history of this matchup.
We expect goals in this match. In five of Newcastle’s last seven matches, there have been more than 2.5 goals scored. Also, each of Aston Villa’s past three matches has ended with over 2.5 goals.
In addition, the last three h2h meetings between these two have had over 2.5 goals. By the looks of things, a high-scoring affair is expected this time out.
Both teams have been scoring a decent number of goals in the preseason. The hosts have scored at least two goals in six of their seven matches. While the visitors have scored 13 goals in their last five matches.
Thus, the chances are quite high for goals to come from either end of the pitch.
Newcastle has had an excellent preseason heading into the match. Their last three matches have all ended in victories. They also have an excellent recent record against Aston Villa at this venue. Furthermore, Aston Villa has struggled against top teams away from home soil.
A victory for Newcastle at 1.75 odds will be our main betting pick here considering all the observations.
Furthermore, the both teams to score odds of 1.70 look quite attractive. Given both clubs’ strong attacking prowess and recent goal participation at both ends of the pitch.
