    Newcastle United v Swansea City Betting Predictions and Match Preview

    This is a huge game for two teams battling to beat the drop, though the predicament in which Swansea currently find themselves, four points adrift of safety with 16 games remaining, means that it is arguably more crucial to the Welsh club.

    Although Newcastle are winless in six top-flight matches at St. James’ Park, collecting just a single point along the way, recent confidence-boosting wins at West Ham and Stoke mean that they begin as 56% favourites for victory against opponents who have lost seven times in eight trips at this level of late.

    Last season’s score

    If the Swans are looking for reasons for optimism, then a record of six wins from their previous nine games against the Magpies should provide them with some, though they have lost each of the last two without troubling the scorers.

    Given that we do not expect both teams to score (54% chance) for the tenth time in the most recent 13 Newcastle home matches, as well as for the 12th time in 17 Swansea fixtures on the road, then 1-0 (14% chance) and 2-0 (11% chance) have to be the scorelines to look out for.

    Top betting tips and predictions

    Our KickOff predictive algorithm also affords a 55% chance to the possibility of this contest serving up under 2.5 goals, something that has been the case in five of the previous six games involving Rafael Benitez’s men in the Premier League.

    The Magpies clearly lack an iconic No.9 in the mould of Alan Shearer, but Ayoze Perez (13% chance) has been showing up recently, grabbing the winner at Stoke and then netting twice more against Luton in the FA Cup, so the Spaniard has to be a good first scorer option.
