Our Betting Tip
Newcastle win to nil
Odds
33/20

 

Both Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town enjoyed promotion from the Championship to the Premier League in 2017, and both have struggled to find the same level of success in their second season back in the top tier of English football.

However, it’s fair to say that right now, Huddersfield are struggling quite a bit more, with a shocking 11 points to their name at the rock bottom of the league table. Although Newcastle’s 16th place standing isn’t ideal, it must seem like a dream in comparison to what the Terriers are suffering through right now. Despite battling gallantly against Arsenal in a 2-1 losing effort, it looks like it is simply too little too late. Not only that, but Newcastle have been bolstered by a recent huge victory over Manchester City, even if that momentum is beginning to wear a little thin.

Newcastle United vs Huddersfield Town Prediction: Newcastle 1-0 Huddersfield

Although there are positives to be found in Huddersfield’s performances at times, the bottom line is they have failed to get the job done over and over again. Newcastle, on the other hand, while not perfect, have shown a decent amount of fire lately against City, Tottenham and Wolves. In general, they seem to have a sense of direction, while Huddersfield are circling the drain.

We don’t think this will be the match where Huddersfield break their seemingly endless winless streak, but we do think they’ll put up a fight. Nonetheless, we predict that Newcastle will be able to break down Huddersfield’s defence and retain the advantage, leading to an overall scoreline of 1-0 to the home team.

Our Betting Tip
Newcastle win to nil
Odds
33/20

The advantage here is definitely on the side of the home team, with Newcastle coming into this contest with a 52% win advantage to Huddersfield’s 20%. The team at the bottom of the Premier League standings have 19/5 match odds at Ladbrokes, with Newcastle getting low-risk 4/5 odds of a win. However, with Huddersfield going goalless in four out of five of their last matches and Newcastle showing their dominating potential against the defending champions just last month, we recommend you wager that the Magpies win to nil to get 33/20 odds and a higher potential ROI.

Previous matches

The history books do give Huddersfield fans a reason to be confident, with the underdogs having a slight statistical advantage over Newcastle in terms of overall victories. However, it’s a different story when we look to the modern day, as Newcastle bested Huddersfield twice last year – both with 1-0 results, which is also what we’re predicting here.

They traded victories in 2017, one apiece, and Huddersfield also got a win back in 2016. Before that, you have to go back to 2009 for another meeting between these two, which was an action-packed 4-3 League Cup outing. That would be their first meeting since 1984. With that in mind, we have to give the advantage to Newcastle, despite Huddersfield having the overall statistical edge.

Players to watch: Miguel Almirón & Karlan Grant

Newcastle United: Miguel Almirón

Newcastle United’s £21 million record signing of Miguel Almirón certainly raised a few eyebrows, with many who weren’t familiar with his work wondering whether the midfielder would be worth the huge price tag. However, he impressed fans with his blistering pace in his debut match against Wolves a couple of weeks ago, and we think this contest against Huddersfield would be the ideal time for him to show that he’s worth every penny.

Huddersfield Town: Karlan Grant

There was plenty of confusion regarding who scored for Huddersfield in their 2-1 loss to Arsenal, which ended a five-match long draught of goals. First, Adama Diakhaby got the credit, then defender Sead Kolašinac, then to Grant. Despite controversy, a goal in his home debut off the bench is certainly one way of making an impression. We’re hoping that the 21-year-old can be a huge help to Huddersfield’s struggling offence. If he manages to score again here, there will be little doubt over who was behind the ball.
