What a game we have in store here as Sky Sports bring us live coverage of one of English football’s favourite fixtures. Newcastle welcome Liverpool to St James Park for the second of Saturday night’s televised matches and we’re sure to see a huge audience take in this one. Here are our top Newcastle v Liverpool betting tips.
A Look at the Game in Depth
Liverpool are chasing down the Premier League title while Newcastle would just love to be the side that ruined things for their rivals. The hosts can’t win the league themselves, of course, but they will have a say in who does, and they go in unbeaten in three.
It has been a rollercoaster year for The Toon Army, but they have successfully avoided relegation and could drive themselves into midtable with the right result. Back-to-back wins over Leicester and Southampton had fans excited for next season and if the board splash the cash this summer there’s no real reason why they can’t challenge for a European finish. Newcastle were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton last weekend and another share is 9/2 at Bet365, the home win 19/2 – top price at Unibet.
We are now into game 37 and Liverpool are refusing to give up on their title dreams and hand Man City back their crown. It has been a long time coming but finally The Reds have genuine claims to the Premier League trophy again. They sit in second, one point behind the leaders and enjoy a fantastic winning run. The visitors have been ruthless this season, winning 28, drawing seven and losing just one. Draws are in danger of costing them the league as they have lost three fewer than their rivals.
Liverpool did as expected last weekend when hammering lowly Huddersfield 5-0 at Anfield, with the goals coming from Keita, a Mane double and Salah brace, making light work of a Terriers side who have looked way out of their depth this term. Another fine performance, Jurgen Klopp told the fans he was happy with the points and now focus on the next game. Every fixture is a cup final to Liverpool now, but they have the added pressure of playing Barcelona at the Camp Nou on Wednesday, opening the month in fine style. Back Liverpool at 1/3 with Unibet. Those looking for a bit more can try both teams to score in an away win at 2/1 – top price with Ladbrokes.
