How are Burnley and Newcastle doing this season?

With 12 matches played so far this season, Newcastle and Burnley both are currently have nine points in the Premier League. The teams have both won two of their matches, drawn three and lost a total of seven games.

The only differences they have is in the goals they’ve scored.

  • Goals for: Newcastle has scored 9, while Burnley FC has scored 12
  • Goals against: Newcastle has failed to defend 15 and Burnley FC has let 25 slip through
  • Goal difference: That means Newcastle’s GD is -6, whereas Burnley’s is -13

This puts them both in the same position as Crystal Palace. But keep in mind that Crystal Palace has already played their 13th match. That means one of these teams is sure to eclipse them tonight…

What are the predictions for tonight’s match?

Well this is a fairly even pairing, so there are sure to be fireworks on the pitch.

Experts are putting their money on Newcastle to win, but it’s every man for himself in this match. Anything could happen.

It’s unlikely to be a high-scoring match because neither teams are known for their forwards’ prowess, so not many people are predicting anything above a 1-0 victory for either team or, indeed, a 1-1 draw.

What are the smartest Burnley V Newcastle bets to place?

Because everything is so very tight for this game, we’d predict going a little off piste for your bets. Here are a few examples of bets we think would be worth making before the match this evening:

  • Full time result: Burnley FC to win
    • This has better odds than Newcastle to win but is a definite possibility
  • Double chance: Draw or Newcastle to win
    • This time we’d go for mixing up a draw with a Newcastle win because it covers your bases, sure, but also it has the opportunity to either a) spice up a potentially lackluster match if there is a draw, or b) give you a little extra dosh if Newcastle do take it in the end
  • Jose Salomon Rondon to score any time during the match
    • This 29-year-old Venezuelan forward is currently on a one-year load to Newcastle United. He isn’t exactly a prolific goal scorer, but he got two in the back of the net against Bournemouth on his last outing, and we reckon he’s going to get at least one in this evening too. We’ve just got a feeling about it…
