Newcastle vs West Ham: Prediction and Betting Tips
Newcastle to continue where they left off
After three straight bottom-half finishes in the Premier League, Newcastle will be looking for a better season. Also, the Magpies are on course to register their third consecutive win against West Ham on the opening day. If they win, that will be Newcastle’s third consecutive win in the PL. That was last achieved in November 2018.
Three wins in five matches were Steve Bruce’s team’s record in the pre-season. However, Bruce’s main area of improvement for his team will be in defense. The reason for that is that the Magpies had just two clean sheets at home in the whole of last season. Moreover, only relegated West Brom conceded more goals at home (33).
Newcastle Key Points
- Newcastle have won four of their last five matches in the Premier League
- BTTS happened in Newcastle’s six of last ten matches
- The magpies scored in all of their last four matches
West Ham to repeat their successful results of last season
After a very successful 2020-21 campaign, West Ham will be looking for a similar season. Like their opponents, the Hammers ended their season with two wins scoring three goals in each. Yet, West Ham hope to not repeat their last five consecutive defeats on the opening day. Only Grimsby Town had six defeats in a row back in 1946-47.
Despite that hanging over them, David Moyes’s team have scored 3+ goals in 11 matches last season. In fact, only the two Manchester teams had a better record than that. Six of those 11 games came on the road. However, Moyes also must be aware of his defense as BTTS happened in 12 of 19 away matches last season.
West Ham Key Points
- BTTS happened in all of West Ham’s last five away games
- West Ham failed to score in two of their last ten matches
- The Hammers had just one clean sheet in ten games
Newcastle vs West Ham Prediction
The Hammers are traveling to St. James’s Park having lost in three of their previous visits. In Addition, the Hammers haven’t beaten the Magpies in five Premier League matches. On top of that BTTS happened in three of the last four matches between these two.
Steve Bruce was under immense pressure during last season after his team was struggling in the bottom positions. However, five wins in their last eight matches, allowed Newcastle to climb the table to 12th place.
On the other hand, David Moyes and his team were close to finishing in the top four and a Champions League spot. But the hammers lost focus in some matches and consequently finished sixth.
