Newcastle v Arsenal Free Bets, Betting Tips & Predictions

Arsenal will be looking to keep themselves firmly in the title picture when they make the long away trip to take on Newcastle on Sunday afternoon.

Mikel Arteta moved on from the disappointment of their 4-1 hammering at the hands of Manchester City, as they swatted aside Chelsea with consummate ease in a 3-1 victory in midweek.

Newcastle, meanwhile, are on the precipice of Champions League football next term, and two wins from their remaining five fixtures should do the job.

Eddie Howe has performed wonders this term, and the fact that Newcastle could finish above Manchester United and clinch third spot was scarcely thought of on Tyneside before the season began.

The Gunners, however, know the task at hand, and this clash has the ingredients to be a classic.

But how will things unfold? I have dived into the markets and picked out a couple of tips for you to consider adding to your betting slips.

Tyneside pain for Arsenal

The victory over Chelsea was much needed as it ended a sequence of four games without a win.

Aside from the defeat to City, the Gunners had raced into two-goal leads against West Ham and Liverpool, and they failed to hold their nerve in the clutch moments.

Newcastle, in the meantime, are riding the crest of a wave, and they have been rock solid at the back, conceding just 27 times, which is the fewest of the teams in the top four.

Last term, Arsenal crashed to a 2-0 defeat at St James’ Park, and their top-four hopes were dashed.

The wait to lift the league title has been far too long for Gunners fans, but it could well be extended into a 21st year.

I have gone with Newcastle to collect all three points and BTTS, a price that is trading at an inviting 16/5 with Paddy Power.

Our Top Value Prediction For Sunday Match at St James'

Callum Wilson at it again

Callum Wilson has been scoring goals in clusters of late. He grabbed a brace against Everton and Southampton in his last two league outings, and he’s had a cracking season.

Last season, he was on target against the Gunners, and he will relish facing them again at St James’ Park.

I may have been a bit over ambitious to suggest before the Everton game that he would score and provide an assist, although as mentioned, he did hit two.

So, for my second pick, I have gone with a straight-up bet for Wilson to score the first AND last goal of the game, which if you fancy, is priced at 11/1 with William Hill.
