Newcastle v Luton Betting Preview

Newcastle United welcome Luton Town to St James’ Park this Saturday in a Premier League clash, with both sides keen to extend their positive runs of form. Luton have shown impressive resilience recently and are expected to be a tough challenge, but Newcastle’s superior quality could give them the edge in this encounter.

Despite not hitting the heights of last season, largely due to ongoing injury issues within the squad, Eddie Howe’s Newcastle find themselves in seventh place, aiming for a mid-table finish but with aspirations of climbing higher. Newcastle’s form has seen a notable improvement, with three victories in their last four league games, including a 3-1 win at Aston Villa last time out. To keep their European ambitions alive, the Magpies need to turn around their recent home form after two consecutive losses at St James’ Park, despite previously securing seven consecutive home victories, including wins against top teams like Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal.

Luton Town come off the back of an extraordinary 9-4 victory against Brighton, with Elijah Adebayo netting a hat-trick and Chiedozie Ogbene also scoring. This win is part of a broader streak of good form, with Luton unbeaten in seven of their last eight in all competitions, moving them slightly above the relegation zone. However, Luton’s performances away from home have been less convincing, with just two wins on the road this Premier League season. Yet, their recent away games—a 3-2 win at Sheffield United and a 1-1 draw at Burnley—offer some hope for their visit to Newcastle.

Newcastle are heavily favoured by the bookies at 4/9. A Luton Town victory stands at 6/1.

Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson sidelined, Anthony Gordon will be crucial for Newcastle, having scored three goals in his last five home appearances. He’s at 5/2 to score on Saturday. Elijah Adebayo following his hat-trick against Brighton, bringing his season tally to eight Premier League goals. He’s priced at 4/1 to continue his scoring streak.

Over 3.5 goals at 7/5 and over 2.5 goals at 4/7 with bet365, who also see value in both teams to score at 3/4.
