Crystal Palace – Newcastle betting tip, prediction & odds 24.04.2024

Premier League, Wednesday, 24.04.2024

The two winners of the past few Premier League weeks will meet head-to-head on Wednesday.

The Magpies’ dreadfully long injury list could put you off a “Crystal Palace Newcastle tip 2”. However, there are plenty of reasons to actually believe in an away win at Selhurst Park!

Crystal Palace celebrated a historic 5-2 win over West Ham United last weekend.

It was the first time they had scored five goals in one game in a London derby in England’s top division. The aim now is to keep this good mood alive for the next home game.

Thanks to this show of strength, the Eagles have finally reached the safety zone. With an eleven-point lead over the relegation places, even the last critic should fall silent from now on when it comes to staying in the league

However, the Londoners’ upcoming opponents are also on the rise! Because Newcastle United are chasing the European Cup zone.

Recent victories over Fulham (1-0) and Tottenham (4-0) have catapulted the Magpies up to sixth place in the table, which would at least guarantee their participation in the 2024/25 edition of the Conference League.

In any case, Newcastle played like the top team they were against Spurs last year despite the significant personnel absences. A quality that could pay off statistically in London on Wednesday.

Crystal Palace have lost 10 of their last 13 Premier League games against clubs that finished in one of the first to fourth places in the 2022/23 season just ended!

In addition, Newcastle are much more resilient when it comes to English weeks! Their squad depth often allows them to perform at a high level in timely back-to-backs – even now!

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, have lost six of their last nine outings on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, so a bigger drop-off in performance is to be expected from them compared to the weekend.

Then there’s the direct comparison. This also makes me confident that I have not embarked on a technical suicide mission with my sports bet.

The Londoners have not won any of their last five Premier League games against Newcastle and have not even scored in their last four encounters (3 draws, 2 defeats)

All these facts speak strongly in favor of the visitors, who have only just clinched the UECL starting berth but will be determined to defend it at all costs against Manchester United.

Consequently, I’m giving myself a jolt and placing a win bet on the visitors, even though the injury list is really long and includes several key players.

Key players such as Almiron, Joelinton and Wilson are injured, but the “momentum” and the bombastic atmosphere from the 4-0 win against Spurs just under a week ago outweigh this significant shortcoming.

In addition, of course, there are the Crystal Palace Newcastle odds, which made a corresponding gamble palatable to me in the first place.

Because with handsome odds of 2.40 for an NUFC win, I’m happy to let you talk to me.

You also have the opportunity to hedge against the possibility of a late equalizer from the Londoners with a double chance X2 bet at bookmaker NEObet.

The average odds of 1.47 traded for this could also be suitable for being perceived as a single bet – especially if you are a customer of a betting provider without tax.

As already mentioned, many of the visitors’ key players are injured, but one of them is currently keeping them afloat.

In fact, I find it hard not to advise you to bet on Alexander Isak, who seems to be scoring at will and from all angles at the moment.

The Swede has scored seven goals in his last six Premier League appearances for Newcastle, with six of those goals coming in home games.

In total, he has scored 17 goals this season, which is tied with Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the highest number of goals scored by a Swedish player in a single Premier League season in 2016-17.

Conclusion: It’s incredible how persistently bad luck has dogged Newcastle this season. But although Eddie Howe had to make a number of personnel changes against Spurs, they still managed a 4-0 win against this strong opponent.

They also had a whole week longer than Crystal Palace to prepare for the upcoming match. Especially as I have the feeling that the Londoners will take it easy now that they have achieved their goal for the season.

But the best reason for my Crystal Palace Newcastle betting tip is definitely the extremely high NUFC odds. The odds are at an impressive 2.45, even though the Magpies dominated the first round duel 4-0

My tip: Win Newcastle United
