Newcastle vs Bournemouth: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

Newcastle host Bournemouth at St James’ Park this Saturday in the Premier League. The hosts are in search of three points to get back in the conversation for European football whereas Bournemouth look to get into the top half of the table.

These odds are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.

A bad patch of form saw Newcastle slip from the European football spots and an even worse spot of bad form from Bournemouth has seen them slip away from the top half, both looking for a needed win.

Newcastle currently sit seventh in the Premier League after 24 games. The Magpies have 11 wins, three draws and ten losses, leaving them on 36 points.

The Magpies have been on fire in front of goal this season. In 24 games, Newcastle have scored 51 goals, giving them an average of 2.13 goals a game. However, Newcastle have struggled at the other end of the pitch, conceding 39 goals and keeping seven clean sheets.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, currently sit 13th in the Premier League. In 23 games, The Cherries have seven wins, six draws and ten losses which leaves them on 27 points, eight points above the relegation zone and five points from tenth place Wolves.

The Cherries have scored just 31 goals in 24 games, which gives them an average of 1.35 goals a game. However, despite being ranked 16th in goals scored, Bournemouth’s top scorer Dominic Solanke is one of the top scorers in the league with 13 goals, the third most in the league. The Cherries have conceded 44 goals - an average of 1.91 goals conceded a game, and have kept just five clean sheets.

Newcastle and Bournemouth have only met 18 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming in the League Cup in 1963. Newcastle have the slightly better record in the fixture with seven wins in comparison to Bournemouth’s six wins, the other five games ending in a draw.

Other than the loss in November, The Magpies haven’t lost in this fixture since 2017, winning on four occasions and drawing three times.

Form Guide (Last Five Games)

In their last five games in all competitions, Newcastle have three wins, one draw and one loss.

Bernardo Silva opened the scoring for Manchester City in the 26th minute but goals from Isak and Anthony Gordon gave Newcastle the 2 - 1 lead at half time. However, in the second half both Kevin De Bruyne and Oscar Bobb scored to give City the 3 - 2 win.

The Fourth Round of the FA Cup saw Newcastle go to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham. Sean Longstaff grabbed a goal in the first half and Dan Burn found the back of the net in the second half to give Newcastle the 2 - 0 win.

Back in the Premier League, Newcastle took on Aston Villa. A four minute brace from Fabian Schar gave Newcastle the 2 - 0 lead at halftime and an own goal from Alex Moreno gave Newcastle the third early in the second half. Ollie Watkins did score late on but Newcastle held on for the 3 - 1 win.

The next time out saw Newcastle host Luton Town in an eight goal thriller. A brace from Longstaff gave Newcastle the lead but goals from Gabriel Osho and Ross Barkley made it level at half time. A penalty from Carlton Morris and a goal from Elijah Adebayo gave Luton the 4 - 2 lead entering the last 30 minutes. But, goals from Kieran Trippier and Harvey Barnes rescued a 4 - 4 draw.

The last time out for Newcastle was against Nottingham Forest. Bruno Guimaraes’ first goal gave Newcastle the lead but Anthony Elanga quickly equalised. Schar regained the lead for Newcastle but Callum Hudson-Odoi scored in the sixth minute of first half extra time to make it 2 - 2 at halftime. However, Guimaraes completed his brace to grab the 3 - 2 win for Newcastle.

In their last five games in all competitions, Bournemouth have one win, two draws and two losses.

After a goalless first half, both Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota picked up braces in Liverpool’s 4 - 0 dismantling of Bournemouth, where The Cherries had just one shot on target.

In the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, Bournemouth hosted Championship side Swansea. Lloyd Kelly, Alex Scott, Luis Sinisterra, David Brooks and Solanke all scored in the 5 - 0 win for Bournemouth.

Back in the Premier League, Bournemouth took on West Ham. Solanke opened the scoring early for Bournemouth, giving them the lead in the third minute. However, a penalty from James Ward-Prowse in the second half rescued a 1 - 1 draw for West Ham.

Bournemouth scored early on again, this time with a Justin Kluivert goal in the fifth minute against Nottingham Forest. Hudson-Odoi equalised for Forest and despite the late red card to Philip Billing, Bournemouth held on for the 1 -1 draw.

The most recent outing for Bournemouth was against Fulham. Bobby De Cordova-Reid gave Fulham the lead in the sixth minute and Rodrigo Muniz doubled the lead before halftime. Marcos Senesi got Bournemouth on the scoresheet, but another goal from Muniz secured the 3 - 1 win for Fulham.
