          Newcastle vs Luton Town: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

          Luton Town make the trip up to St James’ Park to take on Newcastle this Saturday. The Magpies have had a bad patch of form and will be looking to move back up the table whereas The Hatters need three points to get out of the relegation zone.

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

          Newcastle and Luton will both be looking for a big three-point haul this weekend to try and kick-start a run to get either into the European football spots or out of the relegation zone.

          Newcastle currently sit tenth in the Premier League after 21 games. The Magpies have nine wins, two draws and ten losses, leaving them on 29 points, already 11 points behind Aston Villa in the last Champions League spot.

          The Magpies have been busy in front of goal so far this season, scoring 41 goals in 21 games, giving them an average of 1.95 goals a game. However, at the other end of the pitch, Newcastle have been somewhat leaky. In 21 games, Newcastle have conceded 32 goals but have kept seven clean sheets.

          Luton, on the other hand, currently sit 18th in the Premier League. In 20 games, The Hatters have four wins, four draws and 12 losses which leaves them on 16 points, just one point from safety, with a game in hand.

          Despite sitting in the relegation zone, Luton have managed to score 24 goals in 20 games, giving themselves the average of 1.20 goals a game, better than the likes of Manchester United. However, The Hatters have also conceded 38 goals and have kept just one clean sheet.

          Newcastle and Luton have met 52 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming all the way back in 1898. The Magpies have the better record in the fixture with 23 wins in comparison to The Hatters’ 18 wins, the other 11 games ending in a draw.

          This will be the first meeting in the league at St James’ Park since 1993, but the reverse fixture in December did see a surprise win for Luton. Other than the FA Cup clash in 2018, this fixture is a relatively low-scoring one with three 0 - 0 draws in the last eight games.

          Recent Form

          In their last five games in all competitions, Newcastle have two wins and three losses.

          Alexander Isak’s 23rd-minute penalty gave Newcastle the lead against Nottingham Forest, but Chris Wood’s first goal in the added time of the first half levelled it at halftime. However, in the second half, Wood completed his hat-trick to give Forest the 3 - 1 win.

          Next time out was a tricky trip to Anfield for Newcastle. After a goalless first half, Mo Salah opened the scoring just minutes into the second half but Isah equalised within five minutes. Goals from Curtis Jones and Cody Gakpo and a second from Salah meant that Sven Botman’s late goal could only make it 4 - 2.

          In the FA Cup Third Round, Newcastle took on Sunderland in a Tyne-Wear derby. A Daniel Ballard own goal opened the scoring and a brace from Isak gave Newcastle the 3 - 0 win.

          Back in the Premier League, Newcastle hosted Manchester City. Bernardo Silva opened the scoring for City but Isak and Anthony Gordon scored in quick succession to give Newcastle the 2 - 1 lead at halftime. However, a goal from Kevin De Bruyne and a 91st-minute goal from Oscar Bobb gave City the 3 - 2 win.

          In the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, Newcastle took on Fulham. Sean Longstaff and Dan Burn both scored in the 2 - 0 win.

          Newcastle will take on Aston Villa this Tuesday in the Premier League.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Luton have two wins, two draws and one loss.

          A brace from Cole Palmer and a goal from Noni Madueke gave Chelsea a 3 - 0 lead coming into the closing stages of the game. Former Blue Ross Barkley got a goal in the 80th minute and Elijah Adebayo scored in the 87th, but it wasn’t enough as Chelsea held on for a 3 - 2 win.

          In the Third Round of the FA Cup, Luton hosted League One Bolton. Despite having 63% of the possession and 18 shots with six on target, Luton played out a 0 - 0 draw.

          Back in the Premier League, Luton took on Burnley. Zeki Amdouni gave Burnley the lead in the first half, but a controversial goal from Carlton Morris in the 92nd minute grabbed a 1 - 1 draw for Luton.

          The Third Round Replays saw Luton take on Bolton again. Dion Charles gave Bolton the lead in the tenth minute but goals from Tahith Chong and Chiedozie Ogbene gave Luton the 2 - 1 win.

          In the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, it was an all-Premier League clash with Everton. A Vitaliy Mykolenko own goal gave Luton the 1 - 0 lead at halftime, but a goal from Jack Harrison made it level just after halftime. However, a 96th-minute goal from Cauley Woodrow gave Luton the 2 - 1 win.

          Luton faces Brighton in the Premier League on Tuesday.
