Newcastle have been playing aggressive football in recent matches, scoring an average of 3.6 goals per match in their last eight matches. A surprise 4-1 win over PSG despite 31% possession shows an ability to take chances. They have also managed to score an impressive 20 goals in their last eight matches, conceding just nine.
On the other hand, Crystal Palace have been showing conservative form lately. They defend reliably, conceding just seven goals in their last eight matches, but scoring only seven. Their style is more about dealing with pressure, as seen in the match against Manchester United, where they achieved victory despite having 23% possession.
In the last head-to-head meetings of both teams, a minimum number of goals was recorded, and in some cases even goalless results. The high number of corners in these matches, especially from Newcastle, suggests that while chances are created, finishing is an issue.
Newcastle are in decent form, having won notable victories in recent matches. This is confirmed by victories over such a strong team as PSG and a dominant victory over Sheffield United with a score of 8:0. Despite Crystal Palace's recent matches being mostly draws, given their recent results and home ground advantage, it is likely that Newcastle will be able to win this match. Newcastle's current form and home ground advantage make them favorites to win this match. Their recent performances, particularly the comfortable win over PSG, coupled with Crystal Palace's somewhat inconsistent form tip the odds in Newcastle's favour. This bet offers a good balance of risk and reward, making it the best bet in this match.
This bet may seem ambitious given that Crystal Palace haven't been scoring much lately. However, with Newcastle displaying a high level of attacking prowess of late, as evidenced by their 8-0 demolition of Sheffield United and 4-1 win over PSG, there could be a flurry of goals in this match. A bet on Over 3.5 is certainly high risk given the nature of the teams, but with high risk comes high reward. If both teams play open, this bet could be a winner.
