Arsenal vs Newcastle Prediction & Betting Tips

This Monday, you have a chance to win some money betting on the Premier League match taking place at the Emirates Stadium in London, where Arsenal will welcome Newcastle. To find out what to bet on, make sure to read our Arsenal vs Newcastle prediction and betting tips till the very end!

Without trying to spoil our Arsenal vs Newcastle prediction, we gotta say that the host team is the favorite here. Just by looking at their current table positions, you will see that Arsenal are a better side than Newcastle. The problem is that bookies know this as well, which is why the odds on Arsenal to win aren’t too attractive.

This is why it’s better to focus on goals. And considering how prolific Arsenal have been when it comes to goal-scoring, we should see many of them on Monday. Arsenal is currently the 3rd team in terms of goals scored, behind only Manchester City and Liverpool. With 63 goals in 30 rounds, Arsenal have been scoring over 2 goals per game on average.

And a big majority of the goals they’ve scored this season were scored at the Emirates. In 16 matches played at their stadium, the Gunners have scored a total of 37 goals. In comparison, they’ve scored only 26 in away games.

Another thing suggesting that we’re gonna see many goals on Monday is the fact that Arsenal have been playing really great lately. They’ve won 4 out of 5 previous Premier League games, scoring a total of 12 goals along the way. And their good run has brought them among top 4, meaning that if they stay there, they’re gonna play Champions League next season. And that’s another reason why they’re gonna give their utmost on Monday.


In order for our Arsenal vs Newcastle betting tips regarding a high number of goals to come true, Newcastle need to play their part as well. They need either to score a few or get hammered by Arsenal. Right now, the first option seems more plausible.

The thing is that although they’re not far from the bottom of the table, the Magpies have been surprisingly good at defending. They’ve allowed 40 goals so far, which puts them among top 7 best defensive teams in the league.

And when it comes to scoring, they haven’t been great generally speaking, although they’ve started improving lately. Actually, Newcastle have scored 9 goals in the previous 5 Premier League matches. What’s gotta worry them ahead of their trip to London is that they have a very bad record against Arsenal. In fact, they’ve lost each of their previous 6 duels played at the Emirates.

Arsenal vs Newcastle Prediction

Arsenal will win this game, I have zero doubts about that. However, I don’t think it’s gonna be as easy as expected. The thing is that Newcastle have Salomon Rondon, a tall and strong centre-forward who can blow away Arsenal’s defenders, especially Mustafi who’s been prone to errors this entire season.

On top of that, Newcastle are in a goal-scoring mood, so I really do expect them to score on Monday. Of course, this doesn’t mean that a goal against Arsenal will bring them points, it won’t…
