Newcastle vs Brentford Betting Predictions

Both Teams To Score: 1.75 / -133

Newcastle have failed to keep a clean sheet all season. Five of the six last matches for both clubs in all competitions ended with both sides scoring.

Newcastle Win: 2.79 / -207

The Magpies provide good value coming into this match and should experience a bounce after the sacking of Steve Bruce. The players have been training hard and will be keen to impress and get Howe a debut win.

Brentford are in a slump. They appeared to have tripped themselves up after starting the season so brightly. Opponents are beginning to work them out and it seems like the players are no longer playing with the adrenaline rush of a newly promoted side.
