Burnley v Newcastle: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Burnley have only three more matches to save their season in the Premier League, but things have been looking up for the Clarets recently and they could make life tough for visiting Newcastle.

The Magpies still have plenty to play for themselves with a top-six berth and European football still within reach with four games to go.

Burnley snatched a crucial point in a 1-1 draw with Manchester United last Saturday, while on the same day Newcastle relegated Sheffield United with a 5-1 mauling at St James' Park.

But Newcastle have been less successful on their travels this season, posting only four away wins in the Premier League, and Burnley could cause them problems.

Burnley v Newcastle betting tips and predictions

Burnley or draw double chance - 4/5

Burnley have collected a paltry 24 points from 35 games in the Premier League this season, but a quarter of their points tally (six) has been accumulated in their last five assignments.

Indeed, the Clarets have lost only one of their last eight matches in the top flight to reignite their survival pursuit.

As part of that streak, they have beaten Brentford and Sheffield United and held Chelsea, Wolves, Brighton and United to stalemates.

They have conceded on average two goals per game in the league this season, but they have tightened up a bit recently - shipping only five goals in as many matches since the start of April.

Vincent Kompany will be determined to take the relegation battle to the final day of the season, when they welcome lowly rivals Nottingham Forest to Turf Moor in what could be an explosive six-pointer.

Before then, they host Newcastle and visit Tottenham and will view this weekend's encounter as the more winnable tie.

Newcastle are fresh from a 5-1 thrashing of Sheffield United but they have blown hot and cold this season, recording 16 wins and 13 defeats in the league.

Home comforts are also key for the Magpies, who have collected only 14 of their 53 points on their travels this season.

A win may be beyond Burnley's reach, but they have shown recently they can hold firm for draws and a share of the spoils could be on the cards.

Correct score 1-1 - 8/1

A value pick in this contest at Turf Moor is a 1-1 correct score.

Burnley's renewed defensive grit has resulted in low-scoring matches of late and three of their last five matches - against Wolves, Brighton and Manchester United - finished 1-1.

Two of those fixtures took place at Turf Moor, where Burnley should feel confident of nullifying Newcastle's attacking prowess and the reverse fixture back in September also produced only two goals as the Tynesiders ran out 2-0 winners.

Alexander Isak to score at anytime - 11/10

Although Newcastle's goalscoring opportunities could be limited by determined Burnley, Alexander Isak could be worth a pick in the goalscorer markets.

There is no obvious candidate to find the net in the Burnley team but Isak has been in red-hot form recently, netting braces in Newcastle's home wins over both Tottenham and Sheffield United.

Those four strikes contributed to a tally of 19 goals in 26 matches in the Premier League this term, meaning the Swedish international is averaging 0.88 goals per 90 minutes in the top-flight.
