Arsenal v Newcastle United Premier League Betting Tips 24/02/2024

Arsenal v Newcastle United

In-form Arsenal will take on Newcastle at the Emirates on Saturday evening, so time for our free Arsenal v Newcastle United Premier League Betting Tips. The Gunners come into the Premier League contest in electric league form but suffered a disappointing Champions League loss in mid-week. Newcastle have been unconvincing in the league recently and continue to show plenty of defensive weaknesses. Overall, there are some interesting picks in this clash, with goals likely. The Arsenal vs Newcastle match kicks off at 8 p.m. It will be shown live on TNT Sports.

Form and Team News

Arsenal kickstarted 2024 with five straight Premier League wins, with 21 goals scored. The Gunners thrashed West Ham (6-0) and Burnley (5-0) in their most recent league successes. However, Mikel Arteta’s side then lost 1-0 at Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday. Newcastle have struggled for consistency recently, winning three, drawing two and losing once in six. Eddie Howe’s side were held to a 4-4 draw with Luton before beating Nottingham Forest 3-2 away. The Magpies returned to St James’ Park on Saturday and came back twice to draw 2-2 with Bournemouth. 

Looking at the team news, Arsenal will be without the injured Jurrien Timber, Gabriel Jesus, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Oleksandr Zinchenko. Midfielder Thomas Partey is also doubtful. Newcastle will be without several first-team players. Sandro Tonali is suspended, while Nick Pope, Matt Targett, Joelinton, Callum Wilson and Elliot Anderson are out. 

Match Winner Bet Tips

The bookmakers have one clear favourite for the Arsenal vs Newcastle fixture this Saturday. Ultimately, the Magpies are considered outsiders for this clash due to their inconsistent form. On the road, Howe’s side has been particularly patchy, with just two away victories in their last nine Premier League games. Due to this, the Toon are as long as 7/1 to win in North London. Newcastle have shown some improvements lately and are undefeated in their last five in all competitions. This could give the visitors confidence heading to the Emirates and a draw comes at 9/2, offered by William Hill. Following their flying start to 2024, we are backing Arsenal to keep winning. The Gunners are incredibly strong at home, winning seven of their last eight league games at the Emirates. Arteta will be desperate to see his side bounce back from mid-week disappointment too, which could add to Arsenal’s firepower. At 2/5 odds, Coral has the best current value for a sixth Gunners league win on the spin.

BTTS Betting Tips

This Arsenal vs Newcastle encounter could be a good selection for goals at both ends. The Gunners have had no problems hitting the net recently, but they have also conceded in three of their last five matches. Newcastle’s defensive woes are clear as the Toon have shipped eight in their last three. However, Howe’s side has a knack for scoring too, with 14 goals in their last five matches. Both sides have the potential to get on the scoresheet and 888Sport have decent value for BTTS Yes at the Emirates. They are providing 8/11 odds for both teams to strike. 

Anytime Goal Scorer Bets

Newcastle have coped well without key attackers in Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson recently. A few players have stepped up to provide a goalscoring threat, and one surprising player to strike recently has been Sean Longstaff. The midfielder has three goals in his last five appearances and has six for the season. Ultimately, Longstaff could be a strong outsider pick, as bet365 are backing him to strike again at 11/1. Our goalscorer pick for Arsenal vs Newcastle is Bukayo Saka. The English winger’s form is hard to ignore, and he has been central to the Gunners’ improving form. Saka has six goals in his last four matches, and he notched back-to-back braces in the wins over West Ham and Burnley. As Arsenal’s leading scorer for the campaign, Saka has shown his capability to strike consistently. We are tipping more goals from the Gunners’ forward this weekend, and Unibet has 33/20 odds for Saka to net once again.
