Two of the newly promoted sides to the Premier League will face off as Huddersfield Town host Newcastle United in the West Yorkshire town. These are two of the best teams in Northern England and I am expecting both sets of fans to be passionate about this game which means we are in for a really good 90 minutes of football.

Huddersfield Town beat Crystal Palace away from home on the opening day of the season meaning that they currently sit near the top of the table. This side looked good in their first game as they played a very physical game of football. We can expect the same and in this game, they will have the home crowd behind them meaning that it will not be an easy game for Newcastle.

On the other hand, Newcastle is a much better team than Huddersfield Town and I think they will show this in the game. The Magpies were dominant last season and I think we can expect similar this time around. Newcastle does have some players missing for this game but they have a strong squad and I think they will win this game with some ease.

We are getting a good price on Newcastle winning this game and as a result, I think it is the best option in terms of betting. The Magpies are the underdogs and I think they will win so this is a great value bet. I think this will also be a high scoring gaming judging from past games between these two teams so the over 2.5 goals is also a good bet in my opinion.

 

Pick:
Newcastle
