Newcastle vs West Brom 6 Feb 2016: EPL Preview and Predictions

St James Park will be hosting a match this weekend as the home team, Newcastle will be playing West Brom in a game which will have huge implication on the battle for avoiding relegation. That being said, this is not going to be the best game to watch since neither team are on form but nevertheless there in value in this encounter so we shall have a look into it.

Newcastle are coming off another loss, this time it is at the hands of Everton at Goodison. This team currently sits in 18th spot but in all honest I think that they are playing some good football at time. This weekend they will hope that they can get the three points since they are at home and their opposition are on the same level as them at best. This is probably the last chance for Newcastle since it is the best opportunity I have seen for them to win and if they don’t take it then I am afraid it will be near impossible to avoid relegation.

West Brom on the other hand will know that a win here will be huge since it will all but ruin one of the rivals in the fact that they will be surely relegated. That being said, I don’t think the Hawthorns will be good enough here and I think we will see the Magpies get a pretty easy win at home.

As far as betting is concerned, I think this game will be close enough to bet on the outright result. Newcastle are paying good enough for us to put money on them to win so that is my initial bet. I also like the fact that this likely to be a high scoring game so taking the over 2.5 goals bet is also value in my opinion.
