There will be no Premier League matches this weekend due to international football, so the next round of EPL games will begin on the 30th of March. Not many enjoy international breaks, especially just for friendlies, but at least it gives teams some extra time to get their injured players back.

The first match of Round 30 sees Newcastle take on West Ham at St. James' Park. Both of these teams have their eyes on a European spot next season, and the result of this match could prove huge come May. Read on to find out who I think will claim a massive three points from this match.

🏆 Newcastle vs West Ham: Who Will Win?

After the heroics of last season, Newcastle fans probably did not expect their team to be sitting in 10th place in the table, but they have not been very lucky on the injury front at all. Still, despite not hitting the highs of last year, all is not lost as they are still in with a shout of qualifying for some sort of European competition next season. If they pick up a win in the afternoon kick-off on Saturday, then they will be right back in the mix for trips to the continent next season.

West Ham have made it to yet another quarter-final in Europe, and now their main aim is to ensure that they book themselves a spot in Europe next season via their position in the league. They currently occupy what should be the Europa Conference League spot, but are just three points adrift of Manchester United, who sit in 6th place. There are six or seven teams who will feel that they are still in with a shout of qualifying for the Europa League or Conference League, so the Hammers cannot afford many defeats in the remaining 9 rounds.

This is not an easy match to call, but I think both teams will end up cancelling each other out and that the match will end in a draw. As for the final score, let us go for an entertaining 2-2.

My Prediction: 🏆 Newcastle United 2 West Ham 2 ⚽

💯 Newcastle vs West Ham Match Odds

When Newcastle travelled down to the London Stadium in October last year, they walked away with a point courtesy of a 2-2 draw. They would have walked away with all three, were it not for a last-minute goal by Mohammed Kudus. It was a highly entertaining game of football, and a draw was probably a fair result in the end. The other goal scorers in the game were Soucek and Isak (2x).

The odds available for the upcoming reverse fixture at new UK betting sites and established ones will be formulated from the aforementioned previous result and their current form. In the following tables, you will find five bookies and the odds that they are offering for the match winner, both teams to score, and over/under 2.5 goals.

🏅 Newcastle vs West Ham: Match Winner Odds

The bookies have Newcastle United as the favourites to go on and win this match, but their odds are long enough to tell us that this is not an outcome that they are entirely sure about. This really is one of those matches where all three possible results could happen, and such matches are always worth thinking about since they can offer some good betting value. Below you can see the match winner odds for this Newcastle vs West Ham clash:

Team
Newcastle1.711.711.771.741.75
Draw3.953.954.004.204.20
West Ham3.953.954.204.004.10

Newcastle United vs West Ham: Both Teams To Score Odds

With regard to the popular both teams to score market, my five selected bookies are pretty sure that both Newcastle and West Ham will get on the scoresheet. Given the number of goals that they have both conceded in recent matches, I agree with this and will go into more detail in the next part of this prediction. For now, all you need to do is check out the BTTS odds that are currently available:

Team
Yes1.451.451.481.451.50
No2.502.502.502.432.50

Newcastle vs West Ham: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

They are even more sure that there will be at least three goals scored in this match, while they think that it is unlikely that there will be four or more. Since they think Newcastle will win and that both teams will score, these over/under 2.5 goals odds tell us that they feel Newcastle will win the game 2-1. If you enjoy betting on the over/under total goals market, then below are the odds for there to be over or under 2.5 goals in this game:

Over 2.51.471.471.501.421.45
Under 2.52.442.442.552.552.60

✔️ Newcastle United vs West Ham - Betting Tips

Whether you will be betting on this match using your own money or some free bets, you must do some research before you finalise any bets. One thing that you should always do is check out betting tips from tipsters with plenty of football betting experience. Thus, below you will find four bits of betting advice for this Newcastle vs West Ham game.

  • : Tip 1: Bet on a draw: When it comes to their form over the last ten rounds of matches, these teams cannot be separated as they have both picked up 11 points from the last 30 on offer to them. Furthermore, three of their last five matches against each other have ended in a stalemate. They have similar squad quality, so a draw is a decent shout in my view. Those who want to back the draw can find odds of 4.20 at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: They say that death and taxes are the two certainties of life, but I can add a third one here and this is that both teams will score in this match. These two teams have some very talented attacking players at their disposal, while their defences have not really been up to scratch in the last ten rounds of matches. Newcastle have conceded 2.6 goals per match in their last ten games, while West Ham have conceded 2 goals per game. Those who are certain that both teams will score in this game can find odds of 1.50 at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 3: Bet on Bruno Guimarães to be booked: Some punters like to bet on a particular player to be booked because the odds can be quite enticing for such a market, especially if you place two or three bookings into an accumulator. If you want to place a yellow card bet, then I recommend you consider putting money on Guimaraes as he has picked up a staggering 13 yellow cards this season. You can find odds of 3.15 for the Brazilian to pick up his 14th booking of the season at LeoVegas Sports.
  • Tip 4: Bet on the match to end 2-2: Both of these teams have a stronger attacking unit than their defensive unit, so I think there should be a good number of goals in this match. However, West Ham five draws from their last ten games, so they are struggling to win games but are also not easy to beat. I think this match will end 2-2, and those who agree with me can find odds of 11.10 available for this final score at Betiton Sport.

One final and very important tip that I must give you is to always gamble responsibly by not betting with money that you know you can ill-afford to lose. If you think you have a gambling issue, the professionals at www.begambleaware.org can help you.

1️⃣Newcastle United Update

Newcastle United are sitting in 10th place in the table, having picked up 12 wins, 4 draws, and 12 defeats from the 28 matches that they have played. Throughout this campaign, they averaged 2.12 goals per match, which can only be bettered by the current top four - Man City, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Aston Villa. When it comes to conceding, they are letting in an average of 1.71 goals per game, and have kept just one clean sheet in their last ten matches.

From the last 10 rounds of EPL matches, they have picked up three wins, two draws, and five defeats, which puts them in 11th place in the EPL form table. They have scored 23 goals in this time, but have conceded 26, which is the second-worst defensive record in the division. Below are their previous five Premier League results:

2️⃣West Ham Update

After having played 29 matches, the Hammers are sitting in 7th place with 44 points - 12 wins, 8 draws, and 9 defeats. They are three points adrift of Manchester United in 6th, so they will have their eyes firmly set on another stint in next season's Europa League. Some optimistic West Ham fans might even have eyes for a Champions League spot, but everything would have to go their way between now and the end of the season.

When it comes to their form over the last ten rounds of matches, they are sitting in 13th place. In this time, they have picked up five draws, and they will need to start converting these to wins if they are to achieve their season aims come May. Below are their five previous EPL results:
