Newcastle vs Crystal Palace odds
Odds correct as of 17:00 on October 19
Newcastle’s excellent winning run that includes victories over Man City and PSG, as well as an 8-0 thrashing of Sheffield United, finally came to an end last time out when they drew 2-2 away at West Ham. As a result, the Magpies are now four places and four points adrift of the Champions League places. However, given they lost three of their opening four games of the season but remain unbeaten since, Eddie Howe’s men remain in pretty good shape.
Palace, meanwhile, will be even happier with their start to the season, sitting ninth in the table, just one point behind Newcastle with the second-best defensive record in the Premier League. Palace have conceded 18 goals while facing 64 shots on target in the Premier League since Roy Hodgson returned as manager in April. Among sides to have participated in the competition in 2022/23 and 2023/24, only Manchester City have conceded fewer goals (14), and only Man City (50) and Arsenal (63) have faced fewer shots on target in this time.
It is probably the case then that both managers are hoping to see different things from their sides moving forwards. Newcastle haven’t been as defensively sound as they were in 2022/23, whereas Palace are not as enterprising around the box as they could be with their talented young players.

Crystal Palace have the second-best defensive record in the Premier League, conceding just seven goals, while Newcastle have kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven matches across all competitions.

Newcastle vs Crystal Palace Bet-Builder tip
Each of the three previous meetings between the two sides in 2023 have finished 0-0, while there has only been three goals scored across the last five matches between the two sides. However, Newcastle have won four of their last five matches across all competitions, while forward Alexander Isak has scored in each of his last three Premier League games and if he finds the back of the net here, he will become just the second Swedish player to score in four consecutive Premier League matches after Freddie Ljungberg.
