The Premier League gets going this weekend at Villa Park as Newcastle come town live on BT Sport and we have free football betting tips.
These two sides had vastly different fortunes on the opening weekend but against vastly different opposition and both will fancy their chances on Saturday.
Villa looked to have a tricky away trip to Stoke on the cards but came away with a 1-0 win that should not be sniffed at. Stoke made the Britannia Stadium a really difficult place to go last season and to pick up a win there on the first day is a good foundation. However, Villa’s home form was not up to scratch last season picking up just 21 points at Villa Park so that will need to be improved upon.
Newcastle lost their opening weekend fixture but they were playing the Champions Manchester City. For long segments of the game Newcastle made a good account of themselves and despite not registering a shot on target were unlucky to lose 2-0. The lack of shots on goal will be a real worry but Manchester City did defend well.
Newcastle did the double over Aston Villa last season as they registered a 2-1 win at Villa Park and a 1-0 win at St James’ Park. The bookies can’t separate these two sides though with Villa slight favourites at 6/4 and Newcastle at 15/8 while the draw is 12/5.
As I already mentioned Newcastle failed to register a single shot on target against Manchester City and looked to be screaming out for a centre forward, Villa only managed 2 on target against Stoke so neither side is particularly prolific. Under 2.5 goals is available at 4/5 with Ladbrokes.
Newcastle seem to quite like playing Villa of late, they have won their last 3 against them and are unbeaten in 6 against the Birmingham side. 4 of the last 5 meetings between the two have also seen Newcastle score first so Newcastle to score first is also worth a bet at 23/20 with Ladbrokes as well.
