Liverpool vs Newcastle prediction, odds, betting tips and best bets for Premier League match

After beating Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor with relative ease last time out, Liverpool jumped to the top of the Premier League standings — a position that was further strengthened by Arsenal and Aston Villa’s subsequent losses.

That means they began the final English top-flight matchday of 2023 at the summit and even though Newcastle United pose another difficult proposition, Jurgen Klopp and his side will be confident of winning again here.

BET: Liverpool vs. Newcastle latest odds on DraftKings

That’s mostly due to the Reds’ fantastic home form this season: they remain unbeaten through their opening nine outings at Anfield in the Premier League.

The hosts also hold an absolute stranglehold over Newcastle at this venue, as the Magpies have failed to win on any of their prior 27 league visits since last taking victory back in April 1994. That won’t exactly come as music to the ears of boss Eddie Howe, who has seen his side really struggle of late.

Liverpool vs Newcastle best bet

  • Pick: Under 2.5 goals scored
  • Odds: +175 (DraftKings)

Given that Newcastle have really struggled of late and Liverpool have only conceded six times across nine home league outings at Anfield, it’s very difficult to ignore just how good the value is on the under 2.5 goals scored selection with DraftKings.

At +175, there won’t be many Premier League matches this season that hold better odds for that same bet and we think that it’s definitely worth the punt.

As mentioned before, Liverpool have looked strong defensively this campaign, especially on home soil, keeping five clean sheets in nine attempts. That’s seen them hold teams like Manchester United, Brentford and Aston Villa, amongst others, goalless at this venue and with Newcastle not firing on all cylinders of late, another shutout wouldn’t surprise here.

Liverpool vs Newcastle prop bet

  • Pick: Darwin Nunez to score anytime
  • Odds: +125 (DraftKings)

There are quite a few reasons to expect Darwin Nunez to get on the scoresheet in this latest outing against Newcastle.

Starting last time out, he opened the scoring for the Reds versus Burnley with a sweetly struck shot from just outside the box to take his tally to eight goals through 27 competitive appearances this campaign.

Two of those came in the reverse fixture at St. James’ Park, as he helped his team to an unlikely 2-1 victory off the bench.
