Premier League Picks: Back Liverpool vs Newcastle

Last season saw Newcastle finish fourth, edging Liverpool for the final Champions League spot by four points and returning to Europe’s top competition after two decades. Today, however, Newcastle sit eighth in the English Premier League table whilst Liverpool find themselves atop England’s top-flight, two points above second-place Arsenal, who have a game in hand, and 13 above Newcastle. We’re backing the Reds to open the year with a win against a weary Magpies side in our betting picks.

Over/Under Pick: Under 3 goals (-108)

Since kicking off December with a 4-3 win against Fulham, Liverpool have had various low-scoring fixtures, including a 2-0 win vs. Everton, a 1-1 draw to Luton and a 1-1 draw to Manchester City. This month, they’ve had four Premier League matches feature under 2.5 goals, including the last three, and they’ll be taking on a Newcastle side whose last two away matches saw relatively little in front of goal – a 1-1 draw to Chelsea and a penalty shootout in the EFL Cup, and a 1-0 loss to Luton. We’re backing this one to be a low-scoring fixture in our Premier League bets.

 

Moneyline Pick: Liverpool to Win (-215)

You don’t have to be a Premier League expert to know that Liverpool are favorites to get another win against the Magpies. They have struggled to cope with a jam-packed fixture list and one of the biggest reasons has been their injury-plagued squad, which has laid bare their lack of depth. With the likes of Nick Pope, Joe Willock and Harvey Barnes missing with long-term injuries, Eddie Howe’s side has seen their form take a nosedive recently and it could prove costly against a Liverpool side that is looking to close out their year with another victory at Anfield. Make sure to include a Liverpool win in your betting predictions.

 

Player Prop Pick: Darwin Nunez to Score (+120)

After the Newcastle match, Liverpool will be without top scorer Mohamed Salah for the next few weeks due to the African Cup of Nations, and they’ll be counting on Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez to provide firepower in attack as they look to maintain their spot atop the table. The first time these two sides played in 2023, Darwin opened the scoring within 10 minutes in a 2-0 victory. In August, he came off the bench in the 77th minute and scored a brace to lead Liverpool to a 2-1 victory. Darwin opened the scoring early on in their 2-0 win vs. Burnley at the weekend, his first Liverpool goal since Nov. 1, and he’ll be high on confidence against Newcastle. If you’re planning to bet on soccer, bet on Darwin scoring.
