Reason For West Ham vs Newcastle Betting Tips

  • Newcastle were unbeaten in five of their last seven meetings with West Ham.
  • Newcastle took four points from two meetings with West Ham last season.
  • The last six encounters between these clubs produced 4.16 goals per 90 minutes.
  • West Ham won just four of their last 16 Premier League home assignments.

West Ham’s uncertain summer

Following a strong end to the 2019/20 Premier League campaign, where West Ham lost just one of their final seven matches to extinguish any lingering relegation hopes, Irons fans have once again been left frustrated by their club’s ambition in the transfer market over the brief summer hiatus.

With no major signings through the door at the London Stadium, the anger simmering among Hammers supporters threatened to spill over when the club decided to sanction the sale of promising winger Grady Diangana’s to Premier League new boys West Brom – a switch that drew an emotional reaction from skipper Mark Noble on Twitter.

The negativity generated by the club’s slow market manoeuvres has heightened pressure on manager David Moyes, who knows that the knives will be out if West Ham underperform at home to Newcastle in Irons’ season opener on Saturday, but having taken just one point from two meetings with the Magpies last term, the Scottish manager will be fearing the worst.

Spirits high at Newcastle

Despite the collapse of the Saudi-led takeover earlier this summer, there is a feel-good factor around Newcastle at present after the club pulled a trio of excellent looking signings out of the bag this week.

Former Norwich defender Jamal Lewis moved to St. James’ Park, where he joined ex-Bournemouth hitman Callum Wilson and ex-Cherrie Ryan Fraser – three additions that have Magpies fans understandably excited.

Newcastle, who finished in a respectable 13th spot last term, depended heavily on the solid defensive structure laid out by Steve Bruce to gather points, however, with the captures of Wilson and Fraser in particular, and the blossoming talent of Allan Saint-Maximin already in tow, the Magpies could play more expansively in 2020/21.

Newcastle to avoid defeat in the capital?

With something of a dark cloud hanging over West Ham at present and the relationship between supporters, players and owners seemingly fractured, Newcastle will feel that they have a set of circumstances to take advantage of this weekend.

The Magpies performed well against West Ham last season, beating them 3-2 at the London Stadium last November before they held a rejuvenated Irons outfit to a 2-2 draw at St. James’ Park during Project restart back in July.

In total, Newcastle were unbeaten in five of their last seven meetings with West Ham since 2016, and with morale looking low in the Irons ranks, backing the Magpies to extend that run on Saturday through the double chance market looks a smart move at the prices available, while our correct score prediction points towards a 2-2 draw.

With nine goals plundered across 180 minutes of action, the two skirmishes between West Ham and Newcastle last season weren’t short on drama, though they were in keeping with the pattern of thrilling encounters produced by the teams in recent years.

The last six duels between the Irons and the Magpies produced 4.16 goals per 90 minutes, and having finished level at 2-2 in their last head-to-head, another high scoring draw looks possible
