Competition: Premier League
Market: Newcastle to beat Brighton
Odds: 11/10 @ Bet365
The final match week of 2017 is upon us and every team in the division is looking to take all three points to end the year in style. The hectic festive period has been one that has allowed teams to pick up a lot of points, while it has proved to be a nightmare month for many other sides, and with this in mind, Newcastle host Brighton on Saturday.
Newcastle have been struggling massively recently and they are in need of a number of wins to drag themselves away from the relegation zone. After 20 matches they have won five times, drawn three and lost 12, while they have scored 19 goals and conceded 30 times. Their paltry collection of 18 points means they are a point above Bournemouth in the relegation zone, and Rafael Benitez will know how important a home game against one of the sides that was promoted with them is. Three points here could be the spark they need to turn the season around, while a defeat could send them on a downward spiral.
For Brighton, this is a chance to further extend their buffer over the relegation zone, with their season proving to something of a success so far. After 20 games they have won five, drawn six and lost nine games, scoring 15 goals and conceding 25 times. The newly-promoted side has been able to pick up 21 points so far, and they have a four-point gap between themselves and 18th. Brighton will feel that this is the perfect chance to strengthen their survival bid, while also dealing a hammer blow to Newcastle. With all of this in mind, we are backing Newcastle with odds of 11/10 from Bet365.
