Struggling Newcastle United go to Elland Road on Saturday and hope for a positive result

Newcastle have suffered at the hands of Watford and Manchester United in their previous two matches, with two successive draws. They go into this game with the hope of taking all three points. This is a important stat to take into account, as they've won one game, drawn nine fixtures, and lost 10 games. Also, with no win in 19 of their last 20 meetings now for Newcastle, there is minimal fear for opposition teams that face them. Of course, The Magpies will also have to deal with the possibility of conceding goals. A goalless match is not expected in their favor (93.46%).

The club’s goals per match average is currently 1.0, so scoring goals against Leeds could be easy for them. If you’re betting on the correct score of the game, it may be best for you to consider that the number of goals scored by The Magpies might stick close to their goals per match average.

As per the visiting team, Newcastle has scored exactly one goal in its last match. The likelihood of the squad scoring exactly one goal once more at Elland Road is rated at 41.67%.

Moreover, Newcastle face the game really worried about their rival, better positioned in the standing at the moment. Why are they so succesful?Maybe because they have a superb forward line? The Whites have 80% of scoring percentage, while Newcastle have 75%; in any case, if you’re betting on both teams to score (BTTS), you should take this into account.

Leeds United's Premier League season, has so far seen them gain 22 points, going into this game

Following two straight wins for Leeds in their most recent games, they will be keen to continue that form going into this fixture. Betting on the match winner? Then you should consider that they've won five matches, drawn seven games, and lost eight meetings. Additionally, Leeds keep finding the winning formula this season, that’s two in a row now. Leeds have a duty to keep a clean sheet this game, in the Premier League everything is to be played and all the points matter. It is not the most likely for them in this game, but not impossible, because the probability that they will defeat their rivals to zero in Elland Road is 28.33%.

The club’s goals per match average is currently 1.2, so scoring goals against Newcastle could be easy for them. If you’re betting on the correct score of the game, it may be best for you to consider that the number of goals scored by The Whites might stick close to their goals per match average.

The local team, The Whites, scored exactly two goals in its last meeting against its opponents. The chances of having the exact tally once more on Saturday is rated at 31.35%


Marcelo Bielsa’s The Whites are having a great season. Their advantage over their rival leds us to believe that they will score in the next 90 minutes. If you’re betting on what the score will be at the 1st half, count on The Whites to bring it because their average score after the 1st half this season is 0.55.


Corners always mean a great scoring opportunity for Leeds; their total for and against amount to 84 and 95, respectively. Make your corners over/under bets now!

Additionally, the two teams have been unable to break the deadlock in the last three games, with draws on each occasion. The last time both teams met in this competition was September 2021 and the score line ended up with a 1-1 draw. Previous matches between this pair have been high-scoring affairs and the odds of both sides finding the net on Saturday are high (66.23%) so it should be an entertaining match.

Combined that’s two goals, which is a important feature to know because this gives us a reference for what a clever over/under (or Asian Total) bet could look like. What will the total score be this go around? Could the scoresheet be similar for the imminent match? We think it might be, but you make the final decision! This is what we think it might be, what are your thoughts on this?
