Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Tips & Predictions

After a 9-0 drubbing of Bournemouth, Liverpool are big favourites for their Premier League match with Newcastle on Wednesday night.

Newcastle come into this fixture missing several of their key players with Callum Wilson and Bruno Guimaraes both sidelined. Allan Saint-Maximin and Kieran Trippier are listed as doubts, while club-record signing Alexander Isak isn’t expected to be available yet.

Liverpool have their own availability concerns, with as many as 11 players potentially out, including the suspended Darwin Nunez and long-term absentees Thiago, Diogo Jota and Naby Keita. 

Half Time/Full Time: Liverpool/Liverpool

20/23 (Coral)

Liverpool have won 14 of 16 at home. Their confidence took a dent early in the season with just two points from three matches, but Jurgen Klopp’s side will be feeling on top of the world after dismantling Bournemouth on Saturday.

The absences hold Newcastle back here. Liverpool often start quickly at home – they were leading at half-time in 21 of 38 matches overall last season, and conceded just four first half goals at Anfield throughout 2021-22. 

This could be one-way traffic from the first whistle. With the hosts at just 6/19 to win the match, the half time/full time market presents the best value. 

Total Cards: Under 3.5 

13/20 (BetVictor)

Liverpool have been shown just four cards this season (one of which was Nunez’s red). Newcastle have been booked eight times, but have the ninth-fewest fouls per match.

Andre Marriner is taking charge of this match, who ranked slightly below average in cards shown per game in 2021-22. He generally lets matches flow, resulting in a low foul count. 

With two teams who aren’t particularly prone to receiving bookings, the under is good value here. 

Total Home Goals: Over 2.5 

19/20 (Sporting Index)

Liverpool averaged 2.58 goals per game in home league matches last season. Of course, they are coming off an historic nine-goal haul against Bournemouth, and that was even without Mohamed Salah recording a goal contribution.

Klopp’s team scored three or more at Anfield on 13 occasions in 2021-22, and they face a Newcastle defence which allowed three goals against Manchester City under two weeks ago. 

The hosts might be missing key players, but their attack remains potent and should be able to score three or more here.
