Arsenal v Newcastle Bet Builder

After a disappointing performance against Porto on Wednesday, Arsenal enters Saturday’s match against Newcastle as favorites. Here’s our betbuilder for the Arsenal Newcastle Utd match.

Arsenal’s approach to that Champions League defeat has been criticized for a lack of ambition and intensity, has drawn scrutiny, particularly Mikel Arteta‚Äôs decision to limit squad rotation.

In the Premier League, however, Arsenal has been in formidable form, securing five consecutive wins and netting a total of 21 goals during this streak.

Other bet builder games of note:

They are currently five points behind the league leaders but face a Newcastle team that’s been unbeaten in their last four games. Newcastle, having rediscovered their scoring prowess, will visit the Emirates with a fearless attitude, knowing they have nothing to lose.

Newcastle’s recent form includes four consecutive away wins across all competitions, and they previously triumphed over Arsenal in the reverse fixture. Under Eddie Howe’s management, the team seems to have recovered from a challenging phase in late 2023.

The recent domestic performances of these teams indicate a high likelihood of goal-rich encounters. Despite key injuries in their offensive lines, both managers have prioritized aggressive, goal-oriented strategies.

Arsenal’s five Premier League games since the beginning of the year have been particularly high-scoring, with the team averaging an impressive 4.2 goals per game. Although their defense has been robust, conceding just two goals, Newcastle’s attacking prowess poses a significant threat to Arsenal’s backline.

Newcastle has been averaging 2.67 goals per game in the Premier League this year, consistently scoring at least two goals in each of their six matches, even against formidable opponents like Manchester City and Liverpool.

While Newcastle’s offense under Howe has flourished, their defense has been less convincing, also conceding an average of 2.67 goals per league game in 2024, with both teams scoring in each match.

Recommended Bet: Both Teams To Score at odds of 1.72

Bet Builder Tip: For a higher odds bet builder, I’m backing a high-scoring game. Newcastle’s recent matches against Manchester City and Liverpool saw five and six goals respectively, so betting on over 4.5 goals as they face Arsenal, another title contender, seems a promising choice.

With Arsenal scoring five goals in their last two matches, the conditions are ripe for another high-scoring game on Saturday. Additionally, I’m predicting an Arsenal victory, given their formidable attacking form.

Newcastle has only managed three away wins in the Premier League this season, conceding an average of 2.08 goals in these games.

Another component of the bet builder is Bukayo Saka scoring during the match. Saka has tallied six goals in five Premier League matches in 2024, scoring in his last four games, including two penalties.

Benefiting from Arsenal’s creative play, Saka is receiving an average of 15.51 progressive passes per 90 minutes, ranking him in the 98th percentile among attackers in Europe’s top five leagues. This positions him well to score against Newcastle.
