Crystal Palace v Newcastle betting tips: Magpies move on from Bruce
Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash
The Magpies begin life after Steve Bruce as we look at the odds to find some Crystal Palace v Newcastle betting tips.
Palace earned a 2-2 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates on Monday while Newcastle’s new owners saw their side lose 3-2 at home to Tottenham last Sunday and dismissed Bruce on Wednesday.
Saturday’s match, which takes place at Selhurst Park, kicks off at 3pm.
Crystal Palace v Newcastle match odds
Patrick Vieira was a little unfortunate to see his Palace side record their third draw in as many Premier League games as Alexandre Lacazette’s stoppage-time leveller rescued Arsenal a draw on Monday.
While the former Arsenal captain failed to make a winning return to the club he led to three Premier League titles, Palace at least showed plenty of fighting spirit.
Yet they conceded a late goal to Brighton, which also cost them two points.
Palace are, however, looking to go unbeaten in their opening five home league matches of a season for the first time since 1996-97 in the second tier, last doing so in the top-flight back in 1990-91.
They are 19/20 to win.
The Eagles have drawn five of their eight Premier League games this season.
They have tallied the most draws at this stage a Premier League campaign since 2014-15, when both Arsenal and Sunderland had five draws in their first eight.
The draw is on offer at odds of 13/5 in the Crystal Palace v Newcastle betting tips.
Newcastle’s defeat at home to Spurs means they have failed to win any of their first eight Premier League matches of a season for only the third time.
Graeme Jones will lead the team on an interim basis, starting with Saturday's trip to Crystal Palace.
He will be supported by the coaching team of Steve Agnew, Stephen Clemence, Ben Dawson and Simon Smith. https://t.co/uvkGGdpEUa

Newcastle have lost more Premier League away games in London than any other side in the competition (81).
However, the Magpies have won six of their last 12 top-flight visits to the capital (D1 L5) and are 3/1 to win at Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace v Newcastle head-to-head
Newcastle have won just one of their last six away Premier League games against Palace (D3 L2), though it was in this exact fixture last season when they triumphed 2-0.
Palace have won three of their last five Premier League games against Newcastle (L2), more than they had in their first 15 against them in the competition (W2 D5 L8).
Seven of the last nine meetings have seen one side fail to score and it is 8/11 for that trend to continue in the Crystal Palace v Newcastle betting tips.
Nine of the last 11 meetings have seen fewer than three goals scored and it is 17/20 under 2.5 will be notched this time.
Disappointed we couldn’t get a deserved win at Arsenal but a lot of positives to take away from the game.
Thanks to the fans last night – you were amazing 🙏🏾🦅🟡🔴🔵 pic.twitter.com/ZOo9fYpeej

Crystal Palace v Newcastle key battles
Newcastle have defensive issues.
They have kept just three clean sheets in their last 25 Premier League games, with each of those coming against the three relegated sides last season.
The Magpies have conceded more goals than any other Premier League side so far this term (19) and they are 19/5 to keep a clean sheet.
Palace have done most damage in the second half, so Vieira will hope for more ahead of the interval.
The Eagles have scored nine of their 10 goals after the break and it is 12/5 the first goal of the game will be scored after half-time.
