Newcastle have a great chance to cement their position in the Premier League top-four race as two other Champions League contending sides, Manchester United and Manchester City play on the weekend against each other. The third-ranked home side is the best defensive side in the competition with just 11 goals conceded since August, three fewer than any other Premier League side in 2022-23. Fulham has played a game more, but are sitting sixth right now, their best-ever Premier League position in January in all their stints in the English top flight. The Cottagers have scored as many goals (32) as Newcastle this season, but have won less than 50% of away games since the season began. Given Newcastle's unbeaten record at St. James' Park and just five goals conceded in 9 games played at this venue, we do not see the Lilywhites dampening their counterparts' numbers.

Newcastle vs Fulham Betting Pick #1: Newcastle to win
Newcastle have not lost lớn Fulham on the last five occasions. Also, the new entrants to the Champions League race also have five wins and four draws from their home games since August. With points dropped against Arsenal recently, we do not see Eddie Howe's men lose on this opportunity to get close to Manchester City and Arsenal, especially with City visiting United on the same weekend. We are going for a Newcastle win in this game priced at 1.50 odds, which is fairly a good return for the high probability it comes with.
It will be a great accumulator, taking the odds to around hai.0+, if a Newcastle win is combined with Under 3.5 goals on Sunday. Fulham have scored against each of their last six opponents, but over 80% of Newcastle's games at home, this year have not seen more than three goals being scored. Moreover, Newcastle have the best defence in the league too (home/away/combined) and they are highly likely to not concede more than one goal if not a clean sheet.
