Odds (as of May 5, 2024):

  • Newcastle Win: -180 (or 1.80 in decimal odds) – Home advantage and Champions League push make Newcastle slight favorites.
  • Draw: +330 (or 3.30) – A close encounter with both teams cancelling each other out is a possibility.
  • Brighton Win: +550 (or 5.50) – An away win would be a major upset, but Brighton’s European ambitions could be a motivator.
  • Total Goals Over 2.5: -120 (or 1.20) – Both teams can score, with Newcastle’s attack and Brighton’s tactical approach in mind.
  • Both Teams to Score (Yes): -100 (or 1.00) – Given both teams’ attacking threats, goals are likely at both ends.

Head-to-Head (H2H):

  • Last Season (2022/23 – assuming this is the relevant season):
    • Review data for last season’s H2H record to understand past performance in this fixture. Consider factors like:
      • Results (wins, draws, losses)
      • Goals scored and conceded
      • Performance at each team’s home stadium
  • Overall (last 10 meetings – if data is available):
    • Analyze past encounters for historical trends. However, recent form often carries more weight, with Newcastle’s current momentum and Brighton’s European aspirations being crucial factors.
