Arsenal vs Newcastle Prediction & Pick
Every match down the stretch means something for both of these teams as Arsenal is only a single point back of Manchester City for the top spot on the EPL table and Newcastle is only six points above Liverpool for a top-4 spot. Securing a Champions League berth would be huge for the Magpies.
With a lot on the line here, I'll back a draw. After all, these teams played to a hard-fought 0-0 draw back in early January as defense reigned supreme. Both of these teams rank right next to each other in total saves and clean sheets on the year, making the concept of a draw seem even more likely.
A draw does more for the home team, so look for Newcastle to earn an early lead and play it safe.
Final Score Prediction: Arsenal: 1 | Newcastle: 1
Arsenal vs Newcastle Best Bet
Backing a draw at +260 odds is a great option for any bettors looking to get more bang for their buck, but I find myself taking both teams to score as my best bet. Taking on juiced odds is worth it here considering Arsenal has not been held scoreless since February 4 and Newcastle has scored at least 1 goal in eight of its last nine matches. These are two offensive units worth trusting on Sunday.
Bet: Both Teams to Score - Yes (-196)
