Aston Villa vs Newcastle: Top free betting tips

Aston Villa take on Newcastle on Tuesday, 30 December as the Villains look to keep their dreams of winning the Premier League alive. Can Newcastle bring Unai Emery's men back to reality or will they pick up a valuable three points to stay in touching distance of Liverpool at the top of the table? Our Aston Villa vs Newcastle prediction is for Aston Villa to run out as comfortable winners against one of the worst away teams in the Premier League this season.

Match result prediction: Aston Villa to win

Aston Villa have been brilliant all season but their home form is what has been the most impressive. They have the best home record in the Premier League with nine wins, one draw and zero losses while only Sheffield United have a worse away record than Newcastle this season. The Magpies have won just once on the road all season which makes his a complete mismatch. Despite all that, you can get Aston Villa at close to evens which makes this a fantastic market to bet on.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals

These two teams last met on the opening day of the season when Newcastle ran riot at St James' Park, beating the Villains 5-1 in what remains their best performance of the season. In reality, the match could have easily ended 6-4 and we expect another end-to-end match on Tuesday. Aston Villa's high line means that there are always going to be chances at both ends which lends itself to this market.

Correct score prediction: Aston Villa 3-1 Newcastle

Aston Villa have lost just one of their last 15 matches in all competitions so it's difficult to see a scenario where an injury-ravaged Newcastle team who have just one away league win all season come to Villa Park and get a result. The Magpies have lost eight of their last nine matches against Premier League opposition and that solitary win was against ten-man Fulham.
