Brentford vs Newcastle – England Championship Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
At a particular stage of the season, the promotion battle from the Sky Bet Championship seemed like a very easy task for Newcastle. They were sitting first and winning their games very convincingly. After a series of less-than-ideal results, the team now sits second, but the far more disturbing news for their fans is that their game isn’t working. Can Brentford profit from this bad form?
Brentford vs Newcastle – 14/01/2017
Full Time Result: Brentford 4.00 or 3/1, Draw 3.60 or 13/5, Newcastle 2.00 or 1/1
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.85 or 17/20, Under 1.95 or 19/20
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.72 or, No 2.00 or 1/1
In their direct game on the 16th of January, they will have their home fans on their side as well. It’s worth mentioning that they haven’t lost their last 3 league home games, although they aren’t one of the better teams in the league.
Their current form is better, 8 points from their last 5 games, and this is what they will hope to take them towards the three points on Monday. Even if they lose, the fans won’t be extremely disappointed – nobody expects Brentford to produce any fireworks this season.
On the other hand, the Magpies must return to their winning ways soon, or else they will drop from the places which ensure direct promotion into the Premier League. They have lost 2 games in their last 5, against Blackburn and Sheffield, both by the same scoreline: 0-1.
The first game between the two teams took place at St. James Park and finished with a 3-1 score, which Newcastle will want to repeat. If Reading win their game in hand an Newcastle lose against Brentford, they could even drop to 3rd place.

That being said, we favor the away team in this match. Their superior motivation, skill, and squad should be enough to ensure at least a goal or two, if not an outright win. Newcastle to score or X2 are the safe bets of the day, while we wouldn’t rule out a solo away win either. Good luck!
Total Goals – Over 2.5 @ 1.85 or 17/20
