Expert Betting Tips
We believe that the game will be an under one, as Brentford again tries to play tight, as we have seen in recent matches. Newcastle traditionally turn matches into shutouts That's why we find it hard to believe in high scoring. In addition, the Magpies have significant losses. In this regard, we recommend to bet on the total under 2.5.
Also we think that the series of Brentford and Newcastle will last, as the Magpies are highly motivated right now. Anyway, it will not be easy for the visiting team. That is why we suggest a zero handicap for the guests.
In conclusion we expect the first half to end in a draw, as with each round the price of error increases, as well as the responsibility.
