Football Betting Tips for Newcastle vs Aston Villa; Eddie Howe's Newcastle United get their 2023/24 Premier League campaign underway against Aston Villa on Saturday evening at St James' Park.

Newcastle United had an outstanding 2022/23 season, and will be looking for more glory this year. But with Champions League football returning to St James' Park, will the Toon Army's squad be up to the task of competing on two fronts?

Their opponents in their opening match are Aston Villa. Led by the experienced Unai Emery, Villa had an exceptional second half of the 2022/23 season, and were unrecognisable from the team led by Steven Gerrard in the first part of the campaign. 

It will be interesting to see if Villa can carry this form into the new season. If they can, Villa fans could be in for a successful and exciting next few months.

Newcastle United vs Aston Villa Betting Tips

This is a difficult fixture to predict. Both sides finished last season strongly, but we’re not yet sure if they can carry that form over to this season. The safe bet and our prediction is for Newcastle to win. They are at home, and odds of 3/4 are fair enough.

But in our best football tips for today, we are looking elsewhere for better value. Last season, Villa dismantled Newcastle 3-0 at Villa Park during the run in. Newcastle will remember that day, and revenge will be on the cards.

As a result, we can see an onslaught on the Villa goal. So the first of our football betting tips is Alexander Isak to have two or more shots on target. We’re putting this in a Bet Builder alongside both teams to score, as we also believe Villa will be dangerous on the break. The two bets combined pay just under 2/1.
