After a poor end to 2023, Newcastle United have now won three of their last four in all competitions. Eddie Howe’s side welcome a Luton Town side that hammered Brighton & Hove Albion 4-0 at Kenilworth Road.

The Premier League debutants themselves have won three in a row now and their midweek thrashing of Brighton ended a three-game streak where both teams had scored.

Luton were 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture just before Christmas, but with the weather not so bad now and both teams firing in the goals I expect an open, high scoring game.

Since then, Newcastle’s only home games have finished 1-3 and 2-3 versus Nottingham Forest and Manchester City respectively.

With Nick Pope on the sidelines and Martin Dubravka looking shaky between the sticks, I would certainly expect the visitors to find the net in this game. Newcastle will also be without Joelinton and Sandro Tonali in midfield.

Luton have been great going forward in recent games but hadn’t been secure at the back prior to the visit of the Seagulls midweek. Rob Edwards will be without Marvelous Nakamba and Tom Lockyet in midfield themselves whilst centre-back Teden Mengi is a doubt.

Expect goals in this one. Whilst I am favouring a home win in this one the 4/9 odds simply aren’t good value at all.

Best bet: Over 3.5 goals is 6/4 with BetFred
