Third place takes on second place this English Premier League weekend as Newcastle United and Arsenal meet at St. James’ Park in what is set to be one of the biggest games of the season.

A loss for Arsenal will all but end its Premier League title hopes, while a victory for Newcastle will practically secure a spot in the Champions League for next season.

Here are our Newcastle vs Arsenal picks.

Newcastle to Win

Newcastle has bounced back from its damaging 3-0 loss to Aston Villa in stunning style. It has gone on to defeat Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Southampton and scored 13 goals in these past three wins.

It seems as if when it mattered most, the Magpies have managed to collect the wins they needed to ensure a spot in the Champions League for next season. In fact, with just 18 points left to play for, Newcastle is already six points above fifth place in the Premier League and it could secure a spot back amongst Europe’s elite for next season with a victory in its next two games.

This added motivation, Arsenal’s drop in form, and the stunning array of goals Newcastle has scored recently means we’re picking it to win here.

PICK: Newcastle to win and over 2.5 goals is +225 with DraftKings.

Callum Wilson to Score

During this period of incredible goalscoring form from Newcastle, Callum Wilson has managed to score five of the past 13 goals. 

He also scored twice in a 5-1 win over Newcastle United this time last month, meaning he has now scored seven times in the past six games to take his tally to 15 goals in 26 Premier League games.

Arsenal has also conceded 12 goals in its past five games and failed to produce a shutout in the past eight matches, and Wilson will be coming into this game brimming with confidence and eyeing up another goal against a weakened defense.

PICK: Callum Wilson to score anytime is -100 with BetMGM.

Martin Odegaard to Score or Assist

Martin Odegaard has been a shining light in a dark period for Arsenal after his two excellent goals against Chelsea. The Arsenal captain has now scored 14 Premier League goals and assisted eight other goals and he is turning out to be the Gunners’ key player in their final few games of the season.

In fact, he has only failed to either score or assist against Manchester City in the past five games for Arsenal, and although it will be an incredibly tough game for it, we expect the captain to have a say once more.

PICK: Martin Odegaard to score or assist is +135 with FanDuel.
