Burnley will head out on the road to face off against Newcastle United at 10:00 a.m. ET on Saturday at St. James' Park. The odds don't look promising for Burnley but the bigger the opponent is, the harder they fall.

Burnley is still winless after their matchup against Manchester United on Saturday, but it was at least the closest they've come to winning. Burnley fell just short of Manchester United by a score of 1-0. Unfortunately, the result was nothing new for Burnley as the team has yet to pick up a win this season.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United and Sheffield United combined for 16 shots on goal on Sunday, which explains the impressive eight total goals scored. Newcastle United didn't even let Sheffield United onto the board and left with a 8-0 victory. With that win, Newcastle United brought their scoring average up to 2.7 goals per game.

Burnley has been struggling recently and they've lost three of their last four matches, which is somehow better than their 0-1-4 record this season. Admittedly, the team was facing some tough opposition over that stretch, including 3-1-0 Tottenham Hotspur and 2-1-2 Nottingham Forest (Burnley's opponents had an average overall winning percentage of 63.5% over those games). Newcastle United's victory on Sunday bumped their record up to 3-0-3.

Burnley couldn't quite finish off Newcastle United when the teams last played back in May of 2022 and fell 2-1. Can Burnley avenge their defeat or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll find out soon enough.


Newcastle United is a huge favorite against Burnley, according to the latest English Premier League odds, being -324 to win.

The over/under is set at 3.5 goals.
