The Magpies will take on fellow struggling side Swansea at St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.
Former Newcastle and Liverpool striker Owen, who now works as a pundit for BT Sport, has backed Rafael Benitez’s side to pick up all three points from the encounter.
Owen wrote on Betvictor.com: “Newcastle have picked up seven points from their last four games and I expect them to maintain their recent improvement with a win against Swansea at St James’s Park.
“Swans’ did come from behind to win their last away league game at Watford but they remain at the-foot-of-the table and did lose their last seven on the road before their trip to Vicarage Road.”
A footnote added: “Tip: Newcastle to win at 9/10.”
Newcastle are in good form at the moment and will be confident of winning against fellow strugglers Swansea at home.
The Magpies will head into the match against the Swans at St. James’ Park on the back of a 3-1 victory over Luton Town at home in the third round of the FA Cup.
Prior to that encounter, Benitez’s side got the better of Stoke City 1-0 away from home at the bet365 Stadium in the Premier League.
The Swans are in real trouble of going down to the Championship at the end of the season and are at the foot of the Premier League table at the moment.
