We have an interesting match from the English Premier League on Sunday as Newcastle United welcome Manchester United to St James Park. This tie is set for a 4.30pm kick-off and will be shown live on Sky Sports. Great news for armchair fans, but there’s also plenty to hold the attention of sports bettors looking to profit from the occasion. Here are our top Newcastle v Man Utd betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Newcastle enjoys home advantage, but they have been struggling in the early part of this campaign and the early warning signs tells us The Magpies will spend much of this campaign kicking their heels at the wrong end of the table, probably battling against the threat of relegation. Man Utd followers haven’t had things too much better so far and Solskjaer already finds himself under pressure.
This has all the ingredients of a cracker and when looking at recent renewals of this fixture we can expect a competitive and entertaining 90 minutes. Neutrals hope Sunday’s match falls into line but both managers would be happy to nick a 1-0 bore and grab hold of a much-needed three points to ease their suffering in the early exchanges of autumn.
Can Man U Win This?
The current betting has an away win as favourite and Unibet are offering up a decent 3/4 on the points heading back to Old Trafford. That’s likely to appear in a fair share of weekend accumulators, but there will be bits and pieces of attention in the 19/5 – top price at Unibet – for a home win. The draw is 13/5. We’re taking both teams to score in a Man Utd win at 14/5 (888sport).
