Man Utd v Newcastle – Premier League Betting Guide: 6th Oct 2018

Manchester United v Newcastle United 17:30

Plenty of issues at Old Trafford at the moment with the spotlight firmly on their boss Jose Mourhino after being dumped out of the League Cup and then losing to West Ham in the Premier League last week.

With that there is some speculation about the Portuguese manager’s future with the Red Devils, while their hopes of winning a 14th Premier League title is all but over, and we are only just starting October – they are around 101.00 in the outright betting.

Next up for Man Utd is to welcome Newcastle to Old Trafford in a match and really anything but three points here will be unacceptable for United fans.

The match betting suggests they will win the game as Man Utd are on offer at 1.44, with the Draw 4.33 and Newcastle 7.00.

Last season’s repeat fixture will also give United a lot of hope as they thumped Newcastle 4-1, while the Red Devils have lost just one of their last 23 home Premier League games against the Magpies.

In fact, if we also go outside the Premier League era, then United are 33 home league games unbeaten over Newcastle.

7 of the last 11 head-to-heads went OVER 2.5 GOALS and a repeat of this can be backed at 1.85, while both teams DIDN’T score in 5 of the last 8 – this is on offer at 1.80.

Three of the last 8 head-to-heads ended in DRAWS too so Newcastle fans will have something to cling on and really with all the pressure on the home side, plus having to have played in the Champions League in midweek then we’ll take Newcastle to get a point over a struggling United at 4.33.

BEST BET: DRAW
