This is a clash between two sides looking to snap themselves out of slumps. Huddersfield are currently on a three-match losing streak in the league and start the weekend in the drop zone, with the poorest offensive record in the top flight. Newcastle have managed one point from the last nine available and would see the Terriers pull level with them if they lose. Read our Huddersfield v Newcastle betting tips for more.

The Terriers went to Arsenal last weekend and suffered a 1-0 loss after putting in a decent showing against an in-form team. That still was their third defeat on the bounce in the top flight and they are back in trouble once again. It is a slump after looking as if they had just turned the corner having taken seven points of nine. Their home form in the top flight reads W1 D2 L5 so far. There was a loss for them in their last home game, a 2-1 reverse against Brighton. The Terriers have struggled for goals, having netted just three at home so far, conceding 10.
They have failed to score in 62% of home games. There has been a home clean sheet for them in 25% of fixtures though so that is some kind of positive. Just 25% of games at the John Smith’s have ended over 2.5 goals this season. Another positive for Huddersfield it that they have at least scored in each of their last three at home in the league. But less positive is the fact that the Terriers have been trailing at half-time in four of their eight home fixtures
There were 1-0 home wins for each last season in the EPL
The season before in the Championship, they traded away wins
The home team has scored exactly one goal in each of the last four meetings
The Magpies lost 2-1 at home against Wolves in their last fixture and they have just hit a sticky patch with two losses in their last three games (D1). Away from St James’ Park this season it hasn’t been good from Newcastle as they have put up numbers of W1 D4 L2 so far. Newcastle though are unbeaten in their last three away games (W1 D2). In their run of away games, this term Newcastle have come up with just the six goals, conceding seven. 43% of their away games have ended over 2.5 goals.
The Magpies have earned a clean sheet in 43% of their away games so that has been a pretty decent defensive effort from them. They haven’t been losing at half time in any of their away games this season either. Five of their seven away games have been level at the end of the first half so that’s a strong trend to have a look at. The Magpies haven’t hit a second-half goal on their travels yet his season and there has been no clean sheet in any of their last five league outing for them. In just one of their away games, this season have Newcastle scored the opening goal of a game. Only Southampton and Huddersfield have scored fewer away goals than Newcastle have.
Our prediction is going to be the home win and a much-needed one for the Terriers. They have scored in their last three home games while Newcastle have really struggled in away games against the bottom sides this season.

Sunday’s only Premier League game comes from St James’ Park as Newcastle play host to Wolves. The Magpies will be looking to get back to winning way on home soil after slipping up at her against West Ham last weekend. Wolves have been struggling for results and need to start showing more resilience on their travels. Read our Newcastle v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 4th, 2018 at 7:54 p.m.)
Newcastle battled their way to a good point in a 1-1 draw at Everton in midweek, despite a severe lack of possession in the fixture. It’s back to home soil on the weekend where they are W2 D0 L6 this season. The two wins in that home form have both been produced in their last three home games though as a positive. Not so good is that in their last fixture at St James’ Park the Magpies were beaten 3-0 by West Ham. There has been just the six home goals produced by Newcastle this season, while they have conceded 13. There has been just the one home clean sheet from them.
62% of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals. No league game hosted at St James’ Park this season in the league has produced at least four goals. Four of Newcastle’s six home defeats have been by a one-goal margin and their two wins have both been by a one-goal margin only. Newcastle have been losing at half time in four of their eight home games (W1 D3). In none of their last four league games (home and away combined) have the Magpies managed to earn a clean sheet. Newcastle have opened the scoring in just two home games this season.
Only four teams have collected fewer home points than Newcastle this season. They are the third lowest scorers in the top flight currently.
Wolves and Newcastle were last together in the 2016/17 Championship
Wolves won 2-0 on their last trip to St James’ Park
Four of the six previous EPL meetings have ended in a draw
Newcastle are W2 D4 in the previous six Premier League games against Wolves
Six of the last nine meetings in all competitions have gone under 2.5 goals
Wolves enjoyed a tremendous success in midweek with a 2-1 home win over Chelsea after having been trailing at the half time break. It was a rousing performance which saw them snap a six-match winless streak of league form (D1 L5). Out on their travels, this season in the league Wolves have produced a W2 D2 L3 record. They have earned just the one point from their last three away games though. In total Wolves have produced only the five away goals and they have conceded just seven goals on their travels which is good.
Just one of their away games this season in the top flight have made it over 2.5 goals so there’s a strong nod towards a low scoring game appearing here. Wolves have taken a clean sheet in 29% of away games but home and away combined they have failed to bank a clean sheet in any of their last seven EPL games. Wolves have actually scored first in four of their seven road games. Going into the game Wolves hold a six-point advantage over Newcastle in the top flight. Both teams have failed to score in each of the last three meetings between the two clubs.
The home win is our prediction for Newcastle v Wolves on Sunday. There probably isn’t going to be too much between them at the end of the day, so sticking with home advantage seems to be the best way forward. Home win.

Both Everton and Newcastle suffered defeats over the weekend so will be keen to bounce back. The Toffees will be banking on their good home form to get them over the line following their disappointment in the Merseyside derby on the weekend. This is the highest quality opponent the Magpies have faced in a while away from home. Read our Everton v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:18 p.m.)
The Toffees were heartbroken deep into stoppage time of their Merseyside derby effort at Liverpool on the weekend. A mistake from keeper Jordan Pickford helped Liverpool bag the only goal of the game in the 96th minute. It leaves Everton at W5 D1 L2 in their last eight league games which is still a good return.
The Toffees are running very well at home at the moment. Not only do they have an overall record of W5 D1 L1 this season on home soil in the EPL but they have won their last four in a row there. That could be slightly skewed though as they haven’t played anyone currently in the top half of the table at home.
Everton have a clean sheet in two of their last three games. Everton to win to nil is at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm) and they have bagged a clean sheet in 43% of their home fixtures this term. Still, even with those clean sheets earned at Goodison Park, 29% of their home games have gone over 3.5 goals.
The Toffees have netted 13 goals in their seven home games, and 62% of those have been in the second half of games. The Toffees have been level at the halftime break in five of their home games this term and have conceded 67% of their home goals in the first half of games. Everton have scored first in five of their seven home games this season.
Everton took a 1-0 home win over Newcastle last season
The Toffees are on a five-match winning streak against Newcastle
Newcastle have failed to score in their last five against Everton
Everton have won their last four home games against the Magpies
Newcastle are winless in six at Goodison
Newcastle were moving along well on a good four-match undefeated streak of form. Then West Ham showed up at St James’ Park on the weekend and smashed the Magpies 3-0. Away from home Newcastle are just a W1 D3 L2 for the season. Their only away win happened out at Burnley, who are currently sat in the bottom two in the table. Under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm).
There have been just the five away goals scored by the Magpies this season. All of their five away goals have cropped up in the first half of games. Newcastle haven’t been defensively bad though, shipping just six goals in six away games. Four of those six have come against them after the half time break. That has helped them sit level at half time in four of their six away games and three of those were 0-0 draws.
So that should appeal as a half-time correct score option. Only Crystal Palace and Huddersfield have managed were league goals than Newcastle this season. Everton to win by a one-goal margin is at 5/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm),. The trend there is that Newcastle’s two away defeats (Man City and Man Utd) have both only been by a one-goal margin
It should be Everton all the way in this one. Their home form speaks for itself really and the Magpies got their recent away points at sides beneath them in the table. Everton can deliver maximum points. Home win to nil.
4th December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Hammers and Newcastle are sat level on twelve points now. That has come about because of a lack of wins from West Ham and the sudden upturn in form by the Magpies. Newcastle are on a surge of three straight wins at the moment which is as many as West Ham have managed all season. Read our Newcastle v West Ham betting tips for more.
West Ham 2/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 27th, 2018 at 4:55 p.m.)
Newcastle made it three straight wins as they held out to earn a 2-1 win at Turf Moor against Burnley on Monday night. That leaves their overall league form this season at W3 D3 L7. Their home form is W2 L5 in their seven games at St James’ Park and they have won their last two back to back there. Both of those wins were one-goal margin successes against Bournemouth and Watford. Newcastle to win by a one-goal margin is at 3/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 6:43 pm). From their seven home games, Newcastle have produced just six goals
Of the goals they have scored at St James Park this term, half of them have come in their last two. 57% of their home games have made it above the 2.5 goal line and the Magpies have produced only the one clean sheet at home this term. Newcastle have been winning at halftime just once at home this season. Three times at home this season the Magpies have been level at 0-0 at the halftime break. Both teams to score is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 6:43 pm). Only Huddersfield, Southampton, Burnley and Crystal Palace have fewer home points than Newcastle this season in the Premier League.
The Magpies won this corresponding fixture 3-0 last season
Newcastle are on a three-match winning streak against the Hammers
Newcastle are W4 L1 in their last five against West Ham in the top flight
Each of the last three meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Newcastle are unbeaten in four home games against West Ham, winning the last three
West Ham had a day to forget last weekend as they were brushed aside in a 4-0 home loss against Manchester City. That actually snapped a nice little run of W1 D2 unbeaten league form that they had been on. Away from home, it hasn’t been great from the Irons this season as they are just W1 D2 L3 on their travels in the Premier League. They have avoided defeat in their last two on the road though, back to back 1-1 draws at Leicester and Huddersfield. West Ham have yet to collect an away clean sheet this season and going forward have averaged exactly a goal per game.
Under 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 6:43 pm). There is a trend as each of their last three Premier League away games have finished under the goal line. Of the six goals that West Ham have produced away from home, four of them have been before the halftime break in games. Overall home and away, they have no clean sheet in their last seven so they have been struggling at the back. Felipe Anderson has scored in two of West Ham’s last three games (three goals). The Irons are winless in their last three road games (D2 L1).
Newcastle have been winning by fine margins and the Hammers may have a chance here at grabbing a draw here. The Irons have taken back to back away draws and that could see them have enough to avoid defeat at St James’ Park. Draw.

This is going to be an important clash at Tuff Moor on Monday night. Burnley and Newcastle are level on nine points each down in the bottom half of the table. The Magpies have shown some great fight and spirit with back to back wins. Can they keep their revival going? Read our Burnley v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 24th, 2018 at 9:15 p.m.)
Burnley earned a 0-0 draw at Leicester in their last game which leaves The Clarets without a win in any of their last five league games now (D2 L3). So they are struggling for some form and this is a big game for them. At Turf Moor so far this season they are only W1 D1 L3, a long way short of the brilliant home form which they produced last term. Their lone home win game against Bournemouth on September 22nd. In total across their five home games this season, the Clarets have tallied up the six goals. They have conceded an average of two goals per game at home this season in the league.
Surprisingly, because of some really poor defensive displays, 60% of their fixtures at Turf Moor have actually gone above 3.5 goals. They have conceded a hefty total of 13 goals in their last four league games and that’s with their 0-0 draw at Leicester included. The Clarets have scored in just one of their last four league games. Both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:27 pm). They were 13 points better off at this stage of last season than they are at the moment. Only two sides, Cardiff and Fulham have shipped more goals than Burnley have done this season.
Burnley earned a 1-0 win in last season’s corresponding fixture
In the four previous EPL Meetings, Burnley are W1 D3 against Newcastle
Both teams have scored in three of the four previous EPL meetings
Out of nowhere, the Magpies seem to have found their wings as they earned back to back Premier League draws. The most recent was a 2-1 success over Bournemouth. That leaves them unbeaten in three games actually with a seven-point haul from those games. It has been a big improvement from them as they are clawing themselves away from the drop zone. Newcastle have also earned a clean sheet in two of their last three games. Under 2.5 goals is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:27 pm)
Despite their upturn in form, they are still looking for their first away win of the season, having gone D3 L2 from their five away from St James’ Park. Across those five away games, Newcastle has netted just the three goals. They have failed to score in 60% of their away games while at the same time having collected a clean sheet in 60% of their away games. All of their away goals have been scored in the second half of away games this season, having been level at the break in four of their five on the road. The halftime draw is at even money* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:27 pm). Only Huddersfield and Crystal Palace have scored fewer league goals than Newcastle have managed this term
The draw looks to have the most appeal in this fixture and that is simply because this looks like a game that neither will want to lose. Newcastle don’t have form on the road and Burnley haven’t been great at Turf Moor. Draw.
25th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Can the Magpies get together some momentum after having won for the first time this season? They got a victory over Watford last weekend at home and stay on Tyneside for the visit of Bournemouth this weekend. The Cherries gave a great account of themselves in a defeat against Manchester United and will be keen to mount a response. Read our Newcastle v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 5th, 2018 at 8:54 p.m.)
The Magpies broke their duck for the season with a 1-0 home success over Watford last weekend. The hero of the day was Ayoze Perez who netted the only goal of the game in the 65th minute. That was Newcastle’s first goal since a 10th-minute strike against Manchester United back on October 6th. Still it just the one goal in their last three games from the Magpies. Under 2.5 goals is the way to go therefore at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm) for this one.
Each of Newcastle’s last three games and five of their last six in the league have gone that way. Newcastle’s home form is W1 L5 so they have a long way to go before they start turning things around. They have produced only the four goals on home soil this season. The Magpies have taken back to back clean sheets in the league as they had played out a 0-0 draw at Southampton before the win over Watford last weekend. Both teams NOT to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm). Three of the four home goals that Newcastle have scored this season have been in the first half of matches.
Bournemouth took four points against Newcastle last season
The Cherries have won their two previous Premier League trips to Newcastle
This will be just the fifth EPL meeting between them
Bournemouth are W3 L1 from the four previous EPL clashes
The Cherries had their four-match unbeaten streak of run snapped as they lost 2-1 at home against Manchester United last weekend, but they gave a good account of themselves. They have been a really positive side this season and they will carry a threat out at St James’ Park. The Cherries have won their last two road games, beating Watford 4-0 and then Fulham 3-0 so they have the goals in them without question. Callum Wilson has been carrying goalscoring form this season and he is at 13/8 in the anytime goalscorer market for the game* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm).
The overall away form of Bournemouth this season is W3 D0 L2 and they have tallied the nine goals. On both occasions this season in which they failed to score an away goal, they lost (at Chelsea and Burnley). The Cherries have only lost one game of six against teams currently in the bottom half of the table (W4 D1). That was a big away defeat at Burnley. Bournemouth have not conceded a goal in the first half hour of any away game this season. Only the sides currently in the top four in the league have scored more league goals than the Cherries have managed this season. Bournemouth to win to nil is at 7/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm).
Bournemouth have produced some great football this season and they gave as good as they got against Manchester United last weekend. They could well have enough to upset what is still a very vulnerable-looking Newcastle side.
8th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Newcastle at least gained a point last weekend as they drew against Southampton, but it still leaves them in a tough position. They are on the hunt for their first win of the season and they aren’t posing much of a threat up front. Watford will arrive at St James’ Park in a confident mood having recorded back to back league wins for themselves. Read our Newcastle v Watford betting tips for more.
Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 31st, 2018 at 6:23 p.m.)
Newcastle have not collected a win this season still after they were held to 0-0 draw by Southampton last weekend. That moved them on to just three points for the season from a D3 L7 record. It has been such poor stuff and the Magpies have failed to score in four of their last five league games now. For Newcastle v Watford betting tips both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm). Newcastle are still looking for their first point on home soil for this season.
They have failed to score in their last two home games as well in the league. In total, they have come up with just three league goals at St James’ Park this season, with Joselu getting two of those three. Three of the six league goals that they have come up with overall this season in the top flight have been netted in the first 15 minutes of games.
Defensively they have conceded an average of 1.8 goals per home fixture this season. The Magpies have not opened the scoring in any of their home games this season and only Huddersfield have produced fewer league goals than they have done. With zero points, Newcastle have the worst home record going in the top flight.
Newcastle have lost their last two home games against Watford
Newcastle lost both league games last season against the Hornets
The Hornets are on a five-match winning streak against Newcastle in all competitions
Three of Watford’s last five wins over the Magpies have been by a 2-1 scoreline
Five of the last six meetings have ended over 2.5 goals
Watford seem to be heading in the right direction again. They beat Huddersfield at Vicarage Road 3-0 last weekend to move on top back to back wins. That was after a run of just one point from four games. They have earned back to back clean sheets as well heading into this weekend of action so Watford to win to nil is at 10/3 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm). Watford have produced a W2 D1 L1 record on their top-flight travels thus far, the loss happening at Arsenal in their last away game.
Away from Vicarage Road Watford have averaged 1.5 goals per game, but they are on the hunt still for their first clean sheet away from home. Watford have scored in three of their last four visits to St James’ Park so have a decent recent track record on Tyneside. Only 25% of their away games have ended over 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm).
Roberto Pereyra is the one with the scoring form for Watford with a goal in back to back games. 67% of Watford’s away goals have been in the first half of games while they have conceded 75% of their away goals in the second half of games. A Watford half time win is not a bad betting tip at all.
Newcastle home form is shocking. There’s no other word for it and they look poor. Watford should have a spring in their step having gotten themselves out of their slump and they can go and sneak a win on Tyneside.

This could be a tense clash down on the south coast as both Southampton and Newcastle could use a morale-boosting win. Newcastle fell to the bottom of the Premier League last weekend with a poor home loss against Brighton. Southampton collected a point in their south coast derby against Bournemouth to keep themselves just away from the drop zone. Read our Southampton v Newcastle betting tips for more.
Southampton even money
Newcastle 11/4* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 25th, 2018 at 4:36 p.m.)
Southampton were on a three-match losing streak in the Premier League ahead of their game against south coast rivals Bournemouth last weekend. The Saints collected a point in a 0-0 draw to at least stop the losing rot. Southampton are without a win in their last five games and have collected on a W1 D3 L5 record this season in the top flight. They are still looking for their first home win of the season as well, with just two points earned so far on home soil.
Southampton have scored in just half of their home games and overall home and away are without a league goal in their last four fixtures. Under 1.5 goals is at 7/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 6:30 pm) and that looks a strong proposition for Southampton v Newcastle betting tips. Southampton have produced just the three goals overall at home this season and two of those were in one game, a 2-2 draw with Brighton.
Given the lack of scoring from the two sides here, both teams not to score is at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 6:30 pm). The Saints are on a terrible run of home form in the top flight really because they have only taken one victory in their last fifteen home fixtures. Southampton have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three at St Marys. Little surprise really that boss Mark Hughes is under increasing pressure now.
Newcastle took a W1 D1 record in last season’s Premier League meetings
Newcastle have scored at least two goals in three of their last four against the Saints
Southampton are unbeaten in five at home against the Magpies (W4D1)
The last seven games between them have each gone over 2.5 goals
Southampton are W3 D2 L1 in their last six against Newcastle
Southampton have scored thirteen goals in their last four at home against Newcastle
The Magpies have earned one league point from their last seven games now and that was after a confidence-crushing 1-0 home loss against Brighton last weekend. That was just a chance for them to turn the corner and they missed it. They don’t have a home point so far this season and out on the road they are D2 L2. Newcastle have scored in just one of their last four league games and both of the points which they have earned this season were in 0-0 draws at Cardiff and Crystal Palace.
A 0-0 correct score is at 7/1 odds, but shorter at the head of the market is a Southampton 1-0 option at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 6:30 pm). Newcastle have produced just three away goals all season, while they have conceded five. All three of Newcastle’s away goals this season have been in the first half hour of games. The half time draw option is at even money * (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 6:30 pm).
That’s well worth a look the Magpies haven’t been behind at half-time in an away game so far. All but one of the away goals that Newcastle have conceded this season have been after the half time break. Overall they have failed to win any of their last seven league away games (D2 L5) and they have collected a win in just one of their last twelve away from St James’ Park (D4 L7). They are now ten points worse off than they were after nine games of last seasons’ top-flight campaign.
Newcastle’s home loss against Brighton last weekend felt like a bit of a nail in their Premier League coffin even this early in the season. Southampton have to grasp this chance at a rare and precious three points for themselves. Home win.

This is a huge game for Newcastle as they go on the hunt for their first win of the season. This could be an opportunity for them as they take on Brighton who have struggled to put away form together. Can the Magpies make their move as they enter an important phase of easier games than what they have been through so far? Read our Newcastle v Brighton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)
It has been an immensely difficult season for Newcastle, but their fixture list hasn’t helped their cause. They have already faced five of the league’s big six in their opening eight matches. That has played a part in them still being on the hunt for their first win of the season. They have collected just the two points so far in two draws on the road. So there has not been any joy for them so far at St James’ Park. The Magpies have scored in three of their four home games, exactly one goal in each of those (which were all 2-1 losses).
Five of the six losses that Newcastle have suffered this season have been by a one-goal margin. Just before the international break, they blew a 2-0 lead at Old Trafford against Manchester United to lose 3-2. Newcastle have conceded exactly two goals in each home game this term. But this now kicks off a run of much easier fixtures for them. This is where they need to make it count and a Newcastle 1-0 correct score is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:01 pm). Each of their three games this season not against the big six sides have all ended under 2.5 goals so that is the way to go for Newcastle v Brighton betting tips.
Brighton are six points better off than Newcastle are so this would be a fantastic opportunity to keep the Magpies further off their backs. The Seagulls have won twice this season in the top flight in a W2 D2 L4 record. Tehri second win of the season came just before the international break when they earned a good 1-0 home success over West Ham. Both of their league wins this term happened at home by a one-goal margin.
While their home form is pretty solid, they have not had a lot of joy out on their travels. They are just D1 L3 away from home this term and they have failed to score in three of their four road games. Newcastle to win to nil is at 12/5 odds and may be worth a flutter* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:01 pm). In two games against sides currently sat in the bottom five this season, the Seagulls drew both of them (Southampton and Fulham).
There were low scoring games between these last season with a 0-0 at St James’ Park following a 1-0 home win for Brighton. Those are the only two previous Premier League meetings. Newcastle are W2 D1 L1 in their last four league matches against Brighton now and have not conceded in their last two at home against the Seagulls.
The Magpies so desperately need a win to start turning the corner with their form. There has to be a good chance here on home soil against the Seagulls who have produced little on the road. Newcastle to win.

The Red Devils suffered their third loss of the league season last weekend as they were humbled down in London against West Ham. They badly need a pick-me-up on the domestic front. They will be expected to get it at home against Newcastle side who are still on the hunt for their first league win of the season. Read our Manchester United v Newcastle betting tips for more.
Manchester United 4/9
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 2nd, 2018 at 8:23 p.m.)
With no win in four matches across all competitions (D3 L1) the Red Devils need a lift. Last weekend they suffered a bruising 3-1 loss out at West Ham in the Premier League and followed that up with a 0-0 draw at home against Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday. They have produced a W3 D1 L3 record this season in the top flight and of that, they are W1 D1 L1 at home. They have collected just the one point in their last two home games, but they are favourites here and Manchester United to win to nil is at 5/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm).
Romelu Lukaku’s last goal in the Premier League against Burnley right at the start of September and is without one in three. Lukaku is the 3/1 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm) for the weekend action. At the moment they are nine points worse off than they were at this stage this season. The stats aren’t looking great with just three home goals and five conceded. There has been no clean sheet at Old Trafford for them this season. Still, against the misfiring Magpies, we can’t help but look at the value of a Manchester United 1-0 correct score at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm).
Just the two points Newcastle have picked up thus far in their top-flight campaign and there doesn’t look to be any sign of recovery. Last weekend they lost on home soil against Leicester and have now failed to score in their last two. The Magpies have failed to score in three for their seven games this season and have tallied up the four goals. Four of the five league defeats which they have suffered this season have been by a 2-1 scoreline. Manchester United to win by a 1 goal margin is at 9/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm).
Away from St James’ Park Newcastle are D2 L1 this season with just the one goal scored in that sequence. The two draws were both 0-0 and you feel that that would be some kind of positive return for them out of this one. Only three teams have conceded more shots against them on average this season than the Magpies have done. At the other end of the pitch, no side has had fewer shots per game this season in the Premier League than Newcastle have done. Both teams NOT to score comes in at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm).
Manchester United and Newcastle traded home wins last season in the Premier League and that leaves things even with one win each and two draws over the last four league meetings. Manchester United are unbeaten at home in the league against the Magpies in three now (W2 D1).
Even though things haven’t gone well for the Red Devils this season, at home against a poor Newcastle side, United should deliver. It’s time to keep things simple and Manchester United to win to nil appeals.
