The positives for Newcastle is that they aren’t losing as much lately, however, they can’t find a winning touch to ease their relegation pressures and there is a tough game ahead of them on the weekend as they welcome Manchester United to St James’ Park. The Red Devils snapped back from their loss against Spurs with a comfortable win over Huddersfield on the weekend to strengthen their chance of a second place finish.
Manchester United 11/20, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 5/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 6th, 2018 at 7:45 p.m.)
Newcastle have only suffered the one defeat in their last six league matches now and that lone defeat happened away at Man City. So from that perspective it’s not been bad but they haven’t done enough winning to ease relegation concerns at all. They have picked up just the one victory in their last seven league matches now in the Premier League. Their home record has only seen them win three times too with a W3 D4 L6 return which isn’t much to get excited about but they are on a three-match sequence of drawn matches there at the moment. Newcastle have drawn three of their last four league games by a 1-1 scoreline and that is going to carry big odds of 7/1 at William Hill and the shortest priced option in the market is at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken on February 6th, 2018 at 7:45 p.m.). Newcastle have failed to win any of their last eight league home games and all season at St James’ Park have managed only eleven goals. Defensively they haven’t been too bad really with only the 15 conceded in 13. They are going to be somewhat vulnerable at the back of course and haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last four league outings and they have shipped in 77% of their home games. Four of their six home defeats this season have been by a one-goal margin only. No-one has picked up fewer home points than they have done this season in the Premier League.
Manchester United snapped back from their big disappointment against Spurs at Wembley as they rolled out a home win over Huddersfield last weekend. Out on the road, the Red Devils are W7 D3 L3 on their travels this season and the loss at Spurs snapped a very good six-match unbeaten streak of form that they were on away from Old Trafford (W5 D1). In total Manchester, United have returned 22 goals away from home this season in the top flight at a great average of 1.7 per game and that is something that should have Newcastle under pressure. Each of United’s last three away games have seen less than three goals and under 2.5 goals at William Hill is up at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 6th, 2018 at 7:45 p.m.). Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez (who got his first goal for his new club last weekend) are the joint-shortest priced options to consider in the first goalscorer market. Manchester United have picked up a clean sheet in their last two away victories and Manchester United to win to nil looks a pretty good option to roll with as they boast the best defence in the top flight heading into the weekend.
Newcastle were on the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline at Old Trafford back in November and they are winless in their last six games against the Red Devils in the Premier League now (D1 L5). So the head to head form isn’t there but he did hold out for a thrilling 3-3 draw in this corresponding fixture from the 2015/16 season. However, they are just W1 L3 in their last four Premier League home games against the Red Devils. Manchester United have scored at least three goals in four of their last six games against the Magpies.
Newcastle just don’t have the quality at the moment in them to land a victory in this one and they don’t look likely to collect a point out of the fixture. So settle for a Manchester United to win to nil wager, they are strong enough and professional enough to do the job.

Online betting site Coral have a huge enhanced odds offer to warm up Tuesday night’s Premier League action. The bookmaker is offering a massive 8/1 enhanced odds value on Manchester United to take the victory at St James Park.
Backing up the wager is a huge stat of the Red Devils having won nine of their last twelve league visits there (D2 L1). So the head to head form is certainly there and Manchester United won 1-0 in last season’s corresponding fixture.
Helping out the Red Devils in this one will be Newcastle’s less than ideal form as well, with the Magpies currently running on a three match losing streak in the top flight. The Red Devils struggled to see off Sheffield United in the FA Cup on the weekend, but will probably be feeling less pressure away from Old Trafford.
Just follow the promotional links on this page to register an account with Coral and get access to the 8/1 enhanced odds on Manchester United to beat Newcastle on Tuesday. The great thing about the deal is that the winnings are paid out in cash and you will pick up a free £5 bet if the wager loses.

The Magpies are slumping badly again with three defeats on the bounce in the Premier League and sitting in the bottom three. Every point that they can pick up at home looks as if it is going to be crucial for them because of their poor away form. Manchester United were booed again by their home support as a strong side needed a 93rd minute penalty to beat League One opponents Sheffield United in the FA Cup on the weekend. Can they scrape an away win to keep up the pressure on fourth placed Spurs? Manchester United are 4/5 for the win, with the draw at 11/4 and Newcastle at 4/1.

No-one has won more Premier League games against Newcastle than Manchester United (jointly with Arsenal)
The Red Devils have won nine and lost just one of their last twelve at St James’ Park in the league
Manchester United have lost their last two away games (winless in three)
The two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford back in August 2015
The Magpies sure could use a morale boosting win after going four on the trot without one in the Premier League (D1 L3). They have slumped to 1-0 defeats in each of their last three and that will probably send punters to look at a Manchester United 1-0 Correct Score wager for a price of 51 at online betting site Ladbrokes. That was the scoreline in last season’s corresponding fixture at St James Park. Newcastle have taken just the one win in their last five on home soil in the top flight and have won just two there all season in a W2 D4 L4 record. They have also failed to score in three of their last five, returning just the three goals in total across those last five home fixtures. With a lack of scoring on the board recently and pair that with the attacking deficiencies of Manchester United, then you have a game which is likely to go under 2.5 goals, which is a price of 7/10 with Ladbrokes.
The last two between them have gone under 2.5 goals and the Magpies have won just one of their last twelve league home games against the Red Devils. Georginio Wijnaldum is a 4/1 anytime goalscorer market for the game, with Ayoze Perez at 3/1. Newcastle have scored just two goals in their last five matches against the Red Devils. This all points to being a low-scoring game and only two of the last seven meetings between the two clubs have both teams score in a match. The Magpies have failed to score in any of their last three league matches on home soil against the Red Devils as well. At the back, the Magpies have conceded exactly one goal in each of their last five league matches. Despite a bit of promise back at the start of the December with back to back wins over Liverpool and Spurs, it’s gone downhill again for them.
Manchester United have just been dull and flat all season. They have lost their last two away games in the Premier League and have won just one of their last five on the road (W1 D2 L2). So they aren’t bankers either. The Red Devils have won just one of their last seven Premier League matches and struggled badly against Sheffield United in the FA Cup on the weekend, despite bossing so much possession. United have been level at half time in half of their away games this season and a Half Time Draw result will return you odds of even money, which is probably worth a punt. They haven’t kept a clean sheet on the road in any of their last four away from Old Trafford. Anthony Marital and Juan Mata are joint top-scorers for United away from home this season with two goals each. Wayne Rooney tops the anytime goalscorer market at 6/4.
It is really hard to see where the inspiration to find a winner is going to come from in this match. The Magpies are on the slide again and not scoring, and United have real problems inside the final third of the pitch as well. The Red Devils will probably have the upper hand in terms of possession and that may just tip the balance in their favour to give them an edge to sneak the game by a one goal margin.

Even without playing well still, Manchester United are still managing to pick up points which should see them land a top four finish. They take a trip to St James Park on Wednesday night where they should have a reasonable shot at picking up three points, with wins being few and far between lately for the Magpies. Manchester United are even money only for the win because of their flaky away form, with the draw at 5/2 and Newcastle at 3/1.
With a big fixture list on Wednesday night for your football betting, it should raise a good opportunity to build a nice acca. Place a fivefold or bigger acca at online bookmaker Bet Victor and if the bet is let down by just one leg then the bookmaker will refund your lost stake as a free bet for you, up to the maximum value of £25. New customers registering an account with Bet Victor can get up to a free £25 bet as a welcome bonus too.
The Magpies took a welcome win on the weekend as they beat Aston Villa. That was just their second league victory in their last eight played and so it eased a bit of pressure. They needed too because there is a tough run of games coming up for them. Newcastle have put up a record of W6 D4 L3 at home in the top flight this season and have put up a patchy record of W2 D2 L2 in their last six there. Interestingly there hasn’t been more than a one goal winning margin in the last twelve home games that Newcastle have played. Given the way the Red Devils have played on the road this season, this could be a tight game.
Newcastle have failed to score in three of their last four home league meetings with Man Utd, though they did win the other 3-0. They really haven’t gotten a lot change out of the Red Devils, as the Magpies have won just two of their last 24 Premier League matches against Man Utd (W2 D5 L17). Newcastle have scored the highest percentage of second half goals in the Premier League this season (69%), so it could be worth investing in a draw/Newcastle half time/full time bet maybe. Papiss Cisse has the best minutes per goal rate in the Premier League this season (min. 4 goals); one every 84 minutes. Cisse is a 2/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market.
Manchester United haven’t played well this season at all. They still aren’t with a really wishy-washy midfield. But somehow they keep picking up the points, but most of them have come at Old Trafford. While Manchester United have lost just two of their last seventeen league matches, they have won just one of their last six on the road (W1 D4 L1). That defeat came in their last away game at Swansea, where they were really poor and unimaginative going forward. United’s away record in the top flight this season reads W3 D7 L3.
The loss at the Liberty Stadium snapped a seven match unbeaten streak on the road for the Red Devils (W3 D4). Wayne Rooney has netted 12 Premier League goals against the Magpies; a joint-high against any opponent along with Aston Villa. After his brace on the weekend, he is worth a flutter at a quote of 7/4 at online bookmaker Bet Victor to score anytime and seems to be the only forward doing anything for them this season. He became the first player in Premier League history to score 10+ goals in 11 consecutive seasons. Given their fumbling on the road this season, hard to see them contributing to a high scoring game at St James Park.
Big likelihood that this is going to be a low scoring affair. Neither side are really playing with any kind of conviction whatsoever and neither are backable with a whole lot of confidence. Bit of a crap shoot, but whoever you roll with, don’t expect anything more than a one goal winning margin.

Newcastle v Manchester United Betting Preview
The Magpies are just so random that you don’t often know what to do with them. Much can be said of Manchester United this season too. This game is sandwiched in between their big clashes with Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Will that be enough of a distraction to give Newcastle a chance in this one?

Newcastle v Manchester United Betting Tips:
It has been a real mixed bag of results from Newcastle lately, winning three and losing three of their last six played. Their last two games though have gone terribly wrong, losing 3-0 at home against Everton and then getting crushed 4-0 at Southampton. They have badly been missing the influence and goals of want-away striker Loic Remy recently, and frankly without him, they are lacking a lot of forward punch. In they anytime goalscorer market, it really leaves Papiss Cisse as their best option at 7/2 with William Hill, but not a wager that instils a lot of confidence at all. Newcastle have won two of their last four against the Red Devils in the Premier League and that was after an 18 match winless streak against United.
The Magpies took a 1-0 win at Old Trafford earlier in the season and that snapped a run of four matches between the two in all competitions where the games had gone over 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals again is priced at Even money for this one, with Over at 4/5. 50% of Newcastle home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Newcastle’s home form reads W7 D3 L6 this season and they have lost five of their last seven there, and in each of those defeats they failed to register a single goal. Not prolific by a long shot and are only averaging barely just above a goal per game at home this season. The last two corresponding fixtures have ended by a 3-0 scoreline, one win for Newcastle, one for United.
It has been a long and difficult slog for United this season but their hopes and spirits could be high. They took a draw against European champions Bayern Munich in the week after setting up a brick wall for ninety minutes in front of David De Gea and not bothering about attack. The Red Devils are currently on a three match winning streak away from home in the top flight, unbeaten in their last four. They have kept clean sheets in each of those four too, so again it could suggest that this is going to be a low scoring affair. Wayne Rooney has netted six goals in his last six Premier League appearances now and is an even money shot in the anytime goalscorer market.
United have lost some big games at home in the league recently, but their away form is top notch. Would firmly back them to come out of this with a win and there’s value enough in the outright market, but may even be tempted to back United to win to nil at 12/5.
Form (all competitions)
Newcastle WWLLL, Manchester United LWWLWD
Wayne Rooney has six goals in his last six league appearances
The two sides have split wins in the last four league meetings, two wins each
newcastle have lost five and failed to score in five of their last seven league home matches
United are unbeaten in four away games in the league, with clean sheets in each of those
