Manchester United v Newcastle Odds, Tips, and Match Preview
Game time & date: 1400 BST, Sunday October 16
Location: Old Trafford, Manchester
Last result between the two: Newcastle 1-1 Man United, Premier League, December 2021
One of the big games of the Premier League weekend sees Newcastle United travel to Manchester United, where they suffered a 4-1 loss to the Red Devils on their previous visit to Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag’s side bounced back from a heavy derby defeat to Manchester City by beating Everton 2-1 on Sunday, while Newcastle got a confidence boost with a big home win over Brentford. The Manchester United v Newcastle betting odds point to a home win, but where is the best value to be found?
Goals galore for Red Devils at home
It has been an uneven start to the Ten Hag era at Manchester United, but at home there has been plenty of entertainment for fans of the Red Devils to savour.
In their three Premier League home games since the Dutchman took charge, United have scored nine goals and taken six points, bouncing back to beat Liverpool and Arsenal after losing to Brighton.
There is just a single point between Manchester United and Newcastle in the Premier League table, but Ten Hag’s men have played a game fewer than the Magpies at this stage of the campaign.
Manchester United’s recent form is good, with five wins out of their last six games in the league, though the derby defeat to Manchester City is a significant blot on their copybook. Antony has proven to be a sound investment after his big-money move from Ajax, with the Brazilian winger scoring three goals in his three Premier League appearances to date. Antony will be of interest on the player props markets for those browsing the Manchester United v Newcastle betting odds here.
Goals seems like a safe bet in this one. The past five Premier League meetings between these sides have all seen both teams score, which can be backed at 8/13 with 888Sport for Sunday afternoon’s game. Another option is the 8/11 with 888Sport for over 2.5 goals, which has landed in four of the last five meetings between Manchester United and Newcastle United as well. Manchester United to win with both teams scoring is a good value pick at 5/2 with 888Sport as well.
Magpies flying high a year after takeover
It has been a great year for Newcastle United after their long-awaited takeover went through, with the Magpies sitting in the top six of the Premier League table after thumping Brentford last time out.
Newcastle’s away form has been good all season. While Eddie Howe’s men went down 2-1 to Liverpool back in August, they have taken five points from their four league games on the road. Bruno Guimaraes has been the star of the show for Newcastle this season, with the Brazilian midfielder contributing two goals and an assist from his six Premier League appearances in the current campaign.
Newcastle have scored in their past three away league games, which is another tick in the box for backing goals galore in the Manchester United v Newcastle betting odds for Sunday afternoon’s game.
The Magpies have not won at Old Trafford in the Premier League since 2013, but the 4/5 with 888Sport on Newcastle double chance might be worth considering for this one.
Manchester United’s run of five wins from six Premier League games makes a strong case for backing them in the Manchester United v Newcastle United betting odds, though they will have to recover quickly from a Thursday night Europa League assignment at home to Omonia Nicosia.
The Red Devils to win with both teams scoring is at 5/2 with 888Sport and well worth considering given Manchester United’s defence can be leaky and Newcastle have scored in three straight away games.
Both teams to score is a solid selection at 8/13 with 888Sport – this has landed in four of the past five meetings between the sides – while Antony’s three goals in three games makes him of interest in the player props markets in the Manchester United v Newcastle betting odds as well.
