Man Utd vs. Newcastle Betting Tips: 25/1 anytime goalscorer double
Two Premier League teams knocking on the top-four door lock horns at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon at 2pm. Man Utd, 5th, have won five of their last six top-flight matches to spring up to within a point of Chelsea (4th), while back-to-back high-scoring wins have elevated Newcastle up to 6th, a point behind Erik ten Hag’s side.
Below we pick out two bets for the match, including a 25/1 goalscorer double...
Man Utd vs Newcastle Tips
Man Utd have carded eight wins in 10 matches in all competitions since losing their opening two games of the season. Yes, there have been further set-backs such as the defeat at home to Real Sociedad and 6-3 humbling at Man City, but on the whole there have been many positives to take with the club heading in the right direction under Ten Hag.
There were a few nerves jangling in the Newcastle camp before their matches against Fulham and Brentford. The Toon then only had one win on the board with their struggle to convert draws into victories a problem. However, they swatted away the pressure in style: pummelling Fulham 4-1 in London then thrashed Brentford 5-1 at St James’ Park.
You can now find Eddie Howe’s side at 11/4 to record their third straight win and subsequently jump above Man Utd in the table. The hosts are around even-money for this one, whereas a draw is available at 14/5.
The hidden gem bet of the weekend could well be Miguel Almirón to register a shot on target at 7/4 with bet365.
Rejuvenated this season, the in-form attacking midfielder is enjoying a real purple patch with three goals in his last two games, including a brace against Fulham. He’s now scored more Premier League goals (four) than any other Newcastle or Man Utd player this season, and has double the amount of last season’s Golden Boot winner Mo Salah (2)!
An Almiron shot on target has landed in each of his last three appearances, while he’s hit the target twice in each of his last two games. He looks a cracking price at 7/4 with bet365 when compared to the even-money offering over at Paddy Power, while he’s odds-on at Sky Bet.
For the long shot we’ve put together a 25/1 anytime goalscorer double via bet365’s BetBuilder feature.
Almiron’s attacking threat and goalscoring numbers have been highlighted in the above section. He’ll be full of confidence heading to Old Trafford against a Man Utd side that concede a fair few goals - nine in their last four games - and catches the eye at 6/1 to find the back the net once again.
As for Man Utd, I like the look of new star Antony at 9/4 in the same market. The skillful winger has wasted no time in getting accustomed to the Premier League, netting in each of his three games so far.
Pair these two bets together and you get a decent looking 25/1.
