Betting Tip: Under 2.5 Goals @ 8/11 with bet365

With just two wins from ten home matches played, we’re not saying that Newcastle are a fantastic bet to win Tuesday’s BT Sport-televised clash against Manchester United.

However, they face a Red Devils team who have won just four of their ten away matches, with Louis van Gaal’s team attracting plenty of criticism for their performances.

United sit fifth and look in danger of missing out on a Champions League spot this term, with Liverpool just three points behind and Leicester seven points ahead at the moment.

At least the defence is half-decent and another clean sheet was achieved against Sheffield United in the FA Cup while Newcastle were narrowly losing at Vicarage Road.

Steve McClaren has had it tough all season and the Magpies are still in the bottom three with eighteen games remaining.

However, it’s worth noting that Newcastle have no fear against the top teams and could have recently left the Emirates with a victory instead of losing by a 1-0 scoreline against Arsenal.

McClaren will be half-pleased that the team are out of the FA Cup and ready to focus on a few cup finals in the Premier League instead.

While the last four matches have all ended in defeat, three have been on the road and all have been by a slender 1-0 scoreline.

Which means that a low-scoring match looks on the cards. After all, if United can’t break down modest League One opposition, they might find life tough against a Newcastle team who always seem to raise their game against the top sides.
