Newcastle vs. Man Utd Betting Predictions & Picks | 2021/22 Premier League Betting Preview

At the moment, Manchester United are in sixth place (go figure lol) with 27 points, one point behind West Ham in fifth and five behind Arsenal in fourth. Newcastle is one spot off the bottom Norwich, but have the same number of points, ten. However, United have two games to play and could easily climb to Arsenal’s fourth… but will they get all three points off Newcastle who are absolutely desperate for positive results? Well, that’s what our Newcastle vs. Man Utd betting picks are here to find out!


It’s the first match after Christmas for both these teams. They’re coming into this one from vastly different positions, though. Newcastle is hoping to kick off their rebuild this winter, but they need a positive saldo because not many players will want to join a sinking ship. United could be boosting their roster this January too, with reports suggesting they could get Leipzig’s Spaniard Dani Olmo. But, these are topics for another time. From now on, we’ll be focusing solely on factors important for our Newcastle vs. Man Utd betting picks!

Newcastle vs. Man Utd Betting Odds

Here are the odds for this Premier League matchup:

Man Utd to win:
-223
Newcastle to win:
+550
Draw:
+375
Both teams to score:
-130
Odds are subject to change!

Obviously, Manchester United are coming into this one as massive favorites. Not only are they in much better form, have a much better roster, but they’re also on a four-match winning streak against the Magpies. Last time out, United won 4:1 at home in September, with two additional matches over the last two years finishing with the exact same result. The only odd one out happened this February; United failed to score one more goal with the end result finishing at 3:1.

Newcastle vs. Man Utd Betting Predictions

Even though these two are coming from vastly different backgrounds, both are looking for all three points here. Yes, even struggling Newcastle, for more reasons than what might meet the eye at first. So, are we going to see a winner here, or will the Magpies and the Red Devils tie the clash with one point each?

Man Utd Betting Preview: Will United Fans Get their Christmas Present?

One point wouldn’t mean much to Manchester United, not just because it would have come from the nineteenth-place team but because it wouldn’t really improve their current situation. You see, United are on a three-match winning streak which pushed them back into Champions League discussions… but one draw from the next two matches and Arsenal will be too far away once again.

United doesn’t get anything noteworthy in case of a draw here.

As for the injuries, United’s only certain absentee is Paul Pogba. However, Cavani, Martial, and Varane are under question mark, so that’s something to think about going forward. As for Newcastle, they have a handful of certain absentees – Dummett, Fernandez, Hayden, and Lewis. Hayden is the only player off on yellow cards, with the remaining three out due to injuries.
Rangnick’s United is expected to attack right from the kickoff. We know for a fact they’ll play with their usual aggression and high pressure. It’s not certain if we’re going to see C. Ronaldo start the game, though, but even if he doesn’t, United will have plenty of options in attack.

Newcastle Betting Preview: Newcastle Is Desperate for Points

Newcastle won’t keep much of their current starting eleven next season, that’s certain. But, the likes of Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin are definitely going to be around next year, having a rather dominant season for the Magpies. Wilson has six goals to his name, Saint-Maximin has three. However, Allan also has three assists, leading the team in that department.

On the defensive end, Ritchie, Clark, Lascelles, and Murphy have secured their status as starters in recent weeks. However, considering Newcastle have conceded more than three goals over the last three matches, and more than two goals per game on average, the new owners are likely to start changing stuff from the back.

Newcastle’s 4-5-1 won’t really pose a threat to United, unless they go all-in and open themselves up on the counterattack.

But, I really can’t see that happening here. What I can see happening is United getting an early lead and then building on it for the remainder of the game.

Newcastle vs. Man Utd Betting Picks

It’s time for the wrap-up, lads. Here it goes:

The Bet
United to win at -223
-+105

Yep, a simple moneyline is what we’re going for here! At -223, the odds for United to win actually possess a ton of value. Remember, Newcastle is in horrible form, and I for one think it’ll continue well after the Man Utd clash.
If they’re lucky, the Magpies will manage to sign one or two decent players next month… players who’ll help them secure a spot in the Premier League next season. If they’re not lucky, I’m afraid their first whole season under new ownership will be a story of winning the Championship.
That’d be all from our Newcastle vs. Man Utd betting predictions. Hope you guys have a wonderful week and, as always, thanks for reading the whole piece!
