Newcastle v Manchester United Betting Preview

United’s away performances haven’t been great at all this season but they are still going as favourites for their trip to St James Park on Wednesday night. Newcastle are still too unreliable for a lot of punters, but will they be able to take advantage of the obvious weaknesses that Louis van Gaal’s men have shown on the road this season?

Newcastle v Manchester United Betting Tips

With a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa on the weekend, Newcastle recorded just their second win in their last eight matches. That was an important three points because they have a really tough run of fixtures coming up and John Carver is going to be doing a lot of sweating about holding on to the managerial position. At home in the Premier League this season, Newcastle have a record of W2 D2 L2 so a bit unpredictable to say the least. Interestingly, none of their last twelve home games has seen more than a one goal winning margin for the victors in a game at St James Park. It suggests that this is going to be a tight game, because the Red Devils have been terrible on the road.

The Magpies have fired blanks in three of their last four home league meetings with Man Utd, though they did win the other 3-0. The Tyneside outfit have had their issues in dealing with Manchester United in the top flight, because they have only managed to beat the Red Devils in two of the last 24 Premier League matches against them (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 is running at a 2/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market, and he has the best minutes per goal rate in the Premier League this season (min. 4 goals); one every 84 minutes.

It is no secret that Manchester United have rarely put in a good performance this season. But even playing badly they seem to find a way to win, even with their flimsy looking midfield. Most of their winning form though has come at Old Trafford and they have looked very shaky on the road. They have only lost two of their last seventeen league matches, they have won just one of their last six on the road (W1 D4 L1). They suffered the defeat in their last away game, going down 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium against Swansea, a defeat which snapped a seven match undefeated sequence on the road.

United have put up a W3 D7 L3 record on the road this season. Wayne Rooney is a quote of 7/4 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market at Betfair, and he has netted 12 Premier League goals against the Magpies; a joint-high against any opponent along with Aston Villa. He netted both goals in United’s 2-0 home win over Sunderland on the weekend. Rooney incidentally became the first player in Premier League history to score 10+ goals in 11 consecutive seasons. Hard to see the game going over 2.5 goals, because after the weekend, this is likely to be tight, with neither doing much to impress.

Newcastle v Manchester United Betting Odds

Manchester United even money, draw 5/2, Newcastle 3/1

Newcastle v Manchester United Predictions

These two are as unconvincing as each other. That should actually give Newcastle a sniff of a point in this one, because United have played some real stinkers on the road this season, and apart from Wayne Rooney, don’t have anyone playing with any conviction. Roll for a low scoring game, and a winner to come by a one goal margin.

Di Maria (Manchester United)

Manchester United v Sunderland Betting Preview

Can United respond to that disappointing defeat down at the Liberty Stadium last weekend against Swansea? Punters will be expecting them to do so, as they go as odds on favourites against the Black Cats, who still can’t shake that sinking feeling of the relegation zone looming large over their Wearside shoulders.

There is enough forward power in United to have a look at Betfred’s Double Delight/Hat Trick heaven promotion. back a successful first goalscorer selection in the game, and if that player then goes on to score a second or even a third at anytime, then you will be paid out double or treble your original first goalscorer odds ! New customers registering an account with Betfred can get upto a free £30 bet as a welcome bonus.

Manchester United v Sunderland Betting Tips

The United front line misfired badly at the Liberty Stadium, but you would expect them to go a bit better back at Old Trafford. Robin van Persie has scored six goals in five Premier League starts at home against Sunderland for Arsenal and Manchester United, but with his ankle injury, it has left the market leaders in the form of Radamel Falcao and Wayne Rooney both at 6/5. While the Red Devils have been shaky on the road, they have been far more prolific on home turf, winning seven (L1) of their last eight there.

Five of United’s last six league victories at Old Trafford have seen them score exactly three goals and Louis van Gaal’s side have conceded exactly once in eight of their last 11 home league games, keeping three clean sheets. May be enough to tip things towards a both teams to score wager for a price of 11/10 because of United’s defence. All in all, you would expect Manchester United to land three points here because they have won 10 and lost just one of their 13 Premier League home games against Sunderland (D2).

The Black Cats may have only scored 10 goals in their last 15 Premier League outings, but four of those have happened in their last three away games, lending a little more weight to both teams to score. Going over 2.5 goals also looks a reasonable option here. The Black Cats aren’t in any kind of form though to roll into Old Trafford and steal a win as they have won just one of their last nine Premier League matches (W1 D3 L5). They have drawn more games (13) than any other team in the history of the Premier League after 26 games.

But even with that, you don’t see them really getting a draw out of this one, which they did manage at home against United back in August. Sunderland have put up a poor W2 D6 L4 record on the road this season and have lost two of their last three, those defeats though coming at Man City and Tottenham, and both only by a one goal margin. Clearly not enough to warrant jumping on the backs of Sunderland to pull off a repeat of their shock 1-0 win at Old Trafford in last season’s corresponding fixture.

Manchester United v Sunderland Betting Odds

Manchester United 4/11, Draw 4/1, Sunderland 9/1

Manchester United v Sunderland Predictions

The Black Cats have lost just one of their last four against United in all competitions (W2 D1) but it is still not enough to desert the Red Devils here. Push for a comfortable home win as United have been scoring well on home soil and they should be good for a two goal winning margin which is a 3/1 option at online betting site Betfred.

The Skybet Price Boost for this weekend again embraces an attractive looking enhanced odds treble on Saturday’s Premier League action. The popular promotion sees customers able to take advantage of a price boost from 4/1 up to 6/1 on Manchester United, Newcastle and Stoke all landing victories!

All three games are 3pm kick offs in the Barclays Premier League. Manchester United will be looking to extend their great home form this season, and put last weekend’s defeat at Swansea behind them, with an expected victory over Sunderland at Old Trafford.

Newcastle will look to bank a home three points as well as they take on the struggling Aston Villa at St James’ Park, while the treble is rounded out by Stoke, who will be expected to take down Hull with the Tigers having lost six of their last nine away games.

The Skybet enhanced odds offer is open to all customers and new customers who want to join in on the action can enjoy a free £20 bet just for placing their first £5 single wager on the new account.

Bet Victor

Manchester United, who are 2/5 favourites to take a Premier League win over Sunderland on Saturday are one of the big home bankers of the weekend’s football betting action. Even though the Red Devils slumped to a defeat last time out on the road at Swansea, their immense home form is expected to be more than enough to post a comfortable win against the struggling Sunderland.

Sunderland stunned United at Old Trafford last season, taking a 1-0 win, and that victory was completely against the form and books, as that has been their only victory in their last 25 Premier League games played against United (W1 D6 L18). Things are expected to return to normal, and United aren’t likely to suffer the same fate again on Saturday.

United have won 10 and lost just one of their 13 Premier League home games against Sunderland (D2) then they are justifiable favourites to bank the victory. Even more so with Sunderland having scored just 10 goals in their last 15 top flight matches and winning just one of their last nine games played.

New customers opening an account with Bet Victor can claim a massive 3/1 enhanced odds on Manchester United to beat Sunderland.

The maximum total stake is £10 and has to be the first bet on the new Bet Victor account. If Man Utd beat Sunderland you will be paid out at the normal price and will have the extra amount (bringing the amount up to the enhanced pay-out price) credited within 24 hours of bet settlement.

Customers at online betting site Skybet can jump in on their usual weekend promotional offering that is the SkyBet Soccer Special Price Boost. There’s a great day of action on Saturday, as some of the big guns in the league try to pick up vital points and Skybet are putting three of them into an enhanced odds offer.

You can back Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all to win for a price of a 5/1 enhanced odds treble, a quote which is boosted from 3/1.

Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea will be looking to maintain their seven point lead in the title race over Manchester City on the weekend, as they host relegation-threatened Burnley. Boosted by the league return of Diego Costa, Chelsea are heavy odds-on favourites for the three points.

Arsenal head into a london derby against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Even though Alan Pardew has breathed new life and exuberance into the Eagles, Arsenal’s Premier League formed against them at Selhurst Park speaks for itself, and the Gunners are locked in as match favourites.

Completing the enhanced odds treble at Skybet are Manchester United. They head to the Liberty Stadium to take on Gary Monk’s Swans, who are struggling for goals after selling off Wilfried Bony to Man City. There’s hasn’t been enough from the home side to stop Louis van Gaal’s men going as favourites, even though they haven’t been the best looking away side this season.

The Skybet enhanced odds of 5/1 on Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all to win is open to both new and existing customers alike.

De Gea (Manchester United)

Swansea v Manchester United Betting Preview

An interesting game down in South Wales as Manchester United look to solidify their chances of booking a top four finish this season. The Red Devils have looked shaky on the road though defensively and tacticall, so will that let Swansea in to do what would be a mightily surprising league double over the Old Trafford crew?

Dip into the first goalscorer market at online betting site Boylesports and grab some great extra value on the popular market. Back a selectin in the first goalscorer market and if your player scores the opening goal inside the first twenty minutes of the game, Boylesports will double your original odds for you! Great promotion and new customers registering an account with them can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Swansea v Manchester United Betting Tips

The Swans are clutching onto a to a mid table spot despite having won just one of their last seven Premier League matches. They are currently winless in their last three at home, having taken away two draws and a loss there recently. They did pull out a shock 2-1 win at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season though, but their bright start to the season has long been forgotten. Swansea have now scored just nine goals from their last 11 Premier League matches and not more than once in a game during that run. Problems there and selling off Wilfried Bony doesn’t appear to have been the smartest of moves by them.

Swansea have put up just a W1 D3 L3 record in their last seven and may find the going hard against a United side, who haven’t even been all that convincing on the road this season. Hard to see where the goals are coming from for Garry Monk’s men and the best that they may be able to get out of this one is a draw. No team has scored fewer goals from set pieces than Swansea, so they haven’t even got that direct route to count on, which is a great way to get at the United defence. United have conceded a league high 46% of goals through set pieces. So Swansea may struggle to get anything on the board here and could tempt punters to back United to win to nil.

After losing six and winning none of their first eight league visits to Swansea, Man Utd have won two and lost none of the last three at the Liberty. They hadn’t lost any (W5 D1) of their six previous Premier League fixtures against Swansea before their home loss against the Welsh outfit on the opening day of the season. Robin van Persie has scored three goals in three Premier League appearances at Liberty Stadium and is an even money quote in the anytime goalscorer market, while Wayne Rooney is 9/4. Remarkably though, Rooney hasn’t has a shot on target in the six league games he has played in 2015. Still, looks more likely to sore than Radamel Falcao who is looking more and more like a bust with every appearance.

Swansea v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man Utd even money, Draw 12/5, Swansea 3/1

Swansea v Manchester United Predictions

The Red Devils have lost just one of their last 15 Premier League matches (W10 D4 L1). In that 15 game run, they have picked up more points than any other team in the top flight. That’s good enough to back them in the outright market at Boylesports to take a win at the Liberty on Saturday.

Rooney-Van Persie (Manchester United)

The draw for the quarter finals of the FA Cup has thrown together a huge clash of Manchester United v Arsenal, after the Red Devils gathered themselves at Deepdale on Monday night after falling behind in the game. It is the tie of the round and many punters will be expecting that the winner of that tie will likely go on and win the cup.

Arsenal are 4.3 at online betting site Betfair to lift the trophy after securing passage to the final eight on the weekend with a win over Championship high flyers Middlesbrough at the Emirates on the weekend. United, are 3.9 for cup success in what is their only chance of silverware this season under Louis van Gaal.

There will be guaranteed one non-Premier League outfit making a trip to Wembley in this season’s competition, as Bradford and Reading square off. The Bantams, who pulled off a huge shock at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea in the fourth round, followed up that success with a 2-0 home win over Sunderland on the weekend.

Championship outfit Reading picked up an underdog result on the weekend too, as they won on the road against Derby to book their place in the final eight. The winner of the Bradford v Reading betting clash will move on through to the semi final at Wembley this year.

Liverpool, who broke their Selhurst Park hoodoo to beat Crystal Palace in the fifth round, are at 3.15 with Betfair to lift the trophy this season. They made a return to Anfield for their quarter final match where they will host Championship side Blackburn who defeated Stoke at Ewood Park on the weekend.

The other quarter final tie has produced a Midlands derby, with West Brom heading over to face rivals Aston Villa in the other all-Premier League tie.

FA Cup Quarter Final Draw

Preston v Manchester United Betting Preview

The draw could not have been kinder for the Red Devils in this season’s FA Cup and they head to Deepdale on Monday night to try and secure a place in the quarter finals. However, the Red Devil’s haven’t impressed in their away games in the tournament so far this season, and the positive Preston could well have a good chance to get some pressure on them.

New customers registering an account with online betting site Coral through this special link here, can get a huge enhanced odds offer. New customers who place their first bet on a new account of £5 on Manchester United to beat Preston can do so at huge 7/1 odds on the Red Devils winning at Deepdale.

Preston v Manchester United Betting Tips

Both sides needed a fourth round replay to set up this clash. While United were digging out a win against Cambridge, Preston comfortably beat fellow League One outfits Sheffield United at the second attempt. Preston are in some positive form, having won their last three in a row and have they have lost just one of their last six (W3 D2 L1). So pretty good and they will see the opportunity to claim a massive scalp here. Preston are challenging for a place in next season’s Championship so are on the up. They have a good home record running as well, putting up three wins, four draws and just one loss in their last eight at Deepdale. They wouldn’t be too upset most likely to get a draw and enjoy a payday back at Old Trafford as Cambridge did.

Could well be worth a dabble on the both teams to score market for a  price of 10/11 with online betting site Coral, because North End have failed to score in just one of their home matches all season in all competitions. With United looking vulnerable in the air at the back, the League One side will probably get some chances. The last time that Manchester United went to Preston was back in the 1972 FA Cup, a game which North End lost 2-0. Preston forward Paul Gallagher has a Cup scoring touch going this term, as he has five goals in this season’s FA Cup and is a 4/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market for North End.

But at the head of the anytime goalscorer market is Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao and Wayne Rooney who are all even money quotes. Falcao clearly isn’t working out at United, and Robin van Persie looks a step off the pace of things, so perhaps Wayne Rooney is the best option to run with, with James Wilson a decent 6/4 option as well. Even though the draw has been kind to United this season, they haven’t really impressed on the road against the lower tiered opposition which they have come up against so far. In their last seven games on the road, they have posted draws in five of them. Even though they haven’t looked great they are unbeaten in their last six in all competitions.

Preston v Manchester United Betting Odds

Manchester United 1/2, Draw 7/2, Preston 13/2

Preston v Manchester United Predictions

It should be a very winnable match for Manchester United, but they have been drawing at half time in nine of their last ten away games. That should make it pretty closely contested and Preston will probably get chances from set pieces. Manchester United to scrape through looks the best option to roll with, United to win by a one goal margin is a 5/2 quote.

Manchester United have been handed just about the easiest run in the FA Cup that they could have ever hoped for. The Red Devils have gone up against Yeovil and Cambridge so far and their quest against lower-tiered opposition continued when they were drawn against League One outfit Person in the fifth round.

The two will meet at Deepdale on Monday evening and even though Untied have been far from convincing on the road, scraping out a win over Yeovil and then needing a replay against Cambridge, they have gotten the job done and are expected to have the class and power too see off North End.

Louis van Gaal’s men are trading as 1/2 odds on favourites for the win, with Preston running as 6/1 underdogs.

However, if you were thinking of backing United but the odds of 1/2 aren’t too appealing for your FA Cup betting, then you are going to want to go and look at the brilliant Coral enhanced odds offer for your Preston v Manchester United FA Cup betting.

Coral are running enhanced odds of 7/1 on a Manchester United victory.

These enhanced odds are for new customers only and the offer is valid to KO time at 19:45 hrs UK time on Monday 16th February. New customers might sign up through this special link and then place their first stake of £5 on Manchester United to beat Person at the regular price of 4/9 with Coral.

If the bet is a winner then you will be paid out £7.22 in real money when the market is settled and then £32.78 will be paid out as free bets within 24 hours (Tuesday morning).
