At tonight’s Newcastle United v Man U clash, we will have the pleasure of our old friend Michael Owen’s company.

Working for BT Sport, the former player for both teams will be commentating on the match…so the advice is either snap up one of the so far unsold tickets or turn the volume down. He must surely be the worst pundit of all time with his monotone voice and worthless comments.

In his betting column for BetVictor, Owen has gone for a surprising (to me anyway) outcome in the game. His suggestion is backing Newcastle not to lose, that bet paying 4/5.

Michael Owen

“I am looking forward to going to St James’ Park as I’ll be commentating on the game for BT Sports on Wednesday night when Newcastle host Manchester United.

“Both sides won at the weekend, however both were far from convincing and I think Louis Van Gaal’s side want taking on at around the even money mark.”
