Michael Owen has been having a look at the Newcastle United v Manchester United match on Tuesday night.

Commenting on the fact that Newcastle have lost their last four matches 1-0, the former NUFC and Man U striker doesn’t expect a ‘goal fest’.

Throw in the fact that Man Utd have scored more than one goal only once in their last six games, it doesn’t have the look of a classic…

For vastly different reasons, there are massive incentives for both teams to come out of their shells.

Whilst three points would lift Newcastle out of the relegation zone at least until Swansea play the mackems the following night, despite all the negativity currently surrounding the Mancs, they are still only three points off the Champions League places.

Newcastle fans might be a little shock because Michael Owen thinks there is very little between the teams and has actually come down on the side of Newcastle!

Saying that the value lies with Newcastle, Owen suggests punters back the double bet of Newcastle to either win or draw.

Michael Owen writing for BetVictor:

“The Magpies have lost their last four competitive games by the only goal of the game and it would be a surprise if we saw a goal fest at St James’s Park between two of my old Clubs.

“There is likely to be little between the sides and perhaps the value lies with the hosts.

“Michael Owen’s recommendation: Double chance Newcastle and the draw at 21/20.”
