Under 2.5 goals at Sheffield United vs Newcastle 8/13 for Tuesday’s Premier League matchup
Competition: Premier League
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 8/13 @ 888sport
Two sides who find themselves desperately seeking a Premier League bounce in midweek, Sheffield United will host Newcastle from behind closed doors on Tuesday evening.
Starting with the hosts, while Sheffield United might have managed to land an FA Cup bounce over the weekend, they are in the midst of a Premier League nightmare. In their 17 top-flight contests so far this season, they are remarkably yet to record a single victory, with two draws against 15 defeats, scoring just eight and conceding 29 in return. Along with opening the midweek fixtures sat rock-bottom of the table and 12 points adrift of safety, United comfortably hold the worst-attacking record in the division. As for their recent run of Premier League results, Tuesday’s hosts have lost 11 of their last 12 top-flight contests and they have also collected just a single point from their last nine home fixtures continuing on from last season. It’s also worth highlighting that United have recorded just a single goal in their last four top-flight matchups.
As for the visitors, crashing out of the FA Cup over the weekend, Newcastle are another outfit who find themselves in the midst of what has been an extended sluggish patch. In their 16 Premier League matchups so far this season, they have recorded five wins, four draws and seven defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 26 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 19, the Magpies open the midweek fixtures sat 15th in the table and already seven points adrift of finding a route into the top-half of the table. As for their recent run of results, suffering a 2-0 loss away at Arsenal in the FA Cup on Saturday evening, Newcastle have failed to win any of their last seven straight matchups across all formats, losing five of those appearances. Also managing to record just a single goal in any of their last five outings, we’re backing another low-scoring contest in midweek.
