Newcastle vs. Manchester Utd
T's a live TV clash between the "Wally with the Brolly" and the "Dutch Disaster" on Tuesday night when Newcastle entertain Manchester United at St James' Park. All eyes will be on both dug-outs as a defeat for Steve McClaren or Louis Van Gaal in this one or yet another inept performance; in a season full of them for both sides could say one or maybe even both managers being sacked before the weekend.

These two sides are boring their fans to tears at the moment and both sets of supporters will be reminiscing previous clashes between these two great clubs over the years', but this one is going to be anything but a classic. When they met in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford they played out a dire goalless draw and goals look certain to be hard to come by again on Tuesday night.


My Top Picks
The best way to profit for all punters on Tuesday is to get stuck into the the lack of goals and the best two soccer picks that I will be playing are the 1.72 which is with Ladbrokes on the match to feature under 2.5 and at the slightly bigger 1.83 on both teams to score as a "no" which is available at BetVictor. Under 2.5 goals has now been a winner in seven of the last eight Newcastle matches and under 1.5 goals; which is also tempting at 3.25 with BetVictor again on Tuesday night, well that would have also seen you collect in the last four matches for the Magpies and it's not much better over at Manchester United.

Van Gaal's side where just awful scraping home 1-0 in the FA Cup win over lowly League One Sheffield United and under 2.5 goals has seen you collect in four of their last five matches as well - so goal look hard to come by. On the BTTS lists this clash looks the banker "no" of midweek and it's been a winning bet now in nine of the last 12 Newcastle matches and also in 10 of the last 15 United games.

My entire betting portfolio on this one is concentrating on the lack of goals, but the soccer odds also make some interesting reading with the visitors as short odds-on at a best-price 1.83 with Betfred to win this, why? I have no idea. They've shown nothing in recent weeks. They don't seem to be side performing for the manager and have no away win in the Premier League since October and they are odds-on?

Former United boss McClaren is 5.00 to guide his Newcastle side to a win with William Hill and Bet365 and he will have his players up for this match four sure, but four defeats in a row and no goals in any of those matches are massive concern when the best defense in the Premier League come to the "Toon". Another way to get against goals is to back the match to be drawing 0-0 at half-time at 2.75 with William Hills and Paddy Power.

Amazingly, Saturday's goalless first half in the FA Cup was the NINTH time in the last 10 Man United matches that the scoreline has been 0-0 at the half-time whistle and on the stats alone that is crying out to be backed.
