Premier League betting tips: Newcastle United v Sheffield United

After three months away, Newcastle United return to Premier League action against an overachieving Sheffield United side that had a head start with their game in hand at Aston Villa in midweek.

Steve Bruce has done a good job with the Magpies in terms of results and is actually on course to break Rafael Benitez’ points totals in charge. 13th, they’re eight points clear of the relegation zone and surely have enough points on the board to stay up.

But it’s in the underlying numbers and performance data that should be of concern for the Toon Army; they’re vastly overperforming their xG (expected goals numbers) with the algorithm suggesting they’re consistently unable to create good chances, while they’ve been somewhat fortunate the opposition haven’t been able to take theirs. 

They’re actually bottom of the table when it comes to “expected points” which is extrapolated from expected goals for and against - bottom for expected goals scored and fourth-bottom in goals against. 

The bookmakers evidently take such underlying data into account, and make Sheffield United favourites at St. James’ Park, at odds of 13/10. 

Newcastle actually came away with a 2-0 win at Bramall Lane from the reverse fixture back in December, in which Jonjo Shelvey capitalised on some VAR confusion to score and wrap up the result midway through the second half.

But Chris Wilder’s Blades have been a different proposition on the road this season. They admittedly only won four of 14 away games before the break, but are exceptionally tough to beat with seven draws away - they’ve only lost two away games, and those were at runaway top two Liverpool and Manchester City.

We recommend backing Blades to come away with a win here. They’ve been ahead of Newcastle this season in terms of actual results and underlying data. You can back them to win at 13/10, or exponentially boost those odds with both teams to score at 11/2

    Joelinton scored just his second Premier League goal as Newcastle dented 10-man Sheffield United’s charge for Europe with a 3-0 win on their return to action.

    The £40million Brazilian striker, who was guilty of a glaring first-half miss, redeemed himself 12 minutes from time to wrap up what proved to be a comprehensive victory at St James’ Park.

    Allan Saint-Maximin opened the scoring after 55 minutes after Blades defender John Egan had been sent off for a second bookable offence, and Matt Ritchie made it 2-0 with a sumptuous strike 14 minutes later.

    But it was Joelinton, whose last league goal had come 301 days earlier, who rounded things off to complete a double over the Blades – who would have gone fifth with a win – and a thoroughly satisfactory afternoon for the Magpies.

    The visitors, perhaps understandably with a game already under their belt, started the sharper, but it was Newcastle who created the game’s first real chances as Joelinton failed to make a telling connection with Ritchie’s 11th-minute corner before Saint-Maximin sent a dangerous pull-back skidding across the penalty area.

    Ritchie warmed Dean Henderson’s hands with a 14th-minute piledriver from distance as the Magpies grew into the game, but Joelinton squandered a golden opportunity three minutes later when he scuffed his shot with just the keeper to beat after Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron had staged a pacy counter-attack.

    Egan has to throw himself into the path of Jonjo Shelvey’s stinging 20th-minute strike and although Billy Sharp volleyed over at the other end, the home side continued to enjoy the better of it.

    The Blades restored a measure of control with Oliver Norwood prominent in the middle of the field as the half ran down without ever genuinely threatening Martin Dubravka’s goal.

    Newcastle were handed a potentially significant advantage within five minutes of the restart when Joelinton got the better of Egan as they set off in pursuit of Federico Fernandez’s clearance and the defender, who had already been booked, dragged him back and received a second yellow card.

    The Magpies eventually took the lead with 55 minutes gone when Ritchie found space down the left and drilled in a low cross which defender Enda Stevens should have cleared. But he missed the ball, allowing Saint-Maximin to beat Henderson at his near post.

    Chris Wilder’s men might have been level within four minutes after full-back George Baldock picked out Sharp at the far post.

    Ritchie took advantage with 20 minutes remaining when, after picking up possession 40 yards out, he made ground and then unleashed a rising drive which screamed past the keeper.

    There was still time for Joelinton to wrap up the victory from Almiron’s 78th-minute cross.

    Speaking to Sky Sports Main Event after the game, Saint-Maximin was delighted to get back to winning ways.

    “Yes, I am really happy because my team win this game. I said before it was important to restart with a win and that is what we did today.

    “You always have to be ready and it is what I was in this game, I try to concentrate and score the goal to help my team, I’m really happy to score.

    “Everyone is happy because we work really hard and won 3-0 and it is a really good win.”

    Sheffield United Manager Chris Wilder
