Man United vs Newport County prediction, odds, expert betting tips and best bets for FA Cup fourth round

Manchester United have little to gain and a lot to lose as they travel to visit League Two side Newport County in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Red Devils will be heavily expected to win, and anything less than a convincing victory could provide unnecessary noise for what has already become a difficult and criticism-laden campaign.

United are mired in another rough spell, having won just one of their last six Premier League matches putting Erik ten Hag under more and more pressure. Multiple players have been singled out for their poor performances, including captain Bruno Fernandes, who has been without a goal contribution in Premier League play since late November, although he scored in their FA Cup third-round win over Wigan.

Newport County sits 14th in the League Two table, not close to either a promotion spot or a relegation battle. They are in good form having gone eight unbeaten across all competitions, but that will do little to steer Man United off their perch as massive favourites in this match.

Man United vs Newport County: best bet

  • Pick: Under 3.5 total goals
  • Odds: +110 (DraftKings)

Even if Manchester United win this match handily, they are just not a team that is likely to blow another club out of the water. The Red Devils beat League One side Wigan 2-0 in the third round of the FA Cup, and even as they pummeled the Latics with 33 shots worth 4.03 xG, they still managed just two goals.

Manchester United has too many finishing issues and too many squad concerns to be backed to run up the score, and whether Erik ten Hag decides to rotate his starting lineup or not, the plus odds on a comfortable but not overwhelming scoreline present significant value.
