Man City vs Newcastle United Football Betting Tips; Pep’s Manchester City are fresh from winning the UEFA Super Cup for the first time in their history. On Saturday they face the team that is arguably their long-term pretenders to the throne, Newcastle United at the Etihad. Here we look ahead to the game.
- Who - Manchester City vs Newcastle United
- Competition - 2023/24 Premier League
- When - Saturday, 19th August, 2023
- Time - 8 pm BST
This is the first Saturday night 8pm kick-off of the 2023/23 Premier League season. And what a fixture it is to get started with! Man City started the season with a 3-0 win away at Burnley. Newcastle with a 5-1 demolition of Aston Villa at St James.
Manchester City are going for a fourth Premier League title in a row. They’re the odds-on favourites to win the title again this season, and they’ve just won the Champions League and UEFA Super Cup for the first time in their history.
Newcastle are at the beginning of the latest chapter in their history. Eddie Howe has done an outstanding job since taking over at St James Park in November 2021. In less than two years in the job, he has taken the club from relegation candidates, to the Champions League.
This season will be interesting for the club. They will be competing in the Champions League and the Premier League, which will be a real test for what is an emerging squad. And it is also the first time Eddie Howe will have managed in the Champions League.
Man City vs Newcastle United Betting
- Man City 4/6
- Draw 11/5
- Newcastle 16/5
The latest football betting odds on the match seem reasonable to us. Newcastle have a strong starting XI, but it will still be a shock if they leave the Etihad with three points.
But City aren’t guaranteed the win, which makes 4/6 on them winning seem fair enough. It’s rare to see Manchester City this long in the betting at home though, and it could be that they have to be one of the best football tips for today on odds alone!

Man City vs Newcastle Betting Tips
So, how does Newcastle play this? They put five past Aston Villa last weekend, they’re in the Champions League, and they aspire to compete for the Premier League title.
They can’t surely go to the Etihad and batten down the hatches, can they?
But the problem for Eddie Howe is that if they take the game to City, they will most probably be thrashed. I believe Eddie Howe won’t let his ego take over and he will play a canny game.
He won’t make it easy for Manchester City. But it’s hard to see them stopping Pep’s team.
For our football betting tips, we’re going for a Bet Builder. We’re starting with a home win for Manchester City at 4/6. Those odds can’t be ignored. To add to the bet we’re throwing in Rodri to have two or more shots in the match. That is 5/6.
The two bets combined pay just over 2/1. So for a £10 bet, you would get just over £30 back if both bets win!
