It’s going to happen eventually, right?
Sheffield United are still winless this season in the Premier League, and while time isn’t exactly running out, there are real fears that Chris Wilder’s blunt Blades are going to get cut adrift.
Newcastle aren’t exactly flying.
The Magpies have won just two of their last 10 fixtures and are beginning to feel the wrath of their Geordie faithful.
Scroll down to check our our top Odds Picks for Tuesday’s crunch tie, as well as a tempting Long Shot at 15/2.

Our Top Odds Pick – Sheffield United to beat Newcastle United – 7/5 at bet365
This one feels like the best opportunity for Sheffield United to end their miserable run.
The Blades haven’t won a Premier League fixture in their last 20 attempts – a 3-0 summer victory over Chelsea was the last time Wilder could celebrate three points.
Still, a 3-2 away win at Bristol Rovers in the weekend’s FA Cup would have done wonders for their confidence, with Oliver Burke and Jayden Bogle getting on the scoresheet.
All good things must come to an end – bad things too. 7/5 says Sheffield United can finally celebrate a league win.
Our Long Shot – David McGoldrick to score first – 15/2 at bet365
Chris Wilder seems to be relying on David McGoldrick’s services.
The Irishman has started the last five Premier League matches for Sheffield United and has contributed to three goals over that time.
His power, presence and ability on the ball links a lot of The Blades’ good work going forward and he’s just as likely as anyone on the pitch to net the opener.
