One of the Premier League highlights on Sunday has surely got to be the clash between Manchester United and Tottenham.
The sides have both bad fair – if not impressive – starts to the season, with United on 3 points from two games and Spurs on 4 points from their opening three matches.
The match betting for this clash sees Man Utd as the clear favourites at 1.85, with the draw 3.75 and Spurs as big as 4.00.
All the talk heading into the game though will surely surround the former United boss – Jose Mourhino – who is now at Spurs, so this will add an interesting sub-plot to the fixture with ‘the Special One’ keen to get one over on his old employers.
Last season this fixture ended Man Utd 2-1 Spurs, so a repeat of that can be backed at 9.50, and the Red Devils also took 4 points off the Londoners last term. However, it’s also worth noting that 3 of the last 5 repeat fixtures ended 1-0 to United and the home side have also won 4 of the last 6 home league games vs Spurs ‘to nil’.
United to win 1-0 is on offer at 8.50, while a United win ‘to nil’ can be backed at 3.40.
In fact, Man Utd have lost just three home league games since the Premier League started (28 games), but it is worth noting we’ve seen 4 draws in the last 15 head-to-heads (home and away).
With 5 of the last 8 meetings producing UNDER 2.5 GOALS, then this might appeal at 1.90, while both teams ‘DIDN’T’ score in 9 of the last 12 meetings – a repeat of this would be rewarded at 2.00.
However, a tricky game to call the safe option could be to side with the draw. Both sides are more than capable of coming back should they go a goal down and that’s exactly what Spurs did in midweek in their 1-1 draw against Chelsea.
JUICESTORM VERDICT: DRAW @3.75
