Stoke v Man Utd Premier League Betting Guide: 9th Sept 2017

Saturday 9th September

Stoke City v Manchester United 17:30, BT Sport

Man Utd head into the fourth round of games of the 2017/18 Premier League season topping the table with 9 points from their 3 wins and their latest match sees them travel to Stoke in the Saturday 5.30pm offering.

By the time this game comes around though there is a chance Man City or Liverpool could be topping the table as they face each other earlier in the day, but if you do fancy the Red Devils to continue their good start to the season then you might want to back them in the outright market at 3.25.

Looking at the match betting ahead of this Stoke v Man Utd game, the bookies price-up Stoke as big as 6.50, with the draw 4.20 and United odds-on at 1.50.

The repeat fixture last season ended in a 1-1 draw though so punters looking to wade into United at just 1.50 might want to tread carefully. In fact, both clashes last term ended 1-1 so at 8.50 this is certainly a score line to have on your radar.

The Potters are also unbeaten in their last four home league games over United, so the Stoke/Draw option in the ‘Double Chance’ market might appeal at 2.62 with punters too.

We’ve seen three draws in the last 5 head-to-heads too so at 4.20 in the match betting then there looks to be some value in this option, but when these sides meet it’s generally a tight encounter with not many goals.

5 of the last 6 head-to-heads went UNDER 2.5 GOALS so at 1.90 and a 83% strike-rate this also looks decent value, or at a slightly better value then both teams to score is another option at 2.00 – this has paid out in 5 of the last 7 clashes.

But with ALL three of Stoke’s Premier League games this season going Under 2.5 goals and with – as mentioned – 5 of the last 6 head-to-heads also seeing less than 3 goals scored then a repeat of a low-scoring game looks the way to go.

Best Bet: UNDER 2.5 GOALS @1.90
