Most Premier League sides are in action again this midweek and one of the standout games is Manchester United hosting Spurs on Wednesday.

Spurs head into the game full of confidence with another league win last weekend when seeing off Everton 2-0, while United were held to a 0-0 draw with Newcastle.

At the start of this round of games, Spurs are on 23 points and Man Utd are on 16 points.

The match betting suggests a tight game, but with home advantage United are the favourites at 2.37, with the draw 3.40 and Spurs at 3.00.

Last season’s repeat fixture was a cracking 3-2 win for United and the Red Devils took 6 points off Spurs last term in the league – a repeat of this score is on offer at 26.00.

It’s been a clash that’s generally produced goals though, with 5 of the last 6 meetings seeing OVER 2.5 GOALS – this is on offer at 1.72, while both teams scored in 5 of the last 6 too – this can be backed at 1.57.

United have also won 3 of the last 9 repeat clashes 1-0 (11.00), while they’ve also won 50% of their last 8 home league games vs Spurs ‘to nil’.

In fact, United have lost only 4 of their 30 home Premier League games to Spurs!

In terms of the scoring markets, then no shocker to see Harry Kane, who has scored 9 league goals this season, at 5.50 (1st) or 2.50 (anytime), while for United Rashford has netted 4 goals in the last 8 vs Spurs and Ronaldo scored a hattrick in this game last season. Rashford is 9.50 (1st) or 4.00 (anytime), while Ronaldo is 5.00 (1st) or 2.30 (anytime).

Overall, it’s got the makings of a tight game and you could easily make a case for either team winning. Therefore, the OVER 2.5 GOALS option, which has paid out in 5 of the last 6 head-to-heads (83%) looks a good option with both teams having plenty of firepower up top.
