Man Utd v Spurs – Premier League Betting Guide: 27th Aug 2018

 

Monday 27th August 2018

    Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur 20:00

A real treat for Premier League fans on Monday night as heavyweights Manchester United welcome Tottenham to Old Trafford, in a game that will be a pressure one for the United boss – Jose Mourhino.

The Red Devils lost their last game away at Brighton and another defeat here will certainly pile on the early season pressure on their manager. Spurs, on the other hand, are one of the six sides to make a perfect start from their opening two games (6 points) so will fancy their chances here against an in-and-out United.

The match betting suggests a tight game too with United just edging it at 2.50, with the Draw 3.25 and Spurs on offer at 2.80.

Last season’s repeat fixture saw United win 1-0 though and if you fancy that score again here you’ll be rewarded at 9.00. In fact, United have actually won the last three repeat fixtures 1-0 so this is certainly a scoreline to have in your sights.

With the last four league clashes at Old Trafford also seeing United ‘win to nil’ then it’s clearly been a hard place for Spurs to score at – they last found the back of the net in the Premier League at OT in 2014!

United have also only lost at home to Spurs twice in the Premier League (26 games) so despite their ropey form of late their fans will know they don’t often lost to the North London side at home.
The scoring markets have Harry Kane on offer at 4.50 (1st), or 2.10 (anytime), while Lukaku is the shortest of the United players at 5.50 (1st) or 2.50 (anytime).

It’s generally a tight game though with 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads going UNDER 2.5 GOALS – this can be backed at 1.75, but the call here is for both teams NOT to score. This bet has paid out in 7 of the last 8 head-to-heads so the 1.95 on offer on this stat being upheld looks fair value with an 88% strike-rate in recent years.

 

BEST BET:  BOTH TEAMS ‘NOT’ TO SCORE
