A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
Manchester United and West Ham face off at Old Trafford for the second time in four days but this time there has to be a winner. The teams drew 1-1 on Sunday, the third successive time they have shared the points at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils outshot their opponents by almost 3:1 and having eight shots on target compared with the visitors’ two but Darren Randolph was outstanding in the Hammers goal. It’s goals that win matches and United’s struggles in that department make the 7/2 for another draw very appealing, although there is certainly a case for Draw HT/United FT at 3/1.
United have drawn their last four home matches in the Premier League and interestingly both sides could not be separated at half-time either. The Draw HT/Draw FT odds are 11/2. Jose Mourinho is expected to field a strong side as he has done in this competition but Paul Pogba is suspended so Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Bastian Schweinsteiger are in the running.
A Look At West Ham’s Betting Odds
West Ham were second best against United on Sunday but still came away with a point thanks in part to their goalkeeper and an early goal from Diafra Sakho. West Ham have broken the deadlock on the last two occasions they have met at Old Trafford and can be backed at 5/2 to do so again, although Sakho is unlikely to play because of a hamstring injury.
The Hammers have lacked resilience this season and have given away more points from winning positions than any other Premier League club. Should the Iron score first, as they have done in their last three matches, we could be in for a siege at Old Trafford which would make the Lead-Lose run of play market attractive at 7/1.
United are warm favourites at 11/25 to win this game in 90 minutes but a victory for Slaven Bilic’s men isn’t out of the question. They are unbeaten in their last three games and are 13/2 to spring a shock win.
