Man United v Wigan Community Shield Betting Odds, Preview and Predictions

Can Wigan pull off another Wembley shock?

Scharner - McManaman - Gomez (Wigan)

Man United v Wigan Community Shield Betting Preview  
This new football season will be ushered in when the Premier League champions and the FA Cup winners meet up at Wembley on Saturday, August 11th. This will be the first big competitive test for both sides ahead of their domestic and European campaigns. It will represent the first chance of silverware for new Red Devils boss David Moyes, while Wigan will be looking for some cheer after suffering relegation from the top flight last season.

Players are naturally going to be a little bit rusty this early into the season and therefore it could be worth looking at some 0-0 Bore Draw insurance from online betting site Bet365. If the game ends in a nil-nil draw after ninety minutes, then the bookie will refund lost stakes on the Correct Score, Scorecast and Half Time/Full Time markets. This applies to bets placed before kick off only. New customers registering an account can get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus, with Bet365 matching the value of your initial deposit on a new account.

Man United v Wigan Betting Tips:  
Clear advantage in the odds between the two sides, as the reigning Premier League title holders will be expected to walk off with the silverware. But no longer will Sir Alex Ferguson be leading them out at Wembley, as that honour and duty now falls on the shoulders of former Everton man David Moyes. Will he deliver upon the weight of expectation that is on his shoulders? It looks as if he does have a fairly comfortable opener to start things off with, given the fact that Wigan have only beaten the Red Devils once before in sixteen previous meetings. The big question will be whether or not Wayne Rooney will be playing for them, or will the England striker be elsewhere next season?

United are overwhelming favourites to open the season with a bang, and given the fact that they beat the Latics 4-0 in both Premier League meetings last term is reason enough to back them. In fact, in the last eight meetings between the two sides, Wigan have only gotten on the score sheet once, when they took their solitary win over the Red devils on a famous April night in 2012. In those last eight meetings though, the Latics have conceded 29 goals against United. There have been three 4-0 wins, and three 5-0 wins for United in the last eight meetings. It is a pretty comprehensive record. It may be worth taking a punt on Man United to win to nil at odds of 10/11 with Bet365.

It is probably worth looking Over 2.5 Goals for a price of 1/2 at Ladbrokes as well to try and get some small profit back. Wigan will have a new boss to guide them next season as well, as Owen Coyle takes the helm after Roberto Martinez heads off to Everton. The Latics will be in Europa League action next term, so they do have a lot to look forward too, as well as trying to win promotion back to the top flight. They are here on the back of their comfortable FA Cup final win over the favoured Man City, with Ben Watson’s last minute decisive strike giving them the silverware. If the Champions side does manage to shock again at Wembley, it will likely be by just the solitary goal again and are out at 12/1 to win by 1 goal.
