Manchester United v Tottenham Betting Preview

Great matchup to kick off the new Premier League season with as Manchester United v Tottenham is the curtain raiser on Saturday lunch time. It could be a cracker because you can be sure that Louis van Gaal will have his new-look side fired up to try and impress and bank a positive three points to open the season with.

The Red Devils have made some huge additions to their squad over the summer, bringing in the likes of Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Memphis Depay. There are some savvy signings in there which will allow Van Gaal to naturally play his favoured 4-3-3 formation with players that he can trust to pull off the tasks. They are likely to be a whole lot stronger and more well-rounded than last season and are 6/1 at online betting site Coral to win the Premier League title.

Recent league clashes between Manchester United and Tottenham have actually landed in favour of the London club. Spurs currently hold a W2 D3 L1 record in the last six Premier League meetings with the Red Devils and they have won two of their last three at Old Trafford as well. They did suffer a heavy 3-0 defeat there in March though, but that does remain their only defeat in their last six against them. However, Tottenham failed to score in both league matches against United last season.

So with United potentially getting stronger, as well as Tottenham having made moves to strengthen their defence it could be worth considering the no option on Both Teams To Score for a price of even money at Coral. There is also the option in backing the game to go under 2.5 goals for a price of even money as well, and three of the last six have done so.

Tottenham have not been anywhere near as active as the Red Devils have in the summer transfer market (at least in-coming) but they have made smart moves in trying to fill the holes in their leaky defence by bringing in Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld. They will likely have to go shopping to find some support for Harry Kane up front if they want to defy the 6/1 odds on them banking a top-four finish next season.

Manchester United aren’t messing around in the summer transfer market. With Louis van Gaal hitting his sophomore season with the Old Trafford club, he has been ramping up their potential title challenge with singings. After bringing in in Memphis Depay and likely to add Torino Defender Matteo Darmian, the Red Devils have gone big to bring over Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich.

That is the highest-profile move of any club this summer and the German international is set for his medical with the Red Devils. Bayern tried to keep him but were happy to honour his wishes of looking for a new challenge after seventeen years with the Bundesliga club. The 30-year old’s arrival at Old Trafford has seen Paddy Power trim United down to 4/1 for the Premier League title.

However, punters can still hit up Coral for fantastic 6/1 odds on Van Gaal bringing the league title to Old Trafford next season. Online betting site Betfred has already priced up a market option of Schweinsteiger to score at least five Premier League next season, 8/11 to get four or less. They have also made him a 20/1 quote to win the PFA Player of the Year.

After a trying season with Manchester United under Louis van Gaal, striker Robin van Persie looks to be on the brink of a move to Turkey. Online betting site Skybet suspended betting on Van Persie making a move to Fenerbahce on Sunday, the striker having been backed heavily at ridiculously short odds of 1/10 that the move was going to be made to the Turkish club. This was in reaction to reports in The Guardian that the Dutchman had already agreed a four year contract.

Van Persie’s agent Kees Vos has been in Istanbul for two days, adding fuel to the fire that he is negotiating a deal. Van Persie is set to learn his fate at Manchester United next week when he sits down with the club, but is a move to Fenerbahce imminent. It was suggested by The Guardian that the two clubs only had left the issue of settling on a fee for the player.

Sky Bet’s Chris Spicer said: “We already held Fenerbahce as clear favourites to sign Van Persie but recent media reports seem to have sparked more intense interest, with the one-sided nature of the money forcing us to pull the market.

“Van Persie has been odds-on to leave Manchester United since the transfer window re-opened and it now looks like his destination has been settled.”

Morgan Schneiderlin turned up for the first day of training with Southampton, even though it is rumoured that he will be a Manchester United player very soon. The speculation and betting on his move to Old Trafford grew so much on Monday, that online betting site Sky Bet had to suspend betting on the transfer.

Schneiderlin, who produced an impressive season for the Saints last term, was being hunted by Arsenal, but they seem to have dropped interest in the Frenchman. The links of Schneiderlin to Old Trafford are that Louis van Gaal has apparently agreed on a £24million fee to capture him and the deal will be done on Wednesday.

Sky Bet wrote: ‘We have suspended betting on Morgan Schneiderlin joining Manchester United after laying significant business as short as 1/12 on the Southampton player signing for the Old Trafford club.’

The 25-year-old would be United’s second signing of the transfer window, after Memphis Depay was confirmed in May.

Sergio Ramos is a 5/6 quote to join Manchester United as well as United have reportedly fired off a £28.6m bid for the Real Madrid defender. The rumours here are that Ramos had told the Spanish giants that he want to move to Old Trafford, despite having two years left on his contract at the Bernabeu.

Premier League Betting

The fixture list for the 2015/16 Premier League was announced on Tuesday and immediately there was some appeal in 11/2 shots Manchester United, who will be more than delighted with the run in that they have at the end of the season. Louis van Gaal’s men could be in with a good shout of snatching the title if they are in the picture down the final stretch, as there is a clutch of winnable matches waiting for them.

United’s last five games next season are against Aston Villa, West Ham, Leicester City, Norwich and Bournemouth. So their 11/2 quote at Ladbrokes to win the Premier League crown will certainly have even more appeal when punters look at that. But, of course, things do get balanced out a bit because they have a tough October where they face Arsenal, Everton and Manchester City in consecutive games.

Chelsea holds favouritism at the ahead of the market with a 6/5 Ladbrokes quote. The Blues open at home against Swansea but then face their first big match of the season when they travel to Manchester City on August 15th, their second fixture of the season. Chelsea face Bournemouth, Sunderland and Leicester in their final five fixtures, the other two in that sequence behind home fixtures against Spurs and Man City.

The Chelsea Game aside, Man City look to have a comfortable start to the season, but they will turn around at the end and have to face Chelsea and Arsenal in their last five games and the Citizens are running as 5/2 second favourites to win next season’s title. As for Liverpool, they are running out at 28/1 to get their hands on the domestic price.

Brendan Rodgers faces a tough sequence of opening away fixtures, kicking off with a trip to face Stoke at the Britannia, where they were humiliated 6-1 on the final day of last season. Their next away game then sees them go to Arsenal, which in turn is followed by a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United.

Next season’s newcomers Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich will be relatively happy with the respective fixtures which they have to kick the season off with. Bournemouth takes on Aston Villa at home, while Watford make a trip to Everton who are generally slow out of the blocks while Norwich will entertain Crystal Palace at Carrow Road. Ladbrokes are offering odds of 33/1 that all three win their opening fixtures.

Some other Premier League enhanced odds specials running at Ladbrokes at the moment are Bournemouth to avoid relegation at even money (up from 8/11), Watford to avoid relegation at 5/4 (up from evens) and Stoke to land a top ten finish which is also now a price of 5/4 (up from even money). That’s it, folks, Premier League 2015/16 betting starts here.

Football News

Manchester United completed their deal for Dutch international Memphis Depay on Friday. The forward comes in from PSV for a chunky £31m transfer fee as United look to bolster their attacking ranks for an assault on the Premier League and Champions League next season.

There are now rumours floating around that the Red Devils are sniffing out a potential deal for Tottenham’s Harry Kane to put in their attacking ranks as well. Kane netted 31 goals in all competitions last season for Spurs and netted on his full England international as well. However, despite all the rumours, Kane is 1/4 with Coral to still be at White Hart Lane next season, and 11/4 to have left Spurs.

United are 5/2 with Coral to be Kane’s next club, and there has been some interest with punters nibbling at the potential deal, because online betting site Paddy Power trimmed the Red Devils in from 2/1 to 6/4 to snap up Kane. Manchester United are 5/1 to win next season’s Premier League and a long 20/1 quote to the UEFA Champions League.

Arsenal FA CUP

Well it was so comfortable in the end for Arsene Wenger as he guided Arsenal to their record 12th FA Cup title. The Gunners put on a great show to blow away the challenge of Aston Villa, banking themselves an easy 4-0 win over the Midlands outfit.

It took them until the 40th minute to find the breakthrough, Theo Walcott opening the rout. Walcott had been a 15/2 quote in the first goalscorer market for the FA Cup Final. Alexis Sanchez, Per Mertesacker and then deep into stoppage time, Olivier Giroud popped up with a fourth. So a successful FA Cup defence for the Gunners.

Can they make it three in a row next season?

Arsenal are running as 7/1 third favourites in 2015/16 FA Cup betting, putting them in as joint third favourites alongside Manchester United. Chelsea are the 5/1 favourites for FA Cup success, with online betting site Sky Bet, followed by Manchester City at a 6/1 quote.

It is a pretty tough feat to pull off three FA Cup wins in a row, the last team to do it was Blackburn back in the 1880’s.

Hull v Manchester United Betting Preview

It’s do or die for Hull City against Manchester United at the KC Stadium on Sunday. Unfortunately, their record against United suggests that it will most likely be the latter. But United have only won one of their last five games, so is there a window for a big rally from Steve Bruce’s men to get the three points that they need to stay up? Even then their survival would still depend on Newcastle not beating West Ham.

There is up to a free £200 bet for new customers to enjoy, and throw in some great 0-0 bore draw insurance, a partial cash-out feature and brilliant live in play betting, you have one of the best bookies around.

Hull v Manchester United Betting Tips

This is probably the game that most people will be focusing on during Sunday’s final action. This is Hull’s last chance to maintain their Premier League status. It’s not all in their own hands though, as they have to win and hope Newcastle don’t beat the Hammers. Their only advantages are that they are at home and United are out of wining form. Still, they are odds on favourites to take the drop and not surprising as they have lost their last thirteen games in a row against United in all competitions. That includes their 3-0 reverse at Old Trafford this season.

In six of their previous seven Premier League games against United, Hull have shipped at least three goals. This one is a quote of even money to go over 2.5 goals with online bookmaker Bet365. The Tigers are on a three match losing streak,  and have won just one of their last six at the KC Stadium. That win was a 1-0 triumph over Liverpool and that is the kind of performance which they need to replicate. However, the Tigers have managed just the one goal in their last three and have only posted five wins in front of their home support all season. It doesn’t bode well for them.

Hull v Manchester United

But then, Manchester United are fumbling along to the end of the season, having won only one of their last five Premier League games. That win did come in their last away game though, a 2-1 victory at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace. United have been hit and miss on the road, winning three and losing three of their last six away from Old Trafford. Since Wayne Rooney scored against Aston Villa on April 4th, United have gone six matches without one of their recognised strikers bagging a goal. Rooney is 5/4 in the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market and they do, after all, have the big head to head form over the Tigers. They may have too much for Hull to be able to survive.

Hull v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man Utd 6/5, Hull 11/5, Draw 13/5

Hull v Manchester United Predictions

Frankly it is tough to see Hull picking up the win that they need to stand a chance of survival. United have fallen foul of some poor form lately, but they should be good enough to take a win against a Tigers side who have lost their last two home games. Shoot for the away win to relegate Hull.

Manchester United v Arsenal Betting Preview

Still plenty to play for here in the battle for a top three finish. United will be eyeing up a massive three points which would see them jump above the Gunners into third place. Arsenal would still have a game in hand, but at least it would put pressure back on the north London club. This will be the third meeting between the two this season, with the previous two both having been won 2-1 by the away side (EPL and FA Cup). What will go down at Old Trafford?

Manchester United v Arsenal Betting Tips

The Red Devils snapped their three match losing streak in the top flight with a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace last weekend. The goals in that game for them also saw them end their three match streak without finding the back of the net. However, it still has to be noted that none of their recognised strikers have netted in the last month of league action. Wayne Rooney who picked up first half knock against Palace, is expected to be back. He has form against the Gunners having scored six goals in his last seven games against them at Old Trafford. Rooney has only tallied more against Villa and Newcastle in the PRemier League than he has against Arsenal. Rooney is trading at a price of 8/5 in the Paddy power anytime goalscorer market.

Even though they haven’t always been that convincing, the Red Devils have a good home record for the season, having recorded W14 D1 L3 numbers. That’s pretty strong and they have only failed to score in two of their home fixtures in this season’s top flight. Their stats in the mini-league involving the top six actually make them look even more appealing as they have recorded a W5 D2 L2 record against other in the top six this term. United have lost just one of their last eleven matches at home in all competitions against Arsenal, since Arsenal’s last league win there back in 2006. The loss in that sequence was United’s home defeat in this season’s FA Cup against the Gunners when Angel Di Maria was sent off. United are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games (home and away) against the Gunners.

The Gunners were in some brilliant form, putting together a ten match unbeaten streak of nine wins and a draw. However, their unbeaten streak came to an end last weekend when they were struck down late at the Emirates by Swansea. So now Wenger has to get his troops going again, and that was the second time in their last three league games that Arsenal failed to score. Arsenal have won just three out of their last 14 away games against the others in the Premier League big six, and a massive tally of nine of those 14 have been losses for the Gunners. No surprise why the league title keeps evading them then.

During that sequence of fourteen away games against the Big Six, the three away wins that Arsenal did take were on the only occasions that they managed to keep a clean sheet. Turn that around and you see that they have lost 82% of their last 14 away games against the Big Six when conceding in the game. Shows how valuable a clean sheet is going to be for them. The Gunners have won their last five away games in the top flight but only one of those wins were with a clean sheet. In the anytime goalscorer market, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud are both 7/4 quotes to back.

Manchester United v Arsenal Betting Odds

Manchester United 6/4, Arsenal 19/10, Draw 9/4

Manchester United v Arsenal Predictions

The history of Arsenal in big clashes like this on the road isn’t great and with them having their confidence destroyed last week against Swansea, it could be a good time to swing with the home side here. United do have the history in the fixture to be backed to take the three points. Expect the game to go over 2.5 and back Louis van Gaal’s tactical adaptability in big games like this to pick up the three points.

Manchester United v West Brom Betting Preview

A game where Manchester United will be looking to get themselves back on track. After suffering back to back miseries on the road, they will be happy you would think, to get back to Old Trafford, where their form is pretty solid. The Baggies haven’t found the Theatre of Dreams to be a happy hunting ground recently, although they did spring a surprise in this corresponding fixture from last season.

The goals have dried up for United and West Brom aren’t a powerhouse going forward. Therefore there could be some value in taking Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance on the game. The bookmaker will refund lost stakes as a free bet from losing pre-match correct score, scorecast and half time/full time bets. New customers registering an account with Bet365 can also get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus.

Manchester United v West Brom Betting Tips

United have to put some improved work in if they are going to finish second this season. They head into the weekend down in fourth now, trailing Man City and Arsenal by a couple of points. Their drop has been because of back to back away defeats in the top flight, so they will be happy to get back to Old Trafford. Their home form is immense having won their last six on the bounce at Old Trafford. Their defeats at Chelsea and Everton recently weren’t total shocks given how tactically inept they have largely looked on the road this season. But seeing United fail to score in back to back games is a surprise. The last time that they failed to score in three consecutive games was back in August 2007. You would back them to net on the weekend. Wayne Rooney would be your man in the goalscorer markets, and he is 5/6 quote in the anytime goalscorer market.

Rooney has scored in each of his last six Barclays Premier League starts against West Brom (seven goals total) and he has netted 15 in his last 16 Premier League games at Old Trafford. The United defence has shipped a goal in each of their last five games in the top flight, so is that enough to push for even money value on both teams to score at online betting site Bet365? By and large United have been more than comfortable in Premier League fixtures against the Baggies and they have kept ten clean sheets in their last 13 at home against them. They did slip up at home in last season’s corresponding fixture, going down 2-1, but that is just a little blip in their overall form against the Baggies.

Uncharacteristically for a Tony Pulis side, the Baggies shipped ten goals in a string of three defeats on the bounce. However, they have managed to arrest that form as they took a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace last weekend, and then looked more than comfortable in their 0-0 home draw against Liverpool in the week. Half of West Brom’s sixteen away games this season have seen the Baggies drawing at half time in them. The win at Selhurst Park last weekend also snapped a ten match winless streak on the road for West Brom. Their clean sheets against Palace and Liverpool suggests that they are back to their usual selves, and could push the score under 2.5 goals in this one. Saido Berahino scored the winner at Old Trafford last season and netted again in the 2-2 draw with the Red Devils at the Hawthorns earlier in the season. He can be backed at a 3/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market.

Manchester United v West Brom Betting Odds

Manchester United 4/11, Draw 4/1, west Brom 8/1

Manchester United v West Brom Predictions

You have to consider that at the end of the day the Baggies have won just one of their last 21 league matches against Manchester United (W1 D4 L16). However, they could dig in and be value for a draw at half time, especially with United looking a bit off the boil up front. The result should go in favour of United at the end of the day given their strong home form, but they will be made to work hard for it.
