Rooney-Van Persie (Manchester United)

Manchester United v Inter Milan Betting Preview

It’s more Italian opposition for Mmanchester United at the International Champions Cup. After holding off Roma for a 3-2 win in their opener, the Red Devils turn their attention to Inter Milan, who edged out Real Madrid in a penalty shoot out in their group opener. So a top of the group clash in the race for top spot. Who will take control?

Manchester United v Inter Milan Betting Tips

Well, after a flurry of three goals scored in the first half against Roma, Manchester United failed to any of the basics correctly in the second half, and Roma almost fought back for a point. Louis van Gaal’s men got out with a 3-2 win, but the new boss was heavily critical of his side, pointing fingers at his playmakers Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Shinji Kagawa for producing poor passing displays.

Mata did score in the game, while Wayne Rooney netted a brace in the match though, and the England man is an 8/11 shot in the anytime goalscorer market against Inter.

The win over Roma followed up a 7-0 victory in a friendly against LA Galaxy, so at least it has been a positive start in terms of results for Van Gaal. But he is going to need to get his players sharper, as really only Wayne Rooney was the bright spark of the team.

The Red Devils have good history against Inter Milan as they are unbeaten in four previous competitive matches against the Italians. United have taken two wins and two draws from those four meetings and so should be backable enough to shoot for the win in this one. Would expect the game to go over 2.5 goals again, because United still look weak at the back.

Inter Milan dug in against Real Madrid in their opening group match and got their rewards. They tied up the game from a spot kick following Gareth Bale’s opener for Madrid, twenty minutes from time. That’s the way it finished, and Inter edged it in a shootout. Still, there was nothing really there from the Italians for Manchester United to really worry about, as they didn’t raise a big threat in the game against what was largely a Real Madrid B side. Their best routes to goal are going to be from set pieces against United, but other than that, a draw looks about the best option that they could achieve out of 90 minutes.

Manchester United v Inter Milan Predictions

Teams are still looking for some pre-season sharpness and it is hot out on the US, which is probably why United laboured in their win. Still, they have Rooney who looks sharp and there’s a match winner for you. Inter Milan are lacking one, so stick with the Red Devils at decent value to edge the victory at Bet Victor.

Vidal (Chile)

Well, one of the big targets of the summer for Manchester United’s new boss Louis van Gaal was apparently Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal. There had been links running since the World Cup and with the Old Trafford outfit in need of an overhaul, with Van Gaal stating that his squad was unbalanced, then Vidal looked a good fit. However, the longer the summer has drawn on, the less likely the Juventus man looks to be heading to Old Trafford, pretty much stating that the Red Devils are a no-go for him.

Online betting site Betfair were quick to slash the odds of Vidal from 20/1 to 4/1 to make a move to Liverpool though, after rumours surfaced on Friday. The Reds are eyeing up a marquee signing and the box to box, powerful Chilean midfielder would fit the bill nicely for them. Although they have good central midfield options already, Vidal would enhance what they already have, as he is a player with a high work rate in both defence and attack and would certainly steel up the heart of the Liverpool team.

There is the factor that they would also stop rivals Manchester United getting a star man as well. Bayern Munich are 12/1 shots to be the next club for the current Juventus man, and that may be a bit of a generous price considering that they shipped out Toni Kroos to Real Madrid recently and could well be looking for a replacement. They would have the pull to lure Vidal from under both Liverpool and Manchester United’s noses.

Manchester United v Roma Betting Preview

Well the Red Devils have a pretty busy time of things as they move towards the new Premier League season under Louis van Gaal. The new boss has already been complaining about the pre-season schedule as he pits his wits in Group A of the International Champions Cup against Real Madrid, Inter Milan and AS Roma.

Manchester United v Roma Betting Tips

Should be an interesting start to life for Van Gaal at Old Trafford as the biggest pre-season tournament in the world is an attractive lure. United take on Real Madrid, Inter and AS Roma in Group A and if they top the round robin pool, they will play the winner of Group B in the Championship match. Group B has Liverpool, Man City, Olympiakos and AC Milan in it. If this fixture was a clash in last season’s Champions League, United would have probably been underdogs. But with a new man in charge, some new signings coming in, they are 6/5 favourites at Paddy Power to win this match.

Of course this is pre-season and teams aren’t going to be at full strength, and tactics are going to be tested and ironed out, so it’s not going to be a full-blooded affair, but it should be competitive. This is the only taste of European opposition that United are going to get this season, having failed to qualify for either the Champions League or Europa League. United have played Roma six times before and they hold a strong head to head lead of 4-1 with the one draw. United have won the last two matches against the Italians, which were back in the 2008 Champions League.

Roma look a strong outfit, they finished second behind runaway leaders Juventus in Serie A last season, and are second favourites for the Scudetto again this term. Their top options in the anytime goalscorer market is francesco Totti at 2/1, along with Mattia Destro. United’s Wayne Rooney is 6/5 favourite to get on the scoresheet in the match, followed by Javier Hernandez at 6/4 and Danny Welbeck at 2/1. There should be goals in this one and worth looking over 2.5 goals for it. It’s still pre-season, defences aren’t going to be that sharp.

Early season and these two should be pretty evenly matched. Expect a good open game to come here and the goals to flow. Good value on the toss of a coin to pick a winner here, so stick to the match outrights and take the big value of 2/1 on the Italians.

23rd July 2014 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Football Betting


Despite punters looking towards Manchester United landing the Premier League title this year, bookmakers have had a very different point of view. New boss Louis van Gaal seems to be carrying a lot of swagger and confidence into his early Old Trafford days. However, online betting site Ladbrokes have 8/15 that Van Gaal will finish his first season in England empty handed.

That was a price which had drifted from 1/2 on Thursday morning. It is highly likely though that the Dutchman is going to be lasting a lot longer than David Moyes did in the job and Van Gaal is 1/20 to outlast the Scotsman in the Old Trafford hot seat. Moyes lasted just the ten months, so not exactly a hard record to break, hence the short odds. With a price of 11/2 running on Manchester United to win the Premier League, they are going to make a tempting proposition for punters and they look for a season of revival. Without the distractions of European football, it could enhance their Premier League challenge.

The Red Devils are 4/7 to land in the top four at the end of the season and make their way back to Champions League football. The Red Devils have been priced up at 3/1 to win their first three games of the season under Van Gaal, while his 5/1 to guide them to four straight wins out of the blocks, 6/1 to win their first five and 10/1 to win their opening six.

Manchester United open against Swansea, then face Sunderland, Burnley, QPR, Leicester, West Ham and Everton in their opening six matches. So a pretty easy introduction to Premier League life for Van Gaal, having to play all three newly promoted clubs. The Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup treble is up at a price of 250/1.

Van Gaal said in his first Old Trafford press confidence: “I want to look at the players here at present. I know the players but I have not trained and coached them. It will take three or four weeks to see what they can do before we buy other players.”

That hasn’t stopped Ladbrokes taking bets betting on how many of Anderson, Javier Hernandez, Wilfried Zaha, Nani, Tom Cleverley, Chris Smalling and Bebe leave during the transfer window, with five their 15-8 favourite.

17th July 2014 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Bookmaker News


Louis van Gaal has been confirmed as new Manchester United boss, so what do the bookmakers think of his installation at Old Trafford? Online betting site Skybet have priced up Van Gaal at 11/8 to guide United to a piece of silverware in his first season in charge at the club.

There is a big summer ahead of course for Manchester United, who have a big transfer purse and need to badly overhaul their squad. While the appointment of Van Gaal has been announced, the Dutchman won’t take over until after the World Cup, where he is coaching Holland. So don’t expect the United spending spree to start until after that.

They look to be in the hunt for Seamus Coleman, Toni Kroos and Luke Shaw during the summer, all favourites to move to Old Trafford with SkyBet.

With David Moyes not lasting a full season in charge in his attempt to follow in the footsteps of Sir Alex Ferguson, it is expected that the experienced Dutchman is going to be given more time than his predecessor, as Sky Bet are offering long odds of 3/1 that he won’t be in charge at the end of next season.

Manchester United are running at 11/2 to win the 2014/15 Premier League Title, and are up at 4/7 to land a top four finish which would see them back in the Champions League.

Paul Wiggins, Sky Bet’s Head of Football, said: “We’ve cut United’s title odds next season from as long as 7/1 during the end of Moyes’ reign to 11/2 when it became clear that van Gaal would be appointed, with the Dutchman odds-on for the post since shortly after we opened the market.

“Given van Gaal’s impressive CV, we’d have probably only shortened United’s outright odds further if Jose Mourinho or Pep Guardiola had been appointed.”

Manchester United v Hull Betting Preview
Well the Ryan Giggs revival didn’t last long at Old Trafford, as the Red Devils slumped to a 1-0 defeat against the relegation-threatened Sunderland On the weekend. Quite where a side with lack of fight and creativity goes from there is a mystery. Hull though aren’t in the kind of form to be backed heavily in an away game though.

Manchester United v Hull Betting Tips:
It was another disappointing home performance for the Red Devils on the weekend, their seventh home defeat of the season. Manchester United have now won just two of their last six home matches in the top flight, losing three of them. Tuesday will see them play their final home match of the season and even after the weekend’s poor performance, they are still odds on favourites here. Manchester United have won their last six league matches against Hull, including all five previous times that they have come together in the Premier League. You would expect them to extend that. Wayne Rooney, who is trading as 4/7 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, has scored six goals in four Premier League appearances against the Tigers. Four of those did come in the one match back in January of 2010 though. That was the only time that Rooney has scored more than three goals in a Premier League match.

Their tally of home defeats is the most they have suffered  in the top tier of English football since the 1973/74 season. They have lost more home games than Norwich and West Brom. Can they at least go out on a high? In their last six Premier League games, the Red Devils have either scored four goals in a game or have failed to score and have lost (W3 L3). That may prompt you to have a shot at 4-0 Correct Score, which looks a long shot after their performance on the weekend, frankly. However, the Red Devils did win this one 4-0 in last season’s corresponding fixture and they have scored four or more in each of their last three home games against the Tigers, in all competitions. You would expect them to come up with some kind of decent home send off and going over 2.5 goals is up at 8/15 with Bet365. They do have the form going against the Tigers to produce a win.

Hull have only managed to pick up one win in their last seven Premier League games now, losing four of those. So the FA Cup finalists are spluttering towards the end of the season. They aren’t going to get relegated, but will be a bit disappointed with their finish. Hull have only managed to win just three away games all season, and they have picked up just the one point in their last four. A heavy loss at Aston Villa on the weekend, won’t send backers their way for a trip to Old Trafford. The Tigers haven’t won any of their last ten league matches at Old Trafford, and have in fact, lost nine of those. They have also never managed to keep a clean sheet in any of those ten, conceding thirty goals in that sequence. So again, at least the stats would point to a big home win. Further still, Hull have only kept two clean sheets away from home all season, with only Fulham doing worse, with one.

Given United’s track record against Hull, you should be jumping on them to get a good win on the board? Will they? A 1-0 home success would probably be cause to celebrate at this point. Don’t see United losing, and would back them to win to nil for extra value at 6/4.

Kagawa - Rooney (Manchester United)

Manchester United v Sunderland Betting Preview
So the Red Devils will likely do no better than sixth place this season, but at least some smiles were put back on their faces after a 4-0 rout of Norwich last week with Ryan Giggs in charge for the first time. Sunderland start the weekend outside of the drop zone, can they stay there?

Manchester United v Sunderland Betting Tips:
After showing some much better optimism and nature last week, Ryan Giggs steered the Red Devils to a comfortable win at Old Trafford over Norwich. They should do the same again this week, as Manchester United have won 10 and lost none of their last 12 Premier League home games against the Black Cats. Yes, United have been very poor at home this season, and yes, they only beat Norwich last week, however they look confident enough to finish the season with a bit of a swagger. United have won only two of their last five league games at Old Trafford, but they have won their last two on the bounce, scoring four goals in each of them. It will probably therefore, be worth going over 2.5 goals for this one for a price of 1/2 with Bet365.

Wayne Rooney is going to be a natural mark in the anytime goalscorer market, as he has netted six goals in his last five Premier League appearances, those six goals being returned in three braces. Rooney is trading at a price of 1/2 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Juan Mata looking  a great option at 5/4 after a brace last week, helped by being used in his correct position. Overall, United’s home record this season is W8 D3 L6 but they aren’t facing a defence which is too difficult to break down. Sunderland almost took a win in the reverse fixture this season, United being rescued by a great double from Adnan Januzaj on his first ever Premier League start. The goals have started to flow a little easier against lower opposition lately for United, while their struggles against the top sides will quickly be forgotten, they can end the season with a flourish.

Sunderland have rolled up their socks lately and have given themselves a huge shot at survival after going three games unbeaten, winning their last two. That, combined with the demise of Norwich, has seen the Black Cats pull out of the relegation zone. Points don’t look to be immediately on the board for them in this one, so they are not out of the woods yet at all, as with a loss, they could be back at the bottom of the pile again if Norwich, Fulham and Cardiff all win their games (as unlikely as that is). Sunderland are without a win in 23 league games against the Red Devils overall, having taken just five points (D5 L18) in that sequence. But their recent upturn in form, which saw them win their last two after going nine without a win, and having scored in all but one of their last 10 away games, should at least give them a shot at a gritty point. Connor Wickham’s on a three match scoring streak (5 goals) and is a 3/1 shot in the anytime goalscorer market.

Don’t see anything other than a routine win in this one for the home side. They had some new life breathed into them last week and they have the scoring power to do damage to the Black Cats. May just be tempted to bag a Both Teams To Score wager at 4/5, because Sunderland have to show some fight.

Louis Van Gaal (Holland)

Is David Moyes on the verge of losing his job at Old Trafford? Bookmakers reacted quickly to rumours that the Scotsman was about to leave his post, by slapping a price of 5/1 on Louis van Gaal to become the next Manchester United manager. With rumours leaking that the Glazer family had lost faith with Moyes after a poor 2-0 defeat at Everton, in which they were never really in the game against a dynamic Toffees side, bookmakers were keen to take action.

While the club has remained silent in an official capacity about the position of Moyes, the loss at Everton, Moyes’s former club and perhaps the manner of the defeat, would not have done his job security any favours at all. Bookmakers put two and two together on Monday and were leaning towards Van Gaal heading to Old Trafford, despite the Dutchman having been linked heavily with a move to Tottenham.

Van Gaal has his appeal. He is a vastly experienced manager and he will be available in the summer after he finishes his stint with Holland at the 2014 World Cup. The Dutchman is apparently very keen on making a move to England and the Premier League, and over the last twelve months he has been linked with Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs as well as United now. The Dutchman is still running at odds on favourite to move into White Hart Lane and replace Tim Sherwood.

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp remains the fans favourite to take over at the club, according to a poll ran by the Manchester Evening News website. Klopp has been favourite for a long time in the Next Manchester United manager market, but there are contrasting rumours about him leaving Germany. While some reports have him unhappy about having so many of his top players sold off, other sources say that he is pretty reluctant to leave the Bundesliga.

With no official word that Moyes will be out before the end of the season, if it does happen, then Ryan Giggs would be the one likely to step into the void, and the veteran is running at 6/1 to take over permanently at Old Trafford, while punters can take a shot at Alex Ferguson to come out of retirement and take up the reins again for 16/1.

Online betting site Paddy Power are already offering odds of 3/1 (slashed from 25/1) that Moyes’s next club will be Newcastle, followed by Celtic at a 6/1 shot.

Premier League Betting

Everton v Manchester United Betting Preview
Plenty at stake at Goodison Park on Sunday as Everton look to hustle Arsenal out of fourth place at the end of the season. They slipped up badly in the week though and now have to try and find a response against the Premier League’s best away side this season. Yes, that is United.

Everton v Manchester United Betting Odds at online bookmaker Paddy Power
Everton 7/5, Man Utd 19/10, Draw 12/5

Paddy Power have a Money Back Special running for your Everton v Man Utd betting. If Toffees striker Romelu Lukaku nets at anytime during the game, then the bookmaker will refund lost bets on the First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast single markets. Paddy Power also offer up to 100% win bonuses on 3-old or bigger ACCAs.

Everton v Manchester United Betting Tips:
The Toffees need a big performance here after slipping to a 3-2 defeat at Goodison against Crystal Palace in the week. That was a costly upset after winning their last seven top flight matches prior to that, a run which had taken them up into fourth. So now their mettle will be tested. They are favourites for the match and they managed a 1-0 win at Old Trafford earlier in the season. So the Toffees really need the three points here to keep pressuring Arsenal. It they do get a win then it will be the first time since the 1969-70 season that they have managed to do the double over the Red Devils. Some unusually slack defending cost them against Palace in the week, and that flew in the face of their home form for the season, having posted a W12 D3 L2 record, so they have been one of the better home sides this term. Everton have conceded under a goal per game at home this season and have scored at an average of two per game. That should indicate goals and over 2.5 goals looks a great option at 5/6 with Paddy Power.

Heading up the anytime goalscorer market is Romelu Lukaku, who has only played one home game in the top flight against Manchester United so far in the Premier League. It was a good one though, as he netted a hat trick for West Brom in that thrilling 5-5 draw on the final day of the 2012/13 season. Lukaku is trading at a price of 11/8 to net at anytime during the game, but Steven Naismith could be worth a look too at a price of 2/1. He always seems to be in the right place at the right time and is returning well. You can expect Everton to turn on the attacking power in this one. But United have something to play for here, as they are taking a shot at the Europa League next season. They are in a scrap with Spurs for sixth place and a Europa League spot (seventh place could actually do it if Arsenal finish fifth and win the FA Cup). The Red Devils head into the weekend three points behind Spurs but have a game in hand over the Lilywhites and a fantastic goal difference advantage.

Manchester United have struggled against Everton at Goodison recently though, having only won one of their last five visits there in the Premier League (D2 L2). So it’s not an easy game for them. They have only won three of their last eight league games against the Toffees too, and that has been a turnaround as they won 21 of the 26 meetings before that. Manchester United have been good on the road this season though, as no-one has picked up more away points than they have. They have also won their last four away games on the bounce, keeping clean sheets in their last five. So they have the form to pick up maximum points in this one against the odds. They have netted eleven goals in their last four outside of Old Trafford. Wayne Rooney is expected to be back fit to play, but he has only scored 4 goals in 15 Premier League appearances against his former club. They need a bit of fire from him.

This should be a highly entertaining affair and you wonder how much that home loss against Palace will have affected Everton. It could be a prime chance to bank on United’s away form continuing in this one and there have been signs of more spirit from the Red Devils and are a tempting 19/10 price to grab the win.

Football News

Louis van Gaal seems to be job hunting at the moment, and he has been all over the newspapers and internet following rumours that he has already been in talks at Old Trafford with Manchester United. Reportedly a Glazer family remember also weighed in on the rumour that the Dutchman had been in talks about taking over from David Moyes in the summer.

No-one is going to argue the case that United have suffered a fall from grace, somewhat expected in the post Sir Alex Ferguson era, but perhaps not to the magnitude of finishing the season empty hand. The poor season has also had ramifications going forward because the Red Devils are now at 40/1 to qualify for the Champions League next season too.

So missing out on UEFA’s top club competition could be costly, and it could well mean that their £150 million summer transfer fund doesn’t go quite as far as it perhaps should. So will it be current Holland boss Louis Van Gaal who has control of the purse strings in the summer? Is Moyes’ tenure there ready to come to an end in the summer?

Van Gaal is looking to step away from international management in the summer after Holland’s 2014 FIFA World Cup campaign.

But the story may not be as clear cut as all that, because there have been rumours circling around, linking him with other clubs. There have been links with Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal as well for the Dutchman, so it may just be a little confusing as to where he could be heading to.

Is there a clear picture of who exactly, is sounding out the Dutchman?

Van Gaal has his credentials, having won league titles with Barcelona and Bayern Munich during his managerial career, along with his many pieces of silverware from Ajax. He has had those couple of stints in charge of the Dutch national side as well, so is well travelled and has great experience.

Van Gaal is now up at 8/1 second favourite to be the next permanent manager at Old Trafford, with Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp still hanging around as 7/1 outright favorite. There has been no movement in the next Arsenal manager market, while Van Gaal, reported to be making a decision about the Spurs job in the next week, is 8/11 to take control of the Lilywhites.
