The Sunday lunchtime kickoff sees Man Utd travel to deepest darkest Wales to face Swansea, in a game much trickier than it sounds.
Man Utd are the obvious favourite at a best price of 5/7 with Pinnacle, whereas Swansea can be backed at 9/2 with Bet Victor. A draw, which Man Utd have only done once in 25 games this season, is available at 3/1, again with Bet Victor.
Man Utd travel to this game in absolutely imperious form. They have won their last five in the Premier League, including beating nearest rivals (both geographically and in the league…) Man City away from home – ending a period of two years unbeaten at home for city in the process – and they are currently six points clear at the top of the league. Swansea however are no pushovers themselves, and have cemented themselves as a very respectable mid table club. They have lost their last two in the league, but before that went on a six match unbeaten run in the league, and currently find themselves sitting 10th in the league – a fantastic achievement.
As good as Swansea have been so far this season, Man United should win this, and probably with something to spare. The 5/7 on the straight win offers a sizeable return for those looking to bet big, but there are other offers to be had for those on a more modest budget. Man United have only kept a single clean sheet in their last fifteen or so games, and have already conceded 24 goals in the league. Both teams to score AND Man Utd to win is available at 2/1 with Ladbrokes, and we like the look of that, especially with Swansea being strong at home. We also like the look of a correct score of 3-1 united, available at 12/1 with Coral – United should be strong enough to win, but they won’t run away with the game. Finally, Van Persie will look to finish the year on top of the Premier League goal-scoring charts. He’s score in his last four in the league, and should open the scoring here as well – he’s 15/4 with BetVictor to score first.
