The Sunday afternoon kickoff is arguably the tie of the weekend, as Man United travel to White Hart Lane.
Man Utd are the favourites at a best price of 53/35 with Pinnacle, whereas Spurs can be backed at 2/1 with Paddy Power. The draw can be backed at a best price of 44/17, again with Pinnacle.
As befitting a game of this stature, the bookmakers are falling over themselves to offer promotions. BetVictor will refund the usual markets if a red card is shown, whereas Paddy Power will refund losing bets if RVP scores last. BetFred’s double delight / hat trick heaven is in play as well here.
This game sees two teams who are not used to losing come face to face. Man Utd have only lost once in 12, whereas Spurs have only lost once in their last 13. both teams are bang in form – Spurs have won nine games in the aforementioned 123game period, whereas Man Utd have won ten games in the same period.
I fancy Man Utd to get something out of this game, but it won’t be easy for them. Spurs have been ahead at some point in the vast majority of their games this season, and until recently, Man Utd had an annoying knack of going behind in games. Man Utd to come from behind and either draw or win is available at 15/4 with William Hill, and that represents very good value to me. I also expect the second half to see the most goals – Spurs score far more goals in the second half than the first, and Man Utd are generally prolific throughout! 15/13 on the second half having the most goals with Bet365 looks like a decent short odds bet to me.
In terms of who is going to score the goals, obviously RVP is going to score. But you can barely get evens on him scoring anytime, which is no sort of odds whatsoever. Staying with the idea that Spurs will take the lead in this game we recommend Gareth Bale to score first, at an overpriced 17/2 with William Hill.
