Premier League betting – Man Utd vs Spurs
Man Utd vs Spurs betting preview
League Position: 3rd Form:DWDDDW
Manchester United recovered from a series of three straight draws and the saga surrounding Wayne Rooney last weekend to record their first away win of the season at Stoke and reaffirm their position of title contenders. Mainly thanks to two poachers efforts from summer signing Javier Hernandez, who is joint favorite to open the scoring against Tottenham and best priced at 9/2 on skyBet after netting 4 times in 6 games for United this season. After what has been a stuttering start for United, having already dropped more points from winning positions, than they did in the whole of last season. Despite Wayne Rooney still being sidelined with injury, the Red Devils go into the home tie odds on favorites. Sir Alex Ferguson should also still be without Ryan Giggs, Antonio Valencia, Michael Owen and Jonny Evans for the visit of Harry Redknapp’s men.
League Position: 5th Form:DWLWWD
Tottenham’s stuttering start to the season continued last weekend when they failed to beat Everton at home after two good wins against Fulham and Aston Villa. In what has been a season of transition for Harry Redknapp as he looks to strike a balance between doing well domestically and in Europe. Welsh winger Gareth Bale has been much lauded this season especially after a tremendous hat trick against Inter Milan, and the youngster is nicely priced at 9/2 on skybet to score at any time. Unfortunately for Tottenham they will make the trip without several key players and long-term absentees Ledley King, Michael Dawson and Jermain Defoe which will hinder their chances of an upset.

Manchester United are firm favorites for this tie having won all seven of the previous meetings in the league and cup at Old Trafford and are reflected with best odds of 8/13 at bet365. Especially with the emergence of Javier Hernandez, who scored his 4th goal of the season in the Carling Cup midweek against Wolves. However a price of 5/1 for Spurs to get the win on skybet and BlueSq looks very good considering West Brom earned a 2-2 draw two weeks ago. While Spurs current top league goal scorer Rafael Van Der Vaart is also nicely priced at 10/1 on bet365 to open the scoring.
