Tottenham v Man United betting preview
The big game on Sunday evening sees Tottenham host Man United at home in a big clash at the top of the table. Tottenham suffered a heavy defeat away at local rivals Arsenal last weekend, whilst Man United grabbed a late winner away at Norwich to claim 3 valuable points.
Spurs have had a great season so far, but their 5-2 defeat to Arsenal last time out all but ended their title hopes. They will be looking for a good win here though, to ensure they take a Champions League place come the end of the season. Spurs confidence will be dented after their collapse against Arsenal, and they will have to defend a lot better on Sunday. The home side are slight underdogs going into the game, but are still a fairly short price at 3.0 with William Hill. This gives an indication into how tight this game may be, and so betting on a draw with odds of 3.4 from Bet365, is looking a good pick. Spurs have been prolific in front of goal this season, and winger Gareth Bale is looking a great price at 4.33 with William Hill to score at any time during the game.
Man United are sitting nicely in second place in the Premier League, just 2 points behind the leaders Man City. Alex Ferguson is notorious for grinding out close wins at this stage of the season, so betting on a 2-1 away win should give a good return with odds of 10.0 from Ladbrokes. This looks a particularly good bet, as Man United’s away form is the best in the league so far, with an impressive 9 wins from 13 games. Wayne Rooney should also be fit for the trip down south, and the England player is looking a good bet at 6.0 with Paddy Power to open the scoring, after netting the 1st goal on 4 occasions so far this season. Both of these sides definitely have a goal in them, and so betting on both teams to score in the 1st half, looks promising with odds of 4.0 from Skybet.
