The big game of this weekend takes place on Sunday, when Manchester United host Chelsea in a huge top of the table clash. The Premier League odds have this one down as being a very tight game, and that is certainly something that I agree with, there isn’t much to choose between these teams. Despite being near the top of the table, both have had their problems in recent weeks, and Manchester United could lose 2nd spot with a loss here. Chelsea also have to watch behind them, they could lose 4th place should they lose the game, showing just how important it is for both teams.
The recent Premier League games have been a struggle for both of these clubs, and they have both lost two out of their last three games. Being out of form right now makes the game hard to predict, either team looks to be capable of winning the game, but no one is showing the right form recently.
With a lot at stake here when it comes to league positions, both teams are going to be battling hard, and the tightness of the betting odds available shows that both teams are in with a chance and the bookies are struggling to split them.
Manchester United Betting Odds
The Man Utd betting odds have them as favorites to win the game, they are best priced 23/20 with Bwin to do so. Many will be interested in that price, the Manchester United betting odds usually have them odds on to win when they are playing at home. However, the form they have shown recently is a worry, and they do sometimes play a little negatively, meaning a draw is a likely outcome in this game.
There will be many Manchester United betting tips around this weekend, but not from me, I don’t quite think they are playing well enough right now to beat Chelsea, even though they have home advantage.
Chelsea Betting Odds
The odds on Chelsea to win will appeal to a lot of people out there looking for value. They are priced up at 11/4 with Unibet, and when you consider that they are in 4th position right now and the squad of players they have, it is easy to see why many fancy them to win at this price. However, while those Chelsea odds are attractive, the way they are playing right now makes me question whether they are capable of going to Old Trafford and picking up a victory.
Chelsea may not lost this game, but I am not sure they have the ability to win the game, another factor that points towards the draw being a good bet.
Chelsea vs Manchester United Prediction
It is prediction time for the big game of the weekend. You will see many Manchester United betting tips out there for this game, but I am taking them on and backing the draw. This appears to be the most likely outcome based on how closely matched these two teams are, and how they are struggling to find their form right now, with losses in two of their last three games.
The draw is priced up at 7/3 with Betsson, and offer tremendous value in what looks sure to be a very close game between two very good teams. That is my Chelsea vs Manchester United prediction, and one that I think has a great chance of landing at a very nice price.
Both teams look capable of winning on their best form, but that is not something we have seen in recent weeks and there is no reason to believe that either will be at their best this weekend. With the game having added importance due to league positions, both will want to make sure they take at least something from the game, and avoid a defeat. With all these factors pointing towards the draw, that is the best place to place a bet, so the bet here is for a draw in the game, priced at 7/3 with Betsson. Go and open an account now!
