Manchester United FA Cup Favourites to Beat Liverpool

Amazingly, Manchester United sit top of the Premier League despite the fact that they have negative goal difference at Old Trafford this season, with the Red Devils having suffered a heavy defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur before getting their act together this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had to contend with plenty of criticism directed towards himself and his team’s performances although they have slowly worked their way into the 2020/21 campaign and they now sit proudly at the top of the table as they turn their attention to competing against their arch-rivals in the FA Cup.

Who Are FA Cup Betting Favourites for United v Liverpool?

Manchester United are slightly shorter in the betting market to win Sunday’s FA Cup clash, with Solskjaer’s men having earned a goalless draw at Anfield last weekend and they will now look to get the better of opponents who suddenly seem short of squad depth considering that midfielders Fabinho and Jordan Henderson are having to occupy central defensive positions.

United are best betting odds of 13/8 at the time of writing and Solskjaer will be able to give players such as Juan Mata, Alex Telles, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani an opportunity against opponents who might just be prepared to write off this competition to focus on Premier League and Champions League commitments.

Liverpool can be backed at 17/10 on the FA Cup betting market as the bookmakers await the team news which will have a bearing on the bookmaker odds for this match. Much depends on whether Jurgen Klopp decides to select a strong first team for the clash.

You can get the draw at betting odds of around 13/5 and that would see the tie go into extra-time which is not a situation that either team want. Therefore, we might expect the match to be resolved within ninety minutes of play.

What Are the Best Betting Markets for this FA Cup Match?

The game at Anfield finished 0-0 last Sunday although this was a Premier League match and the bookie odds imply that a higher-scoring game could be on the cards considering this is a winner-takes-all affair.

It seems implausible that Liverpool will continue to fail to find the net so regularly in these sort of matches and the Both Teams to Score betting market offers us the chance to back “Yes” if we think that the north-west sides will both find the net during the ninety minutes.

At the time of writing, you can compare bookmaker odds and get 4/6 about BTTS Yes happening, while many punters will also look to bet on Over/Under 2.5 Goals depending on whether they think two or less goals will be scored in this FA Cup encounter or whether three or more will be netted instead.

The best betting odds for Over 2.5 Goals is available at 4/5 although some punters will be wary of having a bet on a high-scoring affair considering that the teams played out a recent goalless draw. Therefore, you could consider the Under 2.5 Goals bet at evens if you feel another cagey match could be on the cards.

What Are the Best Man United v Liverpool FA Cup Betting Tips?
