Match Betting (1x2)

Manchester United look like banker material on the weekend football coupon, with customers sure to include the Red Devils in their accumulator at odds of 4/11 considering that they have started the season strongly.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team began with a 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea which saw the team run riot during the second half of the clash, while they followed this up with a 1-1 draw at Molineux and they were only a missed penalty away from victory.

As for Crystal Palace, the layers are prepared to take on Roy Hodgson’s side to the extent where you can get 19/2 about the visitors landing all three points and it’s really hard to make a case for them.

Palace were barely able to conjure a scoring chance at Bramall Lane against promoted Sheffield United and it could be tough for them, with the visitors squaring up to a team which includes former Eagle Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The draw is trading at 15/4 and that might have represented an interesting bet last season when United were wobbling, although they seem more robust with Harry Maguire at the back, while the combination of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial looks to be something special.

First Goalscorer

It’s interesting that Manchester United have been awarded penalties in both Premier League matches to date and it also appears that the Red Devils have two penalty takers. Marcus Rashford scored from the spot against Chelsea before Paul Pogba missed against Wolves, which would indicate that the former will be back on penalty duties.

The England forward is a 7/2 chance to break the deadlock against Palace and he’ll be excited to line up against a team who look like struggling this term, although it’s Anthony Martial who will be occupying the centre forward position and the Frenchman is 4/1 with Paddy Power to score first.

Martial has bagged in both games and looks to be getting on the end of several chances, with Daniel James trading at a bigger 8/1 and the former Swansea winger will look to terrorise opponents with his pace although Palace might not be susceptible on the counter-attack.

Harry Maguire might interest some customers at 18/1 considering that the former Leicester defender could make his presence felt from corners, although there will be a former Red Devils lining up and hoping to wreak havoc.

Wilfried Zaha played a handful of games for United and perhaps wishes he had remained at the club, with the exciting winger having handed in a transfer request this summer but missing his chance to enjoy a big move.

Zaha is a 12/1 chance to score the opener, while Luka Milivojevic is on penalty kicks and he’s 14/1 to break the deadlock.

Both Teams to Score

We’re feeling quite strongly about this match in terms of Manchester United winning the game to nil and that means that the 6/5 with bet365 could be worth taking about the Red Devils claiming three points and landing a clean sheet.

This is an interesting way of backing the home team at a bigger price on the basis that they manage to shut out a Crystal Palace side who are yet to score, while Solskjaer’s side have only conceded one Premier League goal.

Betting “No” when it comes to Both Teams to Score is a good option and that is trading at odds of 5/6, especially considering that it covers the possibility of a goalless draw which would be a great outcome for Palace.

However, if you think that the visitors are capable of scoring a goal even if it’s only a consolation goal, then Unibet go 21/20 although we’re much bigger fans of the opposite bet.

Over / Under Goals

This is an interesting betting market for the game between Manchester United and Crystal Palace. The Red Devils blew Chelsea away by a four-goal margin in their opener at Old Trafford before a more modest 1-1 draw at Wolves although we should note that they did miss a penalty and, if that spot kick had been converted, then we would have seen Over 2.5 Goals cop.

Bet365 go 8/11 that Over 2.5 Goals happens in this clash, with that meaning the ball has to hit the net on three occasions. It’s possible that United could manage this on their own and those thinking that they could fill their boots means that Over 3.5 Goals could be an interesting bet at 2/1.

Alternatively, we have to consider that Crystal Palace might not have shown a great deal of attacking invention, although the Eagles have been defensively robust in defence thus far and it’s possible that Gary Cahill will be brought into the team for extra experience in a game like this.

Therefore, Under 2.5 Goals could interest some punters at 11/10 and maybe it will be a slow going for a Manchester United team who might be posed with a different kind of challenge considering that Palace will surely put men behind the ball.

We haven’t yet seen a team come to Old Trafford and sit on their haunches, with Under 1.5 Goals available at 3/1 and that’s been the outcome in both Palace matches to date.

Correct Score

If, like us, you’re of the opinion that Manchester United will win this match without conceding, then you might be interested in combining a couple of correct scorelines for maximum effect. For example, bet365 go 6/1 about the Red Devils winning by a 1-0 scoreline and you can also get the same price that they triumph by a 2-0 scoreline.

However, we’re prepared to combine 3-0 and 4-0 instead, with the former trading at 9/1 and we’re confident that the Red Devils can rack up a few goals against a team who will surely have to come forward when they concede the opening goal.Another 4-0 victory for the home side is chalked up at 18/1 and that’s certainly an interesting price, although you can get 12/1 about a 0-0 scoreline and Palace will certainly be out to thwart their opponents.
