Man United v Everton tips – are Red Devils an EPL banker?

The Premier League Saturday night fixture involves Manchester United clashing with Everton and it will be interesting to see whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side can pick up the three points that they need to stay alive in the title race following dropped points against Sheffield United and Arsenal.

While the Red Devils looked like they were capable of challenging for the title a few games ago, it might now be the case that they’re looking to fend off challengers for a top four spot in the English top flight and their record at Old Trafford hasn’t been particularly outstanding this season.

Should Manchester United Be Heavy Betting Favourites?

At the time of writing, United still sit second in the Premier League table, although Manchester City are above them with a game in hand and champions Liverpool appear to have dragged themselves quickly out of the mire by landing victories away to Tottenham and West Ham United.

Perhaps it’s more notable that the Red Devils are six points clear of fifth-placed West Ham United and we’re looking at home form of four wins, two draws and four defeats from a team who simply look far more comfortable when they take to the road where they hold an unbeaten status.

Even so, the bookies are taking few chances about a home win in this game and the latest Premier League betting odds show Manchester United as the 11/20 favourites to win this clash, despite their current 40% home win rate at Old Trafford.

Despite the attacking quality within the squad, United failed to score at the Emirates recently and only had a Harry Maguire effort to show on the scoresheet against Sheffield United, with Solskjaer struggling to find the right combination in attack.

Everton Big Betting Outsiders and Proving Inconsistent

The Toffees sit in eighth place in the Premier League table at the time of writing. Like their opponents, they have secured more points away from home this season, scoring six victories from their nine matches played on the road and losing on just two occasions.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are one of the hardest to predict in the English top flight and some might think it’s worth a punt at the betting odds of 6/1 about the Merseyside outfit considering that their style of play seems well suited to taking to the road.

Everton recently won at Wolves and drew at home to Leicester before losing strangely at home to Newcastle, although Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison can be a dangerous combination in attack and James Rodriguez is now back in the team after having an injury-hit few weeks.

What Are the Best Betting Markets and Tips For the Game?

Everton tend to find the net during their Premier League away games, while Manchester United will be looking to take off the shackles and play some attacking football at Old Trafford, with the goals having been in short supply recently.

Therefore, we can probably sidestep the Full-Time Result betting market and look at the Both Teams to Score football betting market instead where you can place a bet on the Yes option at betting odds of 7/10 which means we simply need Manchester United or Everton to score at least one goal each.

Alternatively, you could look at the Over 2.5 Goals betting option at 4/6 and that would mean we need the Red Devils and Toffees to collectively score three goals between them over the course of the ninety minutes.

For those wanting to place a bet on the 1x2 betting market, we would say that there’s more value to be gleaned from having a bet on the draw price at 10/3 rather than betting on the home win. If you are going to have a wager on United, consider backing them in combination with BTTS Yes at 2/1.
