Match Betting (1x2)

A lot has been written about Manchester United this season and most of it has been fairly critical about the Red Devils’ performances in the Premier League that means they sit twelfth in the standings going into the international break.

It’s probable that United will end up climbing back up the ranks and potentially finish in the top six of the top flight, although a resurgence might be delayed for another week considering that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team clash with a Liverpool side who have recorded eight straight wins.

The bookies offer 15/4 about a home win which is the biggest price we’ve seen United trade at against their arch-rivals and BetVictor are offering those odds for anyone interested in backing it.

United have beaten Chelsea and Leicester at home this season and typically raise their game when facing Merseyside opponents, with the team drawing 0-0 against Liverpool last season despite suffering several injuries during the encounter.

Unibet offer 13/4 that this match ends all square and perhaps the visitors can be thwarted considering that Sheffield United came close to landing a point against them a few weeks ago.

Similarly, Napoli were able to match Liverpool, although it won’t stop punters backing the visitors at odds-on, with Paddy Power going 4/5 about a victory for Jurgen Klopp’s side claiming the points.

They are sure to be a popular accumulator pick as the Reds look to keep Manchester City at arm’s length, with the latter and the majority of bookmakers hoping that United can do them a favour.

First Goalscorer

Sadio Mane has opened the scoring in the past two Liverpool matches and the Senegal forward is clearly someone who will be on the end of chances at Old Trafford, with Unibet offering 23/5 that the former Southampton man scores the first goal of this clash.

Klopp will be eager for his team to create more chances in this fixture after losing and drawing the past two encounters, with Mohamed Salah keen to get among the goals and the Egyptian King is 4/1 with Unibet to break the deadlock.

At a bigger price, we find it hard to resist Virgil van Dijk who will be such a lively threat from corners and the Dutchman is 18/1 with Paddy Power to score the opening goal of this clash.

As for United, they will hope to welcome back two Frenchmen in the form of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial, with the former often raising his game for these sort of encounters and William Hill go 10/1 about a midfielder who hasn’t produced a world-class performance for United in several matches.

As for Martial, he was looking dangerous in the early matches before succumbing to injury and Ladbrokes have 17/2 that he is a thorn in the side of Liverpool which won’t be the first time this has happened.

Asian Handicap

The Asian Handicap betting market is great for those punters who have a strong opinion when it comes to a particular team doing well and there will be plenty of pro-Liverpool punters who want to get with the Reds to win by a considerable margin.

Liverpool are a 26/19 chance with BetVictor off a handicap of -1 and that means that you will profit if the visitors manage to land a victory by a two-goal margin or bigger, while you will get money back if they only get home by one goal.

It is noticeable that the Reds haven’t really gone goal crazy away from home this term and only managed to beat Sheffield United, Southampton and Chelsea by single goal margins.

Therefore, some will want to get with Manchester United +1.5 and that is trading at 21/50 with Unibet which allows you to get with the Red Devils, the draw and Liverpool winning by a single goal.

For those that think the visitors might be able to win by a comfortable margin, they can be backed at 4/1 with Unibet off a -2 goal handicap and that means they would need to win by three goals or more to win on this bet.

Both Teams to Score

Manchester United have managed to find the net in all four home matches and Liverpool have done the same in their away games this term. Therefore, it’s little surprise to find the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score market trading at 8/11 with William Hill.

However, we should bear in mind that this game ended goalless last term and Solskjaer will want his team to make life similarly difficult for a Liverpool side who are capable of running riot given half the chance.

The “No” option on the BTTS market is available at 6/5 with BetVictor and this includes the 0-0 draw along with either side winning the game without reply.

Over / Under Goals

BetVictor offer odds of 4/5 about Over 2.5 Goals and that has happened in 50% of Manchester United’s home matches this season, while it’s occurred in 75% of Liverpool’s away games.

We’re not entirely sure that there will be three goals in the game considering that Manchester United would be pleased to take a draw from the contest and Under 2.5 Goals therefore makes more appeal at 21/20 with Ladbrokes.

Correct Score

If you fancy that there will be another goalless draw, then No Goalscorer could be a good option and that’s currently trading at 13/2, with the home side certain to be cagey and getting to the interval with the scoreline level would be a good achievement.

We aren’t sure that Manchester United will create much against this robust Liverpool team and don’t mind the idea of Liverpool winning this game by a 2-0 scoreline which is chalked up at 17/2 with BetVictor.

A 2-1 win for Liverpool can be backed at 7/1 with William Hill and they have won twice by that scoreline on the road this term, while they also triumphed by the same outcome against Leicester City.
