Manchester United are odds-on in the football betting to win this Premier League match although it’s hard to be too confident about their chances. After all, the Red Devils will have played a midweek match against Brentford leading into this match and it’s patently clear that Ralf Rangnick is still trying to find the winning blend at the north-west club.

Some punters will look to include United in their Premier League accumulator betting although there are perhaps better choices at the latest football betting odds considering that the Red Devils recently stumbled at home to Wolves, while they also conspired to throw away a two-goal lead at Villa Park before drawing 2-2.

Why Are Manchester United Odds-On in the Betting?

According to the latest Premier League table which highlights league position and points totals, there is little between these two teams. Therefore, even allowing for home advantage, there must be a reason why the top football betting sites are making Rangnick’s side strong favourites to overcome an opponent who previously won at Old Trafford in the EFL Cup this season.

Perhaps it’s down to the potential that lies within the Manchester United squad, while a lot of Premier League bookies are always wary of the money that will come for the Red Devils in a match like this, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo now back from an injury which recently kept him out of the Villa clash.

Even so, the win ratio under Rangnick has been modest and the only Premier League victories under the German were narrow 1-0 victories over Norwich City and Crystal Palace. We certainly need some more evidence of Bruno Fernandes and Ronaldo working well in tandem, while there are question marks over a defence where Harry Maguire is having a poor season.

Can West Ham Bounce Back From Home Defeat Against Leeds?

David Moyes was pretty scathing of the fixture schedule over the past few weeks and it certainly appeared that fatigue played a part when West Ham were defeated at home to Leeds United last weekend. Despite the visitors having to contend with plenty of injuries and a situation where young players were blooded, they were still able to beat in-form opponents.

However, the Hammers were previously successful when winning at Watford and Crystal Palace, with their style of play often suited to away games such as this one. When you compare Premier League betting odds, there are some tasty prices about a team who will have benefitted from a week’s rest and that is considerably more than their opponents when it comes to this clash.

Michail Antonio was all the rage during the early part of the season and the Jamaican international continues to lead the line for a side who have genuine Premier League top four betting aspirations this term. However, the two star turns are currently Jarrod Bowen and Declan Rice, the latter of whom will be confident of making a big impact in the midfield engine room.

What Are the Best Bets for Manchester United v West Ham?

The Premier League football betting sites might have United at odds-on but we think there’s a strong case for opposing a team that clearly look better on paper than they are as a collective. With a midweek game against Brentford to negotiate, we would look for football bets where the home side can be opposed.

For example, there is the chance to place online football bets on the Draw No Bet market where you can back the Hammers and get money back if the game ends all square. Alternatively, you could even look at a football bet such as the Double Chance market where West Ham and the draw can be backed at around the even money mark.
