Manchester United have endured a turbulent couple of seasons, but they have still remained a firm favourite with gamblers. Their prestige is still as high as it has ever been, and while they may not be at the top end of the league competing for trophies, they are still a team that punters will be hoping can get wins throughout the season to maximise their returns.
When betting on Manchester United, there are various markets that should be appreciated in order to maximise returns. These are often where punters can find the most profit, as United will typically go into games as the favourites to get the win no matter the competition that they are competing in. But, how can punters get the best from their bets on the Red Devils?
Manchester United Betting Tips
Betting on Manchester United can be incredibly lucrative, but finding the best value can often be difficult, which means tips are also handy. But, what should punters take into consideration before making their bets this season?
The most important factor that punters should take into considering when betting Manchester United is the latest team news. Injuries are part and parcel of life as a Premier League player, which means punters should research whether the Red Devils have any big injury concerns ahead of their upcoming fixtures. Injuries to stars like Paul Pogba or Marcus Rashford may have a damaging effect on whether they will win.
Head To Head
The recent form against an upcoming opponent is vital reading for all punters. This will have an effect on whether United have a good chance of getting the win or not. It
offers punters an insight into what could possibly happen. It could also offer trends that the punters should be aware of being placing their bet.
Punters should also be aware of the competition that the game is being played in. United have fielded different strength sides depending on the competition throughout the season, with the League Cup and Europa League often being used to give chances to the younger players in the squad. Meanwhile, the Red Devils will field full-strength line-ups in the Premier League and FA Cup.
Manchester United Coming Good For Punters
It has been a mixed season to this point for Manchester United, and that has been highlighted in their form throughout the season. However, they have still been able to deliver on numerous occasions for the punters and gave them significant wins. Here are some examples of those.
Norwich City 1-3 Manchester United
Manchester United are always expected to get positive results against the teams at the bottom of the league, and that is when the punters are most likely to bet on United winning. Their visit to Carrow Road in October would have been a game when punters included United in their accumulators, and they didn’t disappoint. United stormed into a three-goal lead after goals from Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay and Anthony Martial. It was a big win for United and one that all punters would have been happy to see.
Manchester United 3-0 Partizan
In the Europa League, United are one of the favourites in the betting to win the competition. That means that they have been a popular pick with punters throughout the competition so far and this was one of the games in which they would have been included on all bettors bets. United had lost their previous game but bounced back to winning ways with an excellent performance at Old Trafford against a weaker opposition. The goals in the game were scored by Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. Punters will be hoping that their strong form in the group stages can continue in the knockout rounds.
Manchester United 4-1 Newcastle United
The Red Devils hold an incredible record in Boxing Day fixtures, which means they would have been a popular pick for this season’s round of fixtures. Punters that included them on their bets would have been happy that they did so as they recorded a comfortable 4-1 win over Newcastle United at Old Trafford. The visitors went ahead early in the proceedings through Matthew Longstaff, but United hit back in excellent style with four unanswered goals. Anthony Martial scored twice, while there were also goals for Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.
