Today’s Premier League betting tips will focus on Tottenham vs Manchester United, one of the most anticipated matches in the galaxy. In the reverse fixture Spurs strolled to a 6-1 win. Since then though, United’s season has sprung into life. As a result they go into the game second, 11 points clear of Sunday’s opponents.
On the surface, this seems to make this weekend’s game a foregone conclusion. However, this is rarely how it goes in the Premier League. If you are struggling to formulate a prediction, PlayersBest CA can help you out. We always provide the best Premier League betting tips for Canada bettors.
Although they drew 2-2, Tottenham’s display against Newcastle last time out was worrying. Many have even identified it as the low point of the Jose Mourinho era. Spurs’ made a string of basic errors and were extremely passive against one of the worst teams in the Premier League. They conceded 22 shots and a repeat performance will almost certainly see them on the end of a heavy defeat on Sunday. Mourinho was publically critical of his players after the game and a good response is key.
This game comes less than 72 hours after United face Granada in the Europa League. What’s more, they are the away side, meaning some of that time will be spent travelling. Meanwhile, Spurs have already been knocked out of Europe, meaning they will enjoy a full seven day rest prior to Sunday’s contest. It is not all bad news for United, though. Their away record this season is bettered by just two teams, Manchester City and Leicester City. They are set up well to counter Spurs’ leaky defence and could cause real problems.
As two of English football’s most famous teams, it is unsurprising that the pair have met so many times in the past. There have been 194 previous encounters in total with United dominating historically. They have won 92 games to Spurs 53. 49 have ended in draws. Between September 2001 and September 2012 United remained unbeaten against Spurs. More recently things have been tighter with the Red Devils only winning five of the last 10 meetings. Earlier this season Spurs put them to the sword 6-1.
To take your football betting to the stars you must use statistical analysis. It is easy to find in-depth football stats and learning how to use them to your advantage is a necessity. Here are three highlights that stood out to us ahead of Sunday’s game.
We are tipping United to shake off any post-Europa League fatigue and get the win on Sunday.
Despite their Europa League commitments, we fully expect United to beat a Tottenham team that looked all at sea last time out.
The Red Devils are perfectly set up for away fixture, with Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Dan James offering a substation threat on the counter. Although Spurs will attempt to restrict space in behind by deploying a deep defensive line, their error prone back four will seriously struggle to keep United at bay.
Those looking to back our tip should head over to William Hill. They are currently offering odds of 2.45 on an away win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. Make sure you check back next week for more of the best Premier League betting tips in Canada!
