Premier League Betting Tips · 02.10.2021 - 10:30 · Old Trafford

There appears to be a disconnect to the reality of the Premier League standings and the expectations of the most common Premier League betting tips for this game. Manchester United and Everton sit side by side in the Premier League right now – fourth and fifth – with only goal difference between them. Despite that, this one is a very clear favourite.

But what if the bookmakers have got their stars misaligned? Well, I’ve got the landing pad ready to go. I can’t wait to break down whether or not the odds look accurate, and which I think offers you the finest betting opportunity. So, join my crew as we explore another bountiful betting planet for the best Premier League betting tips UK.

The current constitution

Manchester United Are Flawed but Remain Dangerous

I think the problem Manchester United often suffers from is people’s expectations of them are so sky high that anything other than greatness looks like mediocrity. That’s why the recent losses – particularly their painful 1-0 fall to Aston Villa – has left some fans feeling deflated.

But let’s not forget their opening games of the season. They arrived in spectacular style with a stonking 5-1 win over Leeds United. They then bested Wolves 1-0 , before Ronaldo arrived in style, scoring twice against Newcastle United in a 4-1 win. Don’t forget that away from the Premier League, they just beat Villarreal in a dramatic Champions League contest. Taken in full context, it’s clear Manchester United remain a force to be reckoned with, if not quite an invincible one.

Relatively Smooth Sailing for the Toffees

In comparison to their opponents, Everton’s season has been fairly drama free – other than an appalling 3-0 loss to Aston Villa, which marks their one and only loss so far this season. They got off to a wonderful start with a 3-1 win over Southampton, which featured a star performance from Richarlison, and looked unlucky not to beat Leeds in a dramatic 2-2 draw.

They also shined in a 2-0 win over Brighton. Burnley were no match for them, particularly the duo from Gray and Townsend, and they come into this game following a comeback 2-0 victory over Norwich City. If there’s one key concern though, it’s that none of those achievements have come against a team of the calibre of Manchester United.

Head to Head

Neither team is a stranger to beating and being beaten by one another. In fact, Manchester United have bested Everton 90 times since they first met in 1892, while Everton have managed a still impressive 70 victories. But let’s snap back from this wormhole of history and focus on the most recent.

They last met in February this year in a stunning six-goal extravaganza, where goals flew like asteroids, finalising in a 3-3 stalemate. Manchester United pull ahead when you look a little further though, beating Everton twice in 2020. In fact, aside from Everton’s stunning April 2019 4-0 victory, they have failed to beat Manchester United in 13 games – even if many ended in a draw.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Taking everything into consideration, I don’t actually think backing either team to win is the way to go. Instead, my Premier League betting tips UK pick is for that eternal game changer Cristiano Ronaldo to score anytime.

Ronaldo to be a Critical Cog in a Likely Manchester United Victory

Truthfully, I largely agree with the bookmakers when it comes to a Manchester United victory. I think considering that Everton haven’t been tested at this level this season and that following their crash out of the EFL Cup and their loss to Aston Villa, Manchester United will likely be very motivated in this match, I’d give the edge to them. However, it’s not my pick for today, because although I’d give my prediction nod to Manchester United , I disagree with how firmly the odds place them as favourites.

I looked elsewhere and discovered you can get better odds – at least that is at the time of writing – on a Cristiano Ronaldo anytime goal. That’s something I view as just as likely as Manchester United winning. For not just being what I view as a likely outcome, but for also providing a good deal in terms of odds, your captain’s Premier League betting tips pick is for Ronaldo to score anytime.
