Manchester United and Crystal Palace are set to face off at Old Trafford for the second time in just four days this Saturday afternoon in the Premier League.
They previously clashed in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night, where the Red Devils clinched a solid 3-0 victory, making the betting recommendation a success. This victory, along with the last weekend’s 1-0 win at Burnley, has surely brought some cheer to the United camp after a dismal start to their season.
Erik ten Hag’s squad is eager to maintain this positive momentum by triumphing over Crystal Palace once again this weekend. It’s clear that Palace’s backup lineup couldn’t match up to their first team, so it’s likely that Roy Hodgson’s starting XI this weekend will have a more familiar appearance at the Theatre of Dreams.
Coming into this game, the Eagles haven’t secured a win in their last three matches in all competitions, making a victory this Saturday seem like a tough challenge.
Manchester United, with odds at 8/13, are the favorites to mark consecutive Premier League wins for the first time this season. The betting odds indicate a potential repeat of Tuesday night’s outcome for Crystal Palace, listed as big outsiders at 5/1.
The previous successful bet was Manchester United to Win and Under 4.5 Goals. The Red Devils have consistently delivered efficient, if not dazzling, performances, especially at Old Trafford.
Since Erik ten Hag’s appointment in summer 2022, United has won 17 of their 22 top-flight home games, facing defeat only twice. Furthermore, 17 of these 22 wins were in matches with no more than four total goals, making it a sound bet for Saturday’s game.
Despite expectations of a stronger showing from Hodgson’s squad, they will likely fall short against the formidable Manchester United team. This wager has been profitable in each of the Eagles’ five losses since Hodgson’s return, adding to the allure of this bet for the weekend.
Rasmus Højlund To Score Or Assist at 11/10. After a promising start this season and scoring his first United goal against Bayern Munich last week, he’s a good bet for a goal or assist in this game at an attractive price.
