Man Utd v Spurs – Paddy Power will refund losing bets if Spurs win!

Every weekend there is a new talking point and destination of the Premier League title, after Paul Scholes’ late winner in the Manchester Derby United are right back in the mix. The race for fourth is equally exciting and Spurs are the form team in the league right now, after successive victories over Arsenal and Chelsea they couldn’t be better prepared for the trip to Old Trafford.

Naturally Man Utd are favourites but given Spurs’ form the draw and away win will both be well backed, the draw is a 3/1 chance whilst Spurs are available at 5/1.

1/2 Man Utd Win
3/1 Draw
5/1 Spurs Win

After scoring in both wins over Arsenal and Chelsea, Gareth Bale looks a great value bet at 25/1 to score the first goal. He looks massively overpriced when you think how far forward he likes to get and he’s an option for any freekicks around the United penalty area. His price of 9/1 to score at anytime in the match is worthwhile too. Another player who has been instrumental for Spurs in those two great wins is Luca Modric who has done everything but score, he’s bossed the midfield against Arsenal and Chelsea and could be the one to unlock United as a 16/1 first goalscorer.

Manchester United will be hoping that Wayne Rooney can regain his form going into the final three games of the season, since his ankle injury he’s failed to score and after being in such prolific form prior to that United are missing his goals. He leads the first scorer market as a 3/1 chance but should he be that much shorter than Bale when you look at current form? A lot will be made of Dimitar Berbatov playing against his former club, he may have to be content with a starting spot on the bench so maybe look at him at 9/2 for the last goal in the match.

First Scorers
15/2 Defoe
9/1 Pavlychenko
10/1 Crouch
16/1 Modric
20/1 Bentley
25/1 Bale
25/1 Huddlestone

United have managed just two goals in their last three league matches and Rooney hasn’t scored for five league games, yet they still find themselves within a point of Chelsea. He’ll come good and United need him to soon, the Spurs defence are watertight at the minute so will fancy their chances against an out of sorts Rooney. At White Hart Lane Man Utd were convincing 3-1 winners, that’s 9/1 to happen again this Saturday lunchtime. But would require a famous United performance.

Spurs fans will tell you that a repeat of that should be more like 90/1 the way their team are playing they are the value. Look at Spurs 1-0 or 2-1 both 18/1, masses of value. Unlike any other weekend of the year Spurs fans will be hoping for an Arsenal win against Man City to strengthen the Spurs’ chances of finishing fourth.

Correct Score
18/1 Spurs 1-0
50/1 Spurs 2-0
18/1 Spurs 2-1
175/1 Spurs 3-0
70/1 Spurs 3-1

19/2 0-0
13/2 1-1
13/1 2-2
