Manchester United Headline Handicaps
After being embarrassed by Manchester City in their 4-1 derby loss last weekend, Manchester United will be looking to bounce back in sensational style next time out. Unfortunately for West Brom, it’s they who are likely to feel the Red Devils’ wrath and will fall dramatically in their trip to Old Trafford.
The reigning Premier League champions, who could welcome Robin van Persie back this week, are priced at 4/5 to win by more than a goal while you can find odds of 21/10 for David Moyes’ side to win by three or more.
Another side which provides good value on the spread is Southampton, who welcome goal-shy Crystal Palace to St. Mary’s this weekend.
Currently 6/5 to win by more than a goal on the south coast, the Saints look a good bet considering they just brought an end to Liverpool’s unbeaten streak. Ian Holloway’s Palace side is also having issues in front of goal, failing to score in their last two matches.
Speaking of Liverpool, the Reds might be fairly underpriced considering they’re currently 8/5 to win by more than the odd goal at the Stadium of Light next week. With Luis Suarez coming back into Brendan Rodgers’ fold, Liverpool’s attack will be reinforced, while Sunderland will still be reeling from Paolo Di Canio’s sacking earlier in the week.
Not every team has the ability to take the initiative from kick-off at the elite level, and sometimes it takes slightly longer to get into one’s stride.
Chelsea’s weekend trip to Tottenham looks to be a difficult one for both Jose Mourinho and Andre Villas-Boas, which is represented in the odds.
Each side can be found at 5/1 to be level at half-time before going on to take all three points at full-time, whereas odds of 28/1 have been promoted for either team to be losing after the first period before pulling off a comeback.
Both Spurs and the Blues went in at the break with a 0-0 scoreline in their most recent victories, and Mourinho's Chelsea have been particularly poor at putting together complete 90-minute performances so far in the campaign.
In another of this weekend’s tightest encounters, Fulham and Cardiff City are both at odds of 14/1 to go in ahead at the break in their Craven Cottage clash, only to be pegged back for a draw.
Combined, the pair have scored just one first-half Premier League goal across 10 matches this season, providing good reason to believe there will be second-half drama.
For the more adventurous gambler, Manchester City are currently priced at 40/1 to be up at half-time of their Saturday trip to Aston Villa before losing come the final whistle.
Though massive odds, City infamously fell apart at the Cardiff City Stadium after going 1-0 up earlier this season and could do so again in Birmingham.
