Betting Preview: Hull City v Manchester United – Premier League 2016/17

A visit to Hull City awaits Jose Mourinho and his men this weekend, with the Red Devils looking to extend the managers 100% record in his new job. Thus far things have been fairly cut and dry for Manchester United, with two-goal winning margins against Bournemouth and Southampton in the league and this weekend promises to be a stern test for the men in red. As such, there is money to be made.

To win Outright*

Hull City – 7/1

Draw – 10/3

Manchester United – 1/2

A £10 take on Manchester United returns £15 (including stake).

Correct Score 

In three matches Manchester United have scored seven and conceded two. In each of the three matches, United have scored a minimum of two goals and away from Old Trafford is where they have conceded both of the goals thus far. Hull’s record is a mirror image of Manchester United’s. Beating Champions Leicester 2-1 on the opening day, followed up by 2-0 and 3-1 wins against Swansea and Exeter respectively. Mike Phelan has them playing good football and playing as a solid unit, as such I fully expect both sides to register. If you fancy United to win 2-1 or 3-1, you’re looking at 8-1 and 12-1 for each of these outcomes. An exact reverse comes in at 25/1 and 85/1 with a 1-1 or 2-2 draw presenting odds of 15/2 and 25/1. A £10 stake on United to repeat their score at Bournemouth returns £130 (including stake)

Goalscorers 

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic chasing his own piece of Manchester United history you would be a fool to not at least consider wagering something on the Swede to do so. First goalscorer odds are 10/3 and anytime comes in at odds on with 5/6. After Ibrahimovic, you don’t need to look too far for options, Wayne Rooney is 15/8 anytime and Anthony Martial 5/2. Marcus Rashford is a generous 15/8 considering he will most likely start on the bench. For Hull, their biggest goal threat is Adama Diomende and for him to score first is a tempting 10/1 and anytime a nice looking 4/1. A £10 stake on Ibrahimovic to score first returns £43.33 (including stake)

Stat Attack 

Betfred offers this special market, and if this tickles your fancy then the offering for this clash is both teams to score at an accumulator boosting 5/4. As a bet on its own, I would not recommend going this way, but with both sides scoring goals the likelihood is that pattern will continue come Saturday, this is certainly one for those who enjoy a ‘goals galore’ coupon.

Bet of the Day

Although I believe both sides will score and United will come out triumphant, this was my bet of the day last time I wrote this preview so I am going to resist repeating myself in spite of the temptation of odds of 11/4. Instead, my bet of the day goes to the result and total goals over/under market. Betfred is offering Manchester United to win and over 3.5 goals at 10/3, and as I am predicting a 3-1 win for the side from Manchester this is right in line with that prediction. A £10 stake on this returns £43.33 (including stake) and it is exactly where my money is going Saturday evening.
