Sportingbet Preview: Man United

Our betting partners Sportingbet give a rundown on some of the markets available for Saturday's match against Manchester United.

Spurs head to Old Trafford as 9/2 underdogs this weekend, and while their previous results there suggest the price is right, surely the visitors are worth a punt with Sportingbet?

The record undoubtedly makes unhappy reading, with no win since 1989 despite chances a plenty to break the two-decade hoodoo in league and cup in recent seasons.

But with Manchester United set to be missing Wayne Rooney once again, and Spurs arguably at their peak since those heady days of Gascoigne and Lineker, now could be the time to get great value on an end to the misery in Manchester!

Even the draw at 13/5 looks a hefty price considering Spurs' upward trend, while the traditional home win looks short at 11/20.

With a rare week of rest to fully prepare for the encounter, Spurs will travel with a spring in their step, and after notching his fifth goal of the season against Everton, Rafael Van der Vaart now leads the Goalscorer betting for the visiting team.

The Dutch star is 15/2 for the first goal or 12/5 to score at any time, with the likes of Luka Modric (5/1), Aaron Lennon at (13/2) and Younes Kaboul at (10/1) also on offer at appealing odds to get on scoresheet.

First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast have added incentive this weekend too, as Sportingbet's Heads You Win promotion means any losing bets in these markets will be refunded if the final goal of the game is a header.

This special offer applies to all Premier League games this weekend, so you can back goals with a little insurance in the bag!

There's plenty more Premier League tips and discussion as ever on the Sportingbet Podcast, as well as the chance to win a weekly £50 Free Bet.

This week there's World Masters Darts, a look at the new NBA season and the usual input from former England player Steve Bull to compliment our best footballing bets, so tune in every Friday!

All odds correct at time of writing.
