United vs Spurs - Betting preview with Betfred
31 December 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
It’s been a month since these teams Spurs played Manchester United in an entertaining 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane and both come into this game with some positive momentum after some tough spells this season.
Spurs have won twice since Tim Sherwood took charge, and they scored three times in both wins.
Spurs have been excellent on the road this season, as they were last term, and with United seemingly much more vulnerable at Old Trafford than in previous seasons they look good value.
The champions dropped points in just three of their home games last season but have already failed to win five times on their own patch this term.
Moreover, one of those failures last season was against Spurs, and while they’ve been winning recently their performances are still somewhat unimpressive. At 23/20 on the Double Chance market Spurs look a superb price to take something from this game.
If recent meetings are anything to go by this should feature plenty of goals as six of the last 10 head-to-head clashes in the league have had at least four goals. United have conceded in six of their last seven home games and continue to look vulnerable even as their results have improved.
Spurs have been more adventurous under Sherwood but one clean sheet in nine is the result of a greater emphasis on their attack in the past six weeks. Spurs’ last seven trips to top six teams have seen 28 goals and Over 2.5 Goals is a good price at 4/6.
Wayne Rooney looks likely to be fit for this clash and correct scorer bettors should note the England striker, who scored both United’s goals in the draw last month, has netted in five of his last six starts against Spurs. With both teams looking better in attack than defence it could pay to back him to continue his rich vein of form.
