United Favourites But Spurs Are On Form

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

It is the biggest game this weekend so Paddy Power are going to refund all losing 1st/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets on the match should Spurs win. So even if your bet is a loser Paddy Power could give you your money back.

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

That's got to be the first time I have seen so many Spurs fans GungHo about a game at OT. Hope it's a great game of football, of course with United winning! And norwichspur, I would want only one of the lot, Mordric, the rest are where they should be playing, Bale is a lot of potential though.

Always tough old trafford. this will be our great chance of beating u there, or of course we could still get stuffed. If i know Redknapp the way i think i do, regarding tactics, Modric with be on the right side of midfield for Bently. Palacios will slot into central midfield.

Elvido - so you wouldnt want Lennon? & your telling me you wouldnt swap defoe for berba - yeah right. Palacios would walk straight into any 1st team in any club in the world. Your a bit ill informed my friend -
Report Abuse
22/04/2010 22:45:00

No I wouldn't want Lennon, he is no improvement on either Nani or Valencia. Defoe for Berba? no thanks! I love Berba as a player, he may not fit very well into our counter attacking system right now but he is a much better footballer then Defoe! How come there are no bids for your Palacios from other European clubs then? if there are not too many like him? I don't need to be "well informed", just watch the game week in week out like the rest of you.

The point is, elvido, your team is DESPERATE. We're not, even if we lose the situation is still pretty much in our own hands. And I don't care what Man U supporters say, you look at the way Chelsea outplayed you, and the way we outplayed them, and you're sh****** yourselves! You know you're playing against a side on the up, with something to play for, and its not a pleasant prospect. We KNOW you're very worried! Oh, and if it comes to that, Rooney is really the only player from your side I'd want ... when he's fully fit. Everybody know Man U's star is on the decline. Even buying new players - which you desperately need to - will only increase your 800-million pound debt. Its the end of the road.

Modric would definately get into our first team. Palacios would be a useful squad player. Bale has potential but I'd like to see him keep up his current level of performances for a season before judging him. As for Gomes, Huddlestone, Dawson and King - good players - but not better than what we've got. Its good to see some spurs fans talking a good game! Lets hope your team are just as over confident as you are. As well as you've played in recent games - I guarantee you no one is ****ting themselves about playing you - spurs are the kings of the collapse. Arguably the pressure of actually being expected to beat us will work against you.

who's sounding DESPERATE now? I enjoy playing against a side on the up, specially when we are going to do our "usual" on them! Don't you worry about our debt, a couple more league and European titles should take care of that! And as far as sh****** myself, I am sure yours will be the Yellow Streak running out of OT after the A** W******* we are going to give you!

Tuscan, that's just it - nobody outside Spurs expects us to beat you. But I just hope the Spurs camp sees it as I do. We have nothing to prove, and we do not need to push you back early on. We know you have to come at us - you can't play it any other way - and we simply have to be patient and take our chances. The pressure is on Man U.

Smell a lot if Horse S***, not so much coffee. Not much for repeating myself, we are going to win, the "debt" is not going to affect us in the long terms because we are a very big brand, I never said Spurs are a bad team, I just said we are going to beat them because we are better, not saying that just for the sake of it, we have a couple of trophies too, you know. Yes you are a team on the up and i have actually watched a few games because i like your players, a couple of whom are good enough for a higher level. Unless you want me repeating that Ad nauseam, there is no point in both of us conveying our distinct feelings on the fixture, albeit in various tones. So, all in all, Yes, I think we are better and we are going to beat you!

Agree Muller. If give our best shot and lose purely down to football reasons i won't be too disappointed. However if we are robbed by biased refs, Fergie time etc i'll not be pleased.
