For this weekend’s football predictions, I’m looking at in form Manchester United who are at home to Chris Hughton’s Brighton side.
Happily, our free football tips returned to winning ways last Monday with Man City winning on the Handicap (-2) at home to Wolves, bringing up a nice 6/4 winner for us.
I’m not straying too far from the usual formula for this one. So I’m looking at the Handicap market again, and United at -1 start looks good value at better than Even money.
FOOTBALL BETTING PREDICTIONS MAN UTD V BRIGHTON
Recommended Bet – 5 Points on Man United to beat Brighton at -1 Handicap, at 21/20 with Ladbrokes.
Of the top teams in form at the moment the Man Utd Handicap looks good value. Liverpool at home to Crystal Palace at -1 is 8/13, which is too short. Especially when you think that Palace won at the Etihad just a few weeks ago.
Spurs have no Harry Kane or Son Heung-Min, but I did think about them as they are 8/11 outright with most firms. I still might tip that up tomorrow. It’s not beyond the realms of possibility to see Spurs winning 1-0 at Craven Cottage.
Man City are away at Huddersfield, and the markets are expecting a landslide victory. Short of tipping City to score 5, or only win 1-0, there is no real value in that fixture.
Red Hot Red Devils
Last Sunday’s 1-0 win over Tottenham at Wembley was United’s fifth league win in a row under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. They are currently in red hot form, and it’s hard to see Brighton halting that run.
With form like this it’s hard to ignore United, even though they’ve failed me before this season. That was under Jose Mourinho though, and things have no changed at Old Trafford.
Yes, the run will end some day soon, the law of averages tells us that. Let’s just hope for the sake of our free tip, it’s not today.
For their part, Brighton lost their last match 1-0 to Liverpool at the Amex. Despite losing, that wasn’t a bad result against the Premier League leaders.
Their previous results before that were a 2-2 draw away at West Ham, a 1-0 win over Everton at home, and a credible 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal.
The Seagulls are in decent form, and won’t be a push over for the Red Devils. Going to Old Trafford and facing a rampant Man Utd is a totally different proposition though, and lets hope for the sake of our free betting prediction, they are not up to it.
