Man Utd to beat Everton and under 3.5 goals
Super Sunday means Coral just have to oblige with a bet of the day which matches the momentous match-ups, and today it is Everton v Man Utd odds that star as the Northwest duo get ready to tussle at Goodison Park.
Our pick of the prices is for the Red Devils to win and under 3.5 goals to be scored in the game at a plum 9/5. So, to find out why we reckon this is the Sunday bet worth taking, read on…
Red Devils gathering momentum
The Toffees have come unstuck 85 times before to Man Utd, and lost all three of their frays with the Old Trafford outfit across all competitions last campaign.
In those previous three wrangles, under 3.5 goals were also scored and, in fact, in all of the last nine meetings between United and Everton there have never been more than a trio of total strikes fired in.
As it stands, Man Utd have come in for criticism, but are actually unbeaten in their past five outings in all comps. The Red Devils appear to be gaining momentum at a crucial part of the season, after reaching the EFL Cup semi-finals and also putting themselves in a good position to qualify from Europa League Group A.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial in form, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan finding his feet, Ronald Koeman should rightly be worried about Everton’s defence.
The Merseysiders have recorded just one league win from their past seven fixtures, leaking 12 in that time, keeping just a sole clean sheet in that woeful run.
So, Jose Mourinho’s men should be licking their lips with Everton also having managed just two goals across their previous three outings.
With all that in mind then, United look cracking value to beat their hosts with under 3.5 strikes in the clash. Snap up those odds sharpish!
