Coral offering another lucrative 5/2 on a Man Utd win

| 01.01.2014

Registering an account with Coral proved a shrewd move for many punters on Boxing Day, as new customers were rewarded with enhanced odds from 4/7 to 5/2 on Manchester United winning away at Hull.

However, for those that missed out on this lucrative promotion, a second bite of the cherry has been made available for Man Utd’s next Premier League game at home to Tottenham.

The regular price for Man Utd beating Tottenham at Old Trafford is 4/5, but new customers can take advantage of another price boost to 5/2.

Full terms and conditions can be found here.

Some may be put off by the fact that Spurs triumphed 3-2 at Old Trafford last season, but this is a big anomaly in terms of the typical result of recent campaigns between these two at Old Trafford.

That victory ended a Spurs run of nine defeats in 10 visits to Old Trafford, with the one draw in this stretch coming in a 0-0 League Cup tie.

Man Utd also come into this clash in inspired form, as they have emerged victories in six successive games in all competitions. Spurs have won two of their four fixtures since Andre Villas-Boas departed, although they are on a four-game winning away run.

It is 7/2 that Tottenham beat the Red Devils again, with the draw on offer at 13/5.

Although they are now set up in a more attacking fashion under Tim Sherwood, the fact that Spurs haven’t scored an away goal this season against any team above them in the table is a concern.

Throw in that all five of Man Utd’s home games against opposition currently situated in the top half of the Premier League standings have seen no more than one goal scored, and this is unlikely to be a goalfest.

Manchester United’s odds to win 1-0 is attractively priced at 15/2, while under 2.5 goals in the match is appealing at 21/20.

David Moyes expects Wayne Rooney to be fit to play here, after he missed the latest 1-0 victory at Norwich because of a groin injury.

Rooney scored both goals in Man Utd’s 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane earlier this season and is 10/11 to score at any time in the 90 minutes again here.

While Rooney is not a certain starter, punters may favour Danny Welbeck as the man to fire Man Utd to victory.

Welbeck has four goals in as many games and is 5/4 to score against Spurs, with 5/1 the price that he breaks the deadlock.

Alternatively, it is 25/1 that Welbeck helps himself to the only goal in a 1-0 Man Utd success.
