Spurs vs. Man United picks & predictions

Tottenham vs Manchester United (+145, 2.5 @ Bet365)

Quick Hitter

A three-month layoff can be tough for any club to recapture their offensive touch and it could be even more difficult for both of these squads with stars such as Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Moussa Sissoko, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba trying to regain their form after recovering from injuries.

Expect a slow start to this match as both teams try to get their feet back under them, and bet on the first goal not being netted until after the 31-minute mark. 

Pick: Time of first goal - 31st minute and Over (+120)

 

 

Team/Player Prop

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has scored 14 goals this season and had tallied a goal in three of his last four EPL matches. The 24 year old has quickly developed chemistry with the recently acquired Bruno Fernandes, plus the return of Pogba and Rashford should give him another boost up front. Take the Frenchman to score a goal at +160.

Pick: Anthony Martial anytime goal (+160)

 

Over/Under Bet

Don't be surprised to see conservative game plans, with both sides knowing just how costly a loss would be for their Champions League aspirations.

Man U has allowed just two goals - posting seven clean sheets - over their last nine matches across all competitions, so expect goals to come at a premium and bet the Under 2.5.  

Pick: Under 2.5 (-110)

 

Side Bet

These clubs were moving in opposite directions heading into the COVID-19 shutdown, with Manchester United unbeaten in their last 11 matches across all competitions and Tottenham failing to win a single match in their previous six (four losses and two draws). 

Man United will surely miss injured defenders Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe, but the loss of Japhet Tanganga (back injury) and midfielder Dele Alli (serving a one-game suspension for a racially-insensitive post on social media) will hurt Tottenham even more.

These clubs last met up in December, when Manchester United posted a 2-1 victory. And although this will be a tougher task on the road, the Red Devils should be in a good position for their second-consecutive win at Tottenham, following up on a 1-0 victory in 2019. 

Pick: Manchester United (+145)
