Manchester United v West Bromwich Betting News

Betting
Manchester United will be in most Sunday accumulators even at 1/6 against a doomed West Brom at Old Trafford.

Manchester United’s stunning party-pooping comeback at the Etihad last weekend made it five Premier League wins in a row and 27 points from the last 11 since a sticky patch around Christmas.

Liverpool and Tottenham may have been the more eye-catching of the Champions League-chasers behind City this year, but Manchester United have been just as effective as that pair in leaving Chelsea and Arsenal in their wake.

So we can fully expect another United win in this one; the question is how best to try and profit if 1/6 is not your kind of price.

There are a couple of things worth noting here. Of United’s nine Premier League wins in 2018, only one has been by more than two goals, and that was against Stoke back in January. Five of their last seven wins have been by one goal.

They have also come from behind to win three of their last five – twice coming back from two goals down.

West Brom are 6/5 at 888.com with a two-goal start, which is worth a second glance, while a United win from behind is 10/1.

Can we trust the Baggies to keep things close, though? Potentially.

Their current form is nightmarishly bad, with last weekend’s 1-1 draw against Swansea snapping an eight-game losing streak in the Premier League.

But five of those defeats were by the odd goal, and West Brom also got on the scoresheet in five of those games.

Both teams have scored in seven of the Baggies’ last 10, and in four of Manchester United’s five straight wins, so don’t discount both teams to score in this one at an unusually large 13/8 either.

Romelu Lukaku has scored in four of his last five games at Old Trafford and 888.com’s 4/5 for him to score in this one looks a touch on the generous side. He’s opened the scoring in United’s last two home games and 11/4 in that market is also eye-catching.
