Betting on West Ham-Manchester United with betbuilder

The eighth-placed Hammermen host the seventh-placed Red Devils early Saturday afternoon.

Saturday of the 18th round of the Premier League kicks off with a thriller as West Ham host Manchester United. The oddsmakers’ numbers are no better, as they have the match as a three-way tie…

Team news

The Londoners will be in for a bumpy start to the weekend. After a 5-0 thrashing of Fulham, they have two important victories to their name, beating Freiburg 2-0 in the Europa League to finish top of their group, and sending Wolves home 3-0 in the PL, which moves them up to eighth place and one point behind their opponents on Saturday.

However, they suffered a serious blow on Wednesday, losing 5-1 at Liverpool in the English League Cup to see off the series. True, let’s be quick to add that David Moyes has made five changes to his core squad…

The Mancunians, meanwhile, head into the weekend with three games in hand. First they were beaten 3-0 at home by Bournemouth in the league, then they were mocked by Bayern Munich at Old Trafford (0-1) in the Champions League, which means they will not play in any international cup this spring, but on Sunday they managed a goalless draw at Anfield Road.

Well, there are not many conclusions to be drawn from that encounter, the Red Devils defended throughout, only managing one shot on target, but they did manage to get a point to keep their seventh place (one point ahead of eighth-placed West Ham and the same gap to sixth-placed Newcastle). However, it is worth pointing out that they have now gone more than three games without scoring a goal in a match, 201 minutes (!)…

Dalot was sent off against Liverpool and will not be available for Ten Hag on Saturday, while Malacia, Maguire, Casemiro, Lisandro Martínez, Mount and Diallo are all out through injury, while Sancho, Lindelöf and Eriksen are all doubtful, although Bruno Fernandes has served his ban and could return.

What is worth betting on?

The two sides last met in May, when WHU won 1-0 at home, while before that, in the FA Cup and PL at Old Trafford, the Mancunians won 3-1 and 1-0 respectively.

Anything could be on the cards based on the predictions, but with the Hammers being the home side (they have not lost in their last six home games, while the Red Devils have not won in their last three away games), they are the favourites, although if LFC can be nullified away from home by the Mancunians, why not the capital side?

Or would we really let go of betting on the outcome entirely, even at handicap, and go with a betting maker’s tip. We’re expecting a close game, which in our opinion and based on the forecast will not be about goals, so we’re betting on less than 4.5 goals, which we’ll add to that by betting on more than 3.5 penalty corners. In a game of this magnitude, four cards is easily in the cards, especially as WHU has an average of 2.71 and MU 2.53 in this area this year, while the referee will be Simon Hooper, who has “made” this limit in his last nine games…

Prediction #1: Less than 4.5 goals + More than 3.5 penalty card conceded @1.80
