Leeds United v Manchester United Premier League Betting Tips 20/02/2022

Leeds United v Manchester United

Leeds United vs Manchester United always has the potential for entertainment, so what better match for our Leeds United v Manchester United Premier League Betting Tips 20/02/2022. These two long-standing rivals have produced some crackers in recent years, with plenty of goals on show too. Yet, in recent weeks, both sides have struggled in the Premier League. A rivalry win here, however, could give either side a lift for the rest of the season. This fixture will kick off at 2p.m and the match will be broadcast on Sky Sports. 

Team News/Form

Leeds winless run extended to three following a 3-0 thrashing at Everton last weekend. In recent weeks, the Whites have taken one point from their last nine available after a 3-3 draw at Aston Villa. There was relief at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening as Man United finally won after drawing their previous three. United comfortably beat ten-man Brighton. The win extended their unbeaten run to six in the Premier League. 

In terms of team news and injuries, Junior Firpo could return to the Leeds squad. But Sam Greenwood (knee), Patrick Bamford (ankle), Stuart Dallas (knock), Kalvin Phillips (groin) and Liam Cooper (groin) are all ruled out. United may be given a defensive boost this weekend as Eric Bailly and Raphael Varane could be in contention. The game comes too soon for Edinson Cavani (groin) and Nemanja Matic (calf), who are both doubtful.

Match Winner Betting Odds

Currently, the match winner odds show Man United as the outright favourites to win against Leeds. United’s win over Brighton in midweek could give them a much-needed boost heading into this rivalry match. SpreadEx have the best odds for an away win at 19/20. Leeds are enduring an incredibly inconsistent season. The Whites have won just five matches all season, and they have lost two of their last three. As a result, a home win seems unlikely, and the odds reflect this, with 10Bet offering 31/10. However, a good value bet this weekend would be on a draw. Last season, Leeds held United to a 0-0 draw at Elland Road, and Marcelo Bielsa’s side are unbeaten in six of their last eight home matches. The Red Devils have also been drawing specialists away recently. They have tied four of their last six on the road. Our tip this week is to back another draw at 3/1, provided by Betfred.

Under 2.5 Total Goals Bet

This match could be tense and closely fought. Neither side are in the best of form, and Leeds won’t want to lose to their rivals after getting thrashed 5-1 at Old Trafford earlier in the season. In addition, both sides have seen some low scorers recently. Leeds have seen under 2.5 goals in five of their last eight home matches. United have also kept the scores down with under 2.5 in their last 5. As a result, our total goals tip is to go with under 2.5 total goals at 13/10, provided by Boylesports

Anytime Goalscorer Betting Market

Although a low scorer is expected, picking an anytime goalscorer is a good way to add more value to an under 2.5 goals bet. Looking at Leeds’ and United’s ranks, there have been a few players in excellent form. However, Leeds’ Dan James has been one of the standout performers in recent weeks. The Welsh winger was instrumental in the comeback 3-3 draw against Villa two matches ago, scoring two. James also netted in Leeds’ last home win, a 3-1 victory over Burnley. At 37/10 with SBK, there is decent value on another potential James goal against his former club. From United’s ranks, Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo are the obvious choices. But we are backing another player hitting their stride for the Red Devils. Jadon Sancho has scored two in four since returning from the winter break. The English forward appears to have found his feet under Ralf Rangnick and, at 3/1, provided by Bet365, Sancho to score again is a good option. 

Leeds and Man United will want to get their seasons back on track after some disappointing recent form. But can these underperforming sides kick-start the final third of their campaign with a win over their rivals?
