Manchester United v Everton Premier League Betting Tips 02/10/2021

Manchester United v Everton

Man United head back to Old Trafford following a disappointing loss against Aston Villa last time out. It was the Red Devil’s first Premier League defeat of the season, and they find themselves in patchy form ahead of the Everton match. The Toffees find themselves in decent form as they return to the ground where they were thrashed 4-0 in pre-season. Can the Toffees get their revenge this weekend? Check out our review for betting tips ahead of the fixture.

Team News/Form

Man United lost back to back games for the first time this season after a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa. They previously lost 1-0 to West Ham in the EFL Cup and suffered another 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League. Everton bounced beat Norwich 2-0 at home to end their two-match losing streak. Luke Shaw could return for United after a recent knock. Harry Maguire (calf), Amad Traore (thigh) and Marcus Rashford (shoulder) will not feature. Richarlison (knee), Seamus Coleman (thigh), Fabian Delph (shoulder), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (thigh), Andre Gomes (calf) and Jordan Pickford (shoulder) are all sidelined for Everton.

Matchwinner Betting Odds

There is decent value in the outright match winner market for the Man United vs Everton match on Saturday afternoon. Unsurprisingly, the home side are the favourites in the betting markets, as they have won two of their last three Premier League games at Old Trafford. However, there isn’t great value on a home win this weekend, with Betway returning 11/20 odds. An Everton win will lead to better returns, and SBK will return 33/5 for an away victory, but this is unlikely as the Toffees have failed to win in their last seven visits to Old Trafford. Our bet this Saturday is to back a draw between the sides. United and Everton have drawn three of their last five meetings at Old Trafford, and Mansion Bet are offering good value odds at 17/5.

Under/Over Goals

Additional value can be found in the under/over total goals market in the Man United vs Everton fixture. This fixture has produced some high-scoring affairs in recent years, and a low scorer is unlikely. There is some value on backing under 2.5 goals. United have seen in their last two matches, and Betfred will return 11/10 odds for under 2.5 goals. But our tip is to go higher in the total goals market and select an over 3.5 goals bet. Four or more goals have been scored in four of the last six meetings between United and Everton. The Toffees have also seen over 3.5 goals in two of their last four, so Betfair’s 11/5 odds represent excellent potential.

Anytime Goalscorer

With goals expected this weekend, the anytime goalscorer market is another good option. Everton have found the net regularly this season, and certain players have taken the goal-scoring mantle from talisman Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Andros Townsend has four goals in eight appearances this season and scored in the 2-0 win against Norwich. Paddy Power will return excellent value on another Townsend goal on Saturday, with odds of 15/2.  Demarai Gray is another good option as an anytime goalscorer. The striker has hit the ground running at Everton, netting three in his last five, and Betfair are offering 13/2 odds for Gray to score again. One player that United need in their current slump is Cristiano Ronaldo, and the Portuguese cannot be ignored in the anytime goalscorer market. Ronaldo already has four goals in four matches for United, and Sky Bet will return odds of 5/6 for another striker from the Portuguese.

Even at this early stage of the season, United and Everton could go top of the Premier League with a win at Old Trafford this weekend. Goals could be on the cards if recent meetings are anything to judge this match on, and there could be plenty of excitement this weekend.
