Why Bet on Manchester United?

It was a very tough week for Manchester United. They came from ecstasy after being crowned champion of the EFL Cup with his 2-0 victory against Newcastle and advancing to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup. Then they fell 7-0 against Liverpool in what was the biggest defeat in all of its history (along with other 7-0 against Blackburn, Aston Villa, and Wolverhampton, but the last was in 1932).

That day the team was a disaster, plus 6 goals were in the second half. The coach Erik Ten Hag referred precisely to those 45 minutes and said that it could not happen again. He concluded that the players were not professional at all and, surely, they received a scolding during the week.

The Red Devils remain in third place in the Premier League with 49 points and one game less than most, so they still have a good advantage over Tottenham (45), Liverpool (42), and Fulham (41). However, they already have to forget about the title fight.

Why Bet on Southampton?

Southampton begins to dream. A few months ago it seemed impossible, but now it is very close to the shore. Over the weekend they beat Leicester 1-0 with a goal from Carlos Alcaraz and managed to rise to 19th place with 21 points, 1 point less than Everton (18th with one more game) and Leeds (17th), 2 points away from West Ham (16th) and 3 from Leicester (15th), so a new victory can finally get them out of relegation.

The Spanish coach Rubén Sellés has had a good performance in the Premier League with 2 wins and 1 loss. In addition, one of those wins was against Chelsea as a visitor (0-1), so the team can dream of a victory at Old Trafford.

The Saints are one of the teams that have scored the fewest goals with only 20.

Final Betting Analysis: Manchester United vs. Southampton

Manchester United have a good opportunity to recalibrate their path and return to victory against an inferior rival, who is fighting not to be relegated. However, we must also take into account that lately Southampton has complicated their rivals and even beat Chelsea and Manchester City, but we believe that it will not be enough and Man U will win.

At we find that Manchester United is the favorite of the match with a Moneyline of -270, while Southampton has +680 and the draw is +420.

The last time they met was on August 27 last year and Manchester United won 0-1 away with a goal from Bruno Fernandes. The Red Devils have an unbeaten record of 14 games against Southampton, which includes a 9-0 win in 2021. The last time the Saints won was on January 23, 2016, precisely at Old Trafford by 0-1.

Go for a straight win for Manchester United in the Moneyline. If you bet $100 on the win at -270, you will gain $37 for a total payout of $137.
