Man Utd can take one step closer to the Premiership title on Sunday when facing Aston Villa at Old Trafford. Man Utd are now just 1/20 to win a 20th league title after the recent strong form and of course City’s implosion and it is fully expected that both those odds, and the odds on Man Utd beating Aston Villa, will be justified.
Man Utd are pretty short to beat Aston Villa on Sunday at Old Trafford, at the time of writing you can get 2/9 that Man Utd pick up all three points in this match. The draw is the second most likely outcome according to the bookies at 11/2 whilst a fairly out of form Aston Villa side are as big as 14/1 to win this, a sign of their poor season this year. If you want to boost the odds on a United victory then perhaps most will look to the handicap betting where United can be backed at 4/7 giving Aston Villa a two goal head start and 13/8 giving Villa a two goal head start. Alternatively if you fancy United just for a narrow win you can get 16/5 that United win this by just a one goal margin.
Perhaps the best way of boosting the odds in the match on a United win is to back them to win to nil. Man Utd have won their last five league games with clean sheets and Aston Villa don’t look to have much of a goal threat with Darren Bent on the sidelines, in fact none of their players that line up on Sunday will have scored more than five goals this season. At the time of writing Man Utd are 10/11 to win this game to nil and that could prove a very smart bet this weekend.
If looking at the most likely scorelines involving a clean sheet for Man Utd then it is probably 2-0 and 3-0 which most catch the eye. Aston Villa don’t really look good enough to concede just once against United but if you fancy 1-0 it is available at 7/1 but Villa conceded three at Arsenal recently and two at Newcastle which shows how their defence has been performing. The 2-0 correct score is 6/1 whilst 3-0 is 13/2 and it could be worth covering both of those unless you fancy just one of them very strongly. At bigger odds you can get 11/1 on 4-0 and 20/1 on 5-0 and it could be worth noting that United have won two of the last seven league meetings against Aston Villa at Old Trafford by 4-0 scorelines.
With a few goals predicted here the goalscorer odds are going to be very popular but who is the best bet? The goals have been spread about a bit recently but this could be a game in which Wayne Rooney scores a hatful of goals, he is available at 13/5 to score first, just 4/7 to score anytime and 12/1 to score a hat trick. However the best bet could be Ashley Young who looks overpriced at 6/1 to score first and 13/8 to register a goal at anytime against Aston Villa.
