The obvious favourites to win this fixture are last season’s UEFA Cup winners, Man Utd. Jose Mourinho are coming off the back of a loss to Real Madrid in midweek, but they are firm favourites to win here With Best odds of 4/13.
They dropped points in 10 of their 19 home matches last season, including against West Ham, so those odds may be far too short for many punters. They have added to the spine of their team since though and Lindelof, Matic and Lukaku could give this side a further boost.
West Ham are a massive price of 12/1 using our odds comparison service. This highlights the importance of our odds comparison as some bookmakers have the Hammers much shorter at 9/1.
My recommended Man Utd v West Ham tip is to back ‘Romelu Lukaku anytime’ at best odds of 4/5 using our Easyodds odds comparison grid.
This is a far better price than just backing a Man Utd win and he has been scoring goals in pre-season and whilst he has been guilty of a fair share of misses too, I fancy him to open his Man Utd Premier League account against West Ham. He has netted in nine of his last 10 matches against the Hammers!
West Ham will have new loan goalkeeper Joe Hart in goal, but question marks remain over the ability of England’s number one, after a less than spectacular loan spell at Torino last season and the Hammers kept just one clean sheet in pre-season.
In fact, they conceded eight goals in their final three fixtures ahead of their Premier League opener!
Back Romelu Lukaku to score with a best price of 4/5 using the anytime goalscorer market.
Good luck if you choose to back my tip!
I’m not necessarily sure that punters realise the importance of our odds comparison service…
For example, if you fancy Javier Hernandez to score on his debut against his former team, you can get a worst price of 14/5 or a best price of 4/1. Why wouldn’t you use our site to peruse the anytime goalscorer market and ensure you get the best possible odds?
