It’s that time of the year when every Manchester United fan is eagerly awaiting the start of the Premier League. Only a few weeks away, many are predicting that this is the year when Manchester United will make a much-needed comeback, taking the top spot that they have won 13 times previously. While the race to the top is not going to be easy, fans are hoping that the players will give it their best as always and make them proud.
The good news right now is that sports events are all set to return after a small break across the world. Whether it is rugby in New Zealand or the Premier League coming out with the season’s schedule, there is excitement aplenty amongst fans and punters. Therefore, it makes sense to look at some of the best bets one can make this year on Manchester United, since picking up wagers early on means better odds and more profits.
The First Game
In what is a small disappointment for fans, Manchester United was earlier scheduled to start the 2020-21 season of the Premier League with a game against Burnley. However, since the break between their Europa League exit and the first game did not add up to the required 30 days, they will now face Crystal Palace on the 19th of September 2020. As a result, punters still have some time to pick up the odds, especially since they can see how Crystal Palace performs on the 12th against Southampton. Nevertheless, United would want to start on the right foot, so expect them to make an extra effort and win this one.
The good thing about Manchester United is that they are very well aware of the determination that goes into winning the Premier League. While arch-rivals Manchester City have been dominating the league for a couple of years, Liverpool having won last time will be once again looking to score big. However, Manchester United is in a great place at present, even after their defeat in the Europa League, and fans can expect good things in the coming months. Bookies have Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side at 14/1 odds which places them amongst the top three teams to win the title. If the club can manage to make the most of their early games and get a good lead on the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea, you would expect them to keep the momentum up.
Top Four Finish
For fans and punters who don’t want to take a more significant risk, while still wanting to bet on Manchester United, can opt for the top four finish wager. The team does typically end up in the top six, but lately, they have been at the height of their game. Moreover, they did come in third during the last season. Bookies have United at 14/1 to be in the top four which is a pretty solid bet to pick up this early on.
Without Manchester City and Liverpool
A more niche wager to aim for is the top team in the Premier League without counting Manchester City and Liverpool. Well, in this case, Manchester United tops the chart amongst predictions from both pundits and bookies. The odds right now are 11/10, but you can always wait and watch a couple of games at first and then make a final call on this one.
