700 million Euros spent for players after the Sir Alex Ferguson‘s era in Manchester United and the team doesn’t look like anything. Most probably this was the feeling of every Red Devil fan when they watched the first game of the season in the Premier League against Leicester. Despite winning by 2:1 over the champions from three seasons ago, the United of Jose Mourinho in no way looks like a team that can win the championship this year.
The chaos in the team is full. The defender Matteo Darmian, who announced that he wanted to leave the team two weeks ago was in the starting eleven. In attack Marcus Rashford was lost somewhere between Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata. In the midfield, Paul Pogba is doing his best to get a transfer to Barcelona. The word that summarizes everything in Manchester United at this point is a confusion.
That’s why the match against Brighton away doesn’t seems to be a great one. Of course it is not because the hosts in the match started the season well. The loss against Watford away was certainly not expected, but now the hosts know they have all the chances to get something out of the match against United.
The odds offered by the bookmakers are in favor of the guests, with bet365 offering 1.72 for an United’s win. The draw is estimated at 3.5 and exactly 5 is the odds for the hosts to win the match. This can surely be used by those who like to bet on the Premier League matches, as this odds score for an away win seems a bit overpriced.
So, if we look at the odds offered for Asian Handicap, we will see that the offer of a home win in this match with a predetermined advantage of one goal is 1.6. This, though low coefficient is certainly a value bet.
For those who would like to gamble with better odds, the bet for a draw in the match certainly seems to be reasonably well grounded. However we will stick to the Asian lines options.
