Fresh off of an impressive 4-1 win at home over Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur will be on the road this Saturday to take on Manchester United. Both teams have only one loss on their records this season with matching 6-1-2 marks through the first nine games of English Premier League action.
Tottenham Hotspur is a +245 underdog to win outright on the road at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com, with Manchester United going off at +115 at home and draw odds in this game paying +220. This series has been an even one at 4-4-3 in the last 11 meetings between these two clubs, a far cry from the one-sided 21-0-5 it was in Manchester United’s favor from 2001 to 2012.
Since starting off the Premier League season with a 6-0-1 run, Manchester United has cooled off considerably. Manchester United played to a 0-0 draw against Liverpool and lost outright to Huddersfield Town 2-1 last Saturday. A return home could help spark the team as Manchester United is a perfect 4-0 this season and outscoring opponents 14-0 at Old Trafford.
With Manchester United’s loss last week, Manchester City stands as the only remaining unbeaten team in the English Premier League with an 8-0-1 record. Manchester City is a -425 road favorite on Saturday against West Bromwich Albion (+1000 to win, +525 to force a draw). West Brom is 0-12 in its last 12 games against Manchester City.
Manchester City also remains the betting favorite at -550 on the EPL championship odds.
Chelsea hasn’t been a particularly safe bet as a big favorite this season, losing outright to Burnley at home in its first game and to the previously winless Crystal Palace on the road on October 14. The team will be a -170 road favorite this Saturday against a Bournemouth club that sits in 19th place on the EPL table with a 2-6-1 record. Bournemouth is going off at +450 to win and +310 to play to a draw.
Rounding out the Top 6 in the standings, Arsenal is a -475 favorite hosting Swansea City (+1100 to win, +550 to draw) and Watford is a +100 favorite at home against Stoke City (+265 to win, +240 to draw). Swansea City lost both of its games to Arsenal last season but was 3-1-1 in its previous five games against the Gunners.
