Manchester United visit St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon for a match that will be shown live on BT Sport from 12.30pm. Here are our top Southampton v Man Utd betting tips.
A Closer Look
This presents the Red Devils with an ideal chance to push themselves up through the pecking order, but the team know they’ll get nothing for free at this venue.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side started the season well enough but suffered a 1-1 draw away to Wolves on Monday 19 August, a match they were expected to win with a bit to spare. Martial scored the opener on 27 minutes but that was cancelled out by a response from Neves on 55, a goal deserving of, at least, a point at any level of football.
Paul Pogba had the chance to win it for his side late in the day but fluffed his lines when missing from the penalty spot. Things aren’t going well for him at the minute and many expected the attacker to leave during the summer transfer window.
Man U Clear Favourites
The pre-match betting for this fixture has Manchester United marked up as favourites for the win and those eager to side with the traders on that one can back the visitors at a decent 19/20, market best price with 10bet. That’s sure to be popular in weekend accumulators. The draw is next in line at 5/2 with Unibet and you can get your hands on 18/5 – top price at Unibet – if you’re bold enough to back the locals.
That’s one for the value hunters but there’s no reason why Southampton can’t win the points in front of their own fans. We’ll aim for a nice price and back both teams to score in a Man Utd win.
