In the Premiership buoyant West Ham have edged clear of danger having registered back-to-back home wins but up against the proverbial ‘wounded animal’ in Manchester United, the Hammers are set to emerge empty-handed at Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s men, well beaten by Everton at the weekend, will be smarting and this combined with the potential return of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic at the back makes them a banker at 1/5 with Betdaq.
However, that price leaves little scope for substantial returns and so punters may wish to explore a couple of other more profitable avenues.
The first is the handicap betting, where United are 6/10 (William Hill) to overhaul the Hammers’ mythical goal start and the other is 888Sport’s generous 11/10 for the home side to benefit from a stronger defence to prevail without conceding. At the other end meanwhile, Wayne Rooney is 8/11 courtesy of Stan James, to notch at any stage.
