FOOTBALL BETTING: Live On Sky Sports 1: Sun: 13:30
Man United host Fulham then it’s Sunderland V Man City in this afternoon’s televised Premier League matches. Chris Hutcheon previews the action.
United entertain Fulham this aftenoon seeking revenge for a comprehensive defeat at Craven Cottage back in December and they are 1/4 at Paddy Power to return the favour.
That price reflects the likely superiority of the hosts, who are set to capitalise on both the fatigue of the Cottagers following their trip to Juventus and the poor away record of Jaxx.com’s 12/1 outsiders.
A home win by at least two clear goals at 3/4 with bet365 therefore possesses plenty of appeal and punters wishing to push the boat out a little further can back Fergie’s troops at 7/1 (Totesport) to overcome Fulham by the exact same 3-0 scoreline that Roy Hodgson’s team registered in that reverse fixture before Christmas.
Wayne Rooney has struck eleven goals in the ten league matches since that West London defeat and the England striker is difficult to overlook at 11/4 with William Hill to notch first, although a safer bet is Stan James’ 4/5 for Rooney to notch at any time.
Meanwhile, at the other end, a clean sheet looks likely for the hosts, who are a tasty 4/5 courtesy of Partybets to prevail without conceding.
At the Stadium of Light, Manchester City are Betdaq’s 6/5 favourites ahead of their trip to Sunderland (5/2, Ladbrokes), but the Black Cats will be heartened by Tuesday’s 4-0 win against Bolton, which ended a lengthy winless streak for Steve Bruce’s side and they can hold Roberto Mancini’s men to a draw; a result Betfred chalk up at 23/10.
