Still right in the thick of the battle for the Champions League places, Manchester United have been backed into even money with Stan James to enhance their chances by beating West Ham at Upton Park.
However, the Hammers, betway’s 10/3 outsiders, are a formidable opponent in front of their own supporters and they look decent value at 13/5 via bet365 to earn a point. Strengthening the case for an inconclusive affair is the fact that three of United’s last four on the road in the Premier League have finished all square and a case can certainly be made for a score draw at 15/4 (BetVictor).
More accurately, William Hill go 13/2 about a 1-1 scoreline, the ambitious can tackle Ladbrokes’s 14/1 for it to end two-apiece and for punters wanting a banker it’s 3/4 with BetVictor for both teams to find the net.
United front man Robin van Persie meanwhile, has a good record against West Ham and he might be worth chancing at 5/1 in Paddy Power’s first scorer betting.
