Steam into Man U for your free bet
MANCHESTER UNITED are tipped at 2/5 to beat Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Saturday evening – and canny punters will bag a free correct score bet to boost their potential profits.
While nothing’s guaranteed in football – as Tuesday’s 4-4 draw at Anfield showed – Man U look great value even at that short price to pick up all three points and take another step to retaining their Premier League crown.
2/5 shots don’t normally make the most exciting betting tips, but this one comes with the potential bonus of our Bet-One-Get-One-Free offer.
My tip to anyone betting on Man U v Spurs is to stick your £20 on a Man U win. That’ll qualify you for a free in-play correct score bet on the game – which is either a chance to claw back your losses if this tip looks like it’s dead in the water, or add to your profits using your expert reading of the game.
This isn't me spinning the company line here; I genuinely think this is a cracking offer and if I was a customer I'd be all over it.
I fully expect Man U to win: in part because Spurs have nothing to play for, but also because, despite their recent wobbles, I think United can put out the best first XI in the country when they need to. This will be one of those games; put Spurs to the sword here and the title is as good as theirs and they can concentrate on retaining the Champions League as well.
This is potentially the easiest game of their run-in and they won’t want added pressure in home games against Arsenal and Man City and away at relegation scrappers Middlesbrough and Hull.
As to the free correct score bet in-play, I wouldn’t rule out a Spurs goal. Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko are proven quality, and I’m a huge fan of Darren Bent. United are no strangers to coming from behind and if Spurs score first I’d be looking to get a big price on the Red Devils winning 2-1 or 3-1.
It’s a bet to nothing, but I don’t mind taking a bit of a gamble with a free bet. In the mean time, £20 on United to win returns £28 and I’ll settle on that for starters.
