Today’s big game in the Premier League sees third placed Tottenham travel to Old Trafford to take on the team in second, Manchester United.
This game could well determine which of these teams will challenge the other club from Manchester for the league title as the season progresses.
Spurs have been in sparkling form, and come into this game on the back of a 4-1 demolition of Liverpool last weekend. However, they do so without their talisman and leading scorer Harry Kane.
United have to bounce back from their first defeat of the season to Huddersfield last weekend, but have history on their side. They have lost just twice against Spurs in the last 31 meetings at Old Trafford.
We at Lap of the Odds think Spurs will regard a point here as a good result, while United will be wary of giving their opponents room to counter attack. Thus a draw looks the likely option and Manchester City celebrating.
As far as the rest of the day’s football is concerned, we will take advantage of a price boost from SkyBet. They offer 13/2, up from 9/2, that Manchester City, Watford and Wolves will all win this afternoon.
City are playing very well at the moment and should have too much for West Brom, Watford are flying high in sixth position, while Championship side Wolves so very nearly defeated Arsenal in the League Cup midweek.
United/Spurs to draw, 1 pt, at 23/10, widely available
