Tottenham vs. Manchester United betting odds, match preview, prediction

Alex Livesey

The Spurs were smashed last time out vs Man U, but they are home and slight EPL betting favorites this weekend.

The Spurs come into this match with their tails between their legs after getting throttled in their last match losing 6-0 to Manchester City.

The six goals the Spurs gave up was the total they had given up in their previous 11 league matches. However, they are back at home this weekend and only slight betting underdogs facing a Manchester United squad that is coming off a surprising draw.

Midweek, most sportsbooks monitored by the new soccer odds section were giving the slight betting edge to Man U at +160 with Tottenham at +163 and a draw line at +230.

Man U could have been all-alone in fourth place in the EPL table, but played to a 2-2 draw against 15th place side Cardiff. What makes the draw even harder to take for Man U is that they gave up the equalizing goal in injury time. The EPL odds on this match continue to move around as the weekend clash looms.

Tottenham is in ninth place in the league table eight points back of league leader Arsenal. The Spurs have to forget about the City match and get back to playing solid defense, as their offense has only scored nine goals in 11 matches.

Even with the disappointing draw against Cardiff Man U is still unbeaten in their last 10 matches.

While the Spurs were crushed against City they won the time of possession battle (53% to 47%) and only had two fewer shots.

Last season at Tottenham these teams played to a 1-1 draw.

The Spurs could not keep EPL leading scorer Sergio Agüero in check in their bad loss allowing him to score two goals. In this match they must key on Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney, who are among the league leaders in goals and have combined for 13 on the season
