The Betting

Match Result: - All Markets

Burnley 11/2

Draw 29/10

Manchester United 4/7

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

Burnley were terrific in the draw at Old Trafford over Christmas but they seem to have gone off the boil since then and they have yet to takes points off any of the leading sides at Turf Moor this season.

With the above in mind I’m going to take United to score 2 goals or more.

Bet: Man United goals, over 1.5 at 17/20
