Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester United Betting Tips

Man United are favourites to win this, but there’s no question the Spurs are capable of springing an upset in this fixture. Home advantage, the sting of defeat to Arsenal and a desire to end their winless streak against United should see the Spurs bring out their A game.

They did well enough to draw with United at their last meeting, and we’re not going to risk out money on the match markets for this reason.

Instead, our Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester United betting tip is to go with a back bet on a high scoring fixture, taking the odds on over 2.75 goals being scored in a match featuring two teams that have scored a cumulative 20 goals in five games.
