United travel to the Reebok this weekend, and are not surprisingly long odds-on to maintain their fantastic start to the campaign.
By stark contrast United have bagged 13 goals in three games and with Rooney and Young currently on fire a comfortable victory looks on the cards.
United have won 11 of their last 13 games against Wanderers, and in their current form only a mad man would bet against them.They were brilliant in thrashing Spurs 3-0 and sublime in their 8-2 demolition of Arsenal.
If Manchester United turn up at the Reebok in the same form then this game could be in the bag by half-time. That makes the half time/full time quote of even money (2) about United looks an attractive puting option with Bet365.
Rooney, who has scored in his last four appearances, is once gain favourite with the majority of firms to open the goalscoring and can be backded a top priced 5 – also with Bet365.
That looks a big price for Wazza – providing he starts following his exploits for England in the Euro 2012 qualifiers.
The gaffer could well decide that this is a golden opportunity to give him a rest, but one name that will surely be down on the starting XI is that of Chicarito.
The young Mexican will be keen to get off the mark for the season having worked his way back to fitness, and at 5.4 with Victor Chandler he could be the value in the first goalscorer market as a couple of firms actually have him chalked up as favourite at 4.33.
That’s a big price discrepency, and one which needs taking advantage of.
If you do fancy him to net first then it could also be worth a small investment in him going on to bag a hat-trick. Given the way United are playing it is not an impossibility and you can get 26 with Betfred.
It’s not hard envisage United scoring four or even five in this without reply, and those scorelines throw up some real value.
A small split level stake on both looks the way to play.
