Manchester United vs Stoke Premier League – betting tips and preview

Man U vs StokeManchester United will play against Stoke today in Premier League at 16:00 GMT at Old Trafford. In the match today Manchester United is looking to secure their fourth consecutive Premier League title, but they need help from Wigan in their away match at Stamford Bridge versus Chelsea. Wigan did win the first encounter versus Chelsea 3-1 and United will cross all fingers that Wigan can replicate some kind of that result, which would give Manchester United the title with a win over Stoke.

Stoke doing well

Stoke has been playing well lately and the match is not a lock for Manchester United at all despite United having the best defense in the Premier League and Stoke being one of the teams scoring fewest goals away.
Betting on Manchester United today is not something we recommend from the very beginning of the match. The longer Stoke can keep Manchester from a leading goal the more interesting betting on this game could turn out to be. As long as Stoke maintain the draw they will benefit, if Chelsea manage to take a commanding lead in their game versus Wigan. Chelsea could very well lead with two or three by half time in which case Manchester United will understand the title race is over.

We recommend punters to wait betting on this game and closely follow the Chelsea result. Opening a Betfair account and preparing to lay Manchester is a great game plan today. Manchester will remain at below 1.17 as long as there is no scoring in the game and even a 1-0 lead to the Manchester team could turn out to be extremely profitable, if Chelsea secure their win early on in their match. United is a great team, but the disappointment of seeing the trophy slipping away could be enormous and have some effect in the game today.

Likely draw for United

A United draw is a lot more likely than a Chelsea draw and especially if the title is no longer a possibility.

We recommend to lay Manchester United in any instance, where the score in Manchester United Stoke is 0-0 or 1-0 and at the same time Chelsea are leading by 2. Punters who like to back favorites should be fairly careful with this game and the current odds that can be found around 1.1 should not be played as singles nor should it be used in any parlay betting. Chelsea surely is the better pick in parlays today.
