Betting. Manchester United vs West Ham [30.11.16] : deja vu

Football League Cup

Round of 8


Bet: Total Goals under 3

On Wednesday, November 30, just 3 days after their meeting in Premier League, Manchester United will host West Ham once again. This time the two clubs will compete for the EFL Cup semifinals spot.

Manchester United keep on struggling in the Premier League. Contrary to all sports betting predictions the Red Devils lost points in the home game against West Ham (1-1). It was the 5th draw in the United’s last 7 League matches. So, although betting companies considered Mourinho’s side to be one of the main contenders for the trophy, at this moment the Reds sit on the 6th position with 11 points gap between them and leading Chelsea. A slight relief for the United’s fans is Europa League where the team have good chances to move on to the knockout stage.

As for West Ham, the previous season was quite a success for them. Under the direction of Slaven Bilic the team managed to finish on the 7th place. However, despite the optimistic sports betting predictions for the new season, the Hammers have made an awful start and still can’t get out of the slump in a form. The Londoners sit on the 16th position in the Premier League – just one point above the relegation zone. However, the betting experts note that West Ham haven’t given up their Robin Hood habit. For example, they overcame Chelsea (2-1), drew with MU (1-1) and were close to disappoint Tottenham (2-3).


While choosing a bet you should take into consideration the fact that the Hammers showed a good performance at Old Trafford on Sunday. They even tried to end the match with a win, but the ball wouldn’t hit the net. The betting experts think this midweek EFL Cup game doesn’t come in the right moment for any of the teams as they have a lot of problems to solve in the Premier League. At the same time, both managers are under a lot of pressure and have to get points at any price. After defeating Accrington (1-0) and Chelsea (2-1) the Londoners will be looking to shatter MU. As for Red Devils, they have already beaten Northampton (3-1) and Manchester City (1-0) and will be hoping to get revenge on the Hammers for the recent League draw.

The bookmakers have no doubts in the host’s win: Manchester United – 1,46, Draw – 4,60, West Ham – 6,75. Obviously, Mourinho has a deeper squad and he is likely to bring into play some of his key players giving the fact that on the next Sunday MU is going to play against Everton while West Ham have clashes with Arsenal and then with Liverpool. So the Red Devils are in the more favourable conditions and they are more likely get to the EFL Cup semifinals. It is advisable to bet on “Manchester United or Draw and Total Goals under 3,5” (1,69). The bet “Total Goals under 3” (1,69) is also worth your attention.
