Man Utd vs Crystal Palace Odds: Cash in on a Rangnick masterclass
Ralf Rangnick takes charge of his first game as interim boss of Manchester United on Sunday as they welcome Crystal Palace to Old Trafford at 2pm.
Bookmaker SBK make United best price 59/100 favourites to take all three points which works out at an implied probability of 63% that United will get back to back wins.
Crystal Palace have already picked up a win at the Etihad and a draw at the Emirates this season but their form has been in and out and that's reflected in their Premier League standing, 11th with five wins, five losses and four draws.
Patrick Vieira's side were poor against Leeds on Tuesday night and looked to be settling for a 0-0 draw with a good half an hour left to play. They're likely to play Christian Benteke from the start after he was rested for the majority of Tuesday's game which would be a positive for Palace but at an excited Old Trafford this could be a long afternoon for the south Londoners.
Man Utd v Crystal Palace Tips
Whilst I think Man Utd will dominate proceedings here I can't ignore the price about Diego Dalot to be booked on Sunday.
The Portuguese full-back is deputising for the injured Aaron Wan Bissaka who likely misses the game through injury. Whilst he played well against Arsenal in the 3-2 win on Thursday, he'll have his hands full here against Wilfried Zaha, the most fouled player in the Premier League this season.
He has one booking this season in the Premier League but has only been involved five times and Zaha's direct running style could cause him problems on the counter, as what happened to Stuart Dallas when booked on Tuesday.
Add into the mix Zaha's gnarly nature, he could start an argument in an empty room and could well try Dalot's patience. 4/1 looks a big price and I'd swap in AWB as well at 7/2 if he does make it back on Sunday up against his former teammate.
- Over 4.5 Man Utd corners
- Over 1.5 Man Utd goals
- Man Utd to have 6 or more shots on target
- Over 1.5 Crystal Palace cards
- Man Utd to win
Next up I've gone for a bet builder with Betfair which brings in a mix of five different bets and pays out around 11/2.
I expect United to be in the ascendancy here off the back of a morale boosting draw at Chelsea and win over Arsenal and with Ralf in the dugout there'll be an eagerness to please and a partizan crowd.
United are averaging 5.1 corners per game in the Premier League this season and 13.6 shots per game. Over 2.5 goals has landed in 57% of their games this season and they scored three at home to Arsenal on Thursday.
Palace picked up three bookings on Tuesday at Leeds and referee Craig Pawson is averaging over 3.5 yellow cards so far this season and 21 fouls per game.
