TODAY'S BEST BET | FEBRUARY 8
We’re heading to England and the Premier League for today’s best bet as Burnley look to jump off the bottom of the ladder when they face heavyweights Manchester United.
Burnley start this matchday two points behind Newcastle and Watford at rock bottom. However, they have two games in hand on both of those sides, with a win here pushing them out of the relegation zone.
The Clarets have managed just one win this season, which came against newly promoted Brentford in October last year, including a 3-1 defeat at the hands of their midweek opponent.
Meanwhile, it’s been a completely different form guide for the Red Devils. They have lost just one of their last 10 league matches, and on the back of two league triumphs. The latest of those being without conceding against a high-flying West Ham outfit.
It is more than common for both teams not to score in this tie, as 14 of the previous 19 meetings finishing with just one or no team scoring throughout the match. Manchester United won nine of those matches, with two draws.
Understandably, Manchester United are around $1.57 favourites to win this, but we can get some more value by adding in the total goals market.
Sean Dyche’s side have been notorious for low-scoring games for many seasons – there has been a total of 43 combined goals in all their matches this campaign, the lowest of any side in the competition.
In fact, a team has failed to score in five of their last seven league matches.
Manchester United to get the job done in a low-scoring match looks like some solid value overnight.
- Man Utd have won their last two matches
- Man Utd have lost just one of their last 10 league games
- 14 of the last 19 meetings has seen both teams fail to score
- Burnley have the lowest combined goals (GF & GA) of any team in the league
- Burnley have won one match this season
