Matchday 1: Manchester United vs. Everton Tips

Manchester United will travel to Goodison Park to play Everton in the last match of “Matchday 1”. The match won’t be played until Monday, August 20th 2012 rather than on Saturday when most teams start their EPL campaigns. Bettors have already been moving the markets this summer and Man Utd will be a big favourite at kick-off.

Will Everton Steal Points at Home vs. Man Utd in Matchday 1?

This is going to be one of the best matches of the 1st weekend of action in the Premier League and it’s fitting that this match is the last match of “Matchday 1”. These two squads played against each other twice last season with Man Utd winning the first match 1-0 (@Everton) and then the two teams drawing 4-4 (@ManUtd).

Last season Everton went 15-11-12 (7th Place) in the Premier League while the Red Devils went 28-5-5 (2nd Place) in the EPL. After losing the title last season Man Utd will be looking to show their fans early on that they mean business. Everton on the other hand has had problems at the start of the season historically and they’re 0-4 in their L4 season openers.

Everton hasn’t done too much during the summer transfer window yet, but they did lose a few players. Cahill and Drenthe were both a big part of Everton’s team success last season and they’re both gone. Looking back at last season’s stats we can see that this match will be close although Man Utd has the firepower to take the full 3 points.

Manchester United averaged 2.30 GPG last season while conceding 0.97 GPG. Everton matched the Red Devils by only allowing an average of 0.97 GPG, but the Blues only scored 1.38 GPG. Everton had balanced scoring, but they don’t have a player that can take over a game on offence like Wayne Rooney can for Man Utd.

I advise punters to bet on Manchester United at 1.95 now because those odds won’t last. Most bookies have already started to lower the match odds on the Red Devils and any value is just about out the window. My best bet for the match is the U2.5 goals at 1.83 odds, which you can bet on at the best mobile sportsbooks Bet365 Mobile.

Everton won’t be backing down in this match at home and they’ll do their best to make a statement here. I won’t be betting on the match odds until closer to the match, but the U2.5 goals is great and the odds won’t last long. Both teams will come out on the cautious side and last year’s score at Goodison (1-0 Man Utd) is what I think this match will end in.

Manchester United vs. Everton Predictions

• Best Bet: U2.5 Goals at 1.83
• Next Best Bet: Man Utd at 1.95
