Manchester United will have everything to play for as they host Bournemouth in the final game of the season. United will know that a win is the minimum for them if they are to make the Champions League next season and even that might not be enough. The manager, Louis Van Gaal, is holding onto his job by a cats whisker so for him this is a must win for sure.

Bournemouth have had a good season. They managed to win games and they are safe from relegation so they will have no pressure. This could work in their favor but it will be tough for them to win or draw since their opponents are a club of a different level. That being said, I am expecting Bournemouth to play with freedom and have a good game like they usually do so watching them this weekend will be good.

Manchester United on the other hand will know what is required of them but seeing how they have been playing as of late gives the fans little hope. They should win this game but it is not a certainty and that is what has been the disappointing part of the Red Devils season. It is difficult to bet against them winning but it is also so hard to bet with them.

I think betting on the goal line is the best way to go in this game. United nor Bournemouth have many goals in them and I think 1-1 or 1-0 result is likely. We are getting a decent price so I think it is worth it. In addition to this, putting money on Anthony Martial to score is also a good wager since he is the only player for United who is even getting close to scoring so this also seems like a pretty good wager.

Pick:
Under 2.5 Goals
