Manchester United vs Tottenham - 8/27/18 English Premier League Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Manchester United and Tottenham will meet at Old Trafford as both teams play each other in the third round of the English Premier League. Both these teams are filled with great players and have the potential to play incredible football. This should ensure we are able to watch a great game.

Things have started to go badly at Manchester United as the loss to Brighton last weekend seems to have lit a match in the tinder brewing. The manager is fighting with the player and the board is very unhappy. It was a very poor performance by Manchester United and they were outplayed by a much weaker club. With the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City winning, it has pushed the Red Devils down the pecking order and that is not what is desired by a club the size of Manchester United. Winning against Tottenham will make things right but it will be hard since there is lots of internal tension.

On the other side of the coin, Tottenham are looking very strong. Spurs added no players during the summer and while that could have caused problems, it hasn’t since the team is winning games. There is a great chemistry in the team and they are looking like they will be challenging for the top 4 once again this season. This is a great time to play Manchester United since things are poor for the Red Devils. I am expecting Tottenham to take full advantage of that.

While this may seem like a bold move but I am going to pick Tottenham to win away from. I think there is too much tension and bad energy at Manchester United and that will cause the Red Devils to perform badly and lose to a very talented Tottenham side. We are getting a great price to wager on Tottenham winning so that is the bet which I will suggest we make.
