Sunderland take on Manchester United this weekend at the Stadium of Light in what is an important game for both the teams involved. That being said, the two teams are at opposite ends of the table and on paper it seems like it should be very one sided. In my opinion this will not be the case since Manchester United fail to convince me week in week out so I shall be interested to watch this game.
Manchester United managed to get an away draw at Stamford Bridge last week as Chelsea equalized their 1 goal lead very late in the game. This will be playing on the minds of the Red Devil players and they will be a little low going into this match. In my opinion United are not going to make the Champions League spots so I am not sure how well they will do so at the moment it is very hard for me to bet on them to win.
Sunderland on the other hand are looking to get out of the drop area and I think they will fancy themselves to get something out of this match considering that they are at home. This team managed to get a draw against Liverpool so they have belief and in this game that means a whole lot. Too be honest though, even they are too hard to back so I am not sure how this game is going to end up.
As far as betting goes though there is still a lot of value in the match. The goal line is a good option since United generally play a dull sort of game so 1-0, 0-0, 1-1 or 2-0 results are all very possible. This is paying well enough 2 ways so that is going to be my bet for this game.
