Manchester United Betting Preview
Manchester United had a big season last year and a big reason was because of their success at home. They gave up only ten goals total at home, and they are going to need the defense to step up in a big way here again. Manchester United has played some tough warmup games and they are coming off a draw. Manchester United faced off against the Athletic Club and the played to a 1-1 draw. Manchester United had 62 percent of the possession and five shots on target. Manchester United has signed Rasmus Hojlund but he’s dealing with a back injury and is going to be out for a little while more. Kobbie Mainoo, Dean Henderson, Anthony Martial, Tyrell Malacia, Thomas Heaton, and Amad Diallo are all still hurt and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game.
Wolves Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup the Wolves who have looked good so far during the leadup to the season. They have played five games and three of those have been wins, while the other two have been draws. In the last game against Rennes, the offense scored three goals on the way to the victory. During the five games they gave up three goals and that defense is going to be key here. Matheus Cunha is dealing with a minor injury and there is a chance that he’s not going to be able to go in this game. In this game if the defense is good, the Wolves are going to have a chance to secure the victory.
Shane’s Free Pick
I expect the big problem with the Wolves team is going to be the offense again here, and that is going to be the difference here. The Wolves might even put a shot on goal here. Manchester United is going to score at least of couple of goals here, and that will be enough for Manchester United to get the job done. Back Manchester United -1.5 to cash here.
