The Europa League could be in for it’s biggest season to date with both Man Utd and Man City dropping out of the Champions League at the group stage. Both Manchester clubs are in action tonight in the Europa League, what are the best bets for these matches according to ValueChecker?

The ValueChecker Value Bets have highlighted bets in both matches. In the Man Utd game at Ajax the away win has been highlighted as a value bet by ValueChecker. The odds currently available on Man Utd are around 1.84 but ValueChecker thinks that the price should be more like 1.74 and because of that price difference it has been assigned a value rating of 0.35. As for the game between FC Porto and Man City, the value bet in that match should be under 2.5 goals. These value bets are determined by a statistical analysis of previous results and it looks as though under 2.5 goals should be more like 1.69 than 1.83 which means that bet has been given a value rating of 0.37.

The Man Utd ValueChecker wikis suggest that Man Utd could be a good bet against Ajax as they have a good record against the better teams on a domestic level. Last season Man Utd performed the best out of all the Premiership teams against the eventual top half opposition, they picked up 33 points in the eighteen matches whilst the season before they also picked up 33 points. Ajax may not be a Premiership team but they’d certainly be a top half team if they played in the Premiership so this could be an important wiki to take notice of.

There could also be a good half time bet in the game in Amsterdam according to the Man Utd Wikis, they show that Man Utd tend to be drawing at half time away from home more often than not despite their eventual dominance of many teams. Last season Man Utd were drawing ten away matches at half time in the Premiership whilst the season before it was ten games again that were all square at the interval. If Man Utd are going to win this match Draw/Man Utd could be a smart bet here.
