Don't Expect Many Goals Or Bookings In Man Utd v Fulham

Man Utd have the opportunity to move three points clear at the top of the Premiership tonight after Man City were held at Stoke on Saturday evening and with this game being part of the live Monday Night Football coverage it is sure to be popular from a betting point of view. What does ValueChecker suggest the best bets are in this match?

Man Utd are the short priced favourites but Fulham’s decent form makes them a good bet for this match according to the ValueChecker Value Bets. The ValueChecker Value Bets are recommended based on a statistical analysis of recent form as well as previous meetings between the teams and it looks as though Fulham are a value bet as ValueChecker suggests that the correct odds for Fulham based on form are 3.44 not the 17.00 that is currently available! That is a huge margin and as a result of that price difference Fulham have been assigned a value rating of 0.25 by ValueChecker.

Whatever the scoreline in this match one of the best bets could be on the cards markets. According to both the Man Utd ValueChecker wikis and Fulham ValueChecker wikis these two teams are consistently near the top of the fair play league, in the 10/11 Premiership season Man Utd were 5th in the Fair Play League whilst Fulham were 2nd. The previous season it was a similar story with Man Utd being 3rd in the Fair Play League and Fulham came 1st. Don’t expect too many bookings in this match.

The Fulham ValueChecker wikis also suggest that goals could be at a premium here. Fulham are often involved in low scoring games when they are on their travels, in the 10/11 Premiership season Fulham were involved in more under 2.5 goals games away from home than any other team when 13 of their 19 away matches ended with under 2.5 goals. In the 09/10 season it was slightly less but backing under 2.5 goals in Fulham’s away games would still have been profitable as that result was a winner in 11 of their league games away from home.
