Premier League Betting Tips Today

What a difference a game makes. It seems like mere moments have passed since Manchester United looked to be in a downhill spiral in the Premier League they could not crawl out of. The key question for our Premier League predictions today is whether a singular win represents a serious change in form, or just a ray of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy season.

Standing across the pitch from them will not only be their fiercest rivals but an intimidating sight for even the finest teams in English football: the defending champions Manchester City. They’re a team who themselves are scrambling to maintain their position in this season’s title fight. Who has the edge in this impassioned contest? That’s what our Premier League predictions are here to find out.

Victory Over Spurs Sparks Hopes For Man United

Considering the sad state of Manchester United’s Premier League season – one which saw them fall to Liverpool 5-0 as a kind of crescendo of misery – their Spurs victory was a comeback which could not have come at a more opportune time. Sure, they had the talent,  but it took a 3-0 win against Spurs for Manchester United to finally click as a team.

Ronaldo may have been the catalyst for so many great things in this game, but he was far from the only factor. Cavani was arguably even better, Fernandes provided ample support and Rashford was the perfect finishing touch. The question for this Premier League prediction weekend though is how much of your bet you can base on that single performance.

Man City Look to Shrug Off Recent Losses

How quickly the swing of momentum impacts Premier League tips betting. Mere weeks ago, almost all Premier League tips predictions would almost certainly have seen City as clear favourites. Now there’s doubters. First, they were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by an overachieving West Ham squad before an upset 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace. There was no bad luck here – not much to claim as an exceptional circumstance. It was just a rare case of poor defending.

But let’s not jump the gun this Premier League prediction weekend. A few bad games don’t delete the achievements of a team of this quality. Man City are still defending champions, still in the top three and remain a threat to any side in the league.

Head to Head

It’s fair to say that Manchester United and Manchester City have a storied history in the same way that a beach might be said to contain a grain or two of sand. But what matters most for our Premier League predictions today?

We’d say the most important consideration would be those games that have taken place in the last few years. Their last two recent outings – both in 2021 – saw each team score a 2-0 victory over the other. Neither has budged an inch in terms of momentum in their most recent games. United got two games to City’s one in 2020, so they have a slight edge but barely.

Our Betting Tip for Today

As our opinion on the match winner seems to be very much in line with the bookmakers, we’re going to have to look elsewhere for decent odds. That means our Premier League predictions today is for Cristiano Ronaldo to score anytime.

United Likely to Unleash Their New Favourite Weapon

To be clear, we would be backing Manchester City to win this one – and that was our initial instinct when it came to this Premier League prediction weekend. Unfortunately, the bookmakers appear to very much agree with us. That means we could only find what we felt were poor quality odds for that market this Premier League prediction weekend.

Looking elsewhere, we were surprised to see that odds for Cristiano Ronaldo translated to a little over a third of a chance. Considering how effective he has been for United lately and his ability to rise to the challenge of big games, we’d consider a Ronaldo goal here to be very likely – even with City’s usually excellent defences. We’re skeptical over whether the goal will lead to  anything other than defeat for United, but we do think Ronaldo is likely to score at some point. So, our Premier League predictions top pick is to back Ronaldo to score anytime.
