The international break is almost over, which means that domestic European football will be back this weekend. There are plenty of great games scheduled for the next few days, with a Monday encounter also catching the eye. West Bromwich Albion host Manchester United at the Hawthorns on Monday night, with both sides looking to continue the momentum found in recent games. For West Brom, the task is to remain in the top half of the table. United will be looking to make it three wins in a row as they step up a hunt for the top four positions.
The bookies believe that Manchester United are the favorites for this game. Despite being away from home, they have been priced at 3/4 to get the win. Wets Brom are out at 4/1 to get a win, while bookies believe a draw should be priced at 11/4.
If you were to make a safe bet, putting money on Manchester United to win makes sense. The Red Devils look to have found some form of consistency in recent weeks. They fought out for wins over Everton and West Ham, while the likes of Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao are beginning to make a serious impact. They still have defensive concerns, but should be able to score enough goals to defeat West Brom.
For a better who likes to take risks, the draw is a solid bet. The odds of 11/4 are appealing, while there is a decent chance that West Brom will nick something from this game. They are usually very good at home, while United have been a little lackluster away from home. They could only draw at Burnley and Sunderland, while a 3-1 lead was squandered at Leicester where they ended up losing 5-3.
Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie are the favorites to open the scoring in this game. They are priced at 17/4 and 9/2 respectively.
