24/02 Daily Tips: Manchester United vs Fulham Bets Tips

Betting Tips 

In the dynamic world of Premier League football, Manchester United and Manchester City find themselves at pivotal moments in their respective campaigns. United, riding a wave of five consecutive wins across all competitions, is demonstrating a fierce determination to reclaim their spot in the Champions League. Their recent performances, though not without vulnerability, highlight a team with the potential to dazzle and dominate, albeit inconsistently. 

The upcoming challenge against Fulham at Old Trafford presents an intriguing test, with Fulham’s road woes and the absence of key player Joao Palhinha potentially tipping the scales in United’s favor. Yet, Fulham’s knack for counter-attacks and set pieces could exploit United’s defensive gaps, making the match an unpredictable affair.

On the other side, Manchester City’s recent struggles to clinch early leads have sparked concerns, despite their historical dominance over Bournemouth. With key players like Kevin De Bruyne returning to the fold, City aims to overcome their recent hiccup in form and maintain their impressive away win streak. Bournemouth’s resilience and early scoring ability, however, pose a significant challenge to City’s aspirations for a straightforward victory.

Both matches are top clashes featuring stars from all over the world. However, as bettors, what matters most is what are the most likely outcome for these games.  Also, Not just on these two games, TopbetsSA picks the top five betting fixtures you can place your money on, plus extra tips for our readers.     

Manchester United vs Fulham

Manchester United’s current form suggests they are on a strong winning streak, having secured five consecutive victories across all competitions, underscoring their ambition to secure a Champions League spot once again. Despite not always being convincing, as seen in their recent win against Luton, where they showed brilliance for a brief period before the game took a dramatic turn, United’s tendency to play in bursts has left them vulnerable, especially when leading.

Fulham’s challenge at Old Trafford may be heightened by their struggles on the road this season and the absence of Joao Palhinha, their leading away scorer, due to suspension. This absence could significantly shift the game’s dynamics in Manchester United’s favor, despite their midfield showing signs of improvement but still showing potential weaknesses.

Fulham, however, still poses a threat on counter-attacks or set pieces, given United’s recent defensive record of just one clean sheet in eight league matches. Yet, United’s Rasmus Hojlund is in exceptional form, making him a strong candidate for any time goalscorer bets. His impressive goal conversion rate and United’s prolific scoring form make betting on him an appealing option, despite the expectation that his extraordinary strike rate may not last indefinitely.

Verdict:

Manchester United has secured victories in three of their last five home league matches, each featuring more than 2.5 goals. On the other hand, Fulham has faced defeat in five of their recent six away league games, with four of those losses seeing a minimum of three goals scored.

Tip: We expect Both Teams to Score in this game 

AFC Bournemouth vs Manchester City

Manchester City has faced challenges securing their points recently, requiring patience from their supporters, especially in the upcoming match against Bournemouth. Despite a draw against Chelsea and a narrow victory over Brentford thanks to a late goal by Erling Haaland, City’s performance has raised concerns for Pep Guardiola, as his team is not securing early leads as they typically would.

Historically, City has dominated Bournemouth, winning 14 straight matches since the 2000s, often by comfortable margins. However, recent performances might make some hesitant to expect a decisive victory this time around. The return of Kevin De Bruyne, rested in the last game, could be pivotal. His partnership with Haaland is crucial, especially as Haaland seeks to bounce back from a minor dip in form.

City’s away record remains strong with four consecutive wins, though they haven’t led at halftime in these matches. Bournemouth, under Andoni Iraola, has shown resilience, often scoring early and maintaining level scores by halftime in their home games. Given City’s recent trend of conceding away goals, Bournemouth might find the net early.

However, the smart bet might be on City to win after an even first half, reflecting their recent pattern of second-half comebacks in the league.

Verdict

In three of their last four Premier League matches, Manchester City were tied at halftime but went on to win each game. Similarly, Bournemouth has seen a level score at halftime in five of their last six home league matches, yet they have faced defeat in their last 14 encounters with Manchester City.
