United favorites to snatch three points at DW Stadium

United look terrific value at 1.57 with Betfred to beat Wigan at the DW Stadium.

The Red Devils have traditionally filled their boots against Roberto Martinez’s men, and this represents a golden opportunity for them to maintain their healthy lead at the top of the table between them and their nearest pursuers City.

OK, Wigan did manage to secure their top-flight survival when they won this fixture 1-0 back in April.

However they were on a tremendous run at the time and had not managed to secure a single point from 14 previous encounters with United netting 46 times compared to the Latics’ 5.

Indeed it was a case of normal service resumed when they last met at Old Trafford, with Sir Alex’s men registering an easy 4-0 success.

It would be no surprise to see United register a repeat of that scoreline in this, and it is priced up at 23 with Betfred.

However Wigan may well be capable of getting on the scoresheet, and I like the look of a 3-1 or 4-1 win for United at 12 and 21 respectively with bet365.

Robin van Persie, who came off the subs bench to score in United’s 2-0 win over West Brom looks a solid favourite at 4 with Coral and Ladbrokes in the first goalscorer market, and cracking value at a standout 1.8 with Boylesports just to get on the scoresheet.

The other standout punt has to be over 2.5 goals which is a 1.57 shot with bet365 and Betfred and looks a gimme given United’s recent goalscoring exploits.
