Betting Preview: Manchester United vs. Leicester City

Leicester City have a fantastic opportunity to impress against Manchester United in their Premier League opener on Friday evening (8pm BST kick-off).

As Claude Puel takes his Foxes outfit to Old Trafford to take on the 20-time English champions, here are your tips for Friday's game from your official betting partner Ladbrokes...

Nailed on...

This could be a tight and close encounter as both sides are unlikely to have a full complement to choose from.

United could be without a host of big names and, with so many attacking talents probably missing, Under 3.5 Goals at 3/10 could be worth a bet.

Smart Money...

Despite the absence of star names, there will still be plenty of exciting attacking talent on show. For United, Alexis Sanchez, Marcus Rashford, and Juan Mata could lead the line.

The Foxes opened the campaign last season in a famous thriller at Emirates against Arsenal. Despite that 4-3 defeat, they so nearly came away with a big win.

Getting on the score sheet is likely again here. Both Teams To Score is 23/20.

Long Shots

City are 7/2 to win in the Draw No Bet market. That means you’ll get your stake back if they bag a draw and you’re quids-in if they manage a famous win.

Jonny Evans was a fantastic pick-up for Puel over the summer. The Northern Ireland defender is dangerous from set-pieces and it would surprise no one if he notched against his former club.

Evans is 14/1 to Score Anytime.
