Man United: On-Fire on Home Turf

Manchester United will aim to secure its fifth consecutive win across all competitions when it takes on Leeds at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. Since their loss against Arsenal, Manchester United have won their last four matches in all competitions and will look to close the gap on the top two clubs, who lost their previous fixtures.

Manchester United enters this clash on the back of a deserved 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday that helped to close the gap between it and second-place Manchester City to just three points. Erik ten Hag’s attacking approach helped the Red Devils to find the back of the net at least twice in 12 of the last 13 games on home soil, the exception being a 1-0 win over West Ham United in October. A tally of six league goals conceded at Old Trafford is the joint-best home defensive record in the league alongside Newcastle, so we will continue to include Man United in our soccer picks and parlays.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag admits the club will have to “think about” appealing Casemiro’s red card against Crystal Palace. The Brazil international was given his marching orders with 20 minutes remaining on Saturday’s Premier League match. With Scott McTominay still building up his fitness, a full debut should come the way of Marcel Sabitzer after the Bayern Munich loanee came off the bench on Saturday.

Leeds: Marsch Under Pressure

Jesse Marsch is taking responsibility for the difficulties Leeds has been facing in terms of turning performances into results after its latest defeat. Leeds failed to maximize the gap between it and the danger zone when it lost to Nottingham on Sunday. Brennan Johnson scored the only goal of the game inside the opening quarter of an hour.

In the Premier League, Leeds has remained winless since before the World Cup. Having last won a league game on November 5, it is now on a run of seven matches without success. As such, it is now sitting 17th in the standings, level on points with 18th-placed Everton, hovering just above it and the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference, so if you’re betting online, you should start fading it.

Robin Koch will return from a ban for the trip to Old Trafford, but Archie Gray, Rodrigo, Stuart Dallas, Sonny Perkins, and Adam Forshaw all remain in the infirmary. Brenden Aaronson and record signing Georginio Rutter are both expected to start on Wednesday.

Man United vs Leeds Head-to-Head

Seven of Leeds’ last nine away matches in the Premier League have ended in defeat, and its record against teams in the podium spots is poor. Leeds has drawn one and lost seven of its last eight Premier League encounters against sides starting the matchday in the top three.

Man United has picked up 10 points from 12 on offer against Leeds since the visitors earned a promotion back to the top flight in 2020. The Red Devils have scored at least twice in their last four home games and have allowed just six goals at home this term.

Man United vs Leeds Betting Lines

Man United vs Leeds Picks and Prediction

The Red Devils enter this clash as heavy favorites, priced at -205 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at three.

Man United may have lost three of its four Premier League fixtures in which Casemiro has played no part, but Ten Hag’s quality squad will not allow recent history to repeat itself here. Marcus Rashford has scored six goals in his last seven Premier League matches and we expect them to find the back of the net on Wednesday.

Leeds has failed to score in its last two matches in a row and will definitely find it tough to contribute on the scoresheet.

The Man United are listed at -220 in our Vegas Premier League lines. This means that if you wager $100 on Man United, you have a chance to win $45. Leeds United are +560, offering a chance to win $560 on a $100 wager. The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Man United a 68.75% chance to win, with Leeds United at 15.15%.
