Bolton Wanders are the latest team to take on the unenviable task of putting an end to Manchester United’s winning run in the Premier League.
The defending champions have won their first three games of the 2011-12 season and are favourites at 2/5 to make it four wins in a row in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
Meanwhile, the Trotters are priced at 7/1 to claim all three points and odds of 33/10 are available for the draw.
However, with Sir Alex Ferguson’s side in such potent attacking form, a draw or win looks to be beyond Bolton.
This has certainly been the case in the past, with United having won 11 of the last 13 meetings between the two teams.
To make matters worse for Owen Coyle’s side they do not go into the game in the best of form, with just a solitary win recorded in their last eight games.
Bolton’s defence is the biggest cause for concern, with three goals let in in each of their last two games and more goals conceded than scored last season.
United look well placed to take advantage of this deficiency having struck 13 times in the league so far and with Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young looking dangerous in the final third.
All three of their matches have contained at least three goals, suggesting a bet on there to be more than 2.5 goals in the game is something of a banker at odds of 13/20.
Alternatively, punters could back Man United to win and for there to be more than 2.5 goals in the match at evens.
At these odds, a successful £25 free bet will see punters earn themselves £50, with the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
For those looking for more attractive returns, consider betting on there to be at least three goals in the second half at odds of 11/4.
This is based on the fact that United have hit the back of the net nine times after the interval so far this season, while five of the seven goals scored by Bolton have come after the break.
As for the final score, with United expected to score at least three times but having conceded in their only away match so far this season, a 3-1 victory for the Red Devils looks tempting at 10/1.
