Manchester United will be seeking a fourth straight win when Stoke visit Old Trafford as they set about consolidating a place in the top-four.
The Red Devils are heavily fancied to prevail at 4/9 with Stoke, who have lost their last 11 games in all competitions at the Theatre of Dreams, valued at 25/4 next to a 13/4-rated draw.
With the match-betting spread so prominently favouring one party, punters seeking a sizeable payday may have to look elsewhere, and the goalscorer markets offering the best value.
One player in particular stands out: Robin van Persie.
The Dutch marksman is 13/4 to open the scoring with bwin, who are offering new customers a £30 free bet for signing up.
Stake it on the former Arsenal man to be the first net bulger here to trouser a £97.50 profit.
After coming under fire for his recent performances, RVP unleashed a thunderbolt against Hull that served to prove that he can indeed still kick it.
The 31-year-old picked the ideal time to get back amongst the goals, with a favourite plaything of his staring down the barrel next.
Van Persie has plundered a staggering ten goals in nine meetings with the Staffordshire side, including in all four of his appearances against them in United colours.
While he hasn’t been stockpiling the strikes with the usual fervour this term, Van Persie has tended to deliver when it has mattered.
Of his four goals, one proved to be the winner against West Ham, while another was an injury-time equaliser when Chelsea were in town.
This would suggest Van Persie hasn’t been the peripheral figure he has occasionally been portrayed this term and must be backed to notch against the Potters.
If his first goalscorer price doesn’t land, the even money about an anytime strike surely will.
