Manchester United are expected to take advantage of Hull’s shocking record against top-ten Premier League teams this season to post a victory in a match of over 2.5 goals.
Only Fulham have a worse record against such foes than Hull this term, with Steve Bruce’s men pilfering just eight points from 18 games against the denizens of the division’s business class.
United are 3/10 jollies for Tottenham-bothering maximum reward, with the Tigers 8/1 outsiders and the draw a 15/4 shout.
The price on a Red Devils victory is a far from miserly offering given their visitors’ travails against the division’s stronger sides.
Yet, Ryan Giggs’ charges average 2.36 goals per game against bottom-half sides by themselves, making odds of 87/100 about a home win/over 2.5 match goals double a further risk worth taking.

Punters all aboard the 87/100-rated train to a high scoring Old Trafford ‘school’s-out’ can take heart from Hull’s recent road-going generosity.
Three of the Tigers’ last four away games have seen over 2.5 match goals as they shipped at least twice against West Ham, Fulham and Aston Villa.
It’s form that has the undeniable odour of waning focus, a pong only enhanced by their tame surrender to Arsenal in the last game witnessed at the KC Stadium.
Hardly a byword for irresistible attacking, the Hammers rate the highest-scoring side among Hull’s recent hosts, with a modest mean of 1.31 goals per home game this term.
Against a Manchester United side that welcome two-time reigning Premier League top goalscorer Robin van Persie back into contention, the punishment could be far more severe.
The Dutchman has hit 17 goals in 28 starts across all competitions this term and he can be backed to notch at 3/5.
