Football betting fans can get their teeth into some great pre-season action tonight as Manchester United take on New England Revolution.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has a 21-man squad to choose from for the clash, with Ashley Young set to make his debut after his big-money move from Aston Villa.
Although fellow new boys Phil Jones and goalkeeper David de Gea are yet to join up with the travelling Red Devils party in the US, Ferguson’s side are rated at odds of 3/10 to triumph at the Gillette Stadium.
The Revs, who are managed by former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol, are currently having a poor domestic season, sitting second bottom of the MLS with just three victories in 18 games.
Indeed, they have not registered a win since March and could be without familiar faces such as former Newcastle defender Didier Domi and ex-Man City midfielder Ousmane Dabo for the fixture against United.
Having said that, three draws in their past four matches suggests a slight upturn in form and they have only been beaten twice in front of their own fans this term.
With that in mind, bwin’s football betting odds of 13/2 on a New England victory could prove tempting for some punters, while the draw may also appeal at 15/4.
Interestingly, a closer look at the formbook shows that the Revs have scored only eight and conceded the same number in their nine home games in the MLS to date.
And with United likely to be leggy in their first run-out since their Champions League final defeat to Barcelona in May, a strong case can be made for the clash being a relatively low-scoring affair.
As a result, the under 2.5 goals selection in bwin’s football betting markets for the match, which is priced at 7/5, should find plenty of support.

Meanwhile, punters who believe both teams will score can back their prediction at 3/4, with one or neither team to score available at 19/20.
Recommended bet: Under 2.5 goals at 7/5
