The romance of the FA Cup will have neutrals cheering on League Two strugglers Yeovil against Manchester United on Friday night, but most punters will be betting with their heads, not their hearts.
United have met the Glovers three times before in this competition, prevailing on each occasion by an aggregate score of 13-0.
A Look At Yeovil Town’s Betting Odds
Southampton loanee Marcus Barnes made a dream debut for Yeovil when scoring in a 2-0 win over League One promotion hopefuls Bradford in the last round, just a day after joining the club.
Jordan Green finished off another breakaway goal after the Glovers had been the better team in the first half but were then forced to soak up plenty of pressure following the break.
Manager Darren Way hailed that as “an absolutely extraordinary achievement”, commenting: “An incredible amount of effort and energy has gone into fielding a team, let alone winning a football match.”
However, the harsh reality is that Town are facing a relegation battle in their division after Saturday’s 2-1 loss at home to Chesterfield made it just one point gained from four League Two fixtures.
For those who like multiple correct score options, 3/2 for the Red Devils to prevail 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 appeals from the Yeovil vs Man Utd odds.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United did bow out of the EFL Cup at Bristol City but they have recovered from a shaky festive period to put together a run of four straight clean-sheet victories.
Jose Mourinho’s side are not exactly setting the world alight with an exciting brand of free-flowing football, but they have been clinically efficient of late and they could hand a debut to star signing Alexis Sanchez, who is in the travelling squad.
Derby were beaten 2-0 in this competition, while United have picked up maximum points from their last three Premier League games, including tricky trips to Everton and Burnley.
The Red Devils have only scored before half-time in one of their last six outings, though, so there could be some value in backing Yeovil to hold firm until the interval.
We’re finishing off our Yeovil vs Man Utd betting tips by taking 29/10 for the scores to be level at the break and then the visitors to claim victory.
That is what happened back in 2015, when Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria struck in the second period.
YEOVIL 1-2 Chesterfield – Lewis Wing
Burnley 0-1 MAN UTD – Anthony Martial
Head-to-head: Yeovil 0-2 Man Utd, Man Utd 8-0 Yeovil, Man Utd 3-0 Yeovil
