Crystal Palace vs Manchester United betting preview

These teams could not be more opposite if they tried right now. Crystal Palace have lost 4 of their last 5 matchups, failing to score in any of those losses, with their lone win coming against Bournemouth on New Years Eve. It should be noted that they did lose to both Chelsea and Tottenham, two games they were never expected to win. But even so, the skid has not been pretty.

Contrastingly, Erik Ten Hag has breathed new life into a previously stagnant Manchester United side. From their first win over Manchester City since March of 2021, to the resurrection of Marcus Rashford and a real title charge, there is a renewed sense of optimism at the Theatre of Dreams as the big results and huge scorelines continue to roll in. A win tonight would make it 10 consecutive wins across all competitions, which would also match the longest streak since 2009.

Marcus Rashford has scored in 7-straight games and is +140 to extend that streak to 8 this evening. However, he did play through a minor injury this past weekend and with Anthony Martial also battling a knock, it wouldn’t be the worst spot in the world to give Burnley loanee, Wout Weghorst, his United debut. He’s +190 to score anytime and Antony should have a much easier time threading lofted passes to the 6’6 striker should he get the starting nod.

Keep an eye on the teamsheets and if Martial isn’t fit enough to start, this is the optimal spot to rest both him and Rashford given the barrage of important games on the horizon.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Betting pick

Betting on whichever United forward starts to score, and over 2.5 goals appears to be a strong bet here. Palace have struggled to find the back of the net over the winter but Wilfred Zaha seems to always pop up against his former team. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a 2-1 Manchester United win here.
