The Tepid Derby – Our Top Manchester United v Liverpool Odds Picks


Have we all woken up from last Sunday’s Liverpool v Manchester United bore-fest?

Okay, it wasn’t that bad, but we over at Odds Manager are goal enthusiasts, and there is only so many 0-0s we are willing to sit through this season.

So, will things change on Sunday?

Knockout football tends to bring a little more drama by its nature, but we’re not convinced these two sides are truly made for each other… 

Check out our top Odds Picks for Sunday’s match including a tasty 6/1 shot.

Our Top Odds Pick – Under 1.5 goals – 3/1 at Unibet

Under 1.5 goals

We’ve got a problem: four of the last nine meetings between these two have finished 0-0.

Now, all you football hipsters will tell us that 0-0s can be as exciting as a 4-4, but we’re simply not buying it!

In fact, this fixture has averaged just 1.5 goals over their last 12 meetings dating back to January 2016 – come on guys, sort it out.

We can’t help but think this derby is going to be close to a repeat of last weekend – the only difference is it’ll be at Old Trafford this time.

Our Long Shot – Edinson Cavani to score first – 6/1 at bet365

Edinson Cavani to score first

If there is to be a goal on Sunday, then our pick is the in-form Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan has impressed in short spells so far at Old Trafford, but should be trusted to lead the line again in the cup.

He’s a goal machine, with a real eye for the net. A sneaky run in behind Liverpool’s makeshift defence could well separate the sides.
