Manchester United enters this match as the first in the table with 71 points, 12 points ahead of their rivals Manchester City, a home record W13-D0-L1. There’s no team in the history of Premier League, who has lead 10 rounds before the end of the season with 12 points, and later on has lost the battle for the title. United are looking really comfortable, and after being eliminated from Real Madrid in Champions League, after questionable referee decisions the team has only Premier League and FA Cup left. The first match on Old Trafford against Chelsea for FA, ended 2-2, so the game will be replayed in April on Stamford Bridge. Since the Manchester United, can just keep winning in order to secure the title, by the time this replay match comes. Of course the betting odds for Manchester United to win this match are extremely low @ 1.14 and are not worth playing. The Asian Handicap Manchester United -1.5 looks good @ 1.48, if we assume that United will manage to demolish Reading as they have done against Norwich in their last home Premier League game. Success rate of 71% in all tournaments in the last 7 matches, recording 4 victories, 2 draws and a loss, United is the best host this season and will meet the worst visitor.

Reading are coming in this match as the 19th team in the table with 23 points, now tied with QPR for the last spot, and 4 points away from the safety zone. From the looks of it, the team will be one of the relegated ones if they do not manage to gather enough points. Success rate of only 21% in the past 7 games, recoding a draw, a victory and 5 consecutive losses. One of these losses was for the FA Cup, against Manchester United on Old Trafford with 1-2. In the first match this season, the team put up quite the fight at home, but lost the match with 3-4 against the Red Devils. Overall, Reading has no victory against Manchester United in the history of Premier League, recording 3 draws and 5 losses. The betting odds for the team to win this match are @ 19.00, great value but great amount of risk as well. However be careful, as the end of the season is always the time when teams in the relegation zone start to play incredibly good and start winning. If you believe such an upset can occur here will not be a bad idea to back both ways, Reading or Draw @ 6.00. These are however just speculations. Nothing in Reading’s performance or stats even hints on such upset coming up.
Betting tip #1 would be Manchester United to win this match with a 2 goal lead, hence Asian Handicap Manchester United -1.5 @ 1.48.
Betting tip #2 would be this match to end Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.36 just like a few weeks ago, when both teams met here for FA Cup.
Proceed with caution however, as at this time of the season, bottom half teams start playing betting seeking for points from any game!
