Everything is amplified in Manchester — that goes for both United and City storylines these days. That’s not to say concern isn’t warranted as far as United is concerned. Losses to Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford, not to mention their -5 goal differential, prompted relegation chatter. Man U haters should not hold their breath. Odds at sportsbooks suggest Manchester United are not likely to be relegated in 2022-23. Those odds could shorten after Monday’s date with Liverpool.

Manchester United Considerations

Manchester United appears in disarray, and understandably so. It’s unreasonable to expect cohesion when there are so many moving parts. The club is on its fourth manager since November 2021. Compare that to Liverpool, a club well-grooved under Jurgen Klopp.

United should have a little extra juice playing Liverpool in front of their home supporters. Emphasis on ‘should’. It doesn’t take a long memory to recall United’s 5-nil drubbing at Liverpool’s hands at Old Trafford in 2021.

Man U may not have the squad to match its reputation, but there is considerable talent. Striker Cristiano Ronaldo is still one of the game’s best at rippling the back of the net; midfielder Bruno Fernandes can create something from next to nothing; and dynamic winger Jadon Sancho has a season of Premier League action under his belt.

Liverpool Considerations

Lost among the Premier League’s juicer headlines is Liverpool’s two-point start to the 2022-23 campaign. It’s been a frustrating two matches for Liverpool, who know as well as anyone how precious every point is. Bettors should expect Klopp’s side to hunt ravenously for all three tallies, and be locked in from the kick-off.

The absence of star striker Darwin Nunez is one of the headlines, but it might not affect the bottom line. Electrifying winger Luis Diaz and three-time Golden Boot winner Mohamed Salah will make the most of their extra touches. Both Diaz and Salah have demonstrated a flair for the dramatic and are in play for goal-scoring props.

Manchester United vs. Liverpool Pick

Our primary pick is Liverpool to win. DraftKings Sportsbook offers -160 odds on Liverpool to claim all three points on Monday.

FanDuel Sportsbook offers +1110 odds on Liverpool leading after the first half. And a parlay on Liverpool winning the first half and second half offers +312 odds. The degree of risk each bettor wants to add to a wager varies, but this isn’t a bad spot to get a little aggressive.

Another consideration is Over 3.5 goals. Liverpool has exceeded 3.5 goals on their own in three of their last four meetings with the Red Devils. If United demonstrate some grit — something we haven’t seen from them — bettors should anticipate a goal or two to keep Liverpool engaged.

Another spineless performance, however, could yield another humiliating defeat. Either scenario appears ripe for plenty of scoring.

Bettors should always shop around the top sports betting apps for the most profitable odds for their bets.
