A Man United goalfest among the three best bets for Hull clash

| 05.05.2014

Manchester United’s final home game of the season against Hull City looks likely to be a precession even before the customary lap of honour that will follow the final whistle takes place.

Steve Bruce’s men have an FA Cup final to save themselves for, so for a stream of departing United players – some definite others possible – a leisurely final appearance awaits the likes of Nemanja Vidic and even Ryan Giggs.

Whether it’s a token gesture of a fixture or not, there’s still money to be made and we’ve picked out three of the best options for any would-be punters to consider:

Man United to score 4+ goals – 5/4

On both their previous two trips to Old Trafford, Hull have seen four goals slip past their goalkeeper to rustle the onion bag.

If that looks rosy for United, then the fact that their last three wins have all come by scoring four goals makes the bet look positively diamond encrusted.

Man United to come from behind and win – 15/2

Considering their patchy home form, it wouldn’t be completely out of kilter with the season’s script if Hull were to take the lead at Old Trafford.

However, only Spurs have been better at clawing victories from the jaws of defeat this season, coming back to win from losing positions four times over the course of the campaign.

Hull to lose the first half – 3/4

The away record of Bruce’s side is dismal. They’ve only won three times on the road all season and, unsurprisingly, rarely lead at the peep of the half-time whistle.

There have only been four games on their travels where Hull have gone into their dressing room leading, and they all came against sides sitting no higher than 13th in the current standings.
