If you Bet on Soccer at SBG sportsbook the odds have West Ham as the underdog at +275 with Manchester United the favorites at -120 with the total at 2 ½ and the draw at +235 for the game. This should be a real exciting game for the fans in this FA Cup quarter-finals match-up as both team seek a spot in the semi-finals, and only one team can win!
For the fans of Irons of West Ham United are traveling to Old Trafford and with a 4 game win streak behind them, including last Saturday comeback win over Everton.
Their offense has been playing well as they have 10 goals in that 4 games win streak. Now they seek to continue winning by overtaking The Red Devils of United in this quarterfinal clash on Sunday.
For the Irons to win they need M. Antonio and C. Kouyate to continue their scoring performances, since the 2 have combined for 15 goals to date. Antonio who in the last 5 games has only scored 1 time, but previously and presently he is the team leader for scoring goals with some 15 this season.
What is questionable for this match is their defense whom is dealing with injuries to W. Reid, J. O’Brien, J. Collins and J. Tomkins, but to date they have managed fairly well as in their ultimate 6 games they have only allowed an average of 1 goal per game. Remembering that of those six games they had shutouts against Tottenham and Sunderland.
For the fans of the Red Devils of Manchester United we know you are frustrated as your team comes into this FA Cup quarterfinal with 2 straight losses, with the last being their 0-2 defeat in the Europa League by Liverpool. In that loss the only thing that shined was goal keeper D. De Gea who made 6 incredible saves in that game, while his teammates struggled throughout the game. But the team will put that in their rear-view mirror, and seek to give their goal tender some scoring support in this game in this game at Old Trafford with the Red Devils.
Since Manchester United’s star and Captain W. Rooney is still sidelined, their manager L. Van Gaal will depend on A. Martial and J. Mata to lead the team, but with improved performances since in their latest 2 games they struggled. In all their games to date the 2 have combined for a total of 18 goals. In this game it will be interesting to see if the 2 can overcome their past struggles and score some goals to take United over West Ham, and remember the Irons have only given up 3 goals in their last 3 outings.
The online betting prediction for this FA Cup Quarterfinal match-up will find that West Ham, the underdogs will overtake the Red Devils and win this game 2-1 and move on to the semifinals.
