After conquering AC Milan at the San Siro, Manchester United face their second tough road game in five days when they go to Everton on Saturday.
But the Betfair layers are taking no chances with the champions and rate the Reds as just 1.85 (5-6) chances to win at an opponent in very good form at present.
Everton have lost just once in 2010 – a fractious derby game with Liverpool – while Chelsea and Manchester City have been beaten at Goodison Park. They will not roll over for United.
Never mind David Beckham – Manchester United have a score to settle with AC Milan. The Reds have played the Rossoneri four times in Europe’s premier competition and the Italians have prevailed on each occasion. So will it be fifth time lucky for the Reds? And should you back them to qualify at odds of 1.56 (4/7)?
Manchester United are the classic ‘good things’ for favourite backers with struggling Portsmouth the opposition at Old Trafford this Saturday afternoon.
Odds of just 1.14 (1-7) are for the big bettors or multiple backers only, but it’s hard to argue that United are almost as close to a certainty as you’ll find in the Premier League.
And if you’re just getting started on betting, backing United to win in this game is the easiest ‘win’ you’ll get all year.
Odds of 2.93 (15/8) on a United win away to Arsenal this Sunday? Snap them up now.
That’s a great price on a Reds victory, regardless of the opposition or venue.
Look at it this way: we’ve scored seven goals in our last two fixtures and have already defeated the Gunners this season. And while we’re tearing it up against Hull and City, Arsenal lost 3-1 to Stoke and drew 0-0 to Aston Villa.
But perhaps the main argument for a Reds victory is the fact that we have the in-form player in Europe leading the line for us. With five goals in a week, any team that boasts Wayne Rooney has a good chance of winning.
It’s never a good game when United lose but, amid disappointment and controversy, punters’ should remember that the first leg of this Carling Cup semi-final was a cracker. Manchester derbies are fast becoming the most hottest clashes in England and that can only be a good thing.
Through our exclusive partnership with Betfair we are able to offer two tickets to the semi final 2nd leg against City at Old Trafford.

With the rest of the Premier League in FA Cup action the pressure is on United to clamber above Chelsea and Arsenal with a win over Hull this weekend.
A victory would make the Reds the first top flight team to reach 50 points this season and take them two clear of those London rivals. Three points is imperative.
And if Betfair layers are to be believed it will be achieved with little fuss as United go in to the game as overwhelming 1.17 (1-6) favourites.
Have Betfair punters lost their marbles? Reds backers won’t believe their eyes when they look at the Match Odds on Tuesday night’s Carling Cup semi-final first leg.
Manchester City should never, ever be favourites to beat United and odds of 2.88 (15/8) on an away win at Eastlands are amongst the best you will ever get on a Reds’ victory. After all, in the 34 years since City last won a trophy, United have collected 25 major honours.
