West Ham have had some impressive away wins in the Premier League, but can they continue their fine record with a win at Old Trafford vs. Man United? Review the soccer odds with us & find out.

West Ham
West Ham have been performing Premier League miracles away from the Boleyn Ground this season, can they continue their fine away form at Manchester United on Saturday?

The Hammers' have already been to Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City and come back to the capital with maximum points and they are a massive 8.50 with BetVictor to add to that impressive list with victory at the weekend.

I'm not so sure they can repeat those early season heroics though, and Slaven Bilic for the first time in his West Ham managerial career faces his first tough time in charge at the Boleyn Ground as his side have now lost their last two away matches at Watford and Tottenham and are without a win in their last four Premier League games.

The main reason for that bad run of form is the injury to their key man and main playmaker Dimitri Payet who has missed all those winless matches and he again won't feature at Old Trafford.

United are as short as 1.40 with BoyleSports to win this, and despite them sitting pretty in third place in the Premier League table, and just one point behind leaders Man City, I'm still not totally convinced by the team that Louis van Gaal has assembled.

They were awful in last weeks 1-1 draw at Leicester and in the second half, well they seemed happy for the point and that is not what you expect from a Manchester United side.


Manchester United
The Red Devils are now unbeaten in nine matches in all competitions, but they've drawn six of them and if you had backed them to win in every game of that unbeaten run you would've certainly lost your money.

I couldn't back either side to win this game with any confidence, but the one thing I'm very confident of is a lack of goals. The best bet in the match is for either under 2.5 goals to be scored which is a general 1.91 soccer odds with most sportsbooks or just back both teams not to score which is 1.80 with Skybet, I will be adding both to my soccer picks.

Under 2.5 goals has now been a winner in EIGHT of the last nine Manchester United matches and with Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial seriously lacking in confidence where are the goals going to come from?

Juan Mata is United's top goalscorer with just FOUR goals and with Bilic expected to go tight and put spoiler Alex Song in the starting line-up they will be very hard to break down.

10 of the last 14 matches both teams have failed to score in Man United matches also and under goals and lack of goals markets are the best way to profit for sure.
