This weekend is delivering us a feast of Thanksgiving sport this weekend, including some big games in matchweek 13 of the English Premier League. In this article, I will focus on the Sunday blockbuster game in the Premier League, Chelsea vs Manchester United. Last week, I got two out of three picks right which would’ve doubled your bankroll for the weekend.
Now, let’s dive in and see where the betting opportunities lie in this game.

EPL Best Bets – Chelsea vs Manchester United
Over the years, these two titans of the EPL have often duked it out for league supremacy, but this year has a slightly different feel to it.
On the face of it, Manchester United is in real turmoil, right now. Last week, Ole Gunnar Solkskjaer was sacked after an embarrassing 4-1 defeat to relegation battlers Watford. However, a midweek win over Villareal in the Champions League has lifted the spirits and the players will see the Chelsea game as an opportunity to lay down a statement.
On the other hand, Chelsea has been nothing short of marvelous this season. Tuchel has them playing an attractive style of football while also having one of the tightest defenses in the league. In fact, the west London outfit is joint top in clean sheets and second for goals scored.
Chelsea and Over 2.5
A blind man could see that Chelsea are a cut above Manchester United, right now. As a result, the sportsbooks have offered a measly -182 for them to win and it’s hard to get excited odds like that.
As a result, I would combine this bet with an over 2.5 goals odds prop to get more bang for my Premier League picks. Because Chelsea’s scoring rate is more than 2.5 goals per game which means they are capable of winning the over by themselves. But also, away from home United averages more than 3 goals a game.
So, I expect there to be goals and expect a Chelsea win come Sunday.
Cristiano Ronaldo to score anytime: (+195)
United is an unknown quantity going into this weekend. But, one thing is for certain. Regardless of whether Michael Carrick or Ralf Rangnick is choosing the team, Ronaldo will start upfront. As a result, he’ll be their main goal threat and most likely to be the goalscorer if United breaches the Chelsea defense.
So, the fact that he has plus odds makes great good value.
