There are two Premier League matches that are scheduled to take place on Sunday the 18th of February, but the one that I am going to be focusing on sees Manchester United travel down to London to take on Luton Town. This is a big match for both teams for different reasons, and it has a scheduled kick-off time of 16:30 GMT. The Red Devils are in with a shot of qualifying for next season's Champions League, while Luton need points to stave off relegation. Which way will this match unfold? Keep on reading and all will be revealed.

🏆 Luton Town vs Manchester United: Who Will Win?

Luton Town were looking in good touch when they picked up five points from three games to lift themselves out of the Relegation Zone, but they kind of undid all of that hard work by losing 3-1 to Sheffield United, who are propping up the table and all but relegated. The Hatters are still outside of the bottom three, but they will see last weekend's defeat to the Blades as an opportunity lost. They are playing better than their relegation rivals, so will still be confident of booking themselves another season in the EPL.

Manchester United were knocked out in the Group Stage of the Champions League, so the only thing that they have to focus on now is finishing in the top four of the EPL. They did their chances of qualifying for the Champions League no harm last weekend as they got a rather fortuitous win against Aston Villa. They were dominated in that match, but ended up with the points, which has become a frequent story of their season. They just seem to know how to get the job done. They are now six points behind Spurs in 4th place.

A trip to Kenilworth Road is never an easy assignment, but I do still expect Manchester United to leave with all three points in the bag. As for my score prediction for this match, I am going for a 3-1 win for the away team.

My Prediction: 🏆 Luton 1 Manchester United 3 ⚽

💯 Luton Town vs Manchester United Match Odds

The best thing about betting on a football match is the fact that you can usually bet on any outcome that you wish. For instance, you can bet on the number of fouls that a player will make or the number of yellow cards that a team will pick up. However, we will not be dealing with such niche markets in this prediction - we will be focusing on three common markets which can be seen below:

  • Match winner
  • Both teams to score
  • Over/Under 2.5 goals

New UK betting sites and established betting sites will always offer odds for such markets, and you can find their current odds for these betting options in the table below. These bookies also have plenty of free betsthat you can claim, and you can find out about these by clicking on the logos that you can see in the table.

Luton Town vs Manchester United: Match Winner Odds

The bookies have Manchester United as the favourites to go on and earn the three points, which is not that surprising. The likely scenario is that the Red Devils will win this match, but you cannot rule out Luton entirely. In fact, Newcastle drew 4-4 with Luton after they beat Villa 3-1. If you want to bet on the match winner, then you can find some of the top odds that are being offered:

Team
Luton Town3.953.954.204.004.10
Draw3.953.954.004.104.10
Manchester United1.741.741.801.771.78

Luton vs Manchester United: Both Teams To Score Odds

With regard to the BTTS market, the bookies are pretty certain that neither team will manage to keep a clean sheet in this match. This is something that I can get on board with, and I am going to explain why in the next section of this guide. For the time being, you can occupy your mind with the current both teams to score odds:

Team
Yes1.501.501.531.541.60
No2.412.412.352.232.28

Luton vs Manchester United: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

Since the bookies think that Man United will win and that both teams will find the back of the net, it will not come as much of a shock to find out that they are also backing there to be at least three goals scored in this game. If this is a type of market that you like to place bets on, then below are the odds that are currently being offered for it:

Team
Over 2.51.531.531.581.531.58
Under 2.52.322.322.382.322.40

✔️ Luton Town vs Manchester United - Betting Tips

It is now time for me to provide you with some football betting tips for this Luton Town vs Manchester United match. As always, whenever you are gambling, make sure that you do so responsibly by setting up a budget and making sure that you stick to it. Now that I have gotten that reminder off my chest, let us crack on:

  • Tip 1: Bet on Manchester United to win: If the true Manchester United show up, then they should go on and win this match. They have better players than their opponents and are in betting form, having won three of their last league matches. They will be buoyed by their 2-1 win over Villa at Villa Park last weekend, while Luton will be feeling down after their defeat to Sheffield United. If you want to place a bet on Manchester United to win this match, then you can find odds of 1.80 at 10Bet Sport.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: Both United and Luton have not been in prolific form in front of goal in the league, but I still think that both teams will find the back of the net in this one. Both teams have managed to score in 75% of Luton's home matches this season, so this points to both teams managing to score. If you would like to back both teams to find the back of the net, then you can find odds of 1.60 at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 3: Bet on Rasmus Hojlund to score: The Dane had a tricky start to his life at Manchester United, but things are starting to look up for him as he has now scored in five of his previous five games. He is now showing the type of quality that we all know he has, and it would not surprise me if he were to get on the scoresheet at the weekend. If you would like to put money on Hojlund to score, then Betiton Sport are offering odds of 2.43 for him.
  • Tip 4: Bet on United to win the match 3-1: If you want to bet on the correct score in this match, then I am predicting that it will finish 3-1 in United's favour. If you agree with me here, then Mr Mega Sport are currently offering odds of 11.00 at present.

1️⃣Luton Town Update

At the start of the season, the majority of football fans had Luton as one of the dead certs for relegation, so it is to their credit that they are currently sitting outside the Relegation Zone. They looked a bit dead and buried a month or so ago, but a run of positive results, apart from their last defeat to the Blades, has given them a new breath of life.

They are currently one point above Everton, and will probably need to win six more games if they are to have any chance of staying in this league. No matter what happens, I am sure that their fans will have enjoyed their season in the Premier League. Nobody expected them to stay up, so relegation is definitely not the end of the world for them.

2️⃣Manchester United Update

Many have been saying that Manchester United have had a pretty horrendous season, but I consider this to be a huge exaggeration. Yes, they are no longer in Europe as they finished at the bottom of their Champions League group, but they are somehow still in with a shout of playing in next season's UCL.

They are currently sitting in 6th place in the table, five points behind Villa in 5th and six points behind Tottenham in 4th place. They have not been lighting the league up this season and are pretty boring to watch, but they are somehow picking up the points, which is the most important thing.
