Manchester United vs Brighton Bet Builder: Sunday, August, 7th

As the Red Devils prepare to welcome the Seagulls to Old Trafford, we also have our Manchester United vs Brighton bet builder tips to reveal. Tips that will focus on Erik ten Hag’s first official match in charge.

One that sees Brighton make the long trip north and after losing in last season’s corresponding fixture by two goals to nil, manager Graham Potter and his men will hope for better fortunes this time.

Manchester United vs Brighton Preview

Sunday, August 7th, 14:00 (UK)

After a rather forgettable end to last season, a new era now gets underway at Manchester United. One that sees Erik ten Hag take the managerial baton from Ralf Rangnick and the remit for the former Ajax boss is rather simple.

A remit that demands rather than asks ten Hag to return Manchester United to the Champions League at the end of the season. Although whether he can achieve this, remains to be seen.

While the same is said for whether Cristiano Ronaldo will still be at the club by September. Because with the Red Devils only earning an invite to this season’s Europa League, there is a sense that the Portuguese icon has become too big for the club.

A danger that was always lurking around the corner, should United have not finished in the top four last season. A danger that is now unfolding in front of our very eyes and now the club’s hierarchy must decide what to do with their prized possession

Although when it comes to prized possessions, Brighton have already lost one and may soon lose another. With Yves Bissouma being snapped up by Tottenham and Marc Cucurella heading to Chelsea, there are questions over the Seagull’s capabilities this season.

Then again, Brighton have a habit of regenerating after a loss of personnel. Although the names they bring in are rarely household, they always manage to keep the club operating within the confines of the Premier League.

With a wave of optimism floating over Old Trafford in recent weeks, now it is time to see what Manchester United’s current crop is all about. While I have a hunch that one of this group will come in from the relative cold.

Because although it would be rather easy to back Cristiano Ronaldo in the anytime market, I have actually plumped for Marcus Rashford instead. Especially as United’s new manager has seemingly taken a shine to him.

Not only that but I think the Red Devils will be quick out of the traps on Sunday. Which also means I have opted for a half time win for the hosts and it could be a long afternoon for Graham Potter and the travelling Seagulls.

With under four total goals being placed on my betting slip, it could even be a repeat of last season’s 2-0 reverse for Brighton. Should this take your interest, you can currently get odds of 8.00.

While for those who like to simplify their focus on the over/under 2.5 market, two or less in total is priced at 1.90. Tempting as this may be, it is the same price for over and therefore, a toss of a coin bet is one to avoid.

Going back to my bet builder and with six or more corners looking like a rather safe suggestion, it just adds a little bit more meat on the bones. This means when you add the four markets together, this combination is also worth odds of 8.00.

  • Marcus Rashford to score anytime
  • Manchester United half time win
  • Under 4 total goals
  • Over 5 total corners

Bet Builder odds: 8.00
