Not many non-reds betting on this next May.

You’d think that after winning the Premier League title at a canter last season United would enter the new one as many bookie’s favourites to retain it. That doesn’t seem to be the case though as with Manchester City buying the likes of Fernandinho, Jesus Navas and Alvarao Negredo, Chelsea bringing back Romelu Lukaku and signing André Schürrle has had an effect on the odds.

Let’s not pretend its the Summer signings that have really had some bookies placing United as long as even 13/5 to retain the title, its the departure of the most successful manager in history that’s got the betting vultures circling over the Reds title challenge before its even begun.

If you’re after a gamble but don’t fancy, taking on the bookies, there’s always Casinodino or other online casinos you can give a go, as there popularity seems to exceed even that of football betting of late.

Being third favourites shouldn’t bother David Moyes or anyone associated with United as we only have to look at Fred Done’s actions in 1998 when he paid out on the Reds winning the league to realise that the bookies can often get it drastically wrong.

If you really do fancy the Reds for the title now may be the time to have a flutter as even a convincing win in the Community Shield, or perhaps the signing of a certain Spanish midfielder could see the odds suddenly lower.

    I hate to say it but I think Chelsea have to be favourites now they have Mourinho back. I mean the guy just wins things, that’s what he does.

    Apparently that wasn’t good enough for us, there was some other stuff that was more important so we didn’t offer him the job. I think the club might regret that.
