Having lost eight and won just one of their last 11 fixtures in all competitions, the Cherries are hefty 12/1 (13.00) outsiders to get back on track with a first ever victory on this ground.
Six of the hosts’ last 10 league matches on home turf have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 24/5 (5.80) on them being held to a stalemate once again in this one.
While there were doubts about the Red Devils’ performances for most of the first half of the season, things now seem to be coming together at just the right time.
Although they remain in sixth position, the EFL Cup winners are enjoying the longest unbeaten streak in the league after going 16 matches without tasting defeat.
With the teams above them in the table continuing to falter, United will relish the opportunity to move back into the top four when they take on Eddie Howe’s struggling side.
No Premier League team has won fewer points in 2017 than the guests’ total of two from a possible 21, while two goals scored and 20 conceded also leaves them with the worst goal difference since the turn of the year.
All things considered, odds of 3/4 (1.75) seem generous on Bournemouth going in behind both at the break and full time for the fourth match in succession when they take on a confident home side that has won six consecutive matches, leading at half-time in five of those.
