Huddersfield Town look to enjoy the final Premier League game at the John Smith’s Stadium for quite a while when they take on Manchester United this weekend. Huddersfield are set to go down as the bottom team after only managing 14 points so far in the campaign. Manchester United have a lot of play for in this game with the team just three points behind the top four places. The Red Devils have to depend on teams dropping points elsewhere in order to reach the Champions League next season. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Huddersfield fell to a 5-0 defeat – for the second time this season – after the Liverpool enjoyed a comfortable victory at Anfield on Friday night. This was the eighth successive loss for the Terriers.
Manchester United saw a much-improved display rewarded with just a 1-1 draw against Chelsea, as David de Gea made an error yet again. United are without a victory in four straight games.
The Red Devils were able to enjoy a comfortable 3-1 success over Huddersfield Town on Boxing Day. United were able to manage a 2-0 victory over Huddersfield in the last visit to the John Smith’s Stadium, although the team did suffer a shocker of a 2-1 defeat in the last league visit to this ground back in October 2017. Our betting tips and predictions would opt for a Manchester United victory.

Huddersfield are at the end of a disastrous campaign but the team will still desire to go out in a positive fashion when they take on Manchester United, who have been going through a crisis of their own. Even though the last two games of the campaign are teams in the bottom three, United have reasons to be dejected with top four no longer in their hands. Yet, the recent performance from United in the game against Chelsea gives enough confidence to back a win for the away team.

Huddersfield Town vs Manchester United draw odds: 5.50
Huddersfield Town win odds: 9.00
Correct Score odds
Manchester United have been able to put in a decent shift over the last two games. It is a far cry from the disappointing performance that they put in against Everton. Even a half-hearted performance from United should be good enough to get a comfortable win over Huddersfield, who have conceded 11 goals at home in the last six games. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 United victory.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Since Huddersfield came back from the last international break, they have been involved in just one low scoring encounter. The positivity that came to the club after the arrival of Jan Siewert has faded away very quickly. Even with United not being at their best, this can be a high-scoring game with over 2.5 goals, according to our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds
Romelu Lukaku was the end of some decent opportunities against Chelsea but he was unable to find the back of the net. The Belgian forward has not scored since the first week of March and this goal drought stretches to 8 matches across all competitions. Even then, Lukaku’s physicality and pace will be a major worry for Huddersfield. Lukaku scored a brace in the recent visit to the John Smith’s Stadium and our first goalscorer prediction would back the 25-year-old.
