Pick of the day #12: Manchester United – West Ham
I planned to find a double today with Manchester United AH -1 and one other game. Unfortunately I could not find any game with value enough. I place two units on a Manchester United win (AH -1) @1.41 (Pinnacle Sports) at home to West Ham in the FA Cup.
Manchester United have great depth in their squad and, despite resting some stars, Alex Ferguson will place a very strong team on the pitch tonight. Wayne Rooney is believed to join Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernández up front. Nani and Valencia are believed to start on the flanks. With the depth Manchester United have in their squad, their starting eleven should beat West Ham, regardless of the team Sam Allardyce pick.
West Ham have great problems in their defensive line, with only three first team defenders available. They have a very intense time ahead with an important derby game at home to QPR on Saturday, followed by derby away games against Arsenal and Fulham. I believe that Allardyce will focus on the game on Saturday.
