Man Utd has been controlling the play despite allowing an early goal, and you think that there is a good chance that they will tie the game in the second half of play.

The second half betting odds look like this:

Man City, 1.80

Man Utd, 3.20

You take Man Utd in the second half. Man Utd ends up scoring a late goal to tie the game 1-1.
