Swansea To Host Manchester United In Season Opener

Published on July 14th, 2013 3:18 pm EST
Swansea City will play host to Manchester United on opening weekend of the 2013/14 English Premier League season.

Manchester United will be looking to get their campaign off on the right foot, as they are eager to start their defense of their 2012-13 EPL title. According to oddsmakers, Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City all have identical odds of winning the EPL this season, so it's important for Man Utd to get off on the right foot in a winnable game, as this year's competition looks to be fierce.

This game is taking on a bit of extra importance for a couple of reasons:

1. NBC will be airing this game for free on the NBC Sports Network in the United States, which means that Manchester United and Swansea City will be playing in front of an even larger global audience.

2. This will be David Moyes' first match as manager of Manchester United.


Let's take a look at the odds for this game:

Swansea City, 5.00
Draw, 3.75
Man Utd, 1.66

If you wagered £100 on each outcome, these are your potential returns:

Draw, £275
Man Utd, £66


The over/under for this game is set at 2.5 goals:

Over 2.5 Goals, 1.72
Under 2.5 Goals, 2.07


Can Man Utd start off their season on the right foot, or will Swansea City score an upset in Moyes' first game?
