Low Odds: Leeds v United - Man Utd to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2

Although at 5/1 and the odds being relatively high, Manchester United will travel to Elland Road during a period of topsy-turvy form where they seem to create an array of chances each game, but fail to score more than two goals.

Now, against a Leeds side who they have beaten 5-1 and 6-2 and drew 0-0 with since their return to the Premier League, at 5/1, we're backing the Red Devils to finally convert some chances after a comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion.

Leeds also lost 3-0 recently to an out-of-form Everton, and moreover, given how only Norwich City have conceded more than their 46 goals this campaign, Cristiano Ronaldo will be chomping at the bit to get his first goal against another club in his illustrious career following a great goal against Brighton.

83 shots have come in the past four games for United, which has only resulted in five goals, and with Marcelo Bielsa expected to go for it once again, this will only play into Ralf Rangnick's hands. We think the scoreline could be high again, but not as drastic as previous games given United's unpredictable form.

MAN UTD TO WIN 3-0, 3-1 OR 3-2 @ 5/1

High Odds: Leeds v Man United - Ronaldo and Fernandes to score

Sticking with the idea of United smashing Leeds out of the park again, Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes will be fancying themselves to get a goal or two here against a Whites side who they have 11 goals against in three games since their Premier League return.

Fernandes and Ronaldo also bagged a goal each from open play against Brighton at the start of the week and both goals were taken exceptionally well, as the Portugal captain scored from outside the box for the first time since rejoining United, as the midfielder slotted home a very clever finish which outclassed the Brighton defence.

Fernandes also has five goals against Leeds in his three games against the club, which included a brace last season in the 6-2 win at Old Trafford and a sensational hat-trick on the opening day of the season as United ran out 5-1 winners.

With goals expected, also expect the Portuguese duo to be involved.

Low Odds: Wolves v Leicester

While Leicester City see a lot of goals with 36 scored and 41 conceded in the Premier League alone, Wolves have scored only 21 and let the league's second-fewest (17) this season. This record is better than the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea, but at the same time, the club have scored, by a distance, the least outside of the relegation zone.

It works for Bruno Lage's men though, as they sit seventh in the table and have now seen 15 of their past 20 games in all competitions see under 2.5 goals. Within these five fixtures, Wolves have only once seen a scoreline greater than 2-1 in either sides' favour, winning all the other winning games via a 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 scoreline.

Against a Leicester side that cannot seem to keep the goals, we think Wolves will get the win here in one of those three scorelines once more, especially after the Foxes even conceded a goal in their 4-1 win over fifth-placed Danish Superliga side, Randers, in the Europa Conference League.

WOLVES TO WIN 1-0, 2-0 OR 2-1 @ 9/4

High Odds: Wolves v Leicester

Raul Jimenez has been excellent recently despite not scoring as often as he tends to, but in reality, that is more of a story for the entire Wolves squad, rather than him directly.

Since his return a few months back, defences have had a real problem controlling his stature once again and the striker managed to bag against Tottenham Hotspur last time out to end a three-game run without a goal. Jimenez does only have the one goal against Leicester from the six times he's faced the Foxes, however, following seven games without a clean sheet, even a side as low-scoring as Wolves should get the job done, and we anticipate the Mexican being involved once more.

In line with the low odds tip too, we don't anticipate it being that high-scoring and a 2-1 victory and Jimenez to score first is our tip at 33/1 for the high odds.
