Man Utd v West Ham Betting: Reds odds on to win third round replay

Click here for an in-depth betting preview of the West Ham v Man Utd match on Wednesdhay 17th April 2013.

Manchester United and West Ham will do battle once more in Wednesday night's live FA Cup third round replay from Old Trafford. The two teams played out a thrilling 2-2 draw in the first match as a late Robin van Persie equaliser saved United and it is the Reds who start long odds on favourites in the match betting this week.

United are currently 1/3 to win the match in normal time, while the Hammers can be backed at 8/1 and the draw is 4/1 with PaddyPower. Sir Alex Ferguson's side have been formidable at home and it is no surprise to see that they are 1/9 on to qualify for the fourth round, with West Ham available at 5/1 in the 'to qualify' market.

Van Persie's 90th minute equaliser was enough to rescue United in the original tie and West Ham will be sick of the sight of the Dutchman as he has now scored five goals in his last four appearances against them. Van Persie scored the only goal in a 1-0 win for United against West Ham in the league earlier this term and he is 5/2 favourite to be first goalscorer this week.

Ferguson might be tempted to rest his star striker after he scored the opener against Liverpool on Sunday and he has an embarrassment of riches to choose from. Wayne Rooney could make his return from injury and he is 7/2 to open the scoring, while Javier Hernandez, who has scored 11 goals this season, can be backed at 4/1 in the latest betting with paddypower.

However, a more tempting punt might be Danny Welbeck at 9/2 as he bids to end his 11-match goal drought. The England striker was hugely impressive against Liverpool at the weekend and it's interesting to note United's recent habit of scoring first in matches. For the first half of the season they seemed to wait to fall behind before getting going but they have now scored first in each of their last four.

United have scored eight goals in the opening 25 minutes of their last eight matches and they are 3/10 on to score first on Wednesday, although for a touch more value it could be worth taking a punt on the 10/11 for the first goal to be scored before the 21st minute. United, who are likely to be without the injured Nemanja Vidic and Ashley Young, remain defensively suspect but they can enhance their record against the Hammers.

The Reds have kept just two clean sheets in their last 12 at home, although one of those came in the 1-0 league win against West Ham, who have failed to score in each of their last four visits to Old Trafford. They have lost each of the last four Man Utd v West Ham fixtures at Old Trafford and the United win to nil can be backed at 7/5, which looks a decent bet when you consider West Ham have failed to score in each of their last four away matches in all competitions.

Sam Allardyce's side have only scored five goals away from home all season and they are in the midst of a wretched run of form. They have only won two of their last 11, including four defeats in their last five away, and injuries to Joey O'Brien, James Collins and Andy Carroll ensure they are weakened further. Marouane Chamakh is ineligible and even a much-changed United side should have too much for their opponents, with PaddyPower going 3/1 that they win by a two goal margin.
