Manchester United has little margin for error in its fight for a top-four spot as Tottenham visits Old Trafford for an English Premier League match Saturday. United (13-8-7) enters Matchweek 29 in the fifth spot in the table after falling a point back off a 4-1 loss to league-leading Manchester City last Sunday. Tottenham (14-3-9) is also one of the teams right in the middle of it, sitting just two points behind the Red Devils in seventh. Man U is one of just five Premier League teams to have played the full 28 games, with Spurs having two in hand and current No. 4 Arsenal holding three. That means the Red Devils will be desperate to secure points Saturday, but Tottenham comes in with confidence off a 5-0 thrashing of Everton on Monday.
Kickoff is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET at Old Trafford in Manchester, England. Man U is the +140 favorite (risk $100 to win $140) on the 90-minute money line in Caesars Sportsbook's latest Manchester United vs. Tottenham odds. Spurs are the +190 underdog, a draw is listed at +245 and the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Why you should back Manchester United
The Red Devils are 4-1-1 in the last six meetings with Tottenham, outscoring them 6-1 in posting consecutive victories. Marcus Rashford scored along with Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani in the 3-0 win in London in October. Rashford has four league goals and could play a big role Saturday with Ronaldo (nine goals) uncertain with a hip injury and Cavani (two) nursing a groin problem. Bruno Fernandes (nine goals, six assists) is an excellent option to lead the attack and will be motivated after his frustrating day against the stout defense of Manchester City.
Jadon Sancho had a few big moments against City and scored his third goal of the season, and the 21-year-old could get a longer look Saturday. Fernandes leads the league in key passes (77) and Paul Pogba has nine assists in 15 games, so the young players should get some quality chances. United has 70 more total shots than Tottenham and has put 133 of its 397 on target, third-most in the league. Goalkeeper David de Gea has been a workhorse, playing every minute of all 28 games while leading the EPL with 100 saves and posting a 73 save percentage.
Why you should back Tottenham
Spurs don't fire as many shots as Manchester United, but they are far more efficient. They lead the Premier League in putting 39 percent on target, more than two percent better than any other team. United is tied for third-most attempts on target allowed, with the keeper forced to make a save on 137 of 382 (36 percent). That means there should be plenty of shooting lanes for Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, who have combined for 21 league goals.
Tottenham won the last meeting at Old Trafford 6-1, with Kane and Son each scoring twice. It also could catch Man U looking ahead to its Tuesday Champions League matchup with Atletico Madrid. Kane scored twice and Son once against Everton, and Sergio Reguilon also got on the board. The wing back leads the EPL in crosses into the penalty area with 22.
