Leicester City v Manchester United: Join Paddy Power for 25/1 on United at The King Power

Before the Premier League heads into a very brief Christmas break, we have one last game on Saturday night to enjoy. Leicester City host Manchester United in the 7.45 pm kick off with both sides hopeful that they can claim the win.

Leicester fans will point to an improved run of form under new manager Claude Puel but as far as the bookies are concerned, there’s only likely to be one winner. Manchester United are an odds on chance across the board but for new customers to Paddy Power, there is the option to take up this enhanced odds promotion that has a far more interesting price of 25/1 on the table.

Here are the details of that offer together with some market comparisons.

Standard Betting

Paddy Power are among a number of bookmakers offering 5/6 on a Manchester United win and if you already hold an account here, you could improve on that slightly by taking the best odds of 23/25 from MarathonBet.

To complete the picture, Ladbrokes have the draw at 5/2 while 888Sport are offering 17/5 on a Leicester City win. Away from home this could be tricky for Jose Mourinho’s men but clearly they have the better side and if you agree with the bookies, here’s what to do next.

Get on Board

This is an offer for new customers to Paddy Power so, if you don’t already hold an account here and have had no dealings in the past you can sign up via the link and register with some basic details.

That part of the process should take up no more than about two minutes of your time and then it’s time to add some funds. After registration, you should find yourself at the Paddy Power cashier’s page and the minimum deposit required here is £5.00. Use any available method other than Skrill or Neteller and then, when the money clears, it’s time to make the bet.

Betting and Getting Paid

The fixed sum for this bet is £1.00 so, as soon as the money appears in your account, stake this figure on Manchester United to beat Leicester City when these two teams meet at the King Power Stadium on Saturday December 23, 2017.

You can watch the match live on Sky Sports if you like but either way, if the bet wins you will be paid in two steps with initial profits arriving as cash, based on Paddy Power’s standard book price at the time of kick off.

The remaining amount, up to that enhanced odds sum of 25/1, will then come back as free bet tokens which must be used within 30 days. Both payments should arrive shortly after the game ends.


Manchester United are favourites for this game as they clearly have the better squad and have enjoyed a much more positive season overall. Leicester have, however, seen an improvement under new boss Puel so no-one would suggest that an away win is a certainty.

But, with enhanced odds of 25/1 up for grabs, this could well be worth aiming for if you have yet to sign up with Paddy Power as it’s a price that will be hard to match for Saturday’s game.
