Manchester United will look to breathe fresh life into their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League when they travel to take on Crystal Palace in the English Premier League at Selhurst Park on Saturday (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC).

United have endured a dismal start to 2014, having won just two of their 10 competitive fixtures in all competitions thus far this year, but David Moyes’ men are still warm favorites to collect all three points this weekend.

The Red Devils can be backed at even-money as one-goal favorites at the LVH SuperBook. That makes Crystal Palace -120 at plus a goal. On the three-way result, Man U is -180, Crystal Palace is +300, and a draw can be had at +525. The total is 2.5 goals (OVER -105, UNDER -115).

A complete list of the LVH's odds for the weekend’s Premier League schedule is below.

Man U seeks a much-needed morale-boosting victory ahead of next week’s Champions League clash against Olympiakos in Greece.

Crystal Palace, though, have enjoyed an upturn in fortunes since former Stoke City boss Tony Pulis took over the reins at Selhurst Park and will be looking to heap more misery on Moyes’ side on Saturday.

The Eagles have lost just one of their last eight Premier League matches on home soil.

United’s last outing – a 0-0 draw against Arsenal in north London – was the first time in 11 matches that Moyes’ men have failed to score on their travels, while Palace have scored in six of their last seven matches at Selhurst Park.

While props on English Premier League games are not typically offered in Las Vegas, a prop asking whether both teams will score is being dealt elsewhere at 5-to-6, a price that appears to represent good value.

Wayne Rooney’s contract status with Man U has been in the news all week, and on Friday, news broke that the striker has inked a new five-and-a-half year deal that will pay him £300,000 (US $500,000) a week (via BBC.com).

Another prop offers Rooney at 9-to-2 odds to score the first goal of the game at Selhurst Park on Saturday and at 13-to-10 to find the back of the net at any point in the game.

However, with both sides having plenty to play for, this is likely to be an open clash, and a bet at odds of 5-to-6 on both sides to score is the recommended play from Goal.com.
