Manchester United host Crystal Palace on Tuesday at Old Trafford to kick off defense of their English League Cup title. The Red Devils come into the 2023-24 English League Cup third-round match in a bit of a funk, as injuries on the back line have left them vulnerable. They are eighth in the English Premier League table, one point ahead of ninth-place Palace.
Kickoff in Manchester, England is set for 3 p.m. ET. United are -170 favorites (risk $170 to win $100) in the latest Manchester United vs. Crystal Palace odds, while Palace are +450 underdogs.

Before you lock in your Crystal Palace vs. Manchester United picks or English League Cup predictions, you NEED to see the EFL Cup predictions from SportsLine soccer expert Martin Green.
After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since last year's Men's World Cup, Green has been profitable in multiple areas on his soccer picks, including the Champions League (+4.78 units), FA Cup (+3.07), EFL Cup (+3.64), Euro 2024 qualifiers (+3.01) and Europa League (+1.60).
Green knows the hosts will be highly motivated after a slow start in league play. This might be their best shot at silverware this season, so they won't take it lightly. Bruno Fernandes broke through with a goal on Saturday as United edged Burnley 1-0 in an EPL match, and he and Marcus Rashford give United an edge in attacking talent. Defender Raphael Varane could be ready for a full return for the Red Devils, which would give the back line a boost.
The expert also has considered that Palace are a much better team than Burnley. Roy Hodgson's side has pace and creativity, and Eberechi Eze and Odsone Edouard could be trouble for the Man U's makeshift back line. Palace have yielded seven goals in their six EPL matches, while United have conceded 10. The Red Devils also have allowed almost twice as many shots on target (34-17), so Crystal Palace should get their chances.
Green has taken an in-depth look at the Manchester United vs. Crystal Palace match and is leaning slightly over on the goal total.
