Manchester Utd v Arsenal Betting Odds Comparison

Match Betting (1x2)

We love a clash between Manchester United and Arsenal, even if this no longer represents a key chapter in the Premier League title story, with both teams unable to effectively become champions of England at the moment.

The Red Devils could only muster sixth place in the table last season and they might be fortunate to finish that high this time around, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer second favourite in the Premier League Sack Race market.

United are favourites to win Monday night’s clash against Arsenal and it should be noted that they have beaten Chelsea and Leicester at Old Trafford already this term, although those victories sandwiched a 2-1 defeat against Crystal Palace.

The good news for the home side is that Paul Pogba is returning to the first team and, whether you like him or not, he adds quality to the ranks and often raises his game for matches such as this one.

The Gunners have actually started the season well if you look at their points tally. Eleven points from six games is a very solid return although Arsenal’s performances have been rather erratic and they made hard work of beating Aston Villa on Sunday.

Many might think that the 41/20 with Unibet is a tasty price about the away win although their defence can’t be trusted and Manchester United are 13/10 to triumph in this clash and make it three wins from four matches.

First Goalscorer

As mentioned, Paul Pogba is back in the fold after an injury and the Frenchman will want to put on a big show. We shouldn’t forget that this is someone who won the World Cup with France last year and he’s 7/1 with Unibet to rise to the fore and open the scoring in this clash.

It appears that Anthony Martial will be sidelined for longer, while Marcus Rashford could also miss out although Daniel James seems to be an option with his electrifying pace and Unibet have 19/2 about him bagging the opener.

If Martial does make it back, then we can be sure that he’ll be operating in the centre forward position and Paddy Power chalk up 11/2 about the former Monaco striker breaking the deadlock.

There are probably more First Goalscorer options within the Arsenal team, especially after it has emerged that Nicolas Pepe is on penalty kicks and the Ivory Coast international is an 8/1 chance to score the opening goal.

However, there’s little doubt that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is likely to be a more popular selection, with Paddy Power going 9/2 about the Gabon forward and he’s just been banging in the goals since the season began.

Asian Handicap

If you think Arsenal are the likelier winner but want to take some kind of insurance about the Gunners, then you can get 5/4 with Unibet about the visitors on the Asian Handicap with a 0 start. This means that you would get your money back if the game is a draw but win at 5/4 if they win.

If you’re looking for a similar kind of insurance about Manchester United, then they’re trading at 13/18 to claim the spoils off a 0 start, while the Red Devils are 23/10 with a -1 Asian Handicap which means you would win if they manage to prosper by two goals or more.

Both Teams to Score

This is a betting market that really interests us for this clash. After all, Manchester United have scored in all their home matches so far. Similarly, we have seen both teams score in every Arsenal match since they won 1-0 at Newcastle.

Both sides will be going for the win and William Hill have 4/7 about BTTS Yes, with Solskjaer knowing that the United supporters need to see a positive performance where the team go on the front foot.

However, it’s worth noting that Manchester United managed to beat Chelsea and Leicester without conceding and perhaps the “No” option could attract interest at 17/10, especially if Arsenal manage to sort their defence out.

Over / Under Goals

We saw this fixture end in a 2-2 scoreline last season and customers wanting to back Over 3.5 Goals this season can find 6/4 with William Hill about at least four goals being scored again.

It’s perfectly plausible that this will be a typically open game and those customers looking to bet on the more standard Over 2.5 Goals can land themselves 4/6 that the net bulges at least three times.

United’s previous home success saw them beat Leicester by a single goal and you can get 13/10 about Under 2.5 Goals being scored, while Under 1.5 Goals is available at a meaty 4/1 with Unibet.

Correct Score

This looks like a difficult match to predict the score. Let’s work on the basis that both sides find the net and we’ll see at least three goals being scored. This brings the 2-1 victory into play and United are 9/1 to claim a triumph by this scoreline.

Alternatively, a 3-1 win for Manchester United has been chalked up at 18/1 and it’s not beyond the realms of possibility considering that the home side are always fired up for these sort of clashes.

However, confidence could be fragile within the home ranks and you can get 9/1 about a 2-1 win for Arsenal, while a repeat of that 2-2 draw can be backed at 10/1.
