Match Betting (1x2)

Bramall Lane will be bouncing on Monday night and the majority of supporters will be hoping that their Sheffield United team can produce the sort of performance that recently pushed Liverpool close.

Chris Wilder was flatly disappointed after the 1-0 reverse against the runaway Premier League leaders considering that it was a goalkeeping mistake from Dean Henderson that led to Liverpool scoring the only goal of the game.

However, the Blades manager will also be massively encouraged by the way in which the players executed a game plan which saw the visitors largely nullified and he will hope to hatch a similar strategy against an Arsenal side who could be weak on the road again this term.

Sheffield United are trading at 14/5 with BetVictor to win this encounter and it looks a big price despite the fact that the newly-promoted team only enjoyed promotion to the top flight in May.

There’s also the fact that the Yorkshire side have lost three of their home matches to date, although defeats against Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester were all narrow after initially beating Crystal Palace.

In addition, United are unbeaten on the road after landing positive results away at Everton, Bournemouth, Watford and Chelsea. Six points from those matches means that the Blades are on course to avoid relegation at this early juncture.

However, it won’t stop many punters backing Arsenal at 10/11 and Unai Emery’s team have been the “best of the rest” so far, with the Gunners having amassed fifteen points from eight games although they’ve only won one game on the road.

The draw is trading at 14/5 with Unibet and we think that this could be a big runner considering that Manchester United and Watford have recently taken a point from home matches against the London side.

First Goalscorer

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will almost certainly be the most popular First Goalscorer option, with the Gabon forward available at 16/5 with Unibet and he’s been spanking in the goals since the season began.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker has bagged seven goals already this term and he is going to be a popular order for this clash, while Nicolas Pepe is showing flashes of brilliance and the Ivory Coast international can be backed at 27/5 to score the opener.

However, we wonder if this could be a game where David McGoldrick is able to break his duck and the former Ipswich man is a 7/1 poke to score the opener, while John Lundstram has been getting into excellent positions and you can get 28/1 that he breaks the deadlock.

Asian Handicap

If you think that Sheffield United can avoid defeat in this clash, then you can with the Blades with a +0.5 goal start and that’s available at 22/23 with BetVictor. This essentially means that Chris Wilder’s team simply need to avoid defeat in order to profit with this bet.

If you’re feeling confident that United won’t lose this game, an alternative way to back them would be Sheffield United 0 at odds of 39/20 with Unibet, with money back if the game ends in a draw although you would nearly treble your cash if the Blades won.

On the flip side, some will feel as though Arsenal might be able to do some damage in this clash and you can get the Gunners -1 at odds of 17/10 with Unibet. The same firm go 5/2 about Arsenal -1.5 for those customers who expect them to cover the line by two goals or more.

Both Teams to Score

Can Arsenal keep a clean sheet on the road? They managed to shut out Newcastle United at St James’ Park but have since conceded at Anfield, Vicarage Road and Old Trafford, with six goals shipped in those three games.

Similarly, the Gunners have found the net in all those games and that is why the “Yes” option on the BTTS market can be backed at a short 8/13 with Unibet.

Our biggest concern with betting at such short odds is that you can see the Blades struggling to score goals and they have managed to find the net just twice in front of their own supporters.

Therefore, the “No” option is trading at an attractive 13/10 with Ladbrokes, with the 0-0 draw covered with this wager along with either teams winning the game and keeping a clean sheet.

Over / Under Goals

We’re intrigued by the prices on this market. After all, Sheffield United’s four home matches have returned a grand total of six goals and yet Under 2.5 Goals can be backed at a tasty price of 5/4 with BetVictor.

We know that the Blades will deploy a tactical strategy to try and starve Arsenal’s attacking players when it comes to getting the ball and we’re happy to consider several situations where there will be a low-scoring encounter.

BetVictor have 7/10 that there are Over 2.5 Goals and that means three or more have to be scored throughout the ninety minutes. This is a good bet if you think that both teams will go on the front foot, although others might want to get with Over 3.5 Goals at 15/8 with Unibet.

Correct Score

You could do worse than back the 1-1 scoreline at odds of 7/1 considering that it’s a result which would definitely suit Sheffield United and it wouldn’t be a bad outcome for Arsenal either.

After all, the Gunners are looking to be more solid on the road but the fact that teams like Manchester United and Tottenham have dropped so many points already means that a draw would keep things ticking over.

We can’t resist a nibble on the 13/1 with BetVictor that the home side claim a 1-0 winning scoreline, while a 1-0 win for the Gunners is 9/1.
