Man Utd v Arsenal – Premier League Betting Guide: 29th April 2018

Sunday 29th April 2018 
Manchester United v Arsenal 16:30

Despite there not being much riding on it we’ve still got a belter of a Premier League this Sunday as Man Utd and Arsenal lock horns. Yes, there might not be much riding on it with the top six positions looking fairly settled but when these teams clash – in any game – we can expect them to both be up for it……………….especially as this will be Arsene Wenger’s last game at the helm for Arsenal when playing United.

What are the stats saying? The teams played earlier this season with that finishing Arsenal 1-3 Man Utd, while last season’s repeat fixture ended 1-1. Actually, two of the last three head-to-heads at Old Trafford ended 1-1 so the 9.00 on offer to punters certainly makes some appeal.

However, it’s also worth noting that Arsenal last beat United away in the league in 2006 and that was a massive 10 repeat fixtures ago, while the Gunners have won just 2 of their last 13 league games over the Mourhino’s men. Taking that into account, it’s not hard to see why the match betting looks like this – Man Utd 1.44, Draw 4.33 and Arsenal 7.00.

Will there be goals? Three of the last 5 head-to-heads produced OVER 2.5 GOALS so at 1.80 this is sure to be popular with punters while 6 of the last 8 clashes had BOTH TEAMS SCORE – a repeat of both sides finding the back of the net is on offer at 1.95 so there certainly looks to be some value in this option and this is actually how we are going to approach this game.

BEST BET: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @1.95
