That’s it as far as the odds are concerned. Arsenal is coming into this one as the favorite following a dominant win over Chelsea last week. The teams’ moneylines aren’t too far apart, though, but at the first glance I reckon we can all agree Arsenal’s moneyline has far better value at +105… especially considering the form United is in at the moment.
The real question is – can Arsenal snatch a Champions League spot from Tottenham? At the moment, they’re tied in terms of points (57 both), but Tottenham has a far better goal difference.
Arsenal needs two dominant wins to tie the scenario, and Manchester United would realistically be a fine place to start.
Even though Arsenal are the favorites coming into this one, and despite winning against Chelsea last week, you should know that Arsenal had been on a three-matches losing streak prior to that. And, mind you, it wasn’t against the best of ePL teams – it was against Crystal Palace, Brighton, and Southampton.
That said, Arsenal aren’t invincible, and United’s players ought to be well aware of that. But, United’s players will also be well aware of the fact they themselves are absolute sh*t at the moment, which gives another dimension to our Arsenal vs. Manchester United betting predictions.
Arsenal’s youngster continue to be a force to be reckoned with! Smith-Rowe, Saka, and now Eddie Nketiah too. Arsenal’s future looks bright, and Arteta deserves much praise for it. But, can Arsenal’s youth affect our Arsenal vs. Manchester United betting picks that much?
Well, if their clash against Chelsea is anything to go with, they surely can!
Let’s start off with Manchester United, a team many have predicted to be at or near the top of the Premier League this season… but a team that near the end of the campaign is doing its best to snatch any sort of European football next season.
Here’s a closer look:
Manchester’s entire season has been one massive rollercoaster. Their two latest matches perfectly depict that. First, a much-needed win against Norwich which took a Cristiano Ronaldo hat trick to come through.
But then, it was followed with a reckless 4:0 loss to their biggest-ever rivals in Liverpool. That was a nail in the coffin for Rangnick, that’s for sure, ETH immediately announced as his replacement.
It’ difficult to say, really. Ronaldo’s recent hat trick against Norwich has put him back at the pedestal. But, recent family tragedy must’ve left a massive dark spot and is certain to affect his gameplay against Arsenal. Remember, he hasn’t played against Liverpool. He’s likely to start against the Gunners, though I am not sure if he’s going to be at his usual best.
Other than Ronaldo, I kid you not – Fred has been a pivotal player for Manchester United this season. The prolific Brazilian central defender has been moving up the pitch all year long and covering both boxes. He’s going to have a hard time against Arsenal’s rock solid defensive midfield, though.

If you’re interested in betting on soccer today, here’s the main gist of this piece:
$100 Could Win You…$220
That’s right, we’re going with a simple Arsenal moneyline at +105. It’s a straightforward bet, especially considering the circumstances, but one that should go through no matter how poorly Arenal end up playing.
How come? Well, it’s simple – Manchester United are a real mess at the moment and given the way Arsenal have played against Chelsea, they should be able to cruise to a win with 50% of their firepower.
Some of you probably expected something with a bit more oomph. Something like Arsenal -1 or along those lines. I won’t lie, the value is certainjly there… but for the sake of keeping this one as straightforward as possible, I’ve opted for a simple moneyline instead.
