Courtesy of bet365, it’s time to take a look at some of the best betting odds available to fans ahead of this weekend’s Manchester United vs Arsenal clash at Old Trafford. In many ways, this game doesn’t actually mean all that much and probably won’t affect anything in the grand scheme of the Premier League season, but beyond that, it’ll signify an important end for one of the Premier League’s greatest rivalries.
Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger will clash one final time before the Frenchman leaves Arsenal in search of pastures new this summer, after many years of battling with their respective clubs. It’s no secret that the two men don’t exactly think the world of each other, but it’s often the case that rivals such as these two have a mutual respect of sorts – and that will likely come to the surface on Sunday.
But we’re here to talk about the bets, and with that in mind, you may be interested to learn that few believe the Gunners can pull off the win this weekend with their odds being as far out as 7/1. On the other hand, you can get United at 4/9 as the favourites, whereas a draw in the final Mourinho vs Wenger showdown will be priced at 15/4.
‘Yes’ for BTTS is 4/5 with ‘No’ being 19/20, but given the dynamic of the match, it’ll be interesting to see how that plays out. After all, Arsenal will likely be looking to rest some players ahead of their vital Europa League game against Atletico Madrid on Thursday, although you’d expect that Wenger won’t want his last trip to Old Trafford as Arsenal manager to end without them at least scoring a goal.
Over 3.5 cards is priced at 4/5, and if it were up to us, we’d suggest that you lump everything you’ve got on that one. This is bound to be a feisty affair from the very first minute until the last, and as we’ve alluded to, Wenger will want to go out strong instead of with a whimper. Unsurprisingly Romelu Lukaku is the favourite to score at 1/1 anytime, with Marcus Rashford (11/10) and former Gunners hero Alexis Sanchez (6/5) coming in right behind him.
Will we see the ultimate supervillain ending to Wenger’s tenure with Sanchez scoring against his former boss? You’d best believe it’s likely.
What will the scoreline be this weekend?
