Arsenal vs Manchester United odds maker breakdown: Offense

Arsenal have scored 10 goals in their first two league matches, and five more in Champions League qualifiers, and online betting players are hoping that their inability to cash in on their slick passing game has been solved. However, their goals are coming from their midfield, not their strikers. United recovered from their shocking loss at Burnley to thrash Wigan 5-0, and Wayne Rooney has three goals already to start the season. He knows that he has produce to make up for the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo, and it also bodes well for England’s World Cup odds heading into the 2010 tournament.

Arsenal vs Manchester United odds maker breakdown: Defense

Both defenses have played well in the early part of the season, and they’ve done it without key parts. Arsenal sold Kolo Toure to Manchester City, but Thomas Vermaelen has stepped in well since coming over from Ajax. Rio Ferdinand has been missing from the United back four with a thigh injury, and the versatile John O’Shea has filled in, as well as Jonny Evans. Edwin van der Sar is also hurt, but Ben Foster is proving he can be counted upon….when he is healthy. Still, there are too many injuries at the back for United.

Arsenal vs Manchester United odds maker breakdown: Coaching

It’s no secret that Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger and United’s Sir Alex Ferguson aren’t the best of friends. The verbal sparring in the media before the meetings is arguably the most enjoyable part of these games. However, it’s been put on the backburner as Arsenal has fallen from the top of the league, and Ferguson has turned his attention to Liverpool’s Rafael Benitez. Both are great managers in their own right, but the sportsbook edge goes to Ferguson because of his team’s recent performances against the Gunners.

Betting Edge: Manchester United

Arsenal vs Manchester United odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries

Captain Cesc Fabregas is the heart of Arsenal’s midfield, and he’s scored twice to start the season, but he limped off in last week’s win over Portsmouth and didn’t play in the midweek Champions League match against Celtic. United’s defense has been ravaged by injuries: Ferdinand, Evans, and Rafael da Silva are all essentially out, while Gary Neville and Nemanja Vidic have trained lightly.

Betting Edge: Draw

Arsenal vs Manchester United betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

The wealth of attacking talent in this game will be the focus, but if Fabregas doesn’t play, Arsenal’s options are very limited as he pulls the strings in the middle of the field. United has enough depth at defense to put together a decent back four, and their strikers have been on point this year. Arsenal have struggled at Old Trafford as of late, losing four and drawing one of their last six trips there. They scored four at Portsmouth last week, but this isn’t Portsmouth, and United takes great pride in defending their home soil.
