WHAT: Soccer odss
WHEN: Sunday, January 31, 11:00 AM ET
WHERE: The Emirates Stadium, London, England
KEY STAT: United has one win, one draw and two losses in their last four trips to the Emirates

The Storyline: Man Utd vs Arsenal Betting Odds
It’s always an occasion when these two combatants hook up. United sits one point behind Chelsea in the Premiership, but are coming off a thrilling 3-1 win in the second leg of their Carling Cup tie with Manchester City, knocking their rivals out of the competition. Arsenal drew midweek at Aston Villa, and came away with a couple of injuries. The Gunners trail United by a single point in the standings, and they’ll look at this has a premier opportunity to leapfrog the defending champions.

Offensive Matchup: Man Utd vs Arsenal Betting Odds
Wayne Rooney could be the sportsbook favorite for Player of the Year, and he’s scored five goals in his last two games. He notched all four in a 4-0 thrashing of Hull last week, and then scored the injury-time winner to defeat Man City. Antonio Valencia has improved on the wing since a slow start at Old Trafford, and Ryan Giggs still provides class, but as long as Rooney is in the team, United can score on anyone.

Arsenal feels the same way about Cesc Fabregas, who has either a goal or an assist in six of the last 10 games he’s played in. However, outside of the young Spaniard, Arsenal is inconsistent in front of goal, particularly Andrei Arvashin, who has just two goals in his last 10 games. The Gunners really miss Robin van Persie, who is still out with an ankle injury. Still, Arsenal leads the league in goals scored.

Betting Edge: Draw

Defensive Matchup: Man Utd vs Arsenal Betting Odds
United will be without Rio Ferdinand, who earned a four-game ban for an incident against Hull last weekend. Nemanja Vidic may be recovered from a bum calf in time for this game, while John O’Shea is still out as well. United’s defense is still holding firm, but having all of their first-choice defenders would help.

Arsenal has their own worries as Thomas Vermaelen, who has been great since coming from Ajax, is out with a broken leg. This is after Philip Senderos moved to Everton in search of first-team football. This leaves William Gallas to marshal the back four, which has been prone to mistakes.

Betting Edge: Man Utd


Notable Injuries: Man Utd vs Arsenal Betting Odds
Vidic (calf) has been out for a while, and rumor is that he’s trying to leave Old Trafford. O’Shea (thigh) is out until May, while Owen Hargreaves (knee) is still a doubt.

Abou Diaby (calf) has no return date to come back from his injury, while van Persie (ankle) and Kieran Gibbs (foot) are long-term injuries. Eduardo (hamstring) was hurt against Aston Villa.

Betting Edge: Draw


Totals:Man Utd vs Arsenal Betting Odds
Seven of the last 10 meetings between these two have gone over the posted total, and their games are usually pretty wide open, given the attacking philosophies of Man Utd manager Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger.

Pick: Over 2.5 (-105)


Betting Prediction: Man Utd vs Arsenal Betting Odds
United has won five and drawn two of their last 10 meetings with Arsenal, including a pulsating 2-1 win at Old Trafford back in August that the Gunners should have won. Arsenal has been a force at the Emirates this year, going 9-1-1, while United’s record away from Old Trafford is 6-1-4. Fabregas and Rooney will be at the center of anything that happens in this match, and the supporting casts will be the difference. However, Arsenal has injuries up front, and United’s come at the back, which cancels everything out.

Todd’s Pick: Draw +220
