Betting Preview and Match Odds - Arsenal vs. Manchester United - April 29th, 2013

Arsenal vs. Manchester United - Matchup and Team LogosArsenal are hosts to the newly-crowned champions Manchester United in the 35th round of the English Premier League on Sunday, April 29th, 2013 with a kick-off at 4pm local time.

If Sir Alex Ferguson chooses to play him, this will be the first time the EPL's leading scorer Robin van Persie plays at the Emirates Stadium since leaving Arsenal where he spent time from 2004 to 2012.

Last season (Jan 2012) Arsenal lost to Man Utd 1-2 in London, followed by another loss with the same score at Old Trafford in the current season (Nov 2012).

Manchester United are in good form right now and have managed to get 7 points out of their last 3 matches with wins over Aston Villa (3-0) and Stoke (0-2) as well as a draw with West Ham (2-2).

Arsenal too have 7 points out of their last 3 games with victories vs. Fulham (0-1) and Norwich (3-1) and a draw vs. Everton (0-0).

Arsenal are the favourites to win at home mainly because of the fact that Man Utd have already won the title and will most likely play some of their bench players on Sunday. Arsenal are hungry for points as they continue to battle with Chelsea and Tottenham for two remaining spots that lead to the UEFA Champions League next season assuming that Manchester City have already qualified.

Arsenal 6/5
Draw 13/5
Man Utd 12/5

A $100 bet on Arsenal returns $120 in profit while the same bet on Manchester United returns $240 in profit if successful.

Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott are the favourites to score at 7/5 (bet $100 to profit $140) followed by Javier Hernandez and Yao Gervinho at 8/5 (bet $100 to profit $160).

This could be a really entertaining match between two giants of English football. Can Arsenal pull it together and get three much needed points vs. the new champions or will Manchester United prove to be too big of a bite even fielding some of their less played players.
