2016/17 Premier League
Published: 12:25 14/05/2015
Manchester United play host to Arsenal in an eagerly anticipated Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Sunday and it's the perfect opportunity to make the most of the football betting offers at bet365.
The Red Devils halted a slump of three successive defeats with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace last week - as Juan Mata’s penalty and Marouane Fellaini’s second half strike allowed them to record their first win since their 4-2 derby win over Manchester City on 12 April.
With the result at Selhurst Park last Saturday, Louis van Gaal’s side are now just one win away from securing a top-four finish and assuring themselves of Champions League qualification once again.
Therefore, with only two games to go, expect the hosts to come flying out of the blocks from the first whistle - as they look to avoid leaving it to the final day of the season.
On the flip side, Arsenal saw an impressive 10-game unbeaten run come to an end on Monday night - after Swansea City benefited from goal-line technology to be awarded the only goal of the game.
The FA Cup finalists - and defending champions - recorded a 2-1 win at Old Trafford back in the Sixth Round to knock out Man Utd, but will still have to be wary about become the victims of back-to-back Premier League doubles - after losing 2-1 to the Mancunians on the back of another Swansea defeat in November.
Arsenal desperately need a win as they attempt to chase down United’s city rivals for second spot, so it's likely to be a fantastic watch on Sky Sports 1 at 4pm.
Plenty of football fans will be having a bet to enhance their enjoyment of the action, with both casual punters and professional gamblers able to get more from their betting by using some of the football offers on bet365.
Bore Draw Money Back
Man United have only recorded two 0-0 draws in the Premier League this season, while the Gunners’ only no-score draw came against champions Chelsea at the end of last month. Therefore, it would appear as though this game has goals written all over it.
Most viewers will be hoping for an entertaining game that lives up to its billing but, if the game does end 0-0, punters staking on the Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time and Scorecast markets for Man United v Arsenal with bet365 will at least have their bets protected by a refund of losing stakes thanks to the firm's bore-draw promotion.
Each-Way First Goalscorers
Despite a picking up a knock in the last game, Wayne Rooney will be the go-to selection for Man United backers - as the England captain has netted 12 goals in the Premier League this season, so he rates as a worthy favourite in the First Goalscorer market.
Then there's Robin van Persie (10), Mata (nine) and a host of midfielders looking to get in on the action, not to mention defender Chris Smalling (four) who can also pop up with an important header.
Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud are separated by just two goals in the Premier League top scorers charts - at 16 and 14 goals respectively - and both will be hoping to pounce on the break if the home side over-commit in attack.
Set-piece specialist Santi Cazorla has also been in among the goals this season and is likely to be available at more favourable odds, while Arsenal have plenty of other offensive contenders too, such as Aaron Ramsey Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck, who are capable of creating an opportunity.
A great feature at bet365 is the ability to back each-way first goalscorers - settled on all goalscorers at 1/3 odds for unlimited places in 90 minutes play. It means that you can have an each-way First Goalscorer bet on Man United v Arsenal and be safe in the knowledge that bet365 will pay out if your player scores anytime during the game.
There is another safety net offered by bet365, with the option to Cash Out your bet in-play if the game looks to be going against your bet or you just want to be sure of a profit.
With this feature, you can Cash Out a bet in its entirety or you can partially Cash Out your bet and leave the remainder of your stake to run.
If you're heading for a winning bet but the other team is threatening to score, you can cut and run with the returns that bet365 offer at that time by clicking on the Cash Out button located below your selection(s).
