Arsenal v Manchester UTD Tips

Arsenal take on Manchester UTD in the live Super Sunday clash in the EPL this week, looking to bounce back from a thrilling 3:2 defeat to Swansea, while Manchester UTD go into the game full of confidence following a 3:0 stroll v Bolton.

Arsenal v Manchester UTD key stats / info
With 60% of Arsenal home games in the Premier League this season and 60% of Manchester UTD's games on the road having both seen under 2.5 goals, this is a case of the stats being misleading. Manchester UTD have scored 15 goals in their last 5 EPL games with Arsenal averaging almost 2 goals a game in total. Arsenal have scored in 9/10 home games while UTD have scored in 6 on the road.

Arsenal v Manchester UTD potential lineup / game pattern

As mentioned, the stats look a bit misleading in this one. I'm expecting both teams to play with only one holding midfielder and with plenty of attacking players on show, the game looks set to be end to end. Paul Scholes will add an extra creative dimension in the Man UTD midfield and look for Wayne Rooney to benefit from his passing abilities and vision and exploit the lack of pace of Mertesacker in the potential absence of Vermaelen for Arsenal. Rooney is coming off a brace in his last away game vs Man City and I fancy him to get chances in this one. Thierry Henry will undergo a fitness test before it's known if he will renew acquaintances against the old enemy for Arsenal.

Arsenal v Manchester UTD advised tips

Tip 2: Both teams to score @ 4/6 (general)
Tip 3: Wayne Rooney anytime scorer for Man UTD @ 6/4 (Ladbrokes)

Golf Player Profiles



Please note that player attribute ratings are derived from the official PGA Tour and European Tour golf stats, and updated with a rolling average each golf betting year for precision.


Bryan Nicholson is the pioneer of the progressive form and course fit ratings for golf betting, with the associated progressive form model and course fit profiling model.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan also pioneered the concept of Expected Strokes Gained Course Fit (xSGF) in golf betting. xSGF can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form... See more with our calculators and betting tools
