Man Utd ahead of Arsenal in the betting for the Premier League

by Up Front

Despite a very impressive Community Shield win this afternoon, Arsenal are still behind Manchester Utd in the betting odds for the Premier League title.

Unsurprisingly Chelsea and Man City lead the way by a bit of a margin, but it’s quite surprising to see leading odds makers are backing Louis van Gaal’s men ahead of Arsenal in the title race. Although they are without European distraction this season, United have a major mountain to climb having fell to seventh place last season and 20 points behind champions Man City.

Liverpool are also behind United, but considering the loss of Luis Suarez and the increased schedule they’ll have to take on it’s very understandable. Arsenal on the other hand have a part of the furniture in Europe since Arsene Wenger took over, never finishing outside England’s top four.
