Free bets for all if both teams score in Arsenal v Man Utd clash

Both teams found the back of the net in all three of Arsenal’s tussles with Manchester United last season. In fact, there have been goals for both teams in nine of the pair’s last 14 battles.

While that stat is important to remember when perusing Ladbrokes’ vast array of betting markets for Sunday’s latest edition of the rivalry, it’s even more vital when the bookmaker’s special offer for the match is considered.

Free bets will be handed out like Boots perfume samples at Christmas should both goalkeepers be beaten at the Emirates on Sunday, with losing bets on specific markets refunded in that form.

So, rather than wasting hard-earned cash on the 4/6 price about goals at both ends, why not take a shot at some of the more lucrative odds on offer in the qualifying markets?

The match-betting, correct score, first goalscorer and half time/full time markets are all in play here, with all four offering far better bang for your buck than the odds-on certainty that both teams will net.

Arsenal are currently even-money to win in north London, with the draw 5/2 and Manchester United 13/5 for a road triumph.

11/2 is the smallest-priced correct score available in Ladbrokes’ list, for a 1-1 draw, while Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud all share favouritism in the first-goalscorer stakes at 5/1.

There’s even a whopping 33/1 chance to back in the half time/full time pot of prices, which would land should the hosts hold a lead at the break and the visitors come back and win.

With all these options standing to secure a serious windfall* should they come in, or be refunded should they lose and both teams score, there can really be no excuse for avoiding Ladbrokes’ particularly appealing special offer.
