David Moyes's men have recovered from their underwhelming start to the season to win four of their last five games without tasting defeat and are favourites at 8/13 (1.62) with bet365 to maintain that form with another victory.
However, the Bluebirds have already seen off Manchester City at the Cardiff City Stadium since returning to the Premier League and are available at 9/2 (5.50) to pull off another shock win against their neighbours.
The visitors are yet to draw on the road in the league this season but you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on them settling for a point in this one.
While the victory over Arsenal was hardly one of the most aesthetically pleasing performances ever put in by a Red Devils team, the fans will have been delighted to see their side demonstrate some of the resilience that has been sorely lacking at times this campaign.
Moyes's charges conceded sloppy goals against a number of the league's most ineffective attacks so far this season, including Sunderland, Stoke City, Fulham and West Brom, while they are yet to keep a single clean sheet away from home.
Although Malky Mackay's side are unlikely to put in a repeat performance of their 3-2 win over City, they will be confident of finding the net with the passionate home crowd behind them and another entertaining match looks likely.
There were five goals scored when United visited Swansea City on the opening day of the season and odds of 4/5 (1.80) look too good to pass up on at least three going in against more Welsh opposition on Sunday, in a bet that would have paid out in four of the visitors' five away league fixtures.
