GunnersGaming by Betsson, Arsenal’s Official Betting Partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of tonight’s match against Everton...
After a weekend without a game, Arsenal return to action with a testing trip to Goodison Park to take on Everton. Their impressive home form has already seen them beat Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham in 2012. However, Arsenal will be hoping to put their extra rest to good advantage and continue to apply the high-pressing game that has proved so successful in recent weeks.
Our Football Predictor gives Arsenal a 50 per cent chance of victory so with that in mind, backing the Gunners to win at 11/8 looks a good bet. It also predicts that an Arsenal 1-0 win is the most likely outcome at a tempting 6/1. That would represent a repeat of December’s result at Emirates Stadium.
Everton have struggled for goals this season and only two sides in the league have scored fewer than the 28 the Toffees have managed. With that lack of firepower, David Moyes’ side rely on keeping the game tight so it is no surprise that Arsenal have won their last three games against Everton by a single goal. It is 3/1 for that trend to continue.
Arsenal have won their last five games despite going behind in four of them, so why not back them to win from a losing position again at an attractive 7/1?
Robin van Persie has scored five career goals against the Toffees and has twice scored the first goal against them, so why not back him to score first at 3/1?
Other than Van Persie, Thomas Vermaelen is the only current Arsenal player to have scored against Everton at Goodison Park and the Belgian is a rewarding 7/1 to repeat that feat.
GunenrsGaming tip Arsenal to win 2-1, available at 7/1.
