GunnersGaming by Betsson, Arsenal’s Official Betting Partner, give us the lowdown on some of the markets on offer ahead of tonight’s midweek match against Bolton...
The games continue to come thick and fast with midweek Premier League action the next item on the Gunners' agenda. Manchester City and Chelsea both dropped points last night giving Arsenal a chance to close the gap if they are able to return from the Reebok Stadium with all three points.
After Sunday’s thrilling FA Cup victory, Arsenal fans will be hoping the team can use that momentum to take control of the game from the outset. However, although Bolton find themselves perilously close to the relegation places, they have enjoyed a good patch of form through January, collecting four wins including an impressive 3-1 win over Liverpool.
The Gunners on the other hand are still in search of their first Premier League victory of 2012 after a disappointing run of losses. Arsène Wenger will be hoping that Sunday’s heroics provide the spark for the team to go on another run of positive results. Sagna, Arteta and Henry are all in contention for starting places which will bring both experience and options to the squad. Arteta is priced at a little under 9/2 (5.45) and Henry 6/5 (2.2) to make their presence felt by scoring at any time.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a player that certainly looks full of confidence and it is surely only a matter of time before he finds the net. Back him to do so tonight at 11/4 (3.75).
The Gunners won the reverse fixture 3-0 as well as progressing at the expense of the Trotters in the Carling Cup so will be hopeful of gaining another positive outcome. Back them to win at 3/4 (1.75) or why not take the rewarding GunnersGaming tip of a 2-0 Arsenal win currently priced at a little under 13/2 (7.30).
Arsenal doubled their number of penalties for the season with two in Sunday’s match with Aston Villa, could there be another in tonight’s game (for either team) priced at 12/5 (3.45)?
For those that enjoy the stats of the game, the Gunners average 1.8 yellow cards per game and Bolton 1.5, so why not bet with the odds of there being less than 3.5 cards in the game priced at Evens (2.02). The Trotters average 4.9 corners per match, so there would appear good value in them getting over 4.5 at home, again priced at Evens (2.0).
