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 Newcastle...
Tuesday night’s exceptional display saw Arsenal put Italian leaders AC Milan to the sword and while progression remained just one step too far, attention must quickly be restored to the job in hand. Newcastle head to Emirates Stadium on Monday facing the task of halting an Arsenal side which has scored 18 times in its last four home fixtures.
Alan Pardew's side have outperformed everybody's expectations this season but head into this game winless in three after two draws and a heavy 5-0 defeat to Tottenham.
Our Football Predictor gives Arsenal a 74% chance of victory so it is no surprise that an Arsenal win is only available at 1/2. For more value, why not back the Gunners to win by a margin of two or more goals at 6/5?
However, while our Football Predictor remains confident of an Arsenal win, the last two results between the teams have been draws. The draw is priced at 31/10 but you can get 17/2 for the game to remain goalless. Or how about fewer than 1.5 goals at 7/2?
While there is good value in these low-scoring outcomes, Arsenal have found their goalscoring touch at Emirates Stadium of late. So 7/2 for more than 4.5 goals in the game certainly looks appealing.
Robin van Persie continues to find the net on a regular basis and the Dutchman is 2/1 to open the scoring tonight. If you are looking for a more rewarding bet, Laurent Koscielny weighed in with the first goal on Tuesday night and is priced at 11/1 to do the same in this game.
Fancy our tip? GunnersGaming have Arsenal down to win 3-1 at a tempting 10/1.
