Arsenal favourites to beat Everton

Posted on Posted in Arsenal blog
If that stats are anything to go by then the bookies have got it spot-on in going a top priced 1.57 to beat Everton at the Emirates this weekend.
The Gunners have won six and lost none of the last eight Premier League games against the Toffees and have taken 19 points from their last seven games.
That’s the same number of points that they took from the previous 18 games, and clearly shows what terrific form they have been in of late

Arsene Wenger took the decision to rest virtually all of his first choice X11 for the midweek Champions League trip to Olympiakos, and it was a shrewd move given that they had already qualified and had everything to lose but nothing to gain by risking their key men.
It means that he will be able to field his first choice team for this, and you have to think that they will comfortably prove to strong for a struggling Everton side and land the odds of 1.57 available with Betfred and Paddy Power.
Having said that it would be no surprise to see the visitors net a goal as they have have scored 11 goals in the last 11 meetings between the two sides. They have failed to score just once, but have only netted more than one goal on one occasion.
That stat throws up some interesting punts in the correct score market, and I fancy Arsenal to win 2-1 or 3-1.
The former is an 8 chance with bet365, whilst the latter is a juicy looking 12 with Boylesports and Paddy Power.
I would suggest a punt on both to hopefully ensure a decent profit.
As far as who will net the first, well their are no prizes for guessing that Robin van Persie tops the bookmakers lists at around the 4.33 mark.
Given his exploits this season that is a fair price, but it is Alex Oxlade Chamberlain that catches my eye at the 10 on offer with Betfred and Paddy Power.
He is as short as just 5.5 with bet365, so at nearly double those odds has to be a bit of value.
Given the aforementioned scoring record of Everton I also like the look of the 1.83 on offer with bet365 and Betfred about both sides netting.
