Gunners top-priced to beat Southampton

Posted on Posted in Sponsored

Arsenal are a top priced 1.73 with Betfred to beat Southampton at St Mary’s and look good value to do just that.

The Gunners are bidding to make it make it four Premier League wins on the bounce following their 7-3 drubbing of Newcastle at the Emirates on Saturday.

Theo Walcott was outstanding in that game, and a hat-trick means that he is now the top scorer for Arsenal in the league with 8.

He looks the obvious choice in the first goalscorer market given his current mood, and can be backed at a standout 6.5 with bet365.

In the anytime scorer market one player that looks a bit of value if in the starting line-up is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who cab be backed at 3.6 with Paddy Power to score against his former club.

As far as the stats are concerned, Arsenal have won 36 of the 71 league meetings between the two sides and they beat the Saints 6-1 the last time they met at the Emirates back in September.

However I can’t envisage such a wide margin victory in this as Nigel Adkins’ side did well to score three in their 3-3 draw at Stoke last Saturday on a ground where it is notoriously hard to come away with anything.

I like the look of a 2-1 or 3-1 win for Arsenal and those scorelines are priced up at 9.5 and 12 respectively with bet365.

the other bet that really appeals is for their to be over 2.5 goals at the 1.67 on offer with Betfred as Arsenal have managed to score 14 in their last 3 games.
