Arsenal v Fulham betting
Two sides with contrasting recent form clash in a London derby on Saturday evening. Arsenal have been in blistering form, climbing the table, but Fulham have had a stop, start first 11 games. A win here could be big for both teams but can Fulham really upset the odds? It looks a tall order considering they haven’t won any of their last 10 visits to Arsenal, and have only managed 2 draws.
Arseanl v Fulham odds
Arsenal have been in fantastic form recently, winning their last 5 games in the Premier League. They’ve moved up to 7th in the league table, but only 3 points outside of the Champions League places. It’s quite a turn around, and it’s mostly down to Robin Van Persie, who has now scored an unbelievable 31 goals in 29 league games this calendar year. The Dutchman is looking great value at 4.0 with Skybet to score 2 or more goals during the game. Arsenal’s impressive recent run also makes them firm favourites and so there isn’t much value in a home win. So betting on a 2-0 correct score is looking much better value with odds of 7.5 from Skybet. If you needed any more convincing, Arsenal have won 5 of their 6 home games so far this season, with the 1 defeat coming against Liverpool in August.
It’s safe to say that Fulham have really struggled to juggle the Europa League with the Premier league this season, and they currently lie in a disappointing 16th place. Only 2 points off the relegation zone, Fulham’s season started as far back as June, and it’s starting to tell. They’ve only won 1 of their last 5 games in the league, collecting just 4 points on the way. Because of this, the Cottagers are clear outsiders at 9.0 with Betfred. Martin Jol’s men haven’t been too bad at the back this season, conceding only 15, but they’ve only managed to score 14. This is with the 6 goals they scored in 1 game against Queens Park Rangers, so betting on under 2.5 goals with odds of 1.67 at Stan James looks sensible. Andy Johnson has bagged 3 league goals this season and is decent odds at 4.5 with Skybet to score at any time.
