Bolton vs Arsenal betting
Bolton take on Arsenal on Wednesday and both sides will looking to continue their winning ways from the FA Cup at the weekend. Bolton can’t climb the table with a victory here, but it will bring them closer to safety and further away from the dreaded drop zone. Arsenal on the other hand, are trying to keep themselves in touch with the top 4 and above Liverpool and Newcastle. Bolton won this game 2-1 last season to put a dent in Arsenal’s title bid, so can they cause an upset again?
Bolton vs Arsenal odds
Bolton are fairly long odds going into this game against Arsenal, and are best priced at 5.5 with Skybet. Their good home win last time out against Liverpool and the victory against Arsenal last season though, mean that’s an attractive price. The Trotters are on a good run of form recently and have won their last 3 games in all competitions, however, if they are to beat Arsenal they will have to improve in defence. Owen Coyle’s men have conceded a huge 47 goals in 22 games, which is the worst record in the league. They have also managed to score 28 though, which means betting on over 2.5 goals with odds of 2.2 from Ladbrokes is looking like a good bet. Ivan Klasnic has scored 7 goals in the league so far this season, so odds of 10.0 from Ladbrokes for the Croatian to open the scoring are worth looking at.
Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Aston Villa on Sunday was a welcome return to winning ways for Arsene Wenger, after his side suffered 3 straight defeats in the league before then. The Gunners are favourites going into this game, but will be cautious after their poor recent results. Wenger’s men also don’t have a great away record, losing 6 of their 11 matches this season. Despite this, Arsenal should have enough to get past Bolton, even though you feel they will concede at some stage. So, betting on a 2-1 away win is looking good, with odds of 8.5 available from Coral. There’s only one man to look at in terms of goals for Arsenal, Robin Van Persie. The striker is in red hot form after bagging 19 in 22 in the league this season, so odds on the Netherlands international to score 2 or more at Bet 365 are worth looking at.
