Premier League betting – Arsenal vs Everton
Arsenal vs Everton betting preview
Arsenal Form: WDWDWW Position: 2nd
Arsenal have had a great start to the year, unbeaten in 6 league games, through to the final of the Carling Cup and in the 5th round draw for the FA Cup after knocking out Huddersfield on Sunday. They’re also the form team in the division, winning 4 of their last 6, scoring 14 goals and only conceding 3. Cesc Fabregas scored his 8th goal of the season at the weekend and the attacking midfielder may be pushed further forward with the absence of Samir Nasri. With this in mind, the Spaniard is a great price at 6/1 with Bet365 to open the scoring. Sebastien Squillaci is banned for the visit of Everton but the Gunners remain firm favourites and best priced at 4/9 with Stan James and various others.
Everton Form: WDLWDD Position: 14th
Everton held out for a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup 4th round at home against Chelsea at the weekend but face a tough game midweek when they travel to Arsenal. The Tofees will take heart from some good performances against top sides this season, after winning at Manchester City and drawing away at Chelsea, and at home against Manchester United. The problem for Everton this season though, has been scoring goals, only managing 29 in the league and the midweek game should still come too son for Tim Cahill who is on international duty with Australia. Louis Saha scored only his 4th goal of the season at the weekend, but the Frenchman looks set to start at the Emirates on Tuesday and is a good price at 15/4 with Bet365 to find the back of the net at any time.
Match Prediction Arsenal WIN best priced at 4/9 Stan James
Arsenal should be too strong for an Everton side short on firepower. Although Samir Nasri is out for the Gunners, Robin Van Persie has been back to his clinical best in recent weeks and should start after being rested on Sunday. A Half Time/ Full Time of Draw/Arsenal is showing good value for money at 10/3 with Betfred, as Arsenal may struggle at first to break down an Everton side that have conceded just 14 goals away from home this season, the same amount as Manchester United. While a 2-0 Arsenal win is showing further good value for money at 13/2 with Unibet.
HT/ FT – Draw/Arsenal – 10/3 Betfred
2-0 Arsenal WIN – 11/2 Paddy Power
Van Persie 1st goal scorer + Arsenal WIN – 18/5 William Hill
