Best Odds: Arsenal v Wigan
Arsenal are a top priced 1.36 with bet365 and Coral to beat FA Cup winners Wigan at the Emirates Stadium, and look worthy odds-on shots to do just that.
The Gunners come into the game having won seven of their last nine matches, a run which currently sees them sit in fifth position with two games to play.
Victory in this and their final game away at Newcastle will guarantee them fourth place and automatic qualification for the Champions League.
Their opponent’s also need three points to realistically avoid relegation, but it’s going to be a big ask for Roberto Martinez’s men to be at their best for this given that they have had little time to get over their 1-0 win over Manchester City at Wembley on Saturday.
That was a gruelling encounter, and last season’s FA winners’ Chelsea were thrashed 4-1 by Liverpool in their first game after the final.
Everything suggests that Arsenal will prove too strong for the Latics, but it is still likely to be a hard fought affair and I don’t think their will be many goals.
Indeed, the stats reveal that Arsenal’s last four Premier League games have all gone under 2.5 goals and that makes the 2.88 on offer with BetVictor about it happening again look well worth a wager.
Three of those games have also gone under 1.5 goals, so that also looks worth considering at 6.5 with BetVictor and Coral.
If there aren’t going to be many goals, then backing the Gunners to win 1-0 in the correct score market could be a bit of value at 10.5 with BetVictor.
The other punt that appeals is for Arsenal to win this to nil at a best priced 2.5 with Coral as they have done so in two of their last three matches and face a side who have failed to net in three of their last games on the road.
