Arsenal vs Brentford – Betting Preview

Arsenal returns to the Emirates on Saturday for a London derby against Brentford in the Premier League, looking to avoid a third straight loss in all competitions.

Last time out, Mikel Arteta’s team suffered a 1-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Everton, while the Bees strolled to a 3-0 victory over Southampton to further their European aspirations!

Arsenal Preview

Arsenal, on the other hand, are at the top of the league table at the moment and have been exceptional so far this season. The Gunners slumped to a shock 1-0 defeat at the hands of Everton in their previous game and will need to bounce back this weekend.

Everton put in the kind of effort that would have delighted the former Burnley manager to no end while being coached by football realist Sean Dyche, and they were rewarded on the hour mark when James Tarkowski simply outmuscled Martin Odegaard to head in a corner.

Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-0 victory over Manchester City, though, had North London in jubilation. With a game remaining, the Gunners now lead the league by five points with a game in hand, and a win would give them a temporary eight-point advantage.

Brentford Preview

With their victory over Southampton, Brentford’s Premier League unbeaten streak now stands at an astounding nine games!

Frank’s tenacious defence has only allowed one goal in their previous five games in the top level, keeping three consecutive clean sheets.

However, Brentford has only triumphed twice away from home this year—albeit, one of those victories came at Man City—and Arsenal cruised to a 3-0 victory at the Gtech Community Stadium in September.

That match will be most remembered for the Premier League’s youngest-ever player, 15-year-old Ethan Nwaneri, who made his debut in that contest.

1×2 Betting Odds

After their loss to Everton, Arsenal, who has been in strong form this season, will need to make a statement. This week, the Gunners could significantly extend their lead at the top of the league standings, thus they must perform well in this match.

And the market believes that they will! They are the favourites in this one @ 1.48.

On their best days, Brentford is a formidable opponent and is currently in good form. However, Arsenal appears to be the superior team and should be able to prevail in this match.

Brentford to win stands @ 8.01.

The market odds for a draw and points dropped for Arsenal, stands @ 5.19.

Total goals over/under

The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.77.

While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.23.

Four of Arsenal’s last six outings in all competitions have produced fewer than three goals and four of Brentford’s last six fixtures have also witnessed under 2.5 goals scored.

Although the market tilts towards ‘over 2.5 goals’, this one could end up being a tightly fought low scoring contest!
