Arsenal vs Brentford – Betting Preview

The conditions were right for an upset, and Arsenal received a helping of humble pie at Goodison Park, a venue that hasn’t been kind to them lately, as a physically superior Everton team handed the Gunners just their second league loss of the year!

Arsenal Preview

Arsenal supporters are pleased with the threat of sanctions against Man City following their string of accusations for alleged financial violations, but any potential sanctions, including points deductions, won’t be implemented for some time, so keeping the champions at bay for the time being is of the utmost importance before the two teams face off at the Emirates on Wednesday.

Still unbeaten at home in the Premier League this season – only Newcastle United can also boast that feat – Arsenal welcome Brentford to the Emirates having won eight and drawn one of their last nine home fixtures in the top flight, albeit while keeping just two clean sheets in that time.

Brentford Preview

There was no relief for Southampton at the buzzing Bees’ stadium as they cruised to a 3-0 victory against their South Coast counterparts. The Gtech Community Stadium also hosted a match between a capital side and cellar battlers.

Ben Mee’s courageous header, Bryan Mbeumo’s goal, and Mathias Jensen’s third goal rounded out a fantastic afternoon for Thomas Frank’s team, who are profiting greatly from Chelsea and Liverpool’s woes in order to reclaim their rightful place in the European race.

Frank’s crop enter the Emirates Stadium in seventh place in the standings, just one point behind Brighton & Hove Albion even though the Seagulls have played one fewer game. Tottenham Hotspur are in fifth place with a game remaining.

1×2 Betting Odds

The league leaders should have enough left in the tank to edge a tight game and go eight points clear at the top, but Brentford will not make it simple for them. Arteta’s team has turned up the heat in London derbies this season. A return to home comforts is just what the doctor ordered for the league leaders!

Playing at the Emirates, Arsenal are the market favourites @ 1.46.

But, a tough afternoon could be in store for an Arsenal team that has been a little off lately, especially with Brentford putting together a string of defensive masterpieces during their impressive unbeaten run!

Don’t get me wrong they are still massive underdogs in this @ 8.09, but they can manufacture a surprise or two!

The possibility a stalemate and that points will be shared, stands @ 5.21.

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.

Given the quality of attacking talent that this Arsenal team has… no wonder the market expects this match to have a few goals.

Plus, this Brentford team has displayed their taste for goals too, but given how good Arsenal have been this season, expect a home win!
