Bet: Total Match Goals Over 3.5

In the game between two title challengers Arsenal is considered by bookmakers to be an underdog with odds of 3.40. Moreover a Draw has the same 3.40. And this is despite the fact that Gunners are dividing the second position in the standings with 34 points. Sports betting experts admit Arsène Wenger’s side is very unstable loosing on Tuesday to Everton after three wins in a row. According to bets it was the first away defeat of Londoners in the season.

At the same time Manchester City was named by the bookmakers as a favourite of this match with odds of 2.20. When choosing bets remember that The Citizens experienced a crisis in early December by losing two games in a row in Premier League and drawing at home with Celtic in Champions League. The most painful was the defeat from reigning champion Leicester City 2-4. But Pep Guardiola managed to correct the situation and in order of betting won on Wednesday against Watford 2-0.

Sports betting experts note that Manchester City has big problems in matches against top-clubs this season. The Citizens had won only in mancunian derby in Premier League and have lost to Barcelona in Champions League and to Tottenham and Chelsea. Moreover playing on Etihad Stadium is not a guarantee for Guardiola’s side to get a victory. Man City cut off a 4-match series at home without a win overcoming Watford. So bets assume that “Double Chance: Arsenal Or Draw” (1.67) is quite possible. Especially since the Gunners showed a solid performance on away pitches.

As to goal performance both teams have brilliant attacking lines. So we can expect plenty of goals and the bets like “Both Teams To Score: Yes” (1.53) may go through. Moreover Total Match Goals Over 2.5 (1.60) is quite realistic. You can even think of Total Match Goals Over 3.5 with risky odds of 2.62. At the same time you may try some additional propositions, for example, “Both Score No Draw: Yes” (2.25). For exotic lovers such variant as “Draw and Both Teams To Score” (4.20) is proposed as well.
