Why Bet on Arsenal?

Arsenal need points, if they are to fulfill their goal of finally winning the Premier League, which has eluded them since 2004 in the Thierry Henry era. 

The Gunners last league game ended in a 2-1 defeat against Fulham. Although Mikel Arteta’s team was ahead on the scoreboard with a goal by Bukayo Saka, the celebrations of Raúl Jiménez and Bobby De Cordova-Reid sealed the points. 

After this loss, Arsenal dropped to fourth place with 40 points, five behind Liverpool. Their record is 12 wins, four draws, and four defeats. 

But the problem for the London side is that they have won only one of their last seven matches in all competitions. In the Premier League, they have two defeats in a row, and to make matters worse, against teams that are not at the top of the table, such as West Ham and Fulham, precisely two Londoners such as Crystal Palace. 

Within the Gunners squad, the most dangerous player is Bukayo Saka, who has six goals and six assists. But precisely, the fact that their best scorer has only half a dozen goals is a problem. That is evidenced by the fact that within the top 5 teams, they have scored the fewest goals: 37. 

Among Arteta’s injured players are Oleksandr Zinchenko, Thomas Partey, and Fabio Vieira, while Mohamed Elneny is with Egypt in the African Cup of Nations.

Why Bet on Crystal Palace?

As has been their custom in recent times, Crystal Palace are struggling in the lower half of the Premier League table, narrowly avoiding relegation. 

The team’s last match ended with a 3-1 victory over Brentford, thanks to goals from Michael Olise, with a brace, and Eberechi Eze. 

With these three points, Palace reached 14th place with 21 units, after five wins, six draws, and nine defeats. They have 22 goals scored, and 29 conceded. 

The big problem for Roy Hodgson’s team is that, offensively, they have little to offer, as they are the third-worst offensive team in the Premier League. Their best scorer so far is Frenchman Odsonne Edouard. 

Crystal Palace has a four-game winless streak away from home, with two draws and two defeats. Their last win in this condition dates back to November 3rd when they beat Burnley 2-0. 

The most relevant absentees for Hodgson are defender Joel Ward and recovering midfielder Cheick Doucouré.

Final Betting Analysis: Arsenal vs. Crystal Palace

Arsenal’s poor moment must end at some point. In front of their home fans and against an opponent like Crystal Palace, it is time to smile again for Mikel Arteta. The win in this match will be for the locals. 

The numbers at Gambyl Exchange have Arsenal as the favorite, as the Moneyline for them shows 1.30. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace has 10.00, and the draw is at 5.00. 

The last time the Gunners hosted Palace, they won 4-1, with goals from Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka (2), and Granit Xhaka, while this season they already met, and Arsenal won 0-1 with a goal from Martin Odegaard. 

Go for a win in Arsenal’s Moneyline. If you bet $100 at 1.30, you will gain $130 for a total payout of $230.
