Premier League betting tips – Arsenal vs Fulham

The today’s London derby is between the teams of Arsenal and Fulham. The hosts are certainly not in its best shape, as they lose their last two away games and barely managed to win against the very weak QPR team with a goal in the last minute of the match.

Just the opposite, the guests from Fulham has another steady season. They are a team that is very hard to beat, which wins enough points. Fulham are in a series of four matches without a loss and if we exclude the loss from Manchester United this range can be increased to seven games. In fact, two of the three loses for Fulham this season came from both Manchester teams – City and United, which is quite normal.

The last season match on Emirates between these two ended with a draw 1-1, but Fulham won at the opposite one with 2-1.

Because of all this, it was a surprise for me to see that the bookies offer such low odds for an Arsenal victory. The proposal is only 1.5. At first glance, this is not very good odds, but it’s a big but. Arsenal show their signs of improvement and if we follow the trend from the recent seasons, Arsene Wenger’s boys will have matches with strong results in the next two or three games.

So far, Arsenal is the team that created the most chances in the league when they play at home. The exact number is 17 and the next team – Tottenham is with 15.5. This suggests that the main problem are the striker who miss too many goal attempts.

Personally I think the attack wont be such a huge problem for Arsenal in this match because of the poor Fulham defense. They allow more than two goals per match.

Therefore my bet for this match is a home win for Arsenal with AH -1 at odds of 1.91.
