BRENTFORD V ARSENAL BET BUILDER TIPS: 17/1 Prediction for the Season Opener
A new season brings more hope and expectation for Arsenal fans, but they face a tricky trip to newly-promoted Brentford on Friday night and we are kicking off the new season with our first bet builder tip of the campaign.
In true style, Arsenal have had a shocking pre-season campaign, losing three of their four matches and scraping a draw against Scottish Champions Rangers. They lost 1-0 to Tottenham, 2-1 to Chelsea and 2-1 to Hibernian in their other matches.
Brentford beat Valencia 2-1 in their latest friendly and lost just one of their six matches (1-0 vs West Ham). The Bees drew 2-2 with Manchester United and beat Watford, Boreham Wood and Bournemouth.
Now onto the opening fixture of the new Premier League season and our Brentford vs Arsenal bet builder tips.

Brentford vs Arsenal Bet Builder Tip
- Nicolas Pepe – Player To Have 2 Or More Shots On Target
- Yes – Both teams to Score?
- Ivan Toney – Anytime Goalscorer
- Bryan Mbeumo – Player To Have 1 Or More Shots On Target
2+ Shots on Target: Nicolas Pepe
Pepe splits the Arsenal fans opinions but he has had a decent pre-season and looks set to be a big part of Mikel Arteta’s team this season. Brentford will play without fear in this match, and throughout this season and that means chances at both ends. Pepe isn’t afraid of shooting and he’s played a big part in Arsenal’s friendly matches this summer, so we’re tipping him to have 2 or more shots on target in this one.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
An open game is expected here and this could lead to an exciting fixture to open up the new Premier League season. The Gunners are unlikely to enjoy this trip to Brentford’s new stadium but with Aubameyang, Lacazette and Pepe in their side, it is hard to see them not scoring. Brentford will be relying on last season’s Championship top goalscorer Ivan Toney to get the goals and with Arsenal’s poor defensive record through pre-season, it would be no surprise to see Brentford register here.
Anytime Goalscorer: Ivan Toney
The Brentford striker will want to continue where he left off last season and being on penalty duty always increases the chances of an anytime goalscorer bet landing. It remains to be seen whether he can do it at this level but against this Arsenal side, on home soil, you can bet he will get chances in front of goal.
1+ Shots on Target: Bryan Mbeuno
The French winger went under the radar last season with Toney stealing all the headlines, but he is a quality player himself and scored in the pre-season friendly against Manchester United. Last season he registered eight goals and 10 assists in the Championship and does get into attacking positions from his left-wing position. Hopefully, he can test the Arsenal goalkeeper on Friday to complete our bet builder.
