A second London derby in less than a seven days for West Ham and they’ll hope to take advantage of some European induced weariness and pick up six points in the capital this week.
Arsenal go into this heavy favourites as you’d expect, the best price for them being with Betdaq at 24/25, whilst Pinnacle offer top odds on the draw at 36/13. If you fancy West Ham to spring an upset bet with Ladbrokes, who will give you 16/5 on the Hammers.
Since their first European night of the season, Arsenal have failed to win in the league, but their opponents since then have been Manchester City and Chelsea, so expect that trend to change here. West Ham have allowed five goals in their six Premier League games this season, but it is hard to see them maintaining this impressive a record when Arsenal visit the Boleyn. Their attack has looked strong, and their defence has been in mean fashion, with only Chelsea conceding fewer, both of which point towards 3 points heading to North London with the Arsenal team bus. Arsenal to win to nil looks appealing at 11/4 with Blue Square.
Since Arsenal found the back of the net for the first time this season in their 3rd match, they have only failed to score in the first half once this season, against Man City, so backing them to win HT/FT looks appealing, even more so with odds of just over 2/1 being offered by Stan James.
Arsenal haven’t won a game by a single goal this season, and it’s unlikely that will change here. But with their forwards been restricted to 2 low scoring games in the league in a row, don’t be surprised to see it even being higher than a 2 goal victory. 3-0 correct score is 22/1 with Betfair and generally 16/1 with the highstreet bookies.
