Have you worked out your bets for the big game at the Emirates? We’d be keen to hear what they are (leave them in the comments below).
As usual, we have £10 to spend on Arsenal’s game, with all our profits (!) will be going to charity :)
After shipping 8 goals in just one match, its hard to be too confident in Arsenal’s defence, even if they do have a Germany’s captain running it this time around. That said, Swansea have struggled to score at all in the Premier League so far this season, so they might be just the team the Gunners need to play right now! With all the new players coming in, it might not be as easy as some commentators think it will be – fluent passing only comes after weeks and weeks of passing to each-other (and knowing where each-other will be) in training. Arteta hasn’t had that yet.
Needless to say, we think Arsenal still have enough about them to win this, though it might not be comfortable. We’re taking a slim Arsenal win of 2-1 (available at 15/2 with Paddy Power – and get a free bet if you’re just opening your account now!)
With Arsenal having struggled to get any form of consistency so far this season, we don’t really fancy our chances on the handicaps, ht/ft or even bookings! Throughout their poor run of results there has been one player who has continued to impress us though – Theo Walcott. He was instrumental in much of Arsenal’s good attacking play last week, and has scored in 3 of the last 4 matches for the Gunners. It’s for this reason we’re backing him to be an anytime goalscorer (at 2/1 with Bet Clic)
Shove this bet on with Marcel Desailly’s favourite bookmakers and you can’t lose – because it’s your first bet, if Walcott doesn’t score then you will get your money back. This isn’t like a normal free-bet where they make you spend it on the site, you can actually just take your money back. If you stuck £30 on (the maximum Bet Clic will refund you) you would walk away £90! All completely risk-free!
