Prediction Fotball: Arsenal - West Bromwich, Premier Leauge
- Title : Prediction Fotball: Arsenal - West Bromwich, Premier Leauge
Arsenal hosts West Brom in the league on saturday. Arsenal won 1, lost 2 of the last 5 while West Brom lost 1, won 2 ... Arsenal is also winless in 5 homegames while West Brom only won 1 of the last 5 awaygames. Arsenal even won 4 of the last 6 h2h games incl most recent one to nil. Arsenal to win, 3-0?
Arsenal have won just three of their last 11 games and are winless at ghome since beating Spurs in mid-March. But........
This game is scary only because nobody really knows if West Brom will care enough to show up. The Baggies technically haven’t been relegated yet, but it would take miracles from Jewish, Christian and Mormon Jesus to get them over the line here. Needless to say, I don’t expect them to get that sorted out. As long as they have something to play for (regardless of how improbable), though, they’re still a threat to come out and make an opponent uncomfortable for 90 minutes. I like Arsenal here, in all honesty, but at the 1.44money just isn’t right.
The over, on the other hand, absolutely is. West Brom have the worst defensive record in the league, and give up about 2 goals per game. Add in that Arsenal are still (maybe?) fighting for European spots, and they could come out strong enough to take this over on their own. The midweek embarrassment might be a bit motivating as well, especially with Arteta coaching for his job. West Brom have some offensive quality of their own (at least for a club getting relegated), and will press a Gunners’ side that has lapsed a bit in defensive form over the last couple of months. Really, this game all comes down to whether these teams have enough in them to go for it, or if they play a lifeless 90 minutes where they just wait for the clock to run. I think both will have the motivation and quality to fight for a win, and I expect we get 3 or 4 in this one. At 1,78 its not my favorite bet on the weekend, but its right for the money.
