A Look at Ludogorets’ Betting Odds:

Ludogorets’ forwards are clearly in fine fettle, scoring nine goals since being walloped 6-0 at the Emirates two weeks back, but their leaky defence is an obvious problem against a side of Arsenal’s quality.

They’re a massive 35/4 to beat the Gunners, but it’s tough to imagine many being tempted by those odds. A better bet might be the 14/5 about Ludogorets scoring the first goal, as they have done in each of their last six at base camp.

Another over 3.5-goal installment must be worth a punt at 6/5 too, having copped in eight matches in succession where the Bulgarians have featured.

A Look at Arsenal’s Betting Odds:

Ludogorets shipped three last time out and with the Gunners’ attack back to their best against Sunderland at the weekend, expect a convincing away win here. It’s 17/50 that Arsenal win, but the 2/1 about them overcoming a two-goal handicap to prevail offers better value.

To combine a couple of suggested punts, the 8/5 about the visitors prevailing in a game that sees at least four goals scored looks as safe a bet as any.
