It’s now seven wins in a row for Arsenal in the Premier League, the best run of any team this season, so 4/7 about another Gunners triumph at Burnley, the top flight’s 19th-placed side, looks like buying money.
That being said, both the visitors’ form on the road, and Sean Dyche’s side’s excellent record at home, suggests there are a few better bets out there.
Arsenal’s last six away games on British soil, five of them wins, have seen both teams score, and the Clarets have bagged at least once in in 11 of 14 Turf Moor fixtures since mid-October, so Arsene Wenger’s in-form team to prevail despite Burnley getting on the scoresheet looks a must at 5/2.
For who might get these goals, Olivier Giroud is a must in the anytime market at 9/10, as the French international has bagged in eight of his last ten club appearances, with 15 in his past 19 outings.
However, the fact that Giroud has broken the deadlock in five of Arsenal’s last seven games means 7/2 about him doing so again in east Lancashire is the best bet on offer.
The hosts’ great hope is usually nine-goal Danny Ings, 11/4 to score against Arsenal, but the England Under-21 hasn’t found the net since Burnley went down 3-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford in early February, taking in six games during that barren run.
Defender Ben Mee and forward George Boyd have contributed Burnley’s two goals during Ings’ dry spell, significantly in a draw away to Chelsea and when beating Manchester City at home.
Mee is 16/1 to bag his third goal in 11 games, with Boyd at 11/2 for his sixth of the campaign.
