Goals can be counted on when Arsenal and Liverpool lock horns, with the net bulging at an average of four times per 90 minutes across the previous six face offs between the two adversaries.
With this in mind, there should be plenty of profit-turning potential when backing another high-scoring affair when the duo meet at the Emirates this evening.
It’s a game Arsenal are a too short 3/4 to win, next to the 4/1 siding with the visitors and 11/4 saying the contest ends all square, but these match-betting wagers are worth swerving in favour of these more-likely-to-land punts.
Arsenal win and both teams to score @ 13/5
There hasn’t been a goalless draw between the two since 1999 and just four of the last 23 meetings have resulted in one side failing to bag.
The case favouring one half of the wager is as cut and dried as they come.
Arsenal’s chances of winning aren’t quite so certain, but they’ve lost just two of 16 Premier League matches against the Reds and prevailed in their last three at home.
Over 0.5 goals between 30:01 and 45 minutes @ 17/10
Last season’s dust ups saw a staggering five goals scored in this bracket, three of which came in Arsenal’s 4-1 victory at the Emirates.
These strikes contribute to a run that would’ve seen this bet land in eight of the last nine league games at the Emirates in which the onion bag has been rippled.
Arsenal HT/FT @ 33/20
The Gunners’ price has been highlighted as it’s the shortest, but the real bet here is to back the result at half time being intact when the contest concludes.
Whether one side has been in the ascendency or parity has prevailed when the interval was signalled, the scoreboard was leaning the same way after 90 minutes in six of the previous seven meetings.
So whether you fancy Arsenal, Liverpool or the draw here, back the result being the same at half-time, as well as full time for a boosted profit.
Liverpool HT/FT weighs in at 29/4, while the draw HT/FT is a 9/2 shot.
