The odds on Arsenal beating Blackburn on Saturday are the shortest being offered by bwin on any Premier League team this weekend.
Arsene Wenger’s men are priced at 1/5 to overcome Rovers and recent meetings between the sides certainly point to a resounding home win.
Blackburn, who can be backed at 10/1, have shipped 18 goals in their four trips to the Emirates and have not recorded an away win over Arsenal since a 2-1 victory at Highbury in October 2002.
In addition, they have picked up just two points from their last six games and have conceded more goals on the road than any other team this season.
With that in mind, betting on Arsenal to win handsomely is sure to prove popular, with scorelines such as 3-0 (25/4) and 4-0 (17/2) particularly catching the eye.
But despite the Gunners being the only team with an unbeaten record in the Premier League in 2011, their confidence must be fragile after some shattering recent cup results.
A Carling Cup final defeat to Birmingham was followed by exits from the FA Cup and the Champions League, so the pressure is now on as they look to keep their title bid alive.
Indeed, they could find themselves eight points behind leaders Manchester United by the time they kick off against Rovers.
Blackburn are sure to sit deep and attempt to frustrate Arsenal and this strategy could be effective if the hosts’ passing machine is not firing on all cylinders.
The Gunners may have to grind out a result, possibly with a couple of second-half strikes, so the 11/2 being offered by bwin on a 2-0 home victory looks inviting.
Alternatively, football betting experts may look to put their money on under 2.5 goals being scored in the match, which is priced at 31/20.
Arsenal will welcome back skipper Cesc Fabregas, Theo Walcott and Alex Song from injury, while Robin van Persie has recovered from a knock sustained on international duty with Holland.
This may add some intrigue to the goalscorer markets, with Van Persie looking a particularly tempting proposition.
The Dutchman has scored 16 goals in 16 games for club and country since the turn of the year and can be backed at 5/2 to open the scoring against Blackburn.
