With the Premier League pressure all but off Arsene Wenger’s young and talented Arsenal team, it might be wise to back them to take out their frustrations on Stoke, with odds of 3/5 on an away victory with bwin.
The Gunners visit the Britannia Stadium on Sunday knowing that it will take a minor miracle for them to win the Premier League.
Meanwhile, there is also little chance of Manchester City beating them to third spot unless a major collapse occurs in the final three matches of the campaign.
As such, the north London club could be free to relax and enjoy the remainder of the season, playing the expressive style of football they have been lauded for in recent years.
If Wenger’s men go out and hammer Stoke 4-1, punters who place a successful £10 bet would be due a massive £260 in return, thanks to bwin’s odds of 25/1.
Those who believe the Gunners can score four and keep a clean sheet would see a payout of £210 on a stake of £10 at 20/1 on a 4-0 win.
With Belgian defender Thomas Vermaelen set to return to the visiting side after a long spell out with an Achilles injury, Arsenal are likely to be solid at the back.
Up front, Robin Van Persie’s 15 league goals this season have helped keep his side in contention for the title until the last few games of the campaign.
A successful £10 bet on the Dutchman to score first would return £50 at odds of 4/1 with bwin.com.
Meanwhile, Stoke’s main goal threat is likely to come from Kenwyne Jones, who has bagged 11 goals this season, with eight of those coming in the Premier League.
Priced at 7/1 to break the deadlock with bwin, the big striker could be a good bet, with a £10 stake returning £80 if he notches first.
Spectators will no doubt be looking to see if Aaron Ramsey takes to the field – the Welshman suffered a broken leg after a rash challenge by Stoke’s Ryan Shawcross 14 months ago.
Ramsey is priced at 12/1 to get the game off and running with a goal, while his nemesis Shawcross has odds of 22/1 to notch first.
A successful £10 bet on Aaron Ramsey to score at any point would return £40 at bwin’s odds of 3/1.
