Saturday’s only Premier League game sees Arsenal, hoping to tighten their grip on third place, host a Norwich City side who are safe in the knowledge that their top-flight status is assured for next season.
The Gunners are without a win in their last three outings as they stutter towards the line in the face of intense pressure from north London rivals Tottenham and a buoyant Newcastle.
However, they arguably have the more favourable remaining fixtures, with the game against the Canaries followed by a trip to a West Brom side who sit safely in mid-table and could lack focus in Roy Hodgson’s final game in charge before taking up the England manager’s job full-time.
But for now, the Gunners will not be looking past beating Norwich, who have lost their last three games but have rightly won plenty of plaudits for a remarkable season under the shrewd guidance of Paul Lambert following promotion from the Championship.
A big part of their success has been club captain Grant Holt, who has notched up an impressive 13 league goals in his debut Premier League season.
You can get odds of 8/1 for Holt to shock Arsenal by grabbing the first goal of the game – but it is the opposing captain who has been grabbing all of the headlines this season.
Though steering his team into the Champions League will be his main focus, Robin van Persie will be keen to secure the Premier League’s Golden Boot, especially with Wayne Rooney hot on his heels.
The Dutch star is 1/2 to score at any time, but you might see more value in the 7/2 offered for him to grab his third hat-trick of the campaign against a Canaries side who have shipped 11 goals in the three games since their stunning 2-1 win over Spurs at White Hart Lane.
Punters who use their free £25 bet for registering with bwin on this selection will see a return of £87.50 if Van Persie grabs another yet another treble at the Emirates.
That would take his season’s total to 31 league goals, which would equal the tally set by Alan Shearer in 1996 and repeated by Cristiano Ronaldo in 2008 in a 38-game campaign.
But if you fancy taking a safer route, Van Persie is priced at 5/2 to score first (and the same to score last), while also being pegged at 8/5 to score at least a brace.
Recommended bet: Robin van Persie to score first @ 5/2
Outside punt: Robin van Persie to score at least three goals @ 7/2
