After spending most of the second-half of the season in freefall, Hull City have finally woken up to the dangers of relegation in recent weeks.
Steve Bruce’s side have won back to back games against Crystal Palace and Liverpool to arrest their slide down the table, but a gruesome fixture list still awaits the Tigers.
Hull host Arsenal next, and also face Spurs and Manchester City in their final four matches, giving fans every reason to fear the drop.
The Gunners are 73/100 favourites to win the match, with the hosts priced at 4/1 and the draw 27/10.
Despite Hull’s mini-resurgence, Arsenal’s odds of victory look generous, and savvy punters will combine an away win with both teams to score at 3/1.
New bwin customers can claim a £30 free bet which could yield a £90 profit if used to back the Gunners to win with goals at both ends and Arsene Wenger’s men come through.
Arsenal’s Premier League record against Hull is excellent, with five wins in their past six against the Tigers, including victories in all three visits to the KC Stadium.
Wenger’s team have also won their past six away games in all competitions, and eight of their past nine anywhere in the Premier League.
However, this estimable run has not been based on a sturdy defence, with the Gunners conceding in eight of their past ten matches on the road.
Arsenal’s attack has seen them through, often by a slim margin, with the Gunners’ pinching 2-1 victories in three of their past four away games.
That scoreline is available at 29/4 against Hull, a worthy bet for the more adventurous punter, while those hankering for something safer should look no further than Olivier Giroud.
The Frenchman has become a real menace on the road of late, bagging six goals in his last seven away trips, and is priced at 11/10 to ripple to net again.
