What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Stoke

Arsenal’s Premier League form continues to be up and down, but the Gunners should be too good for Stoke if on their best behaviour.

Arsene Wenger’s side went into the international break in fine spirits following a 3-0 beating of Watford in between two Europa League triumphs over AC Milan.

The Potters are struggling in the relegation zone, so 9/10 for the hosts to prevail by more than one goal is the first of our Arsenal vs Stoke betting predictions.

A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds

Wenger has become a master at holding firm under pressure in recent years and Arsenal once again rallied from a poor run of results to give their under-fire boss a boost.

The Gunners did get the rub of the green when beating Milan 3-1 in London in the second leg of their Europa League tie, benefiting from a controversial penalty decision and a bad piece of goalkeeping.

Nevertheless, securing a quarter-final clash with CSKA Moscow kept their season alive, with hopes of a top-four finish in the Premier League all-but over.

There had previously been empty seats all around the Emirates Stadium for a 3-0 victory over Watford, but three straight wins should have got most Arsenal fans back on side.

Looking at the Arsenal vs Stoke odds, the Gunners will be keen to keep that fresh feelgood factor going, so 33/20 for a home win and over 3.5 goals in the game takes the eye.

A Look At Stoke City’s Betting Odds

Stoke are second from bottom after back-to-back home defeats against Manchester City and Everton made it seven games without a win.

Charlie Adam’s 30th-minute dismissal did his side no favours in a 2-1 loss to the Toffees, with City having looked in fair form up to that point.

Paul Lambert commented: “We started well, we looked really good. It was a massive blow. Charlie’s as disappointed as anyone but you can’t change it.”

The Potters have tasted defeat on all nine previous visits to Emirates Stadium since securing promotion to the Premier League and look set for another tough trip.

We’re finishing off our Arsenal vs Stoke betting tips by taking 9/1 for a repeat of last season’s 3-1 scoreline in favour of the Gunners.
