West Ham v Arsenal – Premier League Betting Guide: Saturday 12th Jan 2019

West Ham United v Arsenal 12:30

All all-London Derby to kick the Premier League action off this weekend as Arsenal travel across town to face West Ham.

It’s a clash that ended 0-0 last season, but the sides have already met this term – with Arsenal winning that one 3-1 at home.

The match betting suggests an away with for Arsenal with the Gunners on offer at 2.00, with the Draw 3.60 and West Ham 3.50. With the Gunners unbeaten in their last 10 away games over the Hammers then it’s easy to see why the layers are taking no chances on the visitors.

West Ham have also struggled in recent years to even score against their London neighbours, with just 2 goals in their five when facing them. In contrast, the Gunners have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 when playing West Ham.

Other options to note are that both teams scored in 8 of the last 11 clashes, so the 1.50 on this happening again might appeal, but the safer call here looks to be OVER 2.5 GOALS at 1.57. Why? Well, a massive 7 of the last 8 repeat fixtures saw 3+ goals scored, while 6 of the last 8 clashes in general have also gone this way.

Yes, the Hammers have had a habit of not scoring in this fixture but that is outweighed with Arsenal often scoring at least two when facing West Ham. Add in that when the teams played earlier this season we saw four goals netted then this gives us further confidence.

OVER 2.5 GOALS @ 1.57
