This week’s Premier League 5:30pm offering sees Newcastle hosting Arsenal in what looks one of the matchups of the week 11 matches.

The clash will be their 177th meeting in the league and it’s a tight series with Arsenal, who are still to lose in the league this season, leading 75-64 (37 draws).

Last season we saw Arsenal take 4 points off Newcastle and the Gunners have also won 8 of their last 10 vs the Magpies ‘to nil’ – which you can back again here at 4.33.

The match betting is tight too, with Newcastle on the table at 2.80, the draw 3.25 and Arsenal 2.50.

It’s also interesting that Newcastle have struggled to scored against Arsenal in recent games. The Toon have bagged only 2 goals in the last 10 head-to-heads and not scored in 9 of their last 10 (all comps).

You can back under 0.5 Newcastle goals at 3.40.

Other betting options are Under 2.5 Goals at 1.90 – a bet that’s paid out in the last 5 head-to-heads, while the last 10 clashes have also ALL seen BTTS (no), which is on offer at 2.05.

Looking at the scoring markets, the in-form pair of Callum Wilson (Newcastle) and Eddie Nketiah (Arsenal) figure high up in the betting – with Wilson 6.00 (1st) or 2.87 (anytime) and Nketiah 7.00 (1st) or 3.25 (anytime).

In the 0-2 Arsenal win in this fixture last season, we saw an own goal from Schar and a Gunner strike from Martin Odegaard – you can back him at 9.00 (1st) or 4.00 (anytime).

Overall, it looks a tight game on paper, but with Newcastle having a poor scoring record against the Gunners, the BTTS (no) option at 2.05 looks decent value.

BEST BET: BTTS (no) @ 2.05
