Arsenal v Chelsea – Premier League Betting Guide: Saturday 19th Jan 2019

Saturday 19th January 2019
Arsenal v Chelsea 17:30

 

It’s ‘week 23’ in the Premier League and we’ve another jam-packed set of fixtures with all 20 sides in action over Saturday and Sunday, but the possible highlight is the Arsenal v Chelsea clash at 5:30pm.

These powerhouse London clubs played out a 3-2 thriller in favour of Chelsea earlier this season and with last year’s repeat fixture ended Arsenal 2-2 Chelsea then this clash has a habit of throwing up goals at the moment.

The match betting it tight with Chelsea the slight favourites at 2.30, with Arsenal 2.90 and the draw 3.50.

In fact, with the Blues having lost just one of their last 14 league games against Arsenal then even the 1.42 on offer on Chelsea/Draw in the ‘Double Chance’ market looks fair value.

Other markets to note are the ‘both teams to score’ option as this has paid out in 5 of the last 6 clashes but at 1.53 the bookies are taking no chances here.

6 of the last 9 head-to-heads went OVER 2.5 GOALS, including 3 of the last 4 – this is on offer at 1.66.

It’s also been a bit of a fiery affair with 3 RED CARDS in the last 7 clashes (all Chelsea) so this is another factor to note, but with 4 draws in the last 6 meetings then the stalemate at 3.50 might be the way to play this.

In these tight meetings one way to take the draw bet a bit further is in the half-time/full-time market and side with Arsenal/Draw and Chelsea/Draw, both at 15.00 – we’d just need one of the teams to be leading at half-time to be in with a shout.

BEST BET: DRAW
