Jesus is 5.00 to score the first goal, or 2.25 anytime.Team news will be key for Palace, but Benteke has scored in 2 the last 3 head-to-heads and is on offer at 11.00 (1st) or 4.33 (anytime), or Zaha, who is sure to start, is 9.00 (1st) or 3.75 (anytime).The match betting ahead of the game sees Palace at 4.33, the Draw 3.80 and Arsenal on offer at 1.75.However, both sets of fans will remember this repeat fixture last season ended in a comfortable 3-0 home win to Palace – you can back this score again at 51.00!In fact, Palace took 4 points off Arsenal last season with a draw away to them. And the Eagles are also unbeaten in 7 of their last 8 vs Arsenal and has scored in 10 of their last 11 vs the Gunners. You can back Arsenal to NOT keep a Clean Sheet at 1.50.It is, however, worth pointing out Arsenal have lost just 1 of their last 13 away league games over the Eagles.It’s also generally a match-up that produces goals – 12 of the last 16 meetings went OVER 2.5 GOALS, so this is an option at 1.90, while 7 of the last 10 saw 4+ goals scored – this is on offer at 3.40.We’ve also had 5 draws in the last 8 meetings (63%), so the 3.80 on another stalemate looks decent value based on that percentage. Three of the last 8 league meetings ended 2-2, so this might be another option at 19.00.Both teams have scored in 80% of the last 10 too – with this in mind the 1.80 on both Palace and Arsenal finding the back of the net is sure to attract interest too and is how we are going to play this Premier League curtain raiser.BEST BET: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @ 1.80
