Swansea v Arsenal – Premier League Betting Guide: 30th Jan 2018

A big Premier League game this Tuesday night, but for different reasons. Swansea, who are currently at the foot of the table, are fighting for their top-flight survival, while Arsenal sit in sixth and are in desperate need of points if they are going to finish in the top four.

The sides met earlier this season and with that game ending Arsenal 2-1 Swansea then the Gunners head into the match with the slight upper hand, but with home advantage then Swansea will have some hope.

The match betting sees Arsenal as the clear 1.50 favourites, with the draw 4.50 and Swansea 7.50.

However, it’s worth pointing out that this fixture last season resulted in a comfortable 4-0 away win for Arsenal – that score can be backed again at 21.00.

Swansea fans will also know that they’ve failed to score in the last two repeat fixtures, while, in contrast, Arsenal have found the net in all of their last 5 vs the Swans.

With just one draw in the last 18 head-to-heads then if the stats are to be backed-up then you might want to steer clear of the stalemate.

Looking at the potential scorers then Swansea’s Tammy Abraham (4) and Jordan Ayew (4) head the way this season for the home side, while Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette, with 9 league goals, is their main man this season.

Abraham is 10.00 to score the game’s first goal, or 3.75 anytime, while Ayew is 12.00 (1st) or 4.50 anytime. Arsenal’s Lacazette heads the betting in both markets though at 4.50 (1st ) or 1.95 anytime.

Both teams have scored in 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads so at 1.90 this is certainly an option, but the call here is for OVER 2.5 GOALS at 1.75.

The last 5 head-to-heads all saw 3+ goals, while so have 4 of the last 5 repeat fixtures.

Add in that 5 of Arsenal’s last 6 games (all comps) have also produced OVER 2.5 GOALS, then this gives us further confidence to side with this option.

Best Bet: OVER 2.5 GOALS @1.75
