A lot of teams are playing midweek this week and one of those matches will see Arsenal play West Brom in front of the Gunner’s home crowd. This is a game which Arsenal will want to win easily since it has not been easy sailing for Wenger and his men in the past week and a top 4 spot is not guaranteed for them. West Brom on the other hand are free to play however they feel fit since their season is all but over.
Arsenal were stunned last week as Crystal Palace managed to secure a point from them. This was a horrific result for the Gunners and it saw them fall behind Manchester City in the standings. This week they will want to return to third place but it will not be an easy win for them since Tony Pulis, the West Brom manager, knows how to grind out point. This game will be a tough game for that reason since they will be facing a team who will have men behind the ball and it will be up to the likes of Ozil to break them down.
I think Arsenal will be able to get a win here but it will not be a big win or an entertaining win. A 1-0 or a 2-0 win for Arsenal is what I am prediction and that is why my betting prediction for this game is going to be under 2.5 goals. We are getting a pretty good price on this and it seems safe so a medium wager on this feels good. Betting on the outright result is another option but the price we are getting is very short and a 0-0 or 1-1 draw could happen. I don’t see much value in this bet but if you are determined to bet on the result betting on the Gunners to win is the only option.
