Arsenal -1.0 (-115) O/U 3.0
Arsenal (WLWWW) and West Ham United (WLLDL) will meet on Saturday, March 7th for an English Premier League match at Emirates Stadium. The match will be played at 10:00 AM eastern time.
Arsenal is coming off a 2-0 victory over Portsmouth in their last match. That game was featured in the English FA Cup on March 2nd. Arsenal has been quite busy with the English Premier League, UEFA Europa League, and English FA Cup action recently. In the win over Portsmouth, Sokratis Papastathopoulos scored in added time in the first half to get Arsenal on the board. In the second half, Edward Nketiah scored in the 51st minute to extend the lead to two goals, which was too much for Portsmouth to come back. Arsenal has won four of their last five matches overall, including two English Premier League victories over Everton and Newcastle United.
West Ham United is coming off a 3-1 victory over Southampton in front of their home supporters in their last match on February 29th. West Ham's win was much needed, as they have lost three of their last five matches overall, all being English Premier League contests. In the win over Southampton, Jarrod Bowen opened the scoring in the 15th minute for West Ham. After conceding a goal to Southampton, West Ham found the back of the net again in the first half with a goal by Sebastian Haller in the 40th minute. Michail Antonio added another tally in the 54th minute to seal the win for West Ham, as they are trying to make it out alive from this season and stay away from relegation.
Arsenal won the last match between these two teams, 3-1 on December 9th, 2019 in front of the West Ham United supporters. West Ham United has only won one of the last five matches played against Arsenal. Arsenal has won the last three matches against West Ham at home as well. Arsenal is currently 10th in the English Premier League table, while West Ham United is 16th.
Arsenal has played well against West Ham United at home, and I see more of the same in this match. Only laying one goal at -115 odds provides enough value for me to take Arsenal in this one.
