Arsenal Betting Preview
Arsenal currently sits in 1st place in the standings having picked up 51 points so far this season. Arsenal has found a ton of success this season, but they have have struggled as of late. Two games ago against Everton they were defeated 1-0 and in the last game against Brentford they played to a 1-1 draw. Leandro Trossard scored in the 66th minute, to take the lead, but they gave up a goal in the 74th minute and that led to only one point picked up. Gabriel Jesus is getting closer to returning to the pitch from a knee injury but he’s still a couple of weeks away. Emile Smith Rowe and Reiss Nelson are both dealing with injuries and also won’t be able to go in this game.

On the other side of this matchup is Manchester City who sits in second place in the standings having picked up 48 points so far this season.

John Stones is still dealing with a hamstring injury and he’s not going to be able to go in this game. Make sure to check out our Champions League picks for Wednesday.
Shane’s Free Pick
This is the biggest game for both teams so far this season, and I really don’t have a strong play on the side. I do expect there will be strong defense by both teams though, and that is going to lead to this game being lower scoring. Look for a 1-0 or 1-1 type of game and this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under.
