It’s the final weekend of action in the Premier League, before we break for the World Cup. Some teams are looking forward to this, others will be worried how the break will affect momentum. We’ve got both sides of the spectrum here, Wolves are desperate to get to the break, evaluate their line up and work out who is going to take charge for the rest of the season.
Arsenal are going great, and won’t want this break to happen at all, as they may not return in the same form. Before we head off to Qatar, they take each other on and we have a 23/1 bet builder for the game below!
- Arsenal -1 handicap
- Bukayo Saka to score anytime
- Gabriel Jesus 2 or more shots on target
- Over 10.5 total corners
Arsenal -1 Handicap
Arsenal head into the weekend at the top of the Premier League by two points, though with Manchester City playing before them, they may be second by the time this game kicks offs.
Regardless of that, I expect them to be back at the top when their players head off to Qatar, with a win here. The Gunners have won 11 of their 13 league games, in contrast to Wolves who have won just two.
In their last six, Arsenal have won five and drawn one, whereas Wolves have won one, drawn one and lost four. Their sole win came against bottom club Nottingham Forest and their defeats included big losses to Chelsea 3-0 and Leicester 4-0.
Arsenal to bag a big win here, beating Wolves by two or more to clear the -1 handicap line, is the first pick on our bet builder.
Bukayo Saka To Score Anytime
Called up by England on Thursday, Saka has been in great form over the past few weeks, and is fancied to round that off with a goal in his last game before the break. Scorer of three in his last five Premier League games, recently, Saka has been the provider, with two assists in his last two games.
After a big start to the season, teams are now trying their best to nullify the threat posed by central striker at Arsenal Gabriel Jesus. That has given more room to those in behind and attacking from out wide, Saka is one of those.
Jesus is short in the betting for a goal, considering he’s not been as prolific recently, so Saka is the pick for us here, to get on the scoresheet and drive Arsenal to victory.
Gabriel Jesus 2 or More Shots On Target
While Jesus hasn’t been on the scoresheet as often recently, and he’s without a goal from his last five Premier League games, he does still lead the line for Arsenal, and be involved in a lot of the attacking they do.
He’s short in the betting to score a goal here, but there is value to be had on him taking shots, so we are going with Jesus to have two or more shots on target in the game.
He’s averaging almost four shots per game, and close to two on target per game, so far in the Premier League this season. Wolves are not great defensively, they’ve conceded 10 goals in their last four games, and given up many scoring opportunities.
Given the odds on offer, its Jesus to have two or more shots on target in our bet builder.
Over 10.5 Total Corners
We round off with a bet on the corners market, and here it’s the over 10.5 line that stands out, based around the stats on offer in recent games.
In the last three Arsenal Premier League games, the corner total has been 10, 13 and 13.
In the last three Wolves Premier League games, the corner total has been 13, 9, 11.
With both teams involved in games where corners are happening on a regular basis, our last leg simply follows those stats, in the hope of more of the same.
