Arsenal have had an upturn in fortunes of late, climbing the table to sit level on points with champions Chelsea in joint-fourth place, and are now well in contention for the league title.
There are various Premier League betting offers and markets available, and Arsenal are worth looking at for value. To win the English top division we can be found at a huge 40/1 (41.0), and a less-attractive 25/1 (26.0) to top the table at Christmas.
I’m not one of those deluded fans who will now claim we will win the Premier League, but I cannot completely rule it out on current form either.
Since our dreadful defeat to Liverpool, we have turned a corner and pulled together a string of six wins from seven outings, with our draw away to Chelsea posing as a strong result also.
We now sit only six points behind the Manchester clubs who are currently tied at the top, and I firmly expect both sides to have a blip in the near future, and United are yet to encounter any of the top sides as of yet.
Arsenal also have the added bonus of having home fixtures against Tottenham, Manchester United and Liverpool before Christmas if you were looking at that market, with Manchester City away being the only big six side we have to travel to.
If we were to continue our run up until the new year we would no doubt put a dent in the lead the top two currently hold over us, and I would be tempted by the odds on offer to be top come Christmas Day, and if (that’s a big if) we manage to get through the season without our usual build up of injured stars at a crucial point in the campaign, then we may even be close to the top come July.
Could we be the value pick to land our first title in 14 years? Will the Manchester clubs come unstuck in the coming months?
