Everton v Arsenal Betting Tips – Arsenal are a great price!

Arsenal followed up their late win over Crystal Palace last weekend by labouring to a goalless draw in Istanbul in their Champions League qualifier first leg and now face a tough trip to Goodison Park on Saturday evening. The bookmakers appear to have overreacted to Arsenal’s draw in Turkey and at 13/8 they look decent value to make it two wins from two in the Premier League…

Everton v Arsenal (Saturday, 17:30, SS1)
Tom Powell’s Verdict: ARSENAL TO WIN @ 13/8 – BET NOW

Prior to the clash in Istanbul Arsenal were 8/5 to win at Goodison Park and although the performance at the Vodafone Arena was poor the Gunners don’t deserve to have been pushed out to 13/8 to pick up three points on Saturday evening.

This clash will see one or two players return to the fold with the German World Cup stars back in contention to start while fatigue cannot be considered a determining factor so early in the season with just 180 minutes of football having been played so far. Arsenal’s away record was superb last season with 11 wins on the road (more than any other side) while their record at Goodison Park is generally good with last season’s loss their first since way back in 2007.

As for the home side, they looked well below par as they drew 2-2 at recently promoted Leicester last Saturday afternoon and have a Ross Barkley shaped hole missing in their midfield after the youngster was ruled out for a significant period with a knee injury. At the back, 36 year-old Sylvain Distin and Jon Stones were at fault for both of Leicester’s goals and so they’ll undoubtedly have a harder time facing up to Alexis Sanchez and company.

Too much has been made of the draw in Istanbul so Arsenal to beat Everton is the value bet at 13/8.

Everton v Arsenal Team News: Arsenal can call on a handful of players who had been left out due to the World Cup commitments though there are concerns over Mikel Arteta’s fitness after he limped off against Besiktas – while Kieran Gibbs is also out injured. Ross Barkley is Everton’s one major casualty though Bryan Oviedo and Arouna Kone also remain sidelined.

Anytime Angle: Aaron Ramsey @ 5/2 – BET NOW. Tuesday night wasn’t the Welshman’s best performance but he’s two from three in competitive fixtures this season and remains the most likely to net of anyone behind the strikers.

Banker Bet: Under 2.5 Goals @ 21/20 – BET NOW. Arsenal racked up eight clean sheets on their travels last season and went under 2.5 goals on 12 occasions and with defensive personnel set to bolster their backline a low scoring match looks likely.

Premier League Betting: After the struggle against Palace last week Arsenal shortened to 11/2 from 7/1 in the Premier League winner market but remain 8/5 favourites in the outright winner without Chelsea and Man City market.

    The way I see it is that a win would leave us 3 points better off than last season. We have a bit more depth now and speedier options up front…go for it boys!

    We played in Instanbul the other night, a tough game.
    Everton stayed at home, and, have home advantage Saturday.
    They beat us easily in the corresponding fixture last Season.
    WE have a return UCL game on Wednesday.
    Everton are the bookmakers favourites for Saturday.
    Simples.
    We REALLY need to bring our A game to Goodison at the week-end.

    We have a CDM issue at the moment, Why cant Wenger get Rabiot for the future and for the time being get Alonso from Madrid.

      PSG want 24mil for Rabiot there’s no way we will pay that for a 19 year old on the last year of his contract!

        Well, Schalke wanted 37 mil for 19 yrs old Draxler. The fool is not the one asking but the one paying. I wouldn’t think though Rabiot will be sold for that amount. If anything, young players having these huge prices can’t cope with the pressure and end up having bad season(s).

    Got a bad feeling about this game think Everton will do exactly the same to us as they did last season hope i am wrong but the players do not look anywhere near ready for a game like this even with Germans back they will need 5 or 6 games to get up to speed!!

        A LOSS muffdiver NEVER helps a team, and, it will NOT nudge Wenger to do anything.
        He HAS his targets/ideas of who he wants, and where, and THAT is all he will be concerned about.
        A CB is his first priority to replace TV, after that who knows, but short term injuries will NOT change his focus.

    I will be worried if Liverpool get Balotelli; sure, he is a loose cannon but he is the only very talented striker left at a reasonable price and with his addition I think they have actually managed to replace Suarez with enough other players to stay at the same level as last season.

    They already improved their defence (their weakest area) with two RBs, Lovren, and DMF. They added two capable wingers in Lallana and Markovic and now they will have replaced Suarez with Lambert and Balotelli (both completely different to Sturridge and Sterling so they have plenty of options). There is a doubt on whether they will all gel with so many additions vying for the first team but if they do that will put them up with us three. I also rate Brendan Rodgers as a tactical manager and with so many more options he has a chance to excel.

    I still think top four is secure because the only other team is Man United and I don’t think they have done enough, they don’t have the fear factor anymore.

    Transfers are so crazy. First PSG want £5.5M for Rabiot, then they say £24M. Real Madrid wanted £27M for Khedira, then changed it to £8M. Insane.

    13/8? If that’s accurate then that’s real value for a team as good as Arsenal. Tempting stuff!!
    As far as the game goes, I’d take an away draw at Goodison anytime.

    We should sing “We all want a defensive midfielder” to the sound of Yellow Submarine on Saturday to wake Wenger up.

        luckily, the majority of fans wouldn’t consider throwing a tantrum at an important game and would be more interested in supporting the actual team… Crazy yeah?

    One or two weeks ago this place was full of delusional fans thinking we’ve already won the league. This week this place is whiner’s den. It’s like one group of gimps come out while the other hides, going by the results of the week. lol

    “It is a big test [for Chambers against Romelu Lukaku] but it was also a test against Demba Ba [against Besiktas].” So I think mert might be good for the bench in this match

    All of a sudden guys think Mert is bench material as Chambers runs the show.This is how young English players never live to fulfill their potential.Too much hype and the lad will start swimming in the glory and soon enough another flop on the cards.If he could’nt start for Everton,why start for Arsenal?
