Arsenal fans have every right to be excited about the coming season after seeing the arrival of the goal machine, Alexandre Lacazette, and the best left back in the Bundesliga, Sead Kolasinac. We are expected to see at least one more top class arrival before the window shuts, and it looks like Arsene Wenger is keeping his promise of retaining Alexis and Ozil, so we should have a very good chance of challenging for the League title.
But the bookies don’t appear to have any faith in our superstars and you can still get an amazing price of 12/1 on the Gunners to win the League, the same price as Liverpool but behind Chelsea, Man City, Man United and Tottenham (who are 10/1). This must definitely be worth a punt, especially as all of our rivals in the betting will have the distraction of the Champions League and the subsequent fatigue that goes with playing top European teams in midweek games.
There is a full range of Arsenal bets that I think I worth a little punt. Considering we have also won the FA Cup in 3 of the last 4 years, the price of 13/8 on Arsenal to win ANY trophy is also very appealing, and considering that we are not in the Champions League next season then we can concentrate more fully on the two big domestic trophies, and we are a very attractive 80/1 to do the Premier League and FA Cup double. Don’t you think that is an extremely good bet? Wenger has done it before….
Personally I think winning the League will be Wenger’s priority, and with our new players and Le Prof’s experience I am very hopeful, but what about betting on them to win that plus one other trophy?
I have already told you that you can get 80/1 on the League and FA Cup double, but you can get the same price for the League and League Cup or the League and Europa League double as well. If you don’t think Arsenal can win the League again under Wenger, then what about the FA Cup and Europa League double? That is priced at 50/1. Or you can go mad and do the League, FA Cup and Europa League treble at 375/1. Now that would make for a very good season!
Onwards and Upwards!
