I have done a quick bit of research on what the analysts and pundits are predicting for the Monday night game against Newcastle and the overwhelming view is that we will win and for the most part, fairly comfortably.
Of course, these are just opinions but in most cases, they have backed up their predictions with analysis and/or statistics, so in all fairness, they have put the effort in.
But regardless of what any of us think about some of these predictions, it is interesting to see sort of consensus is out there.
That is ten predictions and the breakdown of opinions is that four go with a 3-1 win, three go with a 2-0 win, one each for 2-1 and 3-0 and of course, the Newcastle press website bottles it and goes for under 10 corners.
What I noticed is that 70% predict we will win by exactly two goals which may be an interesting little bet to consider.
90% predict an Arsenal win by a specific score and even in the Chronicle article, they concede that we will win but do not predict a score and make the under 10 corners their prediction, which means, it is actually 100% picking an outright win.
Cannot say I disagree.
