Unlike the Arsenal v Newcastle game where the experts and analysts overwhelmingly went with an Arsenal win the same cannot be said about the Everton v Arsenal match where opinions are certainly mixed.
Most of these predictions have been backed up with their respective opinions or analysis so, for the most part, it is not just guesswork, though they remain opinions only.
Evening Standard – Arsenal 2-1
BBC (Mark Lawrenson) – Everton 2-1
Bwin Blog – Arsenal to win and BTTS
SkySports (Paul Merson) – Arsenal 3-1
Goonersguide – Arsenal 2-1
Betting Betfair – Arsenal to win to nil
90min Everton – 2-1
Betvictor (Michael Owen) – Everton win or draw
Sports Mole – 1-1 Draw
The Express – 1-1 Draw
That breaks down to basically five of the ten predicting an Arsenal win, two for an Everton win, two for a draw and one for either an Everton win or draw.
That makes the baseline figures 50% Arsenal to win and 50% predicting we will drop points.
This was always going to be a tricky game now that the Toffees are in form and our away form is questionable and that is clearly reflected by the opinions of the experts and analysts.
