Football, the most loved sport internationally, is a game of skill and tactics. Its players are treated as Gods, and the passion of its followers is unparalleled (unformidable is not the right word to use here if we look at its meaning). It is also a game of chance where often fortunes can turn in seconds. That is the beauty of it all and the reason that people around the world watch it religiously.
Betting and football are like two peas in a pod. As a game that can be unpredictable, yet favourable for many, it has always been a bettor’s delight. There are usually two types of individuals who bet on football – those that support their own team and others who just love football with no affiliation.
The latter’s bets might differ from game to game. Having a well-defined football betting strategy is not only essential but can make all the difference in the end. Arsenal is one of the top teams to play in the league and with their exceptional passing game, the international stars, and the legacy of the club, it is considered the safest bet, one that should be part of your play and here are the reasons why;
Arsenal team members and management were really delighted when the German player renewed his contract with the club and agreed to continue playing with them till 2021, earlier this year. Ozil has been an indispensable member of the team ever since he came on board in 2013 and has helped the Gunners win Emirates FA Cup titles multiple times, with 36 goals and 61 assists. However, just as lady luck changes hands, his last few games haven’t been up to the mark, but that is not to say Ozil won’t return with vigour to take his team to the next level.
At present, all hands are off when it comes to Emery, the newly appointed Head Coach of Arsenal. His first two games have resulted in a loss, and it just might be a case of finding a stand in the team at this point in time. But changes are in place, and unlike his predecessor, Emery isn’t afraid to make bold moves. In the recent game against Chelsea, he took the bold step of replacing Ozil mid-game. His move was appreciated by the fans, and he later clarified that the switch was strategy-based and that he is happy with Ozil, but will continue to push him more for better results. He encouraged Ozil to be more influential in Arsenal’s games..
The power to hit back and favourable odds
There’s no denying that the legacy of Arsenal is reason enough to bet on it. It has been through lots of ups and downs very much like any other club, but the support of their fans and the team’s continued excellent play has always been appreciated. They have an inherent persistence to come back, and many believe that after the last two games they must introspect about the missed chances but also focus on the positives. As a leading football team, many a time betting odds are in support of Arsenal. However, each game is different, and the probabilities change. It is best to follow the statistics carefully. A team might lose a game, but you can still come out victorious having placed a bet on a player who scored a goal or even based on the score at half-time. With Arsenal and its popularity, bookmakers at times have money back or bet offers that can sweeten the deal.
Betting on football is no less than an art. Yes, the odds often favour one team, but all it takes is one slip, one tackle, or a spectacular dribble in the last minute; and from being down and out you end up scoring huge profits.
