Chelsea v Arsenal betting preview
Chelsea take on Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in the stand-out match of this week's Premier League games.
Chelsea's home record under Jose Mourinho is well documented having never lost a match under the guidance of their Portuguese manager. It's probably why they are quoted at 10/11 to win the game with Arsenal at a fairly enticing 10/3. If you think this match has draw written all over it, 5/2 is the price being quoted here.
We don't see an awful lot of goals in this game and the correct score market has a couple of decent looking options. If you fancy Arsenal to secure the draw, you can get 10/1 for a no score draw or a 1-1 draw can be got for 13/2. However, if you are convinced Mourinho will continue his winning sequence over Arsene Wenger (pic above), who will be in charge for his 1000th match as Arsenal manager, a 1-1 home win is available for 13/2.
The ever popular first goalscorer market throws up some interesting odds. Samuel Eto'o (pic below) is at 5/1 followed by Fernando Torres at 11/2.
Frank Lampard also looks a decent bet at 9/1.
If you think Arsenal will race into the lead, Olivier Giroud is available at 7/1 with his German team mate Lukas Podolski coming in at 10/1.
The half-time, full-time prediction market is hugely popular too and we think the half-time draw with Chelsea winning at full-time at odds of 7/2 is the best bet here. The Gunners fans might be enticed with Chelsea at half-time but with Arsenal coming back for the draw at full-time at odds of 14/1.
