Arsenal host Wolves at the Emirates on Sunday, kicking off at 4:30pm local time. Arsenal occupy 5th place at the moment, just one point behind their rivals in North London which is starting to look like a direct competition for top four. Wolves have moved down to 11th a losing three games on the bounce.

Home Team: Arsenal

arsenal betting on footballArsenal’s long winning run has come to a halt in recent games, drawing at Crystal Palace, and then at home to Liverpool. Their undefeated record continues though, having not lost a match since August. Arsenal will have taken some pride from their home draw to Liverpool, because many fans had given them flack about their winning run – suggesting that they had not come up against a ‘proper team’. However, Arsenal were perhaps the better side in that encounter, and may feel hard done by for not getting the win. There is optimism around the club once again, and they’ll hope that can get back to winning ways in the league against a dangerous Wolves side.

Away Team: Wolves

wolves betting on footballWolves had picked up 15 points from a possible 24 in an incredible start to the season, including a home draw against champions Manchester City. However, three defeats on the bounce to Watford, Brighton and Tottenham have taken them from 6th to 11th in the league table. They are in danger of losing four consecutive matches in a row, which would have been unthinkable just one month ago. Raul Jimenez is the top scorer for Wolves, but he hasn’t scored a goal from open play since the middle of September. Hopefully, by converting a penalty against Tottenham, he will be able to gain much needed confidence to go on another goal scoring run.

Head to Head

Arsenal have won almost twice as much in this fixture than Wolves have, with 57 wins to 29. The fixture doesn’t have good reading for Wolves fans in recent times though, as Arsenal have won 16 of the last 19 meetings which date back to the 1980’s. In the last decade, Arsenal have won 5 out of the 6 in comfortable fashion, but the match they didn’t win was in fact the last time Wolves played at the Emirates. It was 1-1 on that day, back in 2011, with Stephen Fletcher equalising for the visitors after Gervinho had put the hosts in the lead. Wolves will be looking for their first win away in this fixture since 1979.

Predictions and Betting Tips

Arsenal are at 8/13 to get back to winning ways, with Wolves at 17/4 to get an unlikely win. For the two teams to cancel each other out, it is priced at a reasonable 3/1. Arsenal have looked resolute at home since their opening day defeat to Manchester City, so I would have to opt for them to get a win here, so I’d back a score line of 2-1 at 15/2. To boost earnings from that score line, bet on Alexandre Lacazette on a Scorecast which takes it to 20/1. Mesut Ozil has improved his performances of late, particularly at home, and I would back him to score at any time in the 90 minutes at 9/4.

Choosing the right half time/full time result can always lead to big earnings, so for the match to be drawing at half time, for Arsenal to win the match by full time, that is priced at 7/2. Finally, if you fancy Wolves will cause some damage in this match, then it may be best to back them on getting some goals, instead of a result. For example, betting on them to score two goals in this match is at 9/4, and perhaps more likely than them winning or even drawing.
