Arsenal are general 1.44 shots to maintain their fantastic run of form by beating Fulham at the Emirates this weekend, and it would take a brave man to bet against them bagging another three points.
Fulham have never won away against Arsenal in any competition in 25 attempts, losing on 22 occasions, and the have won just one of their last nine PL games against the Gunners.
The Cottagers have also won just three out of 45 Premier League London derbies away from home and none of the last 34 since they beat Tottenham in August 2003.
No surprise then that Arsenal are long odds-on shots and considered bankers by the bookies to win this derby clash.
It really is impossible to envisage anything other than a comfortable victory for Arsene Wenger’s men, but rather than play at 1.44 how do you fancy some 1.67 instead?
That’s the price available with bet365, Boylesports, Betfred and Paddy Power about him scoring anytime during the 90 minutes and looks a cracking punt.
The Dutchman has done us plenty of favours in recent weeks thanks to his goal scoring exploits and has now scored 31 goals in 29 Premier League games in 2011 and seven in his last four appearances at the Emirates.
He has also scored in five of his seven Premier League starts against Fulham. I certainly wouldn’t want to desert a winning formula by not backing him to net, and also fancy him to score first as well at a rather large looking 4 with bet365 and Paddy Power.
The stats also suggest that Fulham will struggle to score and that throws up some plays in the correct score markets.
The have only scored 12 goals in 20 Premier League games against Arsenal and have netted only six times in 10 Premier League away games against the Gunners.
Split stakes on both looks the way to play for a potentially tasty pay out.
