Gunners vs Latics: The Odds

Arsenal are a top priced 1.29 to beat Wigan at the Emirates and everything suggest that they are worthy odds-on shots to do so.

The Gunners have an outstanding record against the Latics, and have won all nine matches at home to them in all competitions – keeping a clean sheet in each of the last six.

They have also have scored 19 goals in their last six league meetings ( an average of 3.16 per game) and won 10 of their 13 PL meetings Roberto Martinez’ men (D2 L1).

Throw into the mix the fact that the visitors are the only Premier League side to have played at least five times at the Emirates but never taken a point (W0 D0 L6) and you can see why they are only a top priced 1.29 with Betfred and Paddy Power to win this.

OK, Wigan have been playing better lately, and have lost only one of their last four league games on the road.

They also come into the match on the back of a shock 1-0 win over Man United, but the league leaders were way off form that day and an on-song Arsenal should be able to do the business.

Given the aforementioned goal scoring statistics in games between these two, over 2.5 goals looks a solid bet.

You can get 1.53 with Boylesports and Paddy Power about that outcome, and that price looks better value than backing Arsenal in the outright.

Robin van Persie, who has scored or assisted 59 goals in his last 50 PL appearances, is sure to cause the Wigan defence a whole host of problems and has to be worth a punt a a top priced 3.25 with bet365 to net the opener.

I fancy arsenal to win 3-0 3-0 and that scoreline is an 8 shot with bet365.
