It’s that time again. The last weekend of the Premier League,
where we can hopefully take some cash from the Bookies; the least said about
last week’s tips the better! As usual let’s start by looking for some value
with The Arsenal.
Arsenal to finish in the top four are 4/11 with Tottenham
Hotspur 2/1 shots to overhaul us on the final day. Not much value there I think
you’ll agree. So let’ delve into Arsenal’s match and pick out a few bets worth
risking our money on.
Arsenal are odds on to win at Newcastle United – (1/2 ) so
that offers little value. If you want to temper any loss Sunday then Newcastle
are a pretty long 5/1 for the win. £20 on the home win would mean a return of
£120, enough to buy a few beers to cry into. But considering Arsenal’s fine run
of form and the fact that Newcastle have nothing to play for, maybe that money
could be put to better use.
Someone who will be well rested will be Oliver Giroud who is
4/1 to open the scoring and also 4/1 to net the last goal of the game he is 6/5
to score anytime. However given Lukas Podolski’s brace in midweek against Wigan
Athletic, you would expect him to keep his place in the team.
Podolski anytime goal is 6/4 with first goal or last goal at
a tasty 5/1.
Personally I still fancy Theo Walcott to continue his recent
goalscoring form and anyone who remembers the previous fixture around Christmas
time will not forget his terrorising performance against Newcastle that day.
Theo is 9/2 to open scoring and also close the scoring. A Theo hattrick is a
very tempting 25/1.
Arsenal being Arsenal never go about these sorts of situations
easily, so Arsenal to win from behind is always a tempting bet this is 11/2.
Anyone who follows me on Twitter (@yorkshiregunner ) would know before the season started I tipped
Santi Cazorla to be Premier League top assister at 33/1 each way. Thanks to his
four assists on Tuesday, he is now one behind Juan Mata and if you fancy him to
set up a goal this Sunday, he is available at 5/2 anytime assist. If you think
he will assist the first goal this is a very tempting 15/2. Especially as he
seems to have wrestled corner-taking duties off Theo, so that’s pretty decent
I think the game will be a very open affair and clashes
between the two clubs recently have produced a few goalfests. Over 4.5 total goals
in the game pays 3/1.
I think it could be an edgy affair and Arsenal will shade a five-goal
thriller (not good for the heart) so Arsenal to win 3-2 pays 20/1.
If you fancy another 4-4 draw, then that is 200/1.
All things considered, here is The Weekly Tenner Bet:
£5 Santi Cazorla first goal assist @ 15/2
£5 Arsenal win 3-2 @ 20/1
Now for this week’s Bookie Basher Bet:
Let’s try a SIX Anytime Goalscorer Accumulator.
Theo, Michu, Robin van Persie, Daniel Sturridge, Gareth Bale
and Mata to all score anytime is 70-1.
It’s a long shot but £10 pays £717.44.
Remember to only bet with money you can afford to lose. Look
out for me on Twitter and say hello.
Born in Mining Town of Doncaster in 1973. Supported Arsenal FC thanks to my first footballing hero who was Pat Jennings whom I loved. My first Arsenal Game was an away game at Grimsby Town in January 1986 ( 4-3 win thanks to a Charlie Nicholas Hat-Trick of Free-kicks). I’ve since followed The Arsenal Home, Away & Abroad and my wife still doesn’t know how much I paid for the CL final ticket v Barca!
My All-time Fave’ Arsenal player is probably Dennis Bergkamp although I have soft spots for Tony Adams, Rocky & Steve Williams (!).
