Arsenal v Sunderland, Preview & Prediction

Arsenal v Sunderland – click here to bet

Arsenal are currently in 5th on the table and still have an outside chance of finishing in the top 4 and getting into next season’s Champions League.  They have won 5 of their last 6 EPL games and are coming off successive away victories over Stoke and Southampton.  Their recent home form is also solid and they have taken 13 points from the last 15 they have played for, most recently beating Manchester United by 2-0.  Arsenal haven’t conceded a goal in their last 3 home matches.

Sunderland are bottom of the log and doomed to Championship football next season.  They lost 2-0 at home to Swansea in their last start but prior to that they did beat fellow relegation candidates Hull 2-0 away from home.  That away win broke a run of 4 successive losses on the road as well as 4 successive away games without a goal.

 

Betting

Arsenal 1/8

Draw 9/1

Sunderland 22/1

 

Suggested bet:  Total goals – aggregated, 4 to 5 goals at 31/20.

Arsenal are massive favourites for this match and it is hard to look past them getting a comfortable victory.  Finding a betting angle is not so easy though and I have settled on 4 to 5 goals in total.
