Arsenal come in this match as the 16th in the table, currently with no points, after opening the season with a loss to Aston Villa on Emirates Stadium. Current team performance rate is 64% with 4 victories, 2 losses and a draw in the last 7 matches. Earlier this week the team managed to win their play-off first leg for entering Champions League against Fenerbahce with 3-0 in Turkey. This gives them almost hundred percent chances to qualify, therefore the team will be able to prioritize the Premier League games coming up ahead. After the loss to Aston Villa, the fans are looking for a bounce back, preferably with a victory. The betting odds for Arsenal are @ 2.10 and going up. Favorite player to score at anytime according to bet365 is Olivier Giroud @ 2.62 followed by Theo Walcott @ 2.87. The Draw No Bet Arsenal sits @ 1.50 and looks like the safest bet for the moment.
Considering that this is only Round 2, and that this is a London derby, we have a hard time picking a winner here. Arsenal started sloppy, but showed true colors in the Champions League match, Fulham was a bit passive against Sunderland but managed to snatch the victory.
Our recommended pick would be a safe option, but still rewarding: Draw No Bet Arsenal @ 1.50. Out of the 24 derbies between both teams, 18 have finished Over 2.5 Goals, therefore we suggest you go with the Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.80 as well.
