Match Betting (1x2)

Leicester City won the Premier League title as recently as 2016 and their flying start to the season means that punters are starting to back the Foxes at big prices ahead of a possible challenge for this season’s crown.

It still might seem unlikely that Brendan Rodgers’ side can lay a glove on Liverpool and Manchester City, although the manager will be delighted with the progress his team have made since taking charge and they’re favourites to beat Arsenal in this Saturday teatime clash.

Leicester are trading as the 11/8 favourites to land a maximum haul and they’ve won four out of five top flight clashes at the King Power thus far. Indeed, since drawing 0-0 with Wolves in their opener, it’s been four straight wins and that includes the scalp of Tottenham Hotspur.

They don’t look a bad price to extend their winning run, although Arsenal will still be a warm order for some punters who will expect the Gunners to play on the front foot against a team that finished well behind them in the standings last term.

Unibet offer 19/10 that Unai Emery’s side boost their hopes of landing a top four spot by beating their Midlands opponents, with the Spaniard currently looking for results to make his job more secure at the Emirates.

The draw is trading at odds of 13/5 with Paddy Power and there’s the possibility that the two teams will cancel each other out. Perhaps Leicester will have to get used to trying to break teams down after winning 9-0 at Southampton.

However, we’re more than happy to take the home side at 11/8 to win this clash. They look the more in-form team at the moment, with strength in every department and we’re not sure the same thing can be said about the Gunners.

First Goalscorer

There are a couple of sharp shooters featuring near the head of the First Goalscorer betting market, with Jamie Vardy having famously nearly signed for Arsenal a couple of seasons ago before deciding to commit his future to Leicester City.

Vardy has had an unbelievable rise through the ranks from non-league to one of the most predatory strikers in the Premier League and the former Fleetwood striker is 9/2 to score the opening goal in this clash.

However, it was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who was among the leading scorers in the Premier League last season and the Gabon forward has been saving his team’s bacon on more than one occasion this term.

Bam Bam is a 5/1 poke to score first, while Nicolas Pepe is another forward who has been looking lively in recent games and the Ivory Coast international can be backed at a bigger 7/1.

Asian Handicap

A few years ago, it might have been incredible to back Arsenal at 13/19 with BetVictor to merely win the game although that is the price you can get about the Gunners with a +0.5 goal start.

That means that the visitors simply need to draw the game in order to profit with your bet, while a victory would also see you in clover and it’s clear that Unai Emery’s side are struggling when it comes to games on the road.

For those that want to back Leicester with a little bit of insurance against the draw, then the 3/4 about the home side off zero might make appeal, with a 75% return on your stake coming back if they win and money back if this one ends all square.

There’s a feeling that Leicester could potentially win this game with something to spare and they are trading at 11/4 off a -1 goal handicap which means money back if they win by a single goal but a profit if the margin of victory is two goals or more.

Both Teams to Score

Matches between Arsenal and Leicester tend to be exciting affairs and it’s strange to think that the Gunners won 5-2 at the King Power Stadium during the season where the Foxes won the Premier League title.

That match and several others will be in the minds of punters when they consider the BTTS market and William Hill have 1/2 about the “Yes” option which involves both teams finding the net at least once.

BetVictor have 9/5 that at least one team fails to find the net and that seems a distinct possibility considering that Arsenal failed to scored at Bramall Lane a few weeks ago.

Sometimes it pays to go against the grain with these sort of markets and the Leicester defence is looking fairly strong on home soil.

Over / Under Goals

Leicester have scored twelve goals in five home matches so far, while Arsenal have managed just five goals in five away games. Despite these facts, William Hill have 4/7 about Over 2.5 Goals happening and the majority of punters will expect the net to bulge on several occasions.

You can push the envelope further and back the 6/4 about Over 3.5 Goals although we have a nagging doubt that Leicester might be capable of a professional shut out in this clash and Under 2.5 Goals could be worthy of a punt at 11/8.
