Football expert Ryan Elliott has a 12/5 tip for Wolves' mouthwatering tie with Arsenal.
Wolves vs Arsenal on Saturday is a really intriguing battle.
Nuno’s men have won three games in-a-row since returning to action, and haven’t so much as conceded a goal, which has given them a really strong chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season, which would be a huge achievement for the Black Country side.
As for Arsenal, they’ve shaken off their disaster at Brighton by winning three consecutive games of their own, and they now have a really solid base from which to build for the remainder of their season.
After looking long and hard at many of the markets, I’ve decided that 12/5 for a draw is where the value lies.
Two of the last three games between these two have ended in a draw, and without and fans at Molineux, on a level playing field, there really isn’t too much to separate the sides.
Only Liverpool have lost fewer games than Wolves, and incidentally these are also the only two teams who have lost more than Arsenal as well, so for all the Gunners’ issues we’ve seen this season, they’re still hard to beat, especially under Mikel Arteta.
The ever-present threat of Raul Jimenez, Diogo Jota and Adama Traore (who will probably start on the bench once again) will cause Arsenal’s defence real problems, but in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Arsenal possess one of the few strikers in the division who you’d back to breach Wolves’ stubborn defence.
Wolves are probably slightly stronger than Arsenal in my eyes, but not by a huge distance, and Arsenal’s form and momentum, coupled with what we’ve seen in previous years between these two, should see 12/5 for a stalemate prove solid value.
