ARSENAL v HULL
WILLIAM HILL EXCLUSIVE!
Firm announces 3/1 Arsenal to score a header
Well known firm William Hill have announced they are offering free bets worth £25/€25 to all new customers this week, plus are offering a stand out price of 3/1 for Arsenal to score with a header!
There is no let-up in the tough fixture list for Hull City as after putting in an enormous amount of work to beat Liverpool on Sunday, Steve Bruce’s babes now have to travel to league leaders Arsenal.
The Gunners are now as short as 5/2 to win the Premier League after cementing their stranglehold at the top of the division, which currently is at four points, with a 3-0 win at Cardiff.
Aaron Ramsey returned to haunt his former club with two well-taken goals – his tally for the season in all competitions is now at 13 – and Mesut Ozil set up Mathieu Flamini to slam home against Cardiff.
They should be very confident about taking on a side that have lost eight of the last nine meetings against them but will be confident after stunning Liverpool at the KC Stadium.
It was their first ever win over Liverpool and lifted them to 10th in the league.
The hosts went ahead when Jake Livermore’s shot took a wicked deflection off defender Martin Skrtel and although Steven Gerrard fired home free-kick, goals from David Meyler and a Martin Skrtel own-goal did the damage.
It’s hard to get away from the stats though for Hull City, who have won just one of their last 30 Barclays Premier League away games (W1 D7 L22) and their odds of 16/1 for victory probably wouldn’t even be backed if you added a zero onto those figures.
Meanwhile, this all conquering Arsenal team have lost just one of their last 15 Premier League games at the Emirates Stadium (W11 D3 L1) and will be included in all accumulators over the land at 1/5. The draw can be punted at 13/2.
So with Arsenal so short in the betting, where does the value lie?
Well, after looking at the stats and figures coming into the game, all the smart money should be pouring onto Arsenal to win to nil at 5/6. Arsene Wenger’s men have conceded just 15 goals in their last 23 Premier League games, and have kept five clean sheets in their last six games in all competitions, conceding just one goal in the other match (0-1 at Man Utd).
Hull have failed to score in three of their six away games and their strikers are struggling to find the back of the net with their shots.
Plus, Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny has the best saves to shots ratio (81%) in the Premier League this season (min 16 shots on target faced). Arsenal can win without too much problem.
