Betting Tips for the game
Arsenal lost 3-2 against Southampton last weekend in what was the first defeat for the team in 23 games across all competitions. This was followed by a 2-0 loss against Spurs in the League Cup quarter-finals.
Burnley parked the bus and came within a whisker of getting a point against Tottenham but Christian Eriksen scored late to hand a 1-0 win for Mauricio Pochettino’s men. This was the fourth defeat in the last five games for Sean Dyche’s men.

Despite a whopping price of 15.00, we would not back Burnley for a victory in this match. The Clarets have been disappointing throughout the campaign and they are unlikely to carry any motivation to go in search of a winner in this match. Burnley may adopt the same tactics shown in the match against Spurs; the Clarets ended up having no shots on target in the 90 minutes. Arsenal may see this match as a repeat of the game against Huddersfield, and they may have to rely on the odd goal – especially if an early goal does not come about. Our preview would pick a win for Arsenal.

Arsenal vs Burnley draw odds: 6.50
Burnley win odds: 15.00
Correct Score odds
This match should be low goals with Burnley likely to sit back deep and defend with a lot of players. Arsenal will undoubtedly have most of the ball but they have not been clinical in recent matches. Even against Huddersfield, a late winner from Lucas Torreira was essential to see the club through to a win. Our correct score prediction would go with an Arsenal 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Since Burnley are expected to sit deep in order to try and get a point out of this match, this game may not be one to experience a lot of goals. Even though there is a likelihood of the game opening up with an early goal from Arsenal, our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been at the end of some good moves of late. After having an excellent shot-to-goals ratio early in the campaign, Aubameyang now finds himself with no goals in his last four appearances. Yet, a forward of his calibre may not go through an extended goal drought – especially when he has been at the end of good moves. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
