Hull City v Arsenal: your best bets
- Credit: PA Archive/Press Association Images
Following their, ahem, fortunate victory over Southampton at the weekend, the Gunners travel to Humberside on Saturday for what bookies believe is a foregone conclusion – a league contest against Hull City.
Data issued by the match stats team at bettingexpert.com appears to support this belief because Hull City last recorded a home victory over Arsenal more than a century ago – in 1915, when both sides occupied a berth in the old Division Two.
History and Arsenal’s weekend win have persuaded Unibet to install them as overwhelming 4/7 favourites to harvest maximum points at the KC Stadium.
It’s worth noting that Hull are level on points with their guests, yet online bookie Matchbook.com price them at 6/1 to win, while William Hill post 7/2 against the draw.
As the Tigers have lost only once this season – an unlucky injury-time defeat by Manchester United – their match win odds look rather too frothy.
You may also want to watch:
Punters who concur might be inclined to risk a few quid on the draw, especially as 188bet chalk almost 8/1 against it finishing one apiece and William Hill offer 5/1 against both halves ending on level terms.
Contrarian backers expecting a much closer encounter than many pundits predict may be persuaded to run the rule over the 2/1 posted by bet365 against the opening period ending scoreless. If that appeals, 888sport’s attractive 17/5 for the Gunners to win following a drawn first half also catches the eye.
