Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tips and Predictions

Arsenal got their Premier League campaign off to the worst possible start with a 2-0 defeat away to Premier League new boys Brentford. Chelsea were comfortable winners over Crystal Palace in their season opener at Stamford Bridge last weekend. Over the four most recent competitive encounters between the sides Arsenal have won three and one ended level but Chelsea are by far the bookies’ favourites here. Let’s dig into the stats to find some possible value in the betting markets.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tips and Predictions

Arsenal could really have their work cut out for them here facing the reigning Champions League winners. Arsenal’s defeat to Brentford looks terrible at first glance but really it must be said that it can be put down to some great goalkeeping. Arsenal came close on a few occasions and it wasn’t wayward shooting that kept them scoreless, it was the performance of their Spanish goalkeeper David Raya.

Arsenal’s Premier League form is quite good, they’ve won five of their last six games in the league but their preseason was pretty disastrous; losing three of their four games, one of which was against Chelsea. Chelsea were outstanding against Crystal Palace last weekend but were a bit rusty looking against Villarreal in the Super Cup final, which they ended up winning on penalties.

As mentioned above, Arsenal are unbeaten against Chelsea over their four most recent games at both stadiums. And while that will give the Arsenal faithful much hope the fact remains they’ve had a terrible preseason and other than Brighton’s Ben White their signings have been mediocre at best. Chelsea have obviously re-signed Romelu Lukaku and it’s barely even worth saying but there’s a whole world of difference between Ben White and Romelu Lukaku.

Much was mad of Arsenal’s bad record at home last season where they won just eight of their 19 at home in the Premier League, drawing four and losing seven. Chelsea won 10 of their 19 away PL games last season, drawing four and losing just five. Arsenal averaged 1.26 goals per game last season too, conceding 1.11. Chelsea on their league travels last season scored an average of 1.42 goals per game and conceded 0.95.

While Arsenal’s woes are being written about all over the press and social media too we have to take a look at the odds for Both Teams to Score here. In five of the last six meetings between the sides at both stadiums BTTS has landed and with both having had strong goal scoring averages last season this looks like it might be the best bet here. Of course, Chelsea are strong at the back but Chelsea conceded at least one in five of their last eight away PL matches. The best current price on BTTS is available at 2.10 with various bookies.
