Fulham v Arsenal looks to be the highlight of Monday’s Premiership fixtures and the game will be shown live on Sky Sports 1 which means it could be twice as popular from a betting point of view and Valuechecker appears to have some useful pointers ahead of this match which could lead to a nice profit being made on the match.
Everyone knows about Robin Van Persie’s goalscoring prowess, he scored 35 goals in 2011 which was one short of Alan Shearer’s calendar year record. Perhaps something that has gone unnoticed is RVP’s ability to chip in with so many goals away from home. According to the Arsenal ValueChecker wikis Robin Van Persie scored in Arsenal’s last nine away games last season and 11 of his 18 goals that season came away from home. This doesn’t necessarily increase his chances of scoring the first goal but you’d think the Dutchman might offer a bit of a value in the anytime scorer betting.
Another away pointer from the Arsenal ValueChecker wikis suggests over 2.5 goals should be a good bet here. Last season 14 of Arsenal’s 19 away games contained over 2.5 goals and the season before it was 12. A tip from the Fulham ValueChecker wikis shows how poorly Fulham have done against other London clubs, in the last two full seasons Fulham have only managed to pick up 8 points from 16 London derbies.
The betting on this game is already proving lively, punters seem to have found a bit of value in backing Fulham or Draw in the Double Chance betting, that has been cut from 1.84 to 1.76 which represents an almost 10% drop in odds. Further price changes can be viewed on the ValueChecker Steamers page and betting activity in this match should increase as kick off approaches.
