500/1 for an Arsenal Treble
For the last few weeks all the talk has been of the Manchester City quadruple, followed briefly by the Chelsea treble, well what about the Arsenal treble?
The odds on an Arsenal treble are a whopping 500/1 with BetVictor, and to be honest, rightly so. They have Bayern Munich in the next round of the Champions League, so most punters are fairly certain that the whole crazy idea will end there.
Bayern are the most solid looking team in Europe at the moment. They have a, won 19, drawn 2, lost 0, record in the Bundesliga, giving them a 16 point lead at the top. And true to form at the weekend, they won again, this time 4-0 at home to SC Freiburg, in a fairly easy workout.
Arsenal can only dream of such comfortable home luxuries, as they have struggled in their last two league games. This probably goes a long way to explaining why Arsenal are 40/1 to win the Champions League, while Bayern Munich are a best price of 13/5, both with Ladbrokes (Free £50 Bet).
A domestic double of Premier League and FA Cup is 33/1 with BetVictor, I must admit to being a bit surprised to see odds that long.
After all, Arsenal are only point off the top of the Premier League and into the 6th round of the FA Cup, where they will host Everton at the Emirates.
Maybe the most damning indictment from the bookmakers and punters alike for Arsenal, is the fact that they are a best price of 1/3 with Paddy Power to win absolutely nothing this season.
Since Arsenal hit the top of the Premier League earlier in the season, bookmakers and punters have been seemingly waiting for it all to go wrong, and for Arsenal to start their spectacular fall from grace.
Well it appears that nothing has changed.
