Arsenal have been an interesting side to bet on so far in 2017, and here we look at some festive football betting specials on the Gunners for the remainder season.
The 2017/18 English Premier League season is in full swing, and there is a clutch of big games during December - some which will go a long way in sorting the wheat from the chaff at both ends of the table.
Man City have been outstanding in 2017
Unbeaten in 15 games with 14 victories so far, Pep Guardiola’s City are yet to skip a beat.
Remarkably, their main striker Sergio Aguero has only netted 9 of their 46 goals in the top flight this season.
Both Harry Kane and the lightning hot Mo Salah are bossing the Premier League ‘Golden Boot’ race on double figures already.
The Blues have been helped no end by the emergence of Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus as top class attacking midfielders / strikers in their own right.
City rivals Manchester United are also playing some seriously good football this season. They have won 11 of their 15 matches, yet sit still sit 8 points off the leaders.
If you want to spice up your weekend’s football bets why not place a bet on a Premier league game with Freebets.co.uk. One way to do that is by betting on the ‘Specials’ markets with your favourite bookmakers online; or maybe even try out a new bookie and grab yourself a free welcome bet to boot.
After a tasty 2017, Skybet have some value Arsenal based betting markets for the rest of the season
Take SkyBet’s special football betting markets on Arsenal for example - they currently offer ‘Arsenal To Finish Higher Than’ betting odds.
Second in this market at 11/8 (2.38) is Liverpool, who are in fourth place, a point above Arsenal.
However, Arsenal and fourth place is a bit of a magnet pairing in recent years.
Liverpool are relying on Salah
As well as Liverpool are doing now, they could be over-reliant on the fitness of Mohamed Salah. If the Egyptian stays fit, the 11/8 bet should land comfortably.
Next up in the market of four is fellow Londoners Chelsea at 5/2 (3.50).
The West Londoners already have three losses, but are starting to find some real form at just the right time. Meaning Arsenal will have to enjoy a serious run of results just to get on terms with the Blues, let alone go ahead of them.
So while the ‘Outright Winner’ market for the Premier League might have a ‘no-play’ look to it, there are plenty of other football betting opportunities for you to look out for.
Along with a wide range of pre-match markets such as “First Goalscorer” and Scorecasts.
Use your imagination and shop around the more obscure markets. Doing this you can unearth some real value bets to spice up your Christmas football betting.
