Our betting guru Jones Knows believes Arsenal will have too much for Crystal Palace on Monday Night Football.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace, Monday 8pm, live on Sky Sports
Arsenal have won five of their last six home games in all competitions. This coincided with a markedly improved defensive performance over the past few weeks, keeping three clean sheets in their last four games with Aaron Ramsdale’s defensive centerline, Gabriel and Ben White showing early signs of promise. I think they will have too many for Palace here.
Tracking Emile Smith Rowe through various shooting and scoring markets has been a profitable strategy so far this season and there is no reason to give it up just yet, especially with the confidence flowing after scoring three. goals in his last five games for club and country. Although he plays a very advanced role for Mikel Arteta, he is still valued by the markets as a large and inconsistent player with little end product.
There’s no way we’re going to get prizes like 10/11 with Sky Bet to have at least one shot on target in a few months. It’s a bet that would have won in nine of its last 10 appearances in all domestic and international competitions with its only failure to hit the target in the loss to Manchester City when Arsenal barely ventured out of their own. half. I would expect the Gunners to dominate the territory for much of this meeting which should see Smith Rowe stand out in dangerous areas. He can hit the target.
SCORE PREDICTION: 2-0
BETTING ANGLE: Emile Smith Rowe must have at least one shot on target (10/11 with Sky Bet)
