Arsenal Vs Sparta Prague: Prediction and Betting Suggestions
By Aries, Arsenal Analysis odds analyser
The suggestions contained in this posting should be read in conjunction with the preview of this game published on this site under the heading:
Arsenal Vs Sparta Prague: Will Arsenal shoot themselves in the foot?
Our previous predictions for the outcome of the games (not the actual scores or other suggestions) have turned out correct! This does not of course mean that the prediction that follows will turn out to be right!
Home win 3/10 Betfair, Betdirect
The prediction for this game is for a home win, 1-0
If Arsenal approach the game as they should a home win is the most probable outcome. The odds quoted are nothing to shout home about but could form part of a larger bet including other games.
Correct Score: Home win 1-0 13/12 VC Bet
If Arsenal go one up they may just contain their opponent rather than go for more.
Half Time/ Full Time: Draw/Arsenal 4/1 Boylesports, Sky bet, Ladbrokes
Arsenal may respond to the opponent’s first half energy by trying to restrict rather than create. So a draw for the first half and win overall.
First goalscorer: Adebayor 5/1 Betfred
Emmanuel Adebayor is coming back into fitness after missing part of the pre season and the first three official games (two in the Premiership and the first leg in Prague). Too much attention given to RVP by the opposing defenders may allow him more space to operate. He will be looking to score his first goal of the season. Check team line up before committing.
Last goalscorer: Eduardo Da Silva 4/1 with most bookies
Eduardo may be started or brought on in the later stages of the game as Wenger tries to give him more playing time. If he comes on late he may be able to take advantage of tiring legs. Check team line up before committing.
The prices quoted are the best prices available at time of writing this article.
You should check team line ups before placing bets especially those involving individual players.
You should only bet if you have money to lose.
