Arsenal v Albion betting preview

Coral talk us through their best odds

ALBION head to the Emirates on Boxing Day to take on Arsenal in the Premier League. The Club’s official betting partner Coral have provided their preview of the game below…

Under 2.5 Goals has paid out in nine of Albion’s last 11 away matches and is on offer at a reasonable looking 27/20 - but you might want to look at Both Teams to Score…

Five of the Baggies’ last six away and all of Arsenal’s last eight have seen goals at both ends. Coral offer 10/11 for another here.  

Arsenal start at short 1/3 favourites which means there are some huge prices to be had in the Draw and Away Win markets. You’ll get 4/1 for the Draw, boosted to 11/2 in the Draw & Under 2.5 Goals market – which has paid out in all five Draws this season. 

Taking the Draw/ Draw in the Half-time/ Full-time market pushes the price up to 13/2.

The 1-1 Correct Score has paid out in four of those Draws, available here at 17/2. And if you are backing the West Brom win, take the West Brom & Over 2.5 Goals rather than the straight Away Win. 

Not only does it return almost twice the prices – 14/1 to 17/2 – but it has paid out in five of the six wins this season.  

In the Goalscorer markets in-form Salomon Rondon remains the ‘go to’ guy at 8/1 to Score First and 14/5 Anytime. But it is worth noting that Matt Phillips has hit three in his last seven and is on offer at 10/1 and 4/1 respectively.
