Arsenal will be looking to move up to 3rd on the table when they host Newcastle in an English Premier League match on Monday night and we take a look at the game from a betting angle.

Arsenal are currently 5th on the table, a point behind Manchester United and Tottenham above them but with a game in hand.  Their most recent EPL action was a 2-0 home win over Manchester United and they have won 9 of their last 10 home games, drawing 1.  In that time they have outscored their opponents by almost 4 goals to 1 and this season Arsenal home games averaged 3.1 goals each, but perhaps surprisingly only 7 of the 16 matches have delivered for over 2.5 goal backers.

Newcastle are 14th on the log and last time out they drew 2-2 away at Bournemouth.  They have really batted on the road and in their last 10 games they have only won 2 matches.  Newcastle away matches have been amongst the lowest scoring in the division averaging just 2.1 goals each with 6 of their 15 road trips reaching 3 goals or more.

Arsenal beat Newcastle 2-1 away in the reverse fixture and the Gunners have won this fixture 1-0 the last two seasons.

 

Suggested bet:  Handicap, Arsenal (-1) at 1/1

I reckon Arsenal will grab this chance to jump to 3rd on the log, something that looked very unlikely earlier in the season.  4 out of their last 4 home wins have been by more than a goal and that included wins over Manchester United and Chelsea.
