Latest Betting Odds for Arsenal Vs Crystal Palace

Arsenal will be desperate to put an end to a two-game losing streak in the Premier League when they host London rivals Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday (January 20).

This early (12:30 PM) kick-off is between two teams at different spectrums of the Premier League table and with different agendas. While the Gunners look to get back into the Premier League title race with a win, Roy Hodgson’s side are simply eager to move farther away from being dragged into a relegation battle.

With Mikel Arteta’s side eager to impress their fans with prolific, attacking football again, this should be an action-packed clash in which only the more clinical side will prevail.

Where The Game Will Be Decided

Arsenal are desperate to get a big win to end their abysmal losing run and finally get their season back on track. This London derby is going to be decided in the Crystal Palace half for the majority of the game and be decided on a couple of factors.

Firstly, it’ll depend on whether the Gunners can finally put an end to their goal-scoring woes and finally convert their chances, after being unable to score a goal despite having over 35 shot attempts in their last two home games. Palace will take confidence from their opponents’ troubles in front of the goal and will mostly pack their backline with a lot of numbers.

They will then look to threaten on the counter-attack by dragging too many Arsenal players into their half and also try to cause trouble in set-pieces. Arsenal have to be clinical to put the Eagles to the sword and get a big win.

Betting Predictions

Arsenal might have struggled for goals at the Emirates Stadium of late, but they are averaging 2.2 goals in home games in the Premier League this season. They have also scored two or more goals against the Eagles in four of their last five meetings, so a gamble on the match having 2.5 goals or more can be a smart one.

The Gunners have also been prolific in set-pieces this season, especially from the corners. They have averaged 7.90 corners per game in the Premier League this season, more than any other team. At home, they have averaged 8.70 corners – so betting on them to get over 5 corners in a game they’re expected to dominate can fetch some decent returns.

Bukayo Saka has been one of Europe’s best young players this season, topping the scoring for Arsenal in the Premier League with six goals. He scored in the Gunners’ final game of 2023 and has been involved in 15 goals in the last 18 Premier League London derbies. The stage seems to be set for him to continue his scoring tricks against the Eagles.

With Michael Olise ruled out, a lot of pressure will be on Eberechi Eze to work his magic for Palace in the Arsenal half. Even though he’s started 11 league games this season, the Englishman has had 40 shots – more than any other teammate. So it’d be a smart gamble for him to get over 1 shot on target against an Arsenal side who have been unable to keep a clean sheets in their last five games.
