Arsenal Favored Going for Third Win in Row

Arsenal vs. Wolves: Premier League Round 20 Betting Picks 

Arsenal looks to boost their chances of finishing in the Premier League top four with a victory Thursday against Wolves. The teams clash at London’s Emirates Stadium, and our sportsbook is offering a great range of markets and props for the action.

In-Form Arsenal

There’s no denying the constant failings of those around Arsenal have opened the best opportunity for the Gunners of returning to the Champions League in some time. However, in this competitive league., favorites will swap places countless times across the remaining dozen games. The hosts are sitting sixth in the standings with 42 points, four points behind fourth-placed Man United, but with three games in hand on the Red Devils.

Arsenal favorites to make it three wins in a row

This game against Wolves, originally scheduled for December 28th, was postponed due to a combination of injuries and covid-19 cases in Wolves’ squad. The Gunners enter this match on the back of two wins in a row and are priced at -160 on the three-way moneyline, according to the latest soccer odds. They already played Wolves two rounds ago for their second match of the season, defeating them, 1-0, on the road.

That was just the kind of performance Mikel Arteta had in mind when he sacrificed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, selling him to Barcelona. It was committed, determined and organized, an intense end of the game courtesy of Gabriel Martinelli, sent off with 20 minutes remaining. Before that, Arsenal was impressively smooth, creating goal opportunities. Emile Smith Rowe returned against Brentford, scoring the first goal in the 2-1 win.

With Martin Odegaard, Alexandre Lacazette and Bukayo Saka on the right, Arsenal have the goods to worry any opponent. With Arsenal already being knocked out of the FA Cup and EFL Cup, Arteta’s troops’ main objective is to finish in top four and play in the Champions League group stages. At home, Arsenal are one of the better teams, sitting third with 26 points in 12 games and a goal differential of 20-9.. There’s no reason to include Arsenal moneyline in your soccer picks and parlays because the price has no value, so we will look elsewhere.

Rock-Solid Wolves

Wolves are sitting seventh in the standings, just two points behind Arsenal. They have the second-best defense in the league, with just 18 goals allowed in 24 games. Wolves have won six of their last eight Premier League games, keeping three clean sheets in the process. They will try to make it three wins in a row after beating Tottenham and Leicester. It’s very important to note that despite sitting sixth, very close to the UCL spots, only Norwich and Burnley have scored fewer goals. It’s the defense that’s making the difference.

Ruben Neves is their player to watch, scored twice in their previous four league games. However, his aggressive style earned him four yellow cards in five games. Wolves increased their chances of European football next season, holding off a resurgent Leicester City in a 2-1 win at the Molineux. Strangely, Wolves are better on the road, witn seven wins and three losses in 12 away games. They’ve conceded just eight goals in the process. Most of their games this season ended with a two-goal maximum, and we expect that again.

Bruno Lage came to Wolves with a mission to make them more exciting, more expansive and more on the front foot. Defenders were told to play higher up the pitch. They can’t change overnight, and for a unit not blessed with pace and fast players, Lage must adapt and wait until next season. Arsenal are huge favorites, but if you’re betting online, never go under -135 for a single bet. We expect a cagey game between two teams fighting for the European spots. We don’t expect Arsenal to score more than one goal.

Pick: Arsenal Under 1½ Goals (-120)
