Arsenal vs Huddersfield Town betting preview


Arsenal welcome Huddersfield Town to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon looking to extend their unbeaten run to 21 games in all competitions.

The Gunners have enjoyed another positive week as they came from behind to beat Tottenham 4-2 in the North London Derby last weekend before going to Old Trafford and earning a 2-2 with Manchester United.

Unai Emery felt his side were unfortunate not to take home all three points on Wednesday night but the result means Arsenal remain unbeaten in 20 games and sit level on points with fourth-placed Chelsea in the league table.

Another win over Huddersfield on Saturday would boost their chances of finishing in the top four – although the majority of online casinos and bookmakers price Arsenal as fifth favourites to qualify for the Champions League next season so Emery still has a lot of work to do.

Team news

Arsenal will be without Rob Holding after he was ruled out for several months with a knee ligament injury while Aaron Ramsey is also a doubt after picking up an ankle problem against United in midweek.

Mesut Ozil will face a late fitness test after missing the last three games with a back problem while Danny Welbeck remains out with a broken ankle but Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal could return to the squad.

As for Huddersfield, they’ll be without the suspended Philip Billing and Steve Mounie for the trip to north London but Chris Lowe could return from a shoulder injury.

Betting odds

Arsenal are understandably the 2/7 favourites to win the game with Huddersfield priced as the 11/1 outsiders to take home the three points. The draw can be backed at odds of 11/2 but most punters will fancy a home win here.

The Gunners won this fixture 5-0 last season and are unbeaten in 10 games against Huddersfield in all competitions so this should be a comfortable afternoons work for the Londoners. A 3-0 win at odds of 7/1 looks tempting.

Alexandre Lacazette has been named on the bench for the last two matches but he’s made a real impact against both Spurs and United in the second half so the Frenchman is a good bet at 3/1 to be the last goalscorer against Huddersfield. If you use mobile betting and bet in-play once you know the teams, then these odds may be even greater. 

For those looking for even more value, then Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score first in a 3-0 win looks a solid punt at odds of 24/1. The Gabon international is the Premier League’s top scorer and will fancy his chances against a Huddersfield side who sit 17th in the table.
