After a slow start to the season Arsenal have burst into life and have now won 3 matches in a row, most recently beating West Brom 4-0 away from home.
Their last home game was an impressive 3-1 win over Chelsea that started the run and they are up to 11th on the table with 23 points from their 17 matches. arsenal’s home record hasn’t been great this season with just 3 wins in 8 matches and it actually has been outscored at home with 9 goals in the “FOR” column and 11 in the “AGAINST” column. 5 of the 8 Arsenal home matches would have delivered for over 2.5 goal backers.
Crystal Palace are two places behind Arsenal in 13th and they sit just 1 point behind them. Last time out Palace beat Sheffield United 2-0 at home and that broke a run of 5 matches without a victory. They had some good results away from home earlier in the season, but their form has dipped since and overall they have won 3 and drawn 1 of their 8 away fixtures. Palace away matches have averaged 3.1 goals each and 5 of the 8 games would have delivered profits for you had you been backing the 2.5 goals.
Both fixtures between these sides were drawn last season.
