The Betting - All Markets
Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change
Bournemouth have been hard to catch right this season and 3 top sides have already left this ground with maximum points. However I fancy the home side can be competitive here with Arsenal only rarely hitting top gear on their travels in the season so far.
Finding a bet in my usual odds range is no easy task as the quotes suggest goals for both sides and over 2.5 etc… but I’m going to speculate with a 2-3 goals in total pick in the belief we will see goals but not necessarily the volume the odds suggest.
Bet: Total goals 2-3 at 11/10
