Arsenal v Brentford betting tips and predictions

Arsenal win & Over 3.5 Goals @ 11/8

Brentford are the next team in line trying to stop Arsenal from running riot and the omens are not good.

The Bees are without a win in four and became the fourth team to concede 50 goals in the Premier League when they drew 2-2 at home to Chelsea last time out.

That’s 11 goals shipped in those four matches and now comes the job of trying to repel the division’s most in-form attack, an Arsenal side who have won seven straight league games and scored 31 goals in the process.

Last time out they were merciless, racing into a five-goal lead at the break at Sheffield United before finally declaring at 6-0.

They have scored four or more goals in eight different league matches this season and in a title race which could yet be decided by goal difference, don’t expect any let up from the Gunners.

First things first they need the three points but since they look to be playing at a different level to Brentford at the moment, that should be a formality.

Bees’ boss Thomas Frank has been desperately unlucky to lose defender after defender to injury this season and will line up with a back five at the Emirates missing Aaron Hickey, Ben Mee, Ethan Pinnock and Rico Henry.

At the other end of the pitch, with Ivan Toney back and Bryan Mbeumo close to a return, things are far rosier.

But this fixture is all about how the Bees cope with an Arsenal frontline on fire, an attack that is also blessed with bench cover in the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Eddie Nketiah and Leandro Trossard.

Goals come from all angles with Arsenal though Brentford are a threat, especially from set-plays and counter punches. Expect a home win - and plenty of goals.

Martin Odegaard anytime scorer @ 6/4

With six goals and six assists to his name this season, Martin Odegaard is a pivotal part in Arsenal’s frontline.

Playing pretty much where he likes between the lines, Odegaard isn’t easy for defenders to pick up and isn’t easy to stop.

The Norwegian playmaker has scored in recent demolitions of Burnley and Sheffield United and is fancied to find the net against a second-choice Brentford rearguard.

Odegaard is averaging 2.2 shots per game and has only twice all season failed to get a shot away in a game. But now, with Arsenal looking more expansive and creative than ever, expect the Norwegian to have a fair few looks at Mark Flekken’s goal.

Mathias Jorgensen To Be Booked @ 12/5

Brentford defender Mathias Jorgensen is in pursuit of an unwanted hat-trick, one he’s worth backing to pull off.

The Dane, now a key figure in Thomas Frank’s back line with injuries having ravaged the West London club’s defensive ranks, has managed to find his way into the referee’s notebook in each of their last two games.

A high boot on Lucas Paqueta’s chin resulted in Simon Hooper flashing a yellow at him in their 4-2 loss at Brentford.

Then he incurred the wrath of Jarred Gillett in the 2-2 draw against Chelsea by dragging down Mykhailo Mudryk.

Back in his FC Copenhagen pomp he once chalked up 10 yellows in a season so he’s no stranger to spelling his name to match officials.

And given the runaround he’s likely to get from Arsenal’s attacking superstars, he looks a decent price to see yellow once again.
