Hull host Arsenal at the KC Stadium on Monday night in a crucial match for the Tigers, who are still are not certain of avoiding the drop. However, they are as big as 6/1 with Sky Bet to go down, and a win here would almost secure their survival.
Since Hull have been in the Premier League they have only beaten Arsenal once (D1, L6) and they have yet to get a point off the Gunners at home in that time.
But the Tigers have won their last two games without conceding a goal and given that Arsenal have only scored one goal in their last two games, we can see this being a low scoring affair – certainly in the first half.
We recommend backing a 0-0 First Half Correct Score at 7/4 with Bet365, especially as Arsenal haven’t conceded a first half goal in their last 13 Premier League matches; while backing Under 2.5 Goals at 4/5, also with Bet365, looks worthwhile.
We also suggest backing Alexis Sanchez to score the first goal here – the Chilean has managed to score in both meetings between these sides this season (league and FA Cup) and he can be backed at stand-out odds of 11/2 with Coral to score the first goal, as well as 13/8 with Bet365 to score at any time.
Meanwhile, Paddy Power are taking a risk by offering best odds of 5/1 on Olivier Giroud to score the first goal (as short as 3/1 elsewhere). The Frenchman has scored six goals in his last seven Premier League away matches and you can back him each-way with Paddy Power, who offer 1/3 odds for the place in this market – if your player scores any of the first five goals.
Finally, as Arsenal have won their last four league away games by a one-goal margin, we recommend backing a 1-0 Arsenal win at best odds of 13/2 with BetVictor.
