BPL Odds – Arsenal vs. Burnley
Zack GarrisonNo comments
In its tenth fixture of the Barclays Premier League, Arsenal hosts winless Burnley (Saturday, November 1, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern).
Saturday will be the 88th meeting between the two; the Gunners lead the series with 38 wins, 20 losses, and 30 draws. Arsenal is favored to add to its win total, sitting at -400 in the moneyline. A Burnley victory will pay +1000 and the draw +475.
On paper, the Gunners should cruise to victory at Emirates Stadium. Arsenal is fifth in the BPL table with 14 points (3W, 5D, 1L) and a +4 goal difference. Burnley is in last place in the table, with four points (0W, 4D, 5L) and a league worst -11 goal differential. Last season, Burnley was the runner up in the Football League Championship to Leicester City, and earned promotion to the Premier League. Early in the year, they look poised to return whence they came.
Indeed, this season, Burnley is the only team that has not registered a win.
As a ray of hope for the Burnley side, we offer this peculiar fact: Arsenal has been behind at some point in each of their four Premier League home games this season, and they have only managed one win and three draws.
That said, there is little value in betting anything other than a Gunners win.
