Mikel Arteta's underperforming Arsenal will welcome Roy Hodgson's relegation-threatened Crystal Palace to the Emirates Stadium on the 20th of January. This is an important Premier League clash for both teams, but for different reasons. Do I think Arsenal will arrest their slump, or will Palace get a big three points in order to pull further away from the dreaded drop zone? Keep reading this in-depth prediction to find out how I think this match will unfold.

🏆 Arsenal vs Crystal Palace: Who Will Win?

betiton-free-bet-bannerbetiton-free-bet-banner

On Christmas Day, Arsenal fans around the world were sitting at the top of the league and thinking about their first Premier League title since 2004 but, fast forward a couple of weeks, and the Gunners have hit a bad patch of form that has seen them slide down to fourth in the table and get knocked out of the FA Cup. From the last 18 points that have been up for grabs in the league, they have picked up just seven points - this run included defeats to West Ham and Fulham. Arsenal fans, as a result, have gone into meltdown.

Crystal Palace are sitting just six points above the Relegation Zone, so they will be eager to put on a run of positive results as soon as possible so that they are not looking over their shoulder come the business end of the season. In their last six previous matches, they have picked up just five points, which puts them in 16th place in the form table. They did draw against Manchester City in that run, which will give them some confidence heading into this match against Arsenal.

Both of these teams have a lot of pressure on their shoulders at the moment for different reasons, so it could end up being a cagey affair. With this and the current form of both teams in mind, I think that there is a chance that the match will end in a draw. What score, though? Well, I would be happy to back an entertaining 2-2 draw.

My Prediction: 🏆 Arsenal 2 Crystal Palace 2 ⚽

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace: Match Winner Odds

Unsurprisingly, Arsenal are the big favourites to win this game, and the odds that are being offered for them to come out on top are not really worth your while - unless you add them to a big accumulator. The odds for a draw are pretty enticing and, like I said above, I feel that there is a good chance that this game will end in a stalemate. You can see the match winner odds for yourself in the following table:

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace: Both Teams To Score Odds

Arsenal have 37 goals so far this season, which makes them the seventh-highest scorers in the league, while only Sheffield United and Burnley have scored fewer goals than Crystal Palace. Out of the previous ten meetings between these two London-based clubs, six of them have seen both teams find the back of the net. The bookies do not think that both teams will score, which is something that I disagree with. You can see the available odds below:

✔️ Arsenal vs Crystal Palace - Betting Tips

Now that you are privy to the odds that the top bookmakers are offering, I am going to take the time to provide you with my football betting tips for this important EPL clash.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a draw: The bookmakers have Arsenal as the overwhelming favourites, but I feel that they are basing their odds on both teams' overall position in the table, and not on most recent form. Over their last six matches, Arsenal have picked up 7 points while Palace have picked up 5. There has not been much between them in form over this period, which is why it would not surprise me to see the game end all square. If you want to back the draw too, then Spreadex Sports are offering odds of 5.25.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: Only Liverpool have conceded fewer goals than Arsenal this season, but in recent matches, they have conceded twice to Fulham and West Ham, while they conceded three against Luton Town. Crystal Palace have not kept a clean sheet in their previous six matches, so I do not imagine them being able to keep Arsenal out. If you want to bet on this outcome, then Spreadex are offering odds of 2.20.
  • Tip 3: Bet on the score to be 2-2: If you are looking for a market with some very enticing odds because there is more risk involved, then I suggest that you bet on the correct score being 2-2. If you bet on this market with William Hill and the match goes on to be a 2-2 draw, then you can find odds of 29.00.
  • Tip 4: Bet on Kai Havertz to be booked: Some punters like to bet on a player to be carded and, if you are such a punter, then I recommend that you consider betting on Havertz to be booked. He has picked up more yellows than any other Arsenal player this season, and you can find odds of 2.75 for the German to be booked.

1️⃣ Arsenal Update

When Arsenal were sitting at the top of the table at Christmas some pundits and fans were talking about who their main rivals are for the title, but now the conversation has turned to whether they will be able to claim a top-four spot and a guaranteed spot in next season's Champions League. AFTV on YouTube has gone into meltdown, and fans of other clubs will be thinking that normality has returned to the football world once again. They have one point from the last nine on offer, and failure to beat a lowly Palace side will not go down well in North London.

2️⃣Crystal Palace Update

Crystal Palace have one aim each season, and that is to stay in the Premier League, and at this current moment in time, they are looking nervously over their shoulders. Due to the fact that Sheffield, Burnley, and Luton Town are pretty poor, Palace should stay up pretty comfortably in the end, but you can never be too sure in the Premier League. Picking up 5 points from the last 18 really is not going to make Palace fans breathe a little easier - a win over Arsenal definitely would though.
