Sunday afternoon’s game between Arsenal and Leeds United will see a young manager in Mikel Arteta take on the old master, Marcelo Bielsa in a game that could go either way. Which side will get the three points? Let’s hunt the best English Premier League value in what should be an entertaining game.
We’ve found three bets, each at odds of 5/1 or better to take advantage of as you look forward to the game, with kick-off at 4.30pm GMT on Sunday February 14th.
Leeds to score two goals and get 6+ corners (11/2)
If there’s one game in this weekend’s Premier League where goals are almost guaranteed, it’s at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal host Leeds United.
The Whites have been a breath of fresh air since their promotion and under Marcelo Bielsa have taken the game to every team that they’ve faced. As a result, they go into this game a place and a point above their hosts, with a game in hand to boot.
Under Mikel Arteta, North London’s former invincibles have lost ten times in the Premier League this season. With striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looking like he’s just signed a new contract rather than wanting to earn one, Leeds can get to Arsenal’s backline and their incessant running will cause Arsenal defenders to panic, and that means corners.
Raphinha, Stuart Dallas and Jack Harrison to have 1+ shot on target each – 8/1
We used paddypower’s Bet Builder facility for this one and it’s way overpriced. Jack Harrison hasn’t just got his eye in right now, it’s as if the Manchester City-owned player is playing with laser vision.
The same can be said for Raphinha, who is attracting the attention of top clubs around Europe and Stuart Dallas is breaking from midfield in exactly the sort of way that will terrify Arsenal’s defensive-minded players – all both of them.
Take all three players to get a shot on target and you’ll be laughing at odds of around 8/1.
Leeds to Win; Leeds Most Corners & Arsenal Most Cards – 35/1
The Whites go into the game as 14/5 underdogs on paddypower, which does not reflect their away form this season in the Premier League at all. While Arsenal have some attacking players back, they concede a lot of ground in the middle of the pitch and Leeds have shown that they can take advantage of that against teams far better than The Gunners, such as Leicester, who were humbled 3-1 at the King Power Stadium by Leeds style of play.
If Leeds are good bets to win, then you have to surmise that they’ll get most corners and teams that push the issue like Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester City often win the corners race whether they win or lose, as Liverpool showed even in defeat on Saturday afternoon.
Add to those facts the knowledge that Arsenal’s disciplinary record is the worst in the Premier League, including five red cards with none for Leeds, and you have a very tasty treble to be found in paddypower’s What Odds section.
You can make all these bets before kick-off at the Emirates Stadium, which is at 4.30pm GMT on Sunday afternoon by registering on the paddypower website right here.
May all your bets be live until the final whistle!
