Betting Tips

This game finished 2-2 earlier in the season and all indications point to a similar outcome this time round. Arsenal will have played twice since Palace’s last fixture and the away side are extremely strong on the road – they have already notched up seven victories away from Selhurst Park in the league this season. This is likely to be a much closer and more entertaining affair than predicted, making this among the best online betting odds for this round of fixtures. The last three fixtures between the two have produced 14 goals, and 888Sport price it 8/5 that there are over 3.5 goals here.

The Gabonese striker already has four goals to his name in this competition this season and 22 in total this campaign. He has also found the net four times in his last five home appearances for the Gunners and is facing a team who conceded three goals last time out in their defeat at Manchester City. Auba is 4/5 anytime at 888Sport.
