Arsenal vs Leicester predictions: score, best bet, scorer tips
Correct score prediction: Arsenal 3-1 Leicester, odds @ 10/1
After they shared 11 goals across two clashes last term, it’s a must that our Arsenal vs Leicester correct score prediction is devoid of zeros.
Only Manchester City have bagged more Premier League goals than the Gunners this term, with the increasingly-lethal attacking symbiosis between Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang responsible for eight of the 18 they’ve netted so far.
The north London side have notched three or more in six of their last nine outings in all competitions and our betting tips are wagering them to register a trio against the Foxes, with the visitors bagging a consolation.
Leicester have yet to be shut out on their top-flight travels this term and struck at least twice in their last three divisional away outings. Trading at a more substantial 28/1 in our Arsenal vs Leicester predictions, the 4-2 reckoning could also be worth a small interest, for reasons that will come into focus in the Arsenal vs Leicester best bet section.
Best bet: Arsenal (-4) to beat Leicester @ 11/1
Hitting their stride under former Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain gaffer Emery, the Gunners have won their last six matches by a two-goal margin of superiority at the very least.
A Foxes defence that gave up four goals away to Bournemouth in September are more than capable of going down by a similar margin. This Arsenal vs Leicester prediction gets the nod over the home win/both teams to score wager as it’s at peace with the visitors drawing a blank too.
With Arsenal winning two of their last three Emirates outings to nil, that’s worth taking into account if you’re looking for a bigger price than the home win for your multiple.
Predicted scorer: Harry Maguire to score last @ 28/1
Lacazette and Aubameyang are sure to be fresh in punters’ minds after their braces against Fulham last time out and both are 10/3 joint-favourites in the first goalscorer betting.
The latter is in particularly dangerous form and rates our most reliable Arsenal vs Leicester goalscorer prediction.
For Leicester, Jamie Vardy’s record of six goals in six league starts against the Gunners means he has to be taken into account as a 17/10 anytime pick in our betting tips or at odds of 13/2 for a last-goal consolation.
At 28/1 in the same market, Maguire looks a value betting selection in our Arsenal vs Leicester predictions, having netted the last of proceedings in two of the Foxes’ last three road games.
