Arsenal and Liverpool have conspired to serve up a conveyor belt of thrilling contests in recent campaigns and those showdowns have had a host of reassuring similarities to latch onto for those betting on their upcoming clash.
Let our betting tipsters put you in the picture with four Arsenal vs Liverpool betting tips that always do the business when the two clubs collide.
The cup runneth overs
Across the last five throwdowns, a monumental 27 goals have found their way past the sides’ overworked goalkeepers – an average of 5.4 strikes a game.
If you haven’t been living under a particularly heavy and sizeable boulder in recent seasons that might not be overly surprising, but you might be at least slightly startled to know that, in spite of this, over 3.5 total match goals is still trading at 11/8.
Not bad considering it’s a bet that’s found the net in the last five editions of this blue riband Premier League rivalry and seven of the last eight.
Bobby’s bound to bag
The Gunners must be sick of the sight of Roberto Firmino, who’s punished them even more regularly than Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane of late.
Firmino has struck in each of his last three outings against the north London outfit and notched a total of five times in their past five meetings.
Having netted once in his last eight for the Reds, he’s available to score against one of his favourite foes at generous anytime goalscorer odds of 13/8, while he’s 6/1 to net the opener.
The first 45 minutes belong to Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp hasn’t lost against the Gunners since taking over at Anfield and won he’s three of his last four against them. Finishing the first half with an advantage has been a recurring theme.
Liverpool have beaten Arsenal at half-time in their last three meetings, making odds of 8/5 about them doing so again at the Emirates (longer than their match betting fractions) a pleasingly-priced play.
Arsenal received the most bookings in each of the last three editions
Given the Merseysiders have been in the ascendancy over recent renewals, it’s perhaps unsurprising that the north Londoners have worn down the referee’s pencil to a greater degree.
Despite the hosts being 12-matches unbeaten under Unai Emery at the time of writing, it’s still the visitors whose stock remains higher, making Arsenal the side to be on in the most bookings points betting at 13/10.
