Asian Handicap: 0.85 1.5 1.03
Average Odds: 1.30 5.80 9.40
Gunners were reversed by Manchester United for their slovenliness at 2nd half even though leading 1 goal at 1st half last round, and eventually 1:2 lost the match, which made them suffer two consecutive loses. They get W3 L2 in last 5 matches, all of which are opened with Over. In addition, they get W5 D2 L1 in last 8 home matches, scoring 8 while conceding 10 goals. On the other side, West Bromwich 0:2 were defeated by the same rivals at home last round. They have a good run for them with W2 D1 L2 in recent 5 matches and W2 D3 L3 in recent 8 away matches, scoring 7 while conceding 8 goals.
Asian bookmakers open with Arsenal home spread 1.5 in a middle position for this match, who give Gunners sufficient confidence. Look back the last match after last Christmas when Gunners were completely outplayed in 4:0 defeat at away. Recently, they are criticized due to their slovenliness, especially Ozil are absent-minded on the pitch, which can be much likely to give an opportunity for West Bromwich to be taken advantage of. Therefore, West Bromwich may lose but win handicap under the handicap of 1.5, and even get 3 points at away.
Recommendation: West Bromwich +1.5
