Premier League Betting: Southampton vs Arsenal

Sitting atop the Premier League table, the Gunners head to Southampton to face the Saints on Tuesday and are being offered at very close to evens for the outright win.

Bet on today's Premier League matches and take advantage of a sweet deal from William Hill, where you can land a $100 betting bonus.

Arsenal has won seven straight matches in all competitions, and along with Spurs has the best road record in England with a mark of 8-2-1 (W-L-T) coming into Tuesday's clash at Southampton.

The Gunners are natural favourites by bookies worldwide, but William Hill currently has them at a decent 1.95 to win outright. I like that bet considering how well they have performed in league play and the fact that they have won three straight away from Emirates Stadium.

The Arsenal/Arsenal selection is listed at 3.20 which I prefer over the -1 handicap, even though it offers a bit more at 3.50. Four of the last five games have seen Arsenal win by at least a pair of goals. The last time these two played was in late November, in which the Gunners won 2-0.

The draw listing in the outright is currently at 3.30, while the draw with a +1 to start for Southampton is at 3.75.

The hosts aren't fancied to win, which is reflected by an odds offering at 4.00. They are coming off a 2-0 win over Yeovil in the fourth round of FA Cup this past weekend, which extended their unbeaten streak to four matches in all competitions. They are in ninth spot in the table and have a 5-3-3 record at St. Mary's this season.

Last time around it was French international Olivier Giroud notching both goals in the Arsenal victory, and to score today he is offered at 1.91. To repeat his two-goal performance from the fall encounter may be asking for too much, but it can be taken at 5.00. He leads the team in scoring and is tied for sixth in league scoring.
