Arsenal are now unlikely to finish second but can secure third place in the Premier League if they take at least a point from their home clash with Sunderland. A share of the spoils would also be enough to ensure the Black Cats avoid relegation but although they’ve look a touch more solid of late, it’s difficult to envisage Dick Advocaat’s men emerging with anything from their trip to North London.
Bookies agree so the Gunners are just 3/10 at Stan James to leave the Wearside outfit sweating on the season’s final weekend while the visitors are as high as 12/1 (BetVictor) to pick up a shock victory.
Arsenal dominance seems the most likely outcome and Winner.com’s 5/6 about them leading at the end of each half is banker material. However, focusing on Sunderland’s lack of goals is arguably the best route to profit and betway quote a generous 21/20 for Arsene Wenger’s charges to prevail ‘to nil’. More precisely, bet365 chalk the hosts up at 6/1 to notch twice without reply.
Arsenal to beat Sunderland 2-0 – 6/1 (bet365)
