The Arsenal/Chelsea battle is almost here, with plenty of fans lining up to see if Chelsea will continue to give everyone something to talk about, or if Arsenal will surge ahead of them.
For punters, handicapping is a critical skill that has to come into play if we’re going to make the best bets possible. Looking at the true performance abilities of a team is a good way to get the ball rolling. And when it comes to Chelsea, who should we really keep an eye on? The spotlight needs to go on Thibaut Courtois, a fierce goalkeeper who has been outstanding so far.
Will Courtois be able to keep it up, though? That’s the ultimate question that will be answered during the game. Chelsea has been in great form and winning the league is almost certain. Yet football just wouldn’t be the same without that last minute upset, that chance that things just aren’t what they seem.
Arsenal’s goalkeeper is none other than David Ospina. Arsenal fans are hopping that he will be able to rise up and stop one of the greatest threat in the Chelsea´s squad – Hazard.
Arsenal has some outstanding players, but Chelsea has the winning performance record on their side. Crowd sentiment is also going to play a role in the betting. People are obviously going to cheer for Arsenal and bet heavily on the team. Does that mean you can’t make money on Arsenal? Of course not. Look for bets that let you adjust the outcomes, such as goals scored or whether or not they will have a clean sheet. We think Ospina is very talented, but Courtois seems to bring just a little more to the table. We’ll be watching the game closely because we would love to see Arsenal take all 3 points today to keep up the suspense in the Premier League a little bit longer. Betting on Chelsea though, given Courtois’ performance, could put quite a bit of money in your pocket.
