Brentford v Arsenal Prediction: A 42/1 Bet Builder to get the season off to a flyer
The Premier League returns on Friday night with new boys Brentford taking on Arsenal at 8pm live on Sky Sports.
The bookmakers make the Gunners odds on to get their season off to a winning start but there'll be a full crowd behind the Bees who were promoted last season via the Championship play-offs.
I've picked out three bets I like the look of for the match which also combine for a 42/1 Bet Builder with Paddy Power. Click the link to get that bet added straight to betslip.
Brentford v Arsenal Tips
Brentford have finally reached the promised land and that is largely thanks to the efforts of Ivan Toney.
Thomas Frank has confirmed his talismanic forward will start and with the Brentford Community Stadium rocking, I think they will give Arsenal a good game.
Toney racked up 33 goals last season with 17 coming at home and he will of course be their main focus in attack.
An early goal would send would fantasy league managers into rapture and could help seal a fairy-tale start to the season.
Emile Smith Rowe is a player I am looking forward to seeing kick on again this season. He will sit in behind the strikers and be key to linking up the play.
He isn’t shy of a long-range effort and should Brentford go to gung-ho they could well be caught out by an Arsenal counter attack.
A backer of this bet a few times last season and I was surprised to see Brentford’s most booked player at such a price.
He picked up nine bookings in the Championship and he will again be asked to play in the defensive midfield role breaking up the game.
A high energy player that will feed off the occasion and hopefully get stuck in.
If you also add all three selection in a Bet Builder with Paddy Power it pays 42/1 (prices correct at the time of writing)
