Leeds vs Arsenal Odds: Expect chances in an entertaining affair
Leeds United welcome Arsenal to Elland Road Saturday tea time, one of the two Premier league games to go ahead today after COVID cancellations.
Leeds vs Arsenal Tips:
Leeds come into this fixture off the back of a 7-0 thumping at the home of Champions Manchester City. They are now without 8 senior players, after Dan James was injured and Firpo got suspended Tuesday evening. With just one win in their last 7 games, another loss here could see them further sucked into a relegation scrap.
The Gunners on the other hand have gone under the radar, having sneaked into the top 4 after a 2-0 win vs West Ham. However, they seem a different side away from the Emirates – 3 consecutive losses away from home means they have only picked up a total 7 away points all season, something that Arteta will look to improve on if they have Champions league aspirations.
Leeds vs Arsenal:
This price struck me when I first saw and after some digging it seems to hold some value. It can be found under #OddsOnThat Stats bets on either Betfair or PaddyPower.
With Saka as short as 4/11 for a shot on target with the same bookie, it’s surprising to see him at 5/4 to manage one with his favoured foot. 70% of his shots this season have came with his left foot, cutting in from that right hand side he can be a danger to Leeds’ defence.
He averages the 3rd most shots per game in the Arsenal squad, and has had 3+ in both his last 2 games. I expect Arsenal to get at this injury-hit Leeds team so I am happy backing Saka at this price.
SkyBet have this as short as 13/8, so 3/1 looks a great price when you consider the form of the young man.
Smith Rowe only managed 25 minutes off the bench vs West Ham and still managed a goal. With that being said that should guarantee him some good minutes Vs Leeds. The Arsenal Ace has scored in 5 of his last 7 appearances for the Gunners and is putting up some really good shot numbers.
He is top scorer for Arteta’s men this season, so 3/1 looks a play when you factor in the leaky nature of this Leeds defence.
Alongside my anytime goalscorer selection in Smith Rowe, for the longshot I’ve added in a Tyler Roberts card.
He’s been booked in 3 of his 5 starts this campaign, and has been booked once off the bench. The Striker who operates in a deeper role nowadays, often dives in to tackles and has a habit of mistiming them. He completes the longshot to create a 19/1 shot.
