One of the most unbalanced games of Day 3 will take place at Emirates, where in-form Arsenal prepare for the visit of Bulgarian champions Ludogorets.
The first clash in history between the two teams is about as unbalanced as it gets – most betting agencies only offer a 1,15 odd for Arsenal to win. Is the difference in value really that large?
Arsenal vs Ludogorets – 19/10/2016
Betting Odds: Arsenal 1.14 or 1/7 Draw 9.00 or 8/1 Ludogorets 23.00 or 22/1
We think so. To say that Arsenal is the better team is hardly news for anyone – Ozil alone is worth more money than the entire Bulgarian team. The truly scary thing about the Gunners is their current form.
Since their 1-1 draw against PSG in France, the team won absolutely each and every game, including a very convincing 3-0 victory against Chelsea. Moreover, they seem to win even if they make a few changes in their starting line-up.
Players like Iwobi, Oxlade-Chamberlain or other youngsters are in top form – and will show this against Ludogorets as well.
Meanwhile, the Bulgarians are completely dominating their domestic league, but aren’t producing big fireworks in the Champions League.
They did manage to win a point away against Basel, which now brings them closer to winning 3rd place in the group. It’s highly unlikely that they’ll manage to stop Arsenal, but even if they don’t, they won’t be very disappointed.
Arsenal vs Ludogorets Betting Tips
That being said, we have to look into bets which focus on Arsenal dominating the game. Arsenal to win and over 2,5 goals is a good idea, along with Arsenal 1/1 (Arsenal at halftime and fulltime). Our favorite goalscorer is Alexis Sanchez, while also favoring Walcott if he features.
A handicap win (Arsenal -1,5) is also a great idea, which will move your odds closer to 1,50 – which is almost playable. Overall, any bet you can find which expects the Gunners to dominate the game is worth considering.

Champions League Football Predictions And Betting Tips
Porto – Leicester is one of the most interesting games of this week’s Champions League, for a wide variety of reasons, almost none of which relate to the English Champions. Leicester have qualified and are doing badly in their domestic league, which opens the door to Porto to do what’s required of them and qualify from the group as well – but will they be able to capitalize? Porto vs Leicester City – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Porto 1.35 or 7/20 Draw 5.25 or 17/4 Leicester City 11.00 or 10/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.85 or 17/20 Under 1.95 or 19/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.25 or 5/4 No 1.57 or 4/7 Porto can qualify in only…
Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow. The two teams haven’t been up to their normal standards of quality in the CL so far, but surely want to play European soccer – even if it is in the Europa League. Tottenham have a slight advantage, but will it prove to be enough? Tottenham vs CSKA Mosow – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Tottenham 1.53 or 8/15 Draw 4.33 or 10/3 CSKA Moscow 7.00 or 6/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.95 or 19/20 No 1.80 or 4/5 Actually, the Spurs have a few advantages on their…
Group H is one of the interesting ones for this week. Although Juventus and Sevilla are more or less sure of their qualification places, they still need to figure out who will win the group. While Sevilla has a very hard game against Lyon, Juventus are hosting the weakest team of the group stage, Dinamo Zagreb. A win would ensure first place – can they get it? Juventus vs Dinamo Zagreb – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Juventus 1.12 or 1/8 Draw 10.00 or 9/1 Dinamo 26.00 or 25/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.44 or 4/9 Under 2.70 or 17/10 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.62 or 13/8 No 1.44 or 4/9 Our analysis tells us that Juventus should…
The last day of the Champions League group stage is one of the hardest to predict. Teams are either qualified and have no desire to field their best eleven, or are clinging to the last chance to play European football in spring as well. Sadly for the spectacle of the CL, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified before their direct game and are both sure of their positions in the group. Bayer vs Monaco – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Bayer 1.80 or 4/5 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Monaco 4.75 or 15/4 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.75 or 3/4 Under 2.05 or 21/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.70 or 7/10 No 2.05 or 21/20 Monaco is one…
Group F of the Champions League features some very interesting games this week. We can see a clash between Dortmund and Real Madrid, which will decide the leader of the group, and a game for 3rd place, between Sporting Lisbon and Legia Warsaw – which is much harder to predict that it looks on paper. Legia Warsaw vs Sporting Lisbon – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Legia 4.60 or 18/5 Draw 3.90 or 29/10 Sporting 1.80 or 4/5 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.65 or 13/20 Under 2.20 or 6/5 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.61 or 8/13 No 2.20 or 6/5 We’re saying it’s hard to predict because Legia has shown they are capable of playing good football, especially…
