Arsenal v Bodo/Glimt Betting Tips & Predictions

Arsenal are 2/9 favourites for the visit of Bodo/Glimt in Europa League Group A on Thursday night.

Bodo/Glimt are top of the section, with Arsenal and PSV Eindhoven only playing one match apiece due to their postponement before the international break.

It is four points from two matches for Bodo/Glimt, who come into this match after hammering Lillestrom 4-1 at the weekend.

Arsenal are full of confidence, sitting top of the Premier League table having just beaten Tottenham in an entertaining north London derby last weekend.

Total Home Goals: Over 2.5 

3/4 (Sporting Index)

At such a short price to win the match, bettors should look elsewhere for value.

One worthwhile wager is over 2.5 home goalss – Arsenal have scored or three or more in three of their last four fixture. Bodo/Glimt have leaked goals, not keeping a clean sheet in their last six, as well as conceding four in the second leg to Dinamo Zagreb.

Mikel Arteta will likely leave out some of the bigger names, with Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard expected to rest ahead of this weekend’s clash with Liverpool.

There’s still enough attacking talent to score three times, though.

Both Teams To Score: Yes

20/23 (Betfair)

You have to go all the way back to a Champions League qualifying tie with Linfield in July for the last time Bodo/Glimt failed to score. That’s 17 matches in all competitions. While those opponents have not been of Arsenal’s calibre, this is clearly a team which can create chances.

For all their winning, Arsenal have kept a lone clean sheet in six matches in all competitions. With major changes expected to the XI which beat Spurs, the defence could be unsettled. 

Total Cards: Under 3.5 

3/4 (Betway)

Arsenal didn’t receive a card in their only Europa League match. The Gunners are averaging under two cards per match in the Premier League, too.

Bodo/Glimt have just four cautions across two fixtures in the Europa League, and had six in eight Champions League qualifiers. 

This cards line might seem low, but neither of these teams tend to end up in the referee’s all that often.
