Arsenal visit Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday aiming to continue their recent upturn in fortunes under new manager Mikel Arteta.
The Gunners beat Manchester United in the league on New Years’ Day and followed up with a narrow victory over Leeds United in the FA Cup last Monday.
Arteta’s side head to Selhurst Park tenth in the standings, nine points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with 17 games to play this season.
Arsenal are priced at 20/23 to beat Palace and there are likely to be plenty of punters using Bethard bonuses to back them at what appears to be a very generous price.
The Eagles are currently ninth in the league table, one point ahead of Arsenal but with a massive injury list to contend with.
Scott Dann, Andros Townsend, Patrick van Aanholt and Jeff Schlupp are amongst a lengthy list of absentees for the home side.
With Joel Ward, Mamadou Sakho, Max Meyer, Jairo Riedewald also ruled out and Luka Milivojevic, manager Roy Hodgson has a tough job on his hands.
By contrast, only Calum Chambers and Kieran Tierney are certain to miss out for the Gunners as they bid to make it three wins in a row in all competitions.
Despite the victory over Leeds it is fair to say that Arsenal were less than impressive, particularly during the first half of the game.
Having performed well against Man Utd, they produced a sloppy display against the Championship side who had far more of the play before the break.
Arteta had plenty of harsh words to say to his players at half-time and they certainly stepped things as they booked their place in the fourth round of the cup.
However, the Gunners can ill-afford a repeat performance this weekend and Arteta can be expected to have them fired up from the first whistle.
They will need to improve on their recent record against Palace, having failed to beat them in their last three meetings.
Palace took four points off Arsenal last term and secured a 2-2 draw when they met earlier this season at the Emirates Stadium.
There are generally goals when these two sides meet, with the last goalless encounter coming in an FA Cup tie back in February 1998.
The last six games have generated 26 goals, making the odds of 19/10 for over 3.5 goals in the match look extremely attractive.
With Palace struggling with injuries Arsenal will fancy their chances of picking up three points and a small interest in a 3-1 scoreline at odds of 14/1 could also pay dividends.
