The leaders in the current standings of the English Premier League Arsenal will meet Fulham in their match of the 22nd round of the championship. The hosts from Arsenal will go into this match with an increased confidence after a series of four consecutive wins and seven in their last ten league games. In turn, Fulham has just three wins and seven losses, which makes their stay in the Premier League more uncertain than ever.
Just a single point divides Fulham from the relegation zone and a visit to the leaders in the current standings is hardly the most suitable match at this time.
The bookies also comply with the difference in the classes between the two teams and put Arsenal as expected in the role of a strong favorite to win this match.

Bet365′s proposals for this match is 1.22 for an Arsenal’s win, a surprising win for Fulham will give odds of 12 and at 6 is estimated the draw. William Hill gives 1.25 for Arsenal, 11 for Fulham and 6 for the draw. At bet-at-home the odds are similar like on the other two bookies. A home win for Arsenal is estimated at 1.2, the draw in the match is offered on 6.5 and an eventual victory for Fulham is estimated at 12.
However, I think that far more interesting are the suggestions of the bookies for Asian Handicap. There, the even odds we can get with a proposal for Arsenal to win with -2.

Given the difficulties that Arsenal showed when they have to play against a very defensive team like in the match against Cardiff, a bet for Fulham with +2 seems more than justified. The match with Cardiff ended with an Arsenal’s victory with 2-0, a result, which will refund the stake, but both goals were scored late in the game, which can’t always happen.
The best odds for such bet come from bet365, where the coefficient is 1.83, which will be my bet for this match.
