Crystal Palace host Arsenal in the opening game of the 2022-23 English Premier League.
The hosts in the first official game of the year will try to start with a win knowing that they are the underdogs. Last year Vieira beat the team he captained for many years 3-0 and he would surely like to sit on their bench one day. The 'Eagles' have a high-quality team that scored fifty goals and conceded forty-six in thirty-eight games in the last season.
Compared to that squad, there were not many changes, with the main addition being the midfielder Doucoure who will fill the place of Gallagher who returned to Chelsea. In the six preseason games they played, they scored thirteen goals and conceded eight, with four of them having over 2.5 goals in total.
In contrast, the 'Gunners' finished eighth in the table last season, without a draw in their last seventeen games which shows their competitive approach. They found the back of the net fifty-five times while their opponents scored thirty-nine times.
In the five preparation games they played, they achieved an equal number of victories with four of them confirming the over 2.5 goal showing the great fluency in scoring they have. Of course, the contribution of the newly signed Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City is significant. Undoubtedly, both their victories 6-0 against Sevilla and 4-0 against Chelsea made sense to all football fans.
Taking into account all the above, I expected that the over 2.5 goal alternative would be offered much lower than evens. On the contrary, the set of the odds is pretty balanced so I will stake 3 units at 1.98 odds as I expect some goals here.
|Over / Under 2.5 goals||Over||1.98||3|
