Seeley’s Selections – Hull v Arsenal
Hull v Arsenal
Monday night’s live Premier League clash between Hull and Arsenal looks a lot trickier than the BoyleSports odds compilers will have you believe.
The visitors look very short to me at an industry best 3/4 with BoyleSports and many amongst you will be tempted by the carrot tangled by the boys and girls in Dundalk, but I’m not.
Despite Arsenal’s fantastic recent form, I’m not convinced that they are a bet for this one.
The Wenger Boys are now unbeaten in their last nine matches and despite that great run, this is going to be a lot closer than than the odds suggest.
After the weekend’s results Hull have to get something on Monday night and at a massive 9/2 for a much needed win that does look a big price, but one I couldn’t back either.
The problem for Hull backers is that they NEVER beat the Gunners.
Arsenal have won eight of their last nine clashes against the Tigers with the other one a 2-2 draw earlier in the season at the Emirates.
In the last two meetings between the pair both have ended in a draw at 90-minutes and the 13/5 with BoyleSports on another stalemate, well, that looks the best way to play in this one.
Arsenal have certainly held the upper hand in the most recent meetings between the pair, but they haven’t delivered may heavy defeats with the majority of the victories won by just a one goal margin.
I believe this is going to be a tight one again and my best bet in the game is the 23/20 with BoyleSports on the Hull-draw double chance market.
The Tigers were much the better side in the 2-2 draw at the Emirates earlier in the season and they should have beaten them in last years FA Cup final when they threw a 2-0 lead away.
The last couple of meetings between these two has seen goals, but I’m not expecting many on Monday night.
Hull have won their last two matches to nil against Crystal Palace and Liverpool and both victories saw less than 2.5 goals scored; at 4/5 with BoyleSports in this one that is a bet I really like.
I also like the under 1.5 goals which is a bit more of a workmanlike price at the 23/10 with BoyleSports.
The Gunners drew their last match 0-0 with Chelsea and I think this could be another tight one; no goalscorer at 17/2 looks to me a small bit of value in what I believe will be a very tight affair and after the weekend a point will suit both sides.
Hull Double Chance @ 23/20
Draw @ 16/5
Under 2.5 Goals @ 4/5
Under 1.5 Goals @ 23/10
No Goalscorer @ 17/2
