Best bets for VSiN's BetCast: Everton-Arsenal

By Nigel Seeley  (VSiN.com) 

The streak of BetCast unders continued yet again last weekend with the dullest of them all: A terribly boring but very, very profitable 0-0 draw in the Manchester derby between United and City.

Listeners of the BetCast would've cashed on five tickets with in-play advice given on the draw at halftime, draw in 90 minutes, under 1.5 goals, under 2.5 goals and the icing on the cake 0-0 in the match at a monster 12-1.

This week we are hoping to bury that unders curse which has cashed in all but two of this season’s VSiN EPL BetCasts when Everton host Arsenal at Goodison Park, kick-off Saturday 12:30 ET.

The streak of BetCast unders continued yet again last weekend with the dullest of them all: A terribly boring but very, very profitable 0-0 draw in the Manchester derby between United and City.

Listeners of the BetCast would've cashed on five tickets with in-play advice given on the draw at halftime, draw in 90 minutes, under 1.5 goals, under 2.5 goals and the icing on the cake 0-0 in the match at a monster 12-1.

This week we are hoping to bury that unders curse which has cashed in all but two of this season’s VSiN EPL BetCasts when Everton host Arsenal at Goodison Park, kick-off Saturday 12:30 ET.

Usually each week I would do my preview of the BetCast and then give my EPL bet of the weekend, but this week my best bet is in this match and a price that looks wrong!

On the evidence of what we have seen this season, how can Everton be 140 to win this match?

Carlo Ancelotti's side have been one of the surprise packages of the EPL, starting the campaign in red-hot form. After a run of bad injuries, they have understandably hit a poor run of form, but since Richarlison and Rodriguez returned they have gone back to winning ways, and will be full of confidence ahead of this one after impressive wins at home to Chelsea and then at Leicester.

The books have priced this match up on history and reputation rather than what we are witnessing this season and I think they believe that Arsenal legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Viera will walk out for the Gunners on Saturday with them available at just 2-1.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is under huge pressure to get a win with his team in the middle of a hapless winless run of six matches and the Londoners having made their worst start to a season in over 40 years.

Arteta still doesn't know his best starting 11 and their performance data is that off a team in a relegation fight. The stats don't lie, as he is the bookies’ favorite to be the next EPL manager to lose his job and a defeat here at his former club. He could be fired by Christmas. 

The Gunners have had two red cards in their last two matches and central defender Gabriel will miss this match through suspension which makes an already leaky Arsenal defense even more vulnerable. I expect them to concede a couple and hopefully we will go over the 2.5 goal line in a 2-1 Everton which is 9-1. England and Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin can get on the scoresheet and is available at 130 to score in the 90 minutes.

This will be our last BetCast before Christmas, so thank you all for tuning in over the last few months and have a safe and happy holidays.
