Arsenal V Chelsea: Where Is The Betting Value In This London Derby?

We take a look at where there might be betting value in this clash between two great rivals
10:01, 02 May 2023

On Tuesday night, Arsenal welcome rivals Chelsea to the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League and both teams are desperate for a win, with the Gunners needing to find a way to keep up with Manchester City in the title race.

City have two games in hand on Arsenal and after beating the Gunners last week, momentum is with the reigning champions. Mikel Arteta’s side are four games without a win in the league and they need to start winning soon to have any chance of stealing City’s crown.

Chelsea head into the game still searching for their first win under Frank Lampard and performances continue to be hugely underwhelming and they too are crying out for a victory to try and end this season with some positivity. 

We take a look at where the betting value in this match is. 


Arsenal: 3/5, Draw: 3/1, Chelsea: 4/1


A minimum of four goals have been scored in Arsenal’s last five league matches and a minimum of two goals have been scored in Chelsea’s last four matches in all competitions. Over 3.5 goals is priced at 9/4

Chelsea haven’t won a Premier League game since 11 March, when they beat Leicester City 3-1 at the King Power Stadium, whereas Arsenal are winless in their last four league outings. The Gunners have won and both teams have scored in three of their last four matches at the Emirates in the top flight. Arsenal to win and BTTS is valued at 12/5

Four of Arsenal’s last five home victories have been wins with four or more goals. Arsenal to win and over 3.5 goals is 18/5.

Chelsea have failed to score in six of their last seven games in all competitions. Only Everton (25), Southampton (27), Nottingham Forest and Leicester City (29) have scored less goals in the league than Chelsea this year. Arsenal to win to nil is 7/4 and under 0.5 Chelsea goals is 11/8.
