Bet of the day: Arsenal to win both halves in FA Cup clash against Preston
Lee Gormley | 7 January 2017
Coral’s bet of the day
- Arsenal are unbeaten in three outings before this clash
- Preston have only won once in their previous three games
- The visitors have not lost at Preston since 1960
- Grayson’s men have prevailed in just one of last six home matches
- Wenger’s Gunners sit fifth in Premier League, Preston are 11th in Championship
Arsenal to win both halves 9/4
The FA Cup action continues throughout today and Coral’s latest bet of the day comes from the promising encounter between Championship outfit Preston North End and Premier League contenders Arsenal.
In this tasty tussle at Deepdale this evening, Arsenal can be backed at 9/4 to win both halves on their travels in an FA Cup matchday special, with a max stake of £20.
Arsene Wenger’s Gunners have looked like potential top-flight title contenders this current campaign but will focus their immediate attentions towards overcoming Preston and progressing past the third round.
So, read on to find out why exactly this bet of the day for January 7th should come off in the day’s late kick-off.
Gunners to down Preston in both halves
The recent form is a strong indicator of how proceedings could go at Deepdale, with the travelling Londoners taking to the pitch on the back of three games unbeaten, while Preston have prevailed just once in their previous three outings.
Arsenal are also boosted by the fact they have not lost at this stadium since 1960, while Simon Grayson’s hosts are on a poor run of form on home soil.
Having this encounter on their own turf won’t be much of a boost as Preston have triumphed only once in their previous six outings at Deepdale, with Arsenal set to capitalise on that inconsistent streak.
So, make sure to back Arsenal to win both halves in this FA Cup matchday special ahead of their visit to face 11th placed Championship side Preston.
