Brighton vs. Arsenal - Premier League Soccer Betting Odds

For the first time in over 10 years, there are three teams within three points of one another at the top of the table with just eight matches remaining. Time to buckle up. This weekend there are crucial games for Liverpool, Manchester City, and Arsenal as they jockey for position in the title race. On Saturday, the Gunners will look to stay ahead of City (who play earlier in the day) on a visit down south to Brighton & Hove Albion. 

Highlights

  • Arsenal are in their best form of the season while Brighton have struggled of late
  • Arsenal have not lost a PL game yet in the 2024 calendar year
  • Martin Odegaard has 2 goals and 10 shots over his last 4 Premier League fixtures

Brighton vs. Arsenal Premier League Soccer Betting Odds - April 6

Arsenal currently sit second in the Premier League, two points back of Liverpool. Brighton & Hove Albion, for their part, will be looking to strengthen their position in the top half of the table with points of some sort. Arsenal are still in their best form of the season, as they have yet to lose a PL game in 2024. The news isn’t as good for Brighton, who have won just one of their last five PL matches.

There is perhaps no team in the Premier League that is currently in better form than Arsenal. After a rough finish to the 2023 calendar year when they lost to both West Ham and Fulham, they have gone on a nine-game unbeaten streak that includes a win over Liverpool and a draw at the Etihad against City.

After their cagey 0-0 match with City over the weekend, some believed that the young Gunners would not be ready to go for a mid-week match, but manager Mikel Arteta actually rotated his squad more than he has at any other point this season against Luton Town, and still pulled out a very comfortable 2-0 victory.

Brighton, on the other hand, have been going through one of their roughest patches under manager Robert de Zerbi, who is already talking about leaving the club at the end of the season. On top of the fact that their manager has one foot out the door, Brighton has really struggled over their last 11 matches, winning just two matches, and those wins came against two teams fighting relegation in Nottingham Forest and bottom of the table Sheffield United.

While Arteta rotated like a mad man at mid-week, Brighton are a side that needs to be taken seriously even with their recent run of bad form. While Bukayo Saka may still be carrying a knock, expect Gabriel Martinelli, Declan Rice, and Jorginho to return to Arsenal’s standard starting lineup, which has been on absolute fire since the New Year.

You don’t usually get Arsenal’s moneyline odds this low against a non-Big 6 side, but due to the fact that Brighton has won three of the last five meetings, sports betting sites might be giving them a little too much credit. This isn’t the same Arsenal side that bottled the league last year and lost 4-0 to Brighton during the run in; this is a side that has shut Man City out twice and taken four points from Liverpool.

The moment no longer seems too big for this young squad, and even when they haven’t been at their best offensively in recent games against City and Luton, they were still able to get a result because of their defensive solidity. That will serve them well here against a frisky Brighton side, so expect Arsenal to continue pushing on as Brighton attempts to pick up the pieces of what has been a bit of a disappointing campaign after their epic season in 2022-2023.

Best Bet: Arsenal moneyline (-161)

Arsenal vs. Liverpool Player Goalscorer Betting Odds

PlayerAnytime Scorer Odds
Bukayo Saka (ARS)+170
Kai Havertz (ARS)+175
Leandro Trossard (ARS)+185

Martin Odegaard (ARS)+333
Evan Ferguson (BRI)+350

Saka might not even play, so stay away from his prop, but the other members of Arsenal’s front four—Martin Odegaard, Kai Havertz, and Gabriel Martinelli—should be out there and firing.

Odegaard, in particular, has fancied a goal of late, scoring in two of his last four Premier League games, and throwing 10 shots and 1.1 xG at the opposition over that span. At +333, Odegaard is the best value, but Martinelli might be the safest bet, as he has looked very spry in two sub appearances since returning from a foot injury.

The Brazilian youngster will see a lot more of the ball down the left side if Saka doesn’t play, so if the Hale End does indeed sit out again, Martinelli’s +210 odds on the top betting apps right now would look awfully good.

Best Bet: Martin Odegaard anytime scorer (+333)/Gabriel Martinelli anytime scorer (+210)
