BATE v Arsenal Predictions

Arsenal to win: It’s hard to judge games like this because the Gunners may not be at full strength. It may just be worth settling on the favourites to come away with a clean sheet victory at 6/4 odds as it may be low-key* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 11th, 2019 at 11:18 p.m.)
