Arsenal visit West Brom in what seems, based on betting odds, to be a one-sided game. Let's review recent rends for this game and choose some soccer picks for you to bet on this weekend.

West Bromwich vs. Arsenal
There is one golden rule in Premier League soccer betting that I try to keep to as much as I possibly can, and that is to never back too many odds-on favourites away from home.

This Saturday the rule-book goes out of the window when Arsenal travel to the west midlands to take on West Brom, as it's impossible to see anything other than a comprehensive victory for the Londoners.

The Gunners' are flying in the Premier League so far this season, and despite a wholehost of injuries, are up to second in the table separated only by a one goal difference with Man City and, say it quietly, but this could be Arsenal's year.

They arrive in this match in fantastic domestic form without a defeat in the last two months since they lost 2-0 at Stamford Bridge to Chelsea, and even at the short price of 1.50 in the betting odds (which is available with most sportsbooks), it's just impossible to oppose them against a side that they always have the beating of in recent meetings.

The last time "The Baggies" did win against Arsenal at the Hawthorne's was way back in 2005 and they just can't even be considered for a bet to end that unwanted record this weekend, even at what does look tempting odds of 7.50 which is available at BetVictor.

Tony Pulis' side are still big contenders for Premier League relegation and they should be considered in that market at the 6.50 with BWin.
Pulis seems to be a man under a bit of pressure, and he's certainly lost large sections of the West Brom faith with the style of soccer his side play and with five defeats in their last seven matches, the last team that they want to be facing is a rampant Arsenal.

The Baggies have only won four matches this season and  every one of those successes was by a 1-0 margin, and if they concede, they always lose, and they will certainly concede in this one.


Recent Trends
Arsene Wenger's side have now scored a staggering 11 goals in their last three away Premier League matches, and with key men Hugo Bellerin and Aaron Ramsey available again from injury, they are not only a confident selection to win this match, but to also do win it in some style, and if odds of 1.50 in the 90-minute betting don't tempt you, then the visitors -1 goal at 11/13 with BetVictor on the Asian handicap should really get us excited.

West Brom have now conceded three goals in four of their six matches against Man City, Chelsea, Everton and Leicester, and with Arsenal scoring three in their last two away matches, as well, this really looks as though it's going to be rather one-sided, and the visitors are a very confident choice to show their difference in class with a comprehensive success.

Arsenal boast an impressive 100 per cent winning record away from home in the Premier League this so far season, and have comfortably covered the handicap in their last three matches, and another easy afternoon for the Wenger Boys looks assured in a fixture that they always win.
