Arsenal attempt to bounce back at home to Sunderland, can they do it? Join in for our soccer odds breakdown and find out the best soccer picks for this match.

Odds Overview
Last weekend Arsenal let soccer odds backers down yet again when they were held to a 1-1 draw against Norwich at Carrow Road, but I can't seem them letting favorite backers down again at The Emirates on Saturday when they host strugglers Sunderland. Arsene Wenger's side have had a November to forget picking up more injuries than points, and without a win in their last three Premier League matches, many will want to avoid the home side at a general 1.25. Even though I believe they will win, they won't be carrying a penny of my money at those prices. This Gunners' will be without striker Alexis Sanchez who misses this clash with a hamstring injury, but that shouldn't be a problem against a Sunderland side who have just one win away from the Stadium of Light all season.

The visitors are a massive 15.0 with at BetVictor for the win and their supporters will be encouraged by their good recent form and their excellent record at The Emirates.


The Game
Sam Allardyce has taken over at the Stadium of Light and they look an entirely different side especially defensively since the 6-2 hammering they took at Everton. Since that match, The Black Cats have only conceded the one goal in their last three matches and have won their last two games to nil, but keeping the Gunners' out will be a tall order. In the last five visits to north London, Sunderland have only made the long trip back to Wearside as a losing team on just two occasions and they will come here to frustrate the life out of their more illustrious opponents. The game plan will be to park the red and white bus and hope to get a 0-0 draw which they've achieved in two of the last four seasons, and even though I do believe that the Gunners' will finally break them down, I really couldn't be getting involved in them at the prices on offer.

The best soccer pick in this one is without question to back the match to see under 2.5 which is a huge price at 2.62 with William Hill. Arsenal are struggling for goals at present with two of their last three Premier Leagues matches rewarding under backers and with Alexis missing, Oliver Giroud not the same player since his return after the atrocities in Paris and Joel Campbell not a top notch Premier League striker, where are the goals going to come from for the home side? We all know what the visitors are going to do, they are going to stick 10 men behind the ball and hope for the best and with two of their last four visits to the Emirates resulting in 0-0 draws they will be confident they can pull it off again.
