It never hurts to start our research early, and that's exactly what we'll do before placing our final soccer picks for this weekend's match between Leicester City and Arsenal. Who do we like?

Odds Overview
Looking to get an early jump on the soccer odds? As of now, we see Arsenal favored in the -115 to -125 range depending on the sportsbook, which on the surface is a very appealing number. If you think Leicester will get the job done and continue their excellent start to the campaign, the hosts can be backed at anywhere from +300 to +350, with a draw at roughly +275.


Leicester City
You probably would have called us crazy if we told you Leicester would be in fourth place in the Premier League after six matches, but that's exactly where we stand.

The Foxes, amazingly enough, have still yet to lose a match in league play this season, having beaten Sunderland, West Ham and Aston Villa while drawing with Tottenham, Bournemouth and Stoke City. Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy have been incredibly dangerous, with the former already recording five goals and three assists and Vardy chipping in with four goals himself. They'll take on West Ham in cup play during the week for this weekend's home clash with Arsenal.


The Gunners are hoping a fresh week will bring with it a change in fortunes. They just endured a nightmarish seven days in which they lost to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League before falling to Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge over the weekend.

Arsenal was unfortunate not to have a few decisions go their way against the Blues and ended up playing with nine men to close out the match. Arsene Wenger's men will try to recover some pride, with two tough fixtures awaiting them; they'll first play Tottenham in the Capital One Cup and then will head to King Power Stadium.


Premier League Pick
So, who do we like with our soccer picks?

As impressive as the Foxes have been early on, we have to take the more talented outfit and side with Arsenal to bounce back after last weekend's rough defeat. It's tough to envision the Gunners losing a third straight match, in spite of the fact they'll be away from home, and their quality should prove too much for the hosts at the end of the day.

Predicted Final Score: Leicester City 1 Arsenal 2
