Even though Fulham looked to be safely encamped mid-table for another season (they’re 300/1 to go down) but they can still make a huge impact on the Champions League places which means that when they host Arsenal on Saturday you can make plenty of money if you follow our soccer picks.
Enough with the hyperbole… WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?
Arsenal had the best of the game against Fulham, but they couldn't convert chances into goals and a draw into a win. I think this is probably nothing more than a blip in Arsenal's push for Champions League qualification. Still, a draw in a six pointer probably works at the approximately 2 points, (metaphorically).
Wednesday night sees Fulham face Chelsea, and the Cottagers could do Arsenal a huge favour by taking points off the Blues, however I think Chelsea have got too much to play for and Fulham aren't that impressive, so I expect Chelsea to close the gap on Arsenal.
Everyone is expecting Arsenal to win this game not least because Fulham are on a two match winless run (one team that has performed exactly as predicted in those last two matches), but it's worth remembering that out of the last four matches between these two sides Fulham have been the only one to record a victory. The last meeting was a stonking 3-3 draw back in November (but that score is offered up at 80/1 this time round) and in January 2012 Fulham beat Arsenal 2-1. A repeat of that victory before Fulham is available at 16/1. Three of the last four games between these two sides have ended drawn, the aforementioned 3-3, 1-1 and 2-2 and repeats of those scores are available at soccer odds of 8/1 and 18/1 respectively.
And if you that's a little bit confusing feed you should know that the last time Arsenal beat Fulham was back in December 20 10, by a 2-1 score which is offered up at 7/1 this time.

It pays to be a winner
Any Arsenal victory is available at 8/11 while a surprise Fulham victory is at 7/2 and a draw which would frustrate Arsenal no end is at 11/4. Personally think a draw is the best Fulham can hope for, but as Tuesday night’s game was the first time at Arsenal had phone fails to find back that what seems like ages don't bet on repeat of that 0-0 school even at odds of 14/1).
Your Humble Handicapper is going for an Arsenal win and isn't going even going to give Fulham the benefit of a consolation goal. If you're going for a correct score spread your butt around on 1-0, 2-0 and even 3-0 and 7/1, 9/1 and 18/1 respectively but don't bet on Arsenal leaving Craven Cottage empty-handed.
