Brentford vs. Arsenal Picks

Brentford vs. Arsenal ATS Pick

Brentford +0.25 (+140) ★★★

While the Bees may have lost one game to Fulham, it was by a single goal, and both of their draws this season were 1-1 results. Brentford have scored in every single contest they’ve played, including a massive 5-2 victory over Leeds United on Matchday 6.

The Bees took down Manchester United 4-0. An improved Man U side later became the only team this season to be successful in defeating Arsenal this season. Arsenal have struggled with conceding goals this year. They've conceded seven tallies and held clean sheets against only Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.

With Brentford having home-field advantage – reminiscent of their 2-0 win over Arsenal in their first game newly promoted in 2021 – the Bees will be looking to keep it close, even though Arsenal has drastically improved their squad since that match.

Brentford vs. Arsenal City O/U Pick

Over 3.5 (+126) ★★★★

Arsenal have multiple scorers in Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard, and Bukayo Saka, but Brentford needs only one man to do the job – striker Ivan Toney.

Toney has recorded five goals and two assists this season, sitting at 0.83 goals per 90 minutes as Brentford have scored 15 goals this season. Toney accounts for a third of them.

Brentford have multiple scorers on the sheet, with Yoane Wissa, Josh Dasilva, and Bryan Mbeumo all netting two goals. Four other players have at one goal for Brentford in club play this season. 

With all the scoring power between the two teams, the Over should hit just like it did in both of these two teams’ last Premier League game.

Brentford vs. Arsenal Prop Pick

Jesus to score and Arsenal to win (+195) ★★★

Jesus has been one of Arsenal’s biggest signings from their summer window, if not their biggest. While he still leads the team at an expected goal rate of 3.3 with three goals and three assists, he hasn’t scored in their last two games, including the Europa League match against Zurich on September 8.

On top of the goal drought, Arsenal needs to get back to winning ways in the Premier League to stay atop the table and gain back their confidence lost against Manchester United. Jesus will look to score against a Brentford team that has allowed nine goals this season. Seven have come in their last four games.
