Final Betting Analysis: PSV Eindhoven at Arsenal
A Europa League title is nice, but we shouldn’t make a mistake and believe Arsenal will be all out in this match. The Gunners want to win the Premier League.
A Europa League title would be icing on the EPL cake. On Sunday, Arsenal has a big Premier matchup against Southampton.
The reason that’s important is because the Gunners must beat Southampton to continue to lead Man City and Tottenham on the Premier standings.
Arsenal has 27 points. The Sky Blues, who remain the low-odds chalk to win the Premier, and the Hotspur each have 23 points.
Why bring up Arsenal’s Premier League standing? Again, a Europa League title is nice, but the Gunners won’t put it all on the line versus an Eindhoven side, which means the underdogs in this match might be catching the Gunners at the perfect time.
Eindhoven is at the peak of their form. PSV has won 4 straight and most of the wins haven’t been close. Eindhoven would love to get a jump on the Gunners in the aggregate. Not only that, but the odds make PSV an overlay. Backing Eindhoven to pull off the upset win makes sense.
