Using stats for goal betting is a great way to profit from premiership football.  A team who conceed lots of corners against a team who are good at winning corners and playing in a attack should yield a high goal result.

What have the stats told us this week?

Bolton play Arsenal on Sunday 17th January.  Bolton have lost more games than they have won and tend to conceed higher numbers of corners. Arsenal a pretty good in the goal scoring department so we have a good candidate for a high goal scoring game. Bookmakers tend to offer an over or under 2.5 goal bet. Basically 2 goal and below or 3 goals and above. Have you ever seen half a goal being scored? Thought not!

Here are some figures.

In 66% of Bolton’s games there have been more than 2.5 goals (12 out of 18 games)

As you might expect Arsenal’s figures are higher. 80% of games have gone over 2.5 goals.

Bolton face Arsenal at home. 70% of Boltons home games have gone over 2.5 goals and 70% of Arsenal’s away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Not bad, producing an average of 3.7 goals per game.

With Arsenal only 2 points behind Man United for the second spot this is likely to be a worthy bet. A point of caution could be taken from Bolton’s last game that resulted in a 2:2 draw against hull city. After conceeding so many goals their defence may have been training extra hard. But, lets face it if they conceed two goals against Hull City what chance have they against Eduardo, Samir Nasri and Aaron Ramsey.
