Burnley vs Arsenal Prediction
Both teams to score: NO @ 19/20 - BET NOW
The last two matches between Burnley and Arsenal in the Premier League finished with both teams not scoring goals. Burnley kept clean sheets in those two matches versus the Gunners. It will be difficult for Burnley to claim a third straight clean sheet against an Arsenal team preparing for a Europe League last 16 first leg match the following Thursday. Three of Arsenal’s last six games saw both teams not score goals.
Under 2.5 goals scored @10/11 - BET NOW

Alexandre Lacazette is coming off of a goal against Leicester City, helping Arsenal to a 3-1 win. It appears Lacazette will leave the club in the summer as a free agent. Arteta has failed to play Lacazette consistently since taking over, yet the striker has played well when given the chance.

The Frenchman leads Arsenal in goals despite teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang getting bigger headlines and a larger contract earlier this season.
Arsenal should claim a second straight win against a pluck Burnley team. The Clarets have been good against Arsenal in recent games, but the Gunners should put an end to that winless streak. Arsenal should get a win and go into next week’s match versus Olympiakos in good form.
