@Matkafee's Arsenal vs Bournemouth EPL Prediction & Pick - 8/20

Matt Aka @Matkafee | @matkafee

Arsenal @ Bournemouth - 12:30PM ET

Bournemouth marked their return to the Premier League with an impressive two-nil win over Aston Villa. As with most newly promoted clubs, their home form will be paramount. That’s why Scott Parker won’t be troubled by his side’s four-nil defeat champions Manchester City last week. Even the most optimistic of Cherries supporters wouldn’t of expected to get anything from that match. Their survival in the Premier League will be determined by how they perform against the bottom half and by grabbing points whenever they can at home.

Arsenal are flying high after back to back wins. Entering the weekend the Gunners sit second in the table and there is a sense around the club that a corner has finally been turned. I wont bore you writing about how good the summer recruitment has been. Everyone knows Gabriel Jesus has hit the ground running and looks like a contender for the Premier League Golden Boot. I told you I’d play him anytime at plus money so if you find him at +110 or better I recommend firing away.

It’s tempting to look at the City score line and think this match will be another walkover. As a lifelong Gooner I’m warning everyone to take a deep breath. Mikel Arteta’s project is progressing nicely and there’s plenty to like about this team but I’m not prepared to assume victory in road matches. It’s also been 18 years since Arsenal won their first three Premier League fixtures. I expect a determined performance from Bournemouth today so I’m staying away from any sides or totals. Give me the Jesus goal at +110 and if the three points come along too that would be icing on the cake.

Matt's Pick

Gabriel Jesus to score anytime +110
