Arsenal have done a great job in the Premier League lately and have climbed the standings. They will now have a seemingly easy job on Wednesday when they will host Bournemouth. Bournemouth have not been in good form lately and are win-less in three. But they have been really weak on the road and a loss is in order here.

Spread: Arsenal -1.25
Total: 3 Goals
Arsenal (16-6-5) did not have an easy job in their home match against Southampton on Sunday. They did take an early lead at the 6th minute and were leading by two at the 17th. But their opponents had some great chances to score. Arsenal have now won five of their last seven matches for the Premier League. That run, along with other results, has allowed them to climb to the 4th spot with 53 points. They are one ahead of Manchester United and seven behind Tottenham. Arsenal have been excellent at home so far in the league (11-1-2), losing only in their first match. Moreover, they have five wins, two losses and a draw at home in other competitions.
On the other hand, Bournemouth (10-13-4) are coming off a frustrating 1-1 home draw against Wolves. They took the lead at the 14th minute from the penalty spot but were equalized at the 83rd from another penalty kick. Bournemouth had a chance to take the three points but missed on the third penalty kick of the match at the 85th minute. That draw means that they are now win-less in their last three (0-2-1). Bournemouth are sitting at the 10th spot of the league table with 34 points, 10 points ahead of the relegation zone. They have been rather weak on the road so far (3-10-0), having lost each of their last nine in all competitions.
Arsenal did a solid job when they beat Bournemouth by 2-1 on the road earlier in the season. They have the upper hand in this match-up (5-1-1) and have won all three matches here. Bournemouth conceded at least twice in each of their last eight away losses and only scored three goals in that span.
Arsenal have scored a little over two goals on average at home and this looks like an easy job. The visitors also have a lot of important absences due to injuries. This looks like it’s going to be one of the most solid picks on Wednesday.
