Brentford vs Arsenal. Brentford are coming in hot after a very successful season in the Championship and they will try to make use of their home ground to take something from this match. However, Arsenal do not have European play this season and will focus on finishing at the top-4 spots of the Premier League. This looks like an Arsenal win but the Over 2.5 Goals offers some better value here.
