Both Teams To Score Is The Bet When West Brom Host Arsenal

- Arsenal have scored in 17 league games in a row

It is tough to call a winner of this West Brom v Arsenal fixture as the Baggies had done brilliantly to reach the magical 40-point mark but they have lost to Crystal Palace and Everton since then, and there is a danger that Tony Pulis's men are already gearing up for their summer holidays.
They have won seven of their last nine home league matches but their record against the better teams in the top-flight is quite woeful, with the Baggies yet to beat any of the seven teams above them in the table (drawn one, lost eight).
Furthermore, West Brom have won just one of their past thirteen meetings with Arsenal in all competitions (drawn three, lost nine), although the Gunners make little appeal at odds-on for this match (3/4 with Sky Bet).
Both Teams To Score
Arsenal start the day in fifth place, five points adrift of the top-four but with two games in hand on Liverpool, and their season has followed a familiar pattern as a run of five defeats from eight games has left them with only a top-four finish and the FA Cup to focus on.
Arsene Wenger is coming under increasing pressure but his side rarely lose these types of matches as they have lost to just one side currently sitting outside of the top-seven in the table (won fourteen, drawn three).
Both teams have scored in eleven of those eighteen meetings with 'lesser' sides and both teams to score looks like a very decent option for Saturday (4/5 with Betfred).
Indeed, Arsenal have scored in all twelve of their away league matches, with both teams scoring in 77%, and both teams have found the net in seven of the last eight meetings between West Brom and Arsenal at The Hawthorns.
Olivier Giroud could be the man to strike for Arsenal as he bids for a fourth career goal against the Baggies and the Frenchman has scored eight of his twelve goals away from The Emirates, including four in his last six on the road. Bet Victor go 17/5 for Giroud to score on Saturday.
