Bet builder December 11: Arsenal vs Southampton

Planet Sport tipster Pete Farries selects his Saturday afternoon Betfair bet builder from the 3pm game between Arsenal and Southampton

My first selection is Arsenal to win (13/20). Looks pretty obvious this really, only Chelsea have won at Arsenal so far this season, with them winning three of the last four at home too.

STAT: Arsenal haven't lost a home league match to Southampton in the Premier League era

Even though they've lost to both Man Utd and Everton in the last two, there's been more than an element of bad luck in both of those losses. Southampton aren't playing well away from home, they were battered at Liverpool. I can't see how Arsenal don't get the win.

The second selection is Over 2.5 goals (5/6). Arsenal's games this season have featured an average of 2.67 goals per game.

STAT: Liverpool top that stat in the Premier League, with their matches averaging 3.73 goals a match. Wolves average the lowest, with 1.67

We've mentioned how Arsenal are scoring and conceding, and the same can be said for The Saints.

The final selection is goal to be scored in both halves, yes (8/13).

STAT: Arsenal have a perfect 50/50 split of their 18 league goals across the first and second halves of matches so far.

This has been landing in recent Arsenal games, particularly of late, and Southampton start strong and finish weak quite a bit.
