Arsenal look to carry their midweek goalscoring onslaught with them into Premier League action as they host Wolves in the main kickoff timeslot on Saturday.
The Gunners ran riot in Champions League action on Wednesday, blowing out Lens 6-0 with six different goal scorers to avenge their earlier defeat in France. The victory officially confirmed a place in the competition’s knockout stage as a seeded team, easing the European tension until the next phase begins in 2024.
Now, Arsenal can focus on domestic battles as they sit top of the Premier League table, a point ahead of defending champions Man City and two clear of Liverpool and Aston Villa.
Wolves sit 12th in the standings, having their hearts ripped out on a 94th minute penalty by Willian in their 3-2 defeat to Fulham back on Monday. It was just their second defeat since the early EFL Cup exit at the hands of Ipswich Town back in late September.

Arsenal vs Wolves best bet
- Pick: Both teams to score
- Odds: +110 (DraftKings)
While the Gunners should have no problem finding the back of the net, there’s plenty of reason to believe Wolves can strike as well. The mid-table side has not been held off the scoresheet since their season-opening defeat to Manchester United, their only blank of the campaign across all competitions.
Hee-chan Hwang has been in exceptional form, scoring in over half his league appearances this season. With his leadership, Wolves have not backed down from a challenge — in games against top-seven opposition, Wolves have beaten Man City and Tottenham, and drawn with Newcastle and Aston Villa.
Their only defeats to upper echelon teams, coming against Manchester United and Liverpool, both came within the first five matches of the season, and they’ve turned on the jets since then. With the idea that Arsenal could suffer a bit of a regression from their midweek explosion, this is an opportunity for Wolves to pounce.
Arsenal vs Wolves prop bet
- Pick: Boubacar Traore to be booked
- Odds: +130 (DraftKings)
Wolves lead the Premier League in fouls this season, but sadly, the most obvious pick of a Wolves player to be booked, Joao Gomes, is suspended for — get this — yellow card accumulation. Gomes has committed a foul once every 34 minutes this season, the highest rate of any player with at least 500 minutes played in the English top flight.
With Gomes playing on the left side of midfield, he would have been the perfect candidate for a booking, as he would have been shaded towards Bukayo Saka’s flank. So who will step in to replace him?
Why that would be Boubacar Traore, the new summer signing from Metz who has struggled to earn a place in the side. Traore, would you believe, has committed 12 fouls in just 256 minutes played, good for a foul every 21.33 minutes, which leads the Premier League of all players logging at least 200 minutes. He’s the game’s betting favorite for a reason, and we’re riding it.
