If you bet on the Premier League, you’ll be locked in this weekend. The Premier League title race is heating up down the stretch, and Arsenal are hot on the tails of current leaders Manchester City. With just three games left to play, the Gunners cannot afford any errors, especially in their upcoming match against Brighton.
For the majority of this season, Arsenal had controlled the league table, but a recent poor run of form allowed Manchester City to overtake them for the top spot. City have been on a fine run of winning form, while Arsenal stumbled a little before regaining their winning ways in their last two games.
Currently one point behind City, but having played one more game, Arsenal's margin for error is slim. They need to be perfect for the remainder of the season and hope that Manchester City slips up before it's too late. Let’s take a look at some free soccer picks for the game and our Premier League predictions for this weekend.

On Sunday, Arsenal will be hosting Brighton in the Premier League at the Emirates on Matchday 35. This is a must-win game if they hope to stay in the race for the Premier League title. Brighton, who have won three out of their last five games and are currently in 7th place, suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat to Everton in their previous outing.
The Gunners know what’s at stake, while Brighton are pushing for a spot in Europe for the first time in their history. Since 1901, the Seagulls have never played in a European competition, and a strong finish to the season may be just what they need to accomplish that goal.
Looking at the Arsenal vs Brighton history, Arsenal have won three of the last five, with one draw and one win for Brighton.
Arsenal vs Brighton & Hove Albion Line-ups & Injuries
Arsenal will likely be without both Japanese full back Takehiro Tomiyasu and center back William Saliba for Sunday’s game. Both have been out since mid-March and are vying for a return, but their status for the weekend is currently doubtful.
Brighton are facing somewhat of an injury nightmare right now. Both Adam Lallana and Tariq Lamptey will be out, as well as the likes of Joel Veltman, Jakub Moder and Jeremy Sarmiento.
One name that might now be added to that list is winger Solly March, who has a hamstring injury that’s putting his status for the Arsenal game in doubt.
Arsenal vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction and Picks
Arsenal have found the Emirates to be a fortress this season, and they are looking to exploit Brighton's weakened defense, which allowed five goals from relegation-threatened Everton in their previous game.
The Gunners cannot afford any mistakes in their remaining fixtures if they want to steal the title from the grasp of Man City. Their victory over Newcastle proved that they have the necessary determination to keep pace with the table-topping Citizens.
While Brighton should not be taken lightly, Arsenal's desperation for points will likely ensure they overcome another difficult challenge this weekend.
Arsenal’s form dipped a few games back making them tough to predict when it comes to soccer betting, but they’re back on form and should claim this one.
The Pick: Arsenal Win/Draw/Win (-138)
This season Arsenal went over the 2.5 goals line 24 times and under 11 times, averaging 3.5 goals per game. Brighton, on the other hand, went over 21 times and under 12 times with an average of 3.3 goals per game. When combined, the Arsenal vs Brighton stats average 3.38 goals per game.
Arsenal are currently trailing Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title by one point, with one extra game played. As they enter the final stretch of the season, they must win every remaining game.
This allows for an exciting and high-scoring spectacle. Over the past eight games, only one has had less than three goals, and seven of those eight games had over 3.5 goals.
The absence of key Arsenal defender William Saliba strengthens the bet for over 2.5 goals, so we’ll add that to our Premier League prop bets today.
The Pick: Over 2.5 Goals Scored (-182)
Best English Premier League Bets Today for Arsenal vs Brighton & Hove Albion - Premier League Matchday 35
Arteta will go with an attacking line up and look to dictate the tempo of the game with Jorginho in midfield, who is expected to keep his place after his MOTM performance vs Newcastle.
The Gunners will play on the front foot and look to get an early goal here against a wounded Brighton team. My Premier League score predictions see me leaning towards 3-1 Arsenal, with the Gunners certainly grabbing the first goal.
The Pick: Arsenal to score first (-167)
Arsenal playmaker, Martin Odegaard, has been in excellent scoring form recently, netting four goals in his last four matches for Arsenal. The Gunners' attacking play has found him in promising positions on the edge of the box, resulting in two goals in their recent game against Chelsea.
Given Brighton's injury woes, I believe Odegaard is poised to score again in Sunday's match.
