Leeds knack of bagging away to top six can add to Gunners value
Arsenal have won 14 of their last 17 EPL matches at the Emirates and have the Premier League’s best home record this term, so it’s little surprise to seem them a short price to best Leeds.
However only six sides have conceded more home goals than the Gunners in the division this season and they’ve now shut out just two of their last 10 visitors across all competitions.
That looks like an open invitation for the Whites to help us find value in backing Mikel Arteta’s men. Leeds put four past Wolves at Molineux and have been finding the net away to the big sides all season – scoring two at Anfield and Old Trafford and putting three past Spurs in north London.
Best bet: Arsenal to beat Leeds and both teams to score @ 17/10” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>Arsenal to beat Leeds and both teams to score @ 17/10
Red hot Tykes solid as Oak at home to relegation strugglers
Barnsley may have lost for the first time in 13 games away to Exeter last time out but the return to Oakwell, where they’ve won 11 of their last 12 games in league and cup, can bring about an instant return to winning ways.
Michael Duff’s men have won by two goals or more in each of their last six home league games, which is impressive even before you consider that Sheffield Wednesday, Plymouth and Derby (first second and sixth in the League One standings) were among their victims in that sequence.
Morecambe are without a victory in seven outings and should make the ideal dance partners for a home comfortable victory having lost 13 of their 19 away games in the division this term.

Posh look banker material with freefalling U’s the visitors
Oxford beat Ipswich 2-1 at the Kassam Stadium on January 21st but what could have been a confidence building catalyst for a run up the table preceded a run of nine losses and two draws in their next 11 games.
Peterborough are far from the division’s most consistent side but they are blowing hot at present and sit on the edge of the playoffs after scoring 10 times in three successive wins, culminating in a 2-0 win over the Derby last time out.
They should be too strong for their out of sorts visitors here, with Posh’s League One top goal scorer Jonson Clarke-Harris sure to be licking his lips.

Northampton tend to turn it on for the top sides at Sixfields
The second-placed Cobblers host third-placed Stevenage in the game of the weekend in League Two. Such games are seldom the type for confident selections but Northampton have an exceptional record against the top sides in the division at Sixfields.
They’ve already hosted five of other seven sides that currently occupy the top eight in the table beating all bar one of them. Leyton Orient, Carlisle, Stockport and Mansfield have all been sent packing pointless.
Stevenage’s modest road form has stopped them from running away with the division this term and they currently sit just 11th in the League Two away table. They’ll find it hard to improve that tally against hosts that have shipped just one goal across their last seven home games.
Best bet: Northampton to beat Stevenage @ 6/4
