Vermaelen to net a goal for Arsenal against Fulham?

Due to their demolition jobs on Everton, Portsmouth and Wigan, Arsenal have reportedly helped Sporting Index spread punters to pocket £500,000 already this season. Wenger’s charges must make the short trip across London to Craven Cottage where buyers of the Gunners’ supremacy spread will hope that Fulham feel the full force of Arsenal’s flowing-football wrecking ball.

Since the Cottagers moved back into the top flight the teams have met on sixteen occasions, and, unsurprisingly to buyers of Arsenal’s win index spread, the north Londoners have won 12 times. Though more encouragingly for sellers of the visitors’ spread Fulham have won two of the last three Gunners matches they have hosted.

Spread punters who regularly like a wager on the player goal markets may be surprised to see Thomas Vermaelen leading Van Persie, Eduardo and Fabregas as Arsenal’s current top scorer. Buyers of his goal minutes spread against the Roy Hodgson’s side will hope for more from the classy Belgian who bagged a brace for a 74 minute make-up against Wigan.

For other interesting football spread bets plenty of Sporting Index punters love to play the bookings index markets. Interestingly, the three most recent head-to-heads have produced just two bookings but before punters rush to sell the spread perhaps they would be wise to consider the three prior matches. They averaged a bookings index spread make-up of 75, including a match at Craven Cottage three years ago which saw nine yellow cards and an early bath for Philippe Senderos.
