Paul Merson gives his betting tips ahead of Arsenal v Crystal Palace for Winner Sports [Video]

Paul Merson has been giving his betting tips for the match between Arsenal and Crystal Palace coming up on the opening weekend of the Premier League.

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson reckons that it will be a tighter game than anticipated and that Palace will largely contain the home side on their visit to the Emirates.

Merson says that Arsenal may only win by a solitary goal and that goal mightn’t come until the second half with a tip being to take the draw at half-time and the Arsenal win at full-time.

You can special offers on the game here but remember that any bets you stick on Palace should be done with caution after the departure of their manager Tony Pulis.
