Brit Bets: Arsenal and Everton in Europa League action on Thursday

| 06.12.2017

Arsenal and Everton are going in opposite directions as far as the Europa League is concerned.

The Gunners are safely through to the last-32 while the Toffees will finish either third or fourth in their group.

On Thursday night, both clubs will be looking to conclude the group stages on a high.

Everton travel to Apollon Limassol in Group E, while Arsenal host BATE Borisov in Group H.

We’ve put together a selection of the best bets for the Premier League pair on Thursday night.

Apollon Limassol v Everton (18:00 KO)

Everton’s Europa League misery looks set to continue in Cyprus.

Manager Sam Allardyce is reportedly set to miss the game to prepare properly for Sunday’s derby game with Liverpool.

That means Craig Shakespeare will take charge of what is expected to be a youthful Blues side away at Apollon.

As a result, the hosts are considered the 5/4 favourites for the match. The Toffees are 21/10 to claim a maiden Europa League win, while the draw is 12/5.

If the visitors are to collect three points, they’ll be relying on the youngsters to do the business.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is 2/1 to score Anytime, although we like the look of Ademola Lookman at 13/5.

The 20-year-old has looked dangerous in him limited appearances so far and looks set to start in Cyprus.

Arsenal v BATE Borisov (20:05 KO)

The Gunners are unbeaten at home in the Europa League and should continue that run against BATE.

Wenger’s men have won three of their five games in the competition and are 4/9 to make that four from six. You can get the visitors at 6/1, with the draw priced at 18/5.

In the reverse fixture in Belarus, there were plenty of goals as Arsenal rode out 4-2 winners.

We’re expecting fireworks again at the Emirates, which makes Both Teams to Score at 4/6 the one to be on.

You can double up on that market and get 7/4 about Arsenal to Win and Both Teams to Score.

And with progression already assured, Wenger could decide to change things up.

That could mean some more game time for Eddie Nketiah.

The youngster bagged a brace against Norwich City in the Carabao Cup and is 23/20 to score anytime against BATE.
