ARSENAL take on newly-promoted Brentford in the first Premier League game of the season tonight.
Ahead of the 8pm kick-off, SunSport are on hand with an odds preview, our prediction and how you can claim up to £180 in free bets.
The Gunners are unsurprisingly odds-on favourite at 17/20 while the Bees are priced at 3/1 to cause an opening day upset in the London Derby.
This is Brentford’s first top top flight game since 1947 and ended their pre-season with a win over Valencia in their opening game.
While the Gunners were put to the test in their final pre-season game as they lost 1-0 to their bitter North London rivals Tottenham on Sunday.
We suspect a tight game at Brentford’s new stadium but we believe Arsenal will edge the game 2-1, with Alexandre Lacazette on the scoresheet.
