Arsenal are unexpectedly leading the charge in the 2022/23 Premier League season and are now daring to dream of ending a near two-decade wait for English top-flight glory. Get the latest Arsenal betting odds here.
Arsenal to win Premier League odds
The Gunners are riding the crest of a wave under Mikel Arteta in 2022/23, a scenario poles apart from their infamous three-game capitulation at the start of last season, in which the north Londoners found themselves propping up the table on matchday three. A little over 12 months on, and they are the pace-setters.
Or, they were. Arsenal are still top of the league at the time of writing after a 4-2 win over Aston Villa, but there have been some shaky moments in 2023. January was a tough month on paper with Arsenal facing Newcastle, Tottenham and Manchester United, but the Gunners came through that run with seven points, only dropping points against the Magpies.
February, though, almost nullified that run of results. It started with a 1-0 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park which was then followed up by a 1-1 draw with Brentford. Then came the big one against Manchester City.
The first meeting between these two sides this season, Man City took a 3-1 win away from the Emirates to move above Arsenal on goal difference. But Arsenal do have a game in hand over the Citizens and came from behind to beat Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon, thanks to two very late goals, showing they are still very much in the title race.
And they’re still in control of their own destiny, with Oleksandr Zinchenko hoping Arsenal take belief from the win.
“From this game I would like to say two things. First we took an unbelievable lesson for all of us that we need to believe until the very end,” he told BT Sport.
“Like I said in the past, this group has such amazing people, can achieve everything they want. If we are going to keep fighting and keep believing. The reaction from all of us in the second half is a perfect way to go.”
However, they are now second favourites at 11/8 with Sky Bet to win the Premier League.

Arsenal top four finish odds
Of course, if a genuine title bid proves too tall a mountain to scale in the second half of the season, then Arsenal fans certainly wouldn’t turn their noses up at a top-four finish. There was a time when a fourth-placed position was used as a stick to beat Arsene Wenger with; now, fans would bite your hand off for a place in that coveted quartet.
Incredibly, it’s now been eight years since Arsenal last finished in the top four. What was once a bone of contention among some fans frustrated at the lack of a title bid, has become the great white whale of their modern existence. Arteta, though, has them 15 points above fifth-placed Spurs.
Of course, the season is a long innings and Arsenal will have to juggle a congested second-half-of-the-campaign calendar with the Europa League soon returning. It will not only be a test of skill and talent, must also resolve, mental fortitude and resilience.

Arsenal odds to win the Europa League
Arteta was keen to make a fast start in both the Premier League and in Europe, and that’s exactly what his side produced in autumn. Of course, if Arsenal completely collapse in the Premier League and finish outside the top four — which would take a monumental nosedive — then the Europa League represents a chance to gain a backdoor entrance to the Champions League.
The Gunners famously reached the 2019/20 Europa League final under Unai Emery, but came up short to Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea in an all-London clash in Baku, Azerbaijan. Arteta would relish the chance to win continental silverware for the Gunners and further enhance his blossoming legacy at the Emirates.

Other Arsenal odds
There are plenty of other odds available for the Gunners, and Sky Bet have a pretty expansive market on Arsenal-specific odds. Eddie Nketiah was in sensational since coming in for the injured Gabriel Jesus, scoring four goals in five games, including a brace against Man Utd. You can get 10/1 on him bagging 15 goals, Arsenal finishing in the top four, and Spurs finishing outside the top four – though they have lengthened owing to a brief barren run. You can also get 7/2 on standout star Martin Odegaard winning the PFA Player of the Year for 2022/23.
