Game Info: Wolverhampton v Arsenal


Barclays Premier League (Round 33)

Format: 20-team double round-robin.  3 points for win, 1 point for draw.  Team with highest point total after 38 games wins the title.  In the event of a points tie, winner is determined based on goal differential.  Top three finishers qualify for UEFA Champions League group stage the following season; fourth place qualifies for UCL best-placed playoff stage; fifth-place finisher qualifies for Europa League; bottom three finishers are relegated to a lower division (Npower Championship).
Where: Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton
When: Wednesday, April 11 at 2:45 PM Eastern.
What’s at stake: After defeating a strong Manchester City side Sunday in dramatic fashion, Arsenal (3rd, 61 points) must take care of business at last-place Wolverhampton (20th, 22 points).  As a club which appears destined not to return to England’s top division next season, the Wanderers present Arsenal with a golden opportunity to either consolidate or extend its lead over challengers Chelsea (6th, 57 points), Newcastle (5th, 59 points), and Tottenham (4th, 59 points).  Though the points disparity between the two teams would indicate a comfortable win for the visitors, Arsenal would be foolish to assume an easy result — of the 4 games in the past 12 in which the Gunners have failed to earn a full 3 points, 3 of these games have come against bottom-half opposition (Swansea, Bolton, and Q.P.R.).


Spread: Wolverhampton +1 (+125), Arsenal -1 (-160, favored)
Straight up: Wolverhampton +550, Arsenal -240, draw +370
Over/under: 3 (over -125, under -105)
