Arsenal v Fulham betting: are they relying too much on Theo Walcott?

Arsenal play host to Fulham this weekend, and are  1.53 with Betfred and Paddy Power to secure all three points.
The stats are certainly in their favour, as Fulham have never won at Emirates Stadium in any competition – losing 22 and draw 4 in 26 visits.
The Gunners have, however, made their worst start in the Premier League under Arsene Wenger in taking just 15 points from their opening 10 games.
The good news is that they put in a much improved performance in the Champions League in midweek when drawing 2-2 away at Schalke.
OK, they did throw away a lead, but their was much too like about the display and Olivier Giroud will have gained confidence from bagging a much needed goal.
The Frenchman is a 5.5 chance to open the scoring with bet365 and Paddy Power, but I think Theo Walcott could be the value in the goalscorer markets.
He was outstanding against Schalke, and his goal in that match means that he has now scored 7 goals this season despite nine of his previous 12 appearances coming as a substitute.
He will surely get a start in this, and looks a tasty price at 7.5 with bet365 to bag the first.
Boylesports offer 2.63 about him in their anytime scorer market, and that looks a decent punt for a player who is clearly on the top of his game.
Another bet well worth considering is under 2.5 goals at 2.25 with Boylesports and Betfred as the last 10 league games between the pair at the Emirates have produced an average of 2.1.
I am going to take Arsenal to win 2-0, and that is an 8 chance with Paddy Power.
