And if you like the look of our BTTS tips, combining all our BTTS predictions into a five-fold will pay just over 12/1.
Both teams to score predictions: November 23
Under-pressure managers Unai Emery and Ralph Hasenhuttl meet at the Emirates where we're expecting to see goals at both ends.
Both teams have kept just two clean sheets this season and Saints' astonishing 9-0 home defeat by Leicester means they unsurprisingly have the leakiest defence in the Premier League, but in terms of expected goals these teams are closely matched at 12th and 13th.
Of the teams inside the top 10 only Burnley (18) have conceded more goals than Arsenal and with both teams ranking high in the both teams to score table at 67%, this match looks an ideal way to kick off our goals galore tips.
The Seagulls are in the bottom half of the table but their expected goals tally has them in sixth spot for quality chances created.
Graham Potter's side have scored in every home game this season bar the 2-0 defeat by Southampton during which they had Florin Andone sent off after half an hour, so they can perhaps be forgiven for failing to find the net against a team not known for their mean defence.
The Foxes have scored in 10 of their 12 matches this season and have kept clean sheets in their last three games against Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Southampton, but we expect that record to end on Saturday.
Both matches between these teams last season saw goals at both ends and with Brighton an attacking force under Potter, this match looks ideal as one of our BTTS predictions.
This weekend's best bets
If you're interested in football accumulators, check out our regular betting columns:
Championship leaders West Brom continue to ship goals at home where they have conceded exactly two goals in each of their last five games.
The Baggies' last 11 matches at The Hawthorns stretching back to last season have also produced goals at both ends, so it's small wonder they make the cut as one of our both teams to score tips today.
The Owls have scored and conceded in seven of their last 10 away games, scoring in six of their games on the road, and last season both meetings between the teams ticked the both teams to score box with 1-1 and 2-2 draws.
Added together, we're happy to add this match to our both teams to score predictions.
We're staying in the Championship for the next of our BTTS tips and expect goals at both ends in the clash between Blackburn and Barnsley at Ewood Park.
Rovers have been prolific in this market with eight of their last nine matches producing goals at both ends, but the Tykes have been even better with punters being paid out in their past eight.
The Yorkshire side are bottom of the table having conceded 21 goals in their last eight matches and 33 overall - the most of any of their Championship rivals.
Rovers have let in 13 goals in their last six games so they are hardly watertight and easily make the cut as the fourth leg of our BTTS tips.
We're dipping into League One for the last of our BTTS tips today as Oxford, on the fringe of the play-off places, travel to Southend who have lost 14 of their 17 matches.
Punters betting on both teams to score would have been paid out in 10 of Oxford's last 12 away games and in six of the Shrimpers' previous seven matches overall.
Sol Campbell was recently installed as Southend manager to improve a defence which has conceded 48 goals this season - the worst in all four divisions - but his appointment has made little difference.
The Us have only once failed to score this season - bizarrely at Bolton who were in financial dire straits at the time - so the question seems to be whether Southend can find the net.
They managed to do so in three of their five matches against top-six sides, sticking three past leaders Wycombe, so the odds are stacked in their favour.
Traders' Tips - View from the trading floor
Clean sheets are unlikely in the clash between Arsenal and Southampton on Saturday when Bournemouth and Wolves are also likely to see goals at both ends. Manchester City's defence continues to look stretched and they will be under pressure against a Chelsea team that have scored just one goal fewer than Liverpool.
