Betting Tips for the game

Arsenal had a comfortable 2-0 victory over Everton in the recent Premier League game for the gunners. Unai Emery’s team went on to beat Brentford 3-1 in a comfortable London derby.

Watford were quite pleased to come away from a difficult away game against Fulham with a 1-1 draw. The club’s incredible comeback against Tottenham did not materialise, as Watford went out on penalties in the League Cup game with Mauricio Pochettino’s team after having drawn 2-2.

The recent game between Arsenal and Watford produced a 3-0 victory for the former at the Emirates stadium. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a win for Arsenal.

Match odds

Watford are priced at 6.50 despite picking two wins in the last three away matches against Arsenal, but we would not go with this option. Even though the gunners are aiming for a run of seven consecutive wins for the first time in two years, there is a real momentum and confidence within the gunners at this moment. Watford have been playing well but may not have the quality to come up with another epic performance just a few days after their 2-2 draw with Tottenham in the League Cup. Our preview would pick a win for Arsenal.

Arsenal vs Watford draw odds: 5.00

Watford win odds: 6.50

Correct Score odds

The goal contributions from the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette have been crucial for Arsenal. Meanwhile, Watford will be bringing back the big guns after resting several key players against Spurs. However, Arsenal will still possess a large amount of quality with Watford trying to sit back and hit on the break. The high defensive line of the gunners can help Watford with a goal or two. Our correct score prediction would opt for an Arsenal 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The possibility of Arsenal keeping a clean sheet does appear to be remote, as the gunners have been caught with their high defensive line more often than not. Hector Bellerin still needs a lot of discipline in order to play with a high back line and he has often been the culprit for some poor goals conceded by Arsenal. Since both teams should score, our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has come up with two goals – the same as Alexandre Lacazette – but the impact of the former Borussia Dortmund player has been less compared to the Frenchman. Even though Lacazette did not score in his only game against Watford, our first goalscorer prediction would back the Frenchman.
