Watford v Arsenal: Preview
The last time they met in the Premier League was in December 2006 when Arsenal triumphed, and Wegner’s team are yet again the bookies favourites to win on Saturday.
In the lead up to what is effectively a local derby, we've taken a look at each teams form, the bookies offering best odds, and the free bets to claim for Watford v Arsenal.
Watford's Best Odds: 5/1
The Hornets are having a pretty decent season after their 8-year hiatus from the Premier League and are doing much better than pundits predicted.
They’ve won 2, drawn 4 and lost 2 of their 8 games so far this season and currently sit in 12th place in the table, having netted 10 points from a possible 24.
This Saturday, they face fellow North London club Arsenal, who Watford have yet to claim a point from after four encounters in the Premier League.
Quique Sánchez Flores took over in 2015, and while their defence is strong, the Hornets are struggling in attack with the lowest shot conversion rate this season.
Troy Deeney needs to start scoring or they could slip down the table, and with Peter Cech in goal on Saturday, it could be tough for Watford to get on the scoreboard.
While Watford aren’t expected to win, you never know how they’ll perform on the day.
The odds on Watford winning are quite attractive and Betfair offers the best odds at 5/1.
Arsenal's Best Odds: 8/13
Arsenal are currently in 2nd place in the Premier League table with 16 points from a possible 24, having won 5 games, lost 2 and drawn 1.
Wegner’s squad seem to be stronger and are close to reviving their Champions League hopes as well as being a leading contender for the Premier League title.
After a near perfect win over Man Utd, Wenger is hoping his squad can come back to the Premier League in the top form they showed before the international break.
Theo Walcott is having a fantastic run, having secured 12 goals and 3 assists in his last 14 league starts, while Petr Cech is in top form saving 82% of shots he’s faced.
The Gunners have won their last five meetings against Watford in all competitions and will be confident they can come away with another 3 points on Saturday.
All major online bookies offer Arsenal as favourites to win, and Coral offers the best odds at 8/13, as well as a 'bet £5, get £20 in free bets' deal for new customers.
Odds On A Draw: 16/5
Although Arsenal are expected to win, you never know how this clash will end, as these teams haven’t played in the Premier League since 2006.
If you’re placing a bet on a draw, SkyBet offers the best odds at 16/5 as well as super generous 'bet £5, get £20 in free bets' deal for new account holders.
