Expect the Eagles to prey on wobbly Watford

CLICK TO BET:  Watford (23/20),  Draw (11/5),  Crystal Palace (23/10)

Crystal Palace have had the upper hand in recent battles with Watford, having been victorious in six of the last ten league meetings between the two sides.

Sean Dyche’s men have not tasted victory in this fixture since September 2009 and are 23/20 to pick up the three points this weekend.

The last time the Eagles travelled away from Selhurst Park they came home with an impressive 3-1 win at early pace-setters Brighton and will be confident ahead of their second London derby in as many weeks after their 2-2 draw with promotion favourites West Ham last weekend.

Should this derby finish level, those who backed the draw at 11/5 will be happy.

Watford have not kept a home clean sheet so far this season and with Palace’s Darren Ambrose and Glenn Murray netting in their last two outings, the Hornets could well struggle to keep the visitors out here.

Last season’s clash at Vicarage Road finished 1-1 and odds of a repeat scoreline this time around are 11/2. Punters who register for bwin.com and stake their free £25 bet on this could walk away with £162.50 should the result come in.

The signs are not good for Watford as they have conceded the first goal in every home game this season and have only managed to register four times in those games. With that in mind, back the Eagles at 27/20 to score the first goal.

There are usually goals in this fixture and there has not been a goalless contest between these two sides since September 1995.

Palace’s last two games have had exactly four goals scored and the odds of there being exactly four goals in this match-up are at 11/2 – well worth consideration.

You can also get odds of 12/5 on there being over 3.5 goals in the game. However, the best play could be to back Palace to win and for there to be over 3.5 goals in the game, which is priced at a hugely tempting 21/2.
