Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Arsenal have won their last seven Premier League meetings with Watford and are hot favourites to extend that sequence at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Gunners are hoping to keep up the pressure on leaders Chelsea, but the Hornets could also do with a positive result to stay clear of any relegation battle.
Trueform tips: Arsenal’s superiority over Watford is clear to see and while Arsene Wenger may have one eye on Saturday’s trip to Chelsea, opposite number Walter Mazzarri may also regard his side’s weekend clash with Burnley as more winnable.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal made it six wins and a draw from their last seven games in all competitions when thrashing Southampton 5-0 at St Mary’s Stadium in the FA Cup, with Theo Walcott hitting a hat-trick and Danny Welbeck a double on their first starts back after injury problems.
“From the word go, we were ready,” declared Walcott. “We’ve been lacking on poor starts lately but we came out of the blocks running. It’s nice that we created a lot of chances and tucked them away.”
With Watford struggling for form in the top flight of late, Arsenal may again look to settle the issue early on here, especially with Saturday’s trip to Stamford Bridge in mind, so we’re taking 7/10 for the Gunners to be leading at half-time and full-time.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford have gone seven Premier League games without a win and their morale suffered another blow when they crashed out of the FA Cup via a 1-0 loss at Millwall.
That was the fifth time in nine matches the Hornets have failed to get on the scoresheet, so 19/20 for Arsenal to win to nil for the fifth time in eight fixtures will be another popular bet.
The Gunners have prevailed 3-1, 4-0 and 3-0 in their last three league encounters with Watford and 19/20 for Wenger’s free-scoring team to bag at least three more goals on this occasion completes our selections.
