Watford V Tottenham

Watford have a torrid time of late, winning 1 of there last 6 games and losing 4 of them. They had to come from behind last time out to snatch a draw at home against Palace who also missed a first half penalty which would have put them 2 up. Watford will feel very fortunate to come away with a draw and they still find themselves in the top half of the table.

Tottenham have won 5 of their last 6 only losing to Man Utd, their last outing against Southampton was mightily impressive 4-1 win away from home. I think they can continue that form here against Watford and are @8/11 with William Hills to do so. You can get @5/1 with Ladbrokes and BetFred for Watford and you can get @14/5 with various firms for the draw.

Arsenal V Crystal Palace

Arsenal take on Palace in a all London affair, Arsenal after losing 2 in a row to Everton and Man City managed to get back to winning ways with a 1-0 home win over West Brom last time out. The Gunners dispite having 76% of the possession struggled to put the ball in the back of the net. They had 26 shots to West Broms 3 and they finally broke the deadlock in the 86th minute.

Palace haven’t been in very good form and have not won a game in their last 4. They had an excellent opportunity to take all 3 points last time out but missed a penalty and gave up a 1 goal lead to Watford and the match finished 1-1. This should be an easy win for the home side who are best price 1/3 with most companies, you can back them to be winning at HT and FT @1/1 with Corals. If you fancy the “Big Sam” affect to kick in having returned to management Palace can be backed @9/1 with most firms. The draw is @9/2 with most firms.
