Arsenal host Watford in Premier League action at 3:00pm on Saturday afternoon. Both sides are in terrific form so it promises to be an exciting match at the Emirates as the sides sit 4th and 6th in the league. Unexpectedly, its Watford who were higher in the table, as they have been the surprise package so far this season.

Home Team: Arsenal

arsenal betting on footballArsenal are currently on a 6 match winning streak in all competitions at the moment, as they have quickly forgotten their poor start to the season, where they had amassed 0 points from facing Chelsea and Manchester City. On paper, Arsenal would have expected to win all those six matches, but so much was the case in recent seasons was that they were unable to get wins in the easier matches, and often provided inconsistent form.

Those wins have helped confidence throughout the club grow, and in particular their strikers, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette who have complimented each other well in recent games. Their most recent league win was at home to Everton last Sunday, but had it not been for Petr Cech making some excellent saves, they wouldn’t have been able to get the crucial win.

The fans will be hoping they can get a 7th straight victory against potentially their hardest test since Chelsea in August.

Away Team: Watford

betting on footballIf you would have told Watford manager Javi Gracia that his side would be in Champions League positions at the end of September he certainly wouldn’t have believed you. Yet, that is the case as they have started their season in stupendous form. However, it has to be mentioned that they haven’t won in their last three games which could suggest that the wheels are starting to fall off. A narrow defeat at home to Manchester United, followed by a draw in Fulham in the league has brought their league form to a halt. Additionally, they were knocked out to Tottenham on penalties in the Carabao Cup in midweek, so the test will be to see if they can pick themselves back up for this fixture at the Emirates.

Head to Head

Arsenal had inflicted 6 straight wins against Watford from 1999 to 2015 in all competitions during that period. However, in the last six matches it has been 50/50 when the sides have met, with each side winning 3 matches apiece. Watford had won at the Emirates in back to back years, winning in a FA Cup quarter final, followed by a Premier League win one year later in 2015 and 2016. Also, they were victorious at home to Arsenal in last season’s campaign in 2017.

However, the most recent time these two sides competed against each other was back in March, where Arsenal were comfortable 3-0 winners with new signings Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan amongst the goals. Can Watford add to their 2015, 2016, and 2017 successes?

Our Arsenal vs Watford Predictions and Betting Tips

Arsenal are at 4/9 to win this match, despite being two positions lower than their opponent. Watford are at 5/1 to get another win at the Emirates in recent years. For the two sides to cancel each other out, it’s at 19/5. Considering one side has won 6 on the bounce, and the other haven’t won in three its clear to see why Arsenal are chosen as favourites, and I do expect them to get a narrow victory in this match.

A 2-1 win for the home side is at 8/1 and that would be my go-to bet. Andre Gray and Troy Deeney will offer firepower for the away side, and perhaps expect them to come up with a goal, so decide if you want to back either Gray or Deeney at 5/2 to score at any time during the match.
