|BTTS and Over 2.5 goals Best Bet||4/5|

Arsenal go into the match as 5/4 favourites and you do wonder if mid-table Watford might start to down tools now that they can look forward to an FA Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley at the end of the season.
However, we simply cannot back Arsenal at such a skinny price when they have only won five away league matches all season. The Gunners have drawn four and lost six on the road, leaving them with the tenth-'best' away record in the top-flight.
Unai Emery's men have been dreadful defensively away from home as they are the only Premier League team who are yet to keep a clean sheet on their travels and they have conceded an eye-watering 28 goals - only lowly Burnley, Bournemouth, Brighton, Huddersfield and Fulham have conceded more.
It is worth noting that 'both teams to score' has landed in 13 of Arsenal's 15 away fixtures, with that particular bet currently 4/9 to come in again.
We like the look of both teams to score and over 2.5 goals combined (4/5 with Coral) as Watford's last six Premier League outings have all involved at least three goals, with both teams finding the net in five of those.
The Hornets are 2/1 for the win but their return of eight wins from fifteen home games hardly inspires confidence, albeit both teams scored in nine of those fifteen.
This is a fixture that does tend to provide goals and over 3.5 goals is a 13/10 punt with William Hill.
Watford have won three and lost five of eight meetings with Arsenal in all competitions since they returned to the Premier League in 2015, with those eight games producing 25 goals in total. Seven of those eight have involved at least three goals, with both teams scoring in four, including in two of three at Vicarage Road.
In conclusion, bank on goals!
