On Sunday, an in-form Watford team are bidding to make it a hat-trick of victories after beating Swansea and Newcastle. On the flip side, Crystal Palace are hoping to avoid a hat-trick of Premier League defeats after losing against Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
The bookies are struggling to split the two teams although Stan James dangle 6/4 in front of punters that the boys in yellow triumph. It’s worth noting that they are yet to concede at Vicarage Road this season and win to nil for Quique Flores’ men is available at 16/5 (BetVictor).
Palace are an attractive price considering that Alan Pardew’s team have claimed the scalp of Chelsea and Norwich away from home this term, with the Eagles having had a tough opening set of fixtures and the 2/1 with bet365 makes for plenty of appeal.
Odion Ighalo is 6/1 (William Hill) to score the opening goal for the third game running, with the striker having bagged a brace at St James’ Park and the Nigerian has scored three of Watford’s four Premier League goals so far. Ladbrokes offer 23/10 about the same player on their Anytime Scorer market.
However, we’re expecting a cagey encounter considering that this new-look Watford have been involved in two goalless draws and a 1-0 win at home. Palace were also involved in a low-scoring match at White Hart Lane when losing 1-0 and SkyBet go 4/6 that we see Under 2.5 Goals. For the more adventurous punter, Under 1.5 Goals is 21/10 (Winner), which means you win if there is one goal or no goals.
