Arsenal v Watford Betting Tips – 11th March 2018
Are we finally witnessing the end of Arsene Wenger’s time as Arsenal manager?
The Frenchman has been losing support among the Gunners’ faithful for years now but it finally feels as though the tide has turned and the board will make a change come the end of the season.
After a couple of horrible performances in the Carabao Cup final and against Brighton last week, the atmosphere at the Emirates could be horrible come kick off. It will definitely be horrible if Watford manage to get in front and you can be sure Javi Gracia will be imploring his team to turn the crowd against the home side.

Watford Unlikely to Make It Four League Defeats in a Row for Arsenal
There was something in the air at the Amex Stadium on Sunday. The Brighton fans seemed to feel that their team would pull off something special and the players clearly fed on that believe.
It’s hard to imagine that the Watford fans who turn up to the Emirates will be quite so optimistic about their team’s chances.
Yes, Arsenal are in disarray but it’s been a long time since Watford have put together a convincing run of form.
The Hornets’ wins in the last two matches were narrow 1-0 victories against poor Everton and West Brom sides. They are also free of any real worries about relegation so it’s hard to see where the motivation will come from.
The Arsenal players may well have lost faith in their manager but they’ll still be motivated to ensure they don’t face the wrath of the Emirates faithful.
Watford have lost every away game they’ve played against the Premier League’s top 11 sides. Arsenal should ensure that run continues and avenge their defeat at Vicarage Road by winning on Sunday at 1/2 with BetVictor.
Arsenal’s Star Power to Get Them Out of Trouble
One of the main issues that the Arsenal fans have with the club is the amount of money that has been wasted on substandard players.
The signings of Granit Xhaka, Shkodran Mustafi and Alexandre Lacazette have not worked out but there is more optimism about recent additions Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Arsenal fans are hoping that the pair of them will dovetail together just as well as they did at Borussia Dortmund but they’ve so far only seen glimpses of what they’re capable of.
They’re not the only Arsenal players who can come up with something special to turn the course of a game and it may be that moments of individual brilliance are enough to sink Watford.
Given Watford also have players who can score out of nothing, a bet on over 3.5 goals looks worth a shot at 141/100 with Marathonbet.
We also like the look of the 7/4 that Paddy Power are quoting on Mkhitaryan scoring at any time during the game.
Tired Legs to Provide an Entertaining Finish
Part of the problem with Arsenal’s league form this season is the punishing schedule that comes with playing in the Europa League.
The Gunners have to treat the tournament with utmost seriousness now as it’s their only realistic route back into the Champions League next season.
Fatigue is sure to be a problem for Arsenal following their match against AC Milan on Thursday night, something that Watford will try their best to exploit. Therefore, we’re expecting a fast start as well as late drama.
You can capitalise on this with your betting by backing over 1.5 first half goals at 27/20 with Coral and for the last goal to come after 75 minutes at 23/25 with Marathonbet.
