our main tip:
Goal Over 2.5

FC Arsenal vs FC Watford 26.07.2020

After two impressive back-to-back wins against Liverpool and Man City, Arsenal were inexplicably toothless in their midweek 1-0 loss at Aston Villa, failing to muster even a single shot on target. That loss meant that whatever the outcome of this match, they can only finish between 8th and 10th position which is a huge disappointment for a club of Arsenal’s stature. Watford meanwhile are trying to fight for survival although things are looking really bleak for them now. A win or a draw here combined with a Villa loss will see them survive the chop. We can see them giving it a go as they have nothing to lose. That will likely leave them exposed at the back. We can see goals here and we are going with Over 2.5 as our betting tip for this game.
