Watford v Palace: 0-0 at half-time is the “risk-free bet” of choice


Watford face Crystal Palace on Sunday teatime and there are plenty of opportunities for Ladbrokes customers to cash in on some terrific offers from the bookmakers.

The result is a tough one to call, as Palace have been narrowly beaten twice against top sides in the Premier League before sweeping Championship side Charlton aside in the League Cup.

Meanwhile Watford have pieced together successive wins in the top flight, though both have been of a squeaky nature, 1-0 at home over Swansea and 2-1 away at Newcastle.

Something must give, but utilising Ladbrokes *In-Play offer on either the 6/4 hosts or 2/1 visitors cannot be done with any confidence as the close nature of the odds suggest.

It is worth noting that the Eagles had by far the better of it at Vicarage Road when the two teams played together in the Championship though, claiming four wins, two draws and only a single loss when making the relatively short trip north.

*Place a bet up to £/€25 on the Watford v Crystal Palace match (16:00 Sunday 27th September) at minimum odds of 1/2. Then place an In-Play bet up to the same amount at minimum odds of 1/2 (hereby referred to as “Risk-Free Bet”) and get your money back if it loses.

Instead, we’d suggest having a crack at the 13/8 about the result being 0-0 at half-time. None of the Hornets’ three home league matches have seen a net rippled before the break as yet, with two finishing as goalless stalemates.

Meanwhile Alan Pardew’s men have only scored once before half time on their travels this season and that came against Norwich on the opening day, as recent away trips to Chelsea and Tottenham delivered on this bet.

Ladbrokes are also boosting the price on Quique Flores’ hosts to win the match with both teams scoring from 4/1 out to 5/1.

Being a televised game this Premier League clash is also eligible for the Sharp Shooter offer* on first goalscorer bets.
