North London Double On The Cards Today
Arsene Wenger keeps coming back and using up his lives and Arsenal can get him out of trouble again by beating Watford at home today. It looked like he would be getting his coat but then Arsenal beat AC Milan in Italy in the Europa League on Thursday. Football fans are fickle and the flood of anti-Wenger feeling could have subsided and beating Watford at the Emirates would continue that process. Watford have won three of the last five meetings but ARSENAL must be backed at 1/2 with Ladbrokes to win this fixture.
Tottenham can complete a north London double by winning at Bournemouth in the other live TV fixture. Their Champions League campaign came to a shuddering halt against Juventus last week but the quest for a top four place in the Premier League continues today. Bournemouth have only scored one goal against today’s opponents in five matches in the Premier League. Bournemouth have not lost in six fixtures at home but TOTTENHAM can end that run at 8/15 with William Hill. The double with Arsenal is a 5/4 chance.
It’s the Sunday before the Cheltenham Festival so the racing is understandably ordinary. The festival looks like starting on the softest ground for 20 years. Warwick and Market Rasen stage jumps cards two days before the biggest betting meeting of the season. The richest race of the day is the handicap chase at Warwick (3.55pm). The 11 runners are closely matched in an open contest. On ratings and course form TALK OF THE SOUTH is the horse to back at 4/1 with bet365.
