Bet Builder Tips: 40/1 double for Watford's trip to the Emirates
There are four fixtures in the Premier League on Sunday with Arsenal against Watford and West Ham against Liverpool being the two that will be shown live on Sky Sports. We’ll have full previews along with tips for both of those games here on BettingOdds.com, but once again I’m on hand with his best bet builder tips for Sunday’s top-flight action.
Two selections have caught my eye, which both come from the Emirates as Mikel Arteta’s side look to make it eight unbeaten in the league, as they go in search of three points against the Hornets. At the time of writing the two picks pay best with Paddy Power at an attractive looking 40/1 and can be backed by clicking the link below.

- Emmanuel Dennis to be carded
- Nuno Tavares to be carded
- Bet Builder Double @ 40/1 Paddy Power
Emmanuel Dennis to be carded
Since taking over at Watford, Claudio Ranieri has seen his side concede five goals at home and score five goals away and will be hoping for more of the latter on Sunday. One player who should return to the side after a one match suspension is Emmanuel Dennis at the expense of Cucho Hernandez.
In his last appearance for the club, Dennis came off the bench in the 5-2 away win at Everton and picked up a booking to bring home our 28/1 double along with Lucas Digne being carded. I’m hoping for more of the same now he returns to the side and with Bukayo Saka on that side of the pitch and Dennis’ need to track back on Sunday I’ve been drawn to the 4/1 available from Paddy Power.
In total the Nigerian has been shown five yellow cards in just nine appearances in the Premier League this season. The 23-year-old has a combined average of 2.3 fouls per game for Club Brugge last season across domestic and European formats and already this term he leads the way in the English top-flight with no player having committed more fouls (23) than him with an average of 2.7 per game.
Nuno Tavares to be carded
On Friday Mikel Arteta announced that Kieran Tierney had done ”bits with the team” but is yet to fully train fully. “He is being assessed ahead of Sunday’s match”, which will most likely mean that Nuno Tavares will keep his place at left-back for the meeting with Watford.
I’m beginning to sound a bit like a broken record in putting up left-backs who are the direct opponent for Ismaila Sarr to be carded but I believe 5/1 with Paddy Power is a good price on Arsenal’s Nuno Tavares becoming the next victim to find their way into the book up against Sarr.
Five out of the ten left-backs or left wing-backs who have faced Sarr this season have been shown a yellow card and the Senegalese attacker is currently drawing 2.9 fouls per game on average for Watford.
With this in mind I’m happy to have a small play on the 40/1 double which is available from both Betfair and Paddy Power. In my opinion we are getting a decent bit of value here considering bet365 are just 12/1 on the same double! Good luck to anyone having a bet on the football this weekend and as always, please gamble responsibly.
