Watford v Crystal Palace 12:15

We get going in the FA Cup Quarter-finals with an all-Premier League clash as Crystal Palace travel to Watford.

The sides have already met twice this season and with Watford winning them both 2-1 then the Hornets will head into the fixture with the upperhand.

However, as we all know the cup can throw the form book out of the window!

Watford are around 12/1 to win the FA Cup, while Palace are a slightly bigger 18/1.

The 90 mins match betting sees Watford at clear favourites at 2.37, with the draw 3.20 and Palace 3.00, while the outright betting has Watford at 1.70 and Palace on 2.05.

The sides have met 7 times in the FA Cup before too, with Palace winning 3, Watford 2, plus 2 draws, so things are have been very even in this competition.

This is also backed-up with 3 of the last 5 head-to-heads ending in draws, but it is worth noting Watford are unbeaten in their last three vs the Eagles.

Palace tend to have better form away from home, but to counter act this Watford also have a decent home record so we could be in for a tight encounter.

Don’t forget, the teams also last met in this competition in the 2016 semi-final at Wembley – with Palace winning that clash 2-1.

So, overall the draw looks a bet that is sure to give punters a run for their money, but with both teams scoring in 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads then the 1.80 on this happening again is how we are going to play this one.

BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE@ 1.80
