Anyone placing a pre-game match odds wager on Monday's Premier League clash will be paid as a winner if their selection scores first at Vicarage Road

Arsenal will look to bolster their Premier League top four credentials against Watford on Monday night and William Hill's Golden Goal offer makes a return for this intriguing contest.

Simply place a match odds bet on either team to win before the action gets underway at Vicarage Road to qualify.

From there, if your selection scores the first goal of the game, you'll get paid out as a winner, in cash, regardless of the result. Full terms and conditions can be found here.

For example, Arsenal are currently available at 11/10 (2.10) with William Hill. Anyone placing a pre-game bet on the Gunners to win would see their selection settled as a winner if Unai Emery's side break the deadlock, even if they don't go on to win the game. Likewise for Watford backers should the Hornets strike first.

The maximum pay-out is £50 plus qualifying stake, so this should appeal to a wide variety of bettors. Only the first bet placed on the game is eligible for the offer so that's well worth considering in terms of staking if you wish to maximise the potential return.

The Gunners have misfired away from home this season, taking just 19 points from 15 games and scoring the first goal in 9 of those matches. Such form makes it tough to trust Emery’s men at shorter prices on the road although Arsenal backers would be safe in the knowledge their bet is a winner should they strike first.

With that in mind, value seekers could view the 23/10 (3.30) about Watford as the way to go with the Golden Goal concession in mind.

At those odds, backing the home side to win for around £22 would see a £72.60 return (including stake). Given the maximum payout for this offer is £50 cash, backing a Hornets side that have scored the first goal in their previous three home matches is a solid option with this offer in mind.

Whichever team punters choose to back for Monday’s Premier League clash, William Hill’s Golden Goal promotion should be considered as part of the punting strategy at Vicarage Road.
