Watford v Manchester City Betting Tips: Goals likely at Vicarage Road

The final game of the season for both Watford and Manchester City carries little significance; Watford are safe and sound for another year at least, while Man City have secured themselves a top four spot, although you’d expect that they’d rather finish 3rd than 4th – something that can be achieved with a win here. Guardiola hasn’t exactly conquered the English game in his first season at City, but 3rd would still represent a decent campaign and is certainly something to build on. From a forward perspective, City have naturally been one of the best teams in the division, although…

Chelsea v Watford Betting Tips: Champions to continue their good form

After Chelsea’s title win on Friday night, this match is now a dead rubber for both teams as Watford also have nothing else to play for and will end up in and around mid-table. Chelsea came through a tough match on Friday night to snatch a 1-0 victory at West Brom which hands them the title. It was certainly a matter of when rather than if for Chelsea as their recent form has been stunning with five consecutive wins in all competitions. The Blues’ victory a on Friday night was typical of a championship winning side as they dug in…

Everton v Watford Betting Tips: Lukaku to help the hosts to victory

Neither of these sides have nothing much left to play for with Everton now unlikely to finish in the top six whilst Watford are all but guaranteed safety. You can tell that Everton’s foot has come off the gas in recent times as they have now failed to win in their last three, losing the latest two. This means they are now five points off 6th spot and with two games out of hand. The Toffees have struggled a lot in the final third of late and have now failed to find the back of the net in any of…

Watford v Liverpool Betting Tips: Vicarage Road set for a glut of goals

Only one of these teams realistically has something to play for with Liverpool looking to consolidate their place in the top four whilst Watford are drifting towards the end of the season with safety all but secured. Watford have actually been on a fairly decent run recently with three wins in their last five. However, the two remaining matches, losses against Tottenham and Hull City respectively, were dire performances from the Hornets. Walter Mazzarri’s side’s performance at either end of the pitch seems to depend on where they play these days. On their travels, they have failed to score in…

Millwall v Watford Betting Tips: League One side can continue their cup run

League One side Millwall knocked out Premier League AFC Bournemouth in the last round of the FA Cup and their reward is another match against top flight opposition in the form of Watford. Millwall have been on a pretty good run in recent weeks and have not lost any of their last seven matches in all competitions, however, their last victory was that shock win against Bournemouth and since then they have only managed draws in two league matches, placing them 9th in the table. Having said that, they are only five points off the play-offs so a good run…

Watford v Tottenham Betting Tips: Winning run to continue for Pochettino

The first Premier League match of 2017 sees Watford host Tottenham Hotspur at Vicarage Road. Both teams will be keen to start the new year on the right foot.  Watford are on a pretty poor run at the moment having won just once in their last six outings – losing four of them. Despite this, they still find themselves inside the top-10. The Hornets used to be a team who could be relied on for goals, but it now seems they have lost that creative spark which means they are finding it difficult to put the ball in the back…

Matches involving either of these sides tend to involve goals so we should be in for a cracker on Wednesday. Manchester City have been on a poor run in the Premier League in the last couple of weeks with two consecutive losses whilst they could only manage a draw against Celtic in a Champions League match sandwiched between those defeats. This of course means that Pep Guardiola’s side have slipped down to fourth place in the league and are currently a huge seven points off top spot. If they want to rekindle their title ambitions, they need to fix things…

Two teams likely to be in and around mid-table go head-to-head on Sunday afternoon as Watford play host to Stoke City. Watford are actually doing quite well so far this season and currently sit a lofty eighth in the league. The Hornets are on a decent run at the moment and have lost just once in their last six matches. Goals are certainly the best aspect of The Hornets’ play with their ‘Goals For’ column reading 17 which rivals or betters most of the teams around them. This of course is thanks to Watford’s quite attacking style of play. Not…

Liverpool v Watford Betting Tips

Whilst there has rightly been coverage of Liverpool’s entertaining style of play and relatively good start to the season, Watford have been sneaking under the radar and find themselves in a lofty seventh position. Liverpool have a great advantage against the top Premier League sides this season as they are not playing in any European competition, allowing them to be freshly prepared for each league match. This has been reflected in recent league form as the Reds have not lost a Premier League match since their shock 2-0 loss away at Burnley back in August. They are certainly title contenders…

Middlesbrough v Watford Betting Tips

These two sides will have the primary aim of Premier League survival this season and have made indistinct starts to their respective campaigns. Not too bad, but, at the same time, not too good either. Middlesbrough are at least outside the relegation zone, but that is certainly more down to other teams being poor rather than them performing particularly well. They have won just the one game this season and have managed to scrape three draws. While these draws may not seem like bad results on the face of it, in West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and West Ham United…

These two sides have new managers this season, both of whom are former coaches of Inter Milan. There, however, is where the comparisons end with United likely to be fighting it out for the title under Jose Mourinho whilst Watford, under Walter Mazzarri, are likely to be in a relegation battle. The Hornets may not have made the best start to the season with just one win. However, that win last week against West Ham after being 2-0 down will be a huge confidence boost to Mazzarri’s side. A positive for them is that they have scored in every match…

These two clubs are close in both geographical terms and position in the table. Vicarage Road and the Emirates are just 16 miles apart and the clubs sit 14th and 13th respectively. Watford once again changed their manager this summer, bringing in former Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri. They did well to get a draw away at Southampton on opening day and were incredibly unlucky to concede a last minute Diego Costa winner on Saturday. Whilst the Hornets may not have registered a win yet this season, they look like they should be able to retain their Premier League status. Strikers…

Both of these clubs have new managers who have never managed in the Premier League before with Claude Puel at Southampton and Walter Mazzarri at Watford. This first game will be a good indicator to how these two will adapt to life in a new league. Eyebrows were raised when the Saints appointed Claude Puel as manager after Ronald Koeman’s departure to Everton, however, he has gone about his transfer business quietly and his team have performed well in pre-season. Once again the Southampton transfer strategy of signing young players and developing them has come out in full force. 20-year-old…

Watford – Sunderland. Tancredi Palmeri’s prediction

Looking at the stats, there doesn’t seem to be much hope for Watford today. The hosts have won only four of their last 20 games. And after such a strong first half of the season Watford have really gone off the boil, although having comfortably stayed in the division their main goal has long since been achieved. It seems almost laughable that the future of Quique Sanchez Flores is in doubt, Especially when we consider how good they were before Christmas. But their poor run of results, which includes only 2 wins at home in the last 9, both against…

Norwich – Watford. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction

Watford may be “on the beach” but making Norwich odds-on favorites seems excessive to me. Especially when you consider they haven’t scored in four consecutive games. And, if you dont’ score, you don’t win. It’s true that they’ve created chances but finishing them off against a Watford side who defend well is another matter. There’s no value in taking under 2.5 goals (because that’s odds on too) so let’s go further and go with total goals under 1.5 at 3.4 with William Hill.

Liverpool – Watford. Laure James’ prediction (VIDEO)

The Europa League finalists come up against something of a bogey side in Watford, who trumped them 3-0 in the reverse fixture. With one eye heavily on the Europa League Jurgen Klopp will make changes before their European showdown, and they could be as significant as in their 3-1 loss to Swansea. At this stage the question is whether or not they can justify sacrificing another Premier League tie; rotation at the expense of momentum. With this in mind, we should see an open game. The pressure is off both of these sides, at least domestically, and this should help the…

Tottenham – Leicester Tottenham are 4 points away from Leicester and are playing at home against them. With all due respect to Leicester, but every story has an end. It’s time for them to step back. They haven’t scored in the last three Premier League games. Spurs are highly motivated and have got the better squad. As it’s an accumulator, we suggest choosing Draw no bet – Tottenham. Southampton – Watford Watford looks like a better team prior the game. Southampton’s key player Wanyama and probably Pelle will miss the game while Watford got 10 points in the last 5 away…

Southampton are in dire straits. The team got only 3 points in the last 5 games and are now only 13th in the table. The defence is poor while the attack largely depends on Graziano Pelle who will miss the game. Saints will also miss key central midfielder Victor Wanyama and long-absent Jay Rodriguez. Watford have lost momentum, too, but they played against Chelsea, Tottenham and Man City in the last 3 games. No surprise they got only one point in these games. Quique Flores’ team looked solid and scored 4 goals. Their defence wasn’t that bad, conceding goals only…

Manuel Pellegrini keeps insisting that Manchester City don’t really have any issue while playing away in Premier league. But it’s only a dialectic exercise from him because City are coming from six away games in a row without winning. And they haven’t been able to do it even against Aston Villa. Everybody had a moment to win against Aston Villa. Now they play at Watford with one of the teams that surprised us this season alongside with Leicester City and Crystal Palace. During the Cristmas time Watford couldn’t really achieve any points, but they faced Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. That’s…

Jurgen Klopp should be dissatisfied with his current results with Liverpool. Losing away at Newcastle, draw with West Brom at home…That’s why at Watford I expect the game to go by Klopp’s scenario. Watford aren’t an easy side, but Liverpool had all the time to prepare. That’s why I think 2.00 odds on Liverpool to win is a good choice.

Watford (6.86 on WhoScored) are now on fire playing with confidence like they did last year in the Championship. Yes, the confidence is their main power. Quique Sanchez Flores knows how to line up the team with good morale. And he knows how to set tournament tasks. Watford have got three wins and two loses in the last five games. Some will say that nine points were got from weak teams, but it’s not correct. Aston Villa are fighting in each game, Norwich are not bad and they have showed that vs Arsenal and Everton, and Sunderland are always tough with…

Sam Allardyce shows his tactical versatility almost every game and in some cases this gives a result for his team. He played with 4-2-3-1 formation against Stoke City and got the win using the pace of Duncan Watmore. Then he switched to defensive scheme vs Arsenal trying to secure points in away game. But Black Cats are struggling with counterattacks so in the home game they will play by set offence. This is exactly what Watford are expecting. The Deeney-Ighalo pair can comfortably run to counterattacks – they’ve scored eight of nine Watford’s goals in the last five games. And they will have…
