Liverpool v Watford Premier League Preview, 17th March 5.30pm
With the rest of the top four having a break from league action this weekend, Liverpool can claw their way up into third place on Saturday with a win over Watford. The Reds will be looking for an immediate response too after their loss against Manchester United last weekend. Watford have improved their stock lately, but only at home.
Liverpool v Watford Betting Odds*
Liverpool 1/7, Draw 13/2, Watford 14/1* (Betting Odds taken at 8:12 p.m. on March 13th, 2018)
Liverpool News and Form
Liverpool’s home form for the season stands at W9 D6 so they are defending an unbeaten record in this one. They have won their last two league games at Anfield, scoring six and conceding just the one. As Liverpool have only shipped just the 10 goals in 15 home games this season, Liverpool to win to nil at Paddy Power looks to be a good place to start for action in this one at 10/11 odds * (Betting Odds taken at 8:12 p.m. on March 13th, 2018). They have responded with a win following each of their last two defeats in the top flight and have a good chance to do so again in this one. Liverpool have scored at least two goals in each of their last six home games and in the Paddy Power correct score market a Liverpool 2-0 option is value at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:12 p.m. on March 13th, 2018). Of their home goals, this season 67% of them have come in the second half of matches as they really punish tiring teams. Mo Salah, who was shutout against Manchester United last weekend is the First Goalscorer favourite for the game. A win for Liverpool moves them back up into third by two points ahead of Spurs.
Watford News and Form
The Hornets have been doing much better lately with three wins in their last five (L2). The two defeats there have been out on the road and they are struggling badly for any kind of away form. Watford are D1 L7 in their last eight away games in the top flight and they are without a goal in any of their last four too. Their overall record on their travels is W4 D2 L9 so they are vulnerable in this one for sure. The Hornets have conceded an average of 1.6 goals per game on their travels and they have conceded 62% of their goals in the second half of away matches. Just two teams have conceded more goals than Watford have done in this season’s Premier League. The Hornets have opened the scoring in just six of their away games this season and both teams not to score at Paddy Power is at even money odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:12 p.m. on March 13th, 2018).
Liverpool v Watford Head to Head
There was a 3-3 thriller at Vicarage Road between these two recently and that just extended Liverpool’s unbeaten form to four matches against the Hornets in the top flight (W3 D1). At Anfield, Liverpool are on a four-match winning streak of form against Watford, three of those with a clean sheet. Both teams have scored in just two of the last nine meetings in all competitions and from the previous nine Premier League meetings, Liverpool are W6 D1 L2 against the Hornets.
Who will win – Liverpool v Watford Predictions
Watford’s defence is likely to let them down in this one and Liverpool will be hungry to bounce back after last weekend’s disappointment. It’s worth taking a flutter on the home side to get the three points with a clean sheet behind them.
