Watford v Bournemouth Premier League Preview, 31st March 3.00pm
The Hornets and Bournemouth are locked together on points in the middle of the table and therefore this should be a pretty even contest when they meet at Vicarage Road on the weekend. Both look more than safe enough from the drop but Watford lost their last two before the international break while the cherries have won just one of their last five. Who will come back stronger?
Watford v Bournemouth Betting Odds*
Watford 29/20, Bournemouth 2/1, Draw 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 05:25 a.m. on March 26th, 2018)
Watford News and Form
The Hornet’s suffered back to back heavy losses against Arsenal and Liverpool just before the international break, but those losses were on the road. At home they have won their last three games, their last two by a 1-0 scoreline. In the Betvictor correct score market at Watford 1-0 option is at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 05:19 p.m. on March 26th, 2018). The Hornets are actually unbeaten in their last four at Vicarage Road and have lost just one of their last six there (W4 D1) so are the clear favourites to win this game. Overall this season Watford are W6 D4 L5 on home soil in the Premier League where they have averaged about 1.5 goals per game. They have conceded at an average higher rate than that though but have clearly tightened up a little bit at the back recently, at home at least. Watford have found the back of the net in each of their last ten home games now and 60% of their home fixtures have made it above the 2.5 goal line.
Bournemouth News and Form
The Cherries have had a good spell since Christmas, losing just two games since then and they have done enough to keep themselves safe after looking in real trouble at one point. They don’t have much away form to speak of though, winning just three times away from the Vitality this season. They have only lost one of their last five though away from home (W1 D3) and they have struck the back of the net in each of their last five away games and in each of their last twelve home and away combined. While their goal output has definitely gotten better over the course of the season, their defence has gotten a little bit worse and they have gone without a clean sheet in any of their last six. You will be looking at odds of 8/13 at Betvictor* (Betting Odds taken at 05:19 p.m. on March 26th, 2018) on both teams to score. The Cherries have averaged under a goal per game away from home this season and have collected a clean sheet in just 20% of their road fixtures.
Watford v Bournemouth Head to Head
Watford were 2-0 winners at the Vitality earlier in the season and that leaves them unbeaten in their five previous Premier League games against the Terriers (W1 D4). So there has been a history of recent draws between the two and in fact, six of the last eight between them in all competitions have ended level. The Hornets are unbeaten in seven against the Cherries at home.
Who will win – Watford v Bournemouth Predictions
Watford can land the three points in this one. They are on a nice streak of winning home form and that should carry them through this. Bournemouth were just blowing a little bit cold ahead of the break and may take time to warm up again.
