Watford are holding ground in mid-table after a draw on the weekend against Bournemouth after being denied a win right at the death.

Watford v Burnley Betting Odds*
Watford 5/4, Draw 11/5, Burnley 23/10* (Betting Odds taken at 9:26 p.m. on April 2nd, 2018)
Watford News and Form
Watford were denied a home win against Bournemouth last weekend because of a dramatic equaliser from Jermain Defoe in the 90th minute. That would have moved Watford to a four-match winning streak at home, but still, they are unbeaten in five now at home in the league with a W3 D2 record and things are going much better for them. They have netted in each of their last eleven at Vicarage Road and that’s a good consistent trend to follow. Watford to win 1-0 in the bet365 correct score market is at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:35 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). So they are once again looking a solid side at home to consider backing this weekend they have averaged 1.5 goals exactly per game at Vicarage Road this season. They have struggled at the back at times conceding an average of 1.75 goals per home game, but have two clean sheets in their last three on home soil. They are up at a quote of 5/2 with bet365 to win to nil* (Betting Odds taken at 7:35 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). 62% of Watford’s home games this season have ended with at least three goals, but the visiting Burnley are a tough side to break down so it’s probably worth considering this one finishing under the 2.5 goal line.
Burnley News and Form
The Clarets have really come back to life again now having put together a three-match winning streak and their last two have been out on the road as well. That is at least two goals in each of their last three league games now from the Clarets who are unbeaten in four in total. Their away form this season is W6 D6 L4 but they have lost just one of their last four away from Turf Moor (L1). Chris Wood is bang in form for them at the moment with four goals in his last three games and he is the bet365 6/4 anytime goalscorer favourite for the game* (Betting Odds taken at 7:35 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). Burnley have tallied 17 goals in their 16 games on the road this season while defensively their average is fantastic at under a goal per game. So they know how to keep things tight and only 38% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. They are confident and in form and can challenge at Vicarage Road. Ten of Burnley’s twelve league wins this season have all been by a one-goal margin.
Watford v Burnley Head to Head
Burnley took a 1-0 home win over Watford earlier in the season and they are W2 D4 L1 in their last seven against Watford. Watford are running on a four-match unbeaten streak of form on home soil against the Clarets though (W2 D2). Four of the last five meetings have gone under 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Watford v Burnley Predictions
The draw wouldn’t be a bad proposition for this one. Burnley are looking confident and together again while Watford have decent enough home form going to avoid defeat. A share of the spoil would leave both relatively happy with their afternoon of work.
