Watford v Crystal Palace Betting Odds*
Crystal Palace 6/4, Watford 13/8, Draw 21/10* (Betting Odds taken at 4:04 p.m. on April 16th, 2018)
Watford News and Form
Watford’s form has really taken a nosedive. They have collected only the one point from their last five league games played now which was a home draw against Bournemouth at the end of March. The Hornet’s lost 1-0 at Huddersfield on the weekend and things just aren’t happening for them. They have now failed to score in three of their last five games and under 2.5 goals at Paddy Power is at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:04 p.m. on April 16th, 2018). As a positive, Watford have scored in each of their last twelve home games which is a great streak so backing both teams to score in the match should be a decent option. At the back, they have conceded at least two goals in their last two home fixtures. Watford have conceded 1.76 goals per game at home on average this season. Of the goals that they have netted at Vicarage Road this season 68% of them have cropped up in the second half of games so perhaps a half-time draw is worth a look as well. In total Watford have conceded at least one goal in 76% of their home league games this season.
Crystal Palace News and Form
The Eagles gave themselves a huge boost on the weekend with a 3-2 win at home over Brighton which just eased them away a little further from trouble. They aren’t out of the woods yet though but they could get something out of this as they are catching Watford at the right time by the look of it. Palace’s away form is just W3 D5 L9 but they have collected four points from their last two road games. Palace are on a nine-match scoring streak away from home at the moment and they have netted exactly two in their last two. The Paddy Power correct score market has the 1-1 draw as the shorted priced option but a Crystal Palace 2-1 success could offer some appeal at 9/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:04 p.m. on April 16th, 2018). Of the goals that Crystal Palace have scored on their travels, 71% of them have come in the second half of matches. Luka Milivojevic is their top scorer away from home this season with six road goals and he is a 16/5 anytime goalscorer option* (Betting Odds taken at 4:04 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) for this one.
Watford v Crystal Palace Head to Head
Palace were 2-1 winners at home earlier this season and that is a four-match undefeated streak of form that they have going over Watford across all competitions. Palace’s last two wins over the Hornets have been by a 2-1 scoreline and last season they took a draw at Vicarage Road, leaving them unbeaten there in their last six visits in all competitions.
Who will win – Watford v Crystal Palace Predictions
