Watford v Everton Premier League Preview, 24th February 5.30pm
Watford are only four points above the drop zone heading in the weekend and they will look for a big three home points as they face up to Everton. A win in the home fixture could well pull the Hornet’s up into the top half of the table though. Everton have won two of their last three league games but remain vulnerable at the back.
Watford v Everton Betting Odds*
Watford 23/20, Draw 11/5, Everton 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 11:30 p.m. on February 20th, 2018)
Watford News and Form
The Hornets suffered a 2-0 loss at West Ham in their last league matches which leaves them with a W1 D2 L2 record in their last five played. Their home record now for the season stands at W4 D4 L5 and in their last game at Vicarage Road they produced arguably their best performance of the season to smash Chelsea 4-1 in a fully deserved victory. That is W2 D1 L1 that they have produced at home in their last four league games so there is a little more hope there. They have scored twenty goals in their thirteen league games at home and have found the back of the net in each of the last eight there. It is probably worth looking over 2.5 goals at bet365 for the game as neither of these defences really look up to very much. Watford have conceded in each of their last seven league games now and overall have shipped to an average of two goals per home game. Both teams to score at Bet365 is going to have plenty of appeal as well. 69% of games at Vicarage Road this season have gone over 2.5 goals including each of the last five.
Everton News and Form
The Toffees have lost one of their last four (W2 D1) however, both of the wins in that sequence were at Goodison Park though. They are on a three-match losing streak away from home which is a bit troubling and they have won just the one away game all season. There has been a real lack of attacking threat from them on their travels with the Toffees only netting nine away goals this season which is extremely poor. They are without a clean sheet in any of their last seven Premier League games as well and in their last four road games specifically, they have conceded twelve goals. So they are certainly going to be at risk in this one. 76% of Everton’s points have been earned at home this season and only two teams have managed to pick up fewer away points than the Toffees have managed this term. Top scorer for them out on the road this season is Wayne Rooney who has netted four and he’s the only Everton player to have managed more than one away goal this season. Will their lack of form out on the road come back to haunt them again?
Watford v Everton Head to Head
Everton were 3-2 home winners over Watford earlier in the season and that is back to back league wins that they have banked over the Hornets. Everton are W6 D2 L1 from their nine previous Premier League games against the Hornets However, Watford have taken four points from their last two league home games against the Toffees. Seven of the nine previous Premier league clashes have gone over 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Watford v Everton Predictions
Watford really have to seize this chance to get some breathing space between themselves and the drop zone. They are capable of stringing together a good enough performance which could down the sloppy Everton back line. Home win.
