What Trueform says for Watford vs Bournemouth
Watford will be happy to be back on home turf after facing a tough couple of away trips before the international break and are fancied to edge out Bournemouth.
The Hornets had previously achieved high Trueform ratings for Vicarage Road victories over Everton and West Brom and also beat Chelsea at this venue in early February.
Punters can get 7/5 for a fourth straight Premier League home win and that is good enough to get the nod in our Watford vs Bournemouth betting predictions.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford had their limitations cruelly exposed when going down 3-0 at Arsenal and 5-0 at Liverpool, with Javi Gracia glad to get a fortnight off after that double blow.
The Spaniard said following the Anfield drubbing: “We need to improve and now we have time – two weeks – to prepare for our next match.”
Gracia’s side have shown much more spirit at this venue, though, claiming maximum points in three games here under the new boss.
We’re hoping for the same fluidity and movement that was on display when Chelsea were hammered 4-1, when Gerard Deulofeu ran the Blues ragged.
Energetic types Richarlison, Roberto Pereyra, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Etienne Capoue should all have recharged their batteries during the well-timed lay-off.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth climbed above Watford on goal difference thanks to a 2-1 triumph over West Brom, coming from behind to prevail via Jordon Ibe’s 77th-minute equaliser and a last-gasp Junior Stanislas strike.
Cherries manager Eddie Howe hopes warm-weather training in Dubai can help to maintain the feelgood factor, commenting: “We feel it has been of benefit for us in the past.
“Last year we came back from a break at this stage of the season and put together a really good run of results.”
However, we can’t forget the way Bournemouth were overrun on the road in last month’s 4-1 loss at Huddersfield.
The Cherries have netted in five straight Premier League away games, but defensively they look vulnerable.
That makes 13/4 for a home win and both teams to score worth adding to our Watford vs Bournemouth betting tips.
