Home Watford

07/04/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Vicarage Road V Predicted Score:1 - 2

Away Burnley

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Burnley’s dynamic duo of Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes are a strike force to watch in your football predictions. They are responsible for all of Burnley’s last eight goals and will see a Watford team leaking goals as a chance to add to that tally. Barnes has opened the scoring for his side in their last four games. These two provide interesting options when looking at football betting tips for the weekend.

Chris Wood to score and Burnley win double is 3/1, Wood is 3/2 to score anytime and 15/2 to score two or more. Ashley Barnes to score and Burnley win double is 7/2, Barnes is 9/4 to score anytime and 9/1 to score two or more.

2 We fancy:

It’s hard not to look towards the goals market for this game. There have been over 2.5 goals in each side’s last three Premier League games, while Watford have conceded the second-highest amount of goals in the division.

It is 13/2 for a Burnley win and both teams to score, or 5/1 for Dyche’s men to win with a total of over 2.5 goals. On current form and with those odds an away win could represent one of the best free football betting tips for this match.

3 It's a long shot, but…

To complete a Burnley-themed segment in your football score predictions, you can get odds of 12/1 on a 2-1 victory for the visitors. To bump the odds higher you could attempt a scorecast – it is 40/1 for either Chris Wood or Ashley Barnes to score first in a 2-1 Burnley win.

Team News

Watford's Last Six:

Won: 2 Drawn: 1 Lost: 3

Javi Gracia has no new injury concerns ahead of this game and will look to maintain his starting XI from last weekend’s home draw against Bournemouth.

Burnley's Last Six:

Won: 3 Drawn: 2 Lost: 1

Aside from long-term absentees, Burnley manager Sean Dyche is also relatively injury-free. After two consecutive away wins we can expect little if any change to his starting line-up.

Watford vs Burnley Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Javi Gracia is looking to secure a top half finish for Watford, while Burnley are gunning for the Europa League

Watford are now three games without a win and have conceded 10 in the process. Last week’s home draw with Bournemouth will have come as a blow after allowing their opponents to snatch an injury time equaliser. Despite their current winless run, the Hornets’ home form has been good in 2018 and they haven’t lost in front of their fans this calendar year.

This form at Vicarage Road makes the home side the slight favourites here, and it is 5/4 if you wish to add a Watford win to your weekend Premier League predictions.

Few would have earmarked Burnley in their football predictions to have such a fine season. The Lancashire side are seeking a fourth consecutive win and are on a hat-trick of away wins having beaten West Ham and West Brom in their last two games.

Burnley sit impressively in seventh spot and are currently one of the league’s form sides. Despite starting this game as slight underdogs at 23/10, another Burnley win should not be ruled out as the Clarets keep up their quest for European football next season.

These two teams have drawn 17 games between them this season, with away side Burnley responsible for 10 of them. The Clarets have drawn the third-highest number of games in the league and a joint high of six away games. It is 11/5 for the draw and with those stats in mind it looks to be a worthwhile football prediction.

Burnley duo Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes are favourites to open the scoring. The pair are priced at 4/1 and 9/2 respectively, while for Watford it is Andre Gray at 11/2 and Troy Deeney at 5/1.

Predicted Score: Watford 1 - 2 Burnley
