Away Watford

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Red Cards. In three of the last five games a red card has been shown with the two London sides often embroiled in a fiery affair.

Red cards often lead to penalties and for one to be awarded is 3/1. If it is in-favor of Watford, then you will be in for a bumper pay-out thanks to your Deeney to score bet as mentioned above.

2 We fancy:

Both teams to score and the game finish a draw is 10/3 and although neither manager will admit it, they would probably take that point now, especially the away side.

Watford have drawn twice in the league in 2018 and West Ham have drawn three times in the same period making a scoring stalemate the most likely outcome.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Gerard Deulofeu to score a hattrick pays a whopping 275/1 but why not? The former Barcelona man is a resounding talent and scored on his home debut on Monday night.

He has done it for Spain’s under 21’s and for Barcelona B so is more than capable of netting a trio.

West Ham vs Watford Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

West Ham haven’t had that much to celebrate this season but they’re out of the Premier League’s bottom three

Up until Monday night, things were taking a dramatic turn for the worse for Watford. However, that 4-1 home win over Chelsea changes everything and the Hornets will turn up at the London Stadium with renewed vigor. Form has been a little under par of late for the Hammers and although Moyes has dragged West Ham away from immediate danger, the threat still persists. Two evenly matched sides will meet in East London with three points very much on the agenda for both.

West Ham are 13/10 to win the match and for a side playing at home and just one place behind their opponents in the league looks pretty good on paper. However, football is not played on paper, but West Ham have still only lost once in the league in 2018 making their odds against price even more appealing.

Watford are 21/10 to win and for a side that has just hammered the champions, that looks a storming price. The worry is whether that result was a flash in the pan or the real deal. Also, Chelsea were down to 10-men for most of the game AND it took the Hornets until late in the game to seal it. 21/10 is a risk as but at that price, it is a risk worth taking.

The draw is 9/4 and much of the smart money will no doubt go on this being the result. The Hammers have drawn 33% of their home games this season and you feel neither side would leave the London Stadium with too many complaints if that were to be the outcome.

Both teams to score is 7/10 and based on the fact that in four of the last six games have resulted in both teams netting in the match, that is a solid price to back. Coupled with this is the fact that West Ham have scored in every league game so far in 2018 and Watford have managed seven Premier League goals since the start of the year.

Troy Deeney to score at anytime is 23/10 and as the Hornets penalty taker and nuisance around the box, it has got to be worth a look. The hitman also scored against the Blues on Monday night and has a habit of popping up when needed.

Predicted Score: West Ham 1 - 1 Watford
