Bournemouth vs Watford Prediction & Match Preview

Bournemouth vs Watford
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 2 January 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).

Watford saved a point on Saturday against Newcastle United as substitute Abdoulaye Doucoure bagged the equalizer with just eight minutes remaining on the clock. It was clearly not the best performance we’ve seen from Watford throughout the season as they just looked lame in the final third.

The Hornets slipped to 9th in the Premier League ladder after claiming just one point in past two league rounds.

Can Watford return to winning ways on Tuesday evening against Bournemouth away at Vitality?

The Cherries began the season in a promising fashion, but their form has seen a massive slide in the last couple of weeks. They lost eight, drew one and won one of past ten games across competitions.

Eddie Howe’s men are still 12 points away from the danger area thanks to the aforementioned bright start.

Bournemouth vs Watford: Head-to-head

Bournemouth pulled off their best display of the season just against Watford beating them 0-4 away at the Vicarage Road in October this year.

Joshua King notched a brace on the occasion, while Callum Wilson and David Brooks were also on target.

Four of last five H2H games between these two sides saw at least four goals scored.

Three of these five matches ended in the same 2-2 scoreline.

Bournemouth vs Watford: Prediction

We’d not be surprised to see the high-scoring head to head trend continued here. Both teams were pretty easy to break down so far in the season. The Hornets saw five of last six league games offer gals at both ends.

Bournemouth, on the other side, allowed five goals in a demolishing loss to Tottenham on Boxing Day. They, however, scored 16 and conceded 14 goals in 10 home matches this term.

The BTTS pick looks just to be the way to go and we will back it at the odds of 1.57 as the main betting option.

Bournemouth vs Watford: Bet Tips

  • BTTS @ 1.57 (4/7)
  • Over 2.5 goals FT @ 1.72 (8/11).
