Watford vs Bournemouth Prediction

The struggles of the hosts to have a taste of success is yet to bear fruit. Their last clash on the road saw them salvage no more than a point against Spurs, while at home they shared the spoils with Sheffield United.

With Watford being the only team left in the table to record a victory, the squad have deservedly hit rock bottom in the table.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, have fallen out of their winning groove and have garnered no more than two points from their previous three games in the league. The last of which, ended in a stalemate against Norwich.

Eddie Howe’s men are yet to ensure consistency in their trips on the road as well. They have been alternating between wins and defeats so far, the most recent one finishing in a 1-0 loss at the hands of the Gunners.

Nevertheless, the visitors should feel confident of securing all three points in this one, given that they slotted four unanswered goals past this foe in their last trip to this venue. However, the hosts have been posting back to back draws in their previous two Premier League games here.

Taking into account that four of their past five meetings here have also ended as a tie, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing Bournemouth.

Furthermore, there has hardly been a dearth of goals when these two meet, especially at Vicarage Road. Their last three head to head fixtures in a running have been high scoring affairs with over 2.5 goals on the charts. Three of the five goals for Watford so far have also come in the comforts on their home.

With Bournemouth netting six times already on the road, expect both teams to rack up the goals tally on Saturday.
