Watford vs Crystal Palace Prediction
Watford disappointingly made it four defeats out of four in their most recent matchup on the road after Leicester City slotted two unanswered goals past them. The hosts have been struggling to get things going for them, and have just one win to boast of from their last ten games in the league. That too, against the dismal Norwich.
Having garnered no more than eight points so far, the Hornets are now stuck to the bottom of the ladder.
On the other hand, Crystal Palace have not put a foot wrong in their last two games. Their previous matchup at home saw them take down Bournemouth with a 1-0 scorecard. While their last clash on the road, witnessed the visitors record a 2-0 win over Burnley.
Interestingly, the guests have been faring well in their recent outings. They have featured at the losing end just once in their past four games. In sharp contrast, Watford are yet to have a taste of success on home soil.
As such, considering the home side’s dismal streak at hand, Crystal Palace are the obvious favorites to come out on top. Be that as it may, the hosts have salvaged a point at the most in three of their last five matchups.
Taking into account that half of their past four meetings with this foe here have also ended as a tie, the safest punt would be backing a double chance.
Furthermore, Crystal Palace have not been keen on racking up the goal scoring charts in their outings. They have scored two goals or fewer in each of their last six trips on the road.
Meanwhile, their counterparts for the weekend have found the back of the net just four times at Vicarage Road this season. Hence, a low scoring affair is certainly looming large in this one.
