Watford vs West Bromwich Albion
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 3 March 2018
Kick-Off 15:00 UK
Venue: Vicarage Road Stadium (Watford).
West Bromwich Albion have ended the last term in the top half of the standing and not many experts predicted them to be at the very foot of the league table after 28 rounds in the new season. However, the Baggies have been the weakest side in the competition so far and they are as many as seven points shy of the safe zone at this stage.
Alan Pardew’s men will thus have an imperative to get the result on Saturday when they visit Vicarage Road Stadium to take on Watford. This is definitely one of the last trains to catch for WBA whose fortunes have not changed at all since Pardew took over their lengthy manager Tony Pulis on the bench.
The Baggies come into the game in a dreadful form having lost five on the bounce across competitions. The latest of the failures happened last weekend when West Brom fell 1-2 at home to recently-promoted Huddersfield Town to further complicate their disastrous situation in the league standings.
Bouncing back at Vicarage Road Stadium will be a massive challenge for Pardew and his men since Watfod have been pretty efficient in the final third in their most recent set of fixtures at home. The Hornets have bagged seven goals in last three home outings which have seen them win two and draw one in the process. It’s hard to go past the home win pick knowing that West Bromwich Albion have picked up just pone point from last five league games away from The Hawthorns.
Watford vs West Bromwich Albion: Head-to-head
WBA lead the head to head tie by seven wins coming into their 32nd meeting with Watford.
The Baggies have even been more successful in matches at Vicarage Road Stadium (6 wins to Watford’s 5).
This term’s encounter has seen a 2-2 draw in late-September last year at The Hawthorns.
Watford vs West Bromwich Albion: Prediction
The Hornets enter the game as the form favourites and we just have to back the home win at the odds of 2.00 since the Baggies have been really struggling for results of late.
We will also take Watford to score two or more goals at the 2.20 odds knowing that they’ve bagged four past the defending champions Chelsea recently at Vicarage Road Stadium.
