What Trueform says for Watford vs Burnley
Watford and Burnley have both put together a series of good results but we feel the Hornets have more to offer ahead of their Premier League clash at Vicarage Road.
The Clarets have enjoyed some good fortune in a four-match winning run and may be brought back down to earth on this tricky road trip.
Sean Dyche’s side were beaten 3-1 when these teams met at Turf Moor in August and are tipped to struggle again here.
Punters can get 3/2 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game and that gets the nod as our first Watford vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford climbed up to seventh in the table when coming from behind to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park.
Craig Cathcart made up for a first-half own goal by equalising on 67 minutes and substitute Tom Cleverley then clinched victory with a superb volley.
“We want to prove a lot of people wrong, kick on again and go on a run to finish as high as we possibly can,” declared former England midfielder Cleverley, who has now recovered from injury problems.
The Hornets have a number of talented individuals, as highlighted by Abdoulaye Doucoure attracting interest from PSG, and are a dangerous outfit when playing with confidence.
Looking at the Watford vs Burnley odds, in-form striker Troy Deeney appeals at 9/2 to open the scoring.
The 30-year-old has netted four times in his last six appearances and was on target in the early-season triumph at Turf Moor.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Mariappa, Cathcart, Kiko, Holebas, Doucoure, Hughes, Capoue, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Deeney.
Midfielder Will Hughes is set to miss out. Andre Gray and Christian Kabasele are back in training and could both return, but Sebastian Prodl (knee) remains sidelined.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley began their winning run with a fine 2-0 victory over West Ham but it is not hard to pick holes in their subsequent exploits.
Huddersfield had key defender Christopher Schindler dismissed before half-time when losing to the Clarets, who then needed a stoppage-time penalty to edge out Barnsley in the FA Cup.
Last weekend, Fulham scored two own goals at Turf Moor, where Dyche’s men did not manage to get a single shot of their own on target.
The Cottagers also hit the woodwork twice in that fixture, so Burnley definitely seem flattered by recent results.
Dyche hailed moving three points clear of the drop zone as “a big shift”, but we are yet to be convinced.
Let’s finish off our Watford vs Burnley betting tips by taking 12/1 for the Hornets to repeat their 3-1 margin of victory from last summer.
Last Burnley line-up: Heaton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley, Cork, Hendrick, Westwood, Barnes, Wood, McNeil.
Iceland winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson faces a late fitness test on his thigh, while defensive duo Matt Lowton and Phil Bardsley are both carrying knocks.
Midfielder Steven Defour and defender Stephen Ward are in contention after featuring for the under-23s earlier this week, but goalkeeper Nick Pope will definitely miss out, as will the suspended Robbie Brady.
