What Trueform says for Burnley vs Watford

Burnley and Watford have faced some tough fixtures of late, but both continue to pick up more positive results than setbacks suffered in the Premier League.

Each team will be more than happy to be in the top half of the table at this stage, with only one place separating them in seventh and eighth respectively.

The Clarets may just have the edge on our Trueform chart via their three wins, but there is very little in it and 21/10 for a draw looks the way to go in our Burnley vs Watford betting predictions.

A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds

Burnley couldn’t build on a run of four wins in five matches when losing 1-0 at Leicester, but they did create their fair share of half-chances and Chris Wood almost earned them a point.

“We had a chance to nick one at the end of the game, but did not quite get the rub of the green,” reflected Sean Dyche.

“However, we like the fact we are keeping games tight, that’s an important theme for me. I’ve told the players we’re progressing.”

Losing Robbie Brady to injury in that game will give Dyche problems, though, as he has been one of the Clarets’ most reliable and creative players.

Five of the last eight meetings between these sides have ended in stalemate, with four of those being score draws.

That makes 333/100 for both teams to hit the target and share the spoils stand out from the Burnley vs Watford odds.

A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds

Watford came through two tough home games against Manchester United and Tottenham with only one point, but Marco Silva will take heart from the performances produced.

The Hornets rallied from 3-0 down to challenge the Red Devils before Jesse Lingard’s superb solo strike ended their fightback.

Watford then pushed hard to see off 10-man Spurs, but had to settle for a 1-1 draw as Richarlison had a strong penalty appeal turned down and Abdoulaye Doucoure hit the post.

Silva’s influence was evident as Harry Kane and Dele Alli were subjected to some stern challenges from a team more renowned for being flaky at the back last term.

Assessing the season so far, the likeable manager declared: “We have started well and everybody is enjoying it, but I want everybody with their feet on the floor.”

We’re finishing off our Burnley vs Watford betting tips by taking 5/1 for a steady 1-1 draw at Turf Moor.
