What Trueform says for Everton vs Watford
Everton have had a couple of frustrating results but we’re hoping that doesn’t affect their confidence and Watford now feel the backlash.
The Hornets have only picked up one point from five Premier League matches themselves, so this is a good chance for the Toffees to show their true worth.
Last month’s 3-1 home win over Brighton is the stand-out effort on our Trueform chart and we’re on Marco Silva’s side to prevail again here at 3/4 as our initial Everton vs Watford prediction.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Following a heart-breaking derby defeat against Liverpool at Anfield, Everton were held to a 1-1 draw on home turf by Newcastle on Wednesday.
Richarlison cancelled out Salomon Rondon’s early breakaway strike for the visitors, but the Toffees failed to capitalise on having 76 per cent possession and 19 attempts on goal.
Gylfi Sigurdsson and Cenk Tosun both looked certain to score only to be denied by a fine block by Federico Fernandez and great save by Martin Dubravka respectively.
Silva admitted: “The goal we conceded we reacted well to, but in the second half we were more slow and a little bit more anxious.”
Nevertheless, Silva can’t wait to go up against the Hornets for the first time since they sacked him in January.
“I look forward to the match, a tough match for sure, and it will be good to see some of the players who worked with me,” he added.
Richarlison followed Silva from Vicarage Road to Merseyside and has looked worth every penny of his £40million transfer fee, netting seven Premier League goals and scoring three times for Brazil.
Looking at the Everton vs Watford odds, the 21-year-old is an obvious choice at 4/1 to break the deadlock on Monday night.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Zouma, Digne, Mina, Coleman, Andre Gomes, Sigurdsson, Gueye, Tosun, Richarlison, Lookman.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford produced a spirited late rally to ruffle Manchester City’s feathers on Tuesday, with the champions clearly rattled after Abdoulaye Doucoure made it 2-1 on 85 minutes.
However, City had dominated up until that point and held on to hand the Hornets a fourth defeat in five Premier League matches.
Goalkeeper Ben Foster, who pulled off a string of fine saves, believes they will take confidence from their fightback against the league leaders.
“I am proud of the team,” Foster said. “When you play against City it is always very easy to go a couple down, and then heads can drop and the floodgates can open.
“But we kept going, kept plugging away, we got the goal and then towards the end they are clinging on for it. There are not many teams that can say they ran Man City that close this season.
“That is tribute to our lads and we will take that into the next few games, now knowing we can compete with these sorts of teams at this level.
“Everton on Monday is a tough one, but we will take a lot of confidence with us.”
We still think the Toffees are a stronger outfit and are adding 7/2 for a 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 home win to our Everton vs Watford betting tips from the multiple correct score market.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Cathcart, Kiko, Holebas, Kabasele, Chalobah, Doucoure, Hughes, Pereyra, Deeney, Success.
