What Trueform says for Watford vs Bournemouth
Bournemouth can boast the stand-out performance on our Trueform chart from when beating Leicester but otherwise they are pretty evenly matched with Watford.
The Hornets have dropped off since making a flying start to the season but they have had some tough fixtures to contend with of late.
Five of the past six Premier League encounters between these teams have ended in stalemate and 13/5 for another draw is our first Watford vs Bournemouth prediction.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford’s early-season bubble has burst, with the Hornets following up four straight top-flight triumphs by taking just one point from their next three games.
However, they have lost to Manchester United and Arsenal either side of a decent 1-1 draw at Fulham.
It should also be noted that Javi Gracia’s side were arguably the better team at Emirates Stadium last Saturday until a late Craig Cathcart own goal and a Mesut Ozil strike turned things around.
Troy Deeney earlier forced a fine save out of Arsenal substitute goalkeeper Bernd Leno and Isaac Success clipped the post moments after coming off the bench.
Midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure told the club website: “We played 80 minutes very well.
“We defended well and created chances, but we didn’t score and against this type of team we know you have to score first.”
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Cathcart, Navarro, Holebas, Kabasele, Doucoure, Hughes, Capoue, Pereyra, Deeney, Gray.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth moved level with Watford on 13 points when edging out Crystal Palace 2-1 thanks to an early David Brooks strike and a late penalty from Junior Stanislas.
That result gave us a trio of winning tips on the match, including an 8/1 correct score pay-out, as the Cherries bounced back from a previous 4-0 drubbing at Burnley.
Eddie Howe hailed the impact Stanislas made only three minutes after coming on as a substitute, bagging a first Premier League goal since his return from a six-month absence with a knee injury.
“He’d not touched the ball,” said the manager. “He is the penalty taker, but it’s not easy to get the composure to grab the ball and take it. It was a huge moment for the team.
“It’s been a long journey back from injury for him. We are delighted Junior was on the pitch, as he has such a cool head.
“We had to defend well. We shaded it and deserved to win. They did well for long spells in the second half, but I was pleased with the mentality of the group to go again after conceding the equaliser.”
These sides have drawn 2-2 at Vicarage Road for the past couple of seasons and 12/1 for a repeat of that scoreline completes our Watford vs Bournemouth betting tips.
Last Bournemouth line-up: Begovic, Francis, Cook, Ake, Smith, Lerma, Cook, Brooks, Fraser, Wilson, King.
