Crystal Palace moved out of the relegation zone with a 2-0 win at West Brom and face a Watford side still fighting to beat the drop, with just six points separating the sides.
The Hornets were on a high after beating Burnley at the start of February, but they have picked up just one point from their last three games as they prepare for the 20-mile trip to south London.
Trueform tips: Our Trueform service highlights how these two teams come into the game in contrasting form and Crystal Palace are the obvious pick to make it three wins in a row.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace are finally starting to click as they recorded back-to-back wins for the first time under former England manager Sam Allardyce, who claimed the win at The Hawthorns was “the start of the recovery”.
The Eagles have won their last two matches without conceding a goal and the low-scoring affairs that we have come to expect from an Allardyce team are also starting to return. With that in mind, Palace to beat Watford to nil at 19/10 is an eye-catching price.
Five of Palace’s last six Premier League matches have involved a team winning and under 2.5 goals. With Palace on the rise, that is our best bet for Crystal Palace v Watford at odds of 11/4.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Encounters between these two sides tend to be tight affairs as they showed at Vicarage Road earlier this season when they shared a 1-1 draw. Last season all three matches were won by a one-goal margin, with Palace winning twice and Watford once.
Watford have been trailing at half-time in their last three matches and Palace to be leading at the break and full-time is worth a look at 2/1.
Troy Deeney has scored four goals in his last three games against Palace and is also on a roll having hit the back of the net in five of his last six Premier League games, so check out the anytime scorer market.
