A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds

The Hornets were stung by a 6-1 loss at Anfield last time out, but only Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have avoided defeat against Liverpool in their past 12 outings, with the Reds bagging at least four in five of those games.

Walter Mazzarri’s men are much better home, with only Arsenal and Chelsea managing Premier League victories at Vicarage Road since Watford appointed the Italian over the summer.

They’re impossible to split in the betting against the champions at 8/5 apiece, which tells its own story.

A Look At Leicester’s Betting Odds

Drawing 1-1 away to a Spurs side that can’t buy a win right now was supposed to restart Claudio Ranieri’s men’s title defence, or at least spur them towards the European spots, but going down 2-1 at home to bogey side West Brom last time out has taken the air out of the Foxes’ tires.

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri hasn’t had much to smile about in the Premier League this season

Leicester are winless in three matches and haven’t tasted away victory in the Premier League since the second week of April, making them hard to fancy here.
