What Trueform says for Leicester vs Watford
Leicester have shown tremendous resolve during a tough period and seem in good enough shape to get the better of Watford on home turf.
The Hornets have had a real up-and-down season, but currently look vulnerable on the back of a shaky run of results in recent weeks.
Getting odds against for the Foxes is fair value in our book and 6/5 for City to succeed is the first Leicester vs Watford prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester are unbeaten in four Premier League matches after coming from behind to draw 1-1 at Brighton, thanks to Jamie Vardy’s spot-kick.
The Foxes appeared to have it all to do after Glenn Murray opened the scoring for the hosts and then James Maddison was sent off inside half an hour.
However, City rallied and were the better team after the interval, with Claude Puel declaring: “I am proud about our collective reaction.
“We came back with desire but also with quality and a strong performance in our mentality and quality with the ball.
“We deserved the win at the end because we dominated a lot of the second half, played football and had chances.”
The Foxes have won this corresponding fixture for the past three seasons, netting eight times in the process.
Looking at the Leicester vs Watford odds, there is lots of appeal in 6/5 for City to score more than once against the Hornets again.
Last Leicester EPL line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Morgan, Evans, Pereira, Gray, Maddison, Albrighton, Iborra, Mendy, Okazaki.
Maddison is available after serving a one-match ban for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup penalty win over Southampton after being sent off against Brighton.
Vicente Iborra (ankle) is also in contention but Daniel Amartey (ankle), Harry Maguire (knee) and Rachid Ghezzal (leg) remain out.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford were furious after being denied a second-half penalty when the scores were level against Liverpool, before going on to lose 3-0 at Vicarage Road.
Gerard Deulofeu also had a goal correctly ruled out for offside, while Roberto Pereyra forced Alisson to make a decent save.
“In these type of games, you need to score if you have one chance,” said Javi Gracia. “If you don’t do it, you know they are able to score.”
However, overall it was a pretty tepid effort from the Hornets, who had previously lost 1-0 at Newcastle and only scrambled a late 1-1 draw at Southampton.
We just feel the Foxes are in much better spirits going into this game and 31/10 for them to oblige by more than one clear goal is added to our Leicester vs Watford betting tips.
It was 2-0 to the hosts when these teams met here in January and City prevailed 3-0 at this venue the previous May.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Mariappa, Masina, Cathcart, Kiko, Doucoure, Hughes, Capoue, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Deeney.
Watford expect to have left-back Jose Holebas available again following a calf problem.
Defender Sebastian Prodl has also been training following his leg issue, but Venezuela forward Adalberto Penaranda has a foot injury so will not be involved.
LEICESTER 0-0 Southampton (6-5 on penalties)
