Watford vs Leicester: Entertaining draw on the cards

Kick-off: 1230, 20/06/2020

Stadium: Vicarage Road

TV: BT Sport

Watford and Leicester have plenty to fight for as they return to Premier League action at Vicarage Road.

The Hornets are out of the bottom three only on goal difference while the Foxes remain in the driving seat to clinch third place.

Punters can get 91/100 for there to be over 2.5 goals, which has been the case in this corresponding fixture for the past three seasons.

A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds

Watford were on cloud nine following their win over Liverpool at this venue which ended the champions-elect’s hopes of going through the league season unbeaten.

But that is their only victory in the last seven top-flight matches (D2 L4) after the initial new manager bounce under Nigel Pearson which saw them climb off the foot of the table.

Four of Watford’s six wins have arrived at Vicarage Road with Southampton, Norwich and Newcastle all to visit still before their final home clash against Manchester City.

Defender Craig Cathcart told the club website: “You can’t feel your way in. We’ve got to make every game count and start as strong as possible and be as consistent as possible. 

“We are in a mini league down there and we have to continue with the good results and good form we showed under Nigel before lockdown.” 

Scoring goals for Watford has not been a problem with them finding the net at least twice in five of their last six league games. 

Looking at the Watford vs Leicester odds, we are adding 19/10 for the home side to score more than 1.5 goals.

Last Watford line-up: Foster, Masina, Cathcart, Kiko, Kabasele, Doucoure, Hughes, Capoue, Pereyra, Deeney, Sarr.

A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds

Leicester’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium on March 9 was the last Premier League game to be played before the suspension.

Striker Jamie Vardy returned from a calf injury to end a nine-game goal drought with a brace, having come on as a substitute just before the hour mark.

It moved Vardy on to 99 Premier League goals and boss Brendan Rodgers, who was diagnosed with coronavirus, said: “That was him back to what he’s good at. He was aggressive on the back line and a threat.

“He showed really good composure for the penalty because he was only on the pitch a couple of minutes. The second goal was just natural for him, it just falls to him in the box and he finishes it.

“It was very important with nine games to go that we played this game like a cup final, and there’s many more cup finals before the finish.”

Leicester have failed to score in their last two away games in the league but with Vardy back and refreshed, they can once again be an attacking threat.

We are going for a speculative punt of 27/2 that this match ends in a 2-2 draw as our final Watford vs Leicester prediction.

Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Justin, Soyuncu, Evans, Pereira, Maddison, Albrighton, Barnes, Ndidi, Praet, Iheanacho.
