What Trueform says for Newcastle vs Watford
Watford have regularly achieved higher Trueform ratings than Newcastle on our chart and the gap has really increased over the past couple of weeks.
The Hornets should be high on confidence following back-to-back wins over Wolves and Huddersfield and have a great record against the Magpies.
They are seeking a sixth straight head-to-head success and 19/10 for an away win seems great value for our opening Newcastle vs Watford prediction.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle managed to halt a run of three straight defeats when drawing 0-0 at Southampton, but it was hardly an encouraging display from United.
Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka made fine saves to deny Mohamed Elyounoussi, Jack Stephens and Nathan Redmond, while Shane Long missed a late sitter for Saints as the Magpies somehow escaped with a point.
It was enough to lift Newcastle off the foot of the table, but they remain without a win in their opening 10 games, with all three of their points coming from goalless stalemates.
Rafael Benitez insisted after the St Mary’s Stadium display: “I have to take the positives; a point and a clean sheet away.
“In terms of work rate and team spirit, we can’t complain about that. We have to be a little bit better on the ball but both teams were anxious.”
However, United have only scored in one of their last five matches and will be nervous again here after suffering five straight home defeats.
Last Newcastle line-up: Dubravka, Dummett, Lascelles, Fernandez, Yedlin, Shelvey, Diame, Ritchie, Kenedy, Muto, Perez.
Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark will be absent after being laid low by a bug earlier this week.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
After starting the season with a quartet of Premier League wins, Watford suffered a blip when only picking up one point in the next four matches, but they now look on a roll again.
A 2-0 triumph at high-flying Wolves got the Hornets back on track and they built on that by beating Huddersfield 3-0 at Vicarage Road.
Roberto Pereyra and Gerard Deulofeu put Javi Gracia’s side in control early on and Isaac Success wrapped up victory in the 85th minute.
The 22-year-old Nigerian forward has taken a while to make his mark with Watford, spending time on loan at Malaga last term, but now seems well placed to kick on with his career.
“Isaac was already working very hard before the start of pre-season, before coming back to us,” said Gracia.
“So when we started to train he was fit and ready to play and he has been waiting for his moment, his chance to play.
“And now he’s showing his level. I don’t think there’s a secret or something special; it’s only hard work.”
Let’s add 11/4 for Success to score again at St James’ Park to our Newcastle vs Watford betting tips.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Mariappa, Masina, Cathcart, Kiko, Doucoure, Hughes, Capoue, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Success.
England midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah is set to return to the Watford squad from a minor knee problem, but Troy Deeney remains a doubt as he recovers from a hamstring injury.
Defenders Sebastian Prodl (leg) and Daryl Janmaat (knee) are also still sidelined, along with midfielder Tom Cleverley (Achilles).
