What Trueform says for Newcastle vs Watford

Watford are not the most consistent of teams but our chart shows they are capable of hitting heights Newcastle cannot reach when everything goes right.

The Hornets recaptured the form of last month’s win over Arsenal when outplaying West Ham last weekend and have the players to enjoy the wide-open spaces of St James’ Park.

We’re kicking off our Newcastle vs Watford betting predictions by taking good odds of 12/5 for an away victory.

A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds

Newcastle played some nice football going forward when losing 4-1 at Manchester United, even taking the lead when Dwight Gayle finished of a well-worked move and then going close to making it 2-0 through Jacob Murphy.

“I am proud of my players because we knew that would be a difficult game,” said Rafael Benitez. “The reality is that for 30 minutes we played well against top-class players.”

However, that was a third straight defeat for the Magpies, who lost to Bournemouth in their last home game, and their only win in seven matches came against basement dwellers Crystal Palace.

The pressure will be on the hosts to attack here and that could lead to an open contest, so 11/2 for the Hornets to prevail and both teams to score stands out from the Newcastle vs Watford odds.

A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds

Watford put in another eye-catching display when brushing aside West Ham 2-0 at Vicarage Road, with hot prospect Richarlison netting in a fifth Premier League fixture.

That triumph pushed the Hornets back up to eighth in the table, just as it looked like their early-season momentum had stalled with three straight defeats.

“That was just what we needed,” beamed goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, who made a superb double save just before half-time. “We needed to avoid the mistakes we made in the last few games.”

In their last couple of away matches, Watford led 2-1 at Chelsea before losing 4-2 and were 2-0 up at Everton only to go down 3-2, so we’re hoping this talented team sees the whole game out this time.

The Hornets beat the Magpies 2-1 at home and away when United were last at this level a couple of years ago, so 11/1 for a repeat of that result will do for our Newcastle vs Watford betting tips.

Add on the exciting Richarlison to score first in a win by that margin and you have a 40/1 scorecast.
