What Trueform says for Brighton vs Watford
Brighton and Watford both surrendered winning positions when losing in midweek and may look to go back to basics when they meet at Amex Stadium.
The Hornets are four places and seven points higher up the Premier League table, but Albion do tend to fare better on home turf.
That all points to 11/5 for a draw being a solid Brighton vs Watford prediction.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton led Fulham 2-0 at half-time thanks to a Glenn Murray double but collapsed in the second period to eventually go down 4-2.
The Seagulls have now lost three matches on the spin in the Premier League for the first time, although the previous two defeats were against Liverpool and Manchester United.
Murray told the club website: “We’ve lost the game in disappointing circumstances, but it’s about putting it to bed as soon as possible and we’ve got an opportunity to do so on Saturday.
“Everyone reacts differently and no-one is more disappointed than me, but I know that you can’t dwell on things in the Premier League.”
Murray is now in double figures for the season and 7/2 he opens the scoring again here has obvious appeal from the Brighton vs Watford odds.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Bong, Duffy, Dunk, Montoya, Stephens, Gross, March, Propper, Locadia, Murray.
Brighton duo Bernardo and Alireza Jahanbakhsh could be involved after being absent due to a hamstring injury and the Asian Cup respectively, but winger Jose Izquierdo remains out with a knee problem.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford went ahead away to Tottenham via Craig Cathcart’s first-half header but conceded twice in the final 10 minutes to fall to a 2-1 defeat.
Javi Gracia said: “We have missed a very good chance to get points against a very good team like Tottenham.
“They dominated the game with more possession and some chances, but after scoring first, we worked a lot, defended well.
“It is tough, it is difficult to accept, but it is a good sign that the team is very disappointed, because the team is very ambitious and demanding of themselves.”
The Hornets had been in good form prior to that setback, losing just one of their previous 10 league and cup matches.
However, only Spurs, Chelsea and Liverpool have picked up maximum points at Amex Stadium this term and Watford aren’t in that class, so Gracia would no doubt settle for a share of the spoils here.
Let’s finish off our Brighton vs Watford betting tips by taking 11/2 for a 1-1 stalemate.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Janmaat, Mariappa, Cathcart, Holebas, Cleverley, Hughes, Capoue, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Deeney.
Watford are likely to still be without midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure due to a knee injury.
Kiko Femenia (hamstring) and Sebastian Prodl (knee) are also sidelined, while fit-again midfielder Tom Cleverley may be rested as he continues to build match sharpness.
