What Trueform says for Liverpool vs Watford
Watford are doing well at home but had their limitations exposed at Arsenal last weekend and face another daunting away test when taking on Liverpool at Anfield.
The Hornets have not scored on any of their last five road trips, while the Reds are unbeaten on Merseyside this term.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool were undone by the power of Romelu Lukaku and the pace of Marcus Rashford when going down 2-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford.
However, the Reds rightly felt aggrieved at having a couple of strong penalty shouts turned down.
“I think if we managed a draw, no one could have a big argument about that,” said Jurgen Klopp.
“If you are in Manchester you need a little bit of luck or help with right decisions, not wrong decisions. United were more lucky in these situations and that is the result we have to take.”
Liverpool dropped down to fourth after that defeat, but Klopp will hope for an immediate response from his team.
The Reds’ big three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were impressive in recent home wins over West Ham and Newcastle.
Looking at the Liverpool vs Watford odds, we reckon the best value in the goalscorer markets lies in following Mane, who is 4/1 to break the deadlock and Evens to net at anytime.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Three straight wins at Vicarage Road have been enough to keep Watford just in the top half of the table, but the pickings have been slim in away fixtures.
Sunday’s 3-0 drubbing by the Gunners at Emirates Stadium made it just one point earned from the last eight road trips in this competition.
Troy Deeney’s penalty miss summed up the Hornets’ display and Javi Gracia may be glad to get this match out of the way before facing a much kinder schedule after the international break.
“You need to work a lot to try and beat this kind of team,” midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure told the club website. “I think it is a lesson for us for the next time.”
The visitors will be determined to avoid a repeat of last season’s 6-1 drubbing at this venue, so we’re expecting them to try and keep things tight.
Whether they can contain the Reds is another matter, with 6/1 for a 3-0 home win getting the nod in our Liverpool vs Watford betting tips.
