Odds: Watford 8/1, Draw 17/4, Man City 3/10

Kick Off: 1500, 16/09/2017

Stadium: Vicarage Road

Manchester City romped to a 5-0 win over Watford at Vicarage Road in May and are fancied to prove a class apart there again this weekend.

However, the Hornets have looked more of a threat going forward this term and this game does come three days after the Blues’ Champions League trip to Feyenoord.

That makes us lean towards taking 7/4 for an away win and both teams to score in our Watford vs Man City betting predictions.

A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds

Watford’s willingness to have a go under Marco Silva was rewarded with two long-range strikes giving them victory at Southampton last weekend.

Abdoulaye Doucoure put the Hornets ahead and both he and Nathaniel Chalobah have added some good intent in behind Andre Gray and Richarlison.

“We’re unbeaten with eight points from four games, so it’s a fantastic start to the season,” fellow scorer Daryl Janmaat told the club’s official website.

“We are playing with a lot of confidence at the moment. We have a good team, some good signings, a lot of strength in the team and pace up front.

“I think we can threaten a lot of teams with the way we are playing and we can have a great season.”

Looking at the Watford vs Man City odds, we reckon the Hornets can play their part in an entertaining encounter and like 29/10 for the visitors to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1.

A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds

Manchester City benefitted from the dismissal of Sadio Mane when thrashing Liverpool 5-0 but they were still hugely impressive going forward that day.

Kevin De Bruyne’s vision and passing skills helped to carve open the Reds while Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero looked to be developing a genuine partnership.

When you can then bring on a player with the pace of Leroy Sane just as defenders are tiring, it really spells trouble for opponents.

The Blues had suffered from some slow starts before that rout but can now kick on and show their class.

Having been 4-0 up at the break here last season, 17/20 for the visitors to lead at half-time and full-time warrants a place in our Watford vs Man City betting tips.
