What Trueform says for West Ham vs Watford

Watford’s Trueform rating for Monday night’s 4-1 defeat of Chelsea was almost off the chart and they look worth backing to follow up at West Ham.

Plenty of sceptics will suggest that result was just a flash in the pan, but we’re taking a more positive view of what was a superb all-round display.

Anything like a repeat performance would make 2/1 for the Hornets look a gift in our West Ham vs Watford betting predictions.

A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds

West Ham’s six-match unbeaten run in the Premier League came to an end when they went down 3-1 at Brighton, despite Javier Hernandez helping them to go into half-time on level terms.

That result rounded off a turbulent week for the Hammers, with head of recruitment Tony Henry axed after comments made over African players.

Aaron Cresswell issued a rallying cry, declaring: “We need to stick together and pull in one direction now and go into every game and try to get maximum points. We need to keep pushing up.”

However, David Moyes must contend with a lengthy injury list after midfielder Pedro Obiang this week had a knee operation, with the likes of Marko Arnautovic, Manuel Lanzini and Andy Carroll already sidelined.

United have won only one of their last five top-flight fixtures at London Stadium and we like 10/1 for a 2-1 away victory from the West Ham vs Watford odds.

A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds

Watford finally rediscovered the form which saw them win six of their first 13 Premier League games this season when finishing strongly to crush Chelsea at Vicarage Road.

Javi Gracia’s arrival has been a fillip, but the capture of Gerard Deulofeu on loan from Barcelona could prove the real masterstroke judged on his performance against the Blues.

The winger won the penalty which Troy Deeney netted from, scored himself late on and troubled Chelsea all night with his pace and trickery on the ball.

“It is a massive win,” fellow scorer Darryl Janmaat told the club’s official website. “We needed three points and we did it, we played a great game.

“We pressed them really well. We had the belief we could win because we had a lot of energy, more than them, and that was the key.”

The Hornets, who beat West Ham at home in November, still look vulnerable at the back, but they could easily have hit Chelsea for six, with Richarlison alone twice going close.

We’re finishing off our West Ham vs Watford betting tips by taking 9/2 for an away win and both teams to score.
