Manchester City v Watford – Premier League Betting Guide: Saturday 9th March 2019

Saturday 9th March 2019
Manchester City v Watford 17:30

Man City moved back to the top of the Premier League last weekend with a narrow win at Bournemouth, while their nearest challengers – Liverpool – were held away to Everton.

There is only a point between the two but with City at home to Watford in the 5:30pm Saturday game then they can extend that lead to 4 points with a victory here – Liverpool take on Burnley at home on the Sunday.

City and Watford met earlier in the season and that resulted in a 1-2 win for the Citizens, while the repeat of this fixture last term saw City win 3-1.

The match betting sees City as the short-pried favourites to get the job one at 1.14, with the Draw 7.50 and Watford a massive 17.00.

In fact, did you know two of the last three head-to-heads saw City win 2-0, so a repeat of this score at 8.00 might be something to have on your radar too.

City normally score plenty when facing Watford too – they’ve netted a massive 18 goals in their last 5 vs the Hornets, plus all of the last four clashes went OVER 2.5 GOALS – this is on offer at 1.33, with Over 3.5 goals 1.80.

Sergio Aguero is City’s main man in this fixture too – he’s scored 6 goals in the last 4 head-to-heads.

Overall another easy-looking game for the league leaders so we expect them to take the full three points here and step up the pressure on Liverpool in the title race. We’ll opt for the popular 2-0 scoreline, plus also go with last year’s 3-1.

BEST BET: 2-0 @8.00

BEST BET: 3-1 @ 12.00
