Watford v Everton – Premier League Betting Guide: 24th Feb 2018

Both Watford, who are in 11th and Everton, who sit in 9th  in the Premier League look safe of any relegation worries this season so it should be a fairly comfortable run-in as we head into the final quarter of the 2017-18 campaign.

When the sides played at Goodison Park earlier this season that ended Everton 3-2 Watford, while that score line popped-up again in this fixture, but on that occasion it was Watford that won 3-2.

Therefore, a covering both 3-2 and 2-3 at 34.00 and 41.00 might not be a bad option, especially as Watford have conceded in 85% of their home games this season in the league – and in all of their last 7 in front of their home fans.

If we add in that Everton have also let in at least one goal in their last 7 matches too then it’s obvious both have a few defensive issues at the moment.

This is also backed-up when these teams meet with 9 of the last 11 head-to-heads seeing both sides score – this can be backed at 1.80 and looks great value to me.

Over 2.5 goals is another popular payout when these sides play – again, 9 of the last 11 clashes have seen 3+ goals scored so it’s surprising to see this option as the second favourite in the Overs/Unders market at 2.05.

The match betting favours Watford at 2.15, with the draw 3.25 and Everton 3.40, but be careful as there have been 2 DRAWS in the last 5 head-to-heads, while Everton have actually only lost 1 of their last 14 matches against Watford.

Watford’s Doucoure heads their scoring lists in the league and is 15.00 to score first or 6.00 anytime, while Everton’s Wayne Rooney, with 10 league goals is their main man – the former England man can be backed at 7.50 to score the game’s first goal, or 3.25 anytime.

With just 8 points on the road then Everton can’t be relied on too heavily here, while Watford actually sit third from bottom in just the home form table.

With that in mind the draw looks the obvious call and is probably the better value too, but we’ll stick with both teams to score here at what looks a tasty 1.80, while don’t forget to have a very small saver on 3-2 (both ways) as this has been a very popular payout in recent clashes.

Best Bet: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @1.80
