What Trueform says for Burnley vs Watford
Watford can be inconsistent but our Trueform ratings suggest they have the ability to beat Burnley on their best Premier League form.
The Hornets impressed when seeing off Newcastle late on last term and began the new season with a convincing victory over Brighton.
If Javier Gracia’s side can scale the same heights at Turf Moor, 11/5 for an away win is decent value for our first Burnley vs Watford prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley began their domestic campaign with a solid draw at Southampton and could even have pinched all three points but for a tight offside decision cancelling out Jack Cork’s strike.
However, the Clarets did fade late on at St Mary’s Stadium and former England goalkeeper Joe Hart had to be alert as the Saints piled on the pressure.
To be fair, Sean Dyche’s men had travelled almost 5,000 miles in four days, encompassing a goalless draw at Europa League foes Istanbul Basaksehir.
“Travelling makes it difficult and that’s the difference,” commented Dyche. “But they are working hard.”
Burnley will benefit from the second leg of that tie being at home but this is still another quick turn-around following a big match.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford were widely tipped to struggle this term after losing Richarlison to Everton but Roberto Pereyra went some way to filling that void with a double in the 2-0 defeat of Brighton.
The Argentinian met a Jose Holebas corner with a sweet volley 10 minutes before half-time and then curled a superb strike past Seagulls keeper Mat Ryan in the second period.
Hornets boss Gracia said: “We played really well, not only with the ball but without the ball, with quick reactions after losing it. We played as a team.
“We need to improve many things and it’s only three points, but starting this way is very important for the club, the players and the supporters.”
Watford are short on strength in depth but look a decent outfit at this time of the year when everyone is fit and fresh.
We’re adding 11/1 for a 2-1 away win to our Burnley vs Watford betting tips.
