What Trueform says for Bournemouth vs Watford
Bournemouth have lost eight of their last 10 Premier League games but have faced some tough fixtures and will hope to find Watford more conducive company.
The Cherries did beat Huddersfield and Brighton at Vitality Stadium last month and crushed the Hornets 4-0 at Vicarage Road in early October.
With the visitors suffering a dip in form since Christmas, 3/2 for a home victory is our initial Bournemouth vs Watford prediction.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth were thrashed 5-0 by Tottenham at Wembley on Boxing Day and then beaten 4-1 at Manchester United on Sunday.
Defender Charlie Daniels admitted: “It was the same old story with us in these past few weeks. Letting in silly goals we need to stop doing.
“We can’t concede goals and then start trying to play. It’s something which happened against Spurs and again on Sunday.”
However, he justifiably added: “We created a few chances at Old Trafford. If we took our chances, then it could have been a different game.”
On facing Watford next, Daniels declared: “It’s just got a little bit bigger. If we win that game at home, with the crowd behind us, things will start to look a bit rosier.”
The Cherries were sixth at the end of October and we can’t forget the way they hammered Watford on the road earlier that month.
Josh King bagged a brace at Vicarage Road and 2/1 for him to net at anytime here stands out from the Bournemouth vs Watford odds.
Last Bournemouth line-up: Begovic, S Cook, Ake, Daniels, Rico, Surman, Ibe, Stanislas, Brooks, Wilson, King.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford enjoyed wins over Cardiff and West Ham in the build-up to Christmas but have since been pegged back by losing to Chelsea and drawing with Newcastle, both on home turf.
Abdoulaye Doucoure came off the bench to salvage a 1-1 stalemate against the Magpies late on, but the Hornets looked disjointed after Javi Gracia rotated his squad by making six changes.
The Spaniard has pledged to again shuffle his pack here, stating: “Some changes we have to do for sure. I’m very happy with the players I have in the squad in this moment. With all of them.”
That is an understandable policy during such a busy period and may well stand Watford in good stead as the season progresses.
However, we fear it makes them vulnerable at the moment, so 5/2 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game is added to our Bournemouth vs Watford betting tips.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Janmaat, Mariappa, Masina, Cathcart, Hughes, Quina, Capoue, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Success.
Man Utd 4-1 BOURNEMOUTH – Nathan Ake
WATFORD 1-1 Newcastle – Abdoulaye Doucoure
Head-to-head: Watford 0-4 Bournemouth, Watford 2-2 Bournemouth, Bournemouth 0-2 Watford, Bournemouth 2-2 Watford, Watford 2-2 Bournemouth
