Watford Preview – Can Watford win back-to-back?

A crucial 2-1 win at home during the week against relegation rivals, Norwich City, handed Watford a precious three points towards their Premier League survival bid, and The Hornets will be at their Vicarage Road ground again for this Saturday’s lunchtime clash against Newcastle United as the hosts look to pull further away from the bottom three.

That victory over relegation-threatened Norwich City ended a five-match sequence without a win in the top flight and also handed Watford a vital lifeline, but although they now sit fourth from bottom and just three points above the relegation zone, the London club are still far from safe.

In addition, despite also recording a 3-0 win over title winners, Liverpool, it’s still just two wins out of their last 12 matches overall so all three points for the hosts here look far from guaranteed; instead, the goals market appeals in this one as 11 of Watford’s 17 home matches have produced over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Newcastle United Preview – Can Newcastle produce a response?

Newcastle United’s solid run of six matches without defeat in the Premier League was left in tatters after Wednesday night’s heavy 5-0 loss away from home at Manchester City, so the visitors will be keen to bounce back against a fragile looking Watford outfit in Saturday’s lunchtime clash at Vicarage Road.

Prior to this recent heavy loss, The Magpies had seemingly been on their way to achieving a top half finish to the season under manager, Steve Bruce, following wins against Southampton, Sheffield United and Bournemouth, the latter being a 4-1 win on the south coast and Newcastle would love a repeat of this scoreline against Watford here.

However, form away from home has been Newcastle United’s achilles heel in recent times as The Magpies have picked up just two away wins out of their last 9 matches on their travels amidst an overall away record of 5-2-10 17/35, so the goal angle looks attractive here with 9 of Newcastle’s 17 away matches also resulting in over 2.5 goals.
