Watford vs Crystal Palace betting tips
Watford had Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis to thank after the Nigerian’s goal was enough to bag three points for the Hornets away at Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa at the weekend.
Despite the great performance and a much-needed win, Watford remain in 18th place in the Premier League table, with just 18 points from 24 games. Hodgson’s side remains in the relegation places, but the Villa win at least ensures that Watford remains four points behind Newcastle in 17th place.
Safety is still within touching distance for the Hornets, but they’ll need to improve on their recent EPL record of five points from the last 15 available if they hope to stay up, and fans will be hoping they can consolidate last week’s win against the Villains with another three points back at Vicarage Road vs Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace.
Much like Watford, Palace have struggled in the EPL in recent weeks and the tough defeat at home against Chelsea on Saturday means that the Eagles are now without a league win in six matches.
Patrick Vieira’s side has picked points in draws against mid-table/relegation rivals Brentford, Norwich, and Brighton in recent weeks, but, again like Watford, the Eagles need to begin turning some of these bore draws into wins if they are to ensure their Premier League survival.
Recent results between these two teams is a dead heat, with Watford winning twice, Palace winning twice and one draw. However, it is worth noting that Watford are unbeaten in six home games vs the Eagles, and that Palace have only managed one win on the road all season.
With both teams struggling for points and likely more desperate not to lose this game than they are to win it, we’re leaning towards a drawn game at Vicarage Road this evening. But, we’re going to add extra legs to our wager by selecting Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis to grab his second goal in as many games after a strong performance at Villa park last time out.
Using the excellent Bet Builder tool at bet365it’s possible to wager on Watford and Crystal Palace to draw with Dennis to score at any time at the enticing odds of 14/1meaning a £10.00 stake pays out £150.00 (inclusive of the stake).
