Bournemouth v Watford Betting Tips

Watford put seven past Blackpool in their last match and their goalscoring antics have been well documented, but they do have the tendency to start slowly and the problem they have often faced is having no plan B. Whichever plan it was in the second 45 on Saturday, they need to stick to it again!

Bournemouth haven’t been at their best recently, they have struggled to score goals in their usual swashbuckling grandeur. They were surprise victims of a rare Leeds win and also lost in the FA Cup to Aston Villa when many people would have had money on the shock.

The signing of Ben Watson allowed Watford to push higher up and they exploited Blackpool’s lack of width so the Cherrie’s full backs need to be vigilant throughout the 90 minutes.

Watford tails will be up and I can see them getting something here. Bournemouth have been a little out of sorts, but won’t be easy to penetrate. A Draw No Bet selection on Watford might be the way to go and that is our full-time match prediction.

Our first Bournemouth v Watford betting tip is Watford draw no bet is available at 2/1 with Bet365.


It is difficult to see this game not featuring goals. We have seen these sort of matches before and they occasionally throw up a 0-0 scoreline. But, with the attacking talent on offer, I just can’t see there not being goals. Watford conceded twice to Blackpool, a team who have only scored two goals in a match on three occasions previously this season. Both came from defensive errors as well, so they are prone to conceding, particularly with Heurelo Gomes in goal having the occasional rush of blood to the head.

Bournemouth have seen over 2.5 goals feature in 8 of their 13 home games this season whilst the same has occurred in 7 of Watford’s 13 away games. Neither will make an attempt to doggedly defend and I think over 2.5 goals looks likely to happen.

Over 2.5 goals is available at 8/11 with Boylesports and that’s our second football betting tip for Bournemouth v Watford.


It’s easy to tip a player who has scored four goals in their previous outing, but I am going to continue unabashed. Odion Ighalo looked incredibly hungry for goals and he appeared in the right places at the right time. (I should know, I’m a Blackpool fan, I was there!) If he gets the service from Troy Denney and Matej Vydra, the latter who looked a different player following his goal, he can net once again.

He might not score the opening goal, but he is likely to score during the 90 minutes so for our Bournemouth v Watford prediction we are backing Odion Ighalo to score anytime at 10/3 with Bet365.
