Everton vs Watford betting tips and predictions for the Premier League fixture on Saturday 17th August 2019 from Goodison Park. The home side will be looking to get their first three points of the season this weekend.
Everton were held to a 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace last weekend.
Watford were stunned at home by Brighton, losing 3-0.
Goals have been a real problem for Everton throughout their summer and that continued in their 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace last weekend. They did have chances to win the match but with new striker Moise Kean on the bench, they lacked a real cutting edge upfront. If the Italian youngster starts against Watford they Everton should run out winners in this tie. Both Richarlison and Sigurdsson had chances to win it at Selhurst Park last weekend but they also needed a couple of good saves from Jordan Pickford to keep Palace out at the other end.
Watford were thumped 3-0 at home to Brighton last weekend in a result that not many people saw coming. We called the game completely wrong in our Premier League betting tips as many tipsters did. They will not put in as bad a performance this weekend but there us an underlying rivalry between these two teams given that former Watford manager Marco Silva and star player Richarlison now both wear the Royal blue of Everton.
We’re predicting an Everton win in this game and it should be straightforward. If Moise Kean is in the Everton line-up we’ll also recommend having a bet on him to score in the match, but check the team news before betting on that11/8 punt.
Everton to win – 7/10
Draw – 11/4
Watford to win – 15/4
Both teams to score – 4/6
