Watford vs Liverpool Betting Tips

Watford’s home form this season has catapulted them into early contention for a European spot which is far more than their fans could have hoped for before the season began. In fact, if only home results were taken into consideration, Javi Gracia’s men would be above the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham in the Premier League table. They do score goals in front of their own fans, as I expect Liverpool to find out – and the visitors’ attack requires no real introduction. Both teams to score looks nailed on for our Watford vs Liverpool predictions, then, with Betfred paying 4/5.

It was about this time last year that Mo Salah began to really hit his stride and post the sort of ridiculous scoring figures that have prompted many to question whether it would be possible to replicate that return this season. The Egyptian scored in Liverpool’s recent win against Fulham and has started to resemble the same player who stormed to the Golden Boot during the 2017-18 campaign. Sure, it’s not a bold shout, but you’ll struggle to find a more worthy anytime goalscorer selection than Salah this weekend. He’s a best price of 10/11 with Betway.

Watford vs Liverpool Preview, Stats and Head to Head

If Liverpool are serious about competing with the likes of Manchester City at the table’s summit, then these are the games they need to take maximum points from. Reds fans would do well to treat this fixture with a degree of caution however, as Watford are no longer the pushovers they were once perceived to be.

You can get odds of just over 1/2 on the visitors heading back up north with another victory in the bag, and this will certainly be a prominent feature in Premier League accumulators this weekend. Watford won’t be a 6/1 shot at home too many times this season, though, and it remains to be seen whether bookies have priced this up correctly.

Watford vs Liverpool Team Goals Prediction

Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool only really have one way of playing although their investment in defensive players has finally started to pay dividends from a goals conceded perspective. Only Chelsea and Manchester City have hit the back of the net with greater regularity than Liverpool so far and you get the feeling that once they hit top gear a few teams could be in for a thrashing. That could be this weekend or another time in the near future, but my gut tells me they could steamroll Watford here. I’m backing them to score two or more goals to complete these Watford vs Liverpool predictions which, at 8/13 with Coral, could be better included in a multiple bet.
