One of the more interesting games in this weekend in the Premier League takes place between two teams which battle to avoid relegation. Middlesbrough and Watford will both want to win this game because points against fellow relegation candidates are golden in their quest to play in the Premier League next year as well. And truth be told, it’s hard to see them gather points from many other teams this season.
Middlesbrough vs Watford – 16/10/2016
Let’s start with Watford : 2 wins, 2 draws, 3 losses, a 12-13 goal difference, currently sitting at 11th place in the standings. They come after a 2-2 draw against fellow strugglers Bournemouth, a surprising loss against Burnley and two awesome wins, 3-1 against United and 4-2 over West Ham.
Their away form this season has been pretty good, and with Deeney also in fine form, they should be able to avoid defeat in this game against Boro. It’s also worth mentioning that they greatly enjoy playing counter-attacking football, which suits this game perfectly.
On the other hand, Boro still sits on a single win this season, against Sunderland on Day 2. Since then, they’ve drawn twice (West Brom and West Ham) and lost another 3 clashes, although they’ve scored in each of these 3 games.
Home games against teams like Watford are the perfect opportunity for them to gather points, but their home fans are starting to get demanding: they haven’t seen their team win a home game since their Championship days.
Middlesbrough vs Watford Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, the game seems very well-balanced, but we will go with Watford to avoid losing. X2 here is a great idea for a value bet, and it can turn very easily into a safe one as well.
We do expect at least a goal in the game, but more than that we expect at least 3 or 4 yellow cards since both teams enjoy playing strong physical football. Good luck!
