Swansea – Watford is a typical Premier League game. Boring on paper, when you think that you have clashes like Chelsea –Man United in the weekend, but surely entertaining if you choose to watch it.
Both sides think “we really must win this game”, so they will throw everything they have at each other for the three points – let’s see who we think will come on top.
Swansea City vs Watford – 22/10/2016
Betting Odds: Swansea 2.37 or 11/8 Draw 3.30 or 23/10 Watford 3.30 or 23/10
After seasons in which they proved they are one of the good teams in the league, Swansea finds themselves plummeting this time around – although the quality of their squad is clearly up to standards. Their only victory was away at Burnley on Day 1, and the only other point they won in the PL this year was against Chelsea.
The rest were all defeats, but we can find some excuses for these results – they haven’t met lots of similar-stature clubs and played almost entirely big clubs. A home game against Watford is one in which they will want to turn their tides around.
Meanwhile, apart from being the definition of inconsistency, Watford have managed some pretty good results. The 3-1 win over United is still in everyone’s minds, and they got another 3 points last weekend thanks to a 1-0 away win against Middlesbrough.
Their objective for the game is rather simple: profit that Swansea is in terrible form and win at least a point, which will bring them closer to that 40-point mark which means relegation is no longer a possibility.
Swansea vs Watford Betting Tips
We’d also like to steer clear of outright winners or losers for this game, because really, anything can happen. We actually think betting on a draw is a good idea here.
Along with that, we expect yellow cards to be conceded in the game and no more than 3 goals scored, but even betting on the number of goals is risky – we can see anything from 0-0 to 4-3 in this game. Over 3,5 yellow cards is probably the way to go here.
