This is a difficult Premier League in which to make a betting prediction. Watford are quite a decent football team and are clearly better under Nigel Pearson than their league position suggests, although they are still in a perilous position despite some bright performances.

Team news | League Table | Odds

This will be the third Hornets’ match since the restart and it comes hard on the heels of a clash at Burnley which doesn’t provide a good deal of recovery time, with Pearson potentially starting to rotate his squad and we could see players such as Nathaniel Chalobah and Danny Welbeck involved in this clash.

Similarly, Ralph Hasenhuttl will be reluctant to continue fielding Danny Ings in every match considering that the striker has had a fair share of injury problems, while the Austrian might also look to field the likes of Che Adams and Sofiane Boufal and that could reduce the chance of many goals being scored.

Indeed, we’re happy to look at the odds about Under 2.5 Goals on the basis that players will be having trouble to acclimatise to the hectic fixture schedule as the Premier League looks to get the season completed in a short space of time.

Watford will continue to keep things defensively tight and hope to pick up enough points to keep their heads above the relegation zone, while the Saints will gladly take a draw from this clash and are one of the few teams who have little to play for.

One slight concern from a betting perspective is that the visitors don’t tend to “do” draws considering that only two of their games on the road have finished all square, although we feel they won’t have as much freedom as they were allowed at Carrow Road recently.
