Reason For Watford vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips

Watford’s quest for a 7th place finish in the Premier League hit a stumbling block last weekend as a 13 minute hat trick from Raheem Sterling resigned them to a 3-1 defeat at Manchester City. Despite this setback, so far this can be classed as a very good season for The Hornets.

They are still only a point behind Wolves as they search for a 7th place finish that could secure Europa League football, but there is another way into the continental scene. The FA Cup now contains just two of the Premier League Big Six, meaning this represents an excellent opportunity for the remaining teams to add some silverware to their collections.

Javi Gracia’s side are in excellent form overall as well. They have lost just four of their last 18 matches in all competitions, and all of these came against Big Six opposition. Not only that, but three of them came away from home, and they have lost just one competitive game to teams outside the top six at Vicarage Road this season.

Crystal Palace aren’t exactly in bad shape though. The Eagles may have lost against Brighton last time out, but they have won five, drawn two, and lost two of their last nine outings in all competitions.

Surprisingly, their form away from Selhurst Park is actually much better than when playing in front of their home crowd. In fact, they have only lost one of their last seven matches on the road, and that was a narrow 4-3 defeat against Liverpool. Five of these seven matches have ended in victory too, including a stunning win at the Etihad Stadium.

One thing that both teams have in common though is a weakness at the back. Crystal Palace have conceded in 11 of their last 14 away matches in all competitions, while Watford have shipped at least one goal in 10 of their 14 home games this term.

Similarly, both are pretty useful going forward as well. The Hornets have scored in all but three of their home games this term and Palace have matched that in their away matches, including scoring in each of their last nine trips away. This makes backing Both Teams to Score look a very good option on Saturday, and we’re going for that along with a tight 1-1 stalemate for our correct score prediction.
