Burnley vs Watford Betting Odds and Predictions
How does Burnley cope with the Manchester debacle?
The eleventh place in the Premier League hits the sixteenth of the table and yet before the game Burnley vs. Watford’s odds indicate that the guest and thus the poorly placed club have a better chance of winning.
This is partly due to the debacle that Burnley had to cope with, but also to the fact that Watford is right in the middle of the fight against relegation and urgently needs every point. In any case, the omens promise an exciting game.
As already indicated, Burnley has to find himself again after the 0: 5 at Manchester City. The actually quite solid team had to digest this shock, while Watford gained plus points against Leicester.
Overall, the guests lack consistency this season, Burnley has been shaky lately. Therefore, before the game Burnley vs. Watford our prediction that both teams will score at least once.
Burnley – Statistics & current form
A closer look at the Premier League table reveals that Burnley is in safe midfield. However, this is by no means to be assessed negatively, because before each season the club is first of all about relegation. With a proud eleven wins in 30 games, the team is right where it is now.
Before the Manchester City game, many questions were unanswered. Where does Burnley stand, what condition is the team in after the break? Now the game was lost 0: 5 and everything went a little too quickly for the team of coach Sean Dyche. But such a game can happen against the Citizens, which is why the actual test is only against Watford.
Burnley wants to find back to old stability
At the 0: 5 in Manchester it was noticed that Burnley had to fight with gaps in his own defensive when the opponent picked up the pace. That was very unusual because the Clarets had conceded just three goals in seven games and met Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham, among others.
This suggests that the automatisms on the defensive did not work, that there was a lack of rehabilitation and rhythm. In a few days, these components will be difficult to manufacture, which is why Burnley vs. Watford our tip is that both teams to score at least once.
The question now will be how trainer Sean Dyche will approach this game in terms of lineup. On the one hand there was only a three day break and the team was not playing well, on the other hand lack of freshness should not be a problem now. Chris Wood should replace Watford’s recently somewhat wooden Vydra, the more balanced Pieters will probably start in the back left.
Burnley probable lineup:
➤ Pope – Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters – Cork, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil – Rodriguez, Wood

Watford – Statistics & current form
The news that Burnley did not have a good start to the rest of the season will be very much heard in Watford. The Hornets urgently need points in the fight against relegation and are only just in front of the first relegation zone.
Coach changes, system changes – Watford has completed the entire program this season to find a remedy for the negative series. Only in the games around Christmas, when the team was without defeat six times in a row, did it succeed.
The current form is average. Five points have been earned from the last five games, but the 1-1 draw against Leicester gave them confidence after the break. Some good pinpricks were made forward, but there was wobble on the defensive as soon as Leicester picked up the pace.
Since these wobbles run through the entire season, Burnley vs Watford our prediction that both teams will be successful in this game at least once.
Watford has to move abroad
Watford’s lead on relegation is only one point before matchday 31. In any case, it is very narrow in the relegation zone. West Ham and Bournemouth are one point behind, Aston Villa two points behind Watford.
In order to collect the necessary points as quickly as possible, Watford has to improve abroad. Only two victories could be achieved abroad, the point average is 0.67. For comparison: At home Watford can build on average at 1.20 points.
A look at the rest of the program shows how important points are in games like the one against Burnley. Among other things, Watford will still have to deal with Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea in the remaining weeks. It will be anything but easy.
However, the personnel situation is positive. Daryl Janmaat is missing, as is Gerard Deulofeu, otherwise Watford coach Nigel Pearson can fall back on all players in the squad.
Probable lineup of Watford:
➤ Foster – Kiko Femenia, Kabasele, Dawson, Masina – Hughes, Capoue, Doucoure, Pereyra, Sarr – Deeney
