    Watford v Southampton Betting Predictions and Match Preview

    The Hornets currently sit tenth in the Premier League table, some five points and seven places above Southampton, but both teams remain very much in the relegation picture in what is proving to be an intriguing campaign.

    Although Marco Silva’s charges have not exactly been covering themselves in glory in recent times, three wins in eight top-flight home games is enough to ensure that they start as 52% favourites for victory against opponents who are winless in eight league trips.

    Last season’s score

    This turned out to be one of the matches of the season last time around, with the Saints running out 4-3 winners at Vicarage Road thanks to two goals from Nathan Redmond and further efforts from Dusan Tadic and Manolo Gabbiadini.

    A lack of confidence in both camps means that it is hard to envisage a repeat of that wonderful display of attacking football, with 1-0 (12% chance), 1-1 (12% chance), 2-0 (10% chance) and 2-1 (10% chance) installed as the four most likely scorelines by our KickOff predictive algorithm.

    Top betting tips and predictions

    Having found the net at a rate of just 0.9 goals per game over the course of their previous 20 Premier League matches, Southampton could hardly be described as the great entertainers, so we expect under 2.5 goals (52% chance) to be served up for the sixth time in their last nine fixtures.

    Troy Deeney (13% chance) and Andre Gray (12% chance) have both been on target recently, but it is Richarlison (12% chance) who tends to be involved in the Hornets’ best attacking work, so any of this trio are more than capable of opening the scoring here.
