Watford v Everton Betting Predictions and Match Preview

Watford host Everton in matchday 28 of the Premier League on Saturday 24th February, 5:30pm at Vicarage Road. The hosts currently sit in 11th place in the table having lost against West Ham United 2-0 last time out, while the visitors are in 9th after their 3-1 win against Crystal Palace.

After all of the fuss surrounding Marco Silva earlier in the season, the Portuguese manager will not be in either dugout for this encounter, with a draw (27% chance) seeming likely in what is a clash between two teams who have triumphed just four times in 15 home games and only once in 20 trips respectively at this level of late.

Last Season's Score
The most recent meeting between these clubs at Vicarage Road proved to be a thrilling encounter, with Stefano Okaka and Romelu Lukaku each on target twice in a 3-2 Watford victory, and a repeat of that scoreline is given a 3% chance of happening by our Kickoff predictive algorithm.

Team News For Watford
Javi Gracia has had to make do and mend defensively since taking charge of the Hornets, so he will be hoping to get one or two bodies back, with Kiko Femenia and Miguel Britos thought to be close to returning.

Team News For Everton
Eliaquim Mangala picked up a knee injury against Crystal Palace last time out and the Manchester City loanee now looks set for an extended spell on the sidelines.

First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
Troy Deeney (14% chance) and Oumar Niasse (11% chance) are expected to lead the line for their respective clubs and therefore begin amongst the favourites to open the scoring, though Gerard Deulofeu (10% chance) will be keen to impress against his former employers.

This clash will take place at Vicarage Road at 5:30pm on Saturday 24th February and will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1. Highlights will be shown on Match of the Day later that evening at 10:30pm.
