Watford vs Manchester United 21 Nov 2015: EPL Preview and Predictions
21 November 2015/ 0715ET
The International break is now over and the first game back in the English Premier League will see Manchester United travel to Watford. This match may not be the most interesting of this weekend’s encounters but if we take a good look there is some good value in this match.
Watford go into this match as massive underdogs and it is understandable why. This team is simply not as strong as Manchester United and against quality opposition such as Arsenal they have offer no resistance. I don’t think anybody expects Watford to win here but perhaps the fans would like to see their side make life hard for the Red Devils.

Manchester United on the other hand have done a lot worse than what most people would have expected. This team spent big in the summer and Van Gaal was allowed to build a team around the players he wanted. A lot of people expected United to be contenders for the title this season but so far I don’t see that being the case. This team will definitely make the top 4 but they will not win. That being said they should coast home against Watford and honestly this may be an opportunity for them to improve their goal difference. United have struggled to score as of late but perhaps that will change.
Overall I see a Manchester United win and the bookmakers agree so there is no real value in betting on the outright result. The value is this game may come if we look at the handicap. United have struggled to score goals but Watford are poor opposition. Man United (-1) is at 3.40 which looks good value. Although the Red Devils have not been scoring many goals, I see Manchester United winning by more than one goal here so that is my pick in this match.
