Burnley will be at home this weekend as they host the Hornets. This is a game that Watford will feel that they can win while it is a game that Burnley will be thinking that they should be winning so I am excited to see what this game will produce.

Burnley relies on their home ground to get result since this club has incredible fan support. This team sits in 7th position and the fans are hugely responsible for that. It is quite amazing how hard it is to visit Burnley as an away team but that is something which the fans has been developing well since their were promoted to the Premier League a few seasons ago.

On the other hand, Watford are my value team of the season. This side has improved drastically under their manager, Silva, and they are only getting better. Most of the top teams don’t fancy playing the Hornets and looking at their performances, it's easy to see why. This team is organized at the back, they have very creative midfielders and are gifted with strikers who know how to find the back of the net. This is a very desirable combination and it has been giving them lots of success.

With all that taken into consideration, I am going to go for an away win. While Burnley are at home and they play very well at home, Watford seem to have something special about them and in their current form, I am going to go with them. We are getting an exceptionally good price on this wager so I think that it is the best bet that we can make for this game.

 

Pick:
Watford
