After a surprise draw against West Brom, the league leaders will look to return to winning ways as they head to Watford to play their next game in the English Premier League. This game is the perfect opportunity for the visiting team to build their lead against their competitors and give themselves a bit of breathing space as we head toward the last stages of this season’s Premier League calendar.

Watford will know that they will have their work cut out for them. This team has been good this season but unfortunately inconsistency has caused them to suffer. A middle of table finish is destined for this side and I think that they will be happy with a draw here. That being said, I think even a draw might be too much for Watford since their opposition are on a mission and are simply a much better team than them.

Leicester City on the other side of the coin will know that they can win this game if they play well. This team has been on a fairytale run and having gotten this far, it will be tragic to see them not get there. I am sure all football fans want this team to win the league and I think winning here is a big part in them doing so. They will know that there is a high chance that Spurs will drop points to Arsenal so winning here will give them a big lead so I am expecting a lot from them.

As far as betting is concerned, I think that the best thing to do is to bet on the outright result. We are getting a great price on Leicester City and I think that we have to take it. This team is quality and at 2.5 it will be loss not to bet on them. I think this is a safe bet and I think we should get it easily.

Pick:
Leicester City
