Liverpool vs Watford 17 March 2018: EPL Soccer Preview and Predictions

Liverpool will be at home as they take on Watford in what is a big game for both clubs. Watford has a chance of making the Europa League while Liverpool still needs to ensure Champions League qualification so I am expecting a committed effort from both sets of players.

Watford have had a good season and they will be happy that there is no chance of relegation. The Hornets are filled with talent and the team has built itself well. This weekend they will be playing a very hard game and although they are talented enough to challenge Liverpool, it will be interesting to see how much they challenge the home side.

Liverpool had a bad loss to Manchester United last weekend as the Reds failed to compete against their old rivals. This weekend they will look to bounce back because it is important for Liverpool that they don’t drop points. This Liverpool side is filled with talent and although Salah and Mane didn’t play well one week ago, I am expecting them to bounce back. Watford will be a challenge since the Hornets are a good side but I am expecting the Reds to be good enough to win at home.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a poor price betting on Liverpool to win outright and as a result, it is an option which I am suggesting that we avoid. The best bet is the over 2.5 goals. At home, Salah and Mane normally score many goals and due to that reason, the over 2.5 goals seems like a very safe and profitable bet.
