Southampton vs Watford 9 September 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Soccer | Southampton (8th) Watford (7th)

Southampton takes on Watford at St Mary’s Stadium this weekend in the English Premier League. This is a game that is between two of the teams that are in the middle of the pack in terms of quality so I am expecting a very evenly matched game come match day.

Watford has been very impressive this season and it shows that this team is capable of doing very well. This side is very exciting going forward and as a result, they are full of goals. In addition that, this team is also pretty solid in the midfield and the defense. As a result, I think they will be very good in this game.

On the other hand, I think Southampton are a side that is on the decrease. This side has lost some of their best players over the transfer windows and it seems like they have not built well this season. That being said, there is still some talent in the side many goal scoring options in the likes of Shane Long. With that in mind, there are many problems in the defense and there are creative issues with their midfielders. As a result, I think they will struggle to win and get the three points at home this weekend.

All in all, I am going to predict a draw. Watford is a good side but Southampton seems to manage to survive, especially at home. We are getting a really good price on this bet and as a result that is what I am going to recommend as my bet for this game. I think this will also be a high scoring game since both teams have the capability to score so I am also going to suggest betting on the over 2.5 goals bet.
