Stoke vs Watford 31 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions

Watford signed Gerard Deulofeu from FC Barcelona and that signing shows that this is a team that wants to compete. This week they travel away from home to take on a struggling Stoke City in the English Premier League. Both teams will be desperate to win this game so we should be able to watch some great football.

Stoke City have been struggling this season and they will know that they need wins at home if they wish to avoid relegation and remain in the Premier League next season. This is a great opportunity for a win since Watford are not out of their league and they are at home. There are many issues for Stoke City at the moment but defending has been the biggest. Stoke City will need to defend well if they wish to get a win at home against the Hornets.

On the other side of the coin, Watford will also see this as the perfect opportunity to get a win. Looking at form over the season, Watford are far ahead and that will give the Hornets a massive confidence boost. Playing away from home at Stoke is never easy but looking at the two sides, I think that Watford will be good enough to get a win.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good enough price to bet on Watford to win this game outright. This is the best betting option and any staked bet is good in my opinion. In addition to that, I also like the over 2.5 goals. Stoke City have defensive issues and that might cause this to be a high scoring affair.
