Watford vs Bournemoth 27 Feb 2016: EPL Preview and Predictions

Soccer | Watford (9th) Bournemouth (15th)

Watford will be taking on Bournemouth in a game that should be well contested and played with a lot of passion and heart. Both teams are new to the Premier League and it looks like they both might be staying up this season so it will be good to see how they play against one another. Watford will be at home for this clash and that should play a big role in this outcome since both side rely heavily on the support of their home fans.

Bournemouth have been very surprising as they have managed to beat and get points against some of the best teams in England. This side has a great fan base and they have used that to slowly build their confidence.  This team is coming off a loss against Stoke at home but they are a team with heart so that should not bother them too much. I like this side but they are away from home here and it is always tough to back a team like Bournemouth when they are away from their home ground.

Watford on the other hand will be at home and this side has been playing quite well. They have a lot of talent in the front line and they are pretty solid at the back. We can see this by the fact that they are in the top half of the ladder so that should give them some confidence. They will have a big home crowd this weekend and that should be enough in my opinion to get them over the line here.

Watford are paying a really good price here considering they are in better form and are at home. We are getting over 2.00 which is a steal in my opinion since I don’t see the home side not winning here. I think also taking the under 2.5 goals is a pretty safe bet as well since Bournemouth have very few goals in them and a 1-0 or 2-0 outcome is the most likely.
