Watford and Southampton are two side that both desperate to win a game of football. This weekend they will face each other and that should result in a good, evenly matched game of football. The Hornets will be the home side meaning that might give them an advantage.
Watford are a side that are very well organized and that results in them winning some game early in the season. Red Cards and bad luck halted the progress for the Hornets but with a break in games, the Hornets should be fresh and good again. This is a game where they will be up against a team they will be expected to win and as a result, it will be interesting to see how they handle that expectation.
On the other side of the coin, Southampton are a side that are in a relegation battle. This team has been playing very poorly lately and with some of their big players leaving the club, things are only going to get harder for the Saints. Playing away from home against Watford will not be easy since Watford are in better form that they are.
With all that in mind, I am going to predict that Watford will win this game. The Hornets are playing the better football and are also going to be at home so that should be enough for them to get the three points. We are getting a good price on Watford to win this game and as a result, that is the option which I like. In addition to that, I am also a fan of the over 2.5 goals since both sides have goals in them.
