Reason For Liverpool vs Watford Betting Tips

  • Liverpool are unbeaten at home in the Premier League since they lost to Crystal Palace in April 2017.
  • Watford have lost six of their last seven matches against Liverpool, conceding 25 goals in the process.
  • Liverpool have seen at least three goals in all eight of their Premier League home games this season.
  • Watford have lost their last 12 top flight matches against teams starting the day at the top of the league, a run stretching back to 1986.

Liverpool continue to show the hallmarks of success

This season, Liverpool have moulded themselves into a team capable of grinding out victories even when they don’t necessarily deserve them. This, many say, is the hallmark of a great team, and they continued in that vein in midweek with a 2-0 win at Salzburg to send them through to the Champions League knockout stages.

Liverpool’s winning ways have turned the Premier League into something of a one horse race as we approach the halfway point. Jurgen Klopp’s men are eight points clear of Leicester in 2nd, and their 3-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend made it seven league wins on the bounce. They are unbeaten in the top flight since their very first game of 2019, and they haven’t lost a Premier League match at Anfield since April 2017.

Third-time lucky for Watford as they appoint Nigel Pearson

It’s abundantly clear that Watford are huge underdogs coming into this game, and that’s before you even consider the visitors’ own form. The Hornets have won just one league game this season and are already on their third manager of the campaign.

That sole victory came against 19th placed Norwich, and Watford’s nine defeats from 16 games leaves them rock bottom of the table and some six points adrift of safety.

Away from home Watford have lost five of their eight Premier League games, including an 8-0 demolition at the Etihad. On Saturday they come up against a team that have won 15 league games on the bounce at home, scoring an average of three goals per game at Anfield this season. Anything but a Liverpool win here looks incredibly unlikely, and we’re also expecting a fairly high scoring affair.

High scoring home win expected at Anfield

That’s because every one of Liverpool’s home games this season has seen at least three goals scored, and they’re actually yet to keep a clean sheet at Anfield. Watford haven’t exactly been the most prolific going forward, but their catastrophic defence has seen them concede an average of 2.13 goals per away game this season. For this reason, backing a Liverpool Win and Over 2.5 Goals looks a very solid option to kickstart the weekend.

Liverpool’s lack of clean sheets and their average of three goals scored per home game also make a 3-1 correct score prediction look a tasty opportunity in the correct score markets.
