What Trueform says for Watford vs Southampton
Watford can return to seventh place in the Premier League table by edging out Southampton at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.
The Hornets have secured five straight victories when facing teams outside of the top six and appear to be playing with great confidence at present.
Saints are coming off a 3-1 loss at Newcastle, so 23/20 for a home win has to be our initial Watford vs Southampton prediction.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford have put in a series of solid performances this month and maintained that by prevailing 2-1 at Huddersfield, with Gerard Deulofeu bagging both goals.
The Hornets had previously beaten Fulham 4-1, qualified for the FA Cup final via an extra-time triumph over Wolves and were competitive in a 1-0 loss to Arsenal, despite going down to 10 men early on.
“We are so happy to play one final and be fighting for a trophy,” Deulofeu said. “But first of all, we want to finish seventh.
“We have tough games and we have to think first about that four or five games. Otherwise, we will go to the final in not the best way.”
Looking at the Watford vs Southampton odds, we like 17/2 for another 2-1 victory here.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Mariappa, Masina, Cathcart, Kiko, Sema, Doucoure, Hughes, Capoue, Deulofeu, Gray.
Watford remain without suspended captain Troy Deeney, while Tom Cleverley (calf), Domingos Quina (shoulder) and Jose Holebas (hamstring) are still missing.
Roberto Pereyra and Adalberto Penaranda are in contention after overcoming hip and hamstring injuries respectively.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton had only lost to Manchester United and Liverpool during an impressive run of four wins in six games but slipped to a disappointing defeat at Newcastle.
Ayoze Perez hit a hat-trick for the Magpies and Saints could only respond with a 59th-minute strike by Mario Lemina.
Cardiff’s loss on Sunday kept them five points behind Southampton, but Ralph Hasenhuttl is taking nothing for granted.
He said: “We have made a very good performance in the second half of the season, but we still are in trouble, that’s for sure.”
Jannik Vestergaard (groin) and Jan Valery (illness) both missed the trip to Newcastle, along with goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and defender Matt Targett, who are carrying unspecified fitness issues.
That leaves the visitors stretched at the back, so we’re prepared to take them on and 11/4 for Deulofeu to score in a home win completes our Watford vs Southampton betting tips.
Last Southampton line-up: Gunn, Yoshida, Stephens, Bertrand, Bednarek, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Redmond, Hojbjerg, Sims, Ings.
Forward Michael Obafemi (hamstring) continues his rehabilitation.
