The outcome of Friday night’s Premier League game between West Ham and Watford could have a massive say in deciding which, if any, of the two teams get relegated this season. Both could yet survive, but Bournemouth’s unexpected win over Leicester means neither is safe, yet.
Both teams come into the match on the back of confidence-boosting wins and, with recent games between the two sides producing plenty of goals, our West vs Watford tip is more than 2.5 goals at even-money (2.00) or better.
West Ham have been hit and miss since returning from lockdown and have failed to score twice in defeats against Burnley and Spurs. But they’ve also shown they can score plenty of goals on going days, with a 3-2 win over Chelsea, a 4-0 win over Norwich, and a 2-2 draw against Newcastle. That means three of West Ham’s last four games have produced more than 2.5 goals.
Watford looked potentially doomed to suffer the dreaded drop after consecutive defeats against Burnley (0-1), Southampton (1-3), and Chelsea (0-3), but they’ve bounced back 2-1 with wins against both Norwich and Newcastle. That means there have been more than 2.5 goals in Watford’s last four matches.
The last two West Ham vs Watford head-to-heads have also produced plenty of goals, with West Ham winning those 4-1 and 3-1. Both teams have changed their managers since, but both Nigel Pearson and David Moyes have encouraged attacking tactics. That’s why over 2.5 goals is our West Ham vs Watford tip.
