Watford vs Southampton – Premier League : On a match of the Premier League’s 23rd round, Watford hosts Southampton at Vicarage Road
Round after round we have witnessed the bookies overestimating this Southampton. But this valuation hasn’t been true in reality.
After a good campaign in the Premier League last season, the team has been having a first half of the season to forget in this competition.
They occupy the 17th place with 20 points conquered so far.
That’s only 1 place above the relegation zone. Their moment of form isn’t good. On the last match, the team has beaten Fulham in the FA Cup.
But on the Premier League, the team hasn’t won since November of last year, when the defeated Everton 4-1 at home. That’s 9 matches without a single win.
Speaking of that, as visitors, Southampton have won only once, with the other results being 4 draws and 5 defeats.

Watford is making a campaign slightly better than their opponents’, although they also suffer from some inconsistency, alternating between great and not so great streaks.
Marco Silva’s team occupies the 10th place of the Premier League with 25 points conquered. They have a 5-points advantage over Southampton and the first time inside the relegation zone.
Playing at home, the team has 3 victories, 3 draws and 5 losses, having scored 17 gaols and conceded 23. This has been one of the team’s characteristics throughout all the competition, which is scoring and conceding a lot of goals.
Watford vs Southampton – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe that these high odds for Watford are justified by the team’s negative record at home.
But we have to take into account that Southampton also isn’t great away from home and are in an awful moment of form.
