West Ham vs. Watford prediction - 15:00 EST
Best Bet - 2u - West Ham to win @ +140
- Watford haven't scored in any of their previous 4 road games
Both West Ham and Watford sit three points clear of Bournemouth who currently hold 18th positon in the Premier League and could get relegated and it's no understatement to say that the winner of this game will stay up. Whilst not mathmatically correct, a win here makes it very unlikely that you'd get relegated.
Watford, despite some positive moments this year, haven't scored in 4 away games, losing every one. They've been leaky at the back too, in their past 4 games they've conceded to a poor blunt Norwich attack, Newcastle and then 3 in games against both Southampton and Chelsea.
West Ham have played well since the restart, despite dropping points at times. They are the strongest team of those fighting to stay up and they are also in form, having battered Norwich 4-0 last time out. Anything can happen in these tight games but +140 looks like a very good price given the better quality in their ranks.
1u - Michail Antonio to score first @ +700
With Watford hiring blanks on the road, it makes sense to pick a Hammers player to break the deadlock, and who better than riding the hot hand and going for Michail Antonio.
Antonio has arguably been the form-player in the Premier League since the restart. He's looked impossible to handle at times, finding great positions on the field to maximise his power and strength. He's look dangerous in the air and with the ball at his feet and you really must fancy him to score today.
He's fresh off the back of scoring all four goals against Norwich, adding to goals against Newcastle and Chelsea before that. At +700 he is well worth a play here.
