Betting odds & tips

Burnley is favourite to beat Watford at 6/5 (2.2) with bet365. At 5/2 (3.5) to win, Watford are considered underdogs.

Wout Weghorst is 4/1 (5.0) to be first goalscorer, while Matej Vydra is rated 11/2 (6.5).

Both teams have had difficulty finding the net in their recent matches, so there is some value in backing under 2.5 goals at 8/11 (1.73).

Burnley still have just one win on their record this season, but they have been able to chip away at the gap to the rest of the league by picking up several draws in recent months.

Watford, however, are on a dismal run. They have drawn one and lost eight of their last nine matches, last tasting victory on November 20.
