Burnley vs Watford Betting Tips

Watford will be looking to take a big stride towards Premier League safety this weekend when they go head to head with Burnley.

Watford earned a valuable point in dramatic circumstances against Leicester City last weekend. The Foxes thought they scored the winner when Ben Chilwell stamped his name on the scoresheet in added time.

Unfortunately for City, Watford had other plans and managed to rescue a point as Craig Dawson hammered home the equaliser with one of the last kicks of the game.

One point may not be much however, in the context of the relegation battle, it could be the difference between playing Championship or Premier League football.

Watford now enter Thursday’s game with Burnley having moved up to 16th place in the table. Without that point from the Leicester game, the Hornets would have been level on points with 19th placed Aston Villa.

Following their comprehensive 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City, Burnley will be hoping for a better outing this time round.

Sean Dyche’s team are 12 points clear of the relegation places and they could go level on points with 9th placed Crystal Palace should they beat Watford.

The London outfit are priced as the favourites in this contest by the bookmakers. That’s despite a pretty horrid recent run away at Turf Moor.

Out of the last 11 times that the two teams have met at this ground, Burnley have won six while Watford can only boast one. However, it must be noted that the most recent clash at Turf Moor was the encounter won by the Hornets.

There are good cases to be made for both teams but nevertheless, our betting recommendation is to go for the draw which at the time of writing is priced at 11/5.

Burnley may not have much to play for however, they will be keen to improve on spanking they received from Man City. Watford, on the other hand, are fighting for their survival but visit a ground which historically they’ve struggled on.

A draw, therefore, seems to be the most reasonable way out.

    Jay Rodriguez nets 50th Burnley goal to see off Watford

    Jay Rodriguez gave Burnley cause for cheer after a tough week on and off the pitch as his 50th Clarets goal earned a 1-0 win over Watford.

    The evening started with the club delivering another forceful response to the ‘White Lives Matter Burnley’ banner flown over their 5-0 defeat at Manchester City on Monday night, while Sean Dyche awoke to headlines questioning his future at the club as he played down suggestions of a rift with the board.

    But Rodriguez’s stooping header earned three big points for his hometown club and kept Watford hovering just above the relegation zone.

    Dyche made no changes to the side thrashed by City on Monday but could at least fill out the bench three days on, with Phil Bardsley available after agreeing fresh terms and Mace Goodridge back from injury.

    In the wake of the banner flown over the Etihad, the club produced two banners of their own – ‘One Club For All’ and ‘This is Everyone v Discrimination’ – prominently displayed alongside the ‘Black Lives Matter’ message in the Jimmy McIlroy Stand.

    Players from both teams took a knee at kick-off, and Burnley’s positive response continued on the pitch as they had the better of the first half.

    Though Watford’s Craig Dawson spurned an early chance, heading straight at Nick Pope from Tom Cleverley’s free-kick, it was Ben Foster’s goal under the most threat in the early going.

    Rodriguez’s snap shot from an angle deceived the Watford goalkeeper, who could only parry it high in the air before punching clear under pressure from Matej Vydra.

    Rodriguez was offside when he headed in Josh Brownhill’s cross in the 14th minute, and then shot straight at Foster when the ball fell for him on the edge of the box.

    The best chance came in the 21st minute when Foster raced off his line but was caught in no man’s land, grateful to see Vydra’s lob strike the post before Rodriguez’s shot was blocked by Dawson on the line and Brownhill dragged an effort well wide.

    Watford created openings of their own but could not test Pope as the final ball was too often missing between Troy Deeney and Danny Welbeck.

    Nigel Pearson made a double switch at the break, with Abdoulaye Doucoure and Craig Cathcart replacing Cleverley and Christian Kabasele, and it seemed to spark some life in his side as they kept Burnley pegged back early in the second half.

    Space opened up for Will Hughes in the 50th minute but there was no bend on his shot as it whistled wide of the post.

    Pope spilt a Hughes corner on the hour but Cathcart’s snap shot was blocked, then moments later James Tarkowski made a goal-saving tackle to deny Welbeck after he and Deeney finally hooked up together.

    Deeney got up to head powerfully at goal from a corner, but Dwight McNeil was on hand to block on the line before Hughes blazed wide on the follow-up.

    But the drinks break seemed to help Burnley as the tide turned again, and they took the lead in the 73rd minute as Rodriguez got across his man at the near post and dropped low to head home McNeil’s cross.

    Vydra had a chance to double the lead in the 86th minute only to shoot straight at Foster after breaking the offside trap, and Burnley were grateful to see Adam Masina head over from a corner in the last minute of normal time.

     

    Betting On Burnley's Next Match

     

    Sean Dyche reflects on Burnley's win against Watford in the Premier League, highlighting the importance of Dwight McNeil to the Clarets' play.

    "It's been a tough week on and off the pitch for the club."

    Watford boss Nigel Pearson told Sky Sports: “I think what we have to do is reflect on the game as a whole and we were pretty fortunate to come in level at half-time. We didn’t impose ourselves on the game and made too many unforced errors and that made it difficult to play with any cohesion.

    “The irony is in the second half when the performance was much better and we had opportunities, we switched off at a goal-kick and conceded a goal from a goal-kick.

    “But there’s no point dwelling on situations like this. We’ve missed the chance to pick up some points, but give them credit because they are good at what they do.

    “We have to move on, there’s no point me spending too much time looking at the negatives, the players know how I feel about it and know themselves we didn’t play the way we can for long enough periods. We get over it and get on with it and look to the next game now.”
