Watford betting preview with Betway

Sofiane Feghouli celebrates his goal against West Bromwich Albion

It’s been almost two weeks since West Ham’s last game. Since then, the Hammers squad have travelled to Dubai to soak up some sun and put in the hard yards at a warm weather training camp.

As well as vital fitness work, the trip will have been an opportunity for the latest additions to the squad to get to know their teammates better and help develop those all-important on-pitch relationships.

They’ll hope all their efforts will bear fruit on Saturday evening when they travel to Vicarage Road to play an unpredictable Watford side.

The Hornets’ home advantage gives them the slight edge in terms of the odds, with a Watford win at 8/5, a West Ham victory at 19/10 and the draw at 21/10.

The Hammers will be looking to avenge their defeat at London Stadium when the two sides met earlier in the season.

It was a game that saw six goals, and given that there have been four goals in each of West Ham’s four previous games, we could be looking at another high scoring encounter.

It’s 19/20 for over 2.5 Total Goals in the match and 11/5 for more than 3.5 Total Goals.

The Hammers have only lost once in their last five fixtures and picked up 10 points in the process. Another victory today with both teams to score is 9/2.

A large part of the Hammers’ recent success has been because of in-form Andy Carroll. The talismanic striker has four goals in his last four appearances and could make the difference again on Saturday evening.

Carroll is 6/1 to open the scoring and 9/4 to score at any time during the match. You can also get him at 6/1 to be the last goalscorer.

Michail Antonio scored a brace when the sides last met in September, and is 20/1 to repeat the feat. He’s also 11/4 to score at any time.

You might also want to think about when the Hammers are likely to score. Seven of their last 11 goals have come after the first 45 minutes, and they’re 4/5 to put the ball in the Hornets’ net in the second half.

Slaven Bilic’s men are also developing a knack for late goals. Four of their last 11 have come in the 76th minute or later.

If you think there could be another last gasp Irons goal, you can back them to score their final goal between the 76th and 90th minute at 13/5.
