Vicarage Road gets ready to host the Premier League meeting between Watford and Bournemouth this weekend. The two teams are locked together on 13 points for the campaign and Watford have the slender edge owing to a slightly better goal difference. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Watford went four games without a win after losing 2-0 against Arsenal during the weekend. The last win for the club was at home against Tottenham at the start of September.
Bournemouth came up with a late winner to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium. The result makes it four consecutive wins at home for Bournemouth, who have lost two on the bounce in away games.
The recent matchup between Watford and Bournemouth also took place at the Vicarage Road with the game finishing as a 2-2 draw. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a win for Watford

Bournemouth may be at a price of 3.50 to win the game, but it is difficult to back a team that has not been able to win in the last six trips to the Vicarage Road. Even though Watford have a five-year drought with regards to a home win over the Cherries, they have started the campaign in excellent fashion. Despite being winless in four matches, it is difficult to look past the brilliant home run for Watford at the start of the 2018-19 campaign – three wins in four. Bournemouth have the potential to be sceptical after falling to back-to-back away defeats. Our preview would pick a win for the home team.

Watford vs Bournemouth draw odds: 3.60
Bournemouth win odds: 3.50
Correct Score odds
Watford have a strong attacking potential with Garcia being able to come up with several variations. The skill of players like Roberto Pereyra and the physicality of names like Troy Deeney have been combined quite effectively, but Watford have been unable to shut up shop in the last three home games. Bournemouth have the ability to find different scorers and they have scored twice in each of the last two trips to Vicarage Road. Our correct score prediction would stick with a 2-1 win for Watford.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This match is expected to produce goals from both teams as Watford have displayed an inability to keep things tight at the back. Four out of the last five Premier League matches at Vicarage Road have completed with a 2-1 score. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Andre Gray has been the player on form for Watford in the last few games. Even though he was quite disappointing in the loss against Arsenal, the striker has the ability to get his first goal in five games against Bournemouth throughout his career. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Gray.
