Watford take on Burnley at Vicarage Road hoping to pick up three consecutive wins in all competitions. The Hornets remain in a position to challenge for Europe but the sixth place is fast getting out of reach due to Manchester United opening up a nine-point advantage. Burnley have made a major jump away from the relegation places to open a three-point advantage over Newcastle in the 18th spot.

Burnley are in a good moment coming into the match but nervousness will be high within the team after pulling together four consecutive victories. Burnley may have picked up an away victory in the recent travels but this is a team that has only managed two away wins in 11 matches this season. Meanwhile, Watford remain quite decent at home with almost a 50% success rate. Our preview would go with a win for Watford.

Watford vs Burnley draw odds: 4.00
Burnley win odds: 5.00
Correct Score odds
Watford have been able to score at two goals per game over the last six matches. Burnley continue to struggle at the back but the return of 11 goals conceded in the last six games is a significant improvement compared to the club’s overall form in the 2018-19 campaign. The two teams have enough confidence in the offensive areas of the pitch to provide entertainment. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Watford.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The meetings between Burnley and Watford in the last two campaigns have witnessed over 2.5 goals in three out of the four matches. Burnley were defensively strong last season but it is not the case with the outfit in this current term. Even on Burnley’s recent run of form, there have been goals for the opponents. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Roberto Pereyra has been a decisive player for Watford this season and he has been able to hit six goals in the league so far. However, the 28-year-old has not scored since the goal against Chelsea on Boxing Day. It also happens to be his only goal in his last 10 appearances. Even then, our first goalscorer prediction would back Roberto Pereyra.
